Black White & lots of Red!

4.03.2016


Hello lovelies! It's been a while since my last post, but isn't that the story of my life lately?! I know eventually I'll write more frequent on here but I'm still trying to work that out. Anyhoo, I shared several of these photos on Instagram a while back and wanted to share the rest on here. I have several other photo shoots to share so I better get this on up first!

For those of you who have had children, did you find a style or pieces of clothing you preferred while pregnant? I've found myself getting more retro as I get bigger. I've always been into the 50's/60's but lately I've been punching it up a notch. My previous pregnancies I didn't really care and wore a lot of comfy clothes but it always left me feeling frumpy. There is something about vintage modern styles (complete with pin curls) that makes me feel amazing.

I bought this dress on sale a month ago and decided I better get a wear in before it's retired to my closet till after baby. In these photos I'm 17 weeks. A small still fits me fairly well especially when I push up the waist. Sadly the top is huge on me! I never understand why so many smalls have such huge tops. Usually if you are a small, your top is too (unless you got a boob job and that shouldn't really count). Sorry grumble moment. Haha I come across this all the time.



I have lots I want to share but because these photos are so behind, I'm going to save those thoughts for more current posts. I'm determined to get ahead!


I love the photo below. I was in a great mood that day and I dunno I guess it really showed towards the end of this shoot. Gotta take those good pregnancy days where I can get them.


I had to share the photo below! Haha a lot of my photos tend to be filled with these (or me being weird). When my husband is the one photographing instead of me, the camera never stops clicking. Below the wind blew hair in my mouth. Shortly after I discovered I walked into a spider web. The spider dangled inches from my face. You can see spiderwebs on my arm. Does this ever happen to you?


Outfit:
Cardigan: ModCloth
Dress: ModCloth
Belt: Very Old (ModCloth)
Tights: Old - Forever 21 (similar, I bought these before despite their review and loved them)
Shoes: Old - Francescas


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! New posts should be going out all week.

Till then...

Take Care & Enjoy,
♥ Heather

    1. You are too kind, thank you! I really need to work more on my pin curl technique, I'm totally loving it too!

  3. This dress is terrific! I totally feel you with dresses being too big on top. It's even worse now that I don't wear a small :( I remember shopping for prom dresses when I was in high school, and everything was too tight in the waist and too loose in the bust. But you look so lovely!

  4. You look gorgeous! That dress is really amazing! And I definitely was... er... not fashionable through Evie's pregnancy, haha! I posted pretty outfits and then immediately changed into yoga pants. I love the way you've been styling your hair lately!

    And I gotta say, for 17 weeks, to me you look so slim (and healthy!). I show RIGHT AWAY when I'm pregnant so I'm always surprised when you can't tell so well on other people! (I mean, this was me at 17 weeks with Evie: http://www.eccentricowl.com/2015/03/27/striped-maternity-dress-and-a-flower-in-my-hair/ haha! I liked looking super pregnant but also: I feeelt so pregnant!)

    1. Okay okay, in fairness unless I planned to spend the day out, in which I was dressed to kill, I'm usually at home in tees and leggings. So you aren't alone! And thank you! I found a simple pincurl method that seems to be working really well for me and I've been trying to critique it. I wish I could get a wet set to work but my curls frizz so much I can't get them to brush correctly.

      Thanks again, you're too kind! I've found with all my pregnancies I seem to be slow at gaining weight then it all explodes at the end. I'm trying to gain it more evenly this time so I don't get new stretch marks. We shall see how that goes. I also carry all my weight in my thighs and butt lol! I almost never wear fitted clothing because of that, although I will be in a future post! EEk! I love the photos in the link you sent! You look lovely as always.
