Big news and a polka-dot dress

Hey! Guess what, guys? I'm pregnant! Having a baby! Knocked up! There's a bun in the ol' oven!


Also I'm wearing a thrifted polka-dot dress, which is in and of itself exciting. Baby and a polka-dotted dress! This is all too much for one post!


I'm four months now, and I've spent the past three months being sick all the time, but that seems to be subsiding, and we're very excited to be pregnant and wanted this very, very much. Yay baby!


Yay polka-dots! I am thrifting with a growing belly in mind.


I'm also doing a little pattern-mixing here, which I realize is something lots of people do lots, but is sort of new for me. I've decided I might start treating black and white polka-dots as a kind of neutral. It works, right? The cardigan is thrifted as well (Isaac Mizrahi for Target), and I bought those bangles in Dublin on our honeymoon.


So that's my big news. I've broken it to my family, my friends, my coworkers and very recently my students.(Half of them were on to me because I was so nauseated so much of the time, and the ones in the know informed the ones not in the know.) It's a pretty crazy, exciting time!
