Cut up


It continues to be summer and the weather continues to be hot and I continue to be pregnant (a very good thing -- not ready for you yet baby!). I don't have many maternity shorts, but I realized I could chop a pair of pants and create some shorts/capris/cropped something-or-other situation with them and so I did.


I am so so happy I bought these shoes for third trimester. At my baby classes, all you see are pregnant women in sandals and flip flops. That's all we can fit into! As for those baby classes? We're officially done! Do I feel full of knowledge and completely confident? Nope. But I know way more than I did when we started.


This is a little knotted necklace I thrifted a long time ago. The shirt is one of the first maternity items I bought. Sandals were totally bought for full price and totally worth it. The pants/shorts/cropped things were given to me by my friend Sherrie. I hope she doesn't mind that I cut them up!


I am so grateful to be off of work. I didn't plan it this way on purpose, but I'll take it. If I could have perfectly planned it, I would have been due right around the end of the school year. So many teachers have stories of going into labor while in the classroom! Having some summertime is nice though. It gives me time to properly nest, and now instead of just feeling intensely exhausted and pushing through it, I feel intensely exhausted and take naps! I much prefer the nap option, I tell you what.

Yes, napping is the greatest thing when pregnant! And I totally remind the sandals/flip flops thing in the 3rd trimester...except for me, since I was pregnant in the winter the only thing I could fit into was crocs and snow boots...haha. Rest up :-)

Very summer chic! I love the knot necklace. I wonder how hard that would be to handmake...

Aaaaaaaah the sheer pleasure of taking a nap when your body and mind demands it! And it looks like you're enjoying some lovely summer days outdoors before "your time" comes. You look fabulous, fit and all glowy-like. Flip-flops? oh yes please. I had one winter pregnancy and what an annoyance it was to ask for help with shoes in the final trimester! The other three just happened to be summer babies, but oh my the heat! xo
