24 Weeks

Dress: The Attic People Vintage via eBay (remixed)
Cardigan: Target
Hat & Brooch: Antique Mall
Tights: We Love Colors
Shoes: Seychelles

Hello, hello,

I'm officially 24 weeks into this pregnancy and I think it's safe to say that I no longer fit into most of my skirts and fitted dresses.  It's elastic waistbands and tent style silhouettes all the way for me!  I pulled this retro cutie of a dress out of my closet to accommodate my ever-growing tummy this past weekend when the fam and I headed back to my hometown to attend my cousin's baby reveal party.

If you've never been one of these before - it's a whole party dedicated to finding out the sex of the baby & everyone wears either pink or blue.  My cousin's wife is exactly one month behind me to the day and neither of them knew the sex until they opened this huge box of balloons and surprise.....pink ones flew out.  It's a girl!  I'm definitely very excited for my little guy on the way to meet their little lady who will be arriving shortly after.  Cheers to babies all over the place these days :-)

Have a beautiful week darlings!

Love Bunches,

  2. What a fun idea for a party! How cute! And I can't even tell - you aren't showing much yet. I lvoe this mustard on yellow outfit going on here - so cute! And seeing you guys around your home is really sweet, it feels like vintage family photos, I love the one of Keane peeking out the glass door

  3. That's a cute idea for a party! Especially since people LOOOOOVE to buy baby clothes as presents. But wait - if neither of the future parents knew if it was a boy or girl, who organized the balloon color?

  4. Cute cute cute! I love the idea of a gender reveal party! And your Keane is the rosiest, cutest boy in PA!

  5. your photographs always have the best color and settings! this party idea is soooo cute!
