Twenty Five

Cardi: Modcloth
Scarf: Vintage//Yard Sale
Necklace: Vintage//Grandmother's
Shoes: Miss L Fire

Oh hello there, 

I won't be doing a pregnancy photo update every week, however I kind of feel like 25 weeks is a milestone.  This week, I will receive my rhogam shot from the Dr. since I have an rh-negative blood type.  Fun times, for sure.  Luckily, I've been through it once already so I know to expect.  Baby boy is moving around A LOT.  Seriously...it's like jumping jacks in my tummy all day and all night.  I feel his little kicks more prominently at night so perhaps this tiny guy will be a night owl like his mama.  Besides for that, I have been craving grapefruit with a nice helping of sugar on top nonstop.  

As for my dress - it's actually a skirt that Kristian from the Flock Together gals kindly sent over my way and I always do quite love a bold black and white piece like this.  I figured it would be better suited for me as a dress given that my baby bump has really been showing itself more and more these days.  You can see how classically pretty. Kristian styled the piece right here.  One warm day so far this year meant bare legs.  Now it's a crying shame that the cozy air did not stick around.  It's snow every day this week for me - anybody here up north want to hit the road and go south with me?  I'm pretty much so done with old man winter.

So if you're stuck in the snow like me, keep warm, drink tea, and cozy up darlings, 

Love Bunches,


  1. Of course that is a skirt - you're so damn cute. :) Love to hear about the lil man!!! I found him the CUTEst cardigan the other day. I almost died. I can't wait to send you all of these goodies.

  19. What a perfect way to style that skirt! I love the bold stripes and you have to be the cutest lady with a baby bump ever! Now is the time of year where we have to get all the citrus off the trees to make room for next years blossoms, and we are up to our ears in grapefruit! I wish I could have you over for some :)

  26. Oh, I have no idea what a Rhogan shot is, but I hope it's not painful!

    That skirt is so elegant and I like the fact that you wore it as a dress ;).

    Sending warm weather your way, hehe! :p

  27. I LOVE kristian's skirt as a dress on you with that pretty little cardi! & it just hit me... 25/4.. holy moly that's over 6 months! you look gorgeous and hope all goes ok w/ the shot. Does it leave you feeling ill after? I'm not sure what that does but do know j's brother had to have a full transfusion at birth because from his dad's blood because of a bad mismatch in blood types. anyway, besides the point we have an extra room in our rental home & are always welcoming visitors over here in sunny AZ : )

  28. I love your style!
    A stripe dress is so cute.
