Rainy Summer Day

 
J.Crew vest  |  Forever21 dress  |  Hunter boots  |  J.Crew belt  |  Goyard bag  |  Michael Kors watch
I went back to see the previous post where I wore the same vest. It turns out I was wearing almost an identical outfit minus the extra 500 pounds I’ve been carrying around. I’m definitely missing the slimmer side of me and can’t wait to get back in shape after baby #2 is out!
I’m 31 weeks today and can’t wait to meet this little one! By the way, is it just me or is there a crazy baby boom right now? I can name about 12-13 friends that are expecting! I’m excited that baby #2 will have lots of little friends around.

Utility Dress

Dress: Aritzia  |  Belt: J.Crew  |  Bag: Goyard  |  Shoes: Madewell 

I love the ruggedness of utility pieces. This dress has masculine details but the fit and length keep it fun and feminine. It’s a bit short, especially with my bump but I figure I can wear it with leggings underneath too. Because it was a bit sheer and very short, I layered my Gap Body nude slip underneath. This slip has become a lifesaver and I’ve worn it under so many dresses that are too sheer, too low, too short, too fill in the blank.

Hubbie and I went to see “Crazy Stupid Love” the other night and it was the perfect date night movie. We laughed, we cried (okay fine, that was just me) and were completely entertained throughout. Have you seen it? What did you think??

New Addition!

 
Jacket: Mackage Kenya  |  Skirt: Forever21  |  Sweater: Club Monaco  |  Sandals: Madewell  |  Bag: Goyard  | Cupcakes: Sweet Mandy B’s!
Now isn’t that a lovely sight? A pregnant woman with a death grip on her box of cupcakes.
 
It’s been consistently in the 90’s here in Chicago and we are dying of heat over here! I can’t seem to walk outdoors for more than a few minutes before sweating profusely and breathing heavily. Not my best moment. Anywhoo, this picture was taken months ago before it got so hot out and I haven’t had a chance to post it until now. 

 

I’ve been on the hunt for a leather jacket for a long time. I kept going back and forth between getting a cheap, fun piece or investing in a quality jacket. At the Aritzia annual private sale, I finally took the plunge and got myself this Mackage Kenya jacket. It was on sale, which helped it’s cause. I can’t wait till Fall hits so I can wear it again, if I can get my sausage arms through the sleeves that is.
