Florals Stripes Maxis & Bumps Oh My!
floral cardigan c/o Tulle // stripe maxi, belt, & jade ring c/o Conversation Pieces // bump: 14weeks 3 days
Woohoo!! So excited that the cat is out of the bag! (by the way, where did that weird phrase come from and why does it mean what it means??!) I have tried to avoid full on outfit post the last few weeks as I have just completely felt it impossible to hide the bump. A doctor at church who has three kids herself hypothosized to me that you show faster with each consecutive birth because your "muscles remember what to do and just get to it." I'm thinking so far that that is for sure true. What about you mommas of multiples? Agree? Did you show faster?
In addition to showing faster I've also been sicker. I'm for sure over the hump, but those first few weeks were just the pits. Tired beyond belief, nauseous dizzy, and down right depressing. I just wasn't like that with M. But we've made it through. Thank you sweet sweet Jesus! We're feeling great and I've enjoyed actually being conscious about eating healthfully and exercising this time. Last time I kind of took a break from all that. Plus, I was so afraid of everything that exercise scared me. This time it is such a nice release and such a literal breath of fresh air. Good for my bones. Good for baby's bones.
Now that I'm not hiding the bump, I'm having fun showing it off. Maxi dresses and skirts will be the name of the game this go around. So comfortable and I still get to stay in trend this spring/summer. What's also great is that although I will be adding some maternity cut maxi's to my wardrobe, there are a lot of maxi's that I can still wear that aren't maternity. Especially skirts pulled up high over the bump. Love that look! I have a whole pinterest board of favorite "dress the bump" looks. Check it out here.
Last little note for the day -- If you haven't checked out Tulle yet, head on over there asap! I was first introduced to them trough Stitch Fix and quickly fell in love. "Vintage inspired modern clothing"... what's not to love about that! So many great cuts, textures, and patterns. They have quickly become one of my favorite new retailers. I think you'll love them too -- Check them out on twitter & facebook!
