Okay so time does in fact fly even when you’re not working. Today marks the end of 2 weeks of maternity leave already! But I have got so much done and have needed every bit of it.
Still I look forward to the weekends when others can come out and play. I have a fun blend date tomorrow to bake cookies too And with any luck we’ll get our tree on Sunday.
So although I’m not working, I refuse to schlep around in sweats during the day (err, that and I don’t own sweats). I am trying to wear similar clothes that I’d wear on casual Friday or the weekends.
Here are a few more 3rd trimester looks for you:
This is what I wore to Zach’s boss’s cabin when he hosted a baby shower for us. I’ve got skinny Motherhood (under belly panel) jeans paired with a long sleeved navy maternity tee by Pea in the Pod, my red Express cardi, camel Alfani boots, and a cream and brown scarf (from a shop in SF).
An outfit made for shopping! 4 hours worth! Flat Steve Madden black boots (with foldover shaft), black Old Navy maternity leggings, and taupe tunic (via Marshalls)
Luckily I live in a place where the winters aren’t that cold, but I still need a jacket now and then. This is a fabulous trench by Vertigo that I got via Marshalls for a real steal. I can only manage one button, but that’s where the buckle-less belt comes in handy!
Okay now onto the fun stuff Baby clothes!
I thought I had a ton of baby clothes, but it turns out, I really think I’m going to need more.
And with this extra time on my hands, I’ve been obsessing over what to bring Sawyer home from the hospital in. Will he fit in a newborn outfit (under 7lbs and <18”)? Will he swim in the 0-3mo outfit? Footies? No footies? Pants? No pants (because of umbilical cord)? Knit hat? Cotton hat? Something uber fabulous or practical? GAHHHHH!
I’ve finally decided on two outfits and I plan to bring both!
Being that Mr Sawyer is arriving in December, I wanted to make sure he is cozy warm, so I found this incrediblly soft one-piece cream outfit that I adore. I searched high and low at the poshest of stores and found this at good ol’ Target (actually bestie picked it out )! Underneath I will put on a simple onesie, perhaps like the blue on to the side. And although the his feet will be covered and the cream one-piece has foldover mittens, I’m bringing both just in case. The knit hat completes the outfit (even though there is also a hood). And of course he will be cuddled up in a blue knit blankie thanks to my blend Jillian! *The cream one-piece and blue onesie are both newborn size.
What’s even more brilliant is that there is a through hole for the car seat to buckle him in. Love this aspect!
Now this outfit is a completely different look and more ‘mature’…ha! It’s all from Gap Baby and I think it’s so festive and appropriate for the holidays. A red plaid button down onesie paired with black pocketed knit pants. I managed to clip off the top of the hat, but it actually has reindeer antlers on it too! So appropriate for the season right! And this time he will definitely need little mittens and some toasty socks. He will be cuddled up in a fuzzy brown giraffe blankie that we were given from our friends Priya and Vijay. *This outfit is 0-3 months size.
Any thoughts or advice on the outfits? I’m all ears!!!!
Are babies and clothes like woman and shoes? There’s no such thing as too many?
What’s on deck for your weekend?
