Feelin' floral.

It's getting to be that time, folks when nothing I have in my closet fits the same way anymore.
And I'm holding on to what little figure I used to have.
Yet, I still find myself wandering around the part of a store that holds sizes 0-7.
Strategically, "missing" the maternity section.
And walking out of that said store with sizes that I could only fit 6 months ago.
And then realizing, when the heck was I planning to wear this?!
I've gotta get things together. A shift in thinking would help.
I mean, this baby is not gonna be a small one.
The husband was a twin and he weighed 7 pounds, while his twin bro weighed almost 9 pounds.
If that doesn't bring me back to reality,
then I'm sure the 60 extra pounds I'll gain by the end of this adventure definitely will.
Oh, the joys of pregnancy!

Anywhoo, the bump and I decided to wear something easy today.
A floral dress complete with cowboy boots and denim vest.
Ready to frolic in this California sunshine.

  1. Pregnancy is treating you well - you look gorgeous! Very jealous of the sunny weather you're having, we have risk of snow in England at the moment, great! xx

  3. You can't go wrong with a great floral dress and boots! Very Californian of you! I bet you could probably get by with just a bunch of thrifted dresses and some strategically placed belts if you wanted to avoid maternity clothes altogether!

  4. I can't imagine how hard it must be to shift from what you'd normally wear to other "maternity"-friendly clothing. But you really do look great, Ashley!

  5. the husband is a twin?!? fun! i tried to avoid the maternity section for the longest time. by my
    second pregnancy, they had some cool maternity clothes...so i invested in a pair of "stylish" jeans and wore them like evvry day!

  10. you look adorable! it's hard being pregnant for the first time - you're still desparately clinging to the body you once had all while in denial about the one you possess. it's rough going, but you'll bounce back quickly, I'm sure!

  17. Aaah you are a mom to be. That is so cute. You are going to enjoy dressing up your baby bump soon enough. I love this sundress...
    And a tip when buying maternity tops: good to invest in ones that are also breastfeeding friendly so you can use them after birth as well.
    Good luck to you and thanks for visiting my blog.
    I can't wait to see how you dress.
