outfit post maternity: black & white print dress, teal cardigan, black flats

(27 Weeks)
Inspiration - Old Navy

My new outfit formula is: maternity dress + cardigan -- basically what I wear to work 4 out of 5 days each week.

Week 27:
Symptoms - Mostly just a sore lower back. Starting to grunt when I have to get up from sitting on the floor. Feel a bit like when you ride in a car/plane without standing for many hours and then try to get up and walk - a little creaky & stiff around the joints. :)

Food - Doctor told me to slow down on carbs & sugar because I'm already few pounds past the suggested total 35 lb weight gain with three months to go. Which isn't awesome news because that is exactly what I want to eat. Carbs covered in sugar. Mmmm carbs... (<-- Homer Simpson voice.)

The only unusual craving I've had (beyond wanting ALL THE CANDY) is for sparkling water with lime. Normally I'm a flat ice water kinda gal and would only drink sparkling if I had no other options and was dying of thirst. Now I could drink sparkling water by the gallon. Weird that my tastes could change that much.

Exercise - My best friend and her co-workers are including me in their weekly fitbit steps challenges. So I'm walking a good 4-5 miles throughout the day. Have done the Tracy Anderson pregnancy DVD a grand total of two times in the four months I've owned it. Oops. Want to try to focus more on getting stronger for the finish line in 3 months!

Clothes - Feel like after sharing the maternity business casual capsule wardrobe - you've seen all the work pregnancy clothes I own & have been wearing over and over again. Although, one new purchase is this $15 Asos dress I'm wearing today. Guess it'll be a few more casual posts in upcoming weeks! :)

Body - Staring to feel very pregnant. Which makes me really start to wonder how in the world my body is going to continue to grow larger for three more months! Eep!

outfit post: white camp shirt, navy pencil skirt, leopard wedges

Inspiration - Fendi via Net-a-Porter

Umm this is a total duplicate outfit. I try to keep track of what inspiration photos I've used to create outfits for the blog but every so often I get a little mixed up and take a photo of an inspiration photo I've already used. In this case I dressed my bookclub friend up in an outfit I wore on the blog back in July when the pencil skirt barely still fit my growing baby bump.

But after thinking about it (and running really low on my saved up pictures of my 'body double' dress up session) I thought that this is such a good classic with a touch of fun type outfit - that I'd share it again. But maybe because it's my clothes on someone else - it's sorta different? :)

outfit post: coral jacket, grey wide-leg pants, pointed toe black pumps

Inspiration - Le Ch√Ęteau

I really really like the simple yet fun combination of the pieces that make up this outfit. This fun bright blazer is a great way to add some color into a basic outfit - and at $25 it's quite a deal. (I bought a medium but would have slightly preferred a large -- and the shipping took for-ever but wasn't too bad considering the cheap-o price.)

The only thing with this outfit is that my (non-pregnant) friend who is substitute modeling  ("body doubling") my clothes in this picture is quite a bit smaller then me - so the fit of the pants is a little big on her. (Here I am wearing the same pants last February and January 2012 with somewhat of a better fit.)
