outfit post: exciting announcement!

Hubby & I are excited to announce we are expecting a little girl in January! 

A few month ago when I found out I was pregnant I started taking extra photos when I took my regular outfit picture so that I could have some backup outfits to use here until I was ready to announce the news. So the past few weeks I've been a little sneaky and sharing those pictures instead of recent daily ones.

During this time I've also been thinking about how to handle the blog for this next year of change in my life. So far I've decided that I definitely want to keep posting outfits but I don't want this to become entirely a maternity outfit blog.

I've been brainstorming a handful of ideas that I think I would enjoy if I were a non-pregnant regular blog reader to post 3-4 days each week. And then I'm thinking that I will post 1-2 days of what I'm actually wearing so those who are interested in maternity wear can see how I figure out dressing my pregnant changing body. A little bit for on both sides of the bump fence. :)

So this is very exciting and totally unknown territory for me! I think it will be a fun adventure. I'll do my best to keep things here entertaining and I hope that you bare with me as I figure this all out! :)

  1. Congratulations to you and your husband! What exciting times lay ahead for you both. I look forward to seeing how you dress your new shape. I always struggled with this and although my youngest is now 9, it is will still be interesting to see. Julie

  2. Congrats! I'm pregnant too, due in February, so I can't wait to see how you style your bump. Looking forward to great ideas.

  3. Congratulations!! Something that helped me when I was pregnant was to buy clothes one or two sizes too big - that way you can wear them once you have the baby and start to lose weight.

  4. Congratulations on your exciting news! We have a three month old baby girl and she's brought so much joy to our lives already. I'm excited to see your maternity outfits - I enjoyed dressing while pregnant even more so! It's a lot of fun to stock up on basics and rely more heavily on accessories for that extra touch. Enjoy!

  5. Congratulations to your and your husband MK! Hope you can continue with the blog, independently of it being a regular outfit blog or a maternity one! I am sure we will be able to keep using your ideas as inspiration!

  6. Congratulations!! It is so exciting! I am currently pregnant (due Sept. 29) and would LOVE to see you feature professional maternity style. Even though I won't be pregnant while you are - I know it will be an awesome resource for other women looking for "wear to work" attire. And hey, maybe it'll be a resource I come back to eventually ;)

  11. Congratulations!! Very exciting news and I hope you have a healthy and easy pregnancy & delivery! Even as a non-pregnant person it's fun to watch people adapt their style for changing figures and lifestyles once the baby is here! I'm sure you'll do a great job with both!

  21. Warmest congratulations to you. My one and only is 21 today. Yes, the time goes fast. When you reach my point in mommyhood you will say it too. Enjoy every single moment.

    I'm fairly new here and have been inspired (stolen) many of your outfits. It's so easy because we shop the same stores and so many of your items are in my closet :-)

  22. Congratulations! I just had my first baby in June and am also a fashion blogger. I kept it secret the whole time because I just didn't want people to know. I used photoshop and concealing poses. I too didn't want my blog to become a blog about pregnancy since there are others who are doing that way better than I could've done. Congrats again!

  30. Congratulations!! I'm relatively new to your blog (last month or two), but in that time it has been SO helpful and inspirational. I've pretty much done a huge wardrobe overhaul in that time. My first child is a year and a half now, and this recent wardrobe overhaul has really been fun (and important). I'm finally taking time for me!

    We're planning for our second soon, so I'm looking forward to your pregnancy posts!

  41. Fabulous news, congratulations! I didn't struggle too much with maternity outfits (I lived in leggings and sweaters for the last 6 months of my pregnancy) but I did struggle greatly with post-baby fashion. Between nursing bras and breast-feeding accessible tops....I mean, one can only wear a summer dress for so long! I always felt like a slob. Can't wait to see your creative fashionista inspirations at work through this wonderful journey.

  42. Congratulations- I am so thrilled for you! I feel I am echoing the masses but your blog has really changed how I pack and dress in general and I am so grateful that you put the time and energy into it. I've already had my kids (my youngest is two and my oldest is also a January baby) but I am very excited to see how things progress for you.

    P.S. Target and Old Navy have great maternity clothes, which you probably already know!

  44. Congrats!

    As someone who isn't pregnant and not sure if I ever will be, I still love seeing maternity styling. The styling and combos can still be inspiring and easily converted to non-maternity styles.

  46. Congratulations MK! Wonderful news :) I had a son two years ago this August and the time certainly flies! I found your blog about a year ago when I was looking to discover a different fashion sense for my body's new shape after being pregnant. You gave me the confidence to feel proud of my body post baby. I look forward to following this next part of your journey. Thank you for sharing it with us!

  48. aww congrats! I am expecting too and I think I just hit that point of "my pants don't fit any more", so I guess I need starting to stock up maternity clothes. Can't wait to see your posts, and again, big congrats!!
