Hello beauties! Tonight I wanted to share some of my mom-friendly outfit staples that have gotten me through the last few weeks of pregnancy. I’m now in my 8th month, have poor balance, am constantly hot, and feel like I can barely walk across the room so I absolutely NEED comfy clothes and practical shoes.
If you’re like me, the problem is, we don’t like practical looking anything! Thus, I searched high and low for some cute shoe options to wear & to show you gals! I know that some of you are thinking platforms = not practical, but for a heel-loving gal, these babies are the bee’s knees! Not only can I still chase my toddler in them, but I can also still balance myself with my giant prego belly. 😉 I haven’t even told you the best part about them– they are on sale for 1/2 off @ $25 right now!
The top and shorts are also very comfortable, but still stylish enough that I don’t feel like a complete fashion failure.
If you like the idea of the top I’m wearing, but you aren’t pregnant, I recommend trying a top with a cut more like this or this. I love the prices of both and the cuts look like they would be very flattering on a few different body types.
The shorts are something RANDOM Beckett and I found at Walmart a few weeks ago. I actually have them in white and camo and I think every girl needs a pair for lazy/errand days when you want to feel like you’re in athletic wear, but still want to look slightly pulled together. They are $9 and STRETCH like crazy so I will be sporting these from now until after Baby Girl Witzke is born because they will fit me no matter what. I anticipate they will fit me next summer too, but we shall see.
About the posting schedule update:
The meal plans have been really fun, and I may continue them at a later date, but as of right now I need to figure out how to rework the format so it’s easier to read and follow. I also feel like there’s a limited number of those posts I want to do because I kinda like to have meals on rotation every month so if I were just doing this with my own family and not sharing it with you, I would keep rotating through the meal plans and recipes I already made.
So, for now, I am going to start using my Monday post to link to my latest artwork so you guys can see what I’m up to other than my tutorials on Wednesdays. I am also considering doing something different for Thursdays, but for now I will continue posting beauty or fashion-related vids for that.
Beckett’s really excited to start posting on Fridays again and he’s already getting his post for this week ready. As a sneak peek, I will tell you that we recently switched cell phone providers. Come back Friday to hear about our phone fiasco and why we put ourselves through it.
