Can I Live In This Shawl?

Worn to my mid-pregnancy ultrasound followed by some last minute work reviewing my book proofs. Side note, can I just live in this shawl for the next few months?

All the Frills: Nesting

Things are still very much in progress here, but I did recently get my ass in gear and made a pretty thorough start on getting the nursery ready. We’re welcoming a little girl but it will probably come as no surprise to most readers that I’m not really a fan of things pink and super girly so we kept things more in blues, greys, and yellows. Our wall art featuring notable queens and female leaders from history is my nod to the baby’s gender however.

That Awkward Stage

I’m sort of at that awkward stage where I’m showing quite a bit but haven’t yet gotten so big that I’m ready for maternity wear (luckily I have a wardrobe that consists of a lot of loose-fitting tunic tops and leggings so it’s relatively easy to make due for the time being, all things considered).

This red tunic style dress was definitely a titch tight when I wore it (incidentally shopping for nursery supplies) so I think it’s now going to be relegated to the back of my closet for the next few months but I am glad I got one more wear out of it.

The All Forgiving Cape

I’ve fallen, and fallen hard, into the seductive snare of capes. It also helps that they are perfect for a five and a half month pregnant gal like me. Capes hide everything and are all forgiving. I love them.

Anyways, meet the newest addition to my growing cape collection.
