Hi friends! Hope you guys had a great weekend. David and I snuck off on Friday morning to Chicago for a romantic weekend away. This trip was our first weekend away from HDawg (and actually my first night ever away from him!) and it served several purposes... this year, we celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary, David's 30th birthday and my 30th birthday just around the corner. We had originally planned a big trip overseas, but we've had so much going on in life that we decided on this abbreviated but perfect weekend away. Oh and it was sort of a little babymoon, too! We had a great weekend spending some quality time together. We shopped, visited some fun sites and ate at some fabulous restaurants recommended by my girl Natasha, who recently visited the city. It was awesome!
While we were in the Windy City, I quickly learned that I am not so ready to dress a preggo bump in chillier temperatures. I was pregnant with H from December to August, so I spent most of my big pregnant summer months in big ol' maxi dresses and sundresses. I'm pretty sure I didn't wear a pair of pants from April to September, for real. Now that I am QUICKLY growing a belly bump here at sixteen weeks, it's time to pick out some fun fall fashion faves in the maternity department!
See? That sixteen week bump ain't no joke, people. It's amazing how quickly you grow the second time around. It's time to get my shop on! Here are some of my favorite cute fall preggo threads that I've found lately.
jean jacket / tan + black sweater dress / black + white striped dress / blue sweater dress / aqua striped tee (that I wore in the Chicago pics above!) / maternity skinny cords / maternity wool coat / polka dot pants / skinny jeans / printed top / mint sweater / hooded sweatshirt
I actually wore a pair of similar polka dotted pants like those above while I was out in Chicago. Mine were non-maternity that I picked up from Marshalls, but I may have to replace them soon with that Old Navy pair because they are one of my favorite pairs of pants, especially for work.
