Third Trimester Maternity Style – Casual Stripes

Oh, lookie here! It’s something you’ve never really seen from me before. A legit fashion post (ha)! Okay, I’ll admit here that I am shooting these photos myself  with a tripod and a remote control outside along the back brick of our house. Mama’s gotta do this during nap time, and Greg is not exactly someone I’d describe as a gifted photographer.

Anyway, ASOS graciously sent me some beautiful maternity clothes to get me through the last month or so of my pregnancy. I’ve decided I would have some fun with it and come up with a few third trimester maternity style posts. I’m definitely no seasoned fashionista, but I do love fashion and having fun with my clothes. I’m at the stage where nothing is fitting quite right and it’s really hot outside. Feeling comfortable, yet still put together, is a priority for me. Most days you’ll catch me in yoga pants I bought two sizes up, sports bras, and long tank tops. But if we’ve got somewhere to go, if I’m meeting friends, or going out to eat, I’ll step it up a notch.

3rd Trimester Maternity Fashion - ASOS

For me, I really like this look because we’re taking a basic look of striped shirt, shorts, and sneakers and giving it a twist. The shirt is a basic staple but with fun and unexpected split shoulders (I’m wearing them up today). I also have had a lot of fun layering long and short necklaces to give extra interest. When your fashion choices are pretty limited and you can’t fit in most of your closet, you experiment with accessories. Like I said, no fashion expert here, but it makes me feel good and it’s comfortable.

Mamas, what fashion pieces got you through your third trimester?

Date Night with P.F. Chang’s Summer Menu

Date Night at P.F. Chang's

Disclosure: Thank you P.F. Chang’s for sponsoring today’s discussion and for the tasty date night! It’s kind of embarrassing how long it’s been since Greg and I have had a night out sans kiddo. Long enough that I can’t even remember! After the longest few days of potty training, I was so emotionally burned out. Someone was definitely looking out for me because I was given the chance to head out to P.F. Chang’s to try their new summer menu items! It seriously…

Preggo Meg O. – 35 Weeks!

35 weeks pregnant

Here we are….35 weeks and 1 month and 1 day til D-Day! Looking just about the same, feeling a little more panicked that time is going so fast. It’s also crazy to go back and read this post from when I was 35 weeks pregnant with Kennedy. All of that stuff I was talking about…. the baby showers, the hospital classes, etc. – totally different experience being pregnant this time. No showers (I don’t need one, anyway), no preparedness classes….

Empties! Products I’ve Used Up (July 2014)

Empties - Products I've Used Up

I love “empties” videos! If you aren’t regularly watching makeup gurus on YouTube, you probably don’t know what an empties video is. Basically I’ve been collecting all the beauty products I’ve used up instead of throwing them in the trash/recycling. I love these kinds of videos because you get to see what people are actually using up! So I have been collecting my “beauty trash” for a few months now all to show you guys! There’s a lot of products that I’ve…
