30 weeks pregnant OOTD

Whoa. That didn’t take very long to reach 30 weeks, did it? Thought I’d show you a quick OOTD and the details of it all.

Also, check out the size of that pinecone bebs found on our forest adventure. It was so heavy! 

I’m so happy we finally have healthy air to breath. Never thought in a trillion years that would be something I’d take for granted. We were basically surrounded by wildfires for weeks on end. Today and yesterday we got more of a break and the AQI is reading green! Aka absolutely “normal” and healthy to head outside. I’m hoping it lasts.

Like my new backpack? Gaston Luga is a Swedish backpack retailer located in the heart of Stockholm. Though I have to admit, I wish there were more pockets on the outside of the pack too, for my water bottle. They have a small keychain hanging from it, where I can clip my car keys on and the back of the backpack there’s a little slot that’s big enough to fit my phone for easy access. 

Also huge shoutout to PinkBlush who has given me a few pieces of clothing (actually, all sweaters to be honest- my choices!) throughout this pregnancy. I’ve never been disappointed with their quality of clothing, not just maternity clothes – they also have regular women’s clothes too. Hot tip: sign up for their e-mails because I swear it’s weekly when they send me (and anyone who is signed up to their mailing list) a 40% off coupon for one item, or 30% off their entire site. It’s fantastic. I ended up buying two sweaters (which you’ll see one of them in tomorrow’s blog post) and wear them both often.

The only shoes that fit my pregnant feet…

We venture out to the forest on hot days to stay clear of the scorching sunshine and stay cool in the shade and explore together. These photos were from 2wks ago or so – since now we’re not heading out of our house at all, due to all of the smoke from the forest fires that have been burning for the last week.

Choosing my clothes and shoes wisely during pregnancy especially gearing towards my third trimester. I need to be as comfortable as possible. My shoes are a new EcoSmart extremely lightweight footwear brand that very well may be the most sustainable pair of shoes ever made.

Rackle Shoes are made of a sustainable hemp upper material and the soles are foam. Every part of this shoe has been manufactured to minimize waste and environmental impact – from the materials used all the way through to the kind of adhesives used, which is typically the most toxic part of the footwear manufacturing process.

The entire collection is unisex, comes in three colours and retails for $89. Do ya like ’em?

Earthy tones OOTD

These leggings (no joke) make me feel like I’m not even pregnant. They support my belly SO much, and make the area feel so much lighter. Good golly. Unreal. I’m so happy to be wearing them. They’re the BLANQI maternity belly support leggings (for reference the colour is Forest Night) to help the bump not feel so heavy in the front. We go on walks with the whole fam at least once a day (usually twice) for an hour or more, and these have made the walks way better. I always used to feel so heavy and slow. But I feel like these “lift” me up lol. They’re amazing.

This comfy tank is BLANQI too. It’s buttery smooth and has space for my belly to grow. BLANQI sent the set over to me a few weeks ago, so here I’m 23 weeks pregnant and enjoying taking bebs out on many of his summer adventures.

The VANS I’m wearing in this shoot I did, I picked up at DSW while my Mom was here visiting, so back in Jan/Feb or so. I kinda want to buy a second pair so I don’t ever wear them out. I rarely wear them because of it! But when I do, and come back inside, I get my magic eraser (or melamine sponge because it’s way cheaper and basically the same thing) and clean the white soles of the shoes so they always look brand spankin’ new lol.

Watch out for discounts and sales on BLANQI’s website – they have them frequently. Also! They have clothes (not just “workout style”) for new Mama’s/postpartum – not just preggos!

I’m nearing 26 weeks of pregnancy now, and unfortunately for us our A/C just *had* to breakdown during this heatwave we’ve been having this week – and it’s going to continue for another week or so. At least I’ll save on doing laundry because I’m literally wearing next to nothing, same with my little boy. We’re all sitting in front of the fan with a water bottle spritzer and staying soaking wet, having most the lights off in the house. Send me some recipes that I can use without turning on the oven, please! Also, send good vibes that hubs can fix the A/C without calling someone in and having it cost a few flippin’ grand because: Silicon Valley. Ooof….dyin’ over here. I’m already roasting because I’m pregnant, but this is way worse haha.
