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.

PinkBlush Cozy Maternity cardigan OOTD

Holy flippin’ cow I just realized there’s only 2 weeks and a few days until I’m out of the second trimester (meaning honeymoon phase of being pregnant, meaning tons of energy and feeling somewhat great overall) is over. That means…it’s back to square one: fatigued, low energy, more acid reflux and little sleep during the night. I felt my energy droop down last week and I had Scott look into when the 3rd trimester starts….week 27. Oof! Almost there. Knew it!

Here I’m wearing another PinkBlush Maternity sweater (gifted) that is totally just like a regular cardigan. It’s super soft and drapes perfectly over the shoulders. It’s in one of my favourite colours: rust, and I’ve gotten two compliments on it already, one being from my Mom lol.

If you want to shop for it on PinkBlush website search for the: rust chenille soft knit dolman cardigan 👌🏻. It comes in 3 colours & I’m wearing a size small. Thanks to PinkBlush for sending it over to me.

OOTD 22 weeks pregnant

I’m currently 24wks pregnant, photos were from a few weeks ago.

I’m not one to complain, but let me elaborate once I say it. The worst part about pregnancy for me is sleeping and eating 😭😂.

Elaborating: the acid reflux that keeps me awake at night and uncomfortable. It started later on with bebs. But with this pregnancy I’m only half way through. Give me all the tums.

Secondly. The food. More specifically my tongue. I get so sensitive to everything. Things burn my tongue and my tongue gets raw and so so sooooo sore to the point where I can finish some meals. It’s not all acidic stuff either like you’d think. Apples, strawberries cause it. But I can eat all the oranges. I made homemade fudgesicles and boyyyyy I tried to finish one and just had to put it back in the freezer 😭..and if that wasn’t bad enough, I get geographic tongue which doesn’t cause pain but is gross to look at.

Look at how proud bebs look after he climbed up that staircase, and is waving at Mama!!
Go ahead, complain about a few things to me in the comments lol. Whether pregnancy related or not! Being preg during summer is no joke. I’ve never been so overheated in my entire life. This photo was taken when it was cooler out…but I seriously cannot wait for sweater weather to arrive so I can wear this one in particular way more often. I tend to pop this on in the mornings since I get up at 6am everyday lately (and it’s obviously chillier then).

And, not to complain but to compliment…oh my good golly this Marnie Turtleneck Sweater from Shop Oriane (gifted to me) is absolutely so fantastically cozy. The mornings and evenings here where I am in California are finally starting to cool down and allow me to wear some comfortable long sleeved tops. This one is a maternity brand, but as you can see you can totally rock it when not pregnant either, since it’s not ruched at the sides or have a specific “spot” for your growing belly. I LOVE it.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Marnie Turtleneck Sweater
H&M maternity leggings (and in other pics: non-maternity Zara jeans)
Lucky Brand loafers
