black and white

maternity black pants, black and white stripe tee, kimono cardigan, birkenstocks 2

This outfit is all about basic neutrals - blacks and whites without a single pop of color. Which was unintentional, but I can't say that I hate it. As much as I love color, sometimes it's nice just to go with something that can be easily mixed and matched. Okay or maybe I was just having a case of the lazies. The outfit kind of went like this: do I want to bother with shaving my legs? Nope - okay, pants it is then. Top - I think the black and white stripe is clean...score! Cardigan - this one was at the top of the pile. Shoes - these were the ones sitting by the door - perfect. And there you have it - my no thinking about it outfit. :)

Unrelated to outfits or laziness - happy birthday to my dad! He pops on here every once and awhile, so dad if you're reading this, I hope you've having the best of days!

Today makes 35 weeks pregnant and time for another bump update! Baby is approximately the size of a honeydew melon, over 18 inches long and 5 1/4 pounds - in theory, but at the last ultrasound they said he's more like four weeks ahead in size, so who really know what to compare him to? :) I have my next doctor's appointment tomorrow, but everything's been coming along nicely. Today makes exact one month until we get to meet him - we have c-section scheduled for October 5 (due to him being frank breech and very large) - unless he decide to make an early appearance of course!

  1. What a perfect backdrop for photos of this outfit! I love all the neutrals too - and how the striped pattern and the textured cardigan add interest beyond just being black and white. Cute!

    1. Thanks! It's actually a wall under an overhang of an abandoned furniture store. Perfect for rainy days - and days when you don't feel like having people gawk while taking photos. :)

    1. Awww...thanks so much! I was pregnant with my first child during the winter/spring and it was so much easier to dress, summer has been challenging for sure!
