So...here's my outfit of the day for the first time in a couple months, but mainly I wanted to share a new product with you that I think is pretty genius, since my fashion choices these days are much less about what looks good and much more about what I can squeeze into. Seriously, my maternity clothes are ALL almost too small, especially jeans/pants. Ouchy.
Also, nice fanny pack right? Maybe I will bring them back?? Jk...BUT I am trying this one out (gifted from my Dad at XMas) because this is my genius solution to needing a purse while carrying around a newborn. If I remember correctly, it was no walk in the park last time. I probably accidentally knocked the G baby in the face with my purse on a daily basis the first six months of his life, so here's to avoiding any purse-related accidents while having a convenient front pocket for my keys and cash. Grocery store with two kids, here I come!!
Now for my new discovery-Goody Double Wear Textured Elastics.
You may or may not have heard of these before, but I just discovered them. Basically, they are hair elastics that double as bracelets. I am always embarrassingly pulling a neon-colored scrunchie off my arm once I am out in public, forgetting that I have left it there, just in case. I struggle between leaving one on my arm because I KNOW I am going to need it, and leaving it at home because as someone who already looks young for their age, I don't need any help looking like a high-schooler. Especially while I'm visibly pregnant and toting around a three-year-old.
These babies are so stylish that you can hardly even tell which one below is my hair-elastic, and not just a natural part of my arm party!
They come in packs of three in both gold and silver tone, but I chose the gold. Love!!
You might notice I'm still ridiculously pregnant. 9 1/2 months to be exact. Just waiting at this point and praying that I avoid a C-section (I had some complications last time and the G baby came via emergency C-section after a placental abruption). If you're a person of faith and you're reading this, please pray for a safe and natural birth for us. I am trying to stay positive and every bit helps!
