aaaaand the horozontal stripes strike out

Wednesday, October 5

Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Skirt: Target, Top: c/o WindsorStore, Blazer: Nordstrom, Necklace: c/o LeMode Accessories, Watch: Gift, Clutch: c/o Chicwish
You ever have one of those days, when you have an idea of what you look like in your mind, and you walk around, feeling good {kind of like your old self from 8 months ago} and then you take a picture and you're all, "Wait, I look like what?"

That just happened. Pregnancy is a strange phenomenon - in which you're fully aware that you have a belly, but it still kind of surprises you when you try and squeeze between spaces that you used to fit though and end up knocking someone upside the head. Or in this case, when you see pictures of yourself and are still kinda shocked at your own max holding capacity. Apparently, this little babe takes his chubs very seriously. {Proud mama right here.}

On days like this when I'm feeling particularly large - like the other night in the bathroom while brushing my teeth, I look in the mirror and say, "Hon. Just look at me! Look at this baby. I can't believe how big I'm getting." He'll put on his best Moto-Moto voice, come up behind me and be all,
"Goodness guurl. You HUGE. You chunk-ay..."

Always knows the right thing to say, that man.

You have got to be the most stylish and well put together soon-to-be mom I've ever seen.

Chapstick Fanatic said...

i think you look great. but i get it. i am not preggers and i had an outfit that i wore a lot last winter and i took a picture of it at the end of the winter and realized that the items don't look good together at all because they are not flattering. it happens...

Ali Rockwell said...

You look absolutely beautiful.

My bump is definitely starting to get on the large side, and I do still try to squeeze between things and realize that it's just not going to work out about halfway through.

You are seriously stunning, though. Not much longer until that little boy is here!

Alexandria said...

I think you still look amazing. And kudos to you for rocking heels at eight months!! That's a feat in and of itself.

lori said...

i cant believe those shoes, girl! i only hope i look as good as you when im preggers. you are so cute!

Cajsa said...

I am there as well. This is my third pregnancy and it never fails to surprise me when I knock someone around with my belly because I underestimate the size of my growing baby! I am not kidding you, my husband does the same Moto- Moto voice. "I like 'em round!" haha Too fun!

Rissy said...

aww I think your belly is great! there is a healthy boy growing in there... and somehow you still look absolutely adorable

Tammy @ Lemons, Avocados, & the Bay said...

KatyK said...

Ummm....regardless of how huge you're feeling can I just say... You are one stylish hot momma. Truly you look great. I remember those OMG I'm as big as a house moments. I would knock over things, run into racks at work. Lol and then after she was born and I was normal again I totally over compensated.

Bridget said...

i love the moto-moto reference. one of my favorite movie characters.
and you look dazzling.

Nicole said...

You're absolutely gorgeous and glowing. You look what I always hoped to look like when I was pregnant, unfortunately I DO NOT carry pregnancy as well as you do! You're lucky, girl!

Melissa Bond Davis said...

HAHAHA!!! Thats awesome because Jeremy does the MotoMoto voice when I'm feeling huge too!

Rolled Up Pretty said...

LOVE this outfit, SUPER cute! And your husband sounds like my husband... such charmers they are! Sometimes when I walk down the hall mine will sing, "See that jungle rumble." RUDE! Ha ha!

Kristal said...

I love how you mixed the patterns! You look great and although I can't imagine how you must feel, enjoy the experience of being pregnant and looking like the cute pregnant girl you are! I just bought a clutch like that over the weekend in black - thank goodness because I know I would have wanted yours! Have a wonderful day!

Mrs. C said...

Looking like one hot mama in stripes!!! Getting so close to the date!!! :) I've got a fun outfit filled with leopard and a kitty cat :)

omg i feel the SAME was as you!! a few days ago i felt like i wasn't that big at all.. but last night, hubby and i both were like WHOA WHAT!??! my belly is huuuuuge!!! and yes, it's interesting trying to fit into clothes these days!!

Sarah said...

I remember that! I did not miss being fat, but I do miss how my husband was. Very funny and super into the prego belly. He's obviously crazy lol. You looks super cute. Your face doesn't look pregnant at all. I got rounder in the face.

Maggie B. said...

i think you look amazing in this outfit. wish i could rock my clothes like that - even with a baby belly.

btw - the moto moto comment made me nearly wet my pants. that song is my husbands' ringtone for when he calls me. he like 'em chunky... :)

Miranda said...

Do you watch Rachel Zoe? you two are going through the same thing (although she was going through this months ago when she recorded this season)
Any how you look fabulous! Own the bump.

You really do look amazing! At 29 weeks the only clothes that fit me anymore are gaint sweaters and leggings, good thing it's fall right?

Bmorgan said...

I just started following your blog. And was wondering who takes all your pictures, they are awesome? Do you just take them yourself, with a timer? It is awesome that you look so cute and fashionable although pregnant. I never dress that cute, but certainly not when I was pregnant. I think I mostly wore my BYU-Idaho gym clothes until they didn't fit, then I just switched over to my husbands. :)

Liz said...

whatttt you look amazing. seriously. I'm not just saying that because I can type whatever I want behind my little laptop screen. You really look stunning! BUT I TOTALLY know how it feels to walk around feeling like you look like a million bucks only to look in the mirror and wonder what the heck you were thinking!

an said...

You look gorgeous!! I love your necklace. :)

LOL. MOTO-MOTO. Love that!!

I know how you feel, I look in the mirror and tell my husband, omgoodness babe, I'm getting so BIG!!!

But you are still rockin those stripes so well!!!

Hayley Laura said...

You look gorgeous as always, and I absolutely LOVE that skirt. I wish we had Target in Canada. You always get the cutest things from there :(

you is lookin' FINE! loving the top and that awesome skirt. also, how in the world are you wearing heels?!

Whitney & Devin said...

You are workin' the skirt girl! And that giant envelope bag= fabuous! And your belly is the cutest.

Mary said...

For the record, you look ah.maze.ing. I'm always jealous of pregnant ladies who have adorably round bellies, and who have enough energy to dress up on occasion. When I was as far along as you are now, my belly looked crazy weird -- like the shape of the top of a mushroom -- and not at all cute. I was also put on bedrest (= loungey clothes all day) and had fat face. You make pregnancy look good.

Also, your husband is hilarious.

Whitney and Camron Allen said...

Oh my gosh, k seriously cutest pregnant outfit ever! Love it so much. Way daring to wear this... when I was pregnant I just never felt cute but you hun look amazing!

You are 8 months preggos and still look amazing! That's pure talent. Even if you feel it, doesn't mean you look it, at least to the rest of us.

You honestly look great and I hope I look this pretty if I ever become pregnant!

You are teeny-weeny, and look gorgeous. You should've seen me just before my youngest (twins) were born at 38.5 weeks - huge! They were a very healthy 6 pounds and 6 pounds 3, so I was very proud. Best wishes with your wee bubba. xxx

Sure the prints are mixed together, but it still looks awesome!
And yep. You are pretty big. It'd be kind of funny when you give birth and the baby is tiny.

Ellie said...

I love that last picture especially. So pretty!

And is it bad that I knew exactly what you meant when you said "Moto-Moto" and didn't have to click on the link to figure it out? *laughs* That's hilarious.

The Webbs said...

Miss C said...

I love all of your comments, especially those on pregnancy. I think we're only a couple of days apart. I'm also pregnant and due November 22, so I'm loving the preggie updates. Funny coincidence, my husband also does the amazing Moto-Moto voice! I love it! Totally makes me cheer up! Oh, and the outfit is completely adorable!

You look goregeous!!! I just love how the two prints look together. God bless you and your family! (:

Ms. V said...

Can you help us fellow preggos out by letting us know what you've got going on under your shirt? In a less creepy way to ask that...are you using belly bands or anything to fit into non maternity clothes? I know I might be asking for a lil extra info, but you don't strike me as above an overshare or two :)

Ericka said...

You pull off the pregnant look beautifully, love. And it won't be too long until you get to feel like you again. At least he's not twins--when I was carrying mine, everyone (including clerks at Walmart) told me how huge I was. It's amazing how your body can bounce back. :)

just tututiny said...
