Favorite Sweater Dress and Parent Talk.

Howdy All. How are you this Thursday? It doesn't feel like Thursday to me, more like Wednesday. It seems like this week went by so fast. That's a good thing for the most part, I think. As I am currently in my office blogging and eating dark chocolate (I have been craving chocolate lately), I can't help but think that just a few short weeks from now and I will be A MOM!! Wow that is so many things: Beautiful, Awesome, Fun, Happy, Fantastic, Overwhelming, Nervous, Expected + Unexpected, Unique (experience), New, Scary, etc, etc. I was asking my husband yesterday if he was ready to be a dad and his blunt, right-away response was "No!" It didn't shock me too much. In a way yes he is ready to be a father and he knows he is about to become one, real soon. But at the same time (and he is right) he said that one is never 100% ready to become a parent. That is exactly how I feel, too.

From some personal and parenting talk to outfit talk. =) It is the second time during this pregnancy I wear this dress. I love this dress in general, one of my favorite sweater dresses and I think it is perfect for Fall. Once again I paired a scarf with this just like last time but this time it is a completely different type of scarf in a silk blend (much lighter) & not in a rich, Autumn pattern, rather in big spots of Leopard. I decided to mix/match my Leaopard(s) by wearing Classic Leopard-Print Flats, too. These are currently my most favorite flats actually. They were originally priced for $88 at White House Black Market (last year) and would have been over $50 even with my employee discount (I worked part-time at WHBM at the time). But then I waited for them to go on sale which they did at $39.99 and 3 weeks after that they became 10 bucks cheaper. Low & behold there were only two pairs left at my store and one of them were my size. I love them: the classic print, the calf hair, the cap toe, the skinny bow. =)

P.S. Forgive the tiny little dark spots on my dress. It is just water, but I have been clumsy lately.

  1. I absolutely love the lace on the sleeves of your dress! What a fun detail and surprise :)

    Being a new parent is scary, but it really seems to come second nature once you have that little one in your arms. I don't think anyone is ready to be a parent, but in the end it's so worth it! Heather

    1. I love the lace on the sleeves here & I love this dress. Cannot wait to wear it again after pregnancy since I am bigger now and do not want to stretch it out.

      Even-though I am not a parent yet, I am VERY MUCH LOOKING FORWARD to it. And I agree it is already becoming second nature, though I am just expecting now. Plus I have had motherly instincts for a few years now. And no one is 100% prepared to be a parent, I think.

  2. Girl, look at you!!! Rocking that baby belly!! You look AWESOME!!!! Mother nature will take it's course and everything will come so naturally once your baby is here. Thanks for the SWEET comment today and for linking up! xoxo

    1. Thanks a lot, pretty, awesome Shanna. You are one of the cutest, prettiest, best-dressed moms I know so your compliments are truly appreciated. =)

  4. You look great with your belly, congratulations and I bet you are excited ! I am married with no children yet and the thought of being a mom scares me but I as you said it's normal to feel a bit's gonna be a wonderful experience, a bond that will last for a lifetime ! Enjoy your days waiting for the baby girl :)
