This little baby is giving me serious RLS, combined with a toddler that is giving us a wonderful case of sleep deprivation syndrome (just picked up ‘The Happy Sleeper‘ so hopefully that can alleviate the situation). But that doesn’t mean I can’t pull together an outfit for the blog (and life). A girl can’t just lay around naked wondering how much longer a vacation can ruin a child’s good sleeping habits, now can she? One must get clothed!!!
So this is a very affordable denim dress, a less affordable hat and some cute little booties that feel slightly more modern (and taller) than my usual fall boots.
I tried a belt with this dress (it comes with a tie, actually) but often belts/ties look best in photos but not in real life because they can bunch, so I figured I’d wear it here how I would every day – beltless. I’m pregnant enough that I don’t need to tell people visually (which is the main function of the belt) and I’d rather have nothing to constrict that baby in there right now. Man, I’m so much less comfortable with this pregnancy than with Charlie. She feels wildly lower, and like she wants to come out at any moment. I’m only 32 1/2 weeks along so that isn’t ideal. Hopefully she can hold on for 6 more weeks and then shoots out in an hour.
Meanwhile, grab the look if you are into it. I highly recommend all of those items for their sheer comfort but they are also all very versatile and stylish enough for work/play and going out. And napping. I could nap in an 80’s prom dress right now 🙂
Like my bench? It’s from here.
