Getting Comfortable …
5 1/2 more weeks (I was 32 weeks here). I’m entering the “don’t even try to guess how much weight I’ve gained or figure out whether I’m wearing pajamas or real clothes” stage of the pregnancy. But my legs haven’t gained weight really, so I wear bigger baggier things on top for comfort and because I’m self conscious of all my moving parts, and then little tiny things on the bottom. Like so. It’s not my Red Carpet outfit but I like all the individual pieces a lot and it’s really comfortable.
Did you know that in the last month of pregnancy you aren’t supposed to sit with your legs crossed? You are supposed to just walk around, sit around and lay around with those suckers being in the, well, more “open” position. It just helps your pelvis loosen up, etc, but it’s actually harder to do than you’d think. Especially when you are a lady.
I got this top from TopShop but we couldn’t find it online so we sourced a similar one. And that necklace is porcelain and gold that I bought in Spain (it’s also like 5 pounds).
The cuts on my leg are from when I fell down the escalator at the Paris airport, carrying 3 bags (Brian had four bags and Charlie asleep on him and he was running in front of me) as we were trying to rush to our connecting flight. The fall was less dramatic than it sounds, but my legs were so bloody that they gave me the VIP service at the gate and let me sit with the fancy people, and let me on the plane first. Well, not FIRST, they let Snoop Dogg and his possy on first. But I know Snoop (remember?) and I was sitting within feet from him (not on the plane, he was in first – just in the airport) but he was looking pretty stoned and with headphones on and I was all bloody and no makeup and had a baby that was asleep on my chest who had leaked VERY dramatically all over his pants which then leaked all over my dress. It just wasn’t my “Hey Snoop, It’s Me!” moment.
Anyway, I’m fine. And my legs are practically healed now. So go on – get that look if you are into it.
1. Watch | 2. Top | 3. Cami | 4. Shorts (affordable and comfortable) | 5. Necklace | 6. Clogs (these are still expensive but they are down to $299 on Anthropologie’s site and I love them VERY much and insist on wearing them despite my “condition” – and no, these were not what I fell in, although I have 🙂
