What I Wore – She has her own style

WOW, another week has slipped away! Things have been pretty hectic at work, baseball is keeping us busy and now my husband and I are talking to builders and architects about expanding our house. Never a dull moment or less than full plate! Not to mention, I’m now visiting the doctor every two weeks and I’m not ready for that!! I still have so many projects to complete like sewing a baby quilt, making a baby mobile, designing a couple of DIY rugs, planning a couple of early birthday parties! Yikes!

This week I couldn’t resist featuring a unique outfit Lily wore to Jacob’s baseball game.

She proudly and confidently has her own style and I adore it! I feel that I can learn a lot from this 21 month old and these are the memories I want to treasure forever!! She is very vocal about what she wears. In the mornings, I will offer her several different weather appropriate options and she shakes her head and says “no, not that” and takes it from me and tosses it back into the drawer. We go through 3 or 4 outfits before she settles on something. Sometimes it matches, many times it doesn’t, a lot of times it’s based on a pair of shoes she wants to wear but always it’s something she feels comfortable in.

Lily had no less than 10 people approach her about her outfit or boots. They all adored it! I call these here Wonder Woman boots. The boots are a recent purchase from Old Navy. Those weeds you see at her feet she considers flowers and she can never walk by them without picking at least one.

What I Wore at 28/29 weeks pregnant

I like this outfit because it makes me look smaller than I am! It helps conceal the 30 plus pounds I’ve gained. The top is from Ann Taylor (non-maternity); jeans from A Pea in the Pod collection; shoes are Tahari from Off Broadway (thanks Alison for the inspiration); necklace is Anthropologie.

 Top and slacks are Motherhood maternity, cardigan is Merona from Target, necklace from yard sale.

It’s been cooler than expected this week and I don’t have warm maternity wear so I’m trying to make due. Long sleeve tshirt is Mossimo from Target (non-maternity), jacket is Banana Republic (non-maternity), slacks are Motherhood (how I wish I had better fitting slacks); shoes are Payless (feet has grown but I don’t want to spend a lot of money on new shoes – these are surprisingly comfy)

Of course I couldn’t resist throwing in pictures of my two favorite guys.

Daddy and daughter hanging out outside.

Pictures from Jacob’s first week of baseball. He is getting so big! Lily couldn’t wait to see Jacob after the game. She ran up and gave him a big hug. He crouched down to her level so she crouched, then he sat down so she sat down. She loves to copy him. In fact, the backwards cap is what he taught her.

You can almost always find Lily with a wrist full of bracelets or a sticker or two randomly placed on her.

As always, thanks for stopping by and spending a little bit of your day here!!

    Your choice of colors and mix and match are great. Not to worry how you look!! I love the photo of Lily and those “boots are made for walking”… now teach her to song that goes with them! She is quite the fashion model. Photos of your favorite people are adorable especially the one of Jacob and Lily bonding together. Good luck on your remodeling adventure.
