I am totally crazy about these new shoes from Blowfish and I can't wait for the snow to get the heck out of town so that I can wear them outside instead of just around my living room. They are super comfy and such a great colour that I know they will go with just about everything.

When I got pregnant I had the idea that I would not buy any maternity clothes because I have so many things that would work well and get me through. While I still think that a lot of my clothes will work well (see, this skirt totally works) I am really happy that I picked up two pairs of jeans. The weather has been so yucky that I have been wearing jeans a lot more than normal and having that stretchy fabric to pull up over my expanding stomach is so comfortable. Not to mention it adds an extra layer for cold days! I don't really know why I'm mentioning this in a post where I am clearly not wearing these jeans that I love so much. It just popped into my head.

Have a good Thursday!


PS. The winners of the Hungry Designs giveaway are...Blue Eyed Night Owl, Ms. Megan & Anna.


  1. Your hair is lovely on these pictures. I absolutely adore this color.

  2. Your entire outfit is gorgeous.

    I'm in love with your record player!

    And wishing for warmer weather for you : )

  3. Dude, you have such nice lighting in your living room!!

  4. Love the colors of this outfit! And I'm digging your new hair a LOT. Simply adorable!

  5. I guess every pregnant body's different, but it felt like EVERYONE I knew told me that they could wear mostly non-maternity clothes for their entire pregnancy.

    Let me be the first to warn you that it might not be a reasonable plan.

    You look adorable here, and your skirt still fits you now, but your bump is so tiny still!

    By week 22, only one or two regular sized pieces still fit me, and it's very questionable as to whether or not they look any good! As my bump (and breasts!) grew, my proportions changed, and what looked good on me changed.

    At week 18 I could wear a normal length blazer or cardigan, but now they stick out like wings from the sides of my bump and make me look comically wide--like an oompa loompa.

    I was so much happier once I committed to maternity (as you found with your jeans!)

    It's EXTREMELY difficult to find well-made, quirky maternity clothes, but may I suggest ASOS?

    This post was long and rambling. I'm sorry I'm not more coherent today. Baby brain, perhaps.

    Anyway, your hair looks fantastic.

  6. You look so pretty Elycia!! I love this outfit and this skirt looks amazing - I love the way you pair colors + patterns together!!

  13. When I was pregnant I didn't really buy many maternity clothes either, just a couple of pairs of pants. I mostly bought dresses and tops that weren't maternity in a bigger size than I would usually wear. You look fantastic!
