So a bit late… sorry for the lack of postings for almost a whole week – baby's not even here and life has been getting hectic!

Thursday I took off because my mom had foot surgery and I was her chauffeur/nursemaid. She's totally fine – hobbling around with one of those boots but not feeling any pain which is excellent. That day I wore my black, pink and white print matte jersey dress from Motherhood Maternity.

Friday, I was all dressed and ready to go to work and my car wouldn't start. It's old, it gets crotchety in the rain, it happens. Luckily I had my work laptop with me so I worked from home. I did have on jeans and my light green cashmere tank, but quickly switched to some Old Navy cropped yoga pants and a tee shirt for the rest of the day! That night we had a quiet night at home with movies and homemade stir fry.

Saturday, we started by going to breakfast with my mom and her boyfriend to our favorite Greek diner. My husband went to man the yoga studio's information booth at the town Labor Day festival and I worked on cleaning the house. I have been a real slug lately and had a sudden burst of energy so got to hard core cleaning – we're talking curtains, dust ruffle, flipping the mattress (yes waited for hubby to do that), closet gutting, you name it. It felt really good and it was a gorgeous day so I had all the windows open.

Saturday night we had a few friends over, grilled out on the deck and then went to the town's Labor Day festival (carnival rides, live music, funnel cake… the usual). I wore a black jersey dress from Old Navy and flip flops.

Picture 124Sunday, we made breakfast and had it out on the deck, then went back tot he festival with a different set of friends. We then walked home, got changed and headed to a friend's pool party. Didn't get home until late and I was POOPED!

Monday, caught the town's Labor Day parade, then had a couple friends and family members over for grilling and hanging out. I ended up spending a large portion of the day napping because all that walking, sun and long days really took a toll on me! Pregnancy is finally catching up with me and I don't have the stamina I did five months ago! πŸ™‚

No full-length picture as that I was running super duper late this morning – my husband was taking me to the Metro and he had to also pick his dad up from the auto shop so I was in a dress-and-dash situation. Picture taken in my office around 4pm.

Knew I would be trekking all over DC today for work stuff so was sure to wear the most comfy shoes in my collection. I have been feeling pretty swollen and bloated lately, but glad to know that the boots still fit these calves! πŸ™‚

  1. I think it’s about the color. I have a black tee shirt dress that is never mistaken for a nightshirt, but then I ordered it in a heather indigo (darker blue but not navy) and my father in law came over and asked if I just woke up. πŸ™ From now I plan on sticking with darker colors (black, red, brown, dark navy and gray, brown) and no heathered colors.

    Thanks so much for adressing the muffin top jean question. Now my next question is: When you wear a cotton tee shirt dress what could I do so it doesn’t look like a nightgown?

    Stats are I went camping and wore a light blue cotton short sleeve tee shirt dress that came just above the knees and received the comment on a visitor that stopped by oh! I see your in your nightgown… is today lounge day?

    Yikes! I quickly said “No this is a dress!” This was not a v-neck neckline just a plain rounded one.

    Any advice?


  3. I am reading your post and thinking back to how it was being in later part of pregnancy- almost everything is tiring and alot of work sometimes- so I feel you!
    I love your scarfs and the boots!!! You look fab! Hang in there!
