Tuesday and Wednesday

Tuesday doesn't have pictures.  Emerson is going through what I think is a growth spurt and isn't sleeping well.  On top of that, I had to be at work at 7am.  The combo doesn't make for good photo ops…  I wore my blackberry dolman-sleeved tunic sweater from Ann Taylor Loft with dark Long & Lean jeans from Gap and my black city boots.  Very nondescript.

Wednesday was more purple and black…

Black pants from New York & Company, blackberry deep v-neck sweater from Philosophy (worn a lot right after E was born), black cami from Banana Republic, black city boots from David Tate.  Silver cuff, hoops and chain with wedding band (seriously, I am now only 9 pounds heavier than I was before I got pregnant and the wedding set STILL does not fit.  I need to get it resized).
This is a terrible face, but somehow it was the only one I captured that was not blurry as I dashed out the door:

That's the face I make when I see people wearing high-waisted tapered faded jeans with fanny packs.
Anyway, hair is BEGGING me to get it cut and colored, maybe that is why I was making such a face.  This photo was after straightening, smoothing, curling, polishing and primping.  Really sad.  It's just hard because this month I had to buy a plane ticket and a wedding gift, we had to get some equipment for my husband's business and some stuff for Emerson.  However I think I will have to at least get a cut before November.  I don't have enough time in the morning to deal with hair drama! 🙂

    Ooooo noooooo, don’t tell me that your shoe sizes change for good after pregnancy! That would just break me heart, LOL. Anyways, you look fantastic in this outfit, Allie! I never would have guessed you had kids.

    Allie my feet went up a whole size after I had my kids! Now seven years later I’m back to my original shoe size. I just don’t get it! BTW you look fabulous! Thanks for the tip on the David Tate boots. I got a pair off Zappos and for once my D width feet can fit into a pointy toe boot!

    Good point Cara… my feet are a half size larger than they were pre-PG, it would make sense that my hands would be as well! 🙂

    It probably does seem as though ia m obsessing about my weight. I really am not, it’s just crazy to see a body changing before your very eyes. What fits one week doesn’t the next. Also I went to the doctor on Wednesday and was weighed for the first time since August. 🙂

    My wedding band still didn’t fit even after I lost all my pregnancy weight and then some. I had to get it re-sized. It was like my fingers refused to go back to their pre-pregnancy size. I’ve heard it can happen with feet too, but I wasn’t aware it could happen with fingers until after my son was born!
