Okay, real talk. I just taught myself to french braid FOR THE FIRST time yesterday. lol. I have always been afraid to learn because I have failed so many times trying. Then yesterday I was just messing around watching hair youtube tutorials, and this one girl just explained it so clearly that it finally made sense! I clearly still have some work to do, (that piece of hair I left out has been bugging me so bad) but practice makes perfect!
I have always loooved off the shoulder dresses, so I added a couple ones that I think are so cute for summer. The one I am wearing is from Target. I couldn't find it online, but I am sure you will be able to find it at the store.
Little pregnancy update- I am 26 weeks along now. My tummy has been growing slowly but surely! I get to feel her move consistently throughout the day which is so cool. It is the weirdest feeling at first, but then it just becomes normal and so fun. I feel like I am connecting with her when she moves around inside and I tend to miss her when I haven't felt her move for a while. Sometimes when I am just sitting on the couch or laying down, and feel her move and actually see her push my stomach up, it brings tears to my eyes, because that is MY child in there! I actually am making a human! This pregnancy has honestly been pretty easy! The first 12 weeks were rough, but the day I hit 12 weeks I felt like my normal self again. I am tired here and there, and get heart burn. But other than that, I have nothing to complain about :) I love being pregnant.
Now that I am starting to show my pregnant belly more, I thought I would talk about some of my favorite things to wear during pregnancy, and how I stay fashionable when all I want to wear are sweats and hoodies!
One of my favorite go to outfits always include a dress of some sort. When you are pregnant you are constantly hot, and you don't want to feel restricted in tight jeans! I haven't officially started wearing maternity clothes yet, but I can definitely start to feel my pants getting tighter so I know its coming soon! The thing I love about wearing dresses is that I can wear most of my dresses that I already had prior to pregnancy, and I can layer then for fall! I love to pair dresses with cardigans, layer with long sleeves, or wear leggings underneath!
Speaking of leggings.. Those are my second favorite thing to wear! I love wearing leggings because they are stretchy, comfortable, and you can wear them with almost anything as long as you cover your bum! One of the biggest mistakes people make with leggings is that they don't wear the right top with them. This goes for pregnant women, non pregnant women, 40 yr olds, 15 yr olds, anyone! If your top doesn't cover your bum then leggings should not be your choice of bottoms.
Some of my favorite places to shop right now for clothes that I know will be comfortable and fashionable are Target, H&M, and Nordstrom Rack! I know I can always find a good cardigan, dress, long tunic, jacket, or leggings at any of these places, and now that it is turning into fall and winter shopping is more fun than ever!
