. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Third

April 22, 2013

Third

 
dress: H&M    tee: old navy    flats: jcpenney

I feel a little like a pioneer in this dress because of it's length.  I don't know if I've ever had the problem of a maxi dress being too short but I'm pretty sure it shrunk and then add my belly to shorten it.  But it's so comfortable I am still going to wear it.

I am so happy to be in the third trimester.  It felt like it was beyond slow at the beginning and now time seems to be moving quickly.  There is this huge relief that I feel now that we've reached this point.  Although I have no plans on early labor or any reason to think something will happen, it's comforting to know that if our baby girl decided to come anytime soon, she'd be able to make it.  


Hope you have a great start to the week!

yay for being in your third trimester!! i wore a dress very similar to this today and it too was from h&m. haha i wore mine with a cardigan, but i must say at this point in the pregnancy, maxi dresses and skirts are definitely the way to go!!

So my brain must have been put on pause because why did I think all day this week would be week 27?? Holy moly we are in the third trimester!!!!!! BTW I saw a photographer you liked on FB that I am thinking of using, wondering if it is the one you went with?? I had some favorites closer to us but they cost a fortune!!

Oh, you look soooo good!! Love the tied up top, so cute! This is definitely the point where time starts to fly and then it seems to slow down again in those final days before she arrives. It's so fun to see all that you're creating in her room, she's gonna love each dot, elephant and chevron stripe!!

I have a problem with maxi skirts pulling up in the back - I've got a little bit of a butt on me. I always have to tug it down back there so it will match the length in the front, ha. They sure are the comfiest, though. And yay for the third trimester!! Your little girl is going to be the cutest.

Simply LKJ said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Amanda said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates
