Dressing The Baby Bump

So, I have a little story about maternity clothing...this pregnancy has by far been the hardest for me.  I have been feeling nauseous most of the time (and I am 22 weeks!) and the only way I feel good is if I keep eating ALL THE TIME.  It is super annoying because I still don't feel great that way and have gained more weight than with the last 2 pregnancies.  I can't complain too much because I am just really grateful to be pregnant and to have pretty easy pregnancies.  But, this is becoming a problem when I try to get dressed in the maternity clothing I have already had that is fitting me like I am 7 months pregnant. 

So, the other day I was trying to put a cute outfit together for a date with my husband and thought I had found a pretty cute and pretty flattering outfit.  Then, the Fed Ex guy surprised me with a package from Miccimo.  It was like Christmas- I went in my room and pulled out all of the goodies they sent and put everything on.  One after the other I was shocked at how much better their clothing fit and looked than the "cute" outfit I had just spent 15 minutes putting together.  I even kept the dress on that they had sent for an hour so that I could show my husband how cute it made my awkward body look. 

Miccimo KNOWS pregnant bodies.  They are SO good at dressing them- trust me.  So, I hate to even show you my awkward fashion blog pictures I attempted, because they really don't do the clothing justice.  I am still trying to get the posing thing down- you'd think I would be good at that since I'm a photographer, but I am just not good at posing myself.  These are three pieces they sent that worked well together. 

The blazer is so comfortable and works well with almost anything.  You can wear it open or close the clasp in the middle:

A skinny belt can make all the difference in shape- especially when you are in that 2nd trimester awkward stage and people aren't sure if you are pregnant or if you've just packed on the pounds :)

Allie & Baby Girl?

So, the top floor of our house has 3 bedrooms, and we are trying to figure out where we will put the baby.  There are 3 possible solutions:  Allie & baby girl together, Macsen & baby boy together, or Allie & Macsen together.  I have been looking at ideas of what I would do in each scenario, and today I want to share the ideas I have for Allie & baby girl in one room.  They would be in the bigger room (blue-gray walls, and I DO NOT want to change any paint!) Here are my ideas:

Purple accents and lots of white:
