Preggo Gets a Mini-Makeover

Oh, thank you Baby Jesus for maternity leggings.

True to the tradition..First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage.  I am 4 months pregnant with a little girl!  Having a fine time!  Especially now that I have been able to move from my “boy fit/lazy day/couch sitting jeans” that were getting too tight (egads) into my first pair of maternity leggings.

Someone tell me WHY we torture our non-pregnant bodies with non-maternity leggings (or any non-maternity pants, really..Yes, I said that and went there).  They changed my life.  And, I can’t say that too many times.  It feels great to let it all hang out, while I am actually letting it all hang in.  Trans..for..ma..tive.  I no longer feel I could snap my husbands head off at the neck simply because my pants are too tight.

*Watch now, he’ll come home with 14 pairs of maternity leggings.

It’s all in the plan.  Mwahahaha.

So, clearly, because it’s me.. I have been slightly obsessed with what I am going to wear while I grow and contort and bust out (let’s be honest, there is lots of busting out).   And, I am happy to report that there are actual clothes for pregs that aren’t horrific and totally expensive.  Top Shop, H&M, Old Navy, ASOS…  And, also happy to report that not everything is empire waist.  YAY!

Check this out:

From ASOS

And this, also from ASOS:

These from H&M look cute too..  How cute and soft..

I went ahead and got this tee-shirt the other day.  Super soft and comfy and not offensively maternity frump:

H&M Grab 2 Tiff

 

 

Anyway, not SO SO bad.  Right?  Typically, I am not someone that likes to wear body-con stuff, but I am finding that now that I am pregnant, the tighter stuff looks better (gasp!).  I naively thought, a preggo could just wear larger sizes in some things and be ok and that is just not the case at all.  I mean, stuff hangs over your belly and you end up just looking sloppy, kinda like that fat guy at the County Fair eating a turkey leg.  You know the one, the guy that has no idea his stomach is hanging out the bottom of his shirt.

I am having so much fun with this and learning so much with every inch.  Can’t wait to apply all of this info to the work I do with my clients!  Life – ain’t it fun?!

Thanks for reading!

Message me for my addy.  Mmmkay?  Thanks.

Now, onto the weird.  This, this…this…this…yuck, yick, bah, siss, bam, rolf!

This makes my mouth feel funny and my throat itch.

Doesn’t it look like it would just expand in your throat and suffocate you like in some B horror film?

This is what I imagine – pretty, young twentish, protagonist in a sexy night shirt, small bows tying up her pretty blond, shiny perfectly placed pigtails – is standing at her kitchen island, suggestively putting her index finger in her mouth with a finger scoop full of pink foam. “Mmmmm”  Suddenly, her eyes widen, mouth agape, she coughs and clutches her throat as the foam grows and fills her mouth full of suffocating sugary puff.  She falls to the floor and stairs at the ceiling behind dead eyes.

Wow.  That was weird.

Have a good day!

Outfit Post – Preppy Military – What I wore out last night

……is that what this outfit is?  Preppy Military?   I don’t know, but at least I have reached outside my yooose (yooouse = usual : for all you non-slang, phonetic device dependent writers) of vintage/preppy/grandmother “go to” theme.

Outfit: Genetic Denim “Shane” bottoms purchased through their website, Gap button down, splater painted scarf from “Something Else” purchased at Intermix Online, Clarks Originals desert boots purchased at Whole Earth Provisions Austin, jacket is vintage and purchased at Protoype here in Austin

Perhaps it’s preppy military.  And, perhaps it is warm enough to wear to an outside party at a local restaurant/bar called Bangers.  And, comfortable enough for one to wear out on an evening when you aren’t sure how much walking one is going to do due to the fact that 9 million F1 racing fans are going to be in town eating, drinking, taking up parking spaces, and spending money in our fair city.  Read: AWESOME.  And, by the way Austin knows how to do big events and big festivals right.  ACL, SXSW, FFF…  If you are reading this and haven’t attended one of the above.  Get here in 2013!

 
So, the details – last night the hubs aka “darlin’ man” and I took the bus downtown to Rainey Street to support Love-A-Bull at a Pints for Pits party at the before mentioned Bangers.  Ate a veggie banger made with beets and goat cheese.  Mmmm.  And, then we took a pedi-cab over to the happenings downtown.  Where we saw some super cool cars, listened to some music – including Tejano – watched some fancy flashing lights from some temporary stages set up for race fans.

Fast, mini Mini cars on a very sophisticated track. Take that Circuit of the Americas!

VROOOOOM

We also tried to sneak past the long line at The W (pshaw!), got busted (embarASSing) doing so…yipes.  So we skulked down the street and took the party elsewhere (someplace without a line, suckas).  We got served along side some gorgeous French ladies a HUGE glass of wine at Malverde by a surly bartender.   (What was his deal?!  Gorgeous French ladies!  What could be so bad?!)  Music was buuumpin’ – DJ Chicken George kicks serious butt-ola..  We were surrounded by people having fun, dancing, and speaking with foreign accents.  It was fun!

Malverde

In other news…Hubs and I decided we want to move to Europe to live before we die or get too old to walk down ancient stairways.  So there.

XOXOX
