embracing spring at 17 weeks + my first pair of maternity jeans

tomorrow I’ll be sharing my week 13-16 recap (weeks 13, 14, 15, 16), but today I woke up and decided to actually put on an outfit that wouldn’t be classified as pajamas or athleisure, so I wanted to commemorate this victorious moment with a quick post!

also I’m 17 weeks today, and so amazed by how quickly this baby boy is growing! I’m loving this look to show off my bump.

also, I’m wearing my first pair of maternity jeans and they are actually on SALE right now! they’re a great starter maternity jean. I love the wash and they’re ankle length (at least on me they are), which makes them perfect for showing off those new spring sandals.

speaking of sandals, these are definitely become my go-to maternity sandals. it feels like you’re wearing sneakers, but you look much more chic!

happy Wednesday, everyone! see you tomorrow for the weekly recap and more bumpies!

    You are so cute pregnant! I’ve loved your updates so far. I had a September baby last year (she was supposed to be October, but she decided to make an early arrival). I struggled so much due to an enormous fibroid, so my pregnancy wasn’t cute. Ha ha! But, I LOVED living vicariously through your wonderful trips last year.

    The best thing about having a baby in September is that you don’t have to worry about putting on socks and shoes in the winter! (That belly can get in the way.) And you get to wear super cute dresses! And when he’s too young to actually get out and enjoy doing things, it will be cold anyway. I really think it’s the perfect time to have a baby for so many reasons!

      Emily, I am so glad you wrote this note! I just realized that I was too focused on ME during the pregnancy and not enough about the baby. I was thinking, "ugh, no traveling to the Caribbean or rosé this summer!" when in reality, this little gift I’m getting in September is what’s most important – and you’re right, I’ll get to cozy up with him during the colder months and then when he’s big enough to have a bit more fun, it’ll be spring and we can take him on fun trips! This made my day, thank you.

    Sandals are sooooooo expensive. Beyond the reach of many (if not most followers, and I have a ‘healthy income)…

      Not all my picks are for everyone! If you like the style, you can try to find similar looks elsewhere, that’s the whole point of an outfit post: for inspiration!
