Blazer for All

Dear Diary,
  I'm frumpy 90% of the time during my pregnancy like most women (no judgment!)  But occasionally when you want to pretend you still have everything together (while standing in swollen feet), I have a solution for you: long blazers.  The wonderful thing about blazer is that it gives structure to your frame.  So you can bum in your leggings, oversized sweaters, and maxi dresses all you want underneath; the blazer will give you an illusion of a narrower frame while looking more trendy, energetic, and pulled together.   After all, we women can do it all even when we are carrying a bowling ball at all time, so we might as well look the part!

A New Year to Blossom

Dear Diary,
  It's a New Year and the briskness in air feels just right for a new beginning.  However, before the Bay Area dropped to near freezing temperature, I was able to wear a floral number for a little while.  This high waist dress is actually not a maternity dress but was surprising accommodating for the first two trimesters.  The long pleats right below the waist line hid my bump earlier in the pregnancy (up to 4 months) then allowed me to grow into it over time.  I'm thankful for my impulse purchases that allowed me to have one more thing to wear other than my leggings and oversized tee.
