Our needs change month-to-month and even more so as the seasons change. Each season brings with it its own unique personality and I find I become obsessed with specific products, clothing items and forms of entertainment as the weather shifts.
These are my summer obsessions for 2016!

Jordan took these photos of me at the beginning of April. My how the bump has grown! As you might remember, I received a box from BUMPstyle (a maternity clothing subscription service) which included several different outfits (1,2,3). You can read more about how their subscription service works here!
This dress from Jules & Jim was my favorite from the bunch. The fabric was extremely soft (which now really matters as I continue to grow into my third trimester) and teal is one of my preferred colors. I don’t wear a lot of color regularly, but I have a hard time turning away from teal.

Jordan and I arrived home very late on Wednesday night. Our laundry pile might be out of control, but there is watermelon and La Croix in the fridge and lasagna defrosting for dinner. I made a very smart (unintentional) decision to wait a few days before going back to work. This isn’t always an option but is so helpful, especially in the third trimester. It gives me extra time for all our laundry. 😉
Yesterday, was my glucose test and here’s to hoping I passed! The drink was rather disgusting, especially since the last thing I wanted to consume after a long vacation was added sugar. Afterwards, I scheduled appointments for the remainder of this pregnancy. WHAT?! I can’t believe we are approaching the finish line.
Onto the links!

When I first opened my BUMPstyle Box, I unwrapped it with glee, ferociously unpacking each item. While looking over the clothes, I hesitantly held up this navy blue dress… skepticism all over my face. Jordan saw the dress and confidently stated it was his favorite item from the box.
I assumed (because of how small it looked) it would be far too tight and short for my liking. Well, clothes simply fit my pregnant body differently and some styles I would be uncomfortable wearing before are my preference now. More often than not, I am my own worst fashion critic and will write something off because I don’t think it’ll look good on my body. Add nearly 20 pounds of baby and I don’t know what to think! Thankfully, I have a husband who encourages me to step outside my proverbial fashion box.

I know some women who are less than thrilled with the prospect of having to purchase maternity clothes, but I have been looking forward to this day for years! When faced with the many facets of infertility, I acknowledged certain dreams of mine (such as wearing maternity clothes) might not become a reality for me. Now that I am here, I want to fully embrace this beautiful season of life which includes new pieces of clothing to celebrate my growing baby.
I first heard of PinkBlush Maternity through my friend Teresa and loved their sexy, playful, and affordable clothes. I am so excited I now have the opportunity to wear them!
