I just have to give some background on this here supremely comfy summer look. So dressing my bump isn't as easy as it seems. This was my third try on Saturday morning. Seriously, I've never been the kind of girl who stands there and stares at her closet and tries on multiple ensembles before racing out the door. I always just throw it together and go. It's a blessing for sure, but when it comes to dressing, I've always had a really easy time making decisions and not fretting at all.
Well, well...enter a baby bump and I'm like a 15 year old girl, sitting on the floor of her closet, screaming at her Mom that she has noooo clothes! Seriously, I think I tried on two different looks prior to this concoction, both of which Hubby gave the thumbs up on. But you know what, I just didn't feel pretty. So back to the drawing board for a look that can weather the Austin heat and also flatter my figure. Voila, a maxi skirt and crochet tank always does the trick in my book!

And for those of you that love a good bump watch pic, Baby Boy Cullen is growing for sure! And how about that picture perfect lil' pup! Holy bonkers, she cracks me up! Granted, it was her Daddy taking the picture and she always has all eyes on him so it's no wonder she was staring right at the camera, he was behind the lens! I'm feeling really awesome lately and enjoying the joys of my second trimester and all the energy that comes with it.
This pic was snapped on Saturday before I headed out on a fun girlie/preggers day date with my friend Mel from I Heart Photography. We ate a massive breakfast, shopped South Congress in Austin and then hit up Barton Creek Mall too! Our lil' pregger legs were super tired after all that walking. I'm 21 1/2 weeks along in this pic, for those of you that like to keep track of that stuff. And for my non, in the know, readers...that's almost 5 1/2 months of a 10 month pregnancy! Thanks for your support as we embark on such a huge adventure and hope this inspires my bump-tastic readers to dress their bump proudly too!
