bright leaves + a bump

You guys know I couldn’t escape to my beautiful home state without sneaking in a mini photo shoot to show off my bump style, right? We drove by this gorgeous wall of turning leaves and I couldn’t resist hopping out of the car and posing. 🙂

I swear, the babe has grown SO much in the last couple of weeks. I’m feeling her move a lot now, and I can’t think of a better feeling in the whole entire world.  My bump style this pregnancy has been all about layering – my go-to maternity tees with a non-maternity little something over them. So easy and comfortable.

Military is like leopard – it’s a non-neutral neutral (I just made up that phrase, but it makes sense….right?). I have been LIVING in this jacket since I scooped it up. It covers the tush (which is a necessity these days) and pairs perfectly with just about anything.

I’ve linked my favorite military/utility/field jackets in the widget below. (And you don’t have to spend a fortune. Check out this one that’s only $40! So CUTE.)

And you guys! Nothing says a weekend away from the kids like a SMALL crossbody handbag, amiright??! This is the only bag I brought on the trip, and it was exhilarating. It was like I was free. Like I could fly. It was simply amazing…

But then I had to get home to my girl because I missed her with all of my being.

Oh, motherhood. You sure are funny.

    So cute! I totally agree with the layering of maternity tanks/tees with non-maternity pieces over them. I did that all the time with my first one when I was pregnant over fall & winter. It was cheaper than buying lots of maternity clothes, and I still got to wear my cute non-maternity cardigans and jackets!
