Let’s just get the hair out of the way before we begin, shall we? I think my stylist is very talented when it comes to cuts but styling? Not so much this time. This was supposed to be loose, beachy waves. In hindsight, I should’ve known to stop her when she pulled out the 1-inch curling iron but, well, I kept my mouth shut. I know, I know. The 90s called and they want my hair back.
Hair aside, I was feeling nautical (or maybe jailbird) this morning but somehow the traditional colors just didn’t appeal. I stopped by the new H&M in Austin a few weeks ago. They had oodles of slightly edgy nautical in stock. When I saw this top, I knew it would be the perfect second trimester tee. And it was perfect today. The top is slightly sheer so I opted to add a black Skinnytees tank top underneath. (Skinnytees…I adore these!) The jeans, also from H&M, are nice because they really don’t look maternity. The V-shaped waistband looks perfectly normal for the most part. And since I’m tired of black on black on black, I went with an old pair of Jessica Simpson wedges in blue. I had no idea how versatile royal could be when I bought them!
I’ll admit that I’m feeling a bit frumpy these days. I have a feeling that I’ll move away from loose, flowing tops soon. Once I have a credible baby bump (rather than this weird “did she gain 10 pounds or is that just an unflattering top?” look), I’ll move on to sleeker styles that are more me.
