This year was marked by several huge transitions–being pregnant, moving into a new house, and becoming a mom. Pregnancy and being a mom made quite an interesting year for dressing myself. With those two major transitions I felt like I was rebuilding my wardrobe, at least in part, TWICE this year.
Thank you for being along for the ride and for your encouragement and kind words as I worked through the awkwardness of dressing a growing bump and (still) figuring out a new wardrobe as a nursing mom!
Clearly I love blazers. And olive jeans. Don’t let anybody tell ya otherwise. 😉

- Finding maternity skinny jeans. The distressed skinny jeans above are low panel and only worked for me during early pregnancy. I managed through the pregnancy without a pair of skinny jeans that I loved, in large part thanks to it being summer. Even though I’m not currently pregnant, I’m still on the hunt so that I won’t have to go through the stress of finding good jeans during future pregnancies.
- Finding worthwhile maternity clothes, period! Ugh. It was kind of stressful in the midst of it all, but I came out of it being able to create a maternity capsule wardrobe. Hopefully that will make things way less stressful in the future.
- Not being able to use a large percentage of my closet for most of the year! And I’m even now still adjusting with breastfeeding in the mix.
- Not having my clothes in my closet. We moved into a new house when Addie was only 2 weeks old. It wasn’t until last week (4 months later!) that we set up the closet in our room. Our clothes were hung in other rooms in the house and partially still packed in boxes. Mad chaos!
