I’ve said before that if ever I was glad to have learned to remix or to have reworked my closet it would be during this pregnancy. One thing I learned was the beauty of a plain white tee.

But you bet I’ll need to gear up with a major self pep talk first. And ice cream, of course. Always ice cream.
