38 Weeks + Counting (See Jane Wear)

Gap tweed jacket, Club Monaco top, James Jeans maternity (c/o), Converse sneakers,
ChloĆ© bag (old but similar + similar), Saint Laurent sunglasses
I have so many emotions right now but am at a loss for words.  The past nine months have a been a total whirlwind; one minute I'm overcome with excitement to meet this little guy and the next I'm completely terrified that I'm becoming a parent.  I have a natural tendency to worry and obsess over any little thing so I have been doing that over the past few days and am starting to feel frazzled.  I'm sure it doesn't get much better once the baby is actually born.  

PS My posting may become intermittent in the upcoming days as baby's arrival draws near.  And also, thank you so much for all tips that you all leave me in the comments--they are SO helpful!

Citrus + Peach (See Jane Wear)

Zara coat (similar, worn here and here), F21 citron sweater (the pictures wash it out, but it's a yellow-citron...similar), James Jeans maternity (c/o), Madewell leopard loafers, RayBan mirrored sunglasses, Chanel bag

Wow, we are in the home stretch of this pregnancy.  I'm going to be honest: I cannot wait to wear my normal clothes again.  I'm at the point where I'm swollen and retaining water like crazy (such a nice visual for you all to start your Monday morning).  Of course, I'm excited for the end result--finally meeting this baby!  But, in the meantime, I'm getting pretty uncomfortable and having a hard time dressing myself (e.g. things aren't really fitting, total lack of inspiration, etc).  Any tips for these final days/weeks?

Linky Dink (See Jane Link)


This week has been a doozy.  Luckily, the internet provides endless distractions.  Here are a few of my favorite things on the interwebs this week:

1. As an iPhone user for the past 4+ years, I'm ashamed I didn't know ANY of these things.
2. Love her or hate her, Gwenyth Paltrow is often the center of much debate.  As a soon to be working mom, I do get a kick out of this letter addressing GOOP, though.
3. So, pineapples are big this season.  What about bananas?
4. The argument for more hugs (as if we needed one).
5. As someone who could always use help with interior decorating, I especially like the tip about using a touch of black to "finish" a room.
6. I'm craving anything cold or cool; these cupcakes might have to be made this weekend.
7. After I have this baby, I'm wearing a wide-leg jumpsuit--that's for certain.
8. I found my diaper bag.  Too bad it's sold out everywhere in the world.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
