There is lots of good stuff about this style file. I have already talked about the super awesome Franklin Necklace in the last post, go check it out if you haven’t already. But now I want to share the pictures we took for the lookbook. I knew I wanted to wear something very special and this lovely dress had just arrived on the doorstep a few days before. The amazingly talent Megan Nielsen created this pregnancy dress just for me!! Isn’t it just the most adorable dress you have ever seen???!?!?! I opened the package when it arrived and jump around like a little girl for like half and hour.
It was so fun working with Megan, she sent me a bunch of sketches and we worked together to pick a design that I thought would work good for me. Then it was time to pick fabric!! There is lots to choose from out there. I wanted to go with a retro floral type fabric and fell in love when I found this pattern. The trim and button details I left up to Megan because I knew she would pick something beautiful. Boy was I right. How cute is the lace trim? The dress even has pockets!! I can’t say enough good stuff about this dress. Thank you so much Megan!! It was the perfect dress to pair with my Franklin “Be Thankful” necklace!!
Don’t mind my short art teacher nails in the picture above. haha. I can never keep long nails. They are always just dirty and disgusting with art supplies. I get mean looks when I go into the jewelry store we got my wedding ring at because when they clean it for me there is always clay and paint stuck in all the cervices. whoops! So I wanted to share one last picture with you. haha. When I was looking thru the photos, I was like “Oh my goodness, I have crazy spider veins.” So unattractive, but totally an unwanted side effect of pregnancy. Kev of course thought it was funny to crank up the contrast and saturation to make http://www.flickr.com/photos/jenloveskev/4772568730/ but the unedited version is just about as scary. Ha! I hear it goes away after the baby is born. Here’s hoping!
