Style File 08.25.10


To perfectly honest I am in a grumpy mood today. I don’t know what it is but I just can’t shake it. I miss my sisters, I miss my mom, I miss my friend Laura, I want this baby to come! I am totally having a self pity party here at our computer desk. I decided that I would take myself out this afternoon and go get my hair cut, it’s been forever and it always makes a girl feel good. I just got my ends and layers trimmed up but I totally went for the full shampoo and conditioner before and not just a wet down. When else does someone scrub your head like that? It feels so good. hehe. It’s definitely good to have freshly cut hair. I am now planning on getting a mani/pedi on Friday with some girlfriends. Nothing like a little self pampering before you head into labor, right?

Although, I feel like this is the same outfit as yesterday. Skirt. Tank. Shirt/Cardigan. I like the laid back feel to this one. I feel like I need to be in maine in this outfit. We may be going this weekend. Well we were invited to a birthday bash but we haven’t decided yet if we should go or not. I want to go so I can do something to distract me from wanting this baby to come and see friends, but is it cutting it too close?? Well have to see.

Oh My! Look how monstrous my belly looks!

  1. Your belly looks beautiful Jen! Hang in there…the baby will be here before you know it! I think you should take yourself to a movie this week too, or read a book- something you may not be able to do for awhile once baby is here! Stay strong, stay positive- I just love your blog & on days like today, I hope that makes you happy!

  2. Your belly looks ADORABLE!
    I was having a grumpy morning too, until I got the sweetest comment on my blog that just made me smile and turned my day around. Maybe this comment will help improve your mood!

    Try to remember everything amazing in your life…all the great things you have earned just from this blog alone!!! And don’t forget your talents as an artist and crafter!!! When the baby comes you won’t be able to stop smiling.

  3. I love those tanks! I wear one almost everyday and have tons of colors…grey and white are my favorite 🙂

  4. you look great! seriously, i’m so impressed with your pregnant fashion blogging and how creative you have been.
    those last couple weeks can be really hard. i second kate’s recommendation, go to a movie! it’s one of those things that doesn’t happen often when you have a little one. and I would say, if you’re still feeling good, you should go to your friend’s party! there’s nothing worse than sitting at home being bored and feeling sorry for your preggo self if you are still able to be out and about.

  5. Aw, you look so great! I love that feeling of having someone else wash my hair and massage my head a little bit. I hope you enjoy your pampering before your little one comes home to you.

    ps: Did you get that skirt recently? I’m having a hard time finding a not tight, not too short, stretchy skirt that’ll fit my belly. The one you have is exactly what I’ve been looking for!

  6. this is totally a Maine outfit, hint hint! Hope you’re feeling better, we’re getting bummer weather here. A mani Pedi sounds lovely!

  7. Your almost-done belly is too cute!

  8. Miss you too. Sorry I missed your call today i couldnt hear the phone ringing where I was. Your hair looks good and a mani – pedi is a great idea. Maine could be a good distraction but how far away is it? Just keep getting out of the car ever hour to stretch out and walk around. Either way you and Kev should do something special this weekend. It would be a good distraction.

  9. Your belly is huge – but in a really awesome way! You look wonderful Jen! Meanwhile, yes get the mani pedi!! I’ve gotten one just before both babies, and it’ll make you feel soooo good! Plus you totally deserve it for working so hard!
    And don’t worry, feeling grouchy is totally normal when you get to the end – it’s just that baby taking up so much room, the lack of sleep the strain on your body and the hormones. You’re doing awesome hun! xoxo

  10. You look great and are so so close. So excited for you guys:) I am getting a bit anxious, definitely been nesting for awhile now. You’ll do great; good luck and talk to you soon!

  11. you look great! so cute…in fact i want to wear a similar outfit tomorrow but not sure it will be as cute without a cute belly….can’t wait for you to have your baby girl…how fun will dressing up with the little on be? geesh…i can barely stand the cuteness…btw…simple, cute and comfy is just as inpiring as the more creative stuff..we all need to feel good and comfy sometimes.

  12. 38 weeks and still stylish…love the necklace. Definitely pamper yourself before the baby comes, you deserve it.

  13. As always you look so adorable 😀

  14. I don’t know, Jen, although I don’t know what you must be feeling, you look GOOD. Like really adorable and super cute good. Hang in there girl!

  15. Come on, Jen! Enjoy every day quietly before the baby comes, everything will go well!

  16. The last few weeks are the hardest…you want to rest but you are anxious to meet your little one….hang in there. Movie theaters are a great cure for that!! I probably saw at least 5 movies my last week….something you can only do during your first pregnancy..:-) You look fantastic….cannot wait to see pics of your little one…:-)

  17. OH!! ….and a pedicure is exactly what put me into labor with my first….lots of pressure points on the feet ..:-)

  18. oh my goodness! look at how perfect that baby belly is!

    i was in a huge funk yesterday – maybe all that rain we were getting made the bad thoughts/feelings come in?!

    shes almost here! i had a dream last night we were talking on the phone and you thought you were going into labor so i had to call kev at work for you to tell him to leave and meet you at the hospital! haha – too funny! maybe we should have a phone date and we can make my dream come true?!?! XOX

  19. Ahhhh!!! I love this….I agree it is definitely laid back and sometimes ya have to dress according to a grumpy mood 😛 I love the setting…very cute with the tree and such!

  20. so cute 🙂 are those prescription glasses? i’m loving them!

  21. I hope you’re feeling better toaday. You’re all belly lady! You look like you havent gained any weight except a growing baby in your tummy. You look beautiful 🙂

  22. jen, you have the most perfect baby bump! and you are carrying it so well. it doesn’t look like you’ve gained any weight outside of your bump!

  23. cute photos… i love that denim shirt!

  24. Stopping by from Kendi Everyday.
