Modest Monday and a Link Up!

I always look like I swallowed a basketball when I’m pregnant! I seem to carry the same way whether it’s a boy or girl. I was asked the other day if I was sure I wasn’t carrying twins. Nope! I have to admit I’ve never been one to long for twins. My Grandma had twins so I knew there was a chance I could have twins, but God has never sent them along. The thought of that first year sounds so exhausting and I have the utmost respect for every twin mom out there!! You all are really supermoms!

Stitch Fix Maternity Shirt with Denim Skirt

I received a maternity Stitch Fix box in the mail a few days ago and this shirt was one of the items sent to me. I’m still trying to decide if I’m going to keep anything else, but I instantly fell in love with this shirt and knew it would be something I keep!

It really needs a Halftee under the shirt but mine were all dirty. I have to resist the urge to go grab a Halftee out of my business inventory whenever I really need one. The simple solution is just to make sure I get my laundry done!

I think you will hear this until August, but I’m so in love with being pregnant this time around. We had talked about not having more after Sophia but we will never do anything permanent to avoid pregnancy and know it sometimes just takes time to be ready again. The older I get the more I realize what a miracle these pregnancies are, and I’m immensely grateful to be going through this again. The baby kicks melt my heart, and even though pregnancy is a lot of work (don’t look at my ankles in these pictures!), it’s so worth it.

I absolutely love these navy leather earrings! They are from Nickel and Suede, and the quality is really good. I have two pairs from them and I can tell I’ll be wearing them often. I love the look of leather earrings, I picked the small size and it’s perfect for me.

Hues Of Blue Flexi Clip

It’s fun to combine Lilla Rose headbands with coordinating flexi clips. I’m using the Hues of Blue clip here to keep my braid up.

What I Wore

Shirt – Stitch Fix Box

Skirt – Junees brand (from my last pregnancy, no longer available)

Shoes – TOMS from Zulily (I love the deals you can get on shoes there!)

Headband and Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose

Earrings – Navy Baby Leather Earrings

Why I Love Pink Blush Maternity Dresses!

It can be incredibly difficult to find good maternity clothes!

I bought a brand new dress for this pregnancy, and now just a few months later it looks like I’ve worn it through several pregnancies, the fabric is so worn.

When I buy maternity dresses I want them to be pretty, comfortable, and something that will last for my next pregnancy if at all possible.

That’s why I love Pink Blush maternity dresses! The silky dresses I’ve worn from Pink Blush have been very good quality and held up through washes and wear. I can tell this new dress I just got from them will be the same way.

Pink Blush Maternity Floral Maxi Dress

This Ivory floral maxi dress has a little bit of stretch to it, and it’s easy to pull on over your head. There are no zippers to mess with in the back, which I’m grateful for. What pregnant woman wants to mess with trying to pull up a zipper in the back? That makes me laugh just thinking about trying!

The dress is fully lined (though the skirt lining does not come down all the way), and I love how you can’t see through the dress in the bodice. I even wore a black belly band under this dress and I was ok!

I loved wearing these champagne shimmer leather earrings from Nickel & Suede with this dress! They are the perfect size (I picked the size small from the website) and I can tell I’m going to be wearing these all summer long!

At six months along I’m so thrilled to be feeling the baby move often. Almost every night when I lay down in bed the baby starts moving all over, giving me kicks and letting me know it’s there. It’s such a special time of day, I really look forward to it! Sean has finally been able to feel the kicks (it’s taken longer because my placenta is in front of my tummy), and I can’t wait until the children feel it.

If you are looking for a maternity dress for this summer, I highly recommend this one! It will work after your pregnancy (if you are not breastfeeding), and the print is beautiful!

I’ll be wearing this dress to church a lot this summer, and for date nights as well! You could wear a pair of sandals or a pair of flats with this dress.

Pink Blush offers quite a few dresses that would work for breastfeeding as well as maternity and women’s, so take a look if you need a new dress!

The company has generously offered to giveaway a $75 gift certificate to their store, and this is open to USA and International! Read the fine print for the detail, but be sure and enter to win!

*Pink Blush and Nickel and Suede provided the dress and earrings free of charge, all thought are strictly my own and I was not paid to write this.

You can use a mini clip to pull back just a little bit of hair, and this is also good for very fine or baby hair.

Use an X-Small size to pull more hair back, or for a smaller size ponytail.

Hues of Blue x-small flexi clip for an easy hairstyle!

A small works for a ponytail or for a small updo.

A Medium is great for thick ponytails, or for updos.

Turquoise Tranquility Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose! Make a cute ponytail that will hold up all day long with a flexi clip!

I loved curling my hair and twisting it up using a heart flexi clip from Lilla Rose! It was a casual but pretty date night hairstyle.

A large can hold an updo.

And an X-Large can hold even more hair!

A Mega is good for super long or very thick hair!

With seven different sizes, there is a clip that will fit anyone! 

The first six people that are brand new to Lilla Rose that place an order of 3 items (anything on the website) and then email me get the free coupon for the free item!!

Here is a sizing chart! Gather your hair into a ponytail and feel how thick it is compared to the coin measurements below.

Need more sizing help? There is a sizing and styling video on the website!

Flexi Clips are great for putting your hair up during the summer heat (if it ever warms up here!), for keeping it out of the way of babies who love to grab your hair, for children doing sports and activities, and for busy mamas who want to look pretty without spending all day on their hair!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Who else is ready for spring to officially come? We had snow flurries and it’s in the 30’s on Sunday! I didn’t pull out very many long sleeve maternity shirts from my tub at all, thinking it would be warmer weather right now. If this keeps up I’m going to need to go dig some more out!

Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt from Deborah & Co.

We drove home all day Sunday from a homeschool convention we were at in Cincinnati, so this picture was taken at a rest stop. I don’t look happier because it was cold and drizzling outside!

Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt from Deborah &  Co.

The Rainbow Denim maternity skirt has been a staple in my closet for this pregnancy, as it has been the last few pregnancies! I’m so thankful to have a skirt that takes a lot of wear and tear without showing it!

I’m so thankful to have only gained 6 pounds so far this pregnancy. I’m trying hard not to gain my usual 32 pounds this time around, but we will see how it goes as I get closer to the end. I’m getting close to 6 months, which is exciting! The pregnancy really is going by quickly right now!

Today is the very last day that you can grab the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle, you don’t want to miss it!! The support, encouragement, knowledge, and new resources you will glean are definitely worth the $29.97 you pay. So far a HUGE favorite resource I discovered is the Finding Time: Home and Children video course that is normally $97 to purchase! I was definitely convicted and challenged from going through that course.

Grab your Homemaking Bundle now before you forget and the day ends!

What I Wore

Skirt – Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt from Deborah & Co.

Shirt – Maternity top from ThredUP

Shoes – Blue TOMS from Zulily

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose
