Black Maternity Dress

We have snow again! I know we are supposed to be content in all seasons, but I’m really looking forward to spring coming. I’m hoping it actually comes when the calendar says it is springtime. :)

In other exciting news, It’s MARCH!!!! Baby month is here!! I honestly felt like this month would never get here. So excited to have safely made it, baby is doing great and I think my iron levels have gone up because I don’t feel like I’m going to drop over from fatigue every second.

Black Maxi Maternity Dress

Baby is low, I’m having the usual braxton hick contractions that I can have for weeks and weeks. Other than that, I’m settling in to just nest this month and see what happens. I don’t feel like it will be anytime soon. I’m not even quite ready, I have a long to do list of projects I want to finish, but I know the baby won’t wait for that. ;)

Medium size flexi clip for a ponytail

I twisted the front of my hair and pulled it all back in a medium flexi clip. I was excited to see that beside the new clip Lilla Rose released for March, they also brought back some popular clips from last year, including the long awaited peacock clip!

March Flexi Clip Of the Month!

I love the new Opal Maltese clip! It’s a really elegant clip that will look great in so many different hair colors and hairstyles. It’s only available in March, while supplies last!

March Flexi Clip

Here are all the new clips that have just been brought back! The snowflake clip was extremely popular, as well as the peacock clip! You can find them at Lilla Rose here.

Modest Monday’s in March will vary, week by week. There might be a week or two where you just see the link up. I have a few blogging friends lined up at the end of March to share pictures.  As I get closer I just might not feel like taking pictures, and I’m not going to stress about it. :) The link up will always be up every Monday though, there just might not be pictures.

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Sunday was a super long day, we had a late meeting at church that my husband was in charge of. I wasn’t planning on attending, but ended up going and came home and went straight to bed. My husband always knows I’m extra tired if I’m ok with skipping Modest Monday posts. :)

Maternity Denim Skirt with Boots

I wore this outfit to a midwife apt. and love how comfortable it is! The skirt is a new maternity skirt I found, and the panel is a stretchy knit that goes over my whole tummy right now. I’m really particular about skirts still covering my knees when I sit down. This one does, and that is hard for me to find!

Did I mention we are now selling this classic Jane maternity skirt at Deborah & Co? I’m excited about it! I love wearing it with boots right now, but I know it will look cute with sandals, wedges, or Mary Jane type shoes in the spring and summer.

The weather has been cold here so I’ve been bundling up good! One day we were just staying home and I put some maternity jeans on instead of a skirt. Halfway through the day I went and changed back into my Rainbow denim maternity skirt, as it was so much more comfortable than jeans. I’ve found I can stay just as warm with leggings under a skirt. I normally wear these fleece lined leggings, but I’ve picked up some maternity leggings from ThredUP that I’ve been using. They are not as warm, but they work.

My hair has been pretty basic lately, just getting up and twisting my bangs back felt like a huge accomplishment on this day. :) My bangs are slowly growing and I’m happy I can do a few more styles pulling them back now.

What I Wore

Skirt – Classic Jane Maternity Skirt from Deborah & Co.

Long Sleeve Tee – Gap Brand from ThredUP

Tunic Shirt – Gap brand from ThredUP

Leggings – Maternity ones I found on ThredUP

Boots – Zulily

Earrings –  Silver hoops from Kohls

Bobby Pin –  Lilla Rose

(I used a bobby pin from Lilla Rose to hold my twisted bangs back. They are really secure and work well for slippery hair!)

Makeup – I had very little on this day, but what I did have came from L’BRI Pure and Natural

I just have to share about these new scarves we just got in at Deborah & Co. for spring and summer! 

Lace Scarves for spring and summer!

This Cotton Lace Scarf is available in three colors. The lace is just gorgeous, I can picture so many beautiful spring outfits with these scarves!

Cotton Lace Infinity Scarf

This Cotton Lace Infinity Scarf is available in four different colors. Both of these scarves are good for people that don’t like a huge bulky scarf.

I’d love to hear which one is your favorite!

You might want to visit our whole accessories page, we have a lot of new headbands added for spring and summer also!

Some of you probably have inches of snow outside and can’t believe I wore such a summery looking outfit! We had one short time of really nice weather here in the midwest, and I took advantage of it! I know it’s not the season for white skirts but I don’t strictly follow all the fashion rules. :)

I didn’t get an up close picture of my necklace, but it is a locket from Origami Owl. I made a goal of reaching Director as a Lilla Rose consultant in November and my sweet upline sent me a locket as a special gift for reaching it. It is the only Origami Owl necklace I own, and I really like the meaning behind it.

It can be hard to find clothes that fit the third trimester! This white maxi skirt was really comfortable to wear.

I’m slowly getting to the point where I have to work hard at putting together a comfortable outfit that looks ok. I don’t want to wear skin tight outfits that hug my tummy, but I don’t want to wear a sack either. Maxi skirts, my favorite denim maternity skirt and a few maxi dresses are my mainstay right now.

Shadows under eyes = third trimester. I think most pregnant mamas can understand that!

What I Wore

Skirt – Motherhood White Maxi skirt I found at ThredUP

Top – Motherhood Blouse, again from ThredUP

Shoes – ecoo brand I found on ThredUP (My whole wardrobe does not come from ThredUP, despite what it may appear. lol)

Flexi Clip – I teased my hair and pulled it back into a mini flexi clip.

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural – During these winter months, and pregnancy hormones my favorite skincare product has been the Rejuvenating Facial Peel. It’s actually kind of gross how much dry skin it will peel off my face! My makeup blends in better if I do the peel several times a week.

I’ve reached the point in my pregnancy where I wish I could just stay home and not go out feeling like I’m waddling like a penguin. :)  However, since I’m not due until around the end of March, that isn’t possible! I feel big and uncomfortable, but I’m still trying to put some outfits together that look halfway decent.
Blue Maxi Maternity Dress with a sweater and belt. Comfortable for third trimester!

I wasn’t sure how this outfit was going to turn out – I’m not very confident with mixing prints. My husband is good at colors (that’s the artist in him!) and he told me I could pull it off so I wore this to church.

This crochet sweater is so feminine and lovely!

I love this cardigan I found on ThredUP! New it was $100 (which I would never pay for a cardigan!) but it was on there for much less and I was able to use credit to get it. It’s not a maternity sweater, so I will be able to wear it all spring.

Maxi Dresses are really comfortable for the third trimester of pregnancy!

I think maternity skirts are more flattering, as dresses can make you look extra big. The nice thing about dresses is that they are super comfortable, and most mama’s just want to be comfortable!

I wore the matching Hues of Blue flexi clip and headband. So easy for a quick morning hairstyle!

Hues of Blue Flexi Clip!

What I Wore

Maternity Maxi – Motherhood Brand (found on ThredUP, new customers can get $10 of credit when you join through my link!)

Cardigan – Isaac Mizrahi Live brand (found on ThredUP)

Belt – We used to sell these on Deborah & Co. We have one left in stock. If there is enough interest I’ll get more for spring!

Shoes – Zulily- Even though it makes me nervous ordering shoes online I’ve been able to find several good pairs on Zulily.

Flexi Clip and Headband – Hues of Blue size medium flexi clip and headband.

Makeup – L’BRI pure and natural
