No Maternity Clothes

StyleLust Pages: No Maternity Clothes

So I’ve been challenging myself to see how long I can go without buying maternity clothes. I’m doing good so far! I mean I did have to give up my jeans or any fitted pants that aren’t sweatpants or stretchpants, but I’m a-ok with that. A lot of my dresses are shift styles or maxis, so I have room to grow in them. It’s kind of crazy seeing your go-to pieces get more and more snug!

This skirt, for example, works well too. I’d usually wear it above my waist which I can still do since the band is above my bump. It just gives off a different look lol. Learning as I go!

Did any of you go without buying maternity clothes? How did you make it work for you?

What I Wore: Old Navy men’s shirt, Boohoo skirt (HERE), Love,Cortnie KeKe Mongolian Fur & Leather Bucket Bag (1 left & on sale HERE), Charles Jourdan heels, vintage necklace from Atlantis Dry Goods

Holiday Metallics

StyleLust Pages: Holiday Metallics

I’m 21 weeks today! I didn’t even realize how big my bump has gotten until I saw these pics. Whoa, baby! I wear this skirt a couple of times of year and during the holidays is always necessary. I was never really into metallics and I almost passed up this skirt when I saw it years ago, but I took a chance on it. Of course, I love it (obviously!). This is definitely a first though wearing it while pregnant. Dressing my growing belly has been quite interesting!

What I Wore: Boohoo top (HERE), BCBG Max Azria skirt (HERE), Love,Cortnie Clutch (HERE), Sam Edelman sandals (old)

It’s Electric

From On December 8, 2016

StyleLust Pages: It's Electric

The bump is growing, y’all! It’s getting harder to bend over without struggling for air! And to be honest, these pants weren’t even zipped up all the way in the back lol. Hence, the tee & bomber to use as a cover-up. Happily accepting the little changes that are taking place as I grow a mini human and taking advantage of being able to wear my shoes while I can. Just mixing prints with this electric blue beauty.

What I Wore: Forever 21 bomber (similar HERE or HERE), J.Crew tee (HERE) & pants (HERE), Love Cortnie ‘Suede Color Me Roll Down’ Clutch in electric blue (HERE), Kurt Geiger heels

StyleLust Pages: Boots As Pants

Visiting home back in Maryland last week for the Thanksgiving holiday with hubs and had an awesome time with family as usual. Finally got a chance to take pictures with my sister. This is also her sweater and pair of boots lol. Couldn’t pass up the opportunity to wear a chunky sweater! It’s still a bit too warm for that here in Miami.

P.S. Thanks so much to everyone who left such sweet comments on my last post, Facebook & Instagram in regards to my baby news!

What I Wore: H&M sweater (alternate HERE), Zara boots (similar HERE, HERE or HERE), Love,Cortnie Leopard Mini Bucket Bag

Yup! I’m Pregnant!

From On November 16, 2016

StyleLust Pages: Yup! I'm Pregnant!

I’m finally letting the cat, well the bump, out of the bag! This chickie is pregnant and I can’t quite hide it anymore lol. Hubs and I are extremely excited and many of you have even been suspecting it on social media. Several of you mentioned that I was glowing and it blew my mind. How did y’all know?!

But it all started back in August when we found out. We were taking blog pics one evening and I had this fitted blue dress on. Except I was SUPER bloated. Like…ridiculously bloated. I was looking back at the pictures in shock. I knew I was expecting my period which was then a couple of days late, but this was a whole other level of bloated. I said to my husband (he takes my pics), “I’m taking a [pregnancy] test in the morning.” I thought that maybe the prenatal vitamins I started taking earlier that month maybe caused it to be a little off. Really not thinking anything of it.

So he got up for work the next morning and I said I’d take one before he left. Still thinking nothing of it, I took the test. It was around 5am when we found out that we were expecting. Say what?! I couldn’t even cry I was so surprised. And do you think I was able to go back to bed? Nope. I was UP. My sister was the first person to find out. I sent her a photo of the positive test while we were talking on the phone. I had to wait until I could facetime my parents, but they found out hours later. I had to witness their reactions lol.

It was awesome though. And we’re grateful. We’re just over 4 months in and can’t wait to find out the sex. Trying to be patient about it, but we’re dying to know! Fingers crossed that it works out and we find out this week!

Stay tuned! I’ll be doing a post on the journey so far soon. Got a question? Just ask below in the comments!

What I Wore: Zara jumpsuit (old), Love,Cortnie ‘Wild Thing’ Roll Down Clutch (HERE)
