Aqua Colored Skinny Jeans, Purple Tank and a "Little" Secret

AQUA JEGGINGS - Flying Monkey (via Anonymous Venice)
GRAY CARDIGAN, PURPLE TANK - Target
COLORFUL RING NECKLACE - Jaclyn1423
MAKE-UP BAG/CLUTCH - Giveaway, Her Late Night Cravings
LAVENDAR MARY JANE PUMPS - Prada (via DSW)


"Mommy, where do babies come from?"  Princess Sparkles asked me this in the car the other day.  I've been dreading this question for a while now and debated whether to give a more "fluffy" answer.  I started out explaining that mommy and daddy loved each other and so they made a baby.  But she kept wanting more details so I finally gave her a simplified biology lesson.  I explained mommy had eggs, like a chicken or a fish, and needed daddy to fertilize them.  I prayed to God she wouldn't ask me details on the "fertilization" process.  Luckily I think I had talked so much that I bored her so she didn't ask for any more details.  Phew!

"Inspiration" for my outfit
Everybody, Everywear is doing "colored pants" so I wore my aqua jeggings, and copying the color combo on a make-up bag I won from Her Late Night Cravings, I chose a purple tank, gray cardigan and lavender pumps I bought just after I got my first real job.  They're Prada and I got them from DSW.  I remember being so excited to buy them.  They were only $100 then but they seemed so expensive at the time.

As you can see, I'm finally revealing my little secret.  Actually, it's not all that little.  So the reason Princess Sparkles and Pigtails have been wondering about babies and pretending they're pregnant (stuffing their animals inside their shirts) is because their mommy is carrying #3!!!  I've been meaning to share with you all for a while now (because it was getting mighty hard NOT to wear maternity clothes and also not reveal the belly) but I just didn't know how to do it.  So this isn't all that creative but at least I can finally tell you all... I'm pregnant...AGAIN!

Anyway, I'm excited to participate in Everybody, Everywear.  But I'm even more excited that I could still fit in my skinny little jeggings!  Even though my body will be changing a lot during these next few months, I hope I can still participate in challenges like this and also keep stylish (because I know how much I'll feel like throwing on sweats and a t-shirt sans bra!).  This is an exciting new experience for our family and I'm so glad I can finally share it with you all!

Ok I don't know if I am more excited about the pretty teal pants or the bebe . . . Ok the bebe wins! When are you due? Do you know what you are having/are you going to find out? After having my two boys I thought I was destined for a house of testosterone. I was so stoked when my little girl came round. You look absolutely fabulous!

D said...

Whaat!!! Your photos have made you
look amazingly skinny and that's a
pretty BIG baby bump. Love the idea
of taking inspiration from a bag--
will consider it in the future.
About the where do babies come from
--my eldest was a little more
persistent about how the sperm got
to the eggs. The second didn't ask
--must have asked her sister, and
who knows what she told her...

knockedupfabulous said...

Ha! My daughter asked me the same question when I was preg. I just told her that daddy put the baby in my belly...luckily that was all the response she needed!

daisymay aka Chantele said...

Congrats! And well handled! lol. Not having any kids I'm not sure how I would have handled that question but I think you did well! You look beautiful by the way! Great colour on the trousers!

Lei said...

Yay congrats!! So happy for you guys!! And I love the inspiration for your outfit. :)

It's funny when kids ask about where babies come from. My nephew once asked his grandma (my mom!) if babies come from food. He was looking at his mommy's growing belly. Hihi.

Dawn said...

Claire you are amazing and I am happy for you darling. What a great mom you are already and I admire you for having a 3rd. Sweet. Adorable bump. Love the pants. What a great color for Fall. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

Congrats lady!! Oh, I know your super excited! I can't wait to see all the chic outfits your going to wear during your pregnancy. Yay!!


Congrats to you and your family!!

You look wonderful in your teal skinny jeans and prada shoes! Your a stylish momma already!!

Megan Mae said...

Such fabulous shoes and those seafoam jeans are lovely! Also congratulations! Double congrats for being up front with your little ones about where babies come from. They don't need all the information, but giving them real info early on is better in my opinion.

Mommyblogger said...

Oh Congrats on Number 3! We have been "considering" another child. I just don't know if I'm ready or not.

I remember when I was pregnant with Bub. When my daughter found out the whole baby process she was completely grossed out (remember, she was 12 so no fluffing). It was too funny. It bothered her more when she figured out where babies came from. I remember her looking at me & saying "that is where I came from". It was priceless!!!

I love your aqua jeans. Your gonna be such a cute little preggo gal. I can't wait to follow this journey with you!!!!

Daisy said...

Congratulations on your little secret! And I can't wait to see more pictures of your growing secret.
You look great in your aqua pants.
