GAP Maternity Wrap Dress and Jeffrey Campbell Wedge Booties

BLUE WRAP DRESS - GAP Maternity
WEDGE BOOTIES - Jeffrey Campbell
SNAKESKIN WRAP BRACELET - Made by my mom
FRINGE PURSE - Last Chance Boutique


WEEK 23!!!

"I'm not wearing any panties!"  Princess Sparkles announced to her entire gymnastics class.  I was horrified as I read that in a text from an embarrassed Camouflage.  Poor Camo, nothing like hearing your daughter announce something like that, especially when you innocently had no idea.  Earlier Sparkles had woken me from a nap with Pigtails, "Momma I peed in my pants."  Luckily it wasn't anything major (probably just a small leak while trying to get on the toilet) but I changed her pants anyway and was too lazy to throw on another pair of underwear.  I've learned my lesson...

Here is the maternity dress I wore to the 4th birthday party of Fancy's son, Elvis, on Saturday.  It's one of the dresses I bought on clearance this third time around.  The pattern sort of reminds me of an animal print.  I paired it with my favorite Jeffrey Campbell shoes.  I love these because they make me really tall and yet they're so comfortable.  I know I'm 23 weeks pregnant, but I just can't stop wearing big shoes!

Anyway, Princess Sparkles wanted to be part of my pictures (obviously), and in fact took over the entire photo shoot.  At least in these she has built in shorts with her denim skirt (she added the hat and did her own poses).  And thank goodness, she's wearing panties so there won't be any "oops" in these!

Haha, hilarious! Claire, this outfit is so chic! I love the deep V of the neckline on you and those wedges are perfect for fall (I've been on the hunt for a pair myself.) Your fringe back is also perfection, lovely outfit!

Princess Sparkles is a fashionista in the making! That is so cute :) Love the hat and scooter too! Miss M wore panties with her leotard to gymnastics last week and her panties fell down. The teacher had to send her out so I could fix them! That was pretty embarrassing for her.

This dress reminds me of one that I wore when I was pregnant with Kayla and it was a favorite of mine. You look so pretty pregnant!

Hahaahahhahahahahaa. I love Sparkles. Only she would announce that to everyone! She is such a little diva in this shoot! She obviously inherited her posing skills from her mom. :)
I looooove the Campbell wedge booties!

Oh Claire, Sparkles is ADORABLE!!! That hat is the best! It looks like she made Pigtails her assistant:-)) Love it!
Oh and you look fab too! I'm so happy to know that if I ever decide to do the bio route, there are cute maternity clothes out there. You're a great advertisement for pregnant chic:-)

I'm waiting for the day when you reach for the camera and find on file a whole set of photos taken by Sparkles of herself and Pigtails
Poor Camo, you can bet the next time he takes PS to class, he'll ask.

You look adorable in that dress--I know that I keep saying that, but a lot of preggy ladies don't. Btw, if Rachel Zoe can wear sky high heels to the delivery room, so can you!

Mongs said...

you're one funky moma. I like that maternity dress with the funky boots. I would wear the dress too. Looks great with the fringe bag. Your girls are always so funny! I'm having fun just looking at them in your outfit pictures! Girls are just different, my boys would never want to be in the pictures even if I give them fifty bucks.

Such a great dress, love how you are styling with your bump!!

Van @ The Clothes We Wear said...

You are gorgeous! Though, I'm not pregnant (I have a 2 year-old) I find your style and the fact that you are a busy mama of 2.5 kiddos, quite inspiring. Love the effortless look with those killer wedge boots. P.S. I clicked through from [oomph.]

That dress is ADORABLE, and I'm sure Princess Sparkles made quite the stir at her gymnastics class! hehe! Your girls are too funny!

Mrs. J said...

You look wonderful and your daughter reminds me of my 2 year cousin. Whenever she sees a camera she starts to pose and cheese. I think it's hilarious!

Keep wearing those fabulous shoes as long as your comfortable! :)
