Patterned Leggings and a Junk Bed

Princess Sparkles loves her new bunk bed.
She now goes to sleep at night willingly.  Yay!
She likes to "protect" her bed with lots of dolls and animals.
It actually looks more like a junk bed than a bunk bed :)

Monday's Inspiration - Taylor Swift

PATTERNED LEGGINGS - Mix It (JC Penney), $5
BLACK TOP - Gap Maternity (hand-me-down)
CREAM CARDIGAN - Old Navy
BRACELETS - Forever 21, Cynde Daniels
PURSE, CUFF - Heavenly Treasures
HAT - Made by my mom
BOOTS - Frye (gifted)





I'm back in leggings, boots and a sweater thanks to "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.  I went with a cardigan because it's warm here.  This 20's style hat a favorite my mom, Fair Isle, knitted for me.  And these Frye boots are so comfy.  I'm so thankful my sister-in-law, Argyle, gifted me with them!  The Heavenly Treasures purse is from Thailand, and it's been so versatile for me since so many of my maternity outfits have been neutrals!

The new bunk bed (after limiting Sparkles to 10 "friends" to slumber with)

Both girls were born on Saturdays so Camouflage and I thought it was possible the baby might come over the weekend. But baby stayed put for now.  It could be any day now which is good since even my maternity clothes are starting to NOT fit.  Once the third arrives Camo and I too are going to need to limit the number of guests in our bed, otherwise no one's going to get good sleep!!!

Lately when I click on your blog from my reader, I keep thinking today's the big day! I look at you and think I was never so stylish when I was expecting so many years ago. Is Princess Sparkles sleeping on the top or with all of her animals?

Shea said...

Wow your mom knitted that hat, amazing! I love your take on Taylor's look. For some reason I couldn't put anything together for Inspiration Monday this week, but I'm enjoying seeing others' takes!
