Plaid Leggings, Sally Hansen Salon Effects and a Few Reminders

"Momma, I hungee!" 
Yesterday we had eaten but forgot to feed Pigtails since she was napping. 
Being the 2nd child is tough.  And it's not getting easier when baby arrives.
"Momma, change pants!"
She often tells me when she needs a diaper change too.  Bad mommy.

PLAID LEGGINGS - Hue (thrifted)
BROWN TANK - Gap Maternity
BLACK CARDIGAN - Motherhood Maternity
FEDORA - Forever 21
BOOTS - Frye
Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Thank goodness for leggings.  My legs are probably the thinnest part of me (though maybe not my ankles) so it's something I like to wear.  These fun leggings were a Christmas gift from my mom, Fair Isle, who thrifted them new!  And the boots are my Christmas gift from my sister-in-law, Argyle

I also decided to try out Sally Hansen Salon Effects.  This plaid one was on clearance at Target (since it's "Christmas-y").  Even though it comes with one set for each hand, if you have short nails like me you can cut them and get two sets out of them!  They were easier than I imagined, though I definitely had some trial and error this first time.

Pigtails "cooks" since her mommy forgets to feed her :(

Speaking of cooking, this little baby is almost ready to come out.  I'll be full term (37 weeks) on Friday.  Good thing Pigtails learned to speak early because once the new baby arrives I'll really be in need of reminders...

poor pigtails. i bet you wish she was potty trained. she's so cute, as are your in your outfit. it won't be much longer until you're a mother of 3. so are the salon effects a thumbs up or a thumbs down? different people have different opinions. i haven't tried them yet.

First I cannot get over how you kept up your fashion till the very end--well done! I can't believe you're almost ready to have this baby, I'll be thinking about you Claire!

p.s. although I'm the worst at remembering to go thrift shopping--I just found out that my sweater (one and only find of last year) is a Ralph Lauren from his Santa Fe Collection - yay!

I have really been curious to try these Sally Hansen nail effects things, but I haven't had the time. They look super cute on you, so I might need to give it a shot sooner rather than later.
