At almost 4 months pregnant now, I was pleasantly surprised at how little the bump shows when you throw on a button-up, and then a vest over top. Not that I’m not excited about my bump, but I’m barely showing now, and I know that I’ll have plenty of time to dress for showing off the bump… and I’ll just miss my regular clothes, probably sooner than I think.

So, for now, I’m dressing to conceal the bump, until it decides that it no longer wants to be concealed. We’re getting there! :)

Five Year Anniversary Pictures with Kingsbridge Photography

When Ross and I got married, in 2009, we opted for more traditional wedding pictures. I’ll always love those pictures, because they’re memories of our actual wedding day. But, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve really come to love the more artistic shots that so many people have from their wedding. So, for our five year anniversary, I put on my wedding dress, Ross got all dressed up too, and we headed out into the woods to recreate our wedding day, for a moment. I hope you love these shots as much as I do. I am enthralled with the incredible work that Christi did.

Not that it’s news to you, but it’s been (unbeknownst to me), my own personal goal to see just how many ways I can remix a few of these chambray/denim tops I have. They’re practically the same exact top, and I just keep grabbing whichever one is clean and wearing it with…. everything. See, I read somewhere, as a style tip, to choose which items in your closet you wear the most, and get a few more of those. ‘Cause, clearly you love them, and clearly, you could use more of them. More is more. But, I don’t know if they foresaw me wearing what looked like the same top every.single.day. See the problem?

Ironically, I was (jokingly) making fun of my husband for the exact same thing recently. He has his favorite shirts… and he weeeaarrrsss them. You know? Like – oh my gosh, I used to like that shirt, now I’m not even sure anymore – wears them. Then, I scroll around a little on my blog and find I’ve been doing the exact same thing. (Actually, I realized this when every single one of my profile pictures on facebook for the last while has been of me in one of my beloved chambray tops.) People probably wonder if I own other tops. I know you thought the point of a style blog was to wear different outfits and pieces of clothing. Looks like it’s actually to wear the same top every day and try to photograph it from a different angle, holding a different clutch.
