What to Wear Postpartum

Bloggy friends, sorry for the hiatus in LBS.com blogging.  This post about my desire to stop having to wear clothing with panels should explain why my inspiration for daily shopping has waned.  Read more at Momaha.com today for tips on dressing a postpartum figure!

My paying gig: What I wore

I’ve been so bad at this “what I wore” segment – usually because there is no one around to take my picture when I’m rushing out of the house to my next destination.Momaha mug

However, I did rustle up most of the items I’ve been wearing lately –  and a few “similar” items I’ve found online.

Daily Covet: Letarte Cotton Coverup

Hi friends!

You’re probably wondering if I gave up on LBS.com or what.  Truth is, I took on a lot of freelance writing work recently and am also winding up the school year with my two boys…

This has meant less time shopping for me and a little less to covet.

But fear not, I do have a long list of covets as I head into the end of this pregnancy.  While I’m coveting virtually everything non-maternity, one item I’d love to add to my summer wardrobe is a swim coverup that will “cover” me through the summer.

This Letarte scalloped drawstring cotton tunic is so feminine and so light and so airy, I can imagine wearing it to and from the pool on the hottest of days — now that we are experiencing some 80+ degree weather!

And trust me when I say I’ve got plenty to cover up these days!!  (Are we there yet, baby?)

My paying gig: Maternity fashion for the modern mamma

So I haven’t made a formal announcement as far as littleblacksweats.com is concerned, but this post may tip you bloggy friends off to the obvious.

I am happy to report that my husband and I are expecting another baby boy this summer (our third!)  At the time this blog was published, I was just 13 weeks along, but am on the verge of hitting the 16-week mark on Friday – 4 months down, an eternity to go, it seems!

Maternity clothes are my new reality.  So what does a momma-to-be-again wear when warmer weather hits and pup tents are out of the question?  Ive put together some fun options for day-to-night, casual weekends, and beach or pool time.

Check them out here!

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Darla Sandal

Is it summer yet?

I’m ready for sandals.  How about Kate Spade Darla Sandals to be exact?  These are absolutely the cutest with all the colors of the rainbow and natural-colored pantent straps.  Three patent straps that I absolutely love.  This is a great update from similar sandals last summer and I love the new look.

I know we’ve got a long way to go, but I’m needing to pump my collection of cute wedges, flip flops, maxi dresses, handbags and accessories.

Why?  Because I will be spending the summer (all or most of it) pregnant.  Yep, you heard it here… and here for a twist on the news… that this girl will be putting high fashion on hold in favor of roomy (and tent-like) clothing.  But I digress…

Let’s just take a look and a drool at these pretties!

Daily Covet: I might be “Nesting”

I’m pretty sure I’m “nesting.”  No, I’m not pregnant and I haven’t decided that I ever will be again.  But IF I did get pregnant and IF I did have a little girl and IF I won the lottery or a obtained a large inheritance and could justify buying a new crib, this is the one I would buy.

Having a baby girl means my dream of a baby girl’s nursery, fit for a princess, would finally come true.  While I was looking for furniture for my future sunroom makeover, I ran across this gorgeous crib at Restoration Hardware.  It looks so retro and “royal.”  Maybe the exquisite chandelier, soaring windows and ballet pink curtains help!

You’ve done it again, Kate!

To all my pregnant readers, who would otherwise be consumers of tasty cocktails.  See KateSpade.com’s list of “Mocktails” and keep the recipes handy… you know the consumption of the real thing could quite possibly lead to the necessity of the unleaded versions!
