Nightgowns + Robes…I mean dresses + cardigans!


 Basically, I felt like I was wearing a nightgown and my robe all day…which counts as a home run in my book (or touch down as the case may be lately- or not :{)Blog Doma Leather Jacket Vince Drape Front Cardigan StyleMint Eva Maxi Dress Born Booties-1The Huz asked me why I was wearing a “sexy dress”.  My answer?  Because I felt chubby and didn’t want to wear anything tight.  Basically, I felt anything but sexy, and that’s when he thought I looked sexy.  It’s funny how differently men see us vs how we feel, no? Blog Doma Leather Jacket Vince Drape Front Cardigan StyleMint Eva Maxi Dress Born Booties-2That awkward moment when cars drive by and they do a double take…

Yeah, I’m standing in front of my house taking my own picture…whatever. 😉Blog Doma Leather Jacket Vince Drape Front Cardigan StyleMint Eva Maxi Dress Born Booties-3Maya always wants to get in my mouth when I’m chewing gum.

Boots- Born (thrifted, SO comfy, similar here in brown)
On Maya…
Jacket- H&M (thrifted, but similar here)

Dress- Hanna Andersson (thrifted, but similar here)
Leggings- Gap (thrifted, but similar here)
Shoes- Mexx (thrifted, but DYING over these here)
Keeping it Real…
Maya’s had a cold for the past few days.  She is still pretty happy go lucky, but just wants to cuddle and watch movies all day.  She even fell asleep on me this day, which never happens anymore!  It brought back so many memories of when she was a baby, and would sleep in my arms all the time!!  Part of me misses those days, so it’s nice to revisit them every once in a while.  Wish it wasn’t accompanied by her feeling crappy though.
I still think a little fresh air does a body good, so we have been doing little brief outtings here and there.

    Ha! I love that your husband called this a sexy dress, which you do look amazing in it! I just think it is so funny that you put in on because you were feeling self conscious (why I don’t know, you have an amazing body)!!!

      Thank you so much Amy! I JUST saw this comment (not sure why!?). I think all of us women know that no matter what weight we are at in our lives, if we are up 5 lbs, we aren’t happy. It’s not so much how I look (ok, in part it is), but more about the fact that I know I’ve been indulging for whatever reason, for the last…well, a while. Bottom line, our husbands just see “dress” and think “sexy”!! I wish I could think like him… Let’s be honest. It’s a potato sack/nightown hahaha. But he never sees me in a dress, so…ANY dress=sexy to him 😉

      Ps- I cannot WAIT to see your new home! SO excited for you!!
