outfit: snow days and pin ups

sweater: hand-me-down | tank top: NEX | jeans: Motherhood Maternity | belt: thrifted | necklace: vintage (really a bracelet!) | scarf: vintage | shoes: Blowfish

My tongue-in-cheek nod to pin up poses! lol. Hey–got to have fun and a little laugh at myself since I am starting to feel more like Humpty Dumpty these days and less like my old self. hehe! I wore this over the weekend, right as they were predicting snow for the region. Something warm and cozy to curl up under a blanket with, but also presentable enough to go out (which I had to do). Lots of knits these days–which is weird considering how much I used to eschew knits and elastic! I have changed my tune quite a bit. hehe!


I really love how easy this scarf ‘do is; I think it’s going to become one of the ones I work on getting down to second nature over the coming weeks so I can use it to cover up when I haven’t been able to wash my hair for days once Miss Blueberry arrives! It’s better than a ponytail every day, which often just gives me a headache since my hair is so long and thick…

The baby shower my sister is sweetly throwing for me is coming up soon! I am getting so excited… Partly because this means the baby’s arrival is drawing closer, and my sister chose an Alice in Wonderland/Mad Hatter tea party theme for the event! I’ll be sure to take loads of pictures to share with y’all! (Especially as a lot of the decorations are very DIY-friendly.)

Hi Casey, I’m not sure how you are feeling but you are a beautiful and adorable pregnant lady! I just read about your baby shower. I did decorations for a co-workers bridal shower and the theme for the shower and the wedding was Alice in Wonderland. Feel free to pass along my address if she’s looking for ideas!

I love that you’re already playing peekabo with the little one. :)

Excited for the baby shower party now that I know the theme! Do you know what you’ll be wearing?

Casey, I am blown away by how fabulous you are! Toward the end of my pregnancies, I could barely even fit into sweatpants and my hubby’s giant tee-shirts! You are an absolute doll!! :)

P.S. I tried to post the comment on your youtube account, but it kept saying error.

I’m amazed at how well you’re able to put together such lovely maternity outfits that look so stylish! You’d make a big buck becoming a personal fashion consultant! I’m so happy for you, about the little Miss Blueberry. What a cutsie love name!

Your hairdo is very smart and looks simple enough to achieve – is that a sock bun I see? I absolutely adore the necklace in these photos!

I adore how much fun you were having in these shots! I bet wee little blueberry can pick up on your feel-good vibes and loves knowing her mommy is such a cheerful person.

Wishing you a fantastic February, sweet gal!

You look so adorable! And I love the scarf look. Is it just tied in a knot on top? Have a lovely shower!

Long time since I’ve been here, but…you look fabulous!! Just FABULOUS! And you’re having a girl?? Squeee! Parents and in-laws must be almost salivating at the chance to spoil that little one silly! S.H. must be dying to get that first look at his newborn daughter, too.

SO happy for you…wishing you all the best, dahlink!

Love,

Love the hair do! I am always looking for simple do’s since I don’t have much time to spend on me with all my kiddos (&nieces & nephews) running around. Is it just a bun in back?

You always have the cutest outfits. The background in your pictures always look cute too. Do you plan on doing a room/house tour anytime? Love your style.

I am glad that you know about your baby shower. I am not fond of surprises though (and my mom sent me an invite to my baby shower, since she knows I hate them). You look so pretty and skinny not humpty dumpty looking at all. So lovely. You’re adorable!!! I miss talking to you.

Sarah February 10, 2013 at 00:02

Casey, you look adorable! Way cuter than the 3 times I was pregnant. Your skin is positively glowing. Miss Blueberry is sure lucky to have you as her mom and future wardrobe stylist. Enjoy your pregnancy. And the shower! Creative theme. :)

You’re looking so gorgeous here! And for hair, dry shampoo! It’s my best friend on lazy mornings.

Wow, it is much longer since I last checked out your blog than I thought. Congrats on the pregnancy! You look wonderful!

Aw, those last few weeks can be so rough. I just had my fifth baby last year and the average spacing for my kids is 23 months from birth to birth, so I’ve spent mucho amounts of time pregnant over the past decade and can certainly comiserate. You look absolutely fantastic, though! Any pregnant gal would be thrilled to look as adorable as you!

Love your hair! (MAYBE when things get less hectic you could make a tutorial)! Miss Blueberry’s baby shower sounds lovely, make sure to take lots of pictures:-) Blessings! <3
