Oh, Baby

March 6, 2012

It must be that time in my life because it feels like all my friends are getting pregnant. Seriously, every time I turn around either an old friend from high school, a co-worker, or a friend from grad school is getting knocked up! Admittedly, I am super excited about each one of them. It’s definitely not the right time for me and Mike to have a baby, but playing with my friends’ babies for a few hours every few weeks is kind of perfect. You get to hang out with a cute bundle of joy and then give them back when they start to get whiny and all searchy for the boob. I’m quite happy with my fake baby for now.  

Why am I talking about babies, you ask? Well this outfit was worn to a dear friend’s baby shower on Saturday. I wanted to wear something bright and Springy since the weather has been pretty awesome lately. Unfortunately, I woke up to an overcast sky and chilly temps so I was wearing my purple tights with the look for the shower. Once I got home and it was sunnier out I ditched the tights and ordered Mike to take some pictures of me. He obliged.

Dress: Old Navy, Belt: Target, Shoes: Payless, Sunnies: Urban Outfitters, Necklace: JCrew via Ebay, Bracelets: Forever21

That flower in the mini vase was our favors- they are so cute! I want to go buy about 5 more of them and put them all over my house. I guess I’ll just have to hope for similar favors at the next THREE baby showers I’ll be going to in the next few months. Fingers crossed!

What do you like to wear to baby showers? Are all your friends/co-workers/college friends getting preggers too?

    Super cute outfit! I had two baby showers this year and wore the same thing (I think…). I know, not very original, but just before leaving Henry spit up on me an nothing fit quite right. Ever have one of those days? You always looks so cute!

      Thanks Courtney! I can kind of relate; Reggie has come pretty close to spitting up on me a few times. Luckily, he makes really loud gagging noises before he spits up so I have time to A) push him off of me and B) make sure he spits up on the wood floor and not the bed/carpet. I do realize I’m comparing a baby to a cat, but that’s all I have to compare with at the moment! :)
