Stranger to Myself

These days I rarely have time to catch up on blogs (let alone update my own) but I get quite envious of those bloggers who are actually experiencing colder climates.  Here in California I'm dealing with triple digit temps and it's killing me!  Carrying all this extra weight is hard enough as it is but being hot all the time is making it so much worse.  I look forward to the day when I can order my pumpkin spiced latte hot!

Dress- Modcloth
Belt- from another dress
Shoes- Seychelles
Bracelet- Swarovski
Headband- Forever 21

This dress was the last of my latest Modcloth haul.  I really love the print and the cutout detail on the neckline.  I'm excited to take this piece from summer into fall and hopefully throughout my pregnancy.  To be honest, I've had a really hard time dealing with the weight gain and how it's affecting my wardrobe and my self esteem.  While I know I'm gaining for my daughter, it's still kind of hard to look in the mirror and not be worried if I'll ever take this all off.  There are so many emotions (and hormones) going on and sometimes it feels good to air them out... Even if it's on the Internet for everyone to read!

I'm really excited to have dinner with my brother and his fiancee this weekend.  Since he is no longer our neighbor I feel like we never see them.  I love all my siblings, but I feel most connected to him.  Which is kind of funny because I was really upset and jealous when he was born.  My parents converted the playroom so he could have a nursery, so obviously I was crushed.  Plus I wasn't into having a boy in the house.  But hey, I was six, don't judge me :)

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

xoxo
