Phew! What a crazy good week with trying to get everything wrapped up with the nursery
! Now that the room has been painted and we have furniture, it really is starting to feel like a nursery. I can’t wait to get those finishing detail pieces in that will make it feel like a little baby girl’s
I’ve been running around, but managed to snap lots of pictures of one of my favorite casual, boho-ish brands, Free People. My fave Nordstrom carries lots of Free People styles and I’m digging so many at the moment. You know I love their style – the pieces are easy to wear and always have a little detail that makes each piece unique.
A super cute running around top I’m loving lately is my Free People Solid Muscle Tee. I dig the shape, low seam, and short side slits. Also, I like a high neckline sometimes, especially on days this baby is breaking out my chest! One of the not-to-pretty side effects of pregnancy! The top also comes in an army brown “fatigue”, but I prefer the “washed red”. It goes perfectly well with jeans or with camo pants like I wore last week.
For running errands, you know I’d pull on my trusty Skechers GOwalk sneaks, but I wanted to show you how you can dress up your camo and tee with a pair of heels too. Instant dressier look.
You can also dress a tee like this up for dinner with a faux leather jacket
(been drooling over this one since last year and scooped it up as soon as I saw it again a couple weeks ago!), booties and a statement necklace.
And just so you can see how long this tee is in the back, perfect booty-covering length!
I’m wearing an XS, but it’s pushing the boundaries of this 22 week baby bump. It would fit less snugly if I wasn’t pregnant. I’m trying to buy clothes that will last beyond pregnancy, but if I buy another one of these, I’ll get the Small because this runs a little small. Isn’t the cuff detail adorable?! Somebody make me a hot toddy and build me a fire!
It even has a cute seam detail in the back.
Your next favorite weekend pullover is up next. You will want to live in this one
! Talk about the perfect mix of comfy and cute, it’s long sleeve with a big slouchy turtleneck, but it’s also thin, so it’s ultra wearable. It only comes in two sizes XS/S and M/L. I’m wearing the XS/S
and it fits great loosely. It runs big, but is also 100% cotton and I haven’t washed it yet. I will probably like it even better if it shrinks a tiny bit, the length would be better for this shorty.
Now onto the dresses!! I love to wear a dress, something so easy about just putting on one piece of clothing and then accessorizing. This type of style is perfect for this baby bump, when I already just want to be comfortable!
I adore the feminine floral pattern and cranberry fall color of this dress.

I paired it with a faux leather brown jacket (similar)
and brown knee high boots to show you the versatility and how you can still wear your shorter dresses in cooler months. The brown jacket I linked is the same one I’m wearing above with the muscle tee – it also comes in a really pretty light blue.

(both on sale)
The dress is a good length in the back too.
Looking for a longish black dress for our school’s adults-only Day of the Dead Harvest party, I found this perfect lace maxi slipdress
. It’s currently on sale and I love the eggplant color too. It would be super sexy on a date night or girl’s night out too. Be forewarned, it’s totally lacy and sheer so I’m wearing a black tank with lace trim and boy shorts underneath. But this dress is so fun to wear and you could also just pair a pretty slip underneath. I actually think it would look even better on someone a little taller (I’m 5’0) and the straps were just a tad too loose (but layering the tank helped).
22 week baby bump is showing it’s still okay to feel feminine and beautiful while growing a tiny human. I don’t always feel feminine and pretty while pregnant, but so far, so good. And much, much better than last time!
And can I tell you something funny, if not super embarrassing? When I went to link this dress, I couldn’t find it on the Nordstrom website, even though their search bar is usually really good at finding things. Then I realized why. I was searching for ‘Free People dresses’ and this one is actually listed as a nightgown! OMG! Don’t tell!
Phew! That was a lot of looks! I hope you stayed with me till the end! See you tomorrow for Weekend Steals & Deals – a rainbow of sweaters edition! And wish me luck on the nursery!
