I’m sitting here on my couch writing this post after what has been a pretty busy and productive weekend checking things off the baby to-do list. La La Land is on in the background and this movie still gives me all the feels – I’m watching the scene towards the end of the movie that is basically the “what could have happened” part and I literally get chills the entire time… what is wrong with me?! Anyone else? Ita and I have the soundtrack on a record and play it in the house when we’re cleaning sometimes. It’s nice. 🙂 Anyway! I wanted to make sure I got this outfit up before this twist sweater dress sold out (and the fact that I took these photos a month ago…).
This twist sweater dress is made of a ribbed knit and has a mock neck (my favorite). The twist down the middle is a pop of chartreuse cable knit and I think it is so fun and unexpected. If chartreuse isn’t your thing, it also comes in a beautiful cream and deep fuchsia color that I really love! It’s an oversized fit so definitely bump-friendly!
I paired the dress with my black over the knee boots (identical ones here) but I think it could also look really cute with a pair of white pumps or booties! I’m wearing the coolest ring my friend Tamar created. She is an extremely talented artist whose work has literally been in exhibits around the world not to mention worn on the runway during New York Fashion Week (she’s amazing). You can see her work here!
Like I mentioned we checked a few things off the baby to-do list like putting up the wallpaper (it was actually a lot more difficult than we anticipated… more on that in a future post), installing the blinds (thanks Dad!), washing all of the clothes and blankets, Ita put together our swing and SNOO, and just lots of other little things. The nursery actually looks like a nursery now and it’s starting to sink in that my due date is only a week away. I’m still working and have a lot to get done (gosh am I always saying that? So much to do all the time!). I’m trying to tell myself that I HAVE to get everything done by tomorrow – for all I know I could go into labor at any moment! With that being said, if you’ve had a baby, did you have a feeling you were going into labor? I mean other than full-blown contractions or your water breaking… was anything different those 24 hours leading up to being in labor? Let me know!
I go back to the doctor on Tuesday for my 39 week appointment. Hopefully I’ll have more updates soon! Hope you had a great weekend!
