I’m officially full term today at 38 weeks, Bond girls! I’ve enjoyed sharing my pregnancy journey with you, and I hope it’s been helpful in some way. Baby Bond Girl Glam is fully developed and looks pretty much how she will look whenever she decides to make her debut, according to the Baby Center app. I’m thankful that I don’t have anything major to complain about (just the usual heart burn, swelling, inability to tie/zip/fasten my shoes), and I hope you can send some positive labor dust for a healthy delivery sometime in the next two weeks or so.
Now has been a good time to start thinking about what pieces I have that will work after giving birth and hopefully into nursing and beyond. This casual ensemble is a perfect example. The cardigan, as any cardigan of course, can be worn after baby comes, and the basic white tank is a nursing tank that I’ve already packed away into my hospital bag. The leggings are a good pair of classic black non-see-through leggings that don’t go over the bump, so I can wear them now and later. All three of these items are from the Xpecting Maternity boutique in Costa Mesa, California.
I styled the casual look with a leopard print infinity scarf, a Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC bag that I may not be able to wear for a little while after baby comes (I’m getting my last few uses out of things that may not be practical soon), and my trusty Hunter boots. The rain these past few days in Southern California has been a welcome change, since we really need it, so the wellies have come out!
Xpecting Maternity is a curated boutique in Orange County for pregnancy, nursing, and motherhood; they carry many brands I’ve come to love during pregnancy, such as Nom, Belabumbum, DL Premium Denim, Bump Nest, and many more; in fact, their store is approximately 2/3 non-maternity.
