Dare I say it? Spring may have finally arrived around here … well, at least I wore flats (instead of boots) on my commute for a week straight, so that’s a start. Can we make it two weeks without a new dump of snow? Did I just jinx all of us? [Edited to add: Yes, yes, I did. Sorry, everyone!]
On to the outfits!

I realized that it had been a long time since I last wore this skirt, and it felt like time to give it another spin. Red suede Mary Janes add to the slightly twee vibe, but I think it still ended up on the right side of “grown up”. I balanced things out with delicate jewelry.
Tuesday, April 23, 2013: work … never ends
No “pants day” this time! I decided to keep this week a strictly skirts-and-dresses affairs. I’m still hunting for the perfect cream blouse to wear with this skirt, so in the meantime I paired it with black, again.

… I have a confession: our family is about to grow, again. Yep, come September, we will be welcoming a new addition to the family and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it! In the meantime, you can expect to see a lot more muumuus on BCRL (only partially kidding, by the way) and more complaints from me about the abysmal quality of maternity clothing. Hang on – it’s going to be a bump-y ride! Sorry, I just couldn’t resist – I promise, that was my one and only bump-related pun.
[A small request: I am hoping to keep this a Facebook-free pregnancy, and would very much appreciate your help in that regard. Please message me any time – or better yet, let’s make plans for coffee – and I will happily fill you in on all those STFU Parents-worthy updates 😉 Thanks!]
