Another Way to Wear - Black Bodycon Dress

Maternity Dress (love this casual dress or this dressier option if you aren't pregnant!) - Amazon / Wrap (similar here and here) - Sole Society / Maternity Fleece-Lined Tights - Loft / Booties - TOMS / Bag - Tory Burch / Velvet Hair Bow (similar here and here) - J.Crew / Charm Bracelet - Jet Set Candy / Necklace - Stella & Dot

I bought this dress on the cheap for my baby shower at the beginning of December (here's how I wore it then) figuring I'd only wear it one time, but I ended up getting a ton of use out of it over the past month! It's the perfect base layer for adding whatever else you want on top of it - a scarf, a poncho, a cardigan, a vest, or a flannel button down. Plus it really shows off that baby bump! These pictures are from before Christmas - the bump is somehow a lot bigger now!

This plaid wrap is a tiny bit Christmas-y (okay, maybe a lot with the red and green!) but it's actually pretty easy to wear post-Christmas too since it's just a touch of red. If you're looking to wear your holiday pieces into the winter, just try to tone down the Christmas a little by not pairing with other red and green items - I'm most likely to wear this with all black come January. This exact poncho is a couple years old now, and I have a huge collection of similar wraps in my closet. They're so versatile and so cozy to wear in the winter - it's a socially acceptable way to wear a blanket! Here are a few of my favorites that are currently in stock: 

This week has been pretty quiet for me so far, things always slow way down over here in January both work-wise and social-wise. I haven't had any doctor's appointments this week (it's starting to feel like I live there - I'm 33 weeks!!) and I had to remotely attend my work team's offsite since I'm not allowed to fly, which meant staying on the computer true California hours (read: until 7 or 8pm Chicago time) the past couple of days. I'm actually fine with the slower days though because I've definitely noticed my energy levels dropping again - over the weekend I was in bed by nine each night! Getting in all that sleep before baby comes I guess - or at least trying to make up for the sleep I miss by repeatedly getting up to go to the bathroom or turning over to try to get comfortable! We do have a few fun things planned for this weekend though, including a Blackhawks game. Cross your fingers I'm able to keep my eyes open the whole time!
