Sweet as Honey

To inspire myself to get dressed through winter, I’ve started a series on YouTube of weekly maternity style. I call it thrifted maternity style because most of it IS thrifted, but each video might touch on different styles or places to find what I call “non maternity” maternity clothes. The more pregnancies I go through, the fewer maternity items I purchase, opting instead to thrift stretchy, sized-up, high-waisted, and longer items that will cover me (and my belly) through most of my pregnancy. The only thing I’ll eveer purchase full price is maternity jeans, because those things are gold!

Today, I desperately wanted to wear this new bee-embroidered cardigan I found at my favorite Goodwill for $4. I don’t have much in this color, but decided to step out of my match-all-things comfort zone and mix it with this also-thrifted gorgeous wool skirt that, if you’ll forgive me, I will probably LIVE in this winter.

I was extra delighted when my new Breckelles arrived first thing this morning, in this gorgeous taupe, and they perfectly match the grayish tone in my skirt! So my match-all-the-things soul was appeased.

I can’t wait to style this skirt with lots of other things. It  has so much potential in its coloring, and I’m excited to have a skirt like this that fits me again! I had so many at one point, but then I had babies and my waist is no longer 27″. Far from it, ha! Someday, maybe I’ll find a way to alter them, or maybe even fit them again! But for now, during pregnancy, I am on the hunt for more like this.

I hope you are all having a fantastic holiday season! I am absolutely not prepared for Christmas at all, and still have several unfinished handmade gifts to complete and wrap. But I’m excited. It will be a lovely slow Christmas this year, and we can just hang out with family and not have to run around and be crazy. My favorite kinds of holidays!

What are you doing this season?

    It was so nice to spend some time catching up on your blog! I’ve missed it – and I am OBSESSED with this sweater. I may need to add it to my list of ISOs….that shade of green is an absolutely stunning color on you. Happy Holidays to you and yours!
