I posted a picture of how we revealed the baby’s gender to our family on Instagram yesterday, and one of my Insta-friends commented “oh my gosh, you’re wearing jeans!” so I thought… maybe I should blog them more often. Because right now, I do wear jeans a lot. I’m starting to get to that “I feel like a whale in flared dresses” phase, so I prefer more fitted silhouettes, including (surprisingly) jeans.
But styling jeans in a retro way has always stumped me. How the heck do you do retro jean maternity wear?
This hair helps a lot, though! While I grow my bangs out, this might be my go-to lazy hair day hairstyle. I love the little roll in the front! Also, I’m getting really tempted to cut my hair a-la Southern California Belle, Butterfly Loves Snapdragons, and Vixen Vintage, so that I can style it a bit more retro with curls. So that might happen. Today, we’re visiting a lighthouse that my father-in-law manned back when he and my mother-in-law were first married. It’s the lighthouse’s 100 year anniversary, and he (and his family) has been invited as a special guest to the 100 year exhibit that is going on. I really love lighthouses, so I’m super excited to go visit and see it! They got to live in this lighthouse, which… so jealous. It would be a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. I’ve always wanted to live by the sea, which I think started my love for lighthouses. And then the fact that they’re just so pretty and unique in build, and that there are so many of them around this area… and, of course, they’re on Washington’s unique beaches (which are sometimes rock beaches, or grassy dunes), and the history of each building.

I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures! My in laws also want me to do a photoshoot with them one Saturday when it’s sunny and looks like good photoshoot weather, which will be fun! But that’s not today.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
