I haven’t written in ages! It feels like forever…but I have a really good reason for it; no silly excuses or procrastination involved. Not only have I been uninspired but I also have been quite sick since the beginning of the new year. Last time I wrote a post was all the way back in December and then when January hit, I started feeling ill and uncomfortable…so turns out I was pregnant the whole time and didn’t even know. I am not going to lie and say I was super happy or ecstatic when I found out…in fact, I was a crying mess, telling myself I still wasn’t ready to hit full adult mode on (although it already is on…)! I wanted to still be a carefree gal and do the things I wanted. However, reality and life gave me another option and another road to go by. Here I am, 12 weeks in, still feeling queasy and ill at times, but I must say that I feel much much better than I did for the past couples of weeks. Pregnancy is not as glorious as everyone claims it to be…or at least for me it isn’t yet. I have been a vomiting ball of disaster I haven’t been going out much. But since hitting the 11th week mark, I was able to get around some places without running straight to the toilet. We had a wedding to go to Friday and I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to get out of my PJs and into something a little more glamorous and clean. So, in today’s post, I wanted to share with you what I wore in Bethlehem. Since I haven’t gained weight yet, from the lack of eating, I am still able to get into my clothes and look cute. Maternity clothes are just so freaking hideous and I protest and will not get into them!!! Why the hell do they make everything so hideous and shapeless?!!! I checked a couple of stores and all I see are potato sacks and some ridiculously expensive leggings that I can buy pretty much anywhere. So I still didn’t buy any maternity wear, until I figure it out…we’ll cross that bridge, we’ll get there.
So since it’s still a little bit cold around here at night, especially outside Jericho, I doubled up with a bodysuit underneath it all. The last thing I want is to catch a cold with all that’s going on already.
WHAT I WORE
JACKET: Monsoon ◊ JUMPSUIT: Forever 21 ◊ SHOES: Topshop ◊ BELT: Vintage (unbranded) ◊ CLUTCH: Aldo ◊ VEIL: Voile Chic ◊ RINGS: Damas Gold
I went for this Forever 21 jumpsuit that I have had for 2 years now and have worn only twice and to be completely honest, it was one of the few things that was faltering and didn’t make me feel like a total fat ball (I mean I know I’m not fat, but sure feels like it; my movement it pretty limited and I’m breathless all the freaking time!!!!!). My belly sort of comes and goes…I think it’s more prominent depending on what I eat. That day, I felt a big bigger and more puffy than usual. I, however, was able to force myself and put a belt over my belly to give myself a little bit of a shape, rather than just walking around and having people wonder if I ate one too many tacos. I was quite content with the final look and yes, I went a bit ham on the makeup! Which is something I don’t usually do! But, hey, do what you feel!
My hips are obviously preparing for the baby’s birth and are larger than usual, so the jumpsuit was a little tighter around that area, but overall, the look came out better than I expected really. I ended up wearing this Monsoon military jacket again, because well quite frankly, it was expensive and I need to wear it as much as possible. Money’s worth! Haha!
So for the first time in a little over 2 months, I feel human and decently presentable. I was pretty yellow and felt like a ghost, so for me, this is a big big progress and I am super thankful that I am still standing vertical! Can’t wait to get back into blogging, have missed it so much and now I have found my strength again, I can’t wait to share more outfits and bits.
