One of the last things that still fits... (sort of) OOTD
My summery clothes that don't have elastic waists have been sorely neglected all season. Every time I try to make something work, I'm left with stuck zippers, snug bodices, and belly-shortened lengths. So when I had to go to campus for an orientation event, I was really nervous. Most of my colleagues still do not know that I'm pregnant. It isn't at all a secret but the semester's end happened to correspond with a time when I wasn't showing at all. Picking something somewhat professional from my remaining regular clothes was really tough. I went with this black Theory dress which fit (sort of). Honestly, until I saw these photos I didn't realize how bust-emphasizing this dress had become in my current physical state.
In retrospect, I'm glad that the overly air conditioned buildings necessitated a cardigan for my meetings.
I'm not even a huge fan of summer clothing and I find myself sad to see my regular wardrobe options dwindle. Fall, which is my favorite clothing season, is going to be even more difficult.

p.s. Thank you for all the kind words generated from my previous post. I'm so excited to raise a strong, smart, stylish child!
