Oh Baby


One month until baby C arrives!  What better way to celebrate than with sharing our maternity photo's.  

I knew with our maternity session I wanted something with a little glam and sophistication.  I am actually a bit moody in personality and since I am about to turn 32 and my hubs is 33 I really wanted a look that captured this era of age for us.  I also wanted to go almost full opposite of my boho baby shower look

I opted for a long black gown.  I wanted something dramatic.  Can you believe this beauty is only $51?!?!?! Such a style steal.  There are a lot of really pretty customized maternity gowns out there but most of them did not look wearable again for the future and are basic jersey stretch fabric.  I couldn't justify dropping $200-$300 on a dress I would never wear again when there's still items we need for the nursery.  

I sized up two sizes in this dress since it's not technically a maternity dress but the fabric is stretchy.  I wanted to make sure my bump had the room it needed.  For jewelry I opted for these statement lion door-knocker earrings (because baby C is due to be a Leo just like his mama) I managed to style my own hair in a mix of fishtail and regular milkmaid braids, which is a miracle because I am terrible at up-dos.
