Plaid, Plum, and Pumps

Dress - Anthro; Shirt - J. Crew; Tights - Anthro; Shoes - Urban; Necklace - Anthro

I was considering naming this post "Plaid, Plump, and Pumps" but opted to do otherwise because I thought the title might attract too much attention. I was aiming for the alliteration piece, and also trying to tie in some relevancy with the outfit. So it's obvious why why I chose plaid, plum and pumps. SN: I LOVE my new pumps!!! However you may not know why I wanted to replace "plum" with "plump". The funny thing about blogging is that you really make a connection with the people who follow you. I feel like I have a lot of friends out there in the blogosphere that I've never met, but that are still friends nonetheless. This becomes a challenge when you want to share something with these so-called "friends" but not with everybody and their momma. I've been toying with this issue for the past couple of months, and I'm finally at the point where I'm just going to keep it real with my dedicated followers...I'm expecting! I'm 20 weeks or 5 months - due July 27, and I want everything else to be a surprise. That's why I'm a little more plump in my pictures, and that's all I'll say about that for now.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!

    I had NO idea from the pictures. I just went back and scanned through some of the pics, and nope. I still can't tell. I can sort of tell with this picture though, and you're definitely glowing. But then again, you've been glowing all along!

    Anyway, I wish you all the best throughout this pregnancy and beyond. Keep us posted!

  14. This is funny because when I saw the 50's post I thought to myself, "Is she pregnant?" But I don't *know* you because I'm a lurker and it would have been rude to ask. Anyway...

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! You look fabulous.
