Olive You

I can’t believe that we are in week 9 of the semester!  I have 3 courses this semester and other than using a different text and online learning management system I have kept most things the same.  But, this semester feels different.  I don’t feel that I have reached the same level of relationship with these classes at week 9 that I have in the past with classes.  With my evening class we are pretty close.  Everyone has settled in and gotten used to each other.  But, I am struggling with my other two classes and I don’t know how to fix it.  It’s really bumming me out.

On Monday I went with Fall shades of olive-green and khaki.  I started with the maternity khaki pants and then built the outfit from there.  I was hoping that this sleeveless button-up blouse could still work and for the most part, it did.  It had enough give at the bottom to accommodate the bump without getting hiked up and showing my belly.  Plus, it’s longer in the back so it gave me some coverage on the boot-ay as well.  But, if I’m being honest it doesn’t really work in the bust area.  If the blouse sits just right it’s fine, but otherwise the second button is straining and gaping.  I did wear a white tank top underneath but that gave little help.  I went with an olive-green boyfriend cardigan over top, brown Oxford style shoes with a slight heel, green and silver statement earrings, and my silver watch.  This is about as good as it gets for a Monday afternoon at 29 weeks pregnant.
