I wore this outfit to work on Tuesday.  These green skinny khaki’s are from Old Navy.  They are non-maternity and I don’t know how in the world they still fit, but they do !! and so I have them on a heavy rotation.  It was a bit chilly that morning so I broke out this thin orange sweater from storage.  I love the color in the Fall and it was perfect for the weather.  I didn’t want to wear ballet flats so I went with these brown Oxford style shoes.  My ankles were cold and I had to wear socks even though I think it looks kinda silly.  On one hand I thought that this outfit looked good but then on the other I thought (and felt) like a giant pumpkin.

These photo’s from Friday morning are a little less blurry but still not as crisp and sharp as I would like.  I asked my husband to focus the camera but we were both rushing to get out the door on time so it was a quick effort.  I woke up chilly that morning so I went with my non-maternity skinny olive-green pants, a cream-colored maternity top, and a navy boyfriend style cardigan.  My feet were cold and even though I think the socks look a bit silly I wasn’t willing to go without socks on my feet.  I’m not necessarily in love with how this outfit looks but it was comfortable.  I am amazed that these pants are still working this far in to my pregnancy.

On Saturday I went with a sporty and casual outfit of jeans, a long-sleeved white t-shirt, and an Indian’s jersey.

I am wearing the jersey opened and unbuttoned since we are past the point of being able to button it.  LoL.  It’s hard to tell from how I’m posed in this picture but I am wearing a white belly band from Wal-Mart.  It’s a stretchy tube of fabric that can help give support to the baby bump.  But, it also allows for me to wear my jeans unzipped and unbuttoned without being improper.  The belly band goes over my pants to hold them up and cover that they aren’t zipped and then I wore my long-sleeved t-shirt un-tucked over that for an additional layer.  It’s very functional and is helping me get more mileage out of my non-maternity clothes.

Thursday I got up, got dressed, and went to work.  Except I wasn’t supposed to be at work.  I know– you’re thinking how could that happen?  But, there’s a simple explanation.  I’ve been working with my employer to reduce my hours to part-time and all of the paperwork and everything finally went through.  The trouble is that they notified me through my work e-mail and they don’t allow remote access.  So, I had no idea that everything had been finalized until I was at work and reading through my e-mail.

But, it wasn’t all bad.  Since I was already up, dressed, and ready for the day I took advantage of that motivation and went home to do some more packing.  That day I tackled about 75% of the kitchen– all of the dishware, glasses, pots & pans that we can do without for the next few weeks.  I left a few glasses, coffee cups, plates, bowls, one frying pan, sauce pan, and large pot.  That’s when I ran out of boxes.  So, I took that break as an opportunity to go grocery shopping and get some more packing boxes.  Then, I came back home and did some more packing and worked on school stuff.  All in all, it was quite a productive day.

For the workday that I didn’t work, I paired my blue and white striped maternity shirt from Old Navy with my non-maternity olive-green skinny khaki pants– also from Old Navy.  I was going to wear my white converse for sort of a casual and sporty look, but my husband wore his green khaki pants with a navy Indian’s polo and his brown deck shoes so I was inspired to do the same.  I’m glad that I did because when I looked back in the gallery the last time I wore this t-shirt I paired it with medium-wash boot cut jeans and my white converse.  So, this was something different.
