27 weeks and back to basics

I would never describe or consider myself trendy or on the edge of fashion, or anything like that, but I am learning what my personal style is. A couple of years ago I found myself wearing things that did not flatter at all and all looked the same... pretty gross. I became a mom at 21 and never learned my style before my body had changed forever, and then I was really lost. For my 28th birthday a friend took me shopping and I wasn't allowed to buy anything I normally would have gotten. I started doing really well and not finding the most trendy or stylish things, but getting things that fit who I am. That was until I found out I was pregnant (2 days before my 29th birthday) and everything I had learned disappeared. Must be that pregnancy brain. My wardrobe options are obviously very limited, but one thing I love is cuffing my jeans with flats. I know it is winter and I live in the Pacific Northwest where it rains a lot, but just cuffing my jeans this morning and putting on one of my favorite non-maternity tops, brought me back, even if just a little.

I should have tugged my coat down just a little

*this posting pictures of myself  thing is still so scary!
