I fully intend to do nothing but reverse mirror shots throughout this pregnancy, as that mirror makes me look much, much, MUCH more skinny than I actually am in real life. And what better time to flatter myself than right now, right?

Seriously, I had someone tell me today that she thought I might be pregnant because she thought she could see it in my hips. Not in my stomach, which currently looks like I am about 5 months pregnant, instead of the three months that I actually am (which I'm pretty sure I can thank Brigid for...and don't think I'm not adding that to my guilt stockpile for when she tries to out-brat me as a teenager...), but in my hips.

IN MY HIPS!#$!%*!

I knew this, of course, because I have a couple of stretchy skirts that I thought would get me through the earlier stages of my pregnancy, but which started to do a weird, pulling thing across my butt well before I was ready for it, but still...

Nobody wants to hear that, you know?


Blouse: Banana Republic (outlet, probably? It was a gift from my MiL when I was pregnant with Brigid)
Sweater: Gap
Skirt: Motherhood Maternity
Shoes: Nine West (from Macy's)


  1. I think you look lovely and I can't tell that you're pregnant! You look great!!

    I walked through the maternity section at Target this afternoon after trying on a dress... I saw the cutest tee that I would have purchased if I was pregnant, but I'm not. So I didn't, but it was seriously cute and on clearance!! I should have picked it up for you. :)

  2. Sheesh, what is with people?? When someone is pregnant, I pretty much refrain from making any comments about how their body looks. Who needs to hear that their hips look pregnant? Rude!

  3. Wait wait, what?!?!?! B's going to be an older sister! Holy, I'm behind on posts. Please forgive me?

    If it makes you feel any better, I've been told I have "child bearing hips"... and I've never even been pregnant. *smacks face*

    You look good, Tara! Keep rocking those heels for as long as possible!

  4. Girl, I totally carried Avi (my second) in my butt. I swear I really did.

    You, however, look perfectly beautiful! And look at you in your heels. It's amazing you're not falling over!

  5. I think you look fabulous!! I gained weight in the hips with jack but only really in the boobs and belly with Alex!!


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
