That didn't work at all.

I'm trying to get myself really excited about this season, because really, I LOVE the summertime. But I mostly love the summer because it means outdoor beer festivals and jet skiing on the lake and not changing out of my bathing suit for days at a time.

But this year, there is no beer. And there is no jet skiing. And as I have yet to find a maternity bathing suit that I actually like, well...there's not much of that, either. At least, there won't be once the ruching gives out on my Land's End non-maternity swimsuit, anyway.

(Please join me in a silent prayer to the powers that be at Land's End: For the good of my sanity, just let that suit last me until my vacation is over in September. That's all I need. Please. Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease.)

And, you know, winter will be bringing a baby with it this year, so I'm kind of in a hurry to get to that part of things, too.

Only six more months to go!

(Haaaaa. ONLY six months. That's, like, forever in baby-waiting years...)

Dress: Motherhood Maternity (also a Brigid-era purchase)
Cardigan: Banana Republic (outlet)
Shoes: Nine West
Belt: Target


  1. Ha, it's so funny. When you're pregnant, time seems to slow down to the slowest crawl. Then when you're not pregnant, it speeds back up to warp speed. lol When I was pregnant, I never did the whole maternity swimsuit thing, I just wore my bikini and proudly bared my ginormous belly for the world to see. Ha. Most of them ran screaming, but whatevs. =)

  2. Swimsuit season is the worst.. even when you're not pregnant! I have a cut suit this year, but I swear every time I put it on I gain 10 lbs. Have you checked LL Bean? They might have a decent suit! I have a $10 off coupon code if you see any you like. :)

  3. well, look at you all va-va-voom and cute! love the addition of the green cardi to brighten up the outfit! guess you certainly will be having a different kind of summer this year!! i didn't have the guts to rock a suit when i was bulging, but looking back, i wish i did! it's the only time you really can let it all hang out...without having to suck in that tummy!
