It’s really no secret that I’m not a huge fashionista. And since I’ve submerged myself in my bubble of maternity wear the last 6 months, I haven’t even allowed myself to glance at all the cute new styles, which makes me very sad because fall fashion is where it’s at for me. I LOVE ME SOME SWEATERS AND SCARVES IN JEWEL TONES.
But there’s a light at the tunnel, yo. This kid exits in 5ish weeks.
So when my husband whined at me- AGAIN- that he doesn’t know what to get me for Christmas, instead of rolling my eyes and lecturing him all about the glorious Sephora and DKNY Cozy Wrap– AGAIN- I took it upon myself to set up a Wishpot.com account. I will fill it with a plethora of sparkly, pretty, superfluous, superficial, mostly non-practical items for him to choose from. Because left to his own devices, I will end up with another panini grill. <<What? It’s practical.
I would also like to a few fashion-y things, like maybe a new scarf because a cold neck is a sad neck. And maybe some *gasp* leggings and tunics (breastfeeding friendly and tummy pouch concealing, of course). And shoes. I need new winter shoes.
But what shoes? I don’t really anticipate wearing anything with much of a heel as I balance a newborn on my hip while chasing a toddler. My flats are all a little thin and chilly, though. Everything I find that’s a compromise of the two looks a lot like an Ugg, and well, I just don’t think I can go there. I already caved to the Crocs this year, people (for the toddler… only for the toddler!). I’m trying to maintain a shred of dignity in the eyes of my sister and friends.
I would love suggestions. Also, if you have any suggestions for tops that make great, warm, breastfeeding friendly transition pieces, that would be spectacular. Of course, this could all be for naught. My husband could look past all my impractical and stylish requests and get me some steel toe boots and coveralls from his favorite store- Lowes.
And tell me, what is on your Christmas list? Now what do you think your significant other will get you?
Kendall is 2.5 and I’m 35.5 weeks pregnant… and the size of a house. The stretchmarks are out of control. There are NEW ones. Apparently I didn’t produce enough the first time around to accommodate the canon ball growing inside me now.
