I’ve gotta address the elephant in the blog… (and no, I’m not referring to myself as an elephant). It was like 98 degrees outside when I was wearing this outfit. Yet, I’m wearing a cardigan and a scarf. You’d think that would be totally counter intuitive, and you’d be correct.

You see, the thing is, when you’re this pregnant (i.e. pushing 38 weeks pregnant) everything just feels… uncomfortable. So, you look to the things that make you feel, well, comfortable. And the truth is, I feel uncomfortable in just a sleeveless dress right now. Because if I’m just getting my insecurities out on the table, I feel like my arms look huge, my neck looks huge, and I feel like I just look huge. However, I throw on my favorite cardigan over my dress and toss on my new favorite scarf from World Market and I suddenly feel like a million pregnant bucks.

Seriously.

Granted, the scarf is a light material so it’s not like some wool winter scarf or anything, but you get where I’m going, right?

It’s just one of those things that’s totally a mental game… and as long as I can play the mental game with myself and trick myself into feeling like a million pregnant bucks, then I can continue to walk around strutting my pregnant stuff for a little while longer.

Right? Right. Trust me, this all makes sense in my head.

I also gotta give a quick daps to this dainty arrow bracelet from StyleLately.com. It’s pretty much adorable and I pretty much love it and have pretty much worn it every day since I got it. It’s just so dang cute. It doesn’t even need other bracelet friends.

Anywho.

On a side note, and I will definitely update y’all later, but for those who pray, I covet your prayers this morning. I’m going in to the hospital for a little procedure this morning and I’m just a wee nervous about it. Everything is okay… the baby is just not exactly in a position the baby should be right now, so they’re gonna try and move the little gymnast. Anyway, I’ll share more later, but just wanted to give you an FYI.
