This might be my LAST outfit post with the bump!

Well, I have reached my very LAST week of pregnancy, wow that is so surreal to even think.
The last week.
The last 7 days!
I really can’t believe it, it has gone so fast and this whole experience has been nothing short of incredible. Each day has brought so much joy knowing that we are going to have a daughter. Knowing that she is growing safely inside of me, it’s such a blessing. I can’t imagine what it will be like to finally meet her. To have her look up at me, to see her, finally! To know who has been in my tummy these past 10 months. She has been so good to me. Luckily I didn’t have morning sickness, my only experience was tiredness in the first and last trimesters. I am so thankful for that. Now as I sit here writing this, I can’t help but wonder what the next 7 days will bring. How will this experience happen for me. What will it be like? The unknown is sometimes the hardest thing but at the same time it is just part of life, the surprises. For all I know I could go later than my due date, I hope not because we are so excited to meet her!
We are so happy knowing that soon enough we will be a family and have our little girl here with us. I have to admit it will be weird not having this baby belly anymore. Not feeling her move and kick around. As uncomfortable as I am, and the time it takes me to even turn over in bed at night, I will say that I’ll miss it. It really is a miracle and it’s something that I have enjoyed so much.
I also want to give a big thank you to my hubby. He has been so incredible through this whole experience. He is supportive, encouraging, appreciative and all around my biggest fan. He tells me how beautiful I am and how pretty I look. He asks me how I slept every single morning. He gives me head massages almost every night, he massages my back when I can’t sleep.
He tells me everything will be OK and the labor will be just fine, that he’ll be right by my side for every single moment and every step of the way. It reassures me and makes me so happy, makes me feel safe…
But the best thing of all is he thanks for me carrying our baby girl.
It’s all I could ask for. Thank you B, thank you for being by my side and being my everything.
Now that I have gotten some of those last pregnancy thoughts out, I wanted to do one more outfit post in case this is my last with the bump. Kinda sad to think so I had to make sure I got another bump post in!
Let me start by saying, I LOVE Nordstrom Rack! I find some of my absolute favorite items there! This dress caught my eye and I loved it even more once I put it on. I love the bright, vibrant pattern and the style was perfect. I think it will still be quite cute once the baby bump is gone so it was a must purchase item!
I paired this dress with these cute wedges from LULU’s. They are the perfect height and color that go with almost anything.

Shoes: Lulu's
Bag: H&M
Necklace: Francesca's
Watch: Micahel Kors
Sunglasses: Ray Ban

2 Days - 2 Looks! The Belted Bump!

Here is my second item from The Belted Bump! How cute is the Quinn Chain Maternity belt?! I am loving the coral/pink color for summer oh, and this belt does come in mint as well so keep that in mind! I love how the belt is adjustable for the belly and will fit all throughout your stages with the growing bump.
I was also thinking about how these belts would be great for a gender reveal or a cute accessory for the mama-to-be to wear at her shower. They add so much to any outfit and bring the eye right to your belly.
Again The Belted Bump is offering 15% off to my readers with the promo code 15OFFBUMP. All you have to do is "like" The Belted Bump on Facebook and follow along on instagram @thebeltedbump! Take a look around the website at all the cute belts to accessorize your growing bump!
Thank you so much for visiting and I hope to post a couple more maternity outfits before I have this little girl. I'm down to 3 weeks, can you believe it!?
Any last minute advice from all you mammas?

2 Days - 2 Looks! The Belted Bump!

Today I am so excited to be featuring these fantastic maternity belts! A friend of mine just launched The Belted Bump which features these cute belts to style your bump! I am doing a two-day feature where you will see two different belts styled on this bump of mine. These simple yet stunning belts add so much to a plain black dress and I love that they are the perfect easy accessory to enhance the bump and enhance your style!
In my opinion, the hardest thing about dressing stylish yet still comfortable when you are this far along in your pregnancy is variety. I find myself going back to the same 5-10 items I have in my maternity wardrobe and trying to mix them around or incorporate cute jackets, scarves, belts, etc. The fact that I can turn to my fav 5 but just accessorize them with these cute belts is so nice! I love love love this teal belt with the rhinestones, teal is one of my favorite colors right now and with the red lip, I thought it was perfect for this simple black maternity maxi!
The Belted Bump is offering 15% off to my readers with the promo code 15OFFBUMP. All you have to do is "like" The Belted Bump on Facebook and follow along on instagram @thebeltedbump! Take a look around her website at all the cute belts to accessorize your growing bump!
