Wearing: Has it really already been a week? It feels like the longest week of my life and also the slowest. The end of a pregnancy can do that to you! I packed a few things for a hospital bag the other day and am super excited to try out Belly Bandit’s compression belt to help my hips go back down, and their Mother Tucker nursing tank.
Nursing tanks are historically my jam since I am a t-shirt lifter-upper. Always nice to have that layer underneath that keeps everything concealed.
Also bought a couple of these for the hospital and the pajamas 24/7 phase right after delivery. They’re super pretty in person and crazy cheap. Anything to feel a little bit put together, right?
Reading: I told you last week I was on a reading rampage and it still continues. Finished What Alice Forgot and LOVED it. SO much.
I’m mad that no one told me sooner to read it. It’s totally easy and entertaining but it was such catalyst for deep thinking. Also further proof that I can be easily swayed because it’s sort of a rollercoaster and with every character’s stance I was like “Yeah! You’re right! And then like Yeah! You’re right, too!” It’s basically why I can’t watch politics.
Decorating: Actually finished the nursery last night. Hey-o! Had my Interior Designer buddy Lindsay come over and make me wrap it up, I had a serious mind block about getting stuff hung. It’s always nice to have a fresh set of (formally educated) eyes. She had me pick up this pillow for the rocker which was the perfect add and such a good price for the quality.
Feeling: I had a false alarm earlier this week that totally disrupted my zen and I had to work really hard to get it back. So I spent a day painting a huge canvas for the nursery and listening to the most brooding classical I could find. It helped so much! I am now back in the relinquishing control state of mind and letting this baby do what he will when he will.
Listening: Playlist for aforementioned painting session.
Wearing: Not enough! (oops face emoji!) We have been spending the majority of our time at the beach and pools so just living the dream in bathing suits. Some cover-up situations I’ve been loving the most are these. Old Navy Chambray dress and these Madewell Denim Overall shorts.
Decorating: This bookcase amazon find is near perfection for the ever growing collection of books in my home.
Reading: Another great coffee table book find for my loyal followers (bah, does ANYONE care about my coffee table books?) No, Nicole, you are the only hoarder here.
Im starting a new category here, guys. WANTING. THIS is what I’m WANTING. This iconic lounger has been needing me, and I it for years. I have found this perfect replica, I think its time I take the plunge. Who is with me? Its so doable when its not the real deal, right?
