Necessary Shopping

Happy Monday everyone! It is a gorgeous day here in Pensacola and I am going to try my hardest to spend at least a few hours outside of my house today. I have a really bad habit of staying in all day unless I force myself to leave the house. And even then, it is usually to go to another indoor facility (i.e. mostly Target). So as you can imagine, I am as white as a ghost and craving some Vitamin D. I can always go for a nice, long walk around the block for today but maybe a trip to the beach is in the cards soon. I am craving some sand in my toes, a dunk in the ocean with an ice cold, frosty marga...scratch that...bottle of water in my hand. You know you are expecting when your beach cooler has more water in it then the usual grouping of beer and ready made alcoholic fruity drinks.

But even worse, since now I am in the pregnant lady category of stores, I have nothing to wear to said beach. I am 15 weeks in and my body has already changed so much! My stomach has turned into a baby bump, a little one, but it's there. And my boobs. Oh good lord my boobs have already decided to jump up a cup size and all of my old bathing suit tops look like a beach side peep show waiting to happen. Thankfully the gain has avoided my butt for now. If there is one body part I do not need to grow it is that one! You know the term badonkadonk? Yep, that's me :)  

So the search is on for a new suit that will cover, support, not cut off circulation, and definitely not look like I found it in a grandma's drawer circa 1992. You know, "complete with matching long skirt and wide brimmed hat in neon green or pink!" Haha. Sexy thoughts I know. So far I have found a few that I like, some maternity, some non but all cute.

The first is from A Pea in the Pod and I like the ruffle to take some attention away from the soon to be watermelon sized bump. Plus it's not black, which is my go to color for just about everything :) 

Two and Three are both JoJo Maman Bebe. I usually stay away from patterns, especially horizontal stripes, but I figure this is the one time I can wear it and really get away with it. And I love me some polka dots!

The fourth has an adorable name to go with the ruffles. Tutti-Fruti by Gottex. I love the 40s style with straps and it comes in black, naturally. 

Decisions, decisions. So now I am stuck. I have to decide which one I want to grow into over the summer and I cannot make up my mind. Simple and classic or fun and colorful. Help! Should I venture out of my comfort zone or stick to the old standbys?

  1. I love the navy and white stripes! I'm a sucker for anything Nautical and this is the one time where horizontal stripes will actually be flattering! haha
