The cat's out of the bag, folks. Well for those the algorithm is affecting at least. I announced my pregnancy on Thanksgiving in this post, and of course, like clockwork, IG only showed it to a very select few. So when I posted this image, it was a bit of shock that so many more people congratulated me as this wasn't even the announcement post. Either way, yes if you are reading this and not following along on IG -- I'm pregnant! It's all very exciting and very new, one thing is for certain -- I'm unclear on the fashion rules here. I'm trying each day to make my normal clothes work for me still, as I refuse to buy maternity clothes, but the problem therein lies that I obviously can't fit my belly into my old size small clothing. 

So what's a (pregnant) girl to do? Size up, wear dresses, skirts with a zipper (you can leave half up, depending on your trimester), overalls, rompers, etc -- all tricks I swear by. If I do bite the bullet and buy a new little something I make sure it's something I can make use of post-baby.

This set I'm wearing above is most definitely something I've been getting lots of use of, being very holiday appropriate as well as forgiving for those hidden unzippered zippers. The tweed set is a lovely gift from the very chic Apricoss team. It's a bit early 90's glamour done modern in the sweetest Chanel pink shade. I'm obsessed with the coat, I've worn it many, many times and know it's a staple I'll continue to rock out and about, perhaps with baby on hip, and for all those wondering, yes said zipper isn't fully zipped up. ;)

This pearl encrusted sweater is a DREAM, it's a cozy cashmere piece from Minnie Rose, I've been wearing this one for the last few weeks and it's the perfect holiday addition to my wardrobe and my growing bump. I ordered it in a large to accommodate the extra room and I like the fit a bit baggier. The team at Minnie Rose has graciously offered a 20% discount for all my readers if you use the code ATV20 at checkout.
