I still can’t believe it is already November. And let me tell you – it is cold as shit in Baltimore. We didn’t get much “Fall” weather. I feel like it went from Summer to Winter. I don’t like this (especially since Fall is my favorite time of year BECAUSE of the perfect temperatures).

Dress: Gap Maternity. This is a great and very comfortable spandex/cotton wrap dress. Unfortunately it is short sleeved so it doesn’t make for a good winter dress.
Sweater: Gap. Can you tell I love this sweater? I wear it all the frickin’ time. Gray is one of my favorite clothing and accessory colors.
Shoes: Target – Merona.

Top: Old Navy Maternity. I also purchased this in a greige color. I love it. It is such a great casual top that you can dress up with a simple scarf and belt. It is perfect with leggings or any slim fit pant.
Pants: Old Navy (held together with a Belly Band).
Shoes: Target – Merona.
Apparently I was the walking advertisement for low-priced fashion today.
I also realized today that I need to bite the bullet and buy a maternity winter coat. I have a ton of coats but I try to buy coats that aren’t HUGE on me. Well this poses a problem now…
How unfortunate. I found a great maternity coat on a fab sale through Oldnavy.com but didn’t act quick enough and they sold out of my size. Yarg! I don’t want to spend a ton of a maternity coat since I’ll only wear it through THIS season… any ideas?
Fun / Weird Pregnancy Stuff: My office building had a fire drill yesterday. Apparently – I am now on the “handicap” list meaning that in the case of an actual fire, I’m supposed to wait for assistance from the fire department in the stairwell. The problem? I sit on the 10th floor. If the building is burning, I am booking down those stairs. I don’t think pregnancy = handicap. I felt like an asshole standing in the stairwell as everyone zipped by me. The other handicappers included one elderly woman (that should have retired YEARS ago) and 2 overweight women with knee problems. Actually – the elderly woman was also overweight. They kept insisting that I sit down but I wanted to say, “no really – I think it is YOU that needs to sit. I am fine” especially considering that I’m still
RUNNING jogging three times a week over 3 miles.
I will also say that being pregnant makes small talk with people much easier. I hate small talk and if I don’t know someone, I have no idea what to chat about outside of the weather. Yes, I’m one of those people. So now that I’m pregnant – it is so much easier. Everyone asks the same questions, “When are you due?” “Do you know what you’re having?” “Is this your first?” So easy.
