Bye, Bye, Baby Bump

What do you do when you own two x-large tank tops that you will never wear? You cut them up and turn them into a maternity skirt, of course! From what I had seen, the selection of maternity pencil skirts in stores was pretty slim. Making one myself seemed like a reasonable, if somewhat daunting, solution. Luckily no fingers were sewn and no tears were shed over this particular project! Although there may have been some mumbled curses here and there...

I think this will be my last maternity post, you guys! Our little girl hasn't decided to come on her own yet so it's looking like I'll be induced this weekend! I don't want to keep posting pictures of my baby bump when I've already had the baby, so consider this my final maternity style post (for this pregnancy anyway.) While I'm recuperating and letting my body readjust, I probably won't be posting about my outfits but I'm not planning on completely disappearing! Keep checking the blog for some hubby and toddler outfit posts, beauty tutorials, and of course, newborn posts!
