tuesday remix: sister style

i am now officially in the third trimester of this pregnancy. (i don't know why i said officially. you can't unofficially be in the third trimester. you just are or you aren't. also, why didn't i just go back and delete 'officially' instead of writing this whole damn aside? we will never know. the brain of nora is a silly and complicated thing). the home stretch! i am very excited to meet my little man pretty soon! although, i read today that most women gain 11 pounds in the third trimester. ugh. i am not excited about that. i already feel huge and just knowing i am going to get even huger does not make me all that thrilled. but i want the little guy to grow big and strong before he comes into the world, so for his sake i will happily take on a few more pounds. pass the ice cream! on a cute note, mimi has taken to lifting up my shirt so she can see my belly and then giving her brother a big hug and kiss. it is just the sweetest thing ever (except when she decides to do it in public which is slightly embarrassing for me, flashing everyone my big tummy). i am so excited to see her become the amazing big sister that i know she will be!

for this week's remix i chose this pretty, sheer dress (which is now a tunic on me) that i bought a few months ago at b. (a resale shop). i really love this dress and i am excited it is warm enough to wear it now without covering it up with a cardigan or jacket. let us know what you think!

  7. Love the purple and the dress. It is lovely as a tunic. Megan, I love the vintage feel of the dress with the slip under it.


  8. nice idea and nice outfits!!

  9. aww mimi kissing her bro while he's in the womb, & flashing mommy's tummy. ;) i like the sheer dress, & how you both wore it, in equally wonderful, ways. what did megan bird wear under the slip for the sheerness to NOT be a problem? i have sheer issues with some of my clothes. helpful hints would be much appreciated. claire's mom made some terrific purple pants.

  10. Nora, you look so pretty in purples! Megan, I love how you paired the dress with the mint shoes.

    That is very sweet that Mimi is "kissing" her brother!

  12. That is such a pretty dress, I love it! It looks great onyou both (and completely different). You can barely tell Nora has a baby bump underneath!!

  13. Girls, you both look fantastic in this tunic / dress! I love your shoes! Both pairs: D

  20. I love seeing how the tunic changes back to a dress--so lovely on both of you! Also the contrast between pairing it with a bright (the pants) and a pastel (the shoes)--I can't decide which I like best.

    Hang in there, mama--almost done!

  21. I love that lavender color! So cute to see it as a long shirt vs a dress! Love both ways! :)

    I don't know if you have done this, but I would love to see how many ways you two can dress up a white t-shirt and jeans! xo! :)

  22. I love the beginning of this post! Ha ha! In the home stretch! You can do it! I just had my 2nd baby in October and I remember that feeling...



  23. You both look lovely! Especially loving the purple jeans from the first look Nora :)
