outfit of the day(bird): awkward moments





dress~ Old Navy
shirt~ Heartbreaker
necklace~ Petit Oiseau
flip flops~ Target

this is a very awkward outfit to wear to an ultrasound. trust me, i know from experience. yesterday, while i was getting dressed and ready for my ultrasound appointment, all i was thinking about was wearing something comfortable, which is really my only requirement for an outfit these days. and this dress is extremely comfy! perfect, right? not so much. i clearly wasn't thinking about how i would have to awkwardly and gracelessly hike this dress up to my chin (while giggling uncomfortably) in order for the technician to actually perform the ultrasound. luckily, the technician was very nice and understanding. i am sure she has seen it all!

i hope you all have a happy (and awkward moment-free) thursday!

xoxo, nora bird

  1. HA!!! Thats hilarious! Im sure lots of people do it though. Something like that should have been in the movie What to Expect When youre Expecting lol.

    Love the dress. Maxis really are the most comfy :)

  2. I never wore the appropriate outfit for any of my ultrasounds. I had so many, you'd think I'd remember at some point - but nope. At least your outfit is super cute:)

  8. He he, I guess that would be sort of awkward! It looks so cute and comfy though, so hopefully it was worth it! I love the tee layered over it! Getting excited for your baby boy to arrive! :)

  9. Hahaha! I am sure your moment of realization that you would hike your dress up on the exam table was one of embarassment and hilarity. Honestly. I would probably laugh so hard at myself. I hope your Thursday is less awkward!

  21. i love that outfit. since i only wear dresses i've had to strategize my outfits for all my appointments! skirts were helpful in the beginning, but i haven't been able to fit into one for a while now!

    you are so cute nora!! xoxoxo

  23. lol. That is hilarious. I don't think I would have thought about it either. But, at least you look great.

    Also, every time I see your hair I want to cut mine off. It's so fabulously fabulous.

  24. LOL oh dear! Well as any mother knows, it can get worse. And usually does. But you are far from caring about what others think at that point. On the plus side, you look like a gorgeous mommy indeed in this pretty black maxi!

  25. I would never have thought of that either! You look gorgeous, I hope I look this good if/when I'm pregnant!

  26. I guess it's true when they say motherhood isn't a job, it's an adventure. :)

  27. Oh man, that would be embarrassing! How funny. I wouldn't have thought about that either. I like this maxi on you though. The knotted top is great with it!

  28. Nora, I love how you layer clothing so effortlessly. This outfit looks so pretty on you, golden yellow is a great color for you as well. It must be so nice to have an entire pregnancy journal while looking so fly all the time. How do you do it? I was jumping for joy when I opened the package that came in the mail today....it was on my body within 30 seconds flat, my husband was like, wth are you doing? I am absolutely thrilled. I hope your reaction to mine is just as exciting. I better hurry and mail it. A huge heartfelt thank you to you and Megan, you know me so well. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  31. Hahah as soon as you said ultrasound wearing this dress all I could think was uh oh that's a lot of exposure! At least it was a female technician! Adorable outfit- that mustard wrap is so pretty on you.

    1. great outfit, love the tiny top over the long maxi

    2. you are the most stylish pregnant lady I've ever seen. right up there with celebs & my sis! I worked with a couple of pregnant ladies this year and by the 6th month one was wearing sweats and lulu lemons to work, the other loose tees & khakis. ha ha i think you should start a mini blog or something on being stylish while pregnant. cuz you are!
