  2. It's a cute look - if it ain't broke, don't fix it! :)
    The night before my due date with my first, I went out for wings and ordered a half pound with two sauces mixed together - hot and honey-garlic. My contractions started before I even left the table, and by 2am on my due date I was in active labour - and I named my baby Norah. I think it's a sign - you should get some some hot wings with those spuds. :) Good luck!!

  22. Nora, I love this ensemble. I am definately going to stick a balloon under my maxi dress and layer a striped shirt over it. No, seriously, I love this look and I am going to try it with my striped maxi. I like to be comfortable no matter what. Also, Megan I am under Suitcase vignettes for instagram and I have a suitcase vignettes facebook page too. I,for the life of me, do not know how to connect them to my blog...maybe someone will help me. have a great weekend and fun at your reunion. dawn xo
