outfit of the day(bird): barefoot and pregnant





dress/tunic~ b. (a resale shop)
leggings~ Simply Vera, Kohls
headband~ F21
tank~ Heartbreaker

yes, i am barefoot in these photos. that is because i am almost always barefoot these days. and that is because none of my dang shoes fit me anymore. i have one pair of flip flops that i can comfortably wear when i run errands or go to the park with mimi or have to be anywhere in public. but when i am home, i am officially barefoot and pregnant. on wednesday, i went and got myself a fancy pedicure and, for some reason, decided to have my nails painted a bright, neon orange. you know, just to draw more attention to my giant, flintstone-like feet. smart move, nora bird. smart move. but it is only mere days until i have this baby boy (today would be just fine with me! could someone let him know, please??!) and then these feet had better shrink back down to a size six...or i will be one sad lady with a closet overflowing with shoes that don't fit! a terrifying thought!

happy friday, everyone. i hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

xoxo, nora bird

  2. This has to be the perfect maternity outfit. Comfortable, practical, but still feminine and floaty, I love it!

    Tell baby boy that if he pops out before midnight I'll arrange to send him a special pressie, (if it's okay with Mama of course)we August 10'ers have to stick together after all. ;-)

  4. I love this tunic - such a pretty, soft color! And hey, if you're gonna have Flinstone feet you might as well go all out and paint your toes orange.

    Hope that boy comes out soon!! Maybe Monday we will have some exciting news... ;)

  5. I love that tunic and your orange toes!! And you're totally going to have him while I'm up north and I'm going to miss it. Because I just have this feeling! But coming home and hearing he's here would be quite awesome too! Fingers crossed!

  13. I've been scared with each of my pregnancies that my feet won't shrink back too! :) You look fantastic and I hope it all goes well for you.

  19. Ah, what a lovely floaty, light top, so pretty! You really have made pregnancy stylish Nora! I am ever impressed!
    I totally do the barefeet thing all the time at home! Right from childhood, my Mum would despair of me when it was winter as I would be darting around in barefeet when it was freeeeezing!
    Wow, you're sooooo close to giving birth! Good luck x

  20. That's why - the feet don't fit into the shoes at the last points, LOL. Sorry don't mean to laugh at your situation or at you. I've been there, done that 2 times. You look like you are healthy and in good shape. Best to you.

  21. Despite its simplicity, this is a really cute outfit. I love how it flows. And we're wearing the same color polish on our toes!

  22. That top is lovely and I love that you're barefoot. Going barefoot is my favorite in the summer :)

  23. You make a lovely barefoot, pregnant lady. Love that tunic! ;) I had so many friends who told me my feet would get bigger and stay bigger, but while I did indeed gain about a size during my last couple of months (I only owned one pair of shoes I could wear aside from rubber flip flops - silver Isaac Mizrahi sandals from Target) my feet did indeed return to their usual tiny selves. Thank heaven. ;) I have quite the shoe collection and having to re-buy them all would have been a pain! ;)

    I have a giveaway going on - come check it out!

  27. I love your orange toes-ies!!! I wish I had gotten my toes done when I had my son... I'm pretty sure my feet REALLY did look like flintstone feet! I think you wear pregnancy very well!

  28. isn't it tough being pregnant during the summer! don't worry, your feet will go back. mine always did. i think the heat just makes them swell even more. you look awesome in this adorable tunic. i can't wait to hear you've had the baby!!! yay!

  29. i think the bright orange was a good choice, after all, if you have to be barefoot, might as well have a bold peddi to make up for lace of cute footwear.
