Second Trimester Style

Yesterday we ventured out in the snow to get some cute maternity pictures. I haven’t done an “official” maternity style post or any real maternity pictures, so this was a good chance to dress the  bump, and I especially like to try and not wear maternity clothes for as long as I can. I’ve managed to not wear maternity clothes so far this pregnancy, and am hoping I can make it to the third trimester without breaking out the stretchy jeans. I figure I’ll get sick of those clothes fast, so why get them out any faster than I have to? Loose tops and flowy skirts are my best friend, as I hit 25 weeks this week. There’s also some cute pictures Brandon got of Sawyer and I in the house earlier that day.

July- Instagram Recap

DinerBryceAnasaziPoolWinsome JonesFamBuggyWedding4

This month has been SO crazy for us, and so much fun. While Brandon has been off with the army, Sawyer and I have been in six different states, to a family reunion, a wedding, and a crazy/fun road-trip of must-see sights. We finish the month today by driving down Route 66 today and we fly home from Las Vegas to Georgia tomorrow. All of these pictures were ones I shared on instagram over the last month, if you don’t follow me already, come follow me @goodmorningloretta on instagram and say hello!

Comfortable Southern Style

Today’s outfit is one of those outfits that I would wear every single day if I thought no one would notice. In fact, I may or may not have worn it multiple times this week… doesn’t matter as long as you see different people on those days, right?

These jeggings (I never thought I’d own a pair, but had to have these) are the best. Honestly, I feel like I’m just wearing pajamas all day, and yet they are so cute that everyone else thinks I got dressed and am wearing real pants. If they came in thirty colors, I’d own them all. I got the top this week after seeing it online, I had to have it. It is just so me. Detailed, flowy, cream-colored. If you looked in my closet, you’d most of my clothing fits at least two of those words.  I just love love love the detail on the sleeves. I also love how I can wear a really simple shirt with these pants because the patterns make enough statement for the whole outfit. Perfect outfit for any event, any day.

I wore this when I ran up to Atlanta today. Luckily I made it in one of the few windows in the rain, it has been non-stop here! Our city cancelled the parade and the fireworks for Fourth of July, it was a bummer! We tried to make the best of it though, and did lots of four-wheeling in the mud, and swimming in the rain, plus we got a letter from Brandon, so that made our Fourth of July! Hope yours was the best!

Five Minute T-shirt D.I.Y.

I love v-neck t-shirts. I’d be a little embarrassed if you knew how many I have. I keep seeing those cute printed t-shirts everywhere and decided to make some of my v-necks look like those! Hope you like it! I got my t-shirts at Target for five bucks (here is the link to them), (same shirt, different colors and textures), and the paint was a few dollars too, so this entire project cost me less than $10 and I ended up with some really cute shirts!

A few tips before you start- Make sure you put cardboard in the shirt while you are painting so it doesn’t bleed through, and if you want a more vintage look, you can wash the shirt a few times and the paint will fade a little. You can even go over the paint with a fine-grain sandpaper to rough it up a little. Don’t forget to follow me on instagram and share your shirts you make!

Perfect Southern Style

The perfect outfit. That one that you wear out and you feel amazing. That is what this outfit is for me. This skirt is perfect. It’s full, girlie, and a little vintage looking. I feel like I could wear this out shopping, to the farmer’s market, to church, anywhere. Even though the skirt is full, it’s surprisingly lightweight and comfortable and it is the perfect length. I don’t even know what else to say, I love it so much. It’s the perfect outfit for me! Girlie, a little proper, but casual too, and an outfit for a true Southerner.

Sorry for posting so many pictures but, like I said, I LOVE this skirt. It is that perfect skirt that you spend a thousand years looking for, and then when you find it you want to buy four of so you always have another if one gets worn out. I don’t think I will ever fall out of love with this skirt.
