february pin-spired

pinspired On Monday I took these photos for today’s Pin-spired. Little did I know that I would go into labor that night and these would become my last pregnancy pictures! I normally take my outfit photos outside, but wild negative temperatures called for the use of my full length mirror :)

Linking up with Mel, Shay, and Sheaffer for February Pin-spired.

Pin-spiration #1:

Graphic tee with a cargo jacket.

Jacket: LL Bean Kennebec Cargo Jacket in “Raisin Brown”"
Shirt: Liz Lange for Target (last fall) Love Liz Lange maternity clothes.
Skinny jeans: Motherhood Maternity Secret Fit Belly
Boots: MIA Heritage Knee High Boot

My in-laws bought me this pretty jacket for Christmas, and it is going to become a staple in my closet this spring!

40 weeks minus 1 day

Pin-spiration #2:

I love how the trendy Aztec sweater looks with red pants.

Sweater: “36 Point 5”
Rib-knit tank: Old Navy
Maternity Colored Twill Pants: JCPenney in “Crimson”
Shoes: Crocs

Pin-spiration #3

One Little Momma –I wanted to copy the cute way that she draped her plaid scarf.

Shirt: Liz Lange for Target Long-Sleeve Basic Tee
Rib-knit tank: Old Navy
Scarf: Target (old)
Skinny jeans: Motherhood Maternity Secret Fit Belly
Boots: MIA Heritage Knee High Boot

I think my best advice for maternity fashion is to invest in a lot of basics—long tanks, a good pair of jeans, and comfortable colored cotton shirts.

And in case you missed my announcement:

   Baby Ephraim Luke arrived on Tuesday!! So in love with our second little boy.

For those of you who are new, I put some of the other maternity outfits I posted in the past few months on a Pinterest board:
