Above: Persifor Winpenny dress on Tobago (also in Tobago, the Kilpatrick dress), Hermes Evelyne (spectacular husband's post baby gift to me....which arrived early, though we are still waiting on baby!), Super Ciccio glasses, J Crew sandals (old!), this season's pick, necklace, made by my mother!
I'm finally far enough in my pregnancy to wear this fabulous Persifor Winpenny dress, in the fantastically tropical Tobago print. I bought this gorgeous number way back in September of last year, in a size large, anticipating it would be perfect for late pregnancy, summertime, heat wave, needs.
I was correct in my assessment. It is actually miraculously cool and doesn't wrinkle. I have the damnedest time with dresses always wrinkling around the bump when I sit. Nary a problem to be found with this fabric. I find myself wishing I got the medium, but I love this print so much that I'll probably have it taken in post pregnancy (my plan of action for favorite maternity wardrobe pieces). Since I rarely bought 'maternity' clothes, just went a size or two up, a few nips and tucks in the larger sized articles will make for even more wear once I have shed the baby weight.
I am eager to get active though, I confess I have no idea if I'll be able to find the time, or the motivation once I have a bundle of joy pulling at me to stay home. I have been eagerly watching the bru-ha-ha, and subsequent call to boycott, OK's cover story of Kate Middleton's plan to shed the baby weight. Not even a week home and they were speculating over her pounds lost. Give the girl a break! And a week with her new baby! You just know Kim K is in hiding, chained to Tracy Anderson, subsisting on carrots, waiting for her big post baby-body reveal. How has the woman not gone outside?! Though I can't blame her for wanting to wow, after the press scrutiny she endured.
My new post baby-body role model? The wonderfully curvy, and frank Kristen Bell, who is slated to appear on the cover of Redbook soon, 15 lbs of baby weight to shed and everything. Someone's gotta keep it real. Hallelujah.
