I’m so excited to be up and away to Florida today. The snow and ice as of late has really gotten under my skin, and this baby girl and I are both in major need of some Vitamin D. I’m hoping she’s just like her mama, and loves the sun and warm weather. And although I’m majorly craving a margarita (Maybe they’ll make me a virgin?), I’m just excited for some alone time with my husband, and to put my toes in the sand.
We’re both very much looking forward to trying Shore Diner, hopefully relaxing with a yoga class together, and taking long walks on the beach.
What I’m most nervous about is stepping into a bathing suit for the first time since being pregnant. Everyone tells me it’s going to be “soooo cute” but when it’s your own body that is changing rapidly in a new way, it’s a little scary. I haven’t really “popped” yet, so it just looks like I ate a few too many burritos! I think once I look actually pregnant, I’ll be more excited to wear tighter clothing, and will feel more confident.
I am packing mostly one-pieces, because I’m not sure I’ll be brave enough yet to show the belly in a bikini. I’m bringing this beautiful off-shoulder striped suit and this pretty turquoise patterned one with a high neck that I just love. I tried them both on yesterday and didn’t feel too bad! If you’re looking for a more affordable high-neck suit, this one is just gorgeous, and under $100.
So what else is in my monogrammed canvas travel bag? Lots of dresses that can fit over my bump. Yesterday, Vineyard Vines sent over this cute striped maxi dress and blue patterned jumpsuit (I sized up). Side bar, I also got this hoodie that’s perfect for plane travel. I love the stripes inside the hood!
I’m bringing two cover ups, this flutter-sleeved Persifor number (you know they’re my favorite dress brand!) and this colorful pom cover up that I mentioned last week. This striped one didn’t come in time but it’s under $100 and so so cute.
Yesterday I tried on some of my shorts and only one pair fit so will be bringing those to pair with this striped off shoulder top.
If you’re wondering about the hat in the photo, I’m so excited to announce that it’s a design I created in collaboration with Hat Attack! It will be live on their site on March 1st, so stay tuned for more details.
