How I wore it: krazy klown

What up, everyone? I would do my weekly apology for not writing more often, but, let's face it, we're all over it. I have exactly one month before my due date. The fact that I'm actually wearing anything other than pajamas is a minor miracle with how motivated I feel.

Thank GOODNESS that it's the last week of classes before winter break (and before my three-month maternity leave! Thank the heavens for private school two-week-long vacations in winter and spring). The kids are not so much motivated and the teachers are desperately trying to keep it together by pretending that we're totally motivated. But there's a chance that I might have investigated whether or not my 'Finding Nemo' DVD can be played in Spanish (it can! That's two classes taken care of!)...

I've been repeating a hell of amount of outfits recently, but today I inadvertently came upon an outfit combination that I actually kind of like. I also combined colors like a boss. Or a crazy person. You decide:

For some reason, this magenta-striped t-shirt seemed to call for my purple cardigan. Which in turned cried out for my amazing technicolor dream scarf. Dudes. Colors AND patterns mixed in the same outfit? I'm like a real fashion blogger! 

(I looked for my multicolored headband, but I couldn't find it. That would've taken this outfit up to an eleven.)

Guys, it's getting to the final countdown (good luck getting that song out of your head now. Just think of Will Arnett and thank me later) and I'm totally ready for it. I feel as if every time I go to my OB/GYN I get something else I have to freak out about (that always turns out to be a false alarm). Thankfully, both the baby and I are totally healthy. But I'm tired, slow, sometimes swollen, and big. Real big. The scale is at a number that it has never been at before, ever. And I know it's so shallow to be concerned about my baby weight, but I'm keeping it real. My other concern is that I'll never get into shape again. I miss running so much, especially with this relatively mild winter, but I just can't imagine building that stamina again. (Again, I know that everything will be fine and these are pretty obnoxious first world problems. Again, trying to keep it honest.)

Also, on another frivolous note? I'm growing out the hair, as you know... any tips? I'm all fluffy and unkempt. Any cute hair accessories you could recommend, people who have grown out their hair? I clearly have become more shallow since 2007, when I last grew it out. I have headbands, clips, and grips. Let's do this.

  1. omg, I can't believe I've been following your blog for like 9 months now! (I came in a bit before you became baby-fied) Time flies when you get to look at amazing outfits (and this one doesn't fail, the scarf is amazing) As for your hair, I heard Goody spin pins are great for once you have it long enough to pull back (I guess that's more practical) I love fun color headbands for keeping it back off my face, though. I bought a whole pack at Walgreens for like $4
