I love this Modcloth dress! It's very summery and picnic-y and perfect for the weather lately, although I really don't think I'll be able to fit into it much longer (it has a sewn-in waist, and I think I'll be limited to stretchy/empire dresses pretty soon). I know I call these little belly shot posts Pregnancy Style, but I haven't really bothered to get too creative with outfits yet since I can still fit into normal clothes-- the end of the summer is when things are going to get interesting. I really don't want to invest in maternity clothes if I can help it (besides leggings! I need maternity leggings..) so hopefully I'll be able to thrift creatively later.
And now: nursery ideas! This little boy is going to have one stylish room (he'll appreciate it at some point). This is going to be the curtain fabric. Ahhh! I love it.
And these are some of the prints I've ordered:

Our baby's name is not Henry, that's just the example. Although I do know a Henry-baby and he's pretty delightful.
Children's books are so pretty and it's a shame not to display the covers, so I've been pretty obsessed with the idea of forward-facing bookshelves. I've seen so many examples on Pinterest using the Ikea spice racks as a cheap solution, but of course they were all sold out when we visited, so I improvised and found the Ribba picture ledge:
It's pricier than the spice racks ($10 each instead of $4) but buying six was comparable to buying another bookcase, which I didn't want to do, and still cheaper/easier than having Jeremy make them. I ordered lots of books yesterday (I have tons that were mine as a kid and that I've thrifted over the years, but bought some classics and newer books that we had to have. Like Olivia! And The Story of Ferdinand!). I can't wait to set up everything.
