Style me please!

Lets play a fun little game called "Dress Me!" As I head into the second half of my pregnancy, I find it impossible to like what I see in the mirror. I want to pick up a few summer things this week, to help me feel more comfortable in my skin...and I will test drive my new outfits on all of you!!! A simple thumbs up, thumbs down, or any other advice is welcomed!!
This afternoon, I went to a local maternity boutique and this outfit made the cut.  Cropped leggings (with lots of room in the tummy and touchee) and a white tee with rouching (both are very comfy).  The tee is a bit scandalous for me, but the lady at the store says 'EVERYONE IS SHOWING THEIR BELLY...'


ps...I am trying to grow my pixie from last summer out.  I have bob with bangs now.  The bob should quickly zip down to my shoulders over the summer - one benefit from all these baby hormones!
pss....even my wrists look fat
psss...If I wasn't pregs I would be wearing havianas, cut off shorts, and tank tops.  That style doesn't translate well with a bump.  Actually, its not much of a style at all...  

Update: Second Top....same leggins  ... its light grey and breezy ...its a little bit pajama styles, I know...but I am confident I will have room to grow in it.  I was MASSIVE last time.
 more pssss's...this is the BEFORE

  1. I gained a lot of weight during pregnancy (water retention) so I wore a lot of long, empire waist dresses. This is something I love wearing on regular basis anyway, so it was an easy go-to outfit.

  4. You look great! I agree that a little colour helps though. The shapes you're choosing are perfect for your overall body right now.

    Thank God leggings have come back in style!
