Gingham shirt: Old Navy; Red shirt/pants/necklace: F21; Leopard shoes: Target

Here's a little pregnancy flashback.  Janssen had inspired me with this adorable board.  I loved the gingham paired with the leopard and the bright colors, but I decided to invert it a little since it was still too hot for a cardigan.

I ended up loving the look of the open button-down; it has the same streamlining and lengthening effect of a long cardi or vest, but with a little less bulk.  I also summerized it a little more with some brighter tones and a more casual necklace and loved how it turned out.  So thanks, Janssen!

(I spy...a shoe switch.  We walked all around the zoo that morning, so the Saltwaters were definitely needed for comfort.)

Oh, and today was fortuitously an animal print link-up at Marionberry Style!


  1. So happy that it spoke to you!

    Also, I'm pretty jealous that you aren't pregnant anymore.

  2. Oh my gosh! You have (had) the cutest baby bump ever!!! You look so happy! Love the pop of animal in the shoes :)).

  3. Loving your animal print and your cute baby bump! I found your blog at Marionberry Style Link-Up. I am now following you. Come over and check me out http://theserenasaga.blogspot.com.

  4. It seriously blows my mind that you could wear SKINNY JEANS while pregnant. I was so massively swollen by the end, there's no way I could have jammed my elephant legs into anything remotely snug like that. But you look adorable--you make a very cute pregnant mom :-)

  5. Seriously... You just stuck a basketball up your shirt, right? Cuz that's what it looks like :)

    Cute outfit. Very fun.

  6. You are too cute...I love that you've got gingham and pink going on here. And Agreed with Rachel...can't believe how tiny you stayed the whole time, lucky girl!

  8. So, so cute. Love the gingham with the leopard.

  9. Look at that beautiful baby bump! You are too cute!!
