See Ya On the Flip Side

News flash: I’m short.

I know, it’s heart stopping news. While it’s not exactly a revelation, most people I’ve met who “knew” me on the blog first are still shocked with how short I am. 5’2″ on a good day ;)

I was bound and determined this time around to not jump straight into my maternity clothes like I did with LJ. I was going to make my closet work, come up with cute outfits. Yada yada yada, I was full of crap, ain’t happenin’.

The other day I thought I would try out that original plan of mine and see how it worked for me…

Shirt/Vest: Old Navy, Shorts: Gap Maternity, Necklace/Sandals: Target, Ring: Beach vendor

I proceeded to spend the rest of the day yanking down this shirt to cover my ridiculously straight out in front belly.

Sorry patrons of Target, you got more than you bargained for!

I now remember why I gave up my regular clothes so quickly. No one, not even me, wants to see the underside of my belly and accompanying stretchmarks.

So for now, dear closet of mine, I am surrendering to the enormity that is my belly. Birthday clothes I got to wear once, sweaters that will look like crop tops, even skirts with elastic waists…see ya on the flip side!

  2. you are too cute. and wow i never guessed you would be shorter than I am!! I am 5’4″! I always pictured you as really tall! how weird!

    BTW speaking of color, i bought myself a pair of colored skinnies! I am so excited. LOL Im gonna share the outfit post on Wed. But just had to share with you, because you are the main reason I even started doing outfit posts. ♥ I heart you!!

    I have the same problem! I’m also 5’2″ and when I’m pregnant I feel huge…and kind of like a hobbit. :( Maxi dresses and cardigans were my friend this last pregnancy!

    You’re the cutest. And I’m jealous of the fact that you’re in shorts in October. And, I still don’t believe you’re 5’2.

  8. Look how cute you are!! What a great outfit too. Cute cute belly. xoxo

    You look great! And there are lots of cute maternity clothes out there! My friends and I used to trade to ease the cost. Ask around at church or playgroups!

    I’m 5′ 2″ too, with an almost exact same body shape! On my last pregnancy (#4) I seriously had to start wearing maternity clothes as soon as I found out I was pregnant. :)
