Fashion Challenge + Important Announcement!

Today kicks off the 3 day fashion challenge being hosted by Natasha, Ashley, and Olivia! I am happy to be joining in and it feels good to be doing outfit posts again. For those of you who didn't check out this awesome challenge yourself, the basic idea is wearing 1 item for 3 days in 3 different ways! :-) For my 1 item I picked out my favorite pair of skinny jeans that I bought at Cato this past Winter. They are about 6 inches too long and I have been too lazy to go get them hemmed, so thus the classy rolled hem. I like these jeans because they are a slim flattering fit but not so tight you have to peel them off! :-) On to the photos!

Top// gift from a friend. Tank// H&M. Skinny Jeans// Cato. Black flats// borrowed from my sister ONCE and she swore I stretched them out even though I am only 1/2 a shoe size bigger so she then proceeded to give them too me. not sure what brand they are. ^_^

And as for my super important announcement... I am sure you probably already guessed it from the photos above (not to mention the massive amounts of maternity fashion pins I've ben pinning on Pinterest lately!). Yes, I'm pregnant! :-) I've just hit the 3 month mark, so baby will be making his or her appearance sometime around November. My husband and I are thrilled and looking forward to this next phase in our life. I'm full of nerves and emotions at this sudden change, but I'm learning to trust my Jesus more and more and I can truly say that I feel so blessed to be carrying a child. :-) 

This probably explains my lack of outfit posts in the past few months most of all. To be honest, in the past 3 months my wardrobe has mostly consisted of leggings and my husbands sweaters! Now that I am started to feel a bit better I'm planning on, ahem, trying to look a little more human and of course I'll start blogging outfit posts again regularly. 

I'm so happy to finally announce my pregnancy on the blog... from now on I'm sure you'll hear bits and pieces about it more often...but I swear I won't turn into crazy mom mode and constantly post about baby stuff that no one will be interested in! ;-)

See you tomorrow with day 2 of this weekend's fashion challenge!
