Fashion Friday // Maternity Style

We went to Jasper on saturday, so the boys could snowboard. Chelsea and I shopped around the town, and went for a nice walk around the lake, and of course took photos of my outfit. I have found it a little more difficult dressing with a belly. Lots of things I think will look cute I put on and immediately take it off because I feel like it looks funny! This dress is SO stretchy it makes it easy and comfortable to wear while pregnant. March004 copyMarch012 copyMarch001 copy March005 copy March006 copyMarch013 copy March016 copy March024 copy

Diaper Bag

After we packed our hospital bag we got together everything we thought the baby would need and put it in the diaper bag!

I ordered our diaper bag from OIOI and I am absolutely in love with it! I love that it isn’t too patterned so I won’t get bored with it in a few months. I also love that it isn’t too feminine looking so when Steve has the baby it doesn’t look like he is carrying a purse around.

– I ordered this diaper clutch off Etsy. It is nice because its holds your diapers and wipes, and its also a change pad. You can keep everything in one and just pull out the clutch when the baby needs a diaper change.

A pop of color!

Even though it snowed here in Edmonton today I am being optimistic in thinking spring is around the corner. I made this fabric banner last year some time and didn’t have any idea of where I was going to put it in my home. I made it all neutrals so I could put it anywhere and have it work. It has been up over the old window in our kitchen for quite some time and I love it there, but everything was cream and neutrals. I went to fabric land and picked up some sheer turquoise fabric to add to it for a pop of color.

The banner is very easy to make. I got fabric in the colors I liked, cut it into strips with fabric scissors, and knot them over some twine.

I love the little change! The best part of it all is when I get tired of the bright color I can just take them off! Sometimes it is lots of work being someone who needs change in their life often!
