Some days I wake up and think I’d love to be a fashion blogger. They all look so fun, put together and legit. I could do it right? I mean I love trying to put together outfits and pairing accessories with random looks. Then I realize I haven’t showered in 3+ days, I’m wearing the same yoga pants I’ve been wearing for 7+ days and I’m lucky if I’ve brushed my hair in 10+ days.
Now that I am pregnant, it has gotten even tougher to feel motivated, when nothing really fits. I am also at that in-between stage where I am obviously bigger than “Normal Suz” but I don’t think I necessarily look pregnant to strangers. I just look pudgy… maybe?
This was the first week that I have begun to embrace the belly though. I have decided that I hate the maternity jeans I bought from Target (after one wear, I feel like I’m wearing a circus tent because they are so stretched out and baggy). I spent most of last week wearing my American Eagle jeans (that I purchased shortly after I discovered I was with-child, that are a size larger than my norm) completely unbuttoned underneath my shirt. #WhichIsExactlyWhyICannotBeAFashionBlogger. I’m sure truly fashionable people don’t walk around in public with their jeans unbuttoned… or do they??
I was recently asked to review hair extensions for Irresistible Me. At first, I thought No Way! What in the world would I know about hair extensions?! But since they claim to make you irresistible… I figured why not! Ladies – before I give you my thoughts on my new long locks, let me tell you that I never do anything crazy with my hair. I’ve never colored it. I’ve never highlighted or treated it. I only use real, natural products to wash it and then every few months I get it trimmed. That being said, when I ordered my extensions, my hair was already pretty long and thick. So I went with the longest, heaviest option they had (so it wouldn’t get lost in my real hair).
When they arrived I was pleased at how well the color blended with my real hair. I was also thrilled (and quite surprised) at how quick and easy these extensions were to use! I went from long hair to really long hair in a matter of 7 minutes! At first (because I had never worn extensions before) it felt weird. However after maybe 10 minutes of wearing, I didn’t even notice the slight extra weight. I think next time I will curl both my hair and the extensions a bit to help them blend better. But like I said earlier, it’s a big deal to get dressed these days. Curling the hair probably would’ve pushed this mamma-to-be over the edge.
And speaking of mamma-to-be – I know several of you have asked for a “Bump-date” picture. Well, I think my black and white Chico’s top does a decent job of hiding my unbuttoned jeans and the baby belly… but you can definitely tell I’m a bit wider in the picture above! One of these days I will give you a real update on all the pregnancy news!
Also, don’t you just love all the black and white accessories I used in this outfit? The purse, the shoes and the border collie?? Maybe I could handle a fashion post every now and then after all…
Full Disclosure: Pieces of this post were either gifted to me in exchange for this post or I was compensated by Irresistible Me for my time. But everything that share are all my own thoughts, feelings and lack of fashion sense! Cheers!
