Someone recently asked me what I miss most now that I am pregnant. It’s not news to anyone that we ladies have to give up a lot when we are with child. My initial thought was immediately red wine. Followed by missing that overall “healthy” feeling. Then, due to spontaneous cravings, both were trumped with “Oh my god, it’s totally real sushi and rare tuna!”
The next morning I was getting dressed and I realized that the thing I think I miss the most now that I am pregnant, is fitting into all of my cute, fall clothes. On top of the fact that you are no longer in control of your body and you’re now larger than you’ve ever been in your entire life – it is even more difficult to feel confident when you now have a very limited wardrobe (when you’re not used to that at all). I’m currently rocking one pair of jeans and a couple pairs of leggings – along with several solid shirts, a few tanks and my go-to cardigan. Thank goodness I work from home and it really doesn’t matter what I look like most days! I don’t know how y’all do it! An entire new wardrobe for a mere nine, long months is not in our budget!
But I’ve quickly learned – it’s okay to have a few go-to solid pieces of clothing. The trick is to dress up the basic tee and cardigan with accessories. Accessories like my new pair of spectacles from Firmoo.com.
I have been trying to add a touch of “functional-glam” to all of my current outfits. You cannot really tell in these pictures (because my real camera is broken and because the rain wouldn’t let up enough for us to leave the front porch…) but this shirt has gold, glitter sparkles in it. Paired with a rose gold and coral necklace, gold earrings, a glitter watch and glasses that look like I’m ready to work – but have beautiful gold arms. Wait – are the sides of lenses called arms??
Whether you’re pregnant or not, if you’re looking for new glasses (to make you less blind or simply as a fashion accessory) I highly recommend Firmoo.com. This is my third or fourth pair of lenses from Firmoo. Why so many?? It’s not because they have broken… they are all still in great condition and used all the time! It is because they are inexpensive enough that I can have a few prescription pairs, not break the bank and then coordinate them appropriately with outfits.
I have the hubby believing that these glasses are merely for vision. But we all know, every little accessory counts when it comes to a completing an outfit!
The glasses I am wearing in this post are style number DBSN68048. Like I said, I really love this pair because it has the funky, nerdy look from the front with the touch of gold fanciness on the side.

And because no blog post is really complete without a selfie, photobombed by a border collie…
What accessory do you wear the most? What was your trick to accessorizing while pregnant?
Many thanks to Firmoo.com for giving me these new glasses. While they did send me new specs to review, the feelings I expressed about their company and this product were all my own.
