WIWW: Bubble Necklace & Plum Cords

Happy Wednesday, readers!  Whatchu wearin’, today??

The cheesy poorly un-posed ‘look-away-from-the-camera‘ shot.  Totally unplanned.  Swear.

Me: ‘Jordan- Let’s take my picture out in the front.’ 
Jordan: ‘You mean, you are not only subjecting me to being your photographer, yet again, but now you’re making me do it in front of all our neighbors?  I thought we were through with this picture-taking business after your last ‘belly’ picture.’
Me: ‘You thought wrong, bub..’   

Once we realized that there was a plethora of neighbors out and about outside right at that very moment, we stopped for photo-op at the front porch. 

The porch pillars hid our shenanigans with the camera.. So our still-new neighbors don’t think I’m this excessively vain woman thats come out of hiding after months of (being on bed rest) living on their street.   

top / Loft (last season) * undershirt/ Express (old) * corduroy pants / Loft (last season)  
 bubble necklace / Amazon * shoes / Steve Madden (borrowed)

I was excited to wear this shirt, finally.. after 9 months!  I purchased it right before I became pregs with the twinsies, and ended up only wearing it once to work before it became too short to cover the growing bump.  As for these cords- amazing.  I LOVE them.  I have two pairs- one in this gorg plum color and some in navy.  I must say that Loft knows how to make a well-fitting pant of the cord kind.  I wear their Modern Fit- fits me well in the rear and sits lower on the waist.

I got the bubble necklace (my very first, finally!) for Christmas from the fabulous MIL (mother-in-law).  She ordered it off Amazon, and after purchase realized it wouldn’t be here until mid-January.  Much to her surprise it came with plenty of time for gift giving- making for a very happy DIL (daughter-in-law). That woman sure knows how to accessorize me.  Jordan tells me I have a hoarding issue with my ornate collection of jewlery- but I can totally blame her for all that I have.  Totally.

And those adorable leopard print pumps.. borrowed from my friend Ashley forever and a day ago.  I forgot I even had them until I did an inventory looking for outfits to wear my first week back to work.  I should probably return them to you, sweet friend.  You love me.
