Over the years, I’ve heard a lot about how it’s not fun being pregnant during the summer months. In my case I’m living out the third trimester during the hottest months of the year…here in the So Cal foothills we can reach temps above 100 degrees in August and September. But I have to say it’s not as bad as I thought it would be. Probably for one because we get a very dry heat out near the desert…humidity is low, so it’s not crazy sweaty like it would be where I grew in South Florida. Also, I’m fortunate to have a swimming pool in my backyard, and swimming (or more like floating) is one thing I can still do at this stage in the game. Finally, I’ve suffered pretty bad lower back pain during my pregnancy, and I think the heat helps a bit, whereas cold weather would probably make it worse. The most important thing IMO is how you dress for the heat while pregnant. I’ve been living in breezy dresses for a few months now. It’s truly the easiest way to go!

Maxi Dress Madness
I’m a huge fan of maxi dresses as it is, but since getting pregnant, I can’t get enough of them. They’re super comfy and flattering (between the sumer heat and my growing belly). This one (like most of my preggo clothes) is from H&M, and due to the drapey, voluminous style, I only had to size up to a 4 for it to fit comfortably. At this rate I’ll probably be able to wear many of my pregnancy purchases even after giving birth – so much better than investing in a bunch of maternity clothes I’ll never wear again!! I wore this dress recently to dinner with family and friends…
Fancy Yachts & Paradise Palms
Sorry for the delay on this post!! I’ve been hosting a bunch of family since last weekend and things have been hectic. This is another look from my trip to the harbor with hubby. It was truly such a pleasant staycation. After soaking in the sunset by the water, we grabbed a late dinner downtown. San Pedro is a really cute town with a lot of history and diversity.
Fun With Fringe & Faux Fur
I’m approaching 6 months pregnant now and my belly has definitely started to grow. This is a moment I always dreaded as a worst fear. Every time anyone ever asked me about babies, I would think please no, my body just isn’t made for that…
