fash•ion (fash-uh n) | summer brights

As you may have noticed my outfit posts have been extremely limited since I've become pregnant.  Although I love being pregnant with my little boy, I don't love being pregnant and haven't felt confident about my weight gain.  Here's a tip if you're a blogger of what NOT to do if you decide to get pregnant - Do NOT look at old outfit pics.  At the time I took those old pics, I was still not confident about my body and felt as big as I do now, but looking at them now I realize that I WAS skinny - or at least skinnier than I thought I was.  You can guarantee I will be using those pictures as motivation to get my body back in shape.

Even though I feel defeated every morning when I try to find something to wear, the combination of bright colors makes me happy and feel good.  Isn't it amazing how colors can help perk up your personality?  So despite the fact that I feel like a house, I know I can turn to bright colors to lighten up my mood.

|On days when you don't feel your best, or even if you don't love your outfit, do you feel like colors can help brighten up your mood?|

You are looking fabulous! Brights can definitely make you feel better just by styling them!! Almost there...

You are too cute and completely understand what you are saying. I did look at old posts and still do - it DOES not help with feeling great about oneself :) You do look great and can't wait to see on Thursday.

Tabitha - you are glowing! You look healthy and happy and the bright colors really suit you! Hope you're surviving this heat - it's been brutal!

First off, I think you are just a beautiful preggers lady. Think of the little man growing inside you! Still amazes me that we can do this thing.

But I do understand about not feeling like you look your best. Bright colors are also what I turn to to cheer myself up!
