Cozy Fall Days

Cozy Fall Days

I’m officially 19 weeks pregnant—and even though my energy has returned—I am still keeping it easy and relaxed…I’m all about cozy fall days!



I am now 19 weeks pregnant, which is the beginning of week 20. I feel like time’s just flying by! I’m so much more relaxed this time around as well. I remember when I was pregnant with Kingston how I would literally count each passing day—now I’m much more laid back + I worry less! I just want to enjoy and soak it all in! Being pregnant is a blessing, and guess what? I finally started to “pop”—yay! See this post HERE to get a better view of my bump! I not only look pregnant but I feel very much pregnant!



On a different note, I love being pregnant in the fall! I adore these cozy fall days where I can simply bundle up in oversized sweaters and poncho’s. Comfort is totally key this season!

As always, thanks much for reading and have a fabulous weekend!

PS: I hope to see some my fellow Chicagoan’s tonight at the Marie Claire x Chanel event! It would be so nice to finally meet some of you in person!

    You look amazing, dear V., this powder pink poncho is so lovely! I also loved the pants and the sandals and the sunnies are so beautiful! It’s now half way, dear V., your oregnant for 19 weeks, entering the 20th week! And during fall it must be so good, cause you can curl up, being cozy with wool items, that’s so nice! Keep it relaxed, dear V., you and the baby will feel the good atmosphere! I wish you a great weekend, hugs and kisses!
