Bump Update: 23 Weeks

Bump Update: 23 Weeks

I’m excited to share another bump update with you today together with VIPme, the best place to pamper a pregnant fashionista like me. Can you believe that I’m already 23 weeks? Time’s truly flying by!



Clearly I’m keeping things easy and comfortable these days. I’m wearing stretch, faux-leather leggins paired with a knit sweater and a green sheath wool blazer from VIPme. Like denim, treat olive green as a neutral—it works with any ensemble, and it’s quite the statement piece as well! And as I’ve previously mentioned: I like to be comfortable without ever having to sacrifice style. Being 23 weeks pregnant can be tiring, though—especially as my bump continues to grow. My back is literally killing me, and it’s not always easy to shoot for the blog as well. Chicago has gotten to the point where it’s starting to get really cold out which often means that I’d rather just stay in and read a good book instead of heading out to shoot outfit pictures…but I know this is probably just a phase. Gotta hang in there, right?!



How about you?! Are you a blogger and/or an expecting mom(to-be)?! If so, how do you handle dealing with the colder temperatures?

    VIPme seems to be so good, dear V.! And you look so beautiful! I loved the blazer, I love green, and loved your leggings and flats, too! And the sweet bum, you look so sweet, dear V.! I can see the bump, but very subtly. It’s so amazing how the time flies, 23 weeks now! 17 more, and as I said, time flies, and you will be with your baby! Hope you have a very beautiful weekend, hugs and kisses!

    This is such a beautiful outfit, Vanessa! I adore your wool blazer, the olive color looks amazing on you and I agree, it should be approached and styled as a neutral! I’m also really loving those flats, which are so cute for the holiday season especially because of the pretty glitter details and I adore the gold cap toe! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the best weekend ahead!

    I think this time of year in general most of us just want to stay indoor. Those shoes are cute and look very comfy. You look so cute with your baby bump.

    Oooo loving those leggings and shoes! And I have been looking for a sweater like this. Went shopping for one yesterday but ended up with over the knee boots. You look gorgeous.

    You look SO gorgeous, Vanessa! I absolutely love this look, pregnant or not!

    Whenever you find out how to handle the cold weather, please let me know because I got sick and had to end up taking Alka Seltzer yesterday after shooting 7 looks in the cold. I am in love with that green jacket!

    I can’t say I understand how you feel as I’ve never been pregnant, but I do understand back pain and cold weather and not wanting to do outfits. It’s so much easier in the Summer! Love the leggings!

    I can’t believe you are 23 weeks already, its crazy how quickly time has flown by. I’m sure it hasn’t felt that way to you but you look amazing. I love your green blazer, the black trim is so chic. VIPme really has some great clothing and price points. By the way, I love your black and gold flats. Stylish and cute. I have to agree with you shooting outside during the winter is not a lot of fun especially when the windchill kick in. It’s honestly unbearable at times but we’re tough right!lol
    Hope you had a great weekend.

    xo, Jackie

    Olive green is definitely one of my fav neutrals, it always looks chic. You look fab and those shoes are gorgeous.

    I love your knit. The green blazer though is so fantasic. Leather leggings are my go-to in the winter. I think I’ve worn leather leggings at least twice in the last week. You look so chic and your skin just glows!
