Pretty in Plaid & Pregnancy Update

Pretty in Plaid & Pregnancy Update

It’s the season of plaid! Autumn is one of my favorite seasons: From sweaters, pumpkin spiced lattes, and the changing colors of the trees—it’s a big “Hooray” on my end! Continue reading to learn more + find out all about my 20 week ultrasound appointment!




I would define my style as classic with a little bit of edge. Plaid is one of these patterns that make it so easy to dress too! No matter your style, you can take advantage of this trend and make it your own as well. I wore my plaid shirt with an edgy moto jacket and paired it with some skinny jeans. Yes, they still fit and I can still button them—but let me tell you: It’s getting tight. Really tight. Which brings me to my 20 week ultrasound appointment I had yesterday.


I was so ready for my big 20-week ultrasound because it meant that I get to see little “Baby J” again! Ultrasounds are common procedures during pregnancy. It’s a non-invasive prenatal test used to ensure that Baby is developing properly, to check the baby’s estimated size and to see how the baby, placenta and umbilical cord are positioned.

Baby J is healthy and getting quite big! He’s in the 65%-tile of growth and weighs around 10 oz. Doctor says that everything looks perfect and that I should continue doing “what I’m doing” which probably means continue eating Taco Bell! LOL! Right after the appointment I literally devoured 3 tacos on my own! I’m telling you: Pregnancy is no joke! When you’re hungry, you’re hungry!

Anyhow, it really was a nice appointment and we couldn’t be more blessed knowing that our little nugget is a healthy little boy! For more pregnancy updates read these posts HERE & HERE.

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

    Vanessa, I’m loving the way you’ve styled your plaid shirt with the leather jacket, it looks amazing and the jacket adds that perfect amount of edge! I’m also loving your belt, too! Lol, you made me laugh with Taco Bell, haha. I haven’t had it in so long, I used to love the Chaulpas! Anyway, I’m so happy to know that both you and baby are doing well and healthy! Thanks so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have the best weekend ahead!
