Fashion Raiding My Sister's Closet

Raiding My Sister’s Closet: Pink and Red for Valentine’s Day

February 3, 2015


Here’s the thing about being 38.5 weeks pregnant: You basically have nothing left in your closet to wear.

I carry my babies super low (which means everyone assures me I’m having boys, even though I’ve had three ultrasounds for this baby and all three of them have said girl), and by those last couple of weeks, I’m down to, no exaggeration, four shirts that actually cover my stomach (and I kind of am refusing to wear dresses at this point because they make me look ridiculously enormous).

Which means that when we talked about this post a month or so ago and decided to do pink and red outfits for Valentine’s Day, I didn’t take into account the fact that I would not actually have a single item of both pink and red that would fit me by the time early February rolled around.

Fortunately, the thing about doing posts with your sisters is that neither of them is likely to give you a very hard time about it. (Right?)

I picked a pink scarf and called it good.

Also, it matches my jacket and my bag so bonus points to me. I have to give myself bonus points because I’m pretty sure my sisters won’t be quite as impressed.


Now it’s just the countdown to see when this baby girl actually arrives. After two late babies, I’m not holding my breath to go into labor on my own. In fact, Bart and I are making plans for Valentine’s Day (my due date), because it just seems so hugely unlikely that we’ll actually have a baby by then.

Pop over to see how Merrick and Landen dress for Valentine’s Day and be impressed by how much better they are at following directions than I am:

    I actually love this. I'm not good at changing up my color game, so this outfit would be a good transition for me (how did I come to not own anything pink?!). Thanks for sharing!

    My birthday is 20 Feb, so I am crossing my fingers! And I know you like unusual names so you are very welcome to use mine:) You're welcome! So excited!
    You look lovely by the way….

    I love you with a baby bump! And it's so true…those last few weeks even maternity shirts become midriff shirts! You look fantastic. So excited to meet baby girl.

    I love colored accessories! That's my go-to sort of outfit.

    Having made plans for Valentine's Day, wouldn't it be ironic to actually deliver then? My second was due November 29. We made thanksgiving plans, and sure enough, she was born the night before and I was in the hospital on thanksgiving (although I did ask for and receive an early discharge, so I still got some food).

    This is why I bless over-the-bump pants (although they no longer go completely over my stomach). If I didn't have these, my shirt options would be SEVERELY limited.

    Counting down! Looking amazing as usual.
