I am a clothes horse.

Spending many a day at home, a lot of  the time in terribly mismatched pajamas, has made me crazy for wanting to wear cute sun dresses. I am aware that we are only one day into spring, and that here in lovely New England, summer rears its head sometime near the fourth of July, but this is not stopping me from amassing and trying on as many amazing frocks as I can get my hands on!

When I was pregnant with the twins in the summer 2008 I made sure I had a vast collection of retro-like dresses to get me through. That's not to say that I didn't have a pile of uglies that I wore on the days where I couldn't bear to get off of the couch, but in general I think I donned some winners! This one below was from Kohls and was not a maternity dress, but fit so well! It reminds me of the dress Appollonia Vitelli wore when she took the walk with Michael Corleone (and the entire town) on the Godfather; which of course I can not find a photograph of on the entire web-tube, so you will have to take my word for it! This dress even has the white yolk feature on the back shoulders- it is incredible! Luckily it is in great condition still, so in a month or two I should be able to wear it!

 I was smart to put all of my "maternity" dresses away after having the twins (in a box I coincidentally  labeled "Maternity Clothes-If Not Used by 2011 DONATE") and am happy that I have them to wear this summer. I do however need quite a few more! I just purchased a fabulous faux "shelf bust" style dress from my new favorite maternity website Bump To Bump.  I will do an outfit of the day post when I get it!  

Another new item I've bought for this pregnancy is from everybody's favorite, Target.  I generally do not wear pants as a rule, but on the days where I am chasing the boys everywhere, I opt for super dark jeans, generally cuffed and super high water. I have no idea why I feel the need to roll them so high, it's just a habit! I love to wear knee length shift type dresses over cropped jeans. I have this black dress from Old Navy circa 2009, which has a bit of stretch to it, that I usually wear over jeans so hopefully I can get a few more wears out of it.

So what I really need are shirts.  I hate to wear t-shirts and smock type shirts. This is a problem because 99% of maternity wear are this style. I am open to website suggestions for cute wrap style shirts and striped sailor type tops. I am loving this one from Old Navy:  Maternity Striped Boat-Neck Tees.  

Viva la Shopping-or Viva la compra!
