Parade of carnations skirt and books

Sugarlips Apparel sent me this super pretty skirt last week and I'm so happy it fit over the bump. I decided to dress it down with a striped button up shirt and my "Peter Pan" shoes. I pulled all my hair in a messy bun because sometimes I like to move my blunt fringe out of my face (especially when Daryl and I go on evening walks).

I can't believe that today I'm officially 30 weeks pregnant. Sometimes it feels like I've been pregnant forever, but when I really think about it time has flown by. My mom and I were sorting through all of the children's books from my childhood, that we've purchased, and that I've been gifted. I can easily say that he has at least 200 or so books so far. I think reading to your child is so important.. even this early on (;
Shirt: Old Navy
Shoes: Thrifted
Necklace: Gift from Daryl
