What I Wore Sunday: Finally a Dress Again!

I was super excited about this simple outfit for a few reasons. The first and biggest reason (for me anyway) was that I am finally feeling stable enough again to start wearing some wedge heels! Heels are one of my favorite things, and having my pelvic bones so weak and painful for so long meant that I have had to only wear flats for quite some time now. I am still not pain free, and not stable enough to wear a pair of regular heels yet, but this was an exciting improvement for me. 🙂

I also have been having a really hard time finding any dresses that look good on my figure and are breastfeeding friendly, without being really low cut. I have searched high and low and finally found a dress I liked for wearing to church once in a while. It was a hard process. Most button down shirt dresses are not flattering on me, I can’t do strapless comfortably, and some scoop neck dresses that may be breastfeeding friendly are too low cut for my taste. It is surprisingly difficult to find a good wrap dress lately!

We went by the pier after church on Sunday to look at getting some fish for dinner, and were hoping baby E would enjoy his first time seeing the ocean. Unfortunately, he was too sleepy to pay attention to his surroundings!

What I Wore: Father’s Day Weekend Part 2

I decided to coordinate my outfit a little with what my two boys were wearing that day for fun. 🙂 We all wore our black sneakers (although E’s are really just socks that look like shoes) and a vest. E thinks it is quite hilarious whenever I have a hat on or a scarf in my hair, and he thought this white with black polka dot scarf was particularly entertaining. I am happy my outfits are so amusing to him. 🙂

Father’s Day Weekend Part 2

Since it was our first Father’s Day, I “helped” my two boys put together coordinating outfits on Sunday. 🙂 I even wore a semi-coordinating outfit myself. We started off the day going to mass, and then headed out to the California Science Center. E was very interested in everything, but he was particularly fascinated by the room with three walls covered with movie screens and my dad’s students’ R.O.V. exhibit!

Unfortunately, E fell asleep just before we went in to see the Endeavour. There will be plenty of time for him to see it in the future though. I am pretty sure it won’t be leaving the museum any time soon. 😉 I can’t wait until he sees it for the first time. While I was pregnant with E, it flew right over our backyard on its final flight into the airport here in Los Angeles, and I have been excited for him to see it since then.

Unfortunately, E’s grandpa wasn’t there to see his reaction to the R.O.V. exhibit for the first time, but we finished off the evening by meeting up with Grandma and Grandpa for dinner!
