First things first, happy friday and second things second, happy first day of autumn! I don’t know about you, but it surely doesn’t feel like autumn in ATL. My AC is still blasting and as badly as I want to burn pumpkin candles, it just doesn’t feel right. Am I alone? The pumpkin candles and pumpkin spice lattes can take the backseat until things cool down around here… but, one thing that I cannot help myself from indulging in are the insane amount of amazing fall sweaters that have recently hit stores. Also– to any of my women out there who have been insanely pregnant during the fall, there isn’t any pregnancy “uniform” (we will call if a uniform because, let’s be honest, it stays the same… like, every. damn. day) quite like your favorite pair of leggings, a t-shirt and an oversized comfy sweater.
It was a dream being in Chicago a few weeks back for the Falcon-Bears game to open the NFL season. The weather was crisp and cool…and let’s just say, I purchased my fair share of oversized sweaters while I was there. Guys… like, so many good ones that I had to bring another bag home with me on the plane. So. Having said all of this, I have rounded up some of my favorite recent buys, as well as some others that I am swooning over.. and let me just be honest, if the weather decides to drop below 80-90 in the next week (and before they sell out) they will for sure find themselves hanging in my closet in the very near future.
As far as my pregnancy body goes, I find that I am most confident when my hips and butt are covered..at least at this point in the game, which is why 90% of the sweaters I am wearing lately/swooning over are longer in length. Yet, truth be told, even when I am no longer pregnant, I still like to wear oversized things, it’s kind of how i’ve always been. Mamas out there– you can relate, comfort is key and pockets never hurt anybody! Even pregnant, I want to note that I either chose to purchase true to size (Small) and I even sized down in a few to XS-S. If you have any questions about sizing before you order, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below!
