outfit: muumuu territory

Oct 7, 2014

hat & middle ring Club Monaco
embroidered swing dress ASOS (pretty red one)
tights F21
studded boots Town Shoes 
navy trench coat Anthropologie (last worn here)
36 weeks (almost there!!!)

It's been a busy week over here, my sister flew down from Calgary for a visit and she brought my youngest niece who I hadn't met before along with her. She's almost a year old and after seeing her now, it's hard to believe that she was once a tiny three pound baby (born at 29 weeks) who could barley fit into preemie sized sleepers. We had a lot of fun, and now that they're gone the apartment is just too quiet. I miss them!

In that same week I started a new position at work, in a different department and in a different building which was nerve-wracking. I hope I'm making a good impression! Now I'm working right down town and it's been a bit of a hassle trying to figure out the best way to get to work. Between all the construction on the 417 and the crazy parking rates I've been doing what most people in Ottawa who have to commute to work do, I take the bus. Riding the bus has been ... Interesting. It's not bad, way faster than driving through all the construction (buses here have their own highways and roads, not sure if it's like that in other cities?) but I feel a bit stranded not taking my car to work. I think once the construction is done I'll go back to driving.

Here is a weekend outfit, an over-sized swing dress that would most definitely be a muumuu if it was floor-length. It's loose and unstructured, perfect to wear as a maternity dress. It's billowing shape has  been quite comfortable in this last trimester - which is exactly what I need in these final, uncomfortable days!
