Packing It Away ...

Anyone who knows me knows what a complete fashion addict I am.  To say that I love fashion would be an understatement ... I teach Fashion Marketing to the youth of America each and everyday, the sales associates at over two of the stores in our local mall know me by name & career (and, in fact, gave me a "mini-celebration" the other day when they noticed I was buying merchandise from the maternity collection, and my shoes are categorized & labeled in clear shoe boxes in my walk-in closet, which happens to be one of my favorite places on earth.

So ... as you would likely suspect ... the idea of an expanding waistline in the months to come is slightly daunting.  Obviously, the end result will be well worth it and the perks (i.e; your favorite foods with less guilt) are an extra bonus.  However, today my due date calender dates me at less than three months pregnant, and I am already out of my favorite skinny jeans and a majority of my slim cut dresses. 

Thankfully, "Santa Claus"/MY MOM! knows me well and got me the ultimate maternity style book for Christmas a few days ago.  And after hiding my head in the book ever since (in an effort to figure out this "style with child" mystery ... I have a renewed faith in the months to come. 

TASK ONE - described specifically in chapter one - is to put away all of those too-tiny clothes, which can be taken out again after you give birth to that bundle of joy and are back to your pre-baby body.  So today, I followed directions, and spent the afternoon packing away many of the close friends who have been very good to me over the past few years. 

 Although it sounds like a painful process, as each piece of clothing certainly has its own speical memories, I am confident to reunite with them soon.  They are folded neatly & ready for Mr. BB to carry to the attic when he gets home from work ... and in its place is already a few stylish maternity pieces I have happened to pick up the last few weeks. :)
