Spring always feels like the time of transitions and new beginnings. Out of any year this is probably the spring that marks the biggest transition for my family. Baby number 3 is due May 22nd and we are scheduled to move the beginning of April. Change, change and more change. Each week I hear myself saying to people that it feels like the calm before the storm when they ask how everything is going. I feel as if that sense of urgency hasn’t really hit yet. Kind of like today, the calm before the biggest snowstorm of the season! Seriously though, I am sitting here ready to move forward with warmer weather and new beginnings, but mother nature has different plans and instead is going to hit us with almost 2 ft of snow. How is a girl supposed to get motivated when we are heading 24 inches back into winter!?
Despite the forecast this week, I am still trying to set my sights on spring and all the changes ahead. Warmer weather is on the horizon and with the soon to be addition of a new baby and a whole new body for that matter, I definitely want to prepare on the fashion front by adding some great transitional sweaters into the mix. And I don’t just mean trading chunky knits for lightweight cashmere, I also went on the search for some looser fitting tops that can double as great nursing apparel as well. This season there are so many great sweater styles with slide slits, buttons, crossovers etc. that almost look like they are made to be maternity, but are not. I love being able to buy something now at 30 weeks pregnant that will also be perfect to wear once the baby is born and then once I am back to my “normal” weight. I have gotten so many compliments already on this purple wrap sweater. The crossover front leaves plenty of room for my growing belly and is the perfect opening for nursing as well. The best part though is it is not maternity and is not meant for nursing mothers. It is simply a cute sweater with a slit!
