Mode Monday | Bump Watch 2012

Since it’s Memorial Day, and the unofficial start of summer, I thought it was fitting to recap how I’ve been styling my bump, as iPhone-photographed and Instaglam’d by me, mostly in hotel bathrooms. Classy, I know.

As the temps heat up and I continue to expand (I gained 11 lbs this month, sigh), it’s going to be a challenge to put on a bra, no less accessorize. Hopefully #MondayMingle will give me the continued motivation I need to be pregnant and glamorous.
