Okay so there’s not much “mode” to celebrate lately.  At this point, I’m wearing whatever fits.  I’m currently bigger than I was when I gave birth to Sebastian, which is no small feat, and have very few options left in my closet.  Since I only-probably-hopefully have a couple more weeks, I’m trying to avoid buying anything else and just living in whatever stretches.

Maya Brenner sent me this mini “J” necklace that I’m absolutely in love with.  It’s simple and delicate, great for layering.  You can add letters too, making it the chicest little push present for mamas who like the idea of wearing something inspired by their children but don’t want the traditional birthstone, “mommy jewelry.”  You can put me in that category for sure.

The weather in NYC was glorious this weekend in comparison to the rest of the summer.  My idea of glorious that is.  Today, it was downright breezy and not overly sunny, perfect for strolling and dining outdoors.

We learned early on that picnics in the park are the way to go with our rambunctious little one and fortunately have great take-out options in our ‘hood as well as parks and waterfront.  There’s nothing like a New York City bagel, especially when you’re eating for two!   We hit up a local fave this morning and relaxed at the playground.  No spills, no clanging silverware, no dirty looks.  A fine way to start the week.

  14. Sounds perfect! There’s nothing like a picnic in the park.

    My little one is a wild thing so lately picnics trump restaurants more and more for me. Much easier than having to go all momma bear on someone who doesn’t enjoy listening to her wild laughter!

  15. Cute family pics!! :)

  16. Jill, I know how you feel! At the end of my first pregnancy I would wear anything that fit – but you look fantastic. I’m starting my second trimester, so now it’s my turn to get bigger as the weeks go by!
    Look forward to seeing the little one soon :) beso

  17. The pants, flats, and vest are perfect for the latter days of pregnancy. Aiden and I can’t get enough of bagels. Or picnics. LOL.

    Hang in there, Jill. You’re still a Glamamom!

  18. Such fun day! You have a gorgeous family!! Love your necklace!

  19. I remember this phase. I was sick of everything and wanted no more maternity. Have fun with accessories and know it’s all temporary! And the necklace is so sweet!

  20. Those pics are the essence of adorable!! Hope you are staying as comfy as possible while you wait.

  21. Looks like a great weekend:)
    Love that vest, obviously…and plan to rock it well into fall…you look great!
    Thankfully the weather cooled a bit for us this week….
    Hang in there mama.
