Whether I’m at work, out with friends, or running around town with Emma Grace, I almost always opt to wear a dress. However, there are just some days where pants and a tee sound oh-so-appealing. I came across this “mama” shirt at Target a couple of weeks ago and while I can normally resist this type of tee, I just couldn’t this time. Why? Because being a mom is the single most important job I have ever had. It has been the most challenging, the most tiring at times, and the most humbling, but it has also given me the most joy and allowed me to love like I never have before. Being a mommy (“mommay” as Emma says now) to Emma Grace and baby #2 could not make me more proud. So, when I found a shirt that said “mom” in different languages I just couldn’t resist it simply because I want to tell the world that I am Emma’s mom and I love her more than I could ever imagine.
If I was not pregnant, I would pair this type of graphic tee with a skirt or distressed denim shorts. But, since I do have a somewhat large belly now, I paired it with white pants and a floral kimono. I’m a sucker for feminine clothing, so I’ll take any chance to add a little ruffle or feminine pattern like flowers.
fun fact: while shooting this outfit, my sweet photographer said “Anna, why don’t you tuck in the front of your shirt?” All I could do was simple giggle and show her what over-the-belly maternity pants look like…uh…there is no way I could tuck my shirt in unless it was tucked in on top of my belly. Mommies, do you feel me?
