Surviving Dreamforce at 35 weeks pregnant (that's almost 8 months...)

This week I'll be in San Francisco for the famous "Dreamforce" conference for work...It will involve a lot of walking and crowds, so wish me luck.  I'll be posting outfits from the road, likely grainy hotel room photos.  I've carefully crafted what I'm taking for both comfort and minimal packing.  So, we'll see how I do!  I have 5 weeks left till my due date, and only three weeks left of work till my leave is scheduled to start.

Skirt + Booties



A skirt!  I couldn't wear a skirt without tights without my trusty Bandalettes.  Now that my thighs have gotten a bit fuller (combination of not working out regularly and normal pregnancy softening...I am looking forward to getting back to the gym).

I actually bothered to curl my hair, too.  Wow, I must be really energetic...

Shades of Blue, End of September


The last day of September!  The summer as flown by!  This new cashmere cardigan is to die for, although the sleeves have to be pushed up since they are loose and long.  The barely visible top is chambray making this my version of denim on denim.  My trusty metallic Frye flats added a little sparkle.

Navy Blue - Early Fall


An admittedly very boring outfit!  I changed my photo setup slightly to eliminate the flash shadow, so hopefully my photos will be a little easier on the eyes now.  

It was misty most of the day today, so I wore these brown waterproof Sperry Top-sider booties to ship some shoes (sold on Poshmark) and meet a friend for linner (lunch-dinner).  

Less than 7 weeks till my due date.  Time sure seems to have gone quickly this summer!

The Great You Look Fab Meet-up


I've moved my photo-taking operation upstairs for the time being.  It's now in the relatively unfurnished nursery, so we'll see if my spot gets overrun with baby thing (likely)!

I wore this to head downtown for the YLF meetup!  If you haven't checked out the YLF forum and blog you are missing out (see it here)!  It's a fantastic group of wise, beautiful women from all over the world and we were lucky enough to get a BUNCH of us together today.  I didn't attend the morning breakfast and shopping, as I had a terrible night last night and didn't have any energy for shopping.  Instead, hubby and I did some gentle shoe shopping and then both headed over to meet the ladies for lunch.  Love all those gals, and wish we could see each other "in real life" more often!!

I am loving these Vince suede sneakers (booties?).  The color is divine, the style is cheeky casual, and they are so comfortable!  Worn with a non-maternity tee in a size too big.  I also got a new nude lipstick that I love - it's Maybelline , so cheap - called Born with It.


The requisite pregnancy max dress (2 of 2, since I have one in teal, as well).  This one was a hand-me-down.  I'd normally avoid black.   My lipstick color here is also new.  I've been doing a lot of lipstick shopping lately!  This one is Dior Addict, and the color is Londres (French word for London).

This was another Pintrest inspired outfit.

A Pair of Leather Jackets


Muted shades of beige and black.  Wearing my new Dior Addict lipstick in Londres!


This look was inspired by this pin on Pintrest.   Beige peep-toe booties (Anyi Liu, very comfy!, blush moto and skinny jeans with white tee.

Gold and Navy


Navy blue has become a staple neutral since I found two good pair of navy maternity trousers.  This cream satin smock-top is an old non-maternity piece I've had for a few years but put away for when I was pregnancy (it looks too much like maternity wear for me to wear it comfortably when I'm NOT pregnant!)

The gold-toned flats are very comfy, with just the right amount of support!  They are Frye, and so have a little intentional distressing, as well as a mix of pink and yellow golds.
