I’m currently 27 weeks pregnant and my baby girl is growing rapidly!  My bump is getting so big and styling it has become quite a challenge.  I’m finding that dresses, cardigans and tights are the only things that are comfortable at this point.  I’m one week away from my third trimester with only three more months to go until she arrives…where has the time gone?

I was really excited to see they were “made in Italy” but the pair I got was “made in India”.  I felt a little duped when I saw that but I’m slowly getting over it. 🙂  The color is not as orange as they appear online.  It says that sizing runs small but I didn’t find this to be the case as they feel true to size.  There are back and side zippers but the back zipper is decorative only and not functional.  These seem pretty comfortable and have a chunky 2.5″ heel.  I think for the price, they are good quality and would recommend them ( and hope yours are made in Italy)!

I’m so thrilled to finally get some cooler weather and see some leaves on the ground.  I never thought I would say this but I miss having four seasons like I did back in the Midwest.  It must be my pregnancy hormones talking. lol Thanks so much for reading and stopping by. 🙂
