mama things : keeping stylish and cool

mama things : keeping cool | unruly things

at 7.5 months pregnant with temperatures rising outside, I’m beginning to feel a wee bit uncomfortable. so I’ve been looking for ways to keep cool while staying stylish during these hot summer months. airy dresses, tanks, shorts, bathing suits, cover ups… and of course, popsicles.

so far, the only maternity clothes that I’ve purchased have been shorts, leggings, a few tees and a bathing suit. I’ve just been wearing regular styles that are longer, have higher elastic or drawstring waists or are made of more forgiving fabrics like gauze or cotton. these tanks are my favorite for wearing under shorter blouses or on their own and admittedly, I’ve got 3 in white and 3 in black – they’re THAT good. and since the belly is getting bigger, sandals that don’t require buckling are the best since bending over has become a little cumbersome.

in addition to light-weight clothing, I’ve been eating my fair share of popsicles and drinking lots of iced tea. plus, I’ve been spending a lot of time hanging out with Wolf in his kiddie pool. heck, it’s big enough for the both of us!

here’s a few of my favorite summery pieces for maternity and beyond:

    Good luck keeping cool – I know we are in the midst of a serious popsicle making phase…and I’m not even pregnant! I think I need to check out Paletas. When I was in Mexico we got the most delicious paletas de coco that I’m hoping to recreate. Do you have a favorite recipe from the book?
