    Warning: Way too many fucking pictures

    Don't want to clog up Chicken Shopping but this is a continuation of family photo talk. It's tomorrow, mostly photos of E but also some of the three of us. E and J are set (mostly), I need help with my outfit. J vetoed his sweater so he's just in the plaid shirt, dark jeans, brown shoes.

    E's outfit
    Question 1) Baby sweater or no baby sweater? I'm was leaning no sweater for group photos but now I'm second guessing?

    I have three sweaters to choose from
    Concerns: At first glance green seems to look best in the group photos, and on it's good in one photo but not good in the other. Maybe doesn't coordinate as well?

    Concerns: Frumpy? The best one? Can't decide. Will the texture photograph well or weird?
    Edit: Removed several huge photos

    Concerns: Not thick enough? Or is it fine? Will you be able to see my jeans and it will look weird? This was J's favorite but while I like it, I think it might look the worst?

    My vote is green, no sweater for E, but I'm not the best at these things. I like the 3rd sweater, but I agree that it's a bit thin. I have no idea if your jeans would show in pics, but I imagine it would if it showed in a mirror selfie.

    No baby sweater. I like the second sweater. The third seems too thin and your jeans show through. I would steam whichever sweater you wear (handheld or in the shower, or stick in the dryer to dewrinkle).

    Love the white, as long as it doesn’t look weird when sitting.

    I like 1 and 2 with a slight preference for 1. No baby sweater (the dress is too cute).

    Winner! Because E’s sweater is really cute, it’s just that her dress is too so you kind of hate to cover it up.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Definitely returning sweater #3 white lace.

    Will bring little E sweater for maybe a few of the solo pics of her.

    Going to wear the longer gold leaf necklace.

    Now I’m torn between #1 green and #2 white textured. Bahhhh! J said “definite green, no white. White lace.” No help.

    @HBC I didn’t even think to sit in it.

    @Zombie Llama for sure it will go in the dryer or under a quick iron.

    I like the green sweater better. I like how it looks with E and J’s outfits.

    Thanks all! I went green. E wasn’t thrilled with photos. Crossing my fingers for one good one for the Christmas card!

    Anyone want to help me pick out a baby shower dress? My shower is going to be on Sunday, February 3rd at a brewery before they open to the public (10am-1pm, I think). The only other thing I know about the shower is that the main food will be a chili bar, so the vibe is definitely on the casual side and a bit nontraditional.

    February in FL could be anywhere between 40 degrees and 80 degrees so I might want to buy two dress options - I have a wedding to go to in early April that I could wear the warm weather option to if it's cold the day of the shower.

    I will be 29 weeks pregnant by then. So far, I've felt more comfortable in fitted clothing because I think it looks like I'm wearing a tent in looser/flowy styles.

    Eta: I've ordered a couple of things from Pink Blush and none of them seem to fit me well so anything from there probably only has a 50-50 chance of working.

    Eta, again: I already have these dresses (green dress & burgundy dress) that I could wear if it's cooler, but I'll likely wear the green one to a bridal shower (with a lot of the same people) the weekend before.

    I like the burgundy. It’s Valentines-y.

    This was my favorite maternity dress, so much so that I had it in multiple colors and sleeve styles. It is very bump flattering but can also be worn post-pregnancy. It could absolutely work for a shower.

    I hated the Pink Blush dress I got too. It was supposed to be fitted but was overall too big and boxy and just looked awful. I really like the dresses that you already have. I can't see the burgundy color but the shape is great (maybe sold out?). I actually liked a dress I got from Motherhood Maternity for my shower, but I wore a summery one and it's not there anymore. These are pretty similar to what you already have but maybe:

    I can’t see the burgundy color either but love the design of that one!

    My shower dresses were both Seraphine. I bought them at Destination Maternity so I could try them on, but you can buy online too:


    I completely love both of them.

    Ok, I will wear the burgundy one I already have if it's cold (it is long sleeve and thick knit) and I ordered two Seraphine dresses to try in case it's warm that day. Hopefully one of them will work for the wedding in April too. Thank you all!
