I am officially at the “completely swollen” stage of pregnancy! Haha I finally had to suck it up and take off the rings (which was a struggle – I thought I was gonna have to saw them off)! This is probably the last post you’ll see my rings in. My feet, ankles, hands, all swollen! I rarely put on jeans except to go out and this was what I wore for a little get together I went to – and then went home and threw back on my sweats :) but I have been loving this top! I really needed a basic, black blouse and I love how long this one is! I find longer styles to be so much more flattering on my body type!

If you guys missed the tutorial for this hairstyle, you can watch it here!!

Hope you guys all have a fabulous weekend!!! xoxo

    You do not look swollen at all! You are glowing! I love the cute braids you always have. I really wish my thin hair could do this. Maybe It is time I invest in some extensions?

    LOVE this look – from the front you don’t even look pregnant. I can’t imagine the swollen hands/feet etc. Must be so annoying! Truly gorgeous.

      Aw thanks Katie!! And yeah being swollen is no good haha good thing it is just in the end of pregnancy! xx

    I love the photography style in this post! Also, great braids!

    For those of you looking for Amber’s necklace the one from Nordstrom is sold out but I was just at Target today and found literally a replica of it!!! Only $15 and its a gold long chain with a small horn shape pendant. Almost completely identical! I looked and couldn’t find it online but pop in at your local Target to see if they’re carrying it if you are completely obsessed with the dainty necklace look just like myself! Just a tip :)

    Is there a trick you use to have your braids start right at your part? For some reason I always feel like my braid starts half way through my forehead no matter what I do hahah. Thanks for the braid inspiration!

    • amber June 11, 2014 at 9:21 am Permalink

      Yes! You need to grab THINNER sections when you start, they should be less than an inch away from your part if that makes sense! If you watch my tutorial you can see what size sections I grab to start the braid and hopefully that will help!

    Hair tutorial please!!!

    You do maternity fashion with such flair – so though you may feel horribly swollen, you still look amazing!

    • amber June 11, 2014 at 9:19 am Permalink

      Aw thanks girl!! Glad you think so! Haha hard to feel ‘fashionable’ or ‘cute’ this far in pregnancy!! :)

    You have the most amazing hair!

    Well if this is your completely swollen stage, I hope I look half as good as this when I am pregnant. Those braids are amazing!! That is some serious talent.

    • amber June 11, 2014 at 9:12 am Permalink

      Oh gosh you are too sweet!! I honestly probably look more swollen in person! But thanks so much!! xx
