Pinned and It and Did It - Maternity Style Help

Hello everyone!  I'm hooking up with Heather's Pinned it and Did It link up today.  I needed some inspiration, it's getting harder to find good ideas for outfits lately, so I spent some time on Pinterest yesterday looking for some ideas and I found several!  Here's what I chose for today.

I loved this outfit because it totally meets my criteria of comfy and also somewhat stylish!  I was excited that I had the necessary items to make this outfit work for me!  Leggings, boots, oversized sweater?  Check, check and check!  Not to mention I haven't worn this striped shirt I got at the swap yet and also, it's been ages since I've worn my favorite H&M sweater.  This is is seriously one of my favorite thrifted items of all time!

I have to say, Pinterest has been a life saver for me during this pregnancy.  I love searching outfit ideas on Pinterest even when I'm not pregnant, but I have been happy to find lots of maternity style there while I have been pregnant!  I highly recommend searching there if you ever find yourself pregnant and struggling with outfit ideas too!  I created a maternity style board separate from my regular style board too.  Feel free to follow me if you don't already!  Link is on the right!

Striped shirt - Swap
Sweater - H&M, thrifted
Leggings - Simply Vera, Kohls
Boots - Target 
Necklace - gift from friend 

In other news, Mr. Monkey had a physical this morning.  He wanted to get a flu shot before the baby comes and figured it wouldn't hurt to get all checked out too.  It's almost a little strange having him be the one to go to the doctor for once!  I've definitely had my share of appointments lately!  And at least this time was much less eventful than the last time he had a physical.  In the early days of my blog I told the story of what happened - found in this post.  I'm very thankful that nothing like that happened today!

  11. I totally agree! Pinterest has saved my sartorial butt on many an occasion and although I've been through this before (three times!!!!!), I seem lost this time for some reason. You look adorable and I love your thrifted cardigan! BTW I totes have this same Pin in my inspiration file too! LOL
