Pregnant in Texas

Pregant In Paris

During a summer visit to Corpus Christi, Texas where my family lives, we ventured out to a great lunchtime spot called Hesters Café & Coffee Bar. I loved the atmosphere, which was as cheery and eclectic as its teal front door. It used to be an industrial shop of sorts that was converted to a store with unique gifts, jewelry, home accessories and tons of other miscellaneous finds.  So, when I saw this mom-to-be, I thought it no surprise.  She wears a casual flare jean, cami, and flip flops with a color-blocking tank (very “in” right now). But what I love is that she tied what looked like a simple strand of twine around her high waist for something a little different. Something a little unexpected. And it worked. It worked much better than had she just left it alone. Doesn’t she look great? And happy as her pregnant self…in Texas.

 

Thanks, Catherine, for letting me interrupt your meal for a quick photo outside.

 

Cheers.

Pregnant in Paris

Pregant In Paris

Photography by Jennifer Skinner

While visiting Paris for a Maternity, Baby and Kids fashion show this summer, I couldn’t help but notice pregnant women in Paris. Of course, I notice pregnant women everywhere I go, but summertime in Paris brings everyone outside enjoying the city. Here are three of the many I found delightfully pretty while pregnant in Paris. Perhaps it was their carefree walk, their fashion simplicity, the smiles on their faces, as if pregnancy were not a burden or in the way of their day. I suppose the term is a certain “Je ne sais quoi” which really only translates to “I don’t know what.” But I think I do know what… their fashions were easy, feminine and beautifully simple. And they were happy, as their pregnant selves… in Paris.

 

Thank you, Kossiwa, Alessia and Eleanor for allowing me to stop you from your day and photograph your lovely selves.

 

Cheers.
