Pregnant in Texas


Pregant In Paris

Photography by Ingrid Carney

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.
