I honestly can't believe I can't find a photo of myself wearing this top pre-pregnancy, but it was a favorite purchase last summer. It's Michael Kors, found at Marshall's.

I was delighted that it works equally well with an 8-months along belly. I wore it out for my most recent blogger get-together (with Liz @ Will There Be Cake, Sara @ Running from the Law, Jessica @ I Want Adventure, Alyssa @ My Husband's Watching TV While I'm Watching the Baby, me, Lindsay @ Itz Linz, and Liz @ Ellie & Addie). We went to Time for Dinner and made a bunch of freezer meals - a place I'll probably get to know even better in the months following the baby's arrival - and then to a delicious dinner at Katie's Pizza and Pasta.

I'm also wearing thrifted jeans, thrifted Old Navy ballet flats, sunglasses from Buffalo Exchange, and my favorite necklace of all time - found at the St. Louis Symphony's Gypsy Caravan flea market.

If you haven't been to Gypsy Caravan, you have to go. It's always during Memorial Day weekend, which means I'll probably miss it this year. I always find the best vintage jewelry there, but it has a huge selection of vendors - antiques, handcrafted items, clothing, etc. If you go, either get the early bird tickets or go right when it opens to avoid the crowds and find the best stuff. Plus, it benefits the St. Louis Symphony, an organization near and dear to my heart. The St. Louis Symphony Volunteers, who run the Gypsy Caravan, are some of the most dedicated and generous people in our community.
