32 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

32 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

I’m eight weeks away from my due date and it’s getting exceedingly difficult to find the time (and energy) to get out for these weekly photos. Not to mention the task of finding a cute getup that will fit my growing belly. I’ve managed to make it all the way to this point without actually buying any maternity clothes… I’m not really into the idea of buying something that I can only wear for a few more weeks, especially considering how overpriced all that stuff is. Once again, I’ll say that it pays to have a closet full of knits.

29 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

29 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

So it’s been a few weeks since our last photograph. We try to dedicate a time slot every Sunday for these outings but some weekends are just too hectic to get it all done. So once again we stayed on the west side and found this cool wall at a bicycle shop in Venice Beach.

I’m wearing a vintage dress that I recently found at Shareen’s Vintage near downtown Los Angeles – that place is amazing. And so is the fruit cocktail print on this dress, which I appropriately wore to my picnic themed baby shower the week before. It’s only a shame I wasn’t able to maintain my watermelon slice manicure that I gave myself for the event… it was pretty sweet.

Come back next week for an update in our ongoing series: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places.

23 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

23 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

Driving through Hollywood one day, I spotted this amazing rainbow-hued mural on the security gate of fine drinking establishment, which luckily for me, appeared to be closed for remodeling. Although it may not be the most intricate or sophisticated of motifs, it’s bright colors and geometric composition make it my favorite in this series thus far. And I think it made for the perfect compliment to my graphic skirt and WkShp tee, which just so happens to feature one of our own Aaryn West designs.

I nearly freaked out when I discovered this giant mural in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles, which was so large and varied that I may come back for another shoot later in this photo series. The Aztec calendar portion was the perfect compliment to the primary colors in my vintage dress, don’t you think?

17 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

17 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

Here I am in one of my all-time favorite dresses, shot across the street from one of my favorite coffee shops in Eagle Rock, The Coffee Table. The dress is from the vintage section of the Topshop flagship store in London. That place is like heaven on a stick, I wish it was all available online for the non-local peeps.
