A Pregnant Gal' in DC

I'm Back....

Was away for a while - three months is a pretty long time but apparently that's what I needed in order to come to peace with my growing self, 24.5 weeks today (for you non-pregnant ladies and fellows out there it means 6 and +-half months), and to move with my hubby from our fun city of Tel-Aviv all the way across the globe, to the unknowns of Washington DC. 
This was not planned – the pregnancy, the move to DC was as planned as it gets for my husband and me – so  many habits needed to change immediately, particularly my smoking. It was not enough that my first trimester was hell on earth – all day morning sickness, drastic changes in my taste buds' preferences, fatigue, headaches,  vomiting, not being able to concentrate – I also had to stop my notorious yet very loved habit of smoking.  This was so hard, still is, and is the main reason for my massive weight gain (at least that's what I'm telling myself).  Hell, at least if I can't smoke I can enjoy eating whatever I feel like – lots and lots of cupcakes!

Being pregnant is now starting to narrow down my wardrobe choices and I refuse to wear maternity clothes- I'm sorry but tunics are NOT legitimate clothes! It has to be either a top or a dress, somewhere in the middle just looks bad… I try to wear loose silhouettes and mostly clothes that emphasize my boobs (which are the only upside I can see thus far for this pregnancy, except for the baby of course:)) and hide my belly a bit but are not maternity wear by definition, like this maxi dress from Mango.  
Shoes are a whole different problem - it is so hot here I can only bear walking in my Havaianas flip flops; anything else just makes me mad and sweaty.

I know I'm pretty whiny for only 6.5 months and that the worst is yet to come, but truthfully – could anyone have believed that Washington DC is more hot and humid than Tel-Aviv?! I'm being punished, I know it…

Still, this is a big adventure and I'm very excited about it.
Washington DC here I come, let's see what you've got!

It's Not Easy Being Green....


Spring is here and after my short spring break (or long, depending who's counting) I'm back with a beautiful green dress by Hanit Hen, a very talented Israeli fashion designer, and with my new Courreges sunglasses (original from the 70's!).

Rock 'n' Roll Baby


Meet my beautiful younger sister Shira, usually my photographer but certainly a treat in front of the camera. Shira's figure has been my envy for years - how come I got two logs for legs and hers are these long slender beauties?!?! (ha mom?!) One of my favorite activities is dressing her up even though our tastes are completely different and she's usually not that obedient. This time she went along since she's the one who came up with the rock 'n' roll idea and frankly I'm much more of a 50's housewife than an edgy rocker.

Desperate Housewife


If you've been following my outfits you probably already figured out that my favorite decade in terms of fashion (and my main inspiration while getting dressed) is the 50's. The dress I'm wearing here is an original piece from that time, which I bought on an online vintage store http://www.dressingvintage.com/. The dress came with a matching bolero which was sadly lost in my very messy house, but I've still got the hope of finding it one day…

Book Worm



So my mom bought me a new pair of glasses - in a beautiful shop in San German - Francis Klein.
I know I gave you options of glasses to choose from and asked for your help - though your help was much appreciated, when I saw this pair I forgot about all of the rest ;)
