Little Nugget a growth in progress ...

My, my,my, how the time certainly moves swiftly when you look back.

Today I'm officially 22 weeks almost there with little nugget. I wanted to share my what I wore for the past 21 weeks. As most know my "fashion sense " has not been the traditional but, I've found a warm and welcoming community here. I've been very grateful every step of my journey. So thank you all for journeying with me.

We start with the 1st Picture I was the M.C. at a Thrift Fleek Market event and Fashion show. I could barely contain my secret doing a few of those HPT and only telling 1 person. Really enjoyed this fit. If one style could describe me. I would say my love of the peplum top. I don't think I will ever tire of them. Tem made this fab skirt and my body started to change so very quickly.

Suprise we are having a real person. Barely visible but, there is little nugget. Strong heartbeat and 1st Dr's visit. Simple denim dress minimum jewelry but, oh baby those pleather boots with lucite heels! My favorite alas I will be passing them on to another person. As Angie says. "Dress for the life you have." I'm trying to do that now.

Here comes the peplum again. This time with my supper wide Bells. These pants are some kind of lycra so comfy yet dressy.

Starting to feel not so much like me. Everthing was happinng so fast and it starts to reflect in what I wore. I think I was falling into a funk. Still looking cute tho. Lol

There was a bit of a break between 4-5. I was trying to find my center in everthing and my 1st real day off was Veterans day. I voluntered at a wonderful handcrafted hat store called Sconi Wear and my friend hand crafted me 2 beatific dresses. The 1st I wore on This day.

Full on thrift. Really enjoyed this whole Veterans weekend and I think it reflects in what I wore.

Pretty in Pink! The only pink thing I have in my whole wadrobe. Well, my whole house but, I love it so much. Again this was worn to church on sunday. Made by my friend Oshun Bey and my custom made hat made by Sconi.

Female version of Shaft. Another thrifted look on a Windy day. With my pleatather thrifted jacket and Combat boots.

Custom and thrifted. Overalls were made for me before baby. I call this finding my stride. Loved this fit and baby was really growing.

Overalls are my thing. Beautiful fall day.

Pic.11 & 12-
Church vintage. Strech is a pregnant woman's friend. This dress goes with everthing. It will last the whole winter. I felt like such a lady. Little nugget is growing so big.

Pic 13-
Little nugget and overalls once again. Drop crotch harem overalls to be exact made by Tem.

Pic 14
Is out of order forgive me. I had to include it this thrifted cashmere cape is everything and Tem to the rescue once again creating pregnancy pants with that belly panel for me.

Community baby shower. Late night out for this soon mom to be. Lol.

Pic 16-
So just 4 more months to go.

Thank you all once again for rocking steady with me. GOD willing the rest of this journey will go well. If so we will be introducing little nugget to the world mid to late april.

Until next time. Thanks Family.

    Hells bells! You are one stylish mama-to-be. So much to love in all your outfits. I love how you vary silhouettes, I love how you mix up dresses and skirt looks. I love all the colour and texture and jewellery too. It's a feast for the eyes Ledonna.

  • Maneera replied 3 years ago

    Wow! Your amazing maternity style blows me away, Donna. You're looking better than ever. I particularly love #8 & 12.

  • Firecracker replied 3 years ago

    These are great photos and outfits, Ledonna. I really love your overalls, especially the light ones in 13, which are so avant-garde looking. And your ladylike black and white checked jumper is another standout for me. Throughout all of them, you are staying so stylish! Thanks for sharing.

  • El Cee replied 3 years ago

    Li'l Nugget's Mommy is one very chic lady. Awesome ensembles all around. My favorite is your houndstooth dress outfit (#11) -- that one should be on a magazine cover. Thanks for putting together this "Thrift In Time" slide show. Fabulous!!!

  • Chris987 replied 3 years ago

    Wow, what amazing style you have! Love the journey too, and especially Mr Grumpy Cat at the end! I'm with El Cee in loving that houndstooth one..

  • rachylou replied 3 years ago

    How fun! You should put these in an album. Your little one will enjoy looking at photos from 'the old days,' lol.

    Btw, my brain vision is so bad. In number 6, I thought your arm was midriff...I was all, *Is Ledonna strippin' down in the cold!!! WTH!!!* Then I scrolled down and back to look at the pics again, and all of a sudden I saw an arm!!

    This reminds me of when I was maybe two and my uncle got me from the babysitter. I was expecting my dad - and all pant legs look the same. And he looks a lot like my dad in the first place. When he picked me up, I wasn't sure if he was dad...and decided what the heck, he must be my dad. Lol. Then a few years ago he mentioned this to me, and I learned No, That Wasn't Dad.


  • Kate replied 3 years ago

    Oh dear Lord, they are all so fab...peplums, denim coat, houndstooth w/ red, SHAFT!, that I'm just just going to holler out overalls because you know, OVERALLS, the one garment to rule them all.

    Go team Ledonna-Tem-Nugget! Personally speaking, I can't wait for April. Easy for me to say, I know.

  • cindysmith replied 3 years ago

    You look radiant and beautiful! You always have such wonderful outfits, and I enjoy seeing them

  • Janet replied 3 years ago

    How amazing are you! I especially love that week 17 leather coat, and your houndstooth outfits are amazing too. I love your adventurous sense of style. 

  • celia replied 3 years ago

    You look amazing in every single one of these outfits. I had to smile at your reference to Shaft female version.
    You do rock the overalls and the houndstooth dress fits you beautifully.
    Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

  • AJ replied 3 years ago

    You are still rocking your style!  The overalls created by Tem in #13 are FAB and should be duplicated in more colors ASAP!  :)  I also like the dress in #11.  

    Sounds like the months are going by well.  Hang in there for the home stretch!  It will go by quickly and you will be holding your little nugget before you know it.  SQUEE!  So excited for you and Tem!

  • Ledonna N. replied 3 years ago

    Thank you all family I love just sharing. As I look back it went so quickly if I can get past winter it will be all good.

    Rachylou your a bottle of Sunshine.

    AJ & Kate we are so looking forward to meeting nugget.

    Thank you everyone.

  • crazyone replied 3 years ago

    Rachylou, as usual, you crack me up :-)

    Ledonna, you should totally print out an album of your maternity style, I think it would be a fun keepsake to have around and show to Little Nugget one day :-)  I love the peplum outfit and the leather jacket especially.  Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!

  • JAileen replied 3 years ago

    You have some fun looks here! My favorites are wks 19 and 20. Best wishes to you and the nugget.

  • Tanya replied 3 years ago

    Wow, Ledonna, you are one of the most stylish pregnant ladies I have ever seen.  You are totally knocking it out of the park and the leather coat outfit is simply divine.   I am big fan of the Grumpy Cat, too :)

  • BrieN replied 3 years ago

    You look amazing -- and radiant! I love the houndstooth!!!

  • Angie replied 3 years ago

    You are a stylish maternity inspiration, Ledonna. I'm wowed - especially by your stellar attitude. You are inspirational.

  • unfrumped replied 3 years ago

    These are all such fun outfits! I agree # 11 is the " magic dress"- so chic but versatile.

  • Bijou replied 3 years ago

    Simply gorgeous - we are very lucky to have you in our family! Pregnancy is funny, on one hand it feels so long (because there is so much anticipation on meeting the little person that will transform your life) and yet it also flies by. This is one fabulous post and a reminder that even in pregnancy, you can get clothes that will last beyond that. Each and every outfit you have posted, I would love to wear.

  • Summer replied 3 years ago

    Fabulous, Ledonna!  All amazing looks, but I love 6,11 and 12.

  • Sterling replied 3 years ago

    You DRESSED fabulously.  My favorite was the houndstooth, but there were so many ensembles that were too cool for words.   Wishing you the best. 

  • Ledonna N. replied 3 years ago

    Thank you all so much. It's been a beautiful experience.

  • MTBGirl replied 3 years ago

    You look fab Ledonna! I can't pick a favorite but if I had to it'd be between #3 and #9. Little Nugget is very lucky!

  • lpr200 replied 3 years ago

    What awesome outfits with so much style-- plus you look so happy!

  • shevia replied 3 years ago

    Amazing! A joy to watch your progress with LN!

  • MsMaven replied 3 years ago

    Killer, all of them, especially 11 & 12. 

  • Momo replied 3 years ago

    Love ❤️

  • Aquamarine replied 3 years ago

    You are a fab mum-to-be! Love your style and attitude. Enjoy the last few months.

  • Ledonna N. replied 3 years ago

    Awe thank you all so much I had to share my joy.

  • goldenpig replied 3 years ago

    Yes! I love your maternity style. Your little nugget is going to be stylish straight out of the gate given the fashion quotient of his/her parents! Hard to choose favorites but I think 6 & 8 are especially super chic!

  • Helen11 replied 3 years ago

    Super stylish. I love that you know your own style and have Tem to create perfect items for you. Lucky baby Nugget!
