Soon Maternity Challenge: Week One

Storytime:
When I was pregnant with Sebastian last fall Soon Maternity kindly asked me to take part in their first annual style challenge along with some other pregnant bloggers. It took me about .08 seconds to eagerly agree but by the time the clothing arrived from the Soon headquarters in Australia ... Sebastian had already made his earthly debut. 99% yay and 1% hiss. I forgave him and eventually got over it and shipped the clothing to the pretty Kelsey Williams and guess what? She won! As luck would have it ... Soon Maternity is hosting the challenge once again (!!!) and this time this baby decided to cooperate and stay put through arrival of the adorable maternity clothing and all the photo taking. 100% yay and 0% hiss.

Over the course of the next four weeks you can vote for your favorite maternity looks via Soon Maternity's Facebook page.


I won't beg you to vote for my photos but I can't promise not to take it personally if you don't. Just kidding. The competition is a little to a lot intimidating and I'll never know if you vote for one of The Others.

As soon as you vote (by liking your favorite look) you'll be in the running to win a $150 dollar gift card to Soon Maternity. So ... you don't have to be entirely selfless with your good deed for the day ... there's a little something in it for you.

And without further rambles ... here's the first outfit:
(Don't worry, neither of the kids emancipated themselves from the Camp and I promise that I am really pregnant with number three ... my secretary, Sebastian sent over the wrong info as we are still working on our counting. He'll get it soon, I hope.)

I'll (as least annoyingly as possible ... mom's honor) keep you posted when the other outfits are posted and would be SUPER appreciative of your vote in the mean time. Thanks so much! 


And thanks to Soon Maternity for hosting and letting me take part en el challenge!

  1. Can't vote because you aren't cupping the belly. I thought we talked about this.

    But I really can't vote because I'm not on FB.

    Stupid technology timesucks.

    1. I will log on with all my children's illicit FB accounts to vote in your stead, Martin.
      You're welcome.

  2. Of course I voted for you, silly goose! (But it was with less enthusiasm than anticipated because your hands were not forming a heart around your enlarged abdomen area. I'm starting to worry about this baby.)

  6. This is so fun!! You probably told them you were on #3 and they likely assumed it was a typo since there is NO WAY someone can be on kid 3 and still look so fab. But you do!

  11. Voting complete...and you get extra bonus points for coordinating the boots "perfectly against the autumn leaves." Lovely! :)

  12. You look absolutely stunning Grace, like one who graces the cover of a maternity clothes catalogue (rather than a tired, uncomfortable wearily pregnant woman living on chalk flavoured antacids). I am also in Australia, with this Soon maternity gig you may end up with quite an Aussie following

    1. Bless you, Geraldine! I've always loved that name. You are super sweet. Maybe I'll come visit you. Too much, too soon?

    2. You are too kind Grace, though I can take zero credit for the name. You would all be very welcome, although I sadly suspect the 14+ flight with offspring in tow is a form of torture you might want to delay enduring for a little (long) while
