Christmas Coat

December 22nd, 2014

I am still loving this coat that I got for Christmas last year. So much so that I couldn’t wait for the weather to be chilly enough to slip it on. While it is a perfect Christmas coat given the festive color and print, it really works with almost any type of look. I especially love pairing it with basics or leather details. Here I paired it with a favorite grey sweater and black jeans. Funny enough, I realized after I shot this look that I wore almost the exact same outfit on the blog nearly exactly a year ago! I may blame it on pregnancy brain, but it goes to show that classics don’t go out of style.

Grey Felt Hat

December 1st, 2014

I have been in need of a new statement hat for some time now, so when I saw this grey felt hat at Urban Outfitters, I snagged it immediately. The hubs and I were shopping a few weekends ago and I slipped this on in the store and he loved it! I agreed and couldn’t wait to get it home to style it. My first go at it produced this simple but fab look. Sometimes, like with this outfit, one accessory is more than enough. I have had this plain black maxi dress since last Christmas, yet for some reason, I haven’t blogged it yet…better late than never! This is an item I am so glad is working as maternity wear with my bump, and I even wore it on Thanksgiving.

Sage

This sage green top from James Perse has been a closet favorite of mine for years (previously worn here). It is just that item of clothing I turn to in the fall and winter when I want a basic look that I know will be flattering. Imagine my joy this last weekend when I went to put it on and it still fit! Yipee! This time I paired it with some skinny jeans (worn with a belly band) and Ralph Lauren booties. I love the mix of soft neutrals like this sage green paired with black for fall and this look really hits the bill.

Snake Print Pants

November 3rd, 2014

One thing I have managed to do throughout this pregnancy is control the urge to splurge on tons of maternity clothing. It took me several months to grow out of most of my fitted regular clothing, and other (more forgiving) pieces are still working for me. These snake print pants were one of the items I had to splurge on. I paired them with an American Apparel tee that is still managing to fit around my belly. I have found that as my belly gets bigger, I feel more feminine and beautiful in tighter clothing to showcase the bump. Whereas in the beginning when I felt it wasn’t totally obvious that I was pregnant, I was still doing more of the baggy look. It has been a fun journey fashionwise so far and I can’t wait to see it grow more and attempt to dress it along the way.

Floral Tulip Shorts

September 29th, 2014

I am happy the heat is sticking around a bit because that means I can get more use out of some of my summer clothes like these floral tulip shorts. The print is so girly, which makes them really fun to wear! This last weekend to run some errands (like going to look at strollers – ahhhh!) I paired them here with a basic black ruched maternity top from Target. This top is my new fave tee at the moment because of its simplicity and flattering shape. I bought it in a few different colors as well, so I am sure they will be making an appearance on the blog sooner or later.
