seraphine 1

Long time no see! I have been taking my sweet time bonding with little Arielle and because of that, most other things gotta give. Unfortunately, this blog is one of them….but I don’t plan on abandoning it! I love the outlet of blogging, so I hope to keep it up when I can. That being said, I finally have a new outfit post for you – my first since being pregnant!

While I was still preggers, Séraphine contacted me to review an item from their collection. They have fabulous maternity wear, but also pieces that will work when you’re not pregnant or after you have your baby. Even Kate Middleton rocked some of their clothing on her trip to New York a few months back!

I had every intention of styling this grey sweater while I still had a bump, but since Arielle decided to come early, that plan went right out the window. When I put it on post baby, I was happy to discover it looked amazing sans bump as well. The zipper detail is my favorite feature and makes the look more put together than a regular old sweater, in my opinion. I chose to wear it slouched off the shoulder and paired it with leggings and sky-high booties. This sweater will work great layered with other pieces, which I can’t wait to style. Check out the rest of the Séraphine collection, whether you have a bump or not!

Christmas Coat

December 22nd, 2014

christmas coat 1

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

snake print pants 5

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.
