Bumpin’ in Black

September 11th, 2014

I have just recently started to feel like I can sport tighter fitting clothes and actually look pregnant instead of questionably bloated. The other weekend, I took the opportunity to wear one of my favorite James Perse dresses that I knew would work during pregnancy as well. The ruching on the sides makes it a perfect staple to transition from pre-pregnancy clothing to maternity wear. The basic dress needed some spicing up, so I paired it with bright orange flats I got custom made in St. Tropez a few years ago and some layered jewelry.

I actually caved in and bought some maternity pants and a belly band the other day. I am definitely trying to make my normal clothing work for as long as possible! Stay tuned…

Sheer Floral

I may or may not have two obsessions going on at the moment. One of them is obviously Flash Tattoos, given the last few posts with them. Another is kimonos. I scored several for my birthday in July and am finally getting around to sharing them with you guys! This sheer floral kimono is pure beauty and you would never guess it was a bargain find at Forever 21! With a growing bump, kimonos are a fun way to dress up basics that I own that still fit my belly. I paired it here with a little slip dress from a trip to France several years ago, as well as lots of layered jewelry. If you aren’t already, you can follow me on Instagram to see more pregnancy fashion as I attempt to dress the bump!

Neutrals with Bling

September 2nd, 2014

We recently returned from a trip to South Lake Tahoe, where we stayed at our family’s cabin. Usually, all I feel like wearing while in Tahoe is flowy summer dresses and bikinis. However, one evening there was a bit of chill in the air, so I brought out this boho style top and paired the neutrals with bling. I have been trying to rock my Flash Tattoos before the warm weather is a thing of the past. Here, I paired the basic look with some arm bling in the form of layered bracelets and Flash Tattoos. The look is easy and simple, but with a little glitz.

Turquoise Tribal Tunic

Tribal prints never get old as far as I am concerned and this turquoise tribal tunic is no exception. I especially love that this one can be paired with jeans or leggings… versatility that will make it a nice fall staple to pair with cozy layers. I paired it here with a fun black felt hat and slipped on moccasins in lieu of heels since we were going to be doing a lot of walking that day. The extra details on this top were what sold me on it: unfinished hem, back cutout, cinched waist…it’s all in the details!

Another Floral Maxi

August 25th, 2014

At the same time that I purchased this floral maxi dress, I purchased another floral maxi. They were both too good to pass up and I can always use a good maxi dress. I actually wore this for the first time back on my birthday in July, but have worn it another time since. The slit adds a bit of va va voom while the shape and pattern keep the dress demure and lovely. I will definitely be wearing this dress until the fall chill gets too cold. This one doesn’t lend to layering very well without looking frumpy, so it is definitely a spring/summer staple. Thank god for Indian summers so I can get more use out of this!
