I loved this sweatshirt from the moment I set my eyes on it and its raffia-covered front. I’m always a sucker for interesting textures, so palm fronds dyed black and white were too new and fascinating for me to pass up.
Finally we are getting into sweater weather again! Today’s outfit is all about unexpected layers and taking a traditional summer piece and making it fall-appropriate. This sleeveless silk shirt dress was one of my favorite things to wear at the beginning of my pregnancy because the unique sleeve details easily disguised my little bump. Though it no longer serves its belly camouflage purposes, I still love wearing it in the cooler weather layered over a neutral turtleneck sweater and some over-the-knee boots.
Now that it’s November, I am officially on high baby alert. Sure, she’s not technically due for a few weeks, but my bags are packed and waiting by the door just in case! This knit sweater dress isn’t maternity, but was one of my happy closet finds (things that I discovered still fit me) once I started pulling out knitwear for the cooler temperatures. I threw on a blazer to make it a little more work-appropriate, and paired it with a creamy-peach and orange purse to add some fun complementary colors.
This silk dress is one of my favorite easy go-tos for work – with or without a bump (I just tie the sash in a different place!). To offset the bold pattern, I opt for sleek polished leather accents around my neck, on my feet, and in my hand.
This is my latest dinner date outfit. (Trust me, it’s not easy finding outfits that make you feel attractive when you’re 7 months pregnant!) One thing I know for certain… aside from drawstring sweatpants, jersey pencil skirts are a pregnant girl’s best friend. Sure they are generally viewed as being quite casual, but add some patent stilettos and they’re good enough for a night out.
This little belly controls me. Last night I went home and cooked for 4 hours straight (I ended up making two meals because I couldn’t make up my mind!). Luckily this flowy dress comfortably accommodates my newly-found roundness and makes me feel… well… a little more glamorous!
It’s the happiest time of the year (or at least ONE of the happiest)… we are in the peak of summer sale season!
Alright New York, I know I rave about how much better LA’s weather is, but I am so jealous that you get the first & Other Stories store in the US. For those of you unfamiliar with the label, it’s H&M’s more grown up, chicer sister company that is slated to open on Broadway later this year.
…this is what I’d wear to save people from fashion disasters.
When you have a shirt like this, you don’t need any jewelry or flashy accessories. The first time I laid eyes on its poofy sleeves, cowl neck, and round gunmetal buttons, I knew it was a keeper.
