I don’t know how else to describe this outfit other than “very preppy and Tommy Hilfiger… but much less expensive.” It’s got a little H&M, Zara, and H&M’s Zara-like older sister, COS, which just opened in Beverly Hills last month! Pretty exciting.
I was feeling double outerwear today. Sometimes it can seem a bit bulky, but this trench coat easily accommodates this medium weight denim jacket and the overall look benefits from the added color, different hemline, and texture. To top the outfit off with a little pizzazz, I added my super-glam/super-splurge “razor’s edge necklace” and some snakeskin details.
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.
Can you tell I am feeling colorful today? This shirt dress is pretty subdued and neutral on its own, but with the pink tights, mustard details, and multi-colored satchel, it really comes alive. Perfect for a happy Friday!
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.
An extremely mixed high-low outfit like this can only be averaged to be ‘debit.’ The sweater and shorts were only $32 combined ($7and $25 respectively), but I glammed them up with a more pricey topaz crystal ring and a gold-chained baby satchel.
I consider these burgundy bad boys to be my perfect polished leather ankle boot for fall. Low enough heels to wear all day (even during pregnancy), but enough to give you a little height. I also experimented with some more nail art (color blocking, metallic striping tape, AND pyramid studs!) and stacked on some gold accent rings to draw a little extra attention.
Today’s look is a mix of bargains and some debit-worthy accessories. My mom found this top for me at Marshalls and though it’s not maternity, it has the perfect silhouette to work throughout pregnancy and beyond. I also love the shell buttons, pleating, and embroidery. To add a little whimsical element, I wore my oversized teddy bear necklace (yes, it is made of needlepoint plastic canvas, and yes, something like that can only be found at a Japanese boutique!) and my holographic purse for some shine.
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.
