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.
A little bit of a different post today. This weekend my family threw me the most adorable baby shower ever and I couldn’t help but share a few photos that I thought captured the spirit of the event. Some things are too good to not be shared…
Typical maternity outfit? Not so much. But hellooo autumn!!! I’ve been waiting a while for the LA heat wave to subside and it seems like it finally has a tad which allows me to reintroduce boots and sweaters into the mix!
I’d like to preface this post by letting you know that everything I am wearing is quite old and no longer for sale (I hate nothing more than having my heart set on something only to find out that it’s sold out everywhere). This dress is an oldie-but-goodie from H&M and has an artsy-cool print with patches of embroidery and a scoop back with adjustable straps. Perfect piece to just throw on and go.
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.
Is it crazy to say that I splurged on a sweatshirt at H&M? It’s definitely odd coming from me and is unlike my usual “this was a steal at H&M!” but this sweatshirt stared me down in all its beaded glory and I knew I had to have it. I love the colors, the pattern, and the chainmail-like weight of it (yes, it’s super heavy). So, what’s your price limit on an utterly-covet-worthy-but-deep-down-still-just-a-pullover-cotton-sweatshirt?
This dress is proof that I really do keep some affordable items for a long time… this was my favorite piece from Alice Temperley’s collection at Target 7 years ago. Every time I pull it out of my wardrobe, I’m reminded to make smart picks rather than going nuts and stocking up on all designer collaborations I can get my hands on. That being said…
Are you going to shop those collections?
Nothing makes me happier than finding a perfectly-tailored [non-maternity] silk blouse that accommodates a bump perfectly. I got this on sale at a department score closing, but luckily you still can too since it’s marked down on Amazon!
Sorry I’ve been quiet for a while… this little baby has been giving me some trouble the past week! But I’m feeling better and am back at it! Today’s outfit is all about the perforated details – net inserts on the dress and hole-punched athletic-inspired flats!
Slouchy tees are a staple of summer. And since I tend to get cold indoors with the AC on full-blast, I like to keep good lightweight slouchy cardigan with me to throw on top! This one was a bargain and although it’s a ‘cash’ item, it’ll be in my closet for years to come!
