Burgundy and Brown

Posted by writergrll. Comment (0).

Wednesday I continued with my trend of re-wearing all of the outfits from the beginning of the semester that still work this late in my pregnancy.  I first wore this in week 5 of the semester at 25 weeks pregnant.  We are currently in the 13th week of the semester and I am now 33 weeks pregnant– what a difference 8 weeks makes.

Here is how I styled the dress in week 5:

I went pretty simple with a burgundy cami underneath, gold toned jewelry, bare legs, and black ballet flats.  This time around I decided to stick with the burgundy since it’s such a great Fall color.  However, I incorporated it this time with a burgundy t-shirt layered under the dress and burgundy tights.  I was going to also wear a burgundy cardigan but I thought that it would be too in-your-face, so instead I opted to go with a brown grandpa style cardigan and brown ballet flats to tie it all together.  I went with the same oversized gold watch but this time around I went with black and gold earrings.  For my makeup, I went with a bit of a monochromatic burgundy eye look and burgundy stain on my lips.  You might have also noticed that I parted my hair on the other side this morning.  I don’t know why– I just did.  I flipped it over that way when I was blow-drying it and I kinda liked it so I went with it.

Yellow Vibes

Yellow is not a color that is featured heavily in my wardrobe.  It’s not one of my favorite colors and with my blonde hair I often find that it is hard to pull off.  But, I do have a few yellow items and it seems that I’ve gravitated towards the sunshine color lately!  Last week I paired a pastel yellow cardigan with a deep teal jewel toned dress.  Today, I went with a bright yellow blouse anchored by black trousers and a leopard print blouse.

Yellow and leopard print is not a new/wild/creative/out-of-the-box combination.  As you can see, I’ve paired the same yellow blouse with the same leopard print cardigan twice before–once in a professional outfit with a brown skirt and once in a more casual pairing with jeans.  I’ve also done a lighter, pastel yellow sleeveless shirt with the leopard print cardigan, dark wash skinny jeans, and sandals for a Spring-time outfit.  Lastly, I’ve done a gold yellow sweater and a mustard yellow sweater with two different leopard print scarves and skirts.  Knowing that I’ve done this shirt and cardigan combo. before I actually tried my outfit with a Kelly green blouse.  However, that blouse could not accommodate my pregnant body.
