2nd Chance

After my lousy review of this flower printed maternity top last month I decided to give it another go.  First, I sewed back on the button the fell off the sleeve cuff and then I removed each of the buttons at the collar and re-sewed them on more securely hoping it would make a difference.  But, it didn’t.  I thought that since the buttons were sewn on loosely that may have been what was causing them to slip out of their button holes at the slightest bit of movement.  It turns out that I was wrong.  I think that the buttons are simply too small and dainty for their button holes.  So, I didn’t fight the buttons and just wore the top of the shirt open.  I did layer a magenta camisole underneath for modesty and to bring a pop of color in to the outfit.

I paired this loose and flowy top with my dark wash skinny maternity jeans that I gave a large cuff.  To accentuate my bump and sort of make it clear that I’m pregnant and not just gaining weight I added this braided navy belt.  For accessories I went with royal blue and gold earrings, an oversized gold watch, and dark purple ballet flats.  I wasn’t quite sure about adding in another color to the mix with the ballet flats but they are so dark in color that I don’t think they stick out and look weird.  Or, am I just fooling myself?

Anyway.  After giving this top a second chance it is still a dud.  I’ll probably wear it a few more times, but I certainly would not recommend it or purchase a similar top.
