Thursday I had a calibration meeting at work with a few other supervisors other than my own.  I thought that this would be a great time to wear my newest maternity clothing item: a pair of black dress pants with a full belly panel.  I purchased these from Wal-Mart, of all places, a few weeks ago with returning to the classroom in mind.

I put some outfits together last Sunday for the week and I was really happy to get back to pre-planning outfits.  I went through my closet and grabbed all of the tops that I can still make work and the handful of pants that I have.  Many of my outfits this week have featured a long tanktop with a cardigan and either leggings or skinny jeans.

These black dress pants worked really well and I can tell that they are going to be an important part of my Fall wardrobe.  I was even thinking about getting another pair in grey or khaki.  They are a touch long so I did have to wear them with these black ballet flats that have the slightest bit of a wedge to the heel.  Then, I went with a striped silky tanktop and added a black cardigan.  I had originally picked a coral colored short-sleeved cardigan but I didn’t think that it looked right.  I thought the black made the outfit more dressy and pulled everything together.  I went with my silver watch and black flower earrings.  I also went with a dramatic burgundy lip.  I do wish that I had taken more time to style my hair, but oh well.

What do you think?  Do you like this outfit?  Here are a few other ways that I’ve worn this top:
