Last Monday I was off from work and used the time to run some errands–namely dropping my car off for its 105K tune-up (and then finding out that I also needed rear brakes), preparing for Fall semester, and packing.  I may or may not have mentioned that we are moving mid-September.  At least I think we are.  It’s been a long process of house-hunting and there’s been so many hurdles already that I am steeling myself for other curveballs that come our way.

I am wearing my maternity denim capri’s, a flower printed jersey tank top, and a short-sleeve royal blue cardigan.  I’ve accessorized with my black sandals and silver watch.  I feel like I’ve had this tank top forever and it is so comfortable– it’s soft and stretchy and works well for the baby bump.

Last Friday I ended the week with my flowered pants.  I only wore these a few times before getting pregnant and it’s a bit late in my pregnancy for them, but I made them work.  Luckily, this dark teal sleeveless t-shirt is quite long and covered the waistband of my pants.  Because the top is sleeveless, I added the short-sleeve white cardigan.  I also wanted to lighten up the outfit some.  Additionally, to keep it light and airy I went with my trust black sandals.  For jewelry I went with my silver watch and coral/orange wooden ball earrings.

Here are two ways that I styled these pants before my pregnancy.  Back then, I was able to wear them fully buttoned and zipped.  This time around, I wore them unbuttoned and folded the waist band down so that it laid somewhat flat and under my belly bump.  The long shirt is covering everything that is going on!

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:
