Archive for the ‘teal’ category

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!

WooHoo!

I mentioned in my last post that I had a goal of doing my hair, makeup, and wearing a cute outfit all on the same day.  So, last Friday I was selected to attend a quarterly round table meeting with my boss’ boss and represent my team.  So, naturally I wanted to look more polished and professional than I do on an everyday basis.  That’s sort of the great thing and the worst thing about working in a call center– no one see’s you so if your hair is sticking up in all directions and there’s toothpaste crusted on your shirt it can be your own secret.

I started with navy trousers and then added this printed blouse.  It’s new and I thought that it paired really well with these pants then to keep it more Summery I chose a yellow cardigan.  I added an oversized gold watch and navy pumps to complete the look.

I mentioned in a previous post that I recently bought some new clothes and one of the items that I bought are a pair of flowered pants.  I was super-excited to wear them as a nod to the first day of Spring.  I had planned to wear them with another new item, my chambray shirt, but the look didn’t come together quite like this.  Instead, I paired them with a sleeveless teal shell that I got for Christmas and my navy blue boyfriend cardigan.  I had some issues with what shoes I wanted to wear and in the end I didn’t really have the time that I wanted to decide or try other options because I would have been late to work.

I felt pretty great in the outfit, but after looking at the photo I think that the proportions are a bit off.  I think that I look top heavy and something with a slimmer silhouette would have been better.  Oh well.
