Yes, I am wearing these leggings, again.  But, in my defense this is the first time that I have worn them to class.  If you’ve been a long time follower of this blog then you already know that on one of the last days of class with my students I frequently dress down.  This time around, that meant wearing leggings.  This grey shirt is not maternity but it is a 1x plus size.  This is the original way that I wore this outfit but with black boots.  The second time that I wore it I took pictures and shared them with you.  I tried not to look too sloppy by making sure that I did style my hair and do my makeup.

Baby Class

The other day I was at Wal-Mart and I broke down and bought a pair of their super-soft jersey leggings and a 1x plus sized top to go with them.  The leggings were $6 and the shirt was $7, so all-in-all I spent $14 for a new outfit.  And you know what?  I am super glad that I did!  It has been harder and harder to get dressed lately.  I’ve got 2 more days of class and then 2 days of exams that I’ll need outfits for and then a few things here and there.  Other than that, I can pretty much just live in my pajamas the rest of the time.

I wore my new outfit to work on Friday and I was not only comfortable but I felt somewhat pulled together and cute.  In fact, I wore the leggings (with a different top) again on Saturday to Baby Class.  My husband and I chose the expedited class that just focused on Labor and Delivery for First Time Parents since it was Saturday and Sunday from 9-3:30.  That time fit in to our schedules way better than the other option of 4 weeks in a row for a few hours each night.

I didn’t snap any pics of the leggings with the grey shirt that I wore them with first, but I did get a few of the second version of the outfit.

I finished off this super-comfy look with my silver watch, silver hoop earrings, and black calf-height boots.  What do you think?  Are you a fan or is it too much of a cliché?

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.
