Although I am pregnant, I’ve been combing Pinterest for outfit ideas– both maternity and non-maternity that I can make work.  It’s wonderful when I find a pair of pants or a top that I wasn’t sure would work and it does.  But, there’s the flip side of that coin when I try on something and it just isn’t going to work, no-how/no-way.

On Tuesday of this week I paired a blush colored blouse with khaki pants.  I knew that the khaki’s would work because I modified them by adding two stretchy panels to the waistband to accommodate my growing baby.  The blouse I thought might work but I wasn’t 100% certain.

The blouse barely worked.  Let’s just say that it probably won’t work in a week or two, but I did get to wear it that day.  I did not go with heels but instead chose my boat style shoes.  I chose to add some jewelry to my look with an oversized gold watch and a double strand white and gold necklace that came in my last Stitch Fix box.

What do you think?  Do you like this outfit?  Is it too simple?  Let me know in the comments below.

Summerize

Monday morning I used the picture on the left as my starting point for my outfit.  In the inspiration photo from Pinterest she is wearing olive-green skinny pants, a black t-shirt, chambray button-up, and a white vest.  She has paired it with leopard print ballet flats, a silver oversized watch, and a cognac purse.  That is a great outfit that I can re-create for Fall but this is Summer so I made some changes.

First, I didn’t need the vest.  I also chose to forego my ballet flats in lieu of a black gladiator sandal.  I thought that it played well off the black t-shirt, was seasonally appropriate, and showcased my freshly painted toenails.  I kept the green pants and chambray shirt but I cuffed my sleeves to make it an elbow-length sleeve.  I kept my jewelry very minimal and simple with a silver watch and silver earrings.

I was really happy with the way that this outfit turned out and even more thrilled when I tried these pants on and realized that they fit quite comfortably at my bump’s current size.  You might be seeing these green pants a whole lot in the next few weeks.  LoL.

Grey and Gold

This super simple outfit is based on a pin from outfitposts.com but I cannot for the life of me seem to find it!  I spent about 15 minutes and then said to heck with it.  It was a bit chilly towards the end of last week with some rain and thunderstorms.  I paired this lightweight grey sweater with a pair of medium wash skinny jeans and brown ballet flats.  To further incorporate warm tones I went with an oversized gold watch and a long gold pendant/tassel necklace.  After putting all of my effort in to my outfit and makeup I didn’t have much time or energy left for my hair so I pulled it back into a low chignon and called it done!
