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:

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.
