Alright, on to the ol' up-and-down. I think this is one of the first times I've worn black and brown together, but I think I pulled it off.
Cardigan: Mossimo from Target // Striped shirt: Merona from Target // 'Skirt' that's actually a maternity dress: Liz Lange from Target // Boots: Solanz from Shoe Carnival
Yes, you read that correctly. The 'skirt' I'm wearing is really a maternity dress. I had wanted to winter-fy a dress to see if I could, and today was the perfect day. Here is a picture of me at 24 weeks preggers back in October 2011 sporting this dress (and barefoot and in the kitchen, per a friend's request):
|I added the scarf/sash. It's just a black dress.|
This dress also looked good enough to wear even after all the baby weight was gone. I found one of me from a trip to Houston last June:
This is just my kinda outfit! Looks good when pregnant, looks good when not pregnant, easy to nurse in, doesn't need ironing, and great for ridiculously hot weather. (It was 100° and I was determined to sight-see--my hair, on the other hand, was not so pleased with that decision.) Oh, I also bought it for less than $3 from the--you guessed it--Target clearance rack. Sure hope there's one of those in heaven.
Bonus: I heard you people like outtakes. And as I actually convinced my husband to take the pictures this week (after mass, dinner, and baby's bedtime), there were definitely some outtakes:
|Okay yes, I almost did use that one on the left as my main picture this week, so I'm not sure if it qualifies. My husband had just said that my clothes were all too big for me, and I was rather offended.|
I'm sure you can tell by my expression.
