Brandon’s cousin Chris is getting married this month and we’ll be traveling out to Iowa to attend the wedding. If I could still wear dresses with a defined waist, I probably would have gone with this silver dress, but I’m definitely in need of a maternity style now. Finding an inexpensive but cute dress to wear was easier than I thought it would be, so I built a whole outfit around it.
I already have the sequin clutch but if you’re looking for one, similar styles usually pop up on eBay. I’m going to wear simple sparkly earrings to add some more shine to my outfit. It IS a special event after all – I should have just a little bling, right?
I love Isaac Mizrahi’s Patent Oxfords, and they’ll look great with black thigh high stockings. And because no outfit of mine is complete without some kooky accessory that Brandon will think is silly, I think the Fall Corsage with Migrating Blue Bird will look smashing attached to a hair clip or headband. :)
I’m rapidly outgrowing my clothes and I’m going to need a new winter coat.
Should I buy a maternity coat, or can I get by with a roomy swingy coat in a larger size? I’m due in April, which means I may be wearing it right up to the end. Chicago winters tend to stick around well into spring.
I tried on the Ponte Pleated Dress from Target the other day and it is so flattering, I knew right away that I’d include it in the October style post. And of course I paired it with my headband from Love, Lulu Mae (I think they take custom requests if you’d like a similar style).
The olive green Frye shoes from Urban Outfitters look perfect for fall, and I’d pair them up with some cute green tights. The bag from J.Crew is beautiful, but I’m not sure what they mean when they say “it only looks expensive”… it’s $500. That’s definitely going to remain a wish list item.
Do give the dress a try though (it’s only $25), especially if you’re on the curvy side. Very becoming.
