Style: March ’09

Spring is almost here! Maybe that’s why I’m loving bright kelly green these days…

Style: March '09

For my fellow pregnant ladies, this maternity smocked shirt dress is pretty cute. And for everyone else? This silk pleated dress is beautiful, but this keyhole dress is really sweet and more casual (though I’d lose the belt).

I love wearing big, bold jewelry. This bracelet can stand on its own, or maybe with some silver earrings that complement it but don’t don’t compete. And I’m a fan of pattern (surprised?), so I’d add a cute fabric bag and then some architectural shoes to finish off the outfit.

    I really really love these Style collages you put together. They are so inspiring.

    I think those shoes are Frye’s Andrea MJ (according to the link) instead of Mia. Fabulous find though, love the Etsy purse!

    Fantastic Style board, as usual! I just ordered the Target dress – I wear that gray one you recommended last year all the time.

    Are you going to start doing baby Style boards? That would be too cute.

    Hope your 3rd trimester is going well! Becoming more and more immobile is frustrating at times…

    That dress almost makes me wish I was going to be pregnant longer so I could wear it (I’m almost due). The whole look is absolutely perfect! I adore your fashion sense (as well as your design sense, of course). I’ve been so inspired to include more color and pattern into my wardrobe thanks to you!

    Angeline, thanks for pointing that out! I was originally going to link to a pair of
    shoes by MIA. I liked the Frye shoes a bit more, but I forgot to change the credit (I’ve fixed it now though).

    I wore kelley green to Temple on Saturday and noticed about a dozen other people also wearing green. Someone came up to me and asked if we did it on purpose! I love your fashion features and wish you did them once a week. I just wish I could wear heels because the ones you choose are always adorable.

    I’m not pregnant, but that purse and shoes are right up my alley! And I’m loving the pairing of the green with classic black, white and silver accessories. You are a woman after my own heart :)

    I love kelly green, and this little number is just adorable!
    Even for non-expecting women, breezy empire line dresses are a must in summer, as they’re so confortable and look great with both flat or high heeled sandals.
    Just lovely!

    I have a great bag like that from Old Navy. I think I got it about three years ago because I loved the way the black and white looked with Kelly Green. It’s such a cute combination.

    grrr… you may be responsible for Target selling out of the keyhole dress!

    I, too love your story boards…they must be quite popular, too. Because the the Old Navy and Target dresses you featured are now sold out, too funny.
