Greyscale

Wrap dresses have been a surprise staple for me during pregnancy. As I've gotten bigger, I've been waiting for them to not fully cover my belly, but I keep being pleasantly surprised. This one was a gift from a friend, and I can't wait to wear it when I'm not pregnant since it's such a simple piece to style. 









Dress: GIfted (Old Navy), Sandals: Solestruck (Yes), Tank: Hand-me-down,
Sunglasses: Noto, Necklaces: DIY

As I mentioned in this post, I finally took the time to make a bunch of necklaces I've been meaning to make for a while now. These two were part of that spree. The skull wrap-around necklace was loosely based off a necklace I saw in a shop window. I like the one I made, but I think I need to swap out the cord, as this cord doesn't stay tied for long. When I wore it, I felt like I was constantly re-adjusting it, and that's just no fun.

Red and Blue

Sometimes, when I'm getting dressed, I go a bit overboard. Also, I sometimes get dressed without proper lighting, which leads to mixed up hues of one color. 















Blazer, Shoes: Hand-Me-Down, Dress: LulaRoe Julia, Scarf: Thrifted, Sunglasses: Call it Spring


Like this outfit totally didn't need the scarf, but for some reason I had to wear it this day. Also, none of the reds in this outfit match, but for whatever reason, when I was getting dressed, they all seemed like a good idea together. 

Oh well, live and learn (or don't because I wore these shoes again with dress earlier this week).

Pinch Hitter

I've been lucky that I haven't had to dress up too much for work during my pregnancy. However, there have been a few client meetings, and this navy blue shift dress has been my go-to staple. I thrifted it earlier this year, and it's come in handy when I've needed it. 











Blazer: Hand-Me-Down, Dress: Thrifted, Oxfords: Bass Outlet, Sunglasses: ReDress,
Necklace: Vintage (hand-me-down)


Like I mentioned, I've worn this dress a few times with different blazers and shoe combinations (once even with tights), and every time it feels fresh and new. Maybe that's because I haven't dressed it down as much as I'd like (jean jacket, bomber, high tops?); maybe not. 

In any event, the real test comes next week when we have clients in town, and I'll be 9 weeks farther along than when these photos were taken. I'll let you know how it goes.

Orange You Glad P3

Or "I like turtles". A few weeks ago, I wore exclusively monochrome outfits. This day was brought to you by the color orange. Sometimes, you just need a little monochrome in your life, right? 





Kimono: LulaRoe Lindsay, Dress: Target, Shoes: Yes (via Solestruck), Big Turtle Necklace: DIY,
Little Turtle Necklace: Jewelry Box Fundraiser, Sunglasses: Big Fun


Recently, I went on a jewelry-making spree, and by "jewelry-making spree", I mean I updated or added chains to a bunch of "beads" I had lying around. This big turtle pendant was one of those "beads". I got this pendant at a swap and knew it would be an easy update. I had to play around with a few different chain options, so this necklace didn't feel like too much, but I got there eventually. It's all about the journey, right?

Legacy Village

Warning: Temporary blindness may occur from the paleness of my legs.

Here are some photos of when my baby bump was barely noticeable, and we got a little silly taking "senior photos".  
















I've said it before, and I'll say it again, navy is a neutral. Pair it with an unexpected color combo like turquoise and magenta, and you're all set (There are definitely other color combos to pair it with. I'm speaking specifically about this color combination).
