Revolutionary

Wearing a dress as a skirt, especially when it's chilly out, and you can use that extra layer.







Blazer: Hand-Me-Down, Button-Down: Vintage/Thrifted, Dress: LulaRoe,
Socks: Urban Outfitters, Boots: Zara, Necklaces: Vintage, Gifted, Cleveland Flea



As my wardrobe options get smaller, my styling tricks have to get larger (like my belly, and the baby). The best part about this styling trick (wearing a dress as a skirt) is that anyone can do this (and probably does). I tend to get bored easily with my clothes, so having two ways to wear one piece, even before what I pair it with, is super great. 

What are some styling tricks you all have up your sleeves?

More Lavender

Let's dub this week "the week of Lavender" and be done with it. Deal?







Blazer, Button-Down, Dress: Hand-Me-Down, Earrings: Forever21, Flats: Target




This outfit is one of those instances where the old adage "...before you leave the house, take one thing off" just doesn't apply. Because before I left the house, I added one thing: these pink puff ball earrings. And while this might have still been a perfectly OK #ootd without them, I think these earrings make it that much better. #sorryboutit Coco. 

In other news, as I was typing outfit credits, I realized the bulk of this outfit is all from my great friend, Audrianna, who recently gifted me a bunch of clothes she was getting rid of. Score.

P.S. I have no idea what is going on in that last photo, but thought you all could use a laugh. Enjoy!

Ruffles, Lavender and Overalls - oh my!

I think I've mentioned before how Fridays are the perfect time to experiment a bit with workwear. A few Fridays ago, I tested out a new pair of overalls, and they were really well received.









Blazer, Shoes: Hand-Me-Down, Button-Down, Overalls: Levi's, Sunglasses: Big Fun,
Collar Tips: Cleveland Flea


For whatever reason, I've been searching for a good pair of overalls for my wardrobe. I lucked onto this pair at the Levi's outlet. They sit low enough that I can wear them under my belly, but come up like a regular pair of jeans in the back. Perfection. Even better, I can wear them when I'm not pregnant. Win. Win.

Grandpa Called

Before I got pregnant, I occasionally would think about what I would wear when I was pregnant. Over-size button-downs and skinny jeans/my Levi's 501s were what I thought would make the cut. Pretty much, this exact outfit. But sadly, my belly outgrew my 501s pretty early in my pregnancy, and only one of my three attempts at making maternity jeans really worked out. These are not that pair. 














Button-Down: PacSun, Blazer: Thrifted (Goodwill Akron), Jeans: Hand-Me-Down/DIY,
Shoes: Bass, Sunglasses: ReDress, Necklace: Gifted


These jeans aren't a horrible maternity jean DIY, but I think they will be better when my belly is a little bigger. Luckily, it's been pretty warm since I got too big to fit most of my clothes, so I've been able to wear dresses and skirts (as you've probably noticed). 

I'm not giving up on pants just yet, though.

Windians

It's baseball season again! Which means I can share this #ootd from when the Cleveland Indians were in the World Series last year.











Jean Jacket, Indians Jersey: Thrifted, Culottes: H&M, Lace-Up Flats: Target,
Bandana: PBR Merch

If you are like me and have limited sports paraphernalia, it's always nice to get a little reminder of how you styled such items so that you didn't bore yourself to death wearing a Tshirt and jeans. Not that there's anything wrong with a Tshirt and jeans, but sometimes, it's fun to spice things up a bit.
