Pregnancy Style Recap

As my due date approaches I wanted to get a recap up of what I wore and some style tips during pregnancy.  I think one of the best pieces of advice I took was don’t be afraid to wear pre-pregnancy clothes and incorporate them into your pregnancy pieces.

There are some non-negotiable pregnancy pieces for me.  Leggings and jeans that go over the belly.  Everyone is different but I couldn’t get comfortable (in later pregnancy) with elastic/waistbands digging into my lower tummy.

Pictures and items will be list left to right, top row than bottom row.

Blazer Series: Part 2

 

 

Since I started this series I decided I should publish a little “How to” for blazers.  They are so versatile but sometimes that can be really overwhelming when creating an outfit.  So here ya go!

Step One: Blazing it up. Find a great structured blazer.  If you don’t have one already I would recommend black or navy as they are very neutral and can go with many blouse options.

Step Two: Top of your game. A soft blouse/ t-shirt or sleeveless shirt to go under the blazer. For a more casual occasion I go with a plain t-shirt and for a dressier occasion a blouse. Feel free to spice it up with a pattern or a bright color! Just remember your shoes and accessories will need to compliment one another.

Step Three: A mean jean. A well fitting pair of jeans.  Remember jeans can be colored or regular.  Whatever you feel most comfortable in or whatever color is suiting your mood! I prefer a dark wash denim with my black blazer. It gives it that dressed up crisp look. But when I am going more casual a light wash jean is my “go-to”.

Step Four: Pump it up.  A nice pump really helps balance the jean and blazer look.  Gives you classy and edgy look. Go for a fun color (magenta) or pattern (leopard)!

Step Five: Bling, Bling.  A statement necklace is the icing on this outfit.  If you haven’t gone bold with your shoes, or top here is where you can make your impact.

Step Six: Show em’ what you got.  Have fun in your new outfit!

Lots of new series are on the docket this year.  Starting off with one of my favorites! Blazers add such a great addition to any outfit.  They are perfect to dress up a casual outfit or structure to a flouncy top!

With Autumn officially beginning I have a slew of outfits to show you over the next few weeks! If you follow my Instagram you saw I have I hit it big when I went to the outlets in San Marcos.  The sweater from that trip was the base of this outfit and I built from there!
