gold, green, coral

DSC_8479Today’s outfit features one of my very favorite color combinations: gold, (olive) green, and coral.

DSC_8471I’m pretty sure I originally got the idea from this pin, from way, way back. Thanks, Audrey!

DSC_8484Now I’m trying to think of more ways to wear this color palette throughout the spring…any ideas?

needs improvement

DSC_6714I pinned this look several months ago, but I had been “saving” it as an outfit idea until after pregnancy. I finally decided to re-create the look last week…only to discover that the pieces in my closet could use a little updating.

DSC_6708In fact, it was this outfit that prompted the creation of my shopping list post last week. As you can see, both the pants and the denim jacket are looking a little tired (OK, and I am too–a one-month old infant will do that to you!). As a result, the re-created outfit is not quite what I imagined it would be. Whomp, whomp. I guess I’ll have to try again once I’ve found the perfect items from my wishlist!

navy + mustard

DSC_5152When I first got dressed on this particular morning, I had just paired this pin dot dress with my mustard scarf and my pearl earrings. But something about it seemed too “flight attendant”-esque for my taste. So I ditched the pearl earrings and added my trusty denim jacket.

DSC_5147I’m not sure I totally love the end result, but it suited my needs for that day just fine. I’m running out of creative styling ideas for my maternity staples (such as this navy dress). I need to get the creative juices flowing for these last 7 weeks or so!

burgundy + denim

DSC_4974Well, we’ve officially entered that fickle time of year–you know, when it’s 50 degrees in the morning and 85 degrees in the afternoon. Such a pattern makes it pretty difficult to figure out what to wear, never mind the fact that I have a bowling ball strapped to my front.

DSC_4969Enter: the denim jacket. I’ve been wearing this thing a lot lately, well, even more than usual. It’s the perfect in-between; heavier than a cardigan but lighter than a coat. So be prepared to see it in quite a few outfits over the next week or so!

You can see other ways I’ve styled my denim jacket (pre-pregnancy) in this re-mix post!
