I 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.
In 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!
They might not be the most flattering things for a woman who is 8+ months pregnant…but I gotta say that I am loving oversized cardigans these days. I’m pretty sure that this tribal sweater makes me look ginormous, but I really don’t care.
On this particular day, I decided to style this cardigan in a way similar to one I saw on Pinterest–with a gray tee and olive pants. I liked everything about the Pinspiration photo except the shoes–strappy sandals don’t really make sense with a chunky cardigan (at least to me). So I swapped out the fancy shoes for–what else?–black wedges.
I gotta say–I’m pretty excited that it’s finally cool enough around here to wear boots and booties! I was getting pretty bored with my usual sandals and wedges.
For the momentous occasion of “first time wearing boots since March,” I chose my beloved cognac ankle boots. They always pair well with leopard, so I threw on a leopard scarf, along with my neutral staples. I actually kind of regretted the scarf in the end–I had to give a presentation that day, and I was so sweaty by the end of it! Performance anxiety + scarves = bad combination.
