July 4th festivities were last week but I can’t help but carry forward the stars and stripes theme just a wee bit longer. I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but my recent outfit posts have been more on the “blousy” side. That’s because I have an ever-growing mid section. I am excited to share that hubby and I are expecting our first child in early December! I am about 17 weeks in this picture and finally have enough of a bump to wear tight fit clothing without people being mistakened (hopefully) that I am just out of shape.
Now comes the challenge of getting dressed on a daily basis…don’t get me wrong, I love to get creative with the ways I can dress. So far, I can wear regular clothes in either my pre-pregnancy size or just by going a size up, but finding appropriate work wear has been a little more difficult. My research has shown some really cute things but in my head I am thinking…”Really? You can’t wear that to the office!” Thankfully, my Internet skillz has led me to Isabella Oliver who has nice tailored pieces for the workplace that don’t look like a tent so I splurged on this pencil skirt and a few other pieces – just basics in black for now and reassessing my size and needs at the end of Summer.
For those who have been through the journey, I would love to hear your tips and tricks on staying stylish throughout the whole nine months!
