WhatIWore: Good (foggy!) morning to you! It sure feels like October when you wake up to a day like this. I didn’t realize how chilly it was outside when I picked out this outfit, but luckily it’s the kind of day that warms up perfectly by noon. I hope?
When I pulled this dress out of the package, I thought whoa! that’s short! But upon trying it on, I think it might be my favorite maternity dress yet! It’s kind of crazy to say something meant to accommodate a growing belly could be so slimming, but this frock somehow does it! Nice!
It’s from a British company, Séraphine (a gift! cheers guys!) that I hadn’t heard of until I asked you all for recommendations on shops you liked for your own maternity clothes. I don’t have a lot of pieces from the UK, but when I wear them, I try to channel a style icon from across the pond. So in thinking what to pair with this, I thought what would Alexa Chung wear?! Over the knee boots? Ok! I like how there’s only a small amount of skin showing between the top of the boot and the hem, which keeps it from looking too young or sexy. Just a cute outfit to start the week!
When: October 3, 2016
Where: Coffee Shop
This outfit also kind of reminds me of what I wore years ago back when I was a single girl in Brooklyn and really getting into taking daily outfit photos. I mean, way way back. As in.. 947 pages back into my blog (from 2008!)
