WhatIWore: Here’s one of the later additions to my maternity wardrobe, a pretty polka dot knit that kinda sorta reminds me of Julia Robert’s wardrobe in Pretty Woman. I’m feeling more pregnant than ever! Baby is growing right on track and packing on the pounds and I’m perfecting the art of waddling gracefully. Despite slowing down, I feel great!
WhatIWore: If you’ve read What I Wore for even a little while, you’ve probably noticed that I wear a lot of hats, many of them marked self made. My first experience in hat making was a two week section of a costuming class (which also covered gloves, corsets and tutus) back in college. Then my book club read this memoire in January of 2013 and I was inspired to get back into millinery.
I hacked my way through it. I bought new and vintage blocks (wooden hat forms). I watched YouTube videos. I used a lot of trial and error. While the end results were good enough, I didn’t really know what I was doing.
And last Thursday, I made a step towards changing that.
WhatIWore: Each season I attempt to mix a few new trends into my established wardrobe. I would have loved to play around with cut outs, lace panels and mixed textures, but as any pregnant gal knows, maternity clothes aren’t cheap, so I’ve been going with basics instead. But that doesn’t mean I can’t day dream!
I must confess to you guys: While I might be just browsing now, I’ve been saving for a big shopping spree once baby arrives!
I’ve gone to NordstromRack.com for a morning of play shopping these minimal femme looks. See my inspiration above for streamlined silhouettes in pretty shades of white and gray accented by exagerated sunglasses. With price points between $26-$80 I might even buy something in my pre-baby size (or maybe one size up?) Just like the brick and mortar stores, quantities are limited, so if you love it, don’t hesitate!
Heads Up! This post was brought to you by Nordstrom Rack, one of my favorite places to find designer pieces at a major discount (and now… online!) Thank you for supporting the brands that make What I Wore possible.
