Do you ever look through your wardrobe and feel totally blah thinking you have absolutely nothing to wear? Well change it up! Shop your closet and re-style what you already own. Wear the outfit with different shoes, and accessories. Add a blazer, a scarf or a cardigan. Think about how to belt it differently and what other colors would match the current palette.
That’s the idea behind my Style Diary series where I style 1 dress, 1 skirt, 1 top multiple ways. Here’s a new example using my versatile, camel- colored Shoshanna dress bought at Saks. The classic cut and neutral color lends itself as a timeless basic that I can wear endless ways.
Today (at 6months pregnant), I wore the dress all layered up cuz darnit it’s getting cold in NY! The brown tights featured here however were not made for my giant belly. Therefore, the waistband kept falling for it failed miserably to stay anywhere near my my protruding belly. Unable to stay afloat on top of my giant waistline, slowly through the day with each step, the waistband rolled lower and lower and lower.. so much so that the crotch was practically between my knees making me feel like I had just taken a dump in my tights. Note to self, invest in some maternity tights! Here I am looking perturbed just thinking about how uncomfortable the tights were.
Pictured above is the Gianfranco Ferre fur-trimmed swing coat that my mom loaned me over Thanksgiving break. I topped my outfit today with it. It’s the perfect maternity coat since it will grow with my expanding belly! The suede chocolate booties were a TJMaxx find.
For a spring-ier look, I added this coral scarf that I bought in Thailand, a contrasting lime green clutch and spikey leopard heels.
These shoes are KILLER. They’re sexy, edgy and dangerous weapons for your feet. Mostly though they will KILL your feet! I can’t stand in them for longer than 1hour before wanting to wimper in a corner and beg for a massage. Alas, they’re so beautiful I can’t get rid of them either.
