I love fall! Most of my clothes were bought last fall and fall is my dominant season (mild winters and foggy summers) so it's nice to finally break out the layers and fun coats!
I managed to combine two "looks" from a WIW post from last season--Old Lady and Librarian--into one outfit! Here's the previous WIW from last January--fun to see how the same clothes looked on me before I was pregnant!
It's also a variation on another pregnant in plum outfit I did with the coat a few weeks ago:
The plaid skirt is a fit and flare with a fitted waist. I had to hike it all the way up to just under my boobs, but I managed to zip it up (barely)! With the huge belly, the midi skirt has turned into a high-low hem, but fortunately that's in style now, right? And I removed the faux fur collar from the coat because the outfit was already so ALGO and I wanted a cleaner line and a more preppy vibe. This is more print- and texture-mixing than I think I've ever done, but I think it still works because the colors are similar. I counted at least six different patterns/textures--purple Anthro tweed coat, grey H&M textured cardigan, dotted cream Anne Fontaine blouse with ruffles, plum and rose H&M plaid skirt, velvet floral Fossil bag, and stars and stripes taupe Chie Mihara heels. I went pretty low-key with the accessories--gold Anthro leaf belt and Christian Dior V necklace--because the rest of the outfit was so ALGO already. I've given up most of my high heels for now, but the two pairs of Chie Miharas are the most comfy high heels I own, so I made an exception (plus it went so well with the outfit!).
I am really happy that 1) I still fit into these non-maternity clothes and 2) I managed to pile on the prints and textures into one super-ALGO outfit that I think is still pretty polished and hopefully not too crazy and 3) I felt really "me" in this outfit...I think this is a very representative example of my current style!
Thanks for looking and commenting!
