The last time I tried Parisian chic was in July, Parisian moto chic style:
That was pretty early on in 1st trimester. Well I thought I'd see if I could try it again now with my bigger belly. Also, Janet inspired me to bring out the jacket with matching floral brooch from her post:
I love playing with different fashion personas. Yesterday it was preppy schoolgirl (http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....ol-brights), today it's casual Parisienne. Or at least, my version--I don't know if French women would ever actually wear bright orange maxi skirts, but if they did, maybe they would wear it like this! I called this look Orangina after my favorite soda (I actually have the poster in #9 hanging up in my laundry room!).
I also love that I'm sooo comfy in this...I'm just wearing a T shirt and stretch waist maxi skirt and ballet flats, but dressed up with a blazer and pearls, I'm ready for work!
White House Black Market ink blue jacket (it doesn't close anymore over my belly but it's one of my favorites so I'm still wearing it!) with matching floral pin
H&M navy and white striped T (non-maternity but it's long)
Nordstrom Max & Mia orange maxi skirt
Blue pearl necklace (OC swap via MaryK)
Jason Wu for Target navy trim straw purse
Born bronze ballet flats
Thanks for your comments and critiques!
ETA: Thanks so much for all your suggestions--more pics added with additional options! I really loved Una's suggestion of adding the orange slice bag for a more literal Orangina! Plus I think it ties together with the orange skirt so it's not so jarring. Also, three different pant options: orange skinnies (although they don't really zip up anymore so this would be more for post-partum), white jeans (these maternity ones don't fit well either so I'd probably wait and wear my white Paige HIdden Hills postpartum), or my burgundy maternity skinnies. Do any of these look any better? I also could do a black skirt, blue skirt, black skinnies, or blue jeans. Thanks for your help!
