Here's a new teal houndstooth cardigan I bought from Nordstrom:
I thought, instead of pattern mixing, why not try pattern matching! Matchy matchy me loves pattern matching even more than pattern mixing! So I paired it with my burgundy houndstooth pencil skirt. And added a yellow skinny belt and bookended with a yellow bag, just because I thought the combination of teal+burgundy+mustard sounded interesting. DH did not like the belt though--he says it looks too tight esp. with my big belly. In general he doesn't like it when I belt things though, esp when I belt over sweaters or dresses. But another male coworker also commented on my belt today, saying "What IS that? Is that a belt? Is that supposed to be a fashion statement?" I tried it without the belt and with a black bag for a more subdued look but I don't think I like it as much--I feel like I look fatter without the waist definition of a belt (even if I don't really have a waist and the belt is under my bust). So, what do you think--belt or no belt? And yay or nay on the yellow?
This evening we were invited for a dinner party to another family's house so I changed into something more casual. This is another new sweater, from H&M. It's actually from the regular section but the tunic length is great for belly coverage. In burgundy of course! With Gap Maternity Always Skinny jeans and La Canadienne Galaxy boots and Fossil floral purse and WHBM burgundy cuff.
Thanks for looking and for your comments/suggestions!
