WIW 12/13 & 15: Orange B44, Gap ivory sweater and Secret Santa gift

1-2. Pretty sure I've worn this combo before, but the growing belly always makes it new again! This stretchy dress is going to be one of my workhorses for 3rd trimester. I feel like it looks better on pregnant me than non-pregnant me, because I don't have to be self-conscious about wearing it! When I'm not pregnant there's always this bit of worry that someone will mistake the apple pudge for a baby bump!
Here's the non-pregnant version...see what I mean in the side view #8:

Lafayette 148 caramel leather jacket
Alexis Bittar orange leopard pendant
F21 bronze and orange bracelet
Mia Nanette brown ankle boots
Fossil floral satchel

3-7. My lovely secret santa gift! Could not wait to wear it! Paired it with my new ivory Gap sweater and my burgundy skinnies.

I received an exquisite handmade necklace, with a set of hand-crocheted rings in my favorite burgundy color! It is an unusual statement piece and I had to wear it right away! My patients and nurses loved it...lots of compliments today! Thank you sweet Secret Santa!

If I had to guess who would be so crafty and talented and thoughtful, I would say Diana, as she makes the most amazing hand-knitted items for her wardrobe! My secret Santa tried to throw me off by using a California return address (that didn't match any of the Elfster participant's mailing addresses), but I have my suspicions anyways (and I found a sneaky way to confirm them)! Thank you so much Secret Santa for a unique and gorgeous gift that took a lot of effort to make! I feel so special!

    Wow, that is SO sweet!! You look smashing in your new necklace. I can't believe this place sometimes.

    That dress is amazing! You'd think it was *made* for an expecting mom! And can you remember how worried you were that your fab wardrobe was going to go to waste soon?

    Also, that is a very talented and very thoughtful Secret Santa you have, whoever it is!

    I love that dress on you Natalie and it has worked so well for pregnancy. That is a stunning gift, so unique and thoughtful.

    Oh the dress is working so well for your belly and the necklace is so cute. Love it with your ivory sweater and burgundy jeans.

    Amazing! I can't believe how well the B44 works for maternity; Mani is right that it seems made for your growing belly.

    I've been planning to style my Gap sweater just like that (minus your beautiful necklace, of course.). Fun!

    The dress and jeans both look fab on you - glad you can wear one of your non-preggo outfits still. The necklace is divine!

  • Diana replied 4 years ago

    Haha, yes it was from me. Guess I am not very sneaky. ;). I love that you've styled it with the YLF sweater! Somehow that just seems perfect on so many levels. And of course I knew you'd have the perfect burgundy items to pair with it. Glad you like it!

    Perfect! How fun to see you wear this necklace from Diana :)

    And #2 is KILLER.

    What a beautiful necklace! It's so perfect for your style Natalie!

    And of course you look beautiful in your B44 dress.
