WIW 12/8-12 Week 28: Dots, spots, hearts, flowers, and bubbles

A random assortment of outfits from this week. A lot of black and white/grey and plenty of burgundy. I think these burgundy maternity skinnies are turning out to be the workhorse of this season! I wore them three times in 5 days! So glad I bought them.

1-3. What I wore to take DD to ballet class, then to see Santa, then to see the Nutcracker, then to one of DS' classmate's birthday party. (Pic 2 taken by DD). It was a long day but the Kate Spade dress held up nicely. Funny story...while we were waiting in line to get into the Nutcracker, a woman came up to me (looked like she was in her 60's) and said, "I have those same exact shoes! I've never seen anyone else wearing them so I had to come talk to you!" She said she had bought hers in a little boutique in Maine. So funny! Once I also had someone accost me in the ladies' room and say the same thing about my purple tweed coat from Anthro that I was wearing--she said she also had the same coat! I suppose if I saw someone wearing one of my more unique pieces, I'd probably approach them too!

4. Just hanging out at home with my sister and brother in law and their two girls, doing an early Christmas celebration. DD and her cousins were decorating a gingerbread house. I purged a bunch of stuff from my closet and offered it to my sister...she took most of it, so I was happy both that she could use it and that I had cleaned up my closet.

Pea in the Pod maternity burgundy skinny jeans

5. Wore this to work--hearts and flowers. I loved having the matching flowers on the shirt and the ballet flats. Here is my new quilted hearts burgundy bag. I love having the extra room compared to my burgundy clutch.

6. Exact repeat of my Anna Karenina outfit from last month (http://goldenpig.lookfab.com/p.....ucle-skirt). Though I am starting to get too big to wear belts and pencil skirts now...it's not quite as comfortable anymore. So I may have to put them away...wah!!!

Fossil floral satchel
F21 bronze stretch bracelet
Nordstrom tweed bloucle skirt
Clarks brown pumps

7-9. Bringing out the bubble necklace again. I always seem to want to wear this with patterns rather than solids, so it will blend in more. I thought the colors of the leopard flats would bookend the black and gold necklace. And burgundy bag to match the burgundy pants. The top is getting to short to cover the elastic panel on my maternity jeans, so I may have to start wearing maternity tanks underneath these normal shirts.

    You look fantastic Natalie! I especially love #6, and I think your Betsey Johnson maternity bag might go with that outfit too. Nice to see you with lip color, so pretty!

  • Karie replied 7 years ago

    All your outfits look fantastic - I especially love the polka dot dress! Your family pic with Santa is so cute :)

  • Glory replied 7 years ago

    My fave is number one!! Thanks for sharing your family pic with us. Beautiful children!

  • Janet replied 7 years ago

    I swear you just might be the cutest pregnant lady I've ever seen! You look adorable in all of these, and your family is beautiful.

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    Your burgundy skinnies are the greatest maternity jeans ever. And your family is just too cute. Fantastic gingerbread house also.

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    Adore #6 and 7, but all our fab. I'm glad your having fun with the family, too!

    BTW -- Did I miss something? What is a "maternity" bag?

  • Sara L. replied 7 years ago

    You look good in all these outfits although I'm especially partial to the ones with the burgundy skinnies. I like the bubble necklace with this particular print. When I was pregnant and my tops got too short, I also layered tanks underneath.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Your family Christmas picture is just so beautiful Natalie!

    And I can't get over how perfectly the fish bow shoes go with the polka dot dress - love it! Of course, I love the Anna Karenina outfit - such beautiful rich colour palette and fabulous textures.

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    I can't get past pic #1. MY WORD, you have an adorable family, Natalie. Good grief, your kids are so cute!!! I can't stand it. That is a truly magical photo.

    OMG Natalie! You have the most adorable photogenic family. You have some amazing clothes for your amazing life. I hope you're enjoying your pregnancy because you look so stylish!

  • Sona replied 7 years ago

    particularly loving the dots!!!!!

  • Tina.b replied 7 years ago

    They are all great outfits, but the polka dots are just so beyond fantastic. You need to put together a maternity lookbook. Your style is just impeccable!

  • goldenpig replied 7 years ago

    Thanks everyone! You are all so sweet!

    Denise and Beth Ann, the burgundy hearts satchel is from DSW. It's not a "maternity bag", its just a regular purse. Though I know there are lots of stylish diaper bags out there!

    TinaB, thanks! Actually, I did do a maternity lookbook--here's the first trimester:
    I'm working on the second trimester one but will get to it soon!

  • Carole replied 7 years ago

    Ok, that is the cutest picture of your family with Santa! You are the most stylish expecting mother, ever! All fabulous looks!

  • catgirl replied 7 years ago

    Wow, these are a really cohesive and gorgeous set of outfits. You and dots are a match made in heaven. Somehow you pull off these sweet looks without looking precious, maybe because you just OWN them.

    Totally jealous of your gingerbread house - ours always ends up looking like something condemned and ready for demolition.
