WIW 5/22-23: FFBO Magic dress+statement necklace+flats

I like doing variations on a theme, so here are two versions of another FFBO formula: Magic dress + statement necklace + flats. Very comfy yet dressy at the same time. I wore these both to work, and the first one to a Mom's Night Out as well. The first dress is a Nine West "magic dress" that I bought on eBay, and the second one is from Bluefly. Who knew these would be the perfect postpartum dresses? Both of them are forgiving of my postpartum apple tummy. Both have a colorful busy print, which is great for hiding pumping leaks and baby spit-up. ;) And my nursing bra doubled as a cami (although I seem to have developed some new cleavage, LOL!). Both of these necklaces are new from White House Black Market. I've been getting a little bolder and more statement-y with my necklaces lately. What do you think, do the bigger necklaces work or are they too overwhelming?

    Personally I love those big necklaces on you. I particularly like the first one with the crystal type beads dropping down. Both dresses are lovely natalie. The draping does indeed look so flattering and you have a great shape. Both looks are finished off in fab fashion with all your great accessories. Love!

    I so love these two frocks on you Natalie, and I've thought so often in the past that you have an amazing jewellery collection! LOVE the bigger necklaces (and bracelets) for your style, I think the proportion here are just right.
    (also loving your "new" fringe!)

    Your FFBO are anybody else's best efforts! You look fab. I especially love the colour of dress #2 with the new specs.

    Both dresses are very figure flattering, and I think the statement necklaces look great the way you've styled them. I've been getting a little bolder with my necklaces, and I also wonder if they're too overpowering.

    The dresses look great on you -- I love your big necklaces and wowee cleavage (the only time I had any was when I was Bf too!)

  • Adelfa replied 7 years ago

    Wow, you have never looked better! Both dresses are wonderful and I especially love the colors of #2 on you. That first necklace looks like it practically grew on you, the style and colors fit you so well. Looking great!

    Great outfits on you. So nice to see a "postpartum" mom rocking her style as well as her baby. The specs are awesome with the dress. Have fun.

    Both dresses look great on you.  I especially like the pointy toed flats in #2 and the necklace fills up the neckline nicely.

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    Such "Natalie" looks! Gorgeous, comfy, happy and ready for fun :)

    Love both these dresses on you Natalie and you have the most incredible jewelry collection - I love how you put an outfit together. And you are rocking flats lately.

    And congrats on the new cleavage - lol!
