WIW 9/8--Dots dressed up and down

I wore these two outfits last Saturday. I wore the polka dot top, boyfriend jeans and red cardigan in the AM to take DD to ballet and then again in the evening to go to a friend's house for a playdate and BBQ dinner. (I know I already posted this BF jeans outfit in my other pants thread, but it was part of my "theme" for the day, so I'm reposting here). In between, I changed into another dotty outfit--this time the Kate Spade polka dot Jillian dress. I haven't worn this in a while (it feels a bit too dressy for MOTG and work), but I went to a bridal shower where the dress code was "black and white cocktail attire". Perfect! So glad I could pull this out again and that it still fit. It actually looks kind of cute with the bow over the big bump--kind of like a present! And of course, couldn't resist pairing these black and white dotty pieces with my white and black Dotty purse! I'm a total sucker for matchy matchy! Speaking of suckers, here's a bonus shot of DS asleep in the carseat after playing hard at the park that day. Love his sticky sandy hand clutching his half-eaten lollipop.

    Your DS picture is *priceless*. It actually brought tears to my eyes.

    And you look fab, you know I love you in bf jeans!! Dress is perfect for your occasion. It's like an LBD with a twist. Definitely worth a repeat because the bow is so sweet topping your bump. Can you tell I like bump flaunting outfits?

    Awwww... Can you please give your DS a kiss from me :)...
    And I love your dotty attire :)

    Beautiful outfits, Natalie. Do you know that I think pregnancy is (if possible) UPPING your style quotient!

    Your photo of your son is so poignant. Just beautiful.

    Such polka dot fabness! From ladylike polka dot dress to BF and polka dot top - these are both great looks for you.

    LOVE the pic of DS - so incredibly sweet.

    You always look so beautiful and out together. Love the dotty dress, and your casual outfit is extra fav. Love the red cardi and cons together ! And the sweet sticky hands, priceless.

    My two favorite "maternity" outfits! The gift-o-baby-bump bow is too precious!

  • Scarlet replied 7 years ago

    You look adorable, Natalie. I especially love the casual version. It's so fortunate that you can still enjoy a lot of your existing wardrobe.

    Both look really good.

    You look fabulous. Hey wait, where have I seen that expression before?

    Nonetheless, I can't imagine myself in polka dots. Ever. But it's fun how I can like them on you.

    Natalie, you look wonderful and chic and so upbeat in those colors and polka dots! The pic of your son's hand is too, too tender and sweet.

    Natalie, that polka dot dress is SO perfect! That's wonderful that it works so beautifully as a maternity dress too. Looks adorable with the dotty purse!
