Wheat, Fuchsia and Cognac.

It is Saturday and as of yesterday I am officially on Maternity Leave. My plan for the next 3-4 weeks or so is to relax, get as much sleep as I can, pack for the hospital, wash all the baby's clothes, at least the Newborn ones and the ones 0-3 months, put together her bed (my husband will, I will just dress it) and pretty much get ready for her arrival, as much as I possibly can. I also plan to see a couple of friends while I can. Ohh and I still have a bunch of outfits to show you since I am behind, some photos taken in the office. Today's included.

This is a simple outfit where I threw together two sweaters. The loose (well it is not loose now with my belly) magenta sweater underneath is quite thin, but paired with the thicker cotton cardigan, I was warm. This sweater definitely got too small for the belly, I am putting it away till after the baby now. It isn't Maternity after all. I call the color of this cardigan: Wheat. I love how you can really see the belly here.  And I am convinced that Cognac Boots are staples and go with everything. Don't you think so? Now that I am looking through these photos, this outfit could have used some accessorizing with a long necklace perhaps. Oh well, next time, As you see through my outfits this week, I have done lost of color this week: Orange, Burgundy, Maroon, Red, Wheat, Cobalt, Magenta, Sky Blue, Fuchsia, etc.

P.S. It is amazing that at over 8 months pregnant (when this outfit was worn) none of the pieces are Maternity. I have gotten lucky as far as not gaining a ton of weight.

Happy Saturday Ladies!! It is THE WEEKEND - the last weekend of 2012, nevertheless.

Fuchsia, Boat-Neck, Light Sweater: Ann Taylor LOFT.
Camel, Linen/Cotton Blend, Belted, Open Cardigan: Victoria's Secret.
Black, Stretchy, Skinny Corduroy Pants: White House Black Market. 
Cognac Brown, Leather, Riding Boots: Payless.

    1. Thanks Heather. Pink makes me smile too as does its pairing with beige. Both colors are pretty & they offset each other.

      Hoping your weekend is going great. =)

  4. This is such a pretty mom outfit :)
    The colors go perfectly together and give you a modern look. I think you look fab in this and that you have done a great job in maintaining a reasonable weight through your pregnancy.
