Week's Best Looks: November 18th 2012.

Once again it is Sunday, and for the third Sunday in a row, I am doing "Week's Best Looks". =) This week it is a little bit different since both myself and a bunch of other fashionable ladies I follow, took a Clothing Challenge that pertained to 5 Beautiful Fall Colors: Teal, Wine, Pumpkin, Mustard & Gray. In this week's best, I chose 11 looks altogether. First I have 5 Best Looks of ladies who chose to do this challenge. I choose a favorite look for each color/each day. And my second list offers 6 other looks which I adored, this week. To see the first week's installment click here. =), for the second installment right here.

This Week's Lovely Looks from the Fall Fashion Challenge, include
(from left to right):

Monica wears a Beautiful, A-line, 50s-Inspired Gray Dress featuring a Lime Floral Print, topped off with a Teal Cardigan. Her legs look extra-long in Charcoal Gray Tights with Sexy Black Booties.
Megan wears an Orange-Red Dress topped off with a Stunning Knee-Length Sweater Coat in Wine, featuring a Cute Ruffle Detail off one side. She makes the look 100% hers with Funky Tie-Dye Orange Tights and Sassy Mary Janes.
Callie's version of Pumpkin is a Bright Orange Cozy Cardigan, simply worn with a Stripped Black & White Skirt, Classic Black, Opaque Tights and Cognac Boots.
Lynne is making me envy about her Gorgeous Skinny Mustard Pants so perfectly made Work-Ready with a Classic Navy Blazer and Feminine Ruffly Button-Down. The Pewter Ballet Flats are too cute.
Frannie is wearing a Very Chic Gray Sheath with a Simple Black Patent Leather Belt and Gorgeous Dark Red, Patent Leather Peep-Toe Pumps.

This Week's Other Lovely Looks include
(from top to bottom, left to right):

Jessica is wearing a Stunning Emerald Green Blouse with Cut-Out Detail on the Neckline, paired with a Hot Trendy Item for this season: a Fur Vest. I love her Bejeweled, Colorful Earrings.
Kate Dresses Up her Baby Bump in Jewel Tones. I love how her Skirt and Top look like a Dress. The Magenta Patterned Tights are too cute and of course Cognac Boots go with everything.
Alissa is also wearing Green this week. Her A-line Skirt with a tucked-in Chambray Shirt are so Effortlessly Chic together, while those Leopard Ballet Flats are Stunning.
Juneli has the Cutest Bird Sweater on, paired with a Bright Magenta Button-Down, Red Crops and Navy Trench. Her Nude Peep-Toes and Matching Bag are Gorgeous, as is that Statement Necklace.
Molly has made many trends work here: Cobalt, Leather and a Jean Jacket. Her Cute Braid and Ever-Adorable Sparkly Black and Blue Ballet Flats, make her look like a College Freshman.
Sharon is also sporting Green this week through her Skinny Pants tucked into Simple Black Boots. It is that Sequined-Collared, Polka-Dot Sweater that really steals the show, though.

And My Own Favorite Look this week:
I am not sure whether the scarf makes this outfit or it is the dress that does, but either way I love it. This new Pashmina is a Great item in my closet and I loved wearing it over this Olive-Gray (yes it is between an Olive Green & Gray) Sweater Dress.

My Baby Story: 29 Weeks plus an Outfit.

This has been a quiet week in Baby Land, meaning my girl has been quieter than usually. And I haven't weighed myself, until this morning and I am still pretty much the same as I was the last time I weighed myself.

As far as baby happenings this week, yesterday I went and did some toy shopping for her and got her 3 super-soft plush toys: a red heart with a pink bear inside, a pink dog and a duckie that makes the typical duck noise LOL. Also, my Mother in Law was in Brussels this week for work and she did some shopping for her first grand-daughter. She also got her some gorgeous plush animals, a beautiful pink coat & scarf, a jumper and a hat. I could really go to baby stores and spend hours whether browsing or shopping, but I usually don't take a lot of money with me. My girl has a big enough wardrobe as it is. I really shouldn't be spending a lot of money and plus I am still waiting on more stuff to be shipped from my mom and aunts and from a couple of friends. =)

How Far Along: 29 weeks... and growing.
Total Weight Gain: 12.5 to 13 lbs.
Baby Measurements & Weight: About 15 inches long and weighing in at about 2.5 lbs. I cannot believe she is already that long/tall.
Maternity Clothes? Yes. But I can still wear a lot of my own previous clothes, including some pants and leggings.
Best moment this week: Her kicks, as usual. And hearing her heartbeats.
Miss Anything? Not having to wake up at night, to pee, though I try only once at night, twice is not necessary. Also I miss not moving 100 times while sleeping.
Movement: Yes, DAILY. But lighter movements though I feel like sometimes I have felt her heartbeats.
Food Cravings: This week I have been craving more fruits than usual and definitely desserts. It has been a sweet-tooth week for me. ;-)
Anything making you queasy or sick? Yes, actually yesterday morning, my Prenatal Vitamin made me nauseous and I had to throw it up. But it was on an empty stomach and I took it with water so I am guessing that had to do something with it.
Gender: It is PINK!!
Belly button in or out? In, but trying to get out.
Wedding rings on or off? On & loose. It looks like my fingers have gotten smaller throughout this pregnancy.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy about the baby, moody about work (at times) and I get crabby when I am really hungry. 
Looking forward to:  Week 30 ultra-sound. I want to see how much she has changed and grown since the last time we had an ultra-sound.

And now on to today's outfit. I wanted to make this week all about Fall, the lush colors of this season (my favorite season of them all) and such. And Burnt Orange is a great color that comes to my mind about this season. My mom gifted me this top, among other Pregnancy tops. I love the little ruffle detail and buttons by the neckline. And I love that it is cotton and it has 3/4 sleeves. These things make it very comfortable & versatile. I added pops of blue here through my necklace & bracelet. Last time I wore this statement necklace I also wore orange. Also all 3: the necklace, the earrings & the headband are floral. This look was cozy for a more casual work-day.

Burnt Orange, 3/4-Sleeve, Cozy Cotton, Maternity Tee w/ Ruffles on the Neckline: Oh Baby by Motherhood.
Black, Stretchy, Skinny Corduroy Pants: White House Black Market.
Flower, Baby Blue, Statement Necklace: Aldo's Accessories.
Mint-Green & Gold-Edged, Flower-Shaped, Stud Earrings: Parfois.
Blue & Silver, Stretchy, Rhinestone Bracelet: Gifted from a Girlfriend.
Silver Headband w/ Cute Rose & Leaf Detail Off the Side: Kohl's.
Brown, Soft Leather, Slouchy Boots: Diba.



P.S. This Burnt Orange is definitely a Visible Color so I am linking up with Patti.
