Brown Silk Elegant Lady!

I swear since being pregnant, I am always hot. I want to know what feeling cold feels like again. I mean it. (And that is my current Facebook status, too). Seriously though, despite this rain business we have had these last 2-3 days, the only time I haven't felt so hot is late at night when I leave work and when the temperatures have dropped down significantly. But I feel like after the rain, the mugginess comes out. Also once I am inside I can't help but feel hot, too. Ehhh. And it's not like I have gained 20-30 lbs already. I mean at 6 months pregnant I measure pretty small. I am currently listening to "Dessert Rose" (on repeat) - I hadn't listened to that song in years and I love it - and I can't help but compare the title to the song to the current state of my body. Thankfully I will get to go home soon so between the walking and the waiting at the bus station real late in the evening, (which is cooler than the day) I might cool off for a bit.

Today's outfit features one of my most favorite dresses in my wardrobe and it is from Banana Republic. I have also worn it (differently) another time this summer, for a TV Interview, but I had such a busy and tiring day that day that I didn't have time to photograph the outfit. I love the subtle brown-on-brown Polka Print that this beautiful silk dress has. It is a classic and womanly style with a little bit of an empire waist which in my current situation, helped. And since my bust is currently quite more ample than usual, a camisole underneath it is a must so I paired it with a bright, contrasting color. The shoes (who also have polka dots) match the two colors in my outfit. I added another print to the mix: a little bit of Leopard (my bracelet).

Hope your weekend was fun, bright and enjoyable!! =)
