Week's Best Looks: November 11th 2012.

It's Sunday Ladies... so I will present you This Week's Lovely Looks. Once again I had a hard time choosing and narrowing down to these Beautiful 9 Ladies, but I finally did it!! In this week's colage you will see lots of Bright Colors - despite being Fall - especially Blue. You will also notice fun pants, classic black pumps and a few statement necklaces. To see the first week's installment click here. =)

This Week's Lovely Looks include
(from top to bottom, left to right):
 
Lorena pairs her Polka-Dot, Black+White Skinny Pants with a Gorgeous, Luscious Purple Top, a Classic Michael Kors Handbag and a Statement Necklace that matches those pants exactly.
Amy who is a Bride-To-Be wore a Stunningly Sexy, Nude Lace Dress with a Dainty Pearl Necklace and a Statement Bracelet for her Bridal Shower. Nude Pumps were perfect for this.
Lynne shows us how the simplest Khaki Dress can be transformed with a Colorful Button-Down, a Retro Brooch and Statement-Making, Cobalt Blue Lace Tights. Love her Soft Waves, too.
Sharon looks Chic and Casual in Must-Have Cognac Boots paired with a Bright Yellow Peplum Top (a Trendy item for Fall 2012) and the Most Gorgeous Signature Blogger Necklace.
Aulona wears a Sexy, Mini, Geometric-Print Dress with Royal Blue Tights, a Classic Black Blazer, Fun Booties and Red Lipstick. This Night-Out Look Earns her a spot for the 2nd Time in a Row.
Londyn made this an All-Red Week. But my most favorite outfit of all was these Crisp Red Trousers with the Embellished, Dressy Tank. Blue Earrings and an Ivory-Gold Cuff pop against all the red.
Annie wears Elegant, Cropped, Teal Pants with such a Dainty Gray Sweater with a Peter Pan Collar. Black Pumps and Leopard Accessories round up her look to a Sophisticate!
Alissa could pass for a Polished Young Teacher despite being a student, in this Black Ensemble that looks like a Suit yet it is made of separates. A Chambray Shirt, Red Clutch and Fun Necklace keep the Look Young and Fresh.
Heather wore this outfit "by accident" but that Gorgeous Skirt alone earns her a 2nd Week Best Look. Paired with Oxblood Tights (the IT Color of F/W 2012) and a Brown Cardigan, this is so Cozy and Colorful for Fall.
 
And My Own Favorite Look this week:
This look is similar to what I chose as My Own Best last week: Twirly, A-Line, Loose, Comfortable Dress with a Cardigan and even the same Leopard Flats. But I like it and if a silouhette suits me, why not "repeat" it in different ways.
 
 
P.S. Do not forget, tomorrow I start participating in the Fall Colors Fashion Challenge, kicking it off with Teal! =)
 
 


My Baby Story: 28 Weeks plus an Outfit.

Time sure flies when you are over your second trimester and into your third. A lot of people say that your third trimester, especially the last ninth month of your pregnancy seems the longest, but if November is any indication (1/3rd of it is gone, really?!) then I have a feeling that before I know it my baby girl will be in my arms, and I will be nursing and nesting her. And that is the moment I have looked forward to THE MOST not just these last 28 weeks I have been pregnant, but pretty much since the last 5 years of my life.
 
I hope my baby girl is healthy, strong, beautiful and kicking from the very moment she comes out, when they cut her umbilical cord and she cries out loud. When they will place her into my arms for the very first time and as we will smell each-other for the first time, I am sure happy tears will stroll down my eyes.
 
How Far Along: 28 weeks.
Total Weight Gain: 12 to 12.5  lbs. Good, because not gaining much weight during the 4th & 5th month worried me there, for a while.
Maternity Clothes? Yes. I can still wear a bunch of my clothes though, such as some leggings, sweater dresses, anything empire-waisted and certain tops/blouses/tees.
Best moment this week: Her kicks. I live for those kicks, from the softest ones to the hardest ones. She is more active during night time. =)
Miss Anything? Not having to wake up at night, to pee, once again (same as last week). I also miss sleeping regularly. It's so easy for me to stay awake (after peeing) and it's also easy to loose sleep over night. =(
Movement: Yes, DAILY. Or should I say NIGHTLY?! =D
Food Cravings: All foods sound good lately, but I have had a sweet tooth this last week and even consumed some desserts.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not really. I am getting more used to all kinds of smells.
Gender: A Beautiful Baby Girl!!
Labor Signs: No. Period.
Belly button in or out? In, but it is changing a little I must say.
Wedding rings on or off? On & loose. I keep my engagement ring on my middle finger most of the time and my wedding band on my engagement finger.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy about the baby, moody about work and also when I start worrying.
Looking forward to: The next ultra-sound which should be within the next 10 days. 
 
Now moving on to the outfit. I am wearing  a very simple outfit featuring gray leggings and a light cardigan and tee combo in baby pink/lavender. The cardigan is actually a Baby Pink though it looks more lilac-y here. And I love the little chiffon pleated detail on the tee. Sorry about being like I was under the weather but my hair was having a frizzy day and plus I am not wearing any makeup.
 
Baby Pink, Chiffon-Trimmed Cardigan w/ Pearls & a Floral Vine Off the Collar: Gruppo Fiori.
Short-Sleeve, Dusty Lavender Tee w/ Chiffon Pleating by the Neckline: The Limited.
Charcoal Gray, Elastic Synthetic Leggings w/ Zippers off the Side: Express.
Big, Circle, Orange Stud Earrings: Express.
Magenta & Black, Python-Print, Skinny Headband: Express.
Black, Suede Oxford Shoes: Forever 21.
