How I wore it: catching up

As little as I like to repeat shoes twice in a row, yesterday's rainy weather made me pull out my clunky rain boots again. But I paired them with a pretty dress and pearl jewelry. I'm ... not sure if the final result was a stunning victory:

I loved the look of this empire-waisted jersey dress on my pregnant body, but I wasn't sure if it went well with my tougher rubber rain boats. I also felt quite uncomfortable with my bare legs - could it be that my last job sold me on the stockings?!

[Usually I would've worn more matching boots, but I slipped and fell on the slippery cafeteria floor the first day of rain of the school year, so I promised myself that I'd only wear rubber soles on wet days.]

Today I decided to step up the casual and wear an outfit that made me just feel like a cool pregnant lady, although I don't know if its result was as neat-o as it was in my head:

What up, cowlick?!

These jeans didn't really go well with the hoof-like proportions of the grey booties, but until I found that out by photographing myself, I felt pretty sassy. Next time I might just tuck the booties beneath the jeans, which are straight-legged and not skinny. Curses!

I've been incredibly tired these last few days and I don't know if my body's just starting to slow down a little more or if I just need more sleep... Intriguing... But on that note, it's time for sleep again.

  1. I think you achieved "cool pregnant lady" with the second ensemble. I love a belly-highlighting ensemble!
