WHAT I WORE | Maternity Style – 34 Weeks

It’s been interesting to see a shift in my personal style during this pregnancy. What I wear is less about how I want to craft my sartorial vision, and more about what fits, feels comfortable, and makes me feel pretty. Anything knit, stretchy, black, and simple seems to fit the bill. Flip flops? Yes, those too! At least I gained some satisfaction when my friends gasped in wonder when they first saw me wearing them. “You’re wearing flip flops! Please tell me your feet are swollen, because I just can’t….” Yeah, they know a day when I wear flip flops is a fashion emergency. I’m definitely looking forward to wearing pretty shoes again! Come on, baby!

O U T F I T   D E T A I L S :

slacks: thrifted | tank top(s): who knows- so old! | necklace: Hartville Flea Market | scarf: thrifted
cardigan: Old Gold Vintage | flip flops: pilfered from a forgetful bride on her wedding day

    Looking good, Mama! Love the hair scarf.

    PS, did you have an eyebrow piercing at some point? I noticed a scar above your eye which is just like mine from my old piercing. Haha.

      I have a scar next to my eye from where I had a tumor removed, and then if you’re noticing one above my eyebrow, that’s because I was a bad little girl and scratched my chicken pox spots. :)

    You look fantastic! I would love a tutorial on how to tie your head scarf. Mine never look so pretty. ;)

    • Mandi says:

      Good idea! I’ve found that my head scarves stay put better when I do my hair under them a certain way. I’ll share a tutorial soon!

      • Scout says:

        You look so lovely, and the scarf is just the icing on the cake. I can’t wait for the tutorial! I have tons of scarves but I can never get them to look quite so nice on me.

    Still a cute look though- even if its not based on editorial choice so much. Love the scarf!
