I am always so inspired by Charmed Valerie‘s posts showing various ensembles that she has put together. If you have not visited her blog, I would encourage you to do so. She puts together great fashions at affordable prices, and she’s a local DFW area blogger too!
I thought I would do my own version of a style post, although my photography is pretty terrible (sorry).
Saturday night was the Holiday Party for Christian’s workplace. He has only worked there 6 months, but he really likes all the people he works with. It was at an Italian club near their office, where they had a wonderful 5 course meal that was delicious.
I wanted to be dressed-up, but not too much, because I wasn’t sure how dressed up everyone else would be. Also, I am now 6 months pregnant. This baby is not lookin’ small.
A while back, I had picked up this maternity top on clearance at Target. It’s made of cotton but it has the look and feel of a silk.
To go with it, I ordered some velvet leggings from Macys.com during their Black Monday sales:
I got non-maternity leggings because leggings are pretty easy to wear underneath a long top, below the belly.
I wore my own shoes from Nine West and clutch.
My hair is still really short but I tried to dress it up with a flower hair accessory. It was made of velvet which hopefully tied in with the leggings.
Here is a kind of murky shot of the final ensemble.
It was comfortable as well as a good fit for the party.
