for Maternity Style

During winter, we typically gravitate to wearing a lot of black and brown but every now and then, we need to add a pop of color to our wardrobe. This super soft (machine washable) v-neck dress is perfect for doing just that. The soft blue hue is flattering for both brunettes and blondes and helps to highlight the glow you've got going on right now. The empire-waist of the dress along with the sparkly necklace is flattering for any body type as it draws attention up to your face. The necklace is a steal because Lane Bryant is running a special whereby you get a second necklace free. The suede boots are both classic and comfortable with a sensible heel while the blue leopard clutch shows you still enjoy having fun with your fashion.


Blue Jersey Knit Top, Old Navy, $9.99;  Black Rolled Waist Skirt, Old Navy, $16.50; Jeweled Necklace, Lane Bryant, $39.50; Black Bow-Tie Pumps, Forever 21, $15.04; Leopard Clutch Wallet, Forever 21, $9.80

Total Cost of this outfit:  $99.28

nice, safe choices, in general. a little matchy-matchy and slightly matronly? felt like each look could have been made slightly more youthful, but still accessible to a wide range of ages. for example, the second look could have used a pop of color -- possibly a teal blue scarf or necklace. the first look is a little too red-and-black. and the cardigan has a tie under the bust that i think would compete with the empire-waist on the dress. i think a simple heather grey cardigan (shrunken for something a little fun) would have been pretty. can't beat the prices, though!! www.dcstylefactory.wordpress
