Style Content – Monday Fun Day OOTD

Spring is here today! I don’t know for how long but it’s here today! And although it’s still a bit cool out I just had to embrace the season with my outfit today. I opted for absolutely no maternity items today – this is proving more and more difficult as time goes on, so this is me squeezing my belly into these Zara jeans one more (last?) time (seriously it’s starting to get uncomfortable).

Yes I keep wearing the same clothes over and over, that’s what you do when you are 7 months pregnant! It’s too expensive to keep buying new items. I did buy this new t-shirt from Jcrew and am loving it. I went for a size large, even though i can still fit into a size Medium, thinking that it would easier accommodate the bump in these last 10 (or so) weeks.

Leather Jacket – Zara, hoodie – Wings & Horns (husbands), V-neck tee – J Crew, jeans – Zara (same washed out stretchy jeans I bought months ago).  I paired this with my good ‘ol black Toms. I was going to go with my Tory Burch flats but had too much running around to do and thought the slipper like shoe was probably my best bet.

Layers Layer Layers and Comfort. That’s my advice (and motto) for today.

Style Content – OOTD Shades of Grey

OOTD shades of grey

 

New grey washed out jeans (maternity) from H&M ($40!), oversized black blouse  by hanni y that is a staple in my closet (I’ve had it for over a year). Oversized fuzzy grey w/ skulls scarf and of course my trusty black leather jacket both from Zara. Boots from  Fiorentini & Baker.

All that happened here was a new pair of inexpensive maternity jeans from H&M giving new life to some staples in my wardrobe. FYI I’m at 27 weeks here. We didn’t take a side profile pic but trust me there’s a large bump there. That’s why i had the big fuzzy scarf and gloves on, because there’s no way my jacket zips up.

I had so much fun today shooting with Jonathan from lululemon. He is the proud owner of Guest Etc and asked to feature me this week. Having worked for lululemon for 6+ years, I’m still a big fan of their clothing – which is no secret if you’ve been following my OOTD posts.

Here are some of the ‘runners up’ photos from today’s shoot;

Style Content – Leather Jacket Shopping

I ordered a leather jacket from Zara but it came in so slim in the shoulders I didn’t think that would be conducive to life as a new mom. So I headed to Zara to try on other sizes and also found an alternative style that I think I’m going to exchange for.

Here’s what I ordered (in a better fitting size) – and yes I plan to wear this open over the belly this Spring, possibly layering a lightweight hooded sweatshirt underneath. And also in the fall again – with a baby carrier underneath 🙂

Today I’m wearing one of those extra long cool racerbacks underneath, with my favourite wunder unders – they are made of a textured looser knit fabric that is more comfortable around my belly than the regular luon. Both from lululemon. And also a lightweight wool cardigan from J Crew.

Here is the style that I think I prefer more. I love the covered studs.Image

I have to say I was a bit dissappointed that I couldn’t just exchange in the store – apparently if it’s the same style i could have but for a different style I can’t. So now i have to send the return back, wait for the refund, and then re-order. Much too complicated and time consuming Zara Canada!
