A-line Maternity Skirt

It was my dad's birthday this weekend and I felt like getting a little dressed up for the celebration.  One of the perks of having lots of sisters is sharing clothes!  This cute lace maternity top and medallion a-line skirt were passed to me from my older sisters.  I liked how the texture in the lace top paired with the pattern in the skirt.  Then I went with a gold chain link necklace and neutral bag and boots to complete the outfit.

Bucket Bag

My in-laws gave me this gorgeous MK bucket bag for Christmas.  The leather is nice and buttery and the gold details are really pretty.  I also love its thicker strap, which makes it easy to carry, and the medium size, which keeps me from loading it up too much.  For this outfit I stuck with dark neutrals plus my tweed puffer vest.  I added a pop of color with the blue fringed scarf and the coral earrings.  Easy casual outfits like this one are pretty much what I have been living in lately!

Sister Post: MB's Snow Leopard Skirt

I loved this chic outfit Mary Beth wore during the holiday season!  The skirt is such a statement piece in the fun snow leopard print.  The green draped blouse and long gold and black tassel necklace paired perfectly with the skirt.  The details and proportions really work well in this look!  It was an especially exciting holiday season this year because Mary Beth and her beau Jürgen got engaged!  I am so excited for my little sister and so happy that she met such a great guy, her perfect match.  I am really looking forward to helping her plan her amazing wedding!!

Navy and Gray

BRRR - it has been so cold lately!  It makes me very thankful to have a warm home and also thankful that some of my winter coats are still working with my baby bump!  I just passed the six month mark, so less than three months now until we meet our baby boy!  He has been super active lately, which is a lot of fun.  Jon got me the Sound Beginnings Pregnancy Music Belly Band for Christmas and our little man seemed to love it!  He was kicking around a lot to some classical music.  We need to pick up a microphone soon, so we can talk to him.  :-)  Oh and some other exciting news: we picked out bedding for the nursery - the Pottery Barn Kids Brooks set!  I love the colors and the cute baby animals on the quilt.  Looking forward to seeing the nursery all put together in a few months!

Striped Blanket Scarf

My sister Jenn (who was just featured in Friday's post) had me for our Christmas pollyanna this year.  She gave me a few awesome presents - including blue tooth head phones, which I LOVE, and this cute striped scarf!  I threw it over top my maroon cardigan, black shirt and jeans.  This wool baseball cap kept the sun out of my eyes on this warm winter day.  I love the big block stripes on this scarf and how cozy it is.  It also hides the baby bump a little, which is nice when I feel like blending in a little more and not having all eyes on my belly.

Sister Post: Red Dress Style

Jenn wore this cute red dress with black lace and zipper accents for Christmas Eve this year.  I think it also would have been a perfect look for New Year's Eve or any holiday party!  The subtle fit and flare style is universally flattering and the length is perfect. I love it with the touches of sparkle Jenn added with the cute heart pendant necklace and her silver hair clip.  The black tights and flats keep it casual for the family get together. It's a great dress that doesn't need much else to complete it!
