Yesterday was spent shopping and more shopping. Preparing for the impending little one is getting me exasperated. We have tried our best not to over-do any of it, but given just how lazy I can be at times, we had left a lot for the sales hitting the markets this weekend. I feel more relaxed and confident today that we have most of what we would/could potentially need the early days and then figure it out from there on. After a busy morning, we hit the SummerFest currently happening in the city for the evening. Nevertheless, the 5+ hours of walking, music and lakefront chill completely wore me out.

To beat the morning heat, I wore this flowy maxi skirt with the billowing bell sleeves top that is not only airy but very roomy as well. Given the beautiful sunshine, I could not resist wearing a bright and cheery outfit for the day. I have worn this maxi skirt many times during summer, last seen here on the blog.  Do not forget to enter the amazing giveaway going on in the last post! Up your chances by following all the sponsors!!

Have a fantastic 4th of July weekend! Stay well and cheers!

As I have mentioned a few times before camouflage has been a color tone I have avoided for long, partially because I was always scared of the color. Not sure why though. But with this drapey pants trend, I have gained the courage to wear it more often. These are regular/normal pants with elastic waist that I have worn once before as well here and talked about here. I am also experimenting with multiple color combination like this House of Harlow necklace from Rocksbox. Just adding one contrasting element plays off well with the other color tones. I try to keep it simple and not overdo it if I am not sure of a combination or pattern mix.

Lately – Part 2

After a crazy busy week and an eventful weekend, I am in so many ways ready for the long weekend. This is the second part of the lately series as I wrap up my past week’s outfit. For the duration of the training, I chose to pack light. Easy to wear dresses and tops to go with my maternity pants. I have finally consolidated my packing to bare minimal necessary items and make the most of it while out and about. The fact that I chose to pack only two shoes says a lot about my packing habits, because if this was in the past, I would have packed more shoes than tops/pants. Funny how life changes.

Lately – Part 1

Work takes me places occasionally, literally. So today is a small recap of my daily outfits rather than a full blown outfit post since I don’t have my trusted photographer with me and have no time to actually take photos for the blog. This post will have to do with iPhone and instagram photos alone. The below outfit is what I wore on Monday. The photos are not the greatest quality, but you get the gist of the outfit, I paired a striped grey and mauve maternity dress with purple jacket and grey pumps. Since these days I am all about comfort, this outfit worked out perfectly for me as the day got hotter and more humid by the hour, the stretch jersey dress gave me respite from the heat and the jacket provided comfort while in meetings where the AC was cranked up to cold. Notice how I paired two solid colors that are already part of the outfit color to complement each other. You can do that with just about any color combination, as long as you have a binding agent, in the form of the outfit itself ( like a dress) or a dominant color for the outfit.

A quick weekend in New York city and we are back to the grind again! A week long work training followed by an incredibly busy weekend will be what follows next. The weather in the city was muggy with rain showers here and there and I was glad I wore clothing that held up to the humidity. We stayed at the Empire Hotel right by Central Park and I cannot stop raving about how beautiful the park is, even though it is old news. My bump is now so overwhelming that I think that is all I can look at when I see myself in the mirror. Got to sit tight for just a tad bit longer, so I am doing everything I can to stay busy and prepare for what is to come, even though I can never really be fully prepare for it.

I decided to wear this super comfortable, elastic waist palazzo pants for something fun and on trend while strolling through the Central park. The denim jacket came handy during the cooler night time when the wind shifted. The necklace is a very interesting piece I found from a vintage store a long time ago. In this outfit, I tried to pair something flowy with something fitted. I always balance out my outfits that way so as to not look like a giant rectangle.

How do you balance out flowy, over-the-top billowing outfits? Share a thought and stay well.
