Workin' beige

Sweater: TJ Maxx
Pants/Legging: TJ Maxx
Shoes: Sperry's
Scarf: Target

In early spring, when I learned about my pregnancy and the November due date, I started stocking up on long sweaters that could be worn with leggings just like this! I love it when a plan comes together. Even a "boring" color like beige can become awesome with accessories. Thank you neon orange for making this beige sweater sing!

Workin' a tiny jacket

Tank: Target
Jacket: Express
Jeans: TJ Maxx
Boots: Charolette Russe
Scarf: gift

Sometimes I forget that I own this awesome jacket. Every since visiting Europe last May, I have been really excited about these leather (looking) jackets. I even bought one in Rome! I thought maybe the short-ness of this jacket would work well with the ever growing bump. I'm really quite pleased with this outfit. It is always fun to get back to wearing my boots again!

Workin' fall time

Dress: Target
Blazer: TJ Maxx
Shoes: DSW

For some reason, this outfit is screaming FALL to me. I don't know if it is the mix of stripes and leopard together or the red with the black and white. This dress is pretty fun to wear with the big ol' bump because of the way the stripes sometimes hide it and sometimes accentuate it.

Workin' 3.5 weeks

Sweater: TJ Maxx
Leggings: TJ Maxx
Boots: GUESS (via gift)
Necklace: Coldwater Creek

We have 3.5 weeks until baby's due date. This outfit makes me feel like even at 8 months pregnant, I can still be myself. I love that the sweater covers my bump, it is Colts blue AND it is chevron. All good things!

Workin' stretch skirt

Top: borrowed
Skirt: Forever21
Scarf: gift

Thank God I have so many of these stretchy skirts! This one also brings a little interest, with print, to what could otherwise be a pretty boring outfit. The scarf helps too. This top IS actually a maternity top that belongs to my sister. I haven't been wearing much actual maternity wear, but in this case, it worked quite well.

Workin' the darkness

Sweater: hand-me-down (from my sister)
Leggings/Pants: TJ Maxx
Boots: GUESS (via gift)

I normally would steer clear of these big bat sleeves, but the rest of the shape is to perfect for covering my big ol' bump. This outfit works surprisingly well. I don't normally wear so much black/grey, but I think I have enough other texture and interest that I don't NEED color too. I might be doing some more experimenting with black!

The jury is still out on whether one should wear leggings as pants in a professional setting, but I can get by with - so I do it.

Workin' classically me

Sweater: borrowed
Jeans: Seven
Boots: Carlos Santana (via gift)
Necklace: gift

This outfit is so classically me that it actually makes me feel a little bit comfortable in my 8 months pregnant skin. Maybe that should be my advise for other pregos - find a way to wear something that is your style and has always been your style. It gives you a small sense of normalcy during a wacky time.

Workin' matching green

Top: gift
Blazer: Forever21
Pants/Leggings: TJ Maxx
Shoes: DSW

It occurred to me when I put this outfit together that I rarely wear clothes that "match" like this anymore. I don't think that's a bad thing because I find putting together an outfit that "goes" instead of one that "matches" much more interesting.

Lucky for me this top perfectly snuggles the big big bump. Babe is growing at about 1/2 lb a week now! Hopefully the house is ready when he gets here!

Workin' satisfaction

Top: Banana Republic (via gift)
Skirt: gift
Blazer: H&M
Shoes: Chinese Laundry (via Nordstrom Rack)

I was actually surprisingly satisfied with this outfit. It fit well despite not being a "maternity" top. I feel like the color combination is new for me, but worked really well!

One more month until we meet Baby Nealis, so the nesting is getting serious and the bump is getting harder to dress!

Workin' summer dress

Dress: Kohl's
Cardi: TJ Maxx
Shoes: DSW

A summer dress can be accessorized and molded to do almost anything you want! This one is behaving today as a maternity dress because it has a nice high "waist". Also it is pretending to be a FALL dress because it is paired with this fabulous cardi. The print mix is fun and the color combo feels like fall. I'm calling this one a win.
