Hey guys! This winter has been the craziest New York winter in awhile– below zero temps and a blizzard one weekend, and the next one warm enough to go tights-less with just a light jacket. This past weekend was def the latter– it was a balmy 55 degrees for a birthday brunch in Brooklyn to celebrate my friend’s baby boy’s 1st birthday (lol how funny is it to be ONE!!!)
I picked up a few new stretchy body con dresses from Topshop recently, this olive green one included. These have been my saving grace this pregnancy– its been tough to find actual “maternity” clothes that still hold true to my personal style (edgy, boyish, not too girly), so fitted dresses with some give to them have really been my go-to. Forever21, Topshop, H&M and Zara all make really affordable ones that I’ve worn throughout my pregnancy, and I know that I will be able to style and wear post baby as well!
The Varsity/Bomber jacket was EVERYWHERE this past fashion week– its been around for a few seasons now, but oversized ones are really going strong currently. They make a great alternative to a denim or leather moto jacket, and are perfect for layering and adding an “athleisure” or tomboyish touch to your looks. This is probably my fave outfit that I’ve worn recently, and you guys can copy it pretty easily: Basically, start with a body con dress, (short like this one, or a midi would be great too!), add fresh white sneaks and a jacket like this one, and you’re done! Sporty, kinda schoolgirl-tomboyish, but very current and chic. The ponytail seemed like a must with this vibe also– As much as I love my hair, sometimes there’s nothing better than pulling it off your face, right? Accessories-wise, the 90’s styling called for a black cord choker (remember the good old days when we rocked these with like, peace signs and yellow smileys hanging off em?! They are TOTALLY BACK!) and simple aviators. This look works for brunch, shopping, errands, or even work , if you work in a casual or creative environment like mine.
Shop these exact pieces (plus some similar options!) above now– I bet this outfit solves at least ONE of your events this weekend!
