A casual outfit that I feel great in is worth way more in my books than a pretty dress. I love a good twirl just as much as the next girl, but there's something about a baseball tee and relaxed jeans that makes me feel perfectly comfortable in my own skin. To girly it up a little, I'll toss on a sparkly headband, some wedges and great bag, and you might just see me in this all week.
Wanna know a little cheat of mine? I love the look of boyfriend jeans on most people, and I usually try out trends when they come around. So, I ordered a pair of boyfriend jeans from American Eagle a few months ago. They looked like a case of mom jeans gone completely wrong on me. Oh man, they were not flattering, my friends. So, I traded them in for this pair of straight leg faded wash jeans, and I cheat the boyfriend jean look. Similar relaxed look, less frump.
Speaking of cheating-- none of these pieces are maternity. Maybe it's just my stubborn streak, or maybe it's that I just can't stand the ruching on some of those maternity tees, but I'll probably go most of my pregnancy in non-maternity duds. Thankfully, it seems that many retailers are carrying tops in longer lengths that work pretty well for covering a bump. Some of my recent faves are Target's Mossimo Layering Tanks, Old Navy's Perfect Tee, and JCrew Factory's knit tees.
