We’re at that funny time of the Fall down South where one day is chilly and crisp and the next it feels like we’re back in Summer! Dressing has been quite the challenge, since I fully want to embrace the Fall, but the weather has different plans. Well I recently saw some of Ulla Johnson’s latest pieces, and felt like they were perfect for this transitional period. In particular, I fell in love with this leopard midi dress with fluttery sleeves and A-line cut that would be bump-friendly for me during pregnancy. First of all, I loved the leopard print in unexpected army green and Autumnal shades! For a a quick trip down to Florida, I accessorized my look with sandals and a straw hat. However, as the weather cools down, I can’t wait to throw it on with ankle boots and a leather jacket over my shoulders. I felt like this look truly had the flexibility to straddle both seasons! In the meantime, I’ll be rolling with the punches until Fall decides to truly stick around!
This Summer, comfort has been key. Between COVID and my pregnancy, I’ve had little motivation to get very dressed up or put on a fussy outfit. Enter the most amazing dress from H&M. I’ve absolutely LIVED in it this Summer, and gotten the most compliments. With a wide shape and black hue, I throw it on (admittedly braless) to comfortably beat the heat. Would you believe I bought this dress before I even knew I was pregnant? So it’s bump-friendly, or just easy and breezy no matter your shape. The best part – it’s currently on sale! While it might be sold out online, I’m told you can still find it in-stores. Believe me…this one is worth it!
H&M has been serving up the fire looks lately. I love that they offer such stylish pieces at affordable prices. Many times, the items look far more expensive than you would expect. Case in point this recent jacket that I found at my local store. I loved the faux tweed texture, the oversized gold buttons, and the longer length. It’s so easy to throw on with a short dress or even jeans and a t-shirt. In my case, I threw on the extra layer over wide-leg Zara trousers and a black bodysuit. It was an easy and comfortable option for a breezy day where I didn’t want bare shoulders. I tend to gravitate towards cream jackets (my cream blazer collection is overwhelming), but I also love the black. I think it will be a great transitioning piece to Fall! I completed my look with some high-end accessories including new Tom Ford sunglasses (found in the men’s section at Saks) and my trusty Goyard bag. Shop the look below!
