It feels good to be wearing, like, real clothes, because before I put on this outfit, I was wearing pajamas…and running down the street, barefoot, chasing a DHL delivery truck and yelling “STOP!” at the top of my lungs.
I was also waving a very strange six-foot long tube-like package in the air while I was doing this. At almost six months pregnant. Of course.
Basically, DHL mistakenly delivered it this morning, and by the time I realized that it wasn’t for me (I signed for it and everything), the DHL van was almost a block away!
I freaked out! I ran out the door barefoot in my PJs and chased them down…as awkwardly as a rather pregnant barefoot woman could run. Luckily, they must have either seen my awkward hobbling or heard my shouts, because they stopped, and yes, they were laughing.
I took the incident as a sign to change my clothes when I got home…
(Oh, and I have no idea what the long tube-like package was.)
And here’s my outfit! Nothing is designated maternity. It’s all just normal clothes.
That’s the Cozystitch Sweater Dress by Loft in Teal Night Melange, which I grabbed on sale for 40% off a few weeks ago, so I suggest waiting until the next sale instead of buying it full price (I am sooo my mother’s daughter). I like it because it’s soft, cozy and has some stretch, so there’s lots of room to rock a tum.
It also comes in two more shades — Toasty Camel and Dark Ruby. I saw both of them in the store, too, and they’re also very cute.
I paired the dress with these suede over-the-knee boots from Sam Edelman that I got last season (for 50% off!) because I like how the shorter hem of the dress looks with the high boots. But if you don’t like over-the-knee boots, I bet black tights and black booties would work great, too.
To complete the outfit, I added a chambray top (also from LOFT last spring), a leopard-print J. Crew belt (which, once upon a time, fit around my hips), a J. Crew Excursion Quilted Vest and a plaid infinity scarf.
I wanted to get a little dressed up today because I met a couple of girlfriends for high tea in San Francisco this afternoon. We went to the Neiman Marcus Rotunda in Union Square (AMAZING views, fun high-tea service with savory sandwiches and those tiny cakes). It was just me, Marisol and Arianne from Glitter Geek, and I got to meet Arianne’s new baby, Sarah Rose, who’s three months old (and VERY cute).
I had a great time, and I didn’t have to do any more barefoot running, yay! 🙂
In other news, are you as ready for Friday as I am?? This week flew by, but it still felt long (yes, I know that sounds weird). I’m plum tuckered out.
