Maternity Style: Sweater & Jeans

How cute is this outfit? I love it so much! I said in my 20 Week Pregnancy Update the other day that it's getting more and more difficult to wear my non-maternity tops. I still have some in the rotation but I'm really beginning to rely on the dedicated maternity tops. It was bound to happen sometime!

The sweater is the Maternity Shine Pullover Sweater from the Liz Lange Maternity line for Target and it was actually the first official maternity clothing that I bought. I figured that it would work as a transition piece between the coldest days of winter and the warm/chilly back and forth thing that comes with Spring in New England. It doesn't really show in the pictures but it does have a very slight sparkle running through it so it picks up the light and looks really pretty. I love the long slouchy sleeves and the baseball jersey shoulder style.

In my epic quest to find some skinny jeans that actually fit my legs, I did find this pair of dark skinnies from Destination Maternity. The brand is Indigo Blue and they are the slimmest fit of all the jeans I found. It's so annoying how difficult it is to find maternity pants that work. There is no consistency in sizing or fit (shape), even within the same brand. You have to try them ALL on.

Since the day I wore this outfit was still a little chilly I wore socks under these booties from Call It Spring. They are the American Eagle brand, which I have always had great luck with, and I bought them a year ago. The strap on the side is my favorite part because you can keep it straight across or you can adjust the snaps to let it hang down, like I did here, for a more casual look.

The boots have dull gold accents so I kept my accessories gold but I kept them bright. I can't remember where I got my earrings but they are cube shaped studs. My necklace was a Valentine's present from Steve. It is the Taurus Zodiac Necklace from the Anna Saccone jewellery line. Mine is on the medium length chain in gold. I think a longer necklace looks really good with this long sweater.

There is a quick little OOTD video up on my main YouTube channel if you want to see this outfit in action...haha well, me wearing it and moving around anyway. It shows the detail on the sweater a little better than the still pictures do. :)


Thanks for watching!
