HOW TO STYLE THE BUMP IN STRIPES

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES

JuJu's Boutique_ Stripe dress_ Maternity style_ Style the Bump_ Fall Fashion_ Je Ne Sais Quoi

When October began, I posted this dress decked out with Orange & Brown Accessories.  See outfit

here

. To switch things up and give this dress an entirely new look I simply changed the accessories. The bump accessory stays :)  On a warm day like we had in New York yesterday (hello 72 degrees!) this outfit would have been trés appropriate. For later this week, a cardigan, denim or leather jacket would provide the warmth needed on this sleeveless dress. 

What's most fun about this outfit is the mix of materials & colors: Black & white Stripes with Blue tights and Diamond graphic print.

This infinity scarf lends itself to multiple shapes: Doubled, Long and as a Head scarf.  There are even more possibilities but I ran out of steam.

HOW TO STYLE THE BUMP ALA KIMONO

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES

Finding outfits for formal or dressy occasions are challenging for most. Now throw a bump into the mix, and we have a real challenge.

Yet, at

JuJu's

I found the most elegant combination

with Jordan's help, of course. It starts with this

Ivory Shift

dress with gold embroidery detail at the neck line. We all know the shift is not only a groovy shape from the 60's but also a good silhouette for hiding some extra pounds (accommodating a protruding baby bump!).  

Alone this dress is simple and elegant. Now, throw on this shear, printed,

Kimono style open coat

and the elegance factor has increased significantly. 

This would be really hot for date night with your

Baby Daddy...

 a wedding... or any semi-formal occasion you have on your calendar.

FUR GET ABOUT IT

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES

JuJu Boutique_Style the Bump_Maternity Fashion_ Floral Palazzo Pants_ Fur Vest_ Fall Fashion_Blonde chic

Have you noticed yet how much I love furry things?!

When I found this

faux fur

vest at

JuJu's

 Boutique I had to build an outfit around it. As Jordan (the manager/ stylist) and I were looking for bump friendly pieces she found these wide elastic waist band

floral pillazzo pants

.

Elastic, Lycra, Spandex - all your friend, bump or no bump

. A solid top would have been the standard choice with such a busy floral print.

But having je ne sais quoi is not about being standard

. So, we searched the boutique for a striped top. With the fur vest, the outfit was complete. 

Fur Vests: these have been in vogue for about a decade now. Rachel Zoe really elevated the trend in 2008 with her long shaggy ones. At this point it's safe to say: a fur vest is now a wardrobe staple. It works with separates and dresses. It's a great transition piece for fall or spring (or all winter in Louisiana ;)

HOW TO SWING WITH A BUMP

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES
This "Swing Dress" by Nadia Tarr is one of the most comfortable yet lavish dresses I have put on during this pregnancy.  Thanks to Sopo Boutique in New Orleans I had the chance to experience it. (go online, in person or call Sopo to order any of these items!!!) 

This dress is a substantial weight in that luxurious sense. The queen would approve - there is no way a gust of wind is blowing this one up! The material is so soft you could sleep in it. The swing of the skirt makes it a perfect dress for dancing. Can you imagine a twirl in this skirt?! (too bad I forgot to take a video in this)  If twirling is not your thing, just sashaying down the street is beautiful with its graceful swish. In other regards, it's forgiving full skirt is great for a bloated day or a 3rd trimester with a big bump.  It's a dress to live in. 

The accessories are natural in a fun Louisiana centric way: Grand Crawfish Claw Necklace and Stalactite Necklace

For this dress - only heels will do.

HELLO OCTOBER

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES
stripe dress_ orange jewelry_ le village B&B_ JuJu's Boutique_ fashion blogger_ fall fashion






Orange is October. I love this month. I love little miniature pumpkins and everything pumpkin flavor. I love that this outfit is almost a Halloween costume yet totally hip for any day. This black & white jersey dress is loose and comfortable rather your have a bump or not. The built in cape like feature adds a touch of sophistication to an otherwise simple dress. 

While in Louisiana last week, I worked with manager/ stylist Jordan at JuJu's Boutique to come up with some new fall outfits (bump friendly ones of course) 

In Louisiana and even in New York where Indian Summer is in effect, October can still bring warmish days. Arms can still be bare, but  brown leggings were added to make it more seasonal. Booties are still hot this year especially with short dresses. Then we threw on all this orange jewelry to make it official - HELLO OCTOBER.

WHAT TO WEAR AT YOUR BABY SHOWER

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES

baby bump_ maternity fashion_lace dress_ hemline new orleans_ baby shower_ethnic jewelry

Like your wedding day, this is an occasion where all eyes are on you (and your bump), so it’s worth the effort to find just the right outfit.  As apropos as it will sound, something endearing and maternal is not a bad idea. Consider the fact that your mother, grandmothers (hopefully) and their friends will be there, so it’s not the time to exploit the inner sexy you might be feeling with your new embracement of womanhood. But trust me, there is a time and place for it!!!!
It’s also not the occasion for your maternity jeans unless it’s a cowgirl themed baby shower in a saloon.

So keep it wholesome, appropriate for the setting, and something in which you feel comfortable.

For baby shower #1 in Cajun Country, something with a feminine and vintage appearance works perfectly in this setting. As it is still quite warm even in late September no sleeves or tights are required. I borrowed from my sister this long, easy, lacy dress. The ivory lace has a sweetness appropriate for the celebration of a new sweet life and the easy silhouette was comfortable enough to move around greeting friends. Instead of accessorizing with the typical pearls or delicate jewelry one might feel inclined to don, I choose an array of ethnic jewelry I’ve collected from around the world to add some spice.

It was a happy accident that the theme of the baby shower was TRAVEL! This baby will be born in the year of the Horse, which loves to roam.  More pics from the most beautiful baby shower I’ve ever been to (thanks mom & hostesses) coming this week!

HOW TO DO BLACK TIE (WITH A BUMP)

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES
the metropolitan club_ black tie attire_black dress_ blond pony tail


One of the bigger challenges of dressing the bump is dressing it for a Black Tie event. Up until now I have been able to convert most of my bump friendly current wardrobe into maternity wear or buy pieces that will work post bump too. For a Black Tie occasion, there is less wiggle room. 

In the spirit of moms uniting, my friend, O, lent me an Alice & Olivia dress she used for a formal event during her pregnancy. It was perfect. 

It's incredibly chic and sexy, yet modest for a mom-to-be. With so many billowy fabric details going on, this called for an up-do so that the hair did not distract from the dress.

Strappy Pewter Sandals with just enough heel allowed me to dance all night avec bump (thanks Yoko D!) and this Sheared faux mink kept me cozy on this chilly September evening.


Ari showed off what his outfit could do too, but my favorite part of his ensemble was his take on black patent leather shoes - he opted for Patent Converse! I mean, we do live in Brooklyn. So what.

HOW TO TRANSITION TO FALL (WITH A BUMP)

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES
Style the bump_ Maternity Fashoin_ Fashion Blogger_ James Perse_ Scoop_Sid&Pia
The time of year between seasons can be a tricky one for the fashionable. The calendar says one thing but the weather says another. For instance, September marks the beginning of fall season yet the temperature can still say summer. How to deal - 

This Ribbon Crochet top from Scoop was a great end of the season find. Because of it's loose crochet weave, it grows with my new expanding shape. The texture and Grey-Green color are perfect for this transition time period feeling fall like. Yet the tank cut and airy nature of the crochet keep me cool when its still 85 degrees outside!

As you know by now, I love a little peak of bright color somewhere and these florescent bandeaus have served me well.  

and that's how you ease into fall, with a bump.

These are the best black tights - and have made it through 6 months of pregnancy: James Perse leggings

PICK CHERRIES IN STYLE

FAIR MAIDEN, COUNTRY CHIC, & SUBTLE GRACE
OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES

Earlier this summer we were in Colorado at peak time to pick cherries in Ari's mom's yard. It was perfect. We ate more cherries in those few days than I typically eat all summer. If only I had more time, I could planned a recipe post for you!!  Perhaps next year I will be better prepared.

Taking advantage of the backdrop I pretended to be a sweet, graceful, French, country girl picking cherries in Provence.

The Yellow Ochre skirt and Ivory Battenburg blouse are accessorized with Bright Red Bing Cherries and a Resin Wood block necklace.This outfit idea also conceals a 16 week bump ;)







UNTIL NEXT SUMMER...


KEEP THE BUMP SLEEK & SIMPLE

FASHION | OUTFIT IDEAS
When one starts to expand into a new pregnant shape, which sometimes feels like in all directions and angles, comfort starts to become key.  I find that even thought I can still "fit" in some of my old clothes, I don't LIKE the way I "fit" in them.  I've never felt so frumpy as when I try to get dressed with these new masses of body parts.

Finding this dress at J.Crew (not part of their maternity line) was a key find. It's simple and sleek so it doesn't add any unnecessary bulk to my current cargo.

It's thin which keeps me cool in the summer and easy to move around in. Some days dressing up the bump is tons of fun. Other days simplicity is key. 

The accessories is where things can stay complex, or shall I say articulate. 


ALL BETS ON FLAMBOYANT

FASHION | OUTFIT IDEAS

For most of summer we head East to Montauk, East Hampton and other Long Island beaches. Sometimes we go North for a more granola vibe in the Catskills. Yet last weekend we tried something completely new - THE JERSEY SHORE - more specifically: ATLANTIC CITY !!!

It's a place I've been curious about for a while now. I mean, how could I not be curious about a place with the persona of flashy lights, flashy casinos and flashy women. While packing I went with my gut (or bump) instinct and packed for the Glam Beach look mixed with a little Brooklyn.

My bump did not lead me wrong. My sequins, animal print, flourescent bikini and gold heat transfer designs were a perfect fit.

WHAT TO PACK FOR ATLANTIC CITY:

For the Casino - 
Sequins & accessorize with a poker visor
My Brooklyn touch is the full denim skirt. Could be worn with heels but I kept my MK sandal wedges on from the day.

For the Beach - 
Animal print is alive and well in AC. Thank god I had this zebra print coverup which I pretty much just keep around these days in my costume drawer. I felt perfectly in place with it here. It even had the prerequisite AC glitz with a gold braided belt! In the case of flip flops, plain old Havaianas will not do. Studded sandals are way more appropriate. 

Underneath, I had a multi color flourescent bikini. Those pictures I'll leave out. I feel like I'll be exposing the baby all nakies !!!

For Saturday Night - 
I found, in the back of my closet (near the zebra cover-up), a dress that I usually find too flamboyant for even me. Its gold heat transfer flamingos don't typically fit the venues I visit these days. But Saturday night in AC, it had the chance for a revival. It's just revealing enough, but no to much for a mom-to-be ;)  On the feet and shoulders, I went Brooklyn with Rachel Comey shoeties and a Gap Chambray shirt. Every other girl had on glittery platform stilettos!! Not afraid of the boardwalk at all - Very Impressive. But I had to stick to my style, somewhat.

The only thing missing to make all of these the absolute perfect AC ensembles is..... Can you guess ???

... Nail Art !  I didn't have the time and that is a bad excuse for a fashion blogger (but I do things other than blog). So just note: to complete your Atlantic City look - get yourself some NAIL ART.  

Luck be a lady tonight.

STRETCHY FABRICS, NOT STRETCH MARKS

FASHION | OUTFIT IDEAS
When I found out I was pregnant I vowed to not loose my unique style, not spend a fortune on maternity clothes I could never wear again or blog about babies. So far i'm sticking to it (but who knows what will happen when it comes to blogging about babies once this adorable thing arrives!)

By July 4th I could not button my pants anymore and things were starting to look frumpy in my new softer body. It was time to re-evaluate my closet and go shopping for a few new things.

While I have yet to find a maternity line I really like, I knew my old favorite, AllSaints, would do the trick. They are known for their de-structured cuts and flowy shapes.

In July you can always score with end of summer sales even tho summer is hardly over.

This dress was perfect. The print is really cool. It looks like a mélange of a flower and an xray. The back panel is a stretchy knit so it makes the dress roomy for protruding parts. I also think it's really cool to wear a short dress when your preggers (tho mind your manners as it's harder to cross your legs when you sit as you get bigger)

STRIPES & ANCHORS

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES


After last French Friday, Mademoiselle Love and I did out usual outfit switch to show you how to re-style these Katybelle pieces. 
Ready for more summer Outfit Ideas???

Mlle Love has a black bandeau under the sheer Anchors Away Blouse for a more conservative approach than my hot pink one last week.  Worn with vintage Levi jeans, it's a laid back yet sophisticated look. 

I took the Dotted Silky Skirt and funked it up with a sheer stripe button shirt. To make it a little sexy, a 50s style knot at the bottom closes it and bares a bit of skin. 

More below to get inspired and get dressed up.




Accessorized with Mignon Faget Hive Collection



I love this necklace. It was a gift from my mom by one of her favorite jewelry designers, Kenneth Jay Lane. It's completely ridiculous and ostentatious - these are the reasons I love it. Sometimes jewelry should compliment your outfit and sometimes your jewelry needs to scream: I'M HERE!  Really it just depends on your mood that day (or if you need to scream at someone).


In this case, shoes finish the outfit. Incredibly steep (but comfortable) Lucky brand lace up wedges (left) seamlessly fit in with my funky style going on on top.

On Mlle Love,  I put her in my embroidered slip-ons from Thailand. While I would not necessarily categorize these as sophisticated as the rest of the outfit - they are a perfect choice because they add a touch of well travelled persona to the outfit which is indeed sophisticated.

THE PERSONALITIES OF PINK

OUTFIT IDEAS | FASHION CLIFF NOTES

After our tête-à-tête last weekend, we switched up our outfits to show the versatility of our pieces from KatyBelle Boutique. 
J'adore top $35 (L) and Bold Color Block Sheath $55 (R)

J'adore top  (L) and Bold Color Block Sheath (R)

The J'adore top goes from office sophisticated last week to hot night out in leather pants this week.
 The Bold Color Block Sheath, which I like to call the Napolean dress because it reminds me of my favorite childhood ice cream, gets a sweater accompaniment making it less sweet and more cool.

Both outfits are accessorized with Pearls. Long pearl earrings are dramatic even next to leather pants.  The 5-strand pink pearl necklace with the Napolean dress and sweater combo add class but not stuffiness.
