So my maternity inspiration on the forum Golden Pig/Natalie is a master at finding and pairing matching patterns and wearing them together. I thought of her when I paired my zebra printed jacket with my zebra printed kitten heels.
I was lamenting to Beth Ann on my post yesterday that some maternity tops are ridiculously DRAB. This one would be a prime example. In my defense, I bought this top online and had no clue that the blue had more gray undertones so it was not going to be the sharp vivid cobalt I wanted. I mentioned to Adelfa in her post earlier this week that "fake cobalt" looks great with black and white patterns. There's something about the high contrast of black and white that sharpens this shade of blue and makes it pop in the way you intended.
Also this top is made to grow with you but the sizing is HUGE. So even at 35 weeks this top has way too much room around the belly area for me. I thought the jacket and the white belt would give some structure and shape to this top. I think I succeeded.
I'm wearing mostly maternity today, but I would definitely remix this outfit and wear it again as a non-pregnant lady. How did I do?
- Old Navy maternity top in "fake cobalt"
- white belt
- Zebra print jacket
- Loft maternity boot cut jeans
- Ellen Tracey zebra print kitten heels
- Coach white patent handbag
