With a little help from my friends ...

Thursdays are marathons for me and yesterday was no different. I have standing a doctor's appointment early in the morning and birthing classes in the evening with DH. Our usual routine is I pick him up from work and we'll squeeze in a light dinner before class. Mid-days are used to run errands since I'm already dressed. To top off all that activity I also try to squeeze in a nap during the afternoon so that I'm alert for the evening's class. Whew!

So this outfit was inspired when I scrolled though my favorites from the forum (thank you ladies!). I settled on Adelfa's business casual look from last week and decided to keep the yellow bag in play based on Rae's outfit from several months ago. I thought Adelfa's outfit was so polished and classic in addition to being easy for me to copy since cropped BF jeans are one of my 2 maternity bottoms. The inspiration to continue carrying my yellow bag was deliberate. It was from an outfit Rae wore earlier this year also from my favorites. Rae sported a similar color palette then added a bright yellow bag. So essentially yesterday's outfit was cobbled together with the "help of my friends" on the forum. I'm wearing:

  • Old Navy Bateau tee in cream and black 
  • Apt 9 cropped peplum black jacket 
  • Old Navy Maternity BF cropped jeans 
  • Puma ballet flats in gray and teal
  • LC yellow tote
Happy Friday!

    Rute is right--it does look very european. And very chic! I love this combination. Makes me want to go out and buy a yellow bag. :)

    Nice combination and those jeans are amazing on you. Like the streamlined look, with the pop of yellow. Hope your busy day went smoothly.

  • Aubergine replied 9 years ago

    Definitely looks very Euro-chic! The bag is a great touch.

    Your fab-ness knows no bounds! Love this on you. Simple, chic, and so pulled together. Nobody would guess you had a hectic day. 

  • jackiec replied 9 years ago

    Oui oui, tres chic as well!

    Love the pop of yellow with the bag :)

  • Sara L. replied 9 years ago

    You look great!  The yellow bag is a fun addition to the stripes.

    So perfect DV - comfortable and completely put together.

    Merci beaucoup mes amis! (my French is quite rusty!)
    I am flattered by all of the euro-chic comments. Even DH said I looked very French when I pulled these pieces together early yesterday morning. I'm convinced it's the top. It has that effect on outfits. It truly is the most versatile t-shirt I have ;-) I was afraid the sneakers would bring down the look but the mere fact that no one has mentioned it means my fears were unfounded.
    I was really just searching for a black and white top that fit. This is one of 2 striped tops I have access to right now.
