Last Friday, I showed you two outfits only one of which I actually ended up wearing for the day. As I got ready for my day again, I ran into the same issue. And again, I fell back on something purple to “save my outfit.” Being pregnant, many shirts that used to fit no longer provide adequate coverage. And despite being a maternity shirt, this blue shirt sneaks a bit too low as I move throughout my day. So, wanting to avoid pulling my shirt up all day and wondering how much cleavage poped up, I changed my shirt as I ran out the door (almost literally, I was late for a doctor’s appointment before work). I wore this purple shirt with the black tank underneath all day sans cleavage concerns.
Admittedly, the skirt is a bit short and the shirt might seem somewhat casual. I wore the cordouroy blazer all day in the office, and we all know adding a blazer steps up the sophistication of any look. I had no meetings with clients or bosses today, so I considered that the opaque tights bought me an inch or two on the skirt and made it acceptable for sitting in my cubicle all day. I certainly wouldn’t wear this skirt without thick, opqaue tights (at least during pregnancy). You can see below that this self-made skirt has sufficiently more length, as I wore it last summer, when it’s not competing with my growing baby bump.
