Maternity Style: Chambray & Stripes

 
 
 
 


 chambray: gap maternity (similar non-maternity) //  skirt: f21 // 
shoes: ann taylor (similar) // watch: fossil // bracelet: gift (similar)

*bump status: 28 weeks

This might be one of my favorite maternity "outfits" so far. I think it's mostly because this skirt is not-maternity and it just feels so good to be able to get away with it. Thank goodness for elastic waistbands that you can roll down. If you are looking for a striped pencil skirt, I have to say, this one is awesome. It's thick (so no colored underwear shows through), it's soft and oh, it's $10.80. I'm pretty sure I hit the jackpot on this one. 

In non-clothing related topics, fall is already crazy-busy. Okay, it's not really fall here (97 degrees hardly screams pumpkins) but I work at a university and we are in our third week of classes. Our office already has multiple programs going on, I've had to work late a couple of days and our weekends are filling up. And I'm having a baby in less than three months! I mean, there is a lot going on. I'm already missing the slow pace of summer. Come back, summer. 

P.S. I'm a featured Home & DIY Superstar this week on Cut Out & Keep! Follow along for a new post each day.

  1. $10.80 clothing jackpot for the win! This outfit is very similar to one I repeatedly put on. Chambray and stripes are so natural together!

  3. I wish summer would come back too! My life was a lot more manageable when I didn't have to worry about working everyday haha. I really like this outfit. I'm pretty sure I have something just like it pinned, and now you are giving me a little boost of motivation to go ahead and wear it!

  4. I agree - this outfit is awesome! I love pairing chambray with my striped skirt exactly like this! I am tempted to pop in to F21 and see if the navy version is available. I wear my black/white one all the time, so I think navy would be a nice addition!

  5. What a deal for the skirt! Love items that you can wear that are non-maternity! You're doing great stretching your wardrobe!

  7. Stripes and chambray are very cute together. And you can't beat that price for a skirt!

  8. Um, yes, you have a TON going on! I'm sure it's not too easy to concentrate when it's 97 outside, especially while pregnant. This combo is so cute together though!

  11. This outfit looks great on you!! You have definitely been able to pull off more non-maternity items than I have lately..haha! Hoping you're able to still relax a little bit this fall before the baby comes - I work at a university too, but we're non-residential and a lot of our students take classes year round so we're settling into the short amount of time that things tend to calm down for us. :)

  12. Wow, great find with that skirt!!

    Ah - I wouldn't want to work in a school right now. The lack of routine and just general craziness of the start to the year is enough to make me run for the hill!

  13. I really love this too - stripes and chambray are a great mix, and not only is the skirt not maternity, but F21. If there was ever a rebellious skirt to be wearing, that would be it.

  15. I have a similar skirt from Old Navy that I actually do have to roll down-- I could have sized down to fit the waist, but then it would have been too tight on the thighs. Probably shouldn't have bought it, but it was $7 and I get so much use from it! I will definitely be wearing my chambray shirt with my striped skirt once the weather cools down!

  16. I have been searching for a maternity chambray shirt, and this one is cute! I am going to order it for sure! So glad you are around to model these things in real life!

  17. Such a cute outfit...and that skirt, what a deal!

  18. I love that chambray shirt, it looks so cute with the striped skirt! I totally understand about being busy. I joke that I timed my baby perfectly because I had her in May during the university's slow season. On the downside, it was too hot to take the baby anywhere unless is was early in the morning or late at night. At least the weather will be nice and cool when you have baby!

  19. I LOVE THIS! There's something so comfortable and classic about this chambray + stripes combination :) And how wonderful that you're able to wear some non-maternity items as well :)

  20. Ok, I have worn a version of this outfit you have on a couple of times before. Love it. Both pieces are awesome. Every woman should own a fitted striped b+w skirt and a lighter-medium wash chambray shirt.

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
