The Modest and Modified Bodysuit

I started my outfit with a salmon bodysuit from Reformation, and built up from there. The jacket lent a beautiful contrast of a  cool dusty blue alongside the warmer tones of the skirt and top.  The comfort of a bodysuit is that you never have to adjust it and retuck; it stays in place all day.  It’s a brilliant foundation piece for your wardrobe but might be skintight, so topping it off with a jacket is a great way to keep it modest.

Rag and Bone and Belly

I love this sweater not pregnant, and I continue to express those sentiments well into my third trimester.  The loose fit allows it to work for both states, pregnant and not, and this skirt I have been able to wear under my belly throughout my maternity days, thankfully.  It really is about just sifting through your wardrobe until you find the pieces that can accommodate the need for more room, so to speak.

Let it Rain

At the beginning of the year I waxed philosophical and posted a rainy day inspiration mélange in the hopes of lifting the gray spirit of the wet meteorological marathon we were experiencing. We are having a similar week now, and this post is not entirely on the same romantic note as the aforementioned, but simply a grateful ode to my raincoat, with whom I have grown considerably close to this week. It doesn’t seem to look like it will let up until the weekend, so to post pictures of sunshine and fluffy green grass seems futile and irksome; thus I am just going to go with it. Three consecutive days of rain is tiresome but to wear a beautiful weather-appropriate topper is the best medicine.

Modest Musings: The Fashion We Love…And Men Hate

It is not a new concept by far (Leandra Medine’s Man Repeller has created an entire empire from this one abstraction alone), yet it’s staying power is an enigmatic anomaly for sure.  You would assume that, scientifically, Women should be dressing for Men; yet Fashion dictates a separate set of rules that we can’t help but follow.  We dress for ourselves, even when the men in our lives don’t really…get it.  From anything oversized, the sweatshirt and button-down pairings, to full midi skirts, oxford flats and socks, and the occasional furry oddity, the fashion we so desperately love is not necessarily what screams femininity and grace.  It is on a much more powerful level that calls to us straight from the runway and pours out onto the streets.  We abandon all sense and science for these things, and it is a fabulous liberation for our closets and ourselves.  It transgresses the typical rules of proper proportions, color, pattern and beauty, and we embrace it regardless.

Suffice to say, this is a fashion revolution of the best kinds (especially for the modest fashion clad as the most recent bout of trends cater to the tznius fashionista).  Just ask the likes of Phoebe Philo of Céline, and Stella McCartney, whose Fall 2013 collections turned the world of street style on its head; what with their truckloads of plaids, pinstripes, tremendously cocooned menswear coats, and midis, midis everywhere, it’s hard not to notice, and covet, the styles that have taken over and left most men pondering…What on Earth is she wearing?  However, if it sets your heart into a fit of palpitations, and you Need. It. Now. – then wear it, and remember that translating the high fashion and seemingly preposterous onto a women who is happy and confident in her clothes is all that really matters.  And that is a beautiful thing.
