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.
A combination of factors have been impeding on my immediate ability to do new outfit posts, but I hope to remedy that posthaste. Moving to a new location with unfamiliar territory, I find it difficult to carve out the perfect photo-op spot. That being said, I schlepped to the far reaches of Long Island and took the opportunity to document my #OOTD.
I have never been one to buy maternity clothing. I do not love the selection or designs (with a few exceptions to be discussed in a future post), and I find I can make do with a non-maternity wardrobe in almost the same capacity as a maternity specific one. Jackets are a great way to create a simple outfit from bare basics and take it up a notch. Assembling a collection of jackets, blazers, and any number of toppers is a great investment in the chicness of your future. I have worn this particular cargo version many times, and it serves me equally well, both pregnant and not.
From all the spring sartorial essentials, the jacket is probably the most versatile and practical piece in your closet. With the power to complete and sharpen any outfit, whilst providing an obvious meteorological vantage point, it is a building block within the foundations of your wardrobe that should not be overlooked. As of late, I have been repeatedly reaching for a particular version of jacket in the utilitarian family: The cargo jacket. Maybe it is influenced by the fact that I still reminisce about the times when I used to wear my father’s old IDF uniform shirt in high school. Or it could just be that it is so manifestly cool, it willingly transforms any outfit into a street style star.
