Cargo Jacket Maternity

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.

Because This Is Spring

These are two outfits this week that I felt epitomized Spring in one way or another.  I was trying to find the common thread between them, but I was unable to find anything concrete enough to give the topic any air.  So after a short deliberation over the subject matter, I realized that the similarity between the two of them is simply their seasonal appropriateness.  It is finally Spring, and as long awaited as it was, it was well worth it.  And there are outfits to prove it.

The first ensemble is semi-reminiscent of the D&G Spring 2010 RTW collection, which featured humongous tiered skirts, denim shirts, and eyelet everywhere.  The second features a current wardrobe favorite of mine: the sleeveless trench.  It is incredibly versatile, and I plan on wearing it as long as the weather remains tepid enough for me to withstand the layering.
