Black, White, and Pumpkin Spice...

Happy Wednesday Snow Day my loves. 

I hope you all are enjoying some much needed time off to relax and take in the beautiful scenery outside.  My area rarely ever gets snow-especially not in January- so this is somewhat of a big deal for us.  I believe the last time we had weather like this it was in the middle of March. Crazy, right!?

Today I want to share with you one of my maternity outfits that I intended to post before the baby got here. Time obviously got the best of me as I was busy nesting and doing baby related chores.

Since I didn't really get a noticeable baby bump until late (about 7 months)in my pregnancy this outfit will look great on a non expectant woman as well.

My Mother gave me this wonderful striped blouse as a birthday gift and I knew immediately that I wanted to pair it with a bold color.

If you're a new visitor, each Tuesday I highlight one trend and come up with an inspiration board containing 3 different styling ideas in my Trendy Tuesday posts. My outfit post for the week usually pertains to the highlighted trend-giving you a chance to see a real life budget friendly version of that trend. View this week's post to see the styling ideas I came up with for the black and white trend.

These bold leggings worked perfectly to bring out the classic black and white pallette. They were found on the red line clearance rack at NY&Co, one of my favorite retailers. I can't wait to style them this Spring.

The elastic waistband made for a comfy belly too!

I'm all about some layers so I figured I would top this fit off with my thrifted Zara corduroy blazer.  The elbow patches had me at hello. This piece is such a staple in my closet.

All in all this may have been one of my favorite maternity outfits-it was super comfy and stylish, and best of all it cost me less than $25.

What are some of your favorite budget pieces from your closet?

I can't wait to hear from you. 

Thanks for reading.

    1. Thank You so much. You're too kind. I wear flats all the time as seen in some of my older posts.
