Pregnancy Style: Living in Jumpsuits



These shots were taken months before, well before you could really tell I was pregnant. I probably wore this jumpsuit at least once a week due to its ease of wear, how chic it still made me feel even though none of my other clothes fit, and it's easy to style monochrome hue. As you can tell you can really have fun with it (ie. loading up on the accessories, like I did) or keep it super simple and it would still be a minimalist dreamy piece. 

As I mentioned on IG last week I've really been into jumpsuits lately (the bump is no longer hideable) and have been sizing up and stocking up on them. Do you have any favorite brands for jumpsuits, boilersuits or coveralls?

Layering is an art form here in Northern California, it's something that you learn over time as an expat or are born with as a local. That notorious chill affectionately known as "Karl the Fog", will get you if you don't layer properly. I know when stepping out in San Francisco, that I need at least two or three layers, or else I run the risk of "freezing", as I say.

Tall boots, knee-length dress, roomy turtleneck, and a blazer are my perfect San Francisco wintertime look, granted we rarely get below 50 degrees. Besides the chic proportions, one thing I really love about this outfit is the plaid on the dress. It reminds me so much of my high school uniform, strange but true. When my dad saw this outfit he actually thought I was wearing my high school uniform! Ha, I'm not quite sure I could fit into it still, but it was nice of him to say.
