Black on white, white on black

It takes me forever to get dressed now…partly due to the ‘selecting the outfit’ phase!  I’ve attributed this to a few factors:

  • weight gain due to pregnancy
    • I’ve lost half of my pregnancy weight and haven’t really bought any new clothes aside from the occasional cardigan and blouse. As a result, my wardrobe seems very limited (and snug!).
  • breastfeeding
    • the limited clothing choices I have is reduced even more to those items that I can  comfortably nurse in.

And to make matters more trying are the multiple weddings we’ve attended in the past couple weeks.  I refuse to buy or sew new outfits for every event so I’ve had to come up with creative ways to wear pieces that I already own. The dress below was first worn to my graduation and then later to a family event.  Both times I wore it with a shirt under for a semi-casual look but for a wedding I wanted something more formal so I wore a black blazer over. I added a few bling pieces for some sparkle as well.
