Navy is the New Black

I definitely own more little navy dresses than I do little black dresses. I'm not sure why, but I've always preferred navy over black.

{Blazer: c/o PB&J Boutique (old), Dress: H&M (old), Belt: Target, Shoes: Forever 21 (old), Necklace: Bauble Bar, Bracelets: David Yurman, Tiffany's}

I confess that I own about 5-6 navy dresses. They are my go-to's like black dresses are to other women. I'm not sure why, but I'm just more drawn to them. And the fact that I found one in my closet that also works while I'm pregnant, just makes me love it more.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had a rather productive one ourselves. We started painting the nursery, and by "we", I mean my husband painted. I spent that time doing what I do best... out shopping for decor. We also bought some furniture for the room (which will be delivered in the next few months) and we're pretty excited for it all to come together!

I do not own a single little navy dress and I have been thinking how wrong that is for at least a few months. I am going to start my search up again. You look adorable in your dress. I had a productive weekend too. I got a lot of work done.

I hardly own anything navy...I am not sure why. I don't even have one navy dress. I think it's because I struggle with styling the color. Need to take cues from you! And yay for getting things going on the nursery. Can't wait to see it all come together!!

Navy is a bit cheerier than black - so it makes sense that you would prefer it! Besides you have probably NEVER needed the slimming effects that black provides. So excited to hear the decorating is in full swing!!

Lookin super good girl! I'm seriously impressed with how many pre-pregnancy pieces you've been able to work with the growing belly. The less money spent on maternity clothes means more money to spend on the baby! :-)

Meredith said...

I love navy and pink together. It's such a pretty combo...and this dress looks great belted, especially with your adorable baby bump. I'm sure the nursery is looking awesome!

I do like navy sometimes more than black, depending on my mood:D I find it's a less severe colour, and a great neutral. This dress looks great on you. Look at you and your growing bump!

love it paired with the pink.

Alyssa said...

I used to own more navy dresses too, but since moving to NY I switched to having more black...I love the little pops of pink you added to your look!

Fabulous Petite said...

I remember when I was pregnant that I did not buy a lot of maternity clothes. I guess because my tummy was not that big. I like the blue/pink/camel combo. It is like such a universal combo. You are one of the cutest pregnant blogger i been seeing lately.
