Back to Black

I'm going back to wearing all black again. Pregnancy does that to you.

{Sweater: Jessica Simpson Maternity, Leggings: ON Maternity (old), Booties: Madden Girl, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff}

I have to admit I splurged a bit on this sweater. I told myself I wasn't buying any more maternity clothes and then all of a sudden this top appeared in front of me. That always happens, doesn't it? No? Well, it did to me and I bought it. But I've gotten so much wear out of it that I think it was certainly justified.

Now, let's talk about this bag. This was a Christmas present from my husband and my first Rebecca Minkoff bag... and I'm in love. The color is so pretty and totally me. And I love that the straps allow for me to wear it so many different ways. Talk about a versatile bag!

You look SO cute!!! You can probably wear that sweater next winter too. It doesn't look like it will look like a maternity piece. Not much longer girl!!

That's a great sweater--and will be in April too. Hubby nabbed a terrific bag. I say that mostly because I really like the color...I don't know enough to have an opinion about any other aspect of the bag. :)

Haha, no shame in wearing black. It's a super flattering color! And I totally feel you on items appearing out of nowhere. You deserve a little splurge--you're so far along in your pregnancy! Almost there! And besides, it looks gorgeous and warm, which is really important now haha.

And that bag is the perfect pop of color. Props to your husband for getting it for you! I'm all about versatility!

Have a wonderful week, Yi-Chia!

You don't have to be pregnant to want to wear all black during these dark winter months. It just seems to have a draw.
