Tuesday, August 16: Tuck it in
I decided to go with a nice men’s, white undershirt tank (a wife-beater, if you will) with a cute navy tie, tucked into my favorite maternity short.
Were you worried?
No, this is what I’m actually wearing today.
Yes, the wife-beater, my husband’s tie, and my favorite maternity short made the cut, but in a much different way.
Obviously, for me and my bowl-fulla-jelly-belly, tucking any form of shirt into short would just look, well ridiculous. So I racked my brain and came up with a different approach. Why not tuck a tie into a cardigan? Of course the belly was still a bit of an obstacle, but I thought the general affect and idea was a good one.
Yesterday I saw that lots of women listed their articles, and I thought that was a good idea:
Wife beater – Walmart, Fruit of the Loom ~$5 for a 3 or 5 pack
Cardigan – Wet Seal, sale rack $7
Maternity Short – Ross, sale rack ~$8
Men’s Tie – J. Crew ~$30-$40
Shoes – Target, Mossimo, on sale ~$10
Leave the House: Plan to! Maternity short shopping was a big, fat FAIL yesterday, so I plan to return to Ross where I’ve had past success. Also, the Elrod house needs AA Batteries ‘n such, so errands will be ran.
Critique: I feel cute! Which most Mommies know, doesn’t happen often. So today I give this outfit an A+ and I may just put this combo into the regular rotation.
Oh. Just had to strike and share my Tyra-couture-pose.
“Wanna be on top?!”
With love, Malorie
