Monday Mingle Outfit Post: Faux Fur and Sparkles

This weekend I had the pleasure of being one of the judges of the Cocoa Couture Fashion Show at MOSI’s Festival of Chocolate. Despite feeling (and I’m guessing looking) incredibly pregnant and swollen, I tried to do the gig justice by showing up looking semi-presentable. How did I do? HAHA! Please excuse the wrinkles…That’s what I get for trying to fit in a photo taking sesh AFTER I’ve been riding around in a car. Le sigh.

I paired a Hurley LBD with a LOFT hooded faux fur vest (only available in petite now), A Pea in the Pod Secret Fit Belly leggings, Nine West Camelot boots (which you might recognize from the sneak peek I gave you at this look yesterday), a Forever 21 ring and BaubleBar’s Mix Burst earrings.

I was elated to be able to bust out my faux fur vest as it’s been ridiculously warm in Tampa this winter. Here’s to hoping that we get to play around with this cooler weather a bit longer!

Don’t forget to join us, Momtrends and Glamamom for Monday Mingle this week by linking up your fashion posts. One lucky participant will win this lovely houndstooth scarf from Happy Scarf!

    You look beautiful, and so stylish! I actually showed a friend these photos earlier today, because we were discussing how it’s so much harder to dress when you’re pregnant. You are superwoman!

    Aww, look at you! I love this outfit, you look fantastic! I’m shamelessly coveting the boots, and those BaubleBar earrings are to die. (I love BaubleBar, they were my one-stop-Christmas-shopping for my mom and sister; so fun, so original.)



  1. [...] I was very happy with the outfit I came up with and surely had a lot more fun with this, then I would have had in my matchy matchy outfit. I actually found that I also really like this top with one of my older denim skirts. A bit more casual and I’m not sure which outfit I like best. For some more dressing inspiration check out some other ladies on this visible Monday and Monday mingle. [...]
