Plaid & Check


So many of my clothes, and especially my tops, are focused on comfort that it feels so dressed up when I’m wearing something other than cotton! When I worked behind the chair I would dress up a bit every day, but now I’m comfort-focused through and through.

I found this cute check/plaid top at Pink Blush Maternity a few weeks ago and was excited to get it in the mail. I’m not a huge fan of collars, and I loved that thisΒ shirt didn’t have one but it still felt like a slightly nicer option than my go-to grey t-shirt!

It fits great, there is plenty of room for my growing bump, and I’m sure I’ll be wearing it for as long as I can!

I found some other great plaid and check options too for those of you who aren’t currently looking for maternity options! I love the puffy sleeves from option #2 below!

    You look absolutely radiant! Pregnancy looks good on you. πŸ™‚ Would you mind sharing the brand/color of your lipstick? It’s so pretty.

      It may be FIG by Smashbox. She was wearing that in an earlier post this month and I went right out to buy it. It’s beautiful.

    I really enjoy plaid as well! It just screams fall and winter, plus you can dress it up or down…there really isn’t a down fall with plaid.

    Your #10, Old Navy has a very similar option. I bought one a few weeks back and it’s become a staple in my wardrobe!

    You look great Kate!

    Hi my name is Karen. Kate you are adorable! I came across your hair tutorial and I’m so glad I did. Love them. I was wondering what you use on your hair prior to curling?
