Sunday, June 9, 2013: birthday party
One of Luka’s little buddies celebrated his second birthday, and we got to join in the festivities. I wanted to wear something comfy, to be prepared for an afternoon of toddler-herding (should be an Olympic sport). As it happened, Luka turned out to be a fairly model guest, although he did try to put the “moves” on a fellow party-goer; when she didn’t seem thrilled with the prospect of a hug, he decided to wow her with a crawl version of the moonwalk.
Not much I can say about my outfit (it’s pretty standard maternity wear at this point), but it does go to show how great red can be as an accent colour.

I know I wore this dress a mere two weeks ago, but bear with me. I love it, and I need to stretch out my wardrobe as far as it will go (literally) over the next 3 months. This is a more colourful iteration of the outfit, featuring one of my fave accent colours – what else, cobalt blue.

With summer getting all hot and heavy with us, I am reminded of why polyester pants deserve a special place in sartorial hell. Promise to self: buy better quality pants as soon as reasonably possible.

Holy bad lighting, Batman! Speaking of things I wore not that long ago, here is my polka dot skirt again. Instead of cream, I used pale lilac as a pairing “neutral”. I had a few people say that I looked like a candy – must have been the pastel colours. Incidentally, my outfit was probably highly unsuitable for the weather we ended up having – which included an afternoon tornado warning. Thankfully, I rarely have to interact with the elements during my work day, so I can dress to suit my fancy, not the weather. A good thing in Edmonton, no matter what the season.

Another take on my brown “maternity” dress. I don’t wear a lot of brown, so it actually feels like a fresh alternative to black. Cropped jackets are amazing for this stage of pregnancy. As are these Ferragamos – they make my swollen, elephantine feet look positively svelte.

This DvF shirt-dress was a lucky consignment clearance rack find – it only cost $18. Its lightweight silk-blend fabric is great for summer, and the print is funky yet subdued (due to the neutral colours). My Tiffany-blue Varina flats add a great pop of colour to the brown tones. I just wish my legs weren’t so pale – one reason why I always end up missing my nylons during the summer months. Oh well!
