Neutrals and a Pop of Blue

Perfect Shirt c/o Conversation Pieces | Skirt: Thrifted | Belt: H&M | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Purse: Gift from SIL

The last time I wore this skirt guys, I was 36.5 weeks pregnant and you all loved that outfit.  So I’m back here today to show you how I’d style it without a baby bump (ignore the still leftover baby belly chub though).  Since the cobalt blue color is bright enough on its own, I decided to wear it with a bunch of neutrals… grey, brown and black.  This is a big deal for me guys, as mixing black tones and brown tones used to always be a no-no in my book, in fact, I’d always scold my husband for mixing those in his attire until I realized the cool kids did it.  I’m kind of cheating though since my heels already contain both those colors in one.  No, the scolding isn’t always one-sided, he scolded me for already having worn this skirt in a prior outfit post, where I then told him that the more I remixed my current clothes, the less I’d buy new clothes.  😉  And then the baby started crying and scolded us both for not feeding him immediately when he was hungry…
