Burgundy Monochromatic Dressy Outfit (Non-Maternity!)

Vest: Vintage but similar faux option here, here and here (haven’t tried any of these, but all great prices!) | Skirt: Purchased at my local Winners, but this is similar style | Turtleneck: Club Monaco | Shoes: Valentino Rockstud (gently used for a great price!) | Purse: Gucci (unavailable) this is another gucci alternative & love this YSL one too tho, also this one is under $20!

Burgundy has long been one of my go-to fall/winter colours. I love the way it looks with blonde hair! This skirt is non-maternity. It was a Winner’s find. It has an elastic waist and an a-line silhouette, so it works for my 37 week preggo body! It’s size small, so I will be able to wear it post pregnancy too!

This turtleneck is from Club Monaco. It’s great for layering, as it’s thin and fitted enough  to wear under other pieces. I especially like wearing under sleeveless sheath dresses for an extra layer of warmth and chic alternative to a blazer or a button-down blouse. It’s a strethcy wool so it works well over my bump. I have it in black and camel as well.

My fur vest is formally a vintage fur coat. I had my talented mamma remove the sleeves, so it’s an upcyled piece, which I love. I do prefer my fur vests to fall below the hips as I find them more flattering on me and also more versatile and easy to wear with other pieces. It’s another great layering piece and looks great layered over lighter weight coats as well.

My shoes and handbag are great investment pieces. Patent is pretty classic and I can dress these up with jeans and a blouse or blazer or wear with a cocktail dress or a work dress too – great for work receptions/events or after work cocktails.

I love lace and natural fabrics, so this is a perfect dressy fall outfit for my body (bump and all) and style personalty.  Style tip: I chose a monochromatic look with the skirt and top, which is great to help elongate your body, which is a great look for pregnant women. (Perfect for petite women too!)
