Most of the outfit posts you've seen lately were a few weeks late. NOW I'm finally on track! This was what I wore yesterday to church. There was a two-week break where Chase and I didn't see each other so I didn't have anyone to take pictures of my outfits. Lame, I know.. But this is Chase's last week until he comes home to me and does the dishes that have been piling up!!!

I got this tweed jacket (among many other clothes) from an unni right when I found out I was pregnant and this is the first time I've busted it out. I had a hard time styling it since it felt too preppy and grandma but I still liked it so I kept it this whole time...and especially since they reminded me of the Chanel tweed jackets. I decided to go all out classy and paired it with a "not so L" BD and pearls. The flower was a last minute addition to keep the jacket from flying open every time I moved.

For more inspiration on how to wear Chanel-like jackets, check out this post by The Glitter Guide. I plan on reverting to it once I fit into my pre-preg clothes!

    1. How roomy is it? I normally wear an xs or s and am pretty stinkin petite. (5'3" 105lbs pre-pregnancy) Would a small be too big for me? P.S. I loathe maternity clothes shopping with a firey passion.

  9. I've loved seeing your outfits, even though I am ahead of you, bigger and ungainly. I copied and wore a maxi dress recently and was so comfortable in it!

  12. Really cute way to style a tweed jacket - I think Coco would approve. ;)
    I have a dark tweed jacket that I haven't worn much, but maybe a flower pin is what it needs. Going to turn one of the fabric flowers I've been DIYing for Christmas gift toppers into a pin! :)
