Peacocks & Studs

This dress is a tunic/cover/shirtdress hybrid and it has pockets!!! I picked it up during a recent Anthro sales blast in anticipation of wearing it for our beach vacay coming up in September. When I got into the dressing room I realized it had an underslip!!! So it's like two pieces for the price of one AND allows for way more outfitting options besides a swimsuit coverup. Here, I wore it casually, yet belted. I think with pregnancy it's still important to highlight one's figure. Yes there IS the temptation of just wearing comfy sack-like garments, but this is a time to celebrate the body.
Also, I love the irony of the peacock print being rendered in black n' white. The studded bag from Le Tote plays off the pattern and provides a bit of unexpected texture to this overall look AND it's a bit of a style mashup with the bobo tunic and punk-rock purse. You know how I love mashups(here, here, and here)!
