Adam Lippes for Target Purchases

Last month I posted about the upcoming Adam Lippes for Target collab here. Well Sunday, the 27th was the big day and here's what I picked up!

The journals and pencil case will make some great stocking stuffers for Christmas, and I just love the idea of a buffalo plaid blanket for winter. I can see this getting a lot of use during TV time.

I ordered all of the above online, but then found myself at Target later in the day running rando errands. I did check out the fashions on display and to be honest, my skirt was NOT blown up... True I was wearing my maternity jeans, not a skirt, but you get what I'm saying. The blouses, dresses, and sweaters on offer were just okay and I didn't feel any particular garment would really add much to my current wardrobe. Or, should I say my anticipated wardrobe come January, when this baby is out and I've had some time to recover... Or, maybe I'm just more into homewares at the moment. Oh crap, is this what it means to next?! Wanting to buy decor instead of clothes!! Next thing you know I'll start knitting and making my own jam...

But hey, if you found some great pieces in the Adam Lippes collection for Target let me know in the comments below!

DVF Still Going Strong!!

dress-Diane Von Furstenberg(similarish here), heels-Nine West, necklace-Gifted via The Limited(more options here), watch-Nixon via Urban Outiftters

I've blogged this DVF dress before here and I'm super-excited that it fits AND flatters now that we're at 30 weeks of baby gestation. And yes, I do realize I'm sporting the Pittsburgh black n' gold, but that was not my intention when picking up this dress on super sale. It's just a great piece with a fun, yet wearable print. Sorry, I'm just a fair weather fan... 

Also, thanks to my friend Kat for this amazing necklace gifted last Christmas. Here we are at Karma in Denver, Colorado wearing said necklace, you can kind of see it glimmering. 

We're so cute! Miss you.

Polka Dots & Tacos!

 blazer-Gap(similar here), tee-ModCloth, pants-Mikkat Market(similar here), heels-Prabal Gurung for Target, necklace-Le Tote, rings-Jewel Mint

I've had these joggers for several years, you may recall them from this post. Also, this blazer has made more appearances on the blog than I can count. This tee was a recent "just for fun" purchase, posted here and I'm loving how this whole look came together. It's fun, graphic, chic, and because everything is in black and white, not too outlandish, or costumey. 

I wore this for a recent daycare tour as Mr. Keller and I are in the midst of trying to figure out where to put this baby once I return to work in the spring. I was going for, "I'm not like a regular mom, I'm a cool mom"/punk mom/bad ass mom/fashionista mom as in, no mom jeans or fat khakis for me, just because I'm giving birth to a person doesn't mean I'm not still hip! I almost wore my studded cuff, but I felt that would have been a stud-too-far... 

Also this blazer can still button!

Bump Proud

coat-Le Tote, dress/necklace-Banana Republic(similar necklace here), boots-Nine West(similar here), rings-Jewel Mint, bracelet-Michael Kors(similar here), watch-Nixon via Urban Outfitters, bag-G. H.Bass, tote-Better Magazine

Why yes, I am very pleased with myself feeling all sorts of pregnancy fierce-and-chic in this outfit, right?! You may recall this dress when I was considering it back a few months ago in this post, here. Now that's it's officially fall I'm loving how well it works with these boots and this sweater coat! So many elements of this look are werqing(!)--the fit, the pattern mixing, the overall chic, yet comfy feel. There's nothing like really FEELING yourself in an awesome outfit, especially at 7 months pregnant! 

As for the "B" tote, it was a gift after donating/subscribing to Better Magazine and it totes (get it?) suits me as Bernadette, and the tree illustration is subtly poetic, eh? Ah, tote bags the talisman of the liberally-minded arts contributor!

Maternity Normcore

blazer-Gap(similar here), pants-Gap Maternity, tunic-ModCLoth, flats-J.Crew Factory, necklace-Gifted, watch-Michael Kors(similar here), nails-Zoya

Another great blazer-framed bump moment, like this one here. Overall, this is fairly normcore, "getting the job done" type of outfit. I'm in the full-frontal pants discussed early this week here, and while this tunic isn't officially "maternity" it's becoming a great go-to piece.
