Christmas is just around the corner! It’s really sneaking up on us. Sometimes it’s fun to just go all out with the red and green. I paired this red cardigan with a festive green flannel scarf from Old Navy that’s sadly sold out online in this color but you might still be able to pick up in store.
The tank is my favorite maternity tank ever; it’s got support built-in, so I always feel most comfortable wearing it. It’s also long, so it covers the bum and will work throughout the whole 40 weeks.
My jeans are one of my very few pairs of maternity jeans that aren’t over-the-bump. They’re borrowed from my sister-in-law from when I was still pregnant with Vienna. They make a great first pair of maternity jeans if you’re thinking about investing. Or AG jeans, my main love.
My boots are Stuart Weitzman — my first pair. They’re surprisingly comfortable for being heeled. A friend asked me the other day whether I recommend going with the Lowlands or the Highlands, and here’s what I responded, just in case other mamas have the same question:
I’d say it depends on your lifestyle. Highlands are so sexy bc they elongate your legs, but they’re heels so you can’t really wear them running after toddlers (more of a going-out boot or mommy alone-time boot). That being said, they’re very comfortable even though they’re high-heeled; I can wear them for hours, no problem. Lowlands are flat but still sexy bc of the over-the-knee and their general classy, slinky, leg-hugging design; you can still go out in them, etc, and it’s a little easier to chase kiddos. If I’m by myself taking care of Vienna, I’d only wear Lowlands; if Mr. Bond is with me and our activity isn’t heel-prohibitive, I love to bust out the Highlands. The first pair I got was black Highlands when Vienna was still small, and I was able to push her in the stroller for the most part. Since her becoming a toddler, I naturally gravitate towards flats bc I can get a lot more wear out of them. I’d highly recommend the black color in either if you’re nervous about maintaining suede. Any color you go with, spray with suede protector first and be mindful of your beautiful investment. Both feel amazing on — they are silky on the inside and the suede is buttery-soft.
