Stripes & Checkers


Hello guys! Happy New Month and hope you are doing great. I had an amazing day at work today. My coworkers organized a surprise baby shower which caught me completely off guard. It was an emotional moment for me and I felt so loved. I spent the remaining part of my day opening all the gifts. Every time I stare at the baby items we have purchased or received as gifts, I feel truly blessed; in a few months, I will be a mom.

In this post, I am wearing a Zara stripped pant. Finding the perfect fit for my increasing belly bump is difficult so I went a size up to achieve the best fitting for the pant. I used a belt band to hold the buckle in place while wearing a blazer in my regular size. I completed my look with Miu Miu checkered pumps.




Outfit: Zara blazer (here) // Zara pants (here; love this here) // Forever 21 tee (similar here) // Miu Miu pumps (sold out) // Ray ban glasses (here, love this here) // Lipstick (here, love this here) // Nail polish (here) // Zara Clutch (here, similar here)…Hubby is wearing Express blazer and shirt.

Thank you for stopping by…have a wonderful day!
