In the Trenches

Hi guys! Here’s a look I wore a few weeks ago, but didn’t get around to posting sooner as I’ve been feeling a bit “In the Trenches”.  I’m currently getting over the second upper respiratory infection I’ve managed to acquire throughout this pregnancy and boy has it taken its toll on me!  Congestion has actually been a constant throughout my pregnancy  and apparently its a constant for many women due to the increased blood flow to all mucous membranes, caused by the high levels of estrogen and progesterone during pregnancy.

Miami’s recent temperamental weather hasn’t been much help either, but at least its presented me the chance to wear one of my favorite statement pieces, this maxi sleeveless trench. You’ve seen me wear it on the blog before here, but I’ve worn it numerous times with everything from short skirts and high-waisted shorts to midi-skirts and jeans.  What makes this sleeveless trench a major statement piece is the dramatic length which can turn even the simplest cotton bodycon dress into a head turning ensemble.  Because being pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t turn heads in admiration!

Hope you guys have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

xoxo,

Martha

Sleeveless Trench

One of my favorite additions to my Fall wardrobe has been this sleeveless trench you see here. Not only is a sleeveless trench a great way of adding light layers and structure to any look, but it’s also very much in with the oh-so popular “menswear inspired” trend this season.  As you may have predicted, I found this little gem at Marshalls and immediately fell in love with the numerous possibilities of styling it!  I stuck to basics this time around with oxblood skinnies, a white tee and chunky gladiators, but I look forward to wearing it with contrasting, more feminine pieces very soon!
