tuxedo jacket + stripes (3)

The tuxedo jacket trend was huge for spring and continues going into fall. I scored this one a few seasons ago (last seen here), and I am still enjoying every wear. We are getting an early preview of fall temperatures in NYC with the lows dropping into the 60’s in the evenings. I usually opt for a ‘fall on the top / summer on the bottom’ look for the wavering temperatures because I can shed the jacket in the sun and layering it back on in the shade or post sunset.

Can we also talk about my maternity slimming secret – a blazer! I swear, when I layer one on it almost disguises the bump. It is amazing how slimming it is when you don’t have a clear shot of your profile. That being said, these pictures are a few weeks old as I got a little behind on posting with our travels + move (sorry!). (Pictures taken at 25 weeks, currently at 28 weeks)
