I wore this about a week ago. I have been surprised again and again by what still fits at 22 weeks. I love a deep rich purple it goes well with my coloring. I find that it's easier to find what I consider crappy purple in clothing. Crappy purple is a shade that has gray and or brown undertones that causes the color to look muddy rather than crisp. Not only do I look bad in muddy colors, but I don't like looking at muddy colors.
This blouse is a faux wrap, with flutter sleeves and a v-neck from Banana Republic. I have an identical one in black. I am more please with the fit now
than I was before I was pregnant because these blouses were not available in petite -- so it's longer than I need. The belly makes it a bit shorter so I don't feel like I am drowning in it.
Speaking of my fascination with purple of late, I must share that I am having a little girl and I am planning a nursery in shades of purple, red-violet and lavender accented with shades of chartreuse. So that may explain some of my current fascination.
If you're still with me, here's the rest of what I'm wearing. The suit is Tahari, I had tailored last year.and I am wearing Lands End patent heels in arctic gray.
