- Blue ruffle top: BR Outlet
- Gray bermudas: thrifted, chopped by me
- Japanese print flats: Target
This is my take on the two-thirds color scheme of red and blue, already demonstrated earlier in the week by S. (as French chic) and A. (as professional lady), both of them beautifully sidestepping the disastrous potential of looking like US Olympic hopefuls. My version is really a postpartum iteration of a maternity outfit that I rather liked: a cobalt blue tunic over a gray skirt with these ballet flats. Same color palette, different pieces. And I think I am in love with this rich blue and how it plays up my hair and skin color.
Of course, I’m grounding the whole outfit with shades of my favorite neutral — gray! Per our recent post on the subject, I definitely think that gray pants can be worn in the summer, particularly if worn with brown or colored accessories rather than black. You will not find me parting with my charcoal gray in any season, really.
Finally, I have a longish post in the work, I promise, in which I tackle in greater detail some of the challenges and choices I’ve been facing as a new mom with a postpartum body and breastfeeding duties. I’ll be answering some of the questions left in the comments section then, too, so hang tight as I perfect the new art of typing one-handed with a sleeping babe in the other arm!
