Shades of Blue

2:30 PM Mary Conley 0 Comments

I didn’t realize how many shades of blue I was wearing until I added these photos to this post. I wore this outfit for our Headliner Luncheon during Memphis Fashion Week featuring Rachel Roy. Rachel was so sweet to send influencers a variety of clothing of our choice to wear to the events! I was hesitant of what to pick out due to my belly, thinking nothing would fit me. Turned out everything I ordered fit perfectly except the dress for this luncheon! I didn’t know what to do I had ordered a size up and the zipper was still inches from closing! The dress I planned on wearing was actually the pink one that Hunter and Collins are wearing, we would have been triplets!
I had all my other outfits planned for MFW and didn’t want to break them up but I still had no idea on what to wear for the luncheon. The night before the luncheon was the trunk show and Rachel Roy was selling her stuff and I tried lots of things on and jackets were the only thing working. I walked away with this gorgeous mint colored jacket that has matching pants that are to die for!!! Oh, I would have loved to wear the pants, they are high wasted and have front buttons. Anyways, those weren’t going to work and I had to come up with something from my closet. I have had this dress for years and wore it quite a bit during my first pregnancy and before that! I’m hoping I didn’t stretch it out because I would like to wear it post baby!

Wearing booties wasn’t the plan but it stormed the night before the event and the temperature dropped dramatically! These booties are my go to with the dress and kept me warm.

The Breakdown:
This outfit was thrown together last minute since my originally dress didn’t fit. Once I found this blazer I had to figure out the rest. The night before I wore a jacket and joggers and the next night was a wearing a solid colored dress and long blazer so I knew I didn’t want to wear anything like that. Joggers and fitted dresses are really all that fit me and I didn’t want to wear jeans to this luncheon and was very happy to find this striped number in my closet. I wore this dress when I found out I was pregnant with Myles and these booties, something about this navy combo I love. The mint blazer made it feel spring like, it is April after all, and the headband scarf was a last minute add to change up my everyday curled hair.
