Work Outfit Series: Under My White Coat #6 (Maternity Edition, 37 Weeks)

I have always been drawn to loose, flowy tops (Carolyn has always described my style as a little boho), which ended up being fortuitous since I was able to fit into many of them well into my third trimester.  I used to tuck this silk leopard print shirt into pencil skirts and slim cut pants during my pre-pregnancy days.  During pregnancy, I've chosen to wear it loose and untucked, but somehow the silk material allows for it to still appear professional.  

Here I paired them with my J.Crew Minnie trousers in the maternity cut, which have these discreet side elastic panels.  I'll definitely be wearing them post-pregnancy too!  These were a bit of a maternity-splurge, as my general philosophy throughout this pregnancy has been to spend as little as possible since I'd only be wearing these items for a few months.  And for those that are curious, I bought them in my pre-pregnancy J.Crew size around week 14 during a 30% off sale, and they fit me throughout my second and third trimester.  I wish they were just an inch longer as they sometimes appear a little too cropped, but for the most part, they're a higher quality work pant that you can easily wear multiple times a week.

Silk leopard-print tie shirt: French Connection (old).  Black trouser: J.Crew Minnie Maternity.  Handbag: Fendi Medium '2Jours Elite' in Dove (birthday gift from Dr. S!).  Studded flats: Stewart Weitzman 'Nubeads' Flats (on sale!).
