I love this outfit for many reasons. First, I am so into plaid this season, I just can’t seem to have enough plaid flannel tops in my closet. Second, this cloche (I had to look this up myself, so if you didn’t know, it’s a french word meaning bell, as in the shape of the hat). I bought it a few years ago and just found it in my closet. It’s like shopping for free ;) I typically wear cotton or knit beanies, but this
hat cloche, which origainally came from Anthropologie, adds a bit more class to the outfit. Next, my amazing TJMaxx find. This Elie Tahari coat was sitting all alone a month or so ago and I threw it in my cart before anyone else could get their hands on it. It’s technically a birthday present (which is in two weeks) but my husband graciously let me take it for a spin. Who am I kidding, he could really care less, haha! And finally, my gold pumps. My outfit actually started with these because I was planning on linking up with my friend Becky at Mommy in Heels for What She Wears: Gold. I’m more of a silver girl, but it’s practially impossible to avoid gold these days. Especially when it comes to a pair of shoes like these!

I am crazy about this look! I struggle with layering for some reason and I am always envious of those who do it well! I am hosting a blog hop, would love for you to join! http://bit.ly/IHP2eG
Thanks so much Tori! Just linked up ;)
Okay, so there are about a 1000 things I love about this: the cloche (so chic!), the stripes and plaid together, the camel coat with 3/4 sleeves and those shoes! Love, love, love, everything! Thanks for linking up:)
So sweet of you, thanks Meagan!
I am obsessed with that coat! I’m always amazed with how you pull an outfit together so effortlessly. And I agree with Tori that you layer so well. I still have 10 pounds until I reach my pre-pregnancy weight and it’s all in my mid-section. Layering just makes me look even bigger :( Any tips on dressing a post-partum body this season?
First of all, you look fantastic, I’ve seen you! But I understand that feeling of not being back to yourself. I’d still suggest layering, but maybe a bit differently. To avoid buying larger sizes you could look for open sweaters such as this one: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=8993&vid=1&pid=918223012 so you can cover in a non-restrictive way. This vest that I wore here: https://alovelyliving.com/back-in-the-patch/ is another great option. Also shift dresses (https://alovelyliving.com/a-shift-and-a-scarf/) give a beautiful loose shape. You can wear with tights, boots etc. Oh and scarves will totally pull the eye upward and away from your mid-section for the time being (https://alovelyliving.com/crossing-that-bridge/). Hope that helps! xx
Wow, thanks Marisa!! I love all of those ideas!
