I’ve been seeing SO MANY checkered coats on Instagram and Youtube these days that I was starting to feel a little left out. Just kidding! But, I was inspired to shop this trend for myself. As I am sure you have noticed if you do follow me online I do have a very simple style. I like the odd statement piece here and there, but for the most part I am a very casual dresser. That’s why I think I am loving this trend so much because it feels a little different then my normal coat, but not too out there. Perfecto!
I picked up this little number at Zara, but they are literally EVERYWHERE this season. Both is coat and blazers. If you are thinking of shopping for one yourself I would recommend Zara, ASOS, or Top Shop! I have worn mine several times already and find you can pair it with just about anything, on this particular day I had paired it with my maternity jeans and a cozy turtleneck. It was Thanksgiving so I needed my comfy and stretchy attire. 😉

So, when I was away in Arizona it snowed at home in Alberta, now I am back and it’s hot AGAIN! I feel like the cold weather is avoiding me, and I am probably one of the only crazy people who is like BRING ON THE COLD!!! When the mornings are chilly and the afternoons are boiling it can be hard to get dressed, so that is where pieces that are easily layered come in handy.
This little striped number from PinkBlush is one of those perfect layering pieces, you could easily pair it with tights and a leather jacket, but it’s so nice and lightweight for those warm afternoons. Plus grey and white stripes…need I say more?
When I took these photos we were in the midst of the heated afternoon so I went with just the dress and a pair of ankle booties which I loved paired together! Cute maternity dresses are always the comfiest choice over those growing bumps too, right ladies?!
The lovely people at PinkBlush want to offer one of you lovely people the chance to get your hands on some of their clothes too! We have a $75.00 gift card that could have your name on it! All you have to do is go to my instagram (@withstripes) give me a follow and comment on the giveaway post! I will be DMing the winner next Friday October 13 (spooky ;)) to let you know that you have won. PinkBlush has a ton of clothes that are great for us preggo’s but they also have lot’s of non-maternity wear to choose from as well. (I think the dress I’m styling would look great on someone not pregnant also)
What kind of weather are you guys experiencing? Are you a cold weather loving weirdo like me, or the exact opposite? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading as always!

It’s finally feeling like sweater weather outside, and my heart is singing! One of the things I’ve been most excited about this pregnancy is the fact that I am having a winter baby! Which means I can wear giant cozy sweaters over my bump, and that I won’t be 9 months pregnant in the heat of August (sorry if that’s you, I was there last year!) Right now is always a tricky time of year when it comes to getting dressed because it’s pretty chilly in the mornings but by afternoon you’re boiling! Thanks for that, September. Today though was a consistently chilly day, it was amazing!
I did a little shopping at Zara the other day and picked up a few new fall items that will fit over my growing belly. Including this bright red sweater that I absolutely love! Red is everywhere this year, and I am definitely feeling it.
What styles are you most excited to start rocking this fall?! Pregnant, or not 😉
