Who said that you can’t wear white after Labor Day weekend?
This outfit has been by far one of my favorite go-to pieces throughout my second trimester. In fact, both of my Phillip Lim shirts (white and navy) have been staple pieces, see feature here on Phillip Lim for Target and why it basically rocked my world. It got to a point where I was literally seeking the same cut from other designers and/or seeking additional colors from the same designer. Alas, no luck.
For the record, what works during the second trimester no longer works as I'm entering into third trimester, as I've recently discovered. In fact, I think that even here I am stretching the utility of my Phillip Lim shirts (no pun intended), since I was just shy of hitting the third trimester mark (for the record, your sixth month of pregnancy is supposed to end by Week 27). Thank you "What to Expect When you're expecting!!!"
Same kudos go to my trust Rachel Roy silk-knit shawl. All jokes about “Becky with the good hair” aside, this silhouette of this piece is absolute genius, and I couldn’t imagine my pregnancy wardrobe without it. Sometimes when you need that extra coverage (but nothing too stuff or hot given that you’ve got a bun in the oven), this is the garment for you.
These photos wEleere taken at Riverpark, which is a bit of an oasis right by the East River in the Murray Hill neighborhood. It’s a Tom Colicchio restaurant with lovely waterviews and even a little locally-grown farm. If you haven’t been, I highlight recommend it (coming soon to my "Eat Drink Love" series, as it truly feels like a slice of heaven that makes you forget all of the hustle and bustle of the city. Plus, it’s a great dining spot for kiddos, so it’s a win-win.
