A Tale of Two Dresses (See Jane Wear)

September 1st: not quite fall but feels like the official transition out of summer.  For the next month, I'll enjoy light jackets and bare legs without oppressive humidity.  I bought my last pair of over-the-knee boots at Nordstrom nearly two years ago and they are still in awesome condition considering how much I wear them and how brutal Chicago winters can be; they were easily worth the investment!  So, when I saw this other Stuart Weitzman pair with a low heel at Nordstrom, I knew I had to jump on them early for fear that they'd sell out before the first leaf falls. I did the same with easy sweater dresses while perusing Nordstrom.  Yes, I bought myself two of them (hey, they're different styles) and yes they're both black; but honestly, they're something I can wear now and later on with tights--even 9 months pregnant and especially postpartum!  (I'm a seasoned shopper and can assure you that the best things often sell out before you can even wear them.) Dressing after a baby is born is quite a feat, but with these easy investments under my belt, I feel confident that I still be stylish this fall no matter what shape my body is in.

*Thanks to Nordstrom for patterning with this post!

The Good + the Bad (See Jane Wear)

You guys: I only have a few weeks left with this bump.  I have some good news and some bad news, depending upon why you follow my blog. I have about a month left of maternity outfits yet to feature.  Perhaps you're thrilled that they'll be over or maybe you'll miss them.  Either way, one month left of them.  Also, I'll have some post-baby looks coming on the blog next.  Again, this may interest you or not but hey, it's real life over here at See (Anna) Jane.  Full disclosure: it may be a tough time for my style (especially considering I will most likely be having another c-section--this baby is also breech)--but I'm going to give the ol' postpartum college try.

A Favorite Flat (See Jane Wear)

top (old but similar and also here), jeans, shoes (similar here, here and here), bag
 I love wearing these woven flats.  Heels aren't always an option for me these days (pregnancy throws your balance off a bit) and I swear, every single time I wear these, people compliment them.  They look way more expensive than they were (I bought them at Zara) and are also super comfortable.  Sometimes, you just need to keep it simple.
