The Fashion Magpie Tiger Skirt Rixo

What I Want to Wear RN.

I am dying over this pleated tiger-print skirt from Rixo (seen above) and would love to pair it with a black turtleneck bodysuit or — per the chic pea’s sartorial direction above — a chunky cream knit (<< on sale for $32!). (Also check out this chunky knit in the blush or white, also on sale!)

I’m still very much on the fence about whether or not this Emilia Wickstead will be seasonally appropriate for micro’s “sprinkle” (apparently you don’t have a full-on shower for second children!), as it was a biting 20 degrees at one point over the weekend, and so — I am wondering if I can finagle my bump into this dress variation on the printed skirt above? Too crazy? I think the seams might just work with my silhouette these days, but the print is a little intense for a midday baby shower. (Also love this, but think it’s a bit informal, and this, which I fear will be too narrow in the waist BUT LOVE. This might be just the ticket with it’s elasticized waist situation, or maybe this — so on-the-money in its tie-dye print. I bought this style before but found it dwarfed my frame; it might work better for me while pregnant.)

Not maternity-friendly so much, but a few other pieces I’m coveting:

+This cool knit combo dress, to be worn with the perfect black pump and red lips.

+It might be late in the season to be buying outerwear, but I love the length and pattern on this affordable coat, with white skinnies and Chanel flats…

+Another great knit at another great price.

+THESE BOOTS THO. Wear with jeans and a basic white tee and still feel like a trillion bucks.

+Into this cape (on sale for $35!), with its Louis-Vuitton-esque print. I’d wear with neutrals — a white or cream sweater, white skinnies.

+This floral dress is everything. Maybe for my 35th birthday??

+LOVE these Vejas with the lavender trim!

+My favorite dress this season was this Ganni leopard-print one, which worked well with my bump and I liked to pair with little kitten-heel ankle booties and occasionally a black fur vest over the top depending on whether we were in the throes of the polar vortex or not. This frilled mini in a similar print has also turned my head!

+How chic is this?! ($50!)

+These rainboots (I like them in that clay/gray color or the army green) look an awful lot like a more expensive pair I’ve been seeing all over the place…but cost only $25!

P.S. My sister just moved from London to New York and watching her navigate the transition has brought back all the feelings from our move in New York — there’s nothing quite like that awkward, disorienting middleground between homes.

P.P.S. The power of silence, a toast to my brother, and the weight of words.

  1. Oooh, I have long loved the silhouette of that Rhode Resort dress, and I adore that tie-dye print! That one gets my vote for a late winter/early spring sprinkle.

    Do you own anything by English Factory? That knit combo dress is SO adorable and is calling my name, but I’m curious about the quality.
