Yes, it's an Ann Taylor sort of day!  So many people dismiss Ann Taylor, thinking it's just a store filled with boring pantsuits and twinsets.  I love Ann Taylor because I can find amazing pieces that are fun, on-trend but classic enough to wear years later.  The quality is also stellar.

I purchased this sweater soon after having Emerson.  I was very large and excited I could go into one of my favorite stores and find something that would fit my postpartum body.  However I did a lot of stretching to the hem of this sweater to get it to cover my waistband – now it's pretty misshapen and rolls up on me.  I decided to try it out tucked in today as that I love the color, weight and details (not too deep cowl, puffed sleeves) of the sweater.  Tucking in was also a smart choice because horrors of horrors… this skirt is starting to be too big!  Man, I just bought it!

Also seeing today that my weight loss is really showing how soft I am.  Monday I went to the gym with my sister and I have been trying to do more yoga and crunches and such at home during commercial breaks and in the morning before the whole house wakes up.  I hope to fit the gym into my schedule at least twice a week – we have a date to go again on Friday morning.

BTW I totally cut my own bangs last week.  I hated the result and have been blending them into my hair, but this morning they kind of work!

    I keep wanting to try the belt around the waist or under the bust. When I try it, the outfit looks good but then I test it out by sitting down and the belt is uncomfortable. Am I doing something wrong?

    I’m a size 12 and I just feel like I look ridiculous with some of my tummy muffins peering around the edges of the belt. Is it all in my head? Would it be possible to take a pic of yourself with the big belt while seated and maybe show how us larger gals can pull it off?

    You look great! I love the navy and black together. Perfect shade of navy for pairing with black.

    And you are losing so much weight and looking good! Very inspirational for me – I need to lose baby weight as well! Not being able to tie my shoes without some effort just is not how I want to live the rest of my life!

    Your hair looks amazing in these pictures! Love it!
    And congratulations on your skirt being too big. That’s great news.

    The first thing I thought when I saw this picture was how GORGEOUS your hair looks! If you could just fly down to Georgia and cut my hair, I’d really appreciate.


    Also, love the outfit!

    You look fantastic… head to toe! Your hair is fantastic.

    I long for an animal print skirt like that one, but I don’t think I can pull it off as well as you can.

    Allie, you can send me the skirt–you know, since it’s too big for you now 😉

  11. January 20, 2011 / 1:44 am

    LOVE the skirt and you look absolutely fabulous! You’re shrinking before our eyes! 🙂

    Love the hair. I am not such a fan of the blue sweater with the black and white skirt though…red would look better IMO, or maybe orange. The blue sorta…almost matches but not quite. I’d go wth either matching (black) or more contrast, like a brighter colour.

    The weight loss looks great!

  13. January 20, 2011 / 12:42 am

    I love this outfit AND that you’re sporting this deep blue color with such a sassy skirt. You look great today!!!

  14. January 20, 2011 / 12:03 am

    You look amazing today! The navy blue is an unexpected choice to pair with the skirt.

  15. January 19, 2011 / 11:18 pm

    Holy cow, girl! You look fantastic! This is my favorite outfit recently and your hair is amazing. Perfection.

  16. January 19, 2011 / 10:50 pm

    That skirt is beyond cute!

  17. January 19, 2011 / 7:51 pm

    Love your bangs! I really like this outfit. You looks sleek and sassy 🙂

  18. January 19, 2011 / 7:25 pm

    I was actually thinking… wow I really like her hair today, before I even read about cutting your own bangs. So… I’d say it works!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the outfit today!

  19. January 19, 2011 / 5:18 pm

    Can you please set me straight on the “never wear dark blue and black together” thing? I have heard that so many times. I love your outfit!

  20. January 19, 2011 / 5:05 pm

    Love this outfit and I think the bangs do work – Great job!!

  21. January 19, 2011 / 5:03 pm

    I like your hair too. I’ve been nervous about tucking in sweaters…maybe I’ll give it a go after seeing how well it works in your outfit. Congrats on your weightloss. I’m a WW lifetime member working on getting back to goal.

    The first thing I noticed was how good your hair looks so good job doing that yourself, that’s a BOLD MOVE.

  23. January 19, 2011 / 4:10 pm

    Your bangs are cute!!!

  24. January 19, 2011 / 4:00 pm

    Your hair is adorable! Love it!

  25. January 19, 2011 / 3:53 pm

    I would totally rip that outfit off and wear it myself today! That is so cute!! The skirt is amazing (I know I’ve told you that before!) but I love the top and belt (and tights and shoes…) You look really great today and I LOVE this outfit!
