Black and Yellow

Spring is in full force here, I’m pregnant, and I’ve been waiting for the right maternity jeans to show up at my door. Literally. My belly is getting too big for the old hair-tie-with-your-normal-jeans trick and I’m waiting for a couple of orders for maternity jeans to arrive and try. Until then, maxi skirts are what I’ve got.

Yellow, black and stripes? Sure, why not! I remember when I got over my fear of looking like a bumble bee and how much I ended up liking yellow with black. Yellow really knows how to cheer up a black and neutral outfit. You should try it sometime!

(In the past when I've worn this skirt a few people asked for striped maxi options where the stripes are further apart, like in the skirt I'm wearing.  Option 5 is similar in that sense.  Also, Option 2 below is black/tan, not black/white.)

  1. ALl I can think now is that song "black and yellow black and yellow black and yellow."
    But you do a great job at not looking like a bumble bee! I love the skirt with the yellow. Maybe the key is there's more white in the skirt than black? I'll have to experiment.

    You are elegant simplicity personified. You wear pregnancy well. :)

  3. Your bump looks adorable! :) I've been a big fan of maxi skirts through my pregnancy - they are stretchy enough that you can wear non maternity ones too! Until I got my first pair of maternity jeans I was in skirts and dresses a lot as well, it's a nice comfortable option :)

  4. You have convinced me I need a striped maxi skirt! You look gorgeous!

  5. I've been hesitant to try a striped maxi, but I'm loving how it looks on you! Can't wait to hear about your reviews of the maternity jeans!

  6. Oh I love this outfit!!!!! I can't wait to start wearing maxi skirts and dresses. This is the perfect outfit for a growing pregnant belly. Love it Audrey!!!!!

    I just did a black and white maxi skirt, white t, jean jacket and my yellow was jewlery. Loved how springy these colors looked together.

  8. Maxi skirts are my go-to wardrobe staple when I was pregnant as well. It's like sweatpants without the legs...super comfy without looking so sloppy. Nice pairing of black and yellow! Can't wait for your verdict on maternity jeans. That was one wardrobe necessity I wanted, but never found the perfect pair when I was pregnant. I'm interested to see what you find.


  9. Love this outfit! I was wondering if you could write a blog post about how to wear colored shoes because i have some, but don't wear them as much as I want to! thanks!

  10. Adorable! Have you considered buying a Bella Band? I have one and I loved it!

  11. I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Great work!
