Kaleidoscope Print + Pencil Skirt + Vintage Bag

I found this incredible mirror-print top at one of my favorite local vintage/resale stores and wanted to style it in a professional-but-not-remotely-business-casual manner. Pencil skirts fit that bill, but I didn't think they were flattering on me, so I don't own one. I spent a few minutes sifting around in my drawers when I found a black maxidress that had never reached its style potential. Inspiration struck! I pulled up the dress to make it shorter, topped it with the mirror-print shell and voila! I added nude heels, a chunky necklace and my favorite vintage butterfly purse.

Psst. . .I've got a (style) secret. . . That pencil skirt is really a maxidress!
I LOVE my vintage 1960s butterfly bag from Retro 101 in St. Louis.

Crazy prints are a fun way to camouflage a growing baby bump, but also can also show it off. 
The necklace is a family heirloom of sorts; we've never been sure who owned it first (my great aunt? my great grandmother? a long-lost late cousin?). My sister has been nice enough to let me wear it, uncontested. Actually, she probably forgot I have it!
