Hot mama Rachel was working on child number two when we shot this feature. Maternity clothing can certainly leave something to be desired, so we decided to mix it up with this outfit. Print mixing that is. We started with everyone’s staple - jeans as the basis for our pattern play here. We added a black Gap maternity t-shirt and then topped that off with a silky gold metallic long-sleeved blouse from Amelia’s that had black velvet piping for extra zip. The oversized hounds-tooth pattern long blazer by Avenue, dresses up the blouse and t-shirt and also provides us with a graphic to play off of. This is where the accessories come in; the floral multicolor scarf works perfectly with the hounds tooth as a foil to the geometry. It also allowed us to go bold with the other pieces such as Rachel’s favorite red flats, and the purple patent leather handbag with red piping. Classy, comfortable and stylish while almost nine months pregnant, she is ready to run errands, or simply run after her cutie-pie four- year-old daughter, Phoenix!
