Look of the Week- Leather Moto Jacket + Maxivia

So it’s my birthday week, which means the celebration is already at full speed. My birthday is actually Saturday, the 12th. I will be 35!

I know Greg is planning a huge party because every single family member is flying in from all over the world. My mom, sisters, brother in Nigeria, aunt. Everyone. I feel so blessed and loved.

Of course, I don’t know the deets. All I know is that I have started the celebration. I will be wearing some sort of glitter + sequin piece all week, or perhaps..the rest of the month. Haha.

My denim shirt is from Banana Republic, but old! I found the exact replica by Diesel for purchase here.

So in the process of searching for links for this outfit, I found this skirt and yup, purchased. They come in different colors, but I got the rust. Can’t beat the $59 tag! Here’s another similar skirt here that I absolutely love. Or this Sass & Bide piece if you are trying to splurge.

My red moto jacket is from Zara. Found similar one here for half the price and this one at express for that comes in different colors.

Wearing the VENUS Glitter Lace Up Brogues from Topshop!

about StylePantry–
Every Wednesday, I’m going to open my closets to Curly Nikki community and invite you all in. This is my story as a working mother of 3, fashionably chasing my kids around. It’s one thing for us to point at the runways, drool over the lookbooks, and pick off the shelves of our favorite boutiques, but more importantly, we as fashion-minded people need to share our styles more. So please, leave your comments and share your thoughts, and by all means submit your fashion/style questions or “where to shop” for certain pieces to @stylepantry on Twitter or on Facebook. You can also find me on Tumblr!

    What's wrong with maternity clothes hon!? You can find some very stylish outfits if you go to chic maternity stores, boutiques! I once saw a zebra print faux fur skirt paired with a black buttoned-down maternity dress shirt. I'm sorry I'm old school and I'm tired of seeing women walking around looking like their clothes are too small or those prego bellies–a nasty look for my taste. Some of us don't need to see all of that! I was very stylist when I was pregnant with my first child 30 yrs ago (had one-piece jumper, jeans, turtleneck, 2 pc pantsuit, etc.) all of them came from at that time a well-known maternity store called Dan Howard so please don't knock maternity clothes because that's what they're made for–you can show your body off AFTER the baby and some exercise!

    i must say i do like this new weekly feature. I'm a northeast chick, living in Jersey, family roots in Brooklyn and i find that the style on the West Coast is very different. Of course i'm basing this subjective opinion on this new feature but i find it interesting to say the least. Keep filling that closet, i'm looking forward to next weeks post.

    Aw, HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my fellow Scorpios. Muah 🙂

    Thank you all for you kind words.

    @Atribitt, like you, I never wear maternity clothes. I naturally by my clothes a size or two bigger, so during my pregnancies, I wore the stuff in my closet. Third trimester, I was a big fan of Forever 21 or sale racks at my favorite stores. Just go ahead and buy a large/xtra large, so you can still look ultra chic without breaking the bank.

    Hope that helps 🙂 xx

  • ATribitt says:

    I am LOVE LOVE LOVING these posts! You make it looks so EFFORTLESS too.
    Question: Can you recommend some websites to go to for maternity inspiration? i DO NOT want to wear maternity clothes, but rather style my clothes that i already have (and can fit just fine) in a way that flatters my growing belly, all without looking like kirstie alley on look who's talking.
