If you don’t know my friend Natalie Weakly, you should. She’s an image and brand consultant and she loves making people look good. Natalie is often a featured guest on Great Day Houston, giving Houstonians tips on all kinds of fashion solutions. (You may remember her recent segment on scarf styling I featured on the blog.) Natalie is also pregnant (and due just 10 days before me – how fun is that?!) so it makes sense that they asked her to do a segment on maternity fashion. And when she needed “models” I was thrilled to do it. It wasn’t my first debut on a television news segment, but it was just as fun as the first time!
First, Natalie and I went to Pickles and Ice Cream. Isn’t that an adorable name for a maternity store? I love the store and the women who work there are both darling and really helpful. They’ve got a great selection of jeans and maternity wear options that are classic in style. I’ve found several fun things there during this pregnancy. Natalie and I tried on several outfits and she selected a blue and yellow print dress with an empire waist by Olian for me. I don’t normally wear prints – especially when pregnant – but since she’s the stylist, I went with it, and I have to say, as far as prints go, it was pretty cute. The colors and pattern were lovely. For the show, I paired it with our London Blue Topaz large bar necklace, which was the perfect shade of slate blue and our Principessa white coin pearl bracelet, which always adds a touch of elegance to any outfit.
Here are a few behind the scenes photos from my morning on TV. And be sure to scroll down for some stills from the segment and a link to the full video!
