Sunday Slay...

Why does the weekend always seem to zoom by?

I'm officially 30 weeks and 2 days. Yay me. Lol

Well here we are an it is just a lovely sunday here in rhe Chi. The sun is still shinning it was in the upper 40s. I did not need a heavy jacket. I've worn these pieces before but not at the same time.

I wish I had these harem pants in mltiple colors. The flow and the movement are just lovely. The black top is a sweater knit cold shoulder it has served me well. The earings are leather and hand made. They have become my favorite. I'm trying to get all the wear I can from them now before little nugget arrives.

The jacket is made from an African material fabric called Bogolanfini. It is a mud cloth fabric. It's the first sunday in Black history month in America so I thought this shrug would be appropriate and I wore it to church.

My new reality is that I'm currently a size 12 so this is a pair of slip ons that I recently purchased to accommodate my changing foot size.

Time for a bit of American History:

Carter G. Woodson started Black History week in the 1920's to celebrate and recognize the contributions made by African Americans because history books were and sometimes are not very inclusive in the history or lexicon of America.

    Ledonna, you are looking so chic I can hardly stand it. Your maternity style is just amazing. What an inspiration. I love your new sneakers--perfect with this outfit.

    Sensational! Slaying is it. One of your best, among all your fabulous looks. Love your Bogolanfini shrug, perfect with the pants. I can see why you bought a few pairs! Emergency sneaks are a winner too.

    Thanks for the link to the African fabric shop. I've sewn a couple of things with Vlisco Dutch wax print. It's kind of controversial, since it's made in Holland and fashionable in Africa. Some people think this is all wrong, others are OK with it. Either way, it has a very interesting history. I personally think it's very beautiful, and lovely quality.

    If I'd seen your style before or when I was pregnant I think I would have had a lot more fun. :)
    Love seeing your style, and how happy you are.

    Ledonna you look so happy! Love the jacket especially and also the new sneakers which look comfy and smart. You remind me of a song I used to know( from 1972!) Hey, Hey, Hey beautiful Sunday, this is my, my ,my beautiful day...

    Lovely outfit, Ledonna, and I can see why the individual pieces work so well for you. The neckline of the cold shoulder knit is very alluring. It's a great top for you. But I have to say that my favorite piece is the mud cloth shrug. Love that. Thanks for the link.

    I always have fun with the person behind the camera that makes it fun to  take pictures. 

    The shrug I bought for a song at a flea market for like $5 Winning

    Thank you all so much

    I never really think about the origins of history months and recognitions - thanks for sharing :)   If you have any favorite links relating to fashion and the performing arts for Black History Month, I would love to see them!

    I love the jacket!

    Did you see Inge's recent Link Love? There'a an article about brands that make larger shoe sizes.

    This looks like the NEW Ledonna who has found her style groove after a shift. Rock on, Sister.
