Baby Blues


This weekend was my best friend’s gender reveal party. (She’s expecting twins.) I knew what to bring as far as a gift goes (diapers, of course) but what to wear — that’s a tricky one, no? I’m pretty sure in all of the what to wear to where guides out there, a gender reveal party is not a key destination. So I decided you can’t go wrong with a blazer and heels. Also, my guess was a boy and a girl so naturally I wore pink and blue. And my guess was right. This only means one thing: I’m clairvoyant.

If any pregnant person would like me to guess the gender of your baby, just let me know. So far I’m 1-1; those are really good odds.

    I adore that blazer!
    I would hate for you to mess up your perfect baby gender guessing ratio but if you want to take a guess, I'll let you. 😉 just one babe for me, no twins.

  15. A boy and girl twins, that is just so cute. I love that you wore pink and blue. A blazer with heels is definitely a great way to go. You look beautiful.

    I chose not to know on both my pregnancies,but loved hearing the variety of guesses. My fave one was when an older woman said I was very round so it was a boy- she was right- but round? Lovely pattern on the top-

  20. I think that's a perfect baby shower outfit.  Cute without being too "precious" if you know what I mean.
    I don't have a talent for picking baby genders, but I do have a talent for picking up when friends and coworkers are pregnant when they're only a couple weeks along.
