Annie Weston is a saint. Even when pregnant she is the most understanding of friends and the most forgiving person I’ve ever known. No matter how much disappointment she is forced to put up with. And even when pregnant she has an elegance and effortless beauty that is unparalleled. Since the baby shower we threw for her was early enough she could still avoid the maternity clothes and opt for this loose and flowing, black and floral, silky shift dress. The short, leg showcasing skirt is so distracting you’d never notice she was pregnant. Plus the sharp contrast between colorful flowers and plain black in the center creates the impression of a waistline where there is none. A day-to-night look that is complimented by her neutral heels, simple black wallet clutch, and this decorative yet streamlined necklace with a tightly packed row of mint colored stones. No matter what Annie has a grace and poise that I truly envy and admire, and will spend my whole life trying to achieve. No matter how often I fail to live up to it.
