Maternity in the Capitol

This week Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers announced that she is expecting her second child in December. She did not mention during this floor speech last week commemorating the 20th anniversary of the ADA:

When I saw the pregnancy announcement, I immediately thought that it may be challenging for her to figure out what to wear, for two reasons:
  1. Her only role model for maternity-wear in Congress is....herself, from her last pregnancy two years ago.
  2. She's a pretty stylish lady, as we've seen on this blog, so I suspect she won't be easily satisfied with a Bella Band and some big sweaters.

What to wear? Neutral colors are a good bet, especially for fall. They allow the clothes to be worn over and over in a short period of time without looking strange. Black isn't great on her, so I would recommend medium grays and navy blues. Interesting jewelry keeps the outfits from looking boring:
