Ask BB: What to Wear to a Baby Shower

I am attending my first baby shower for a college roommate. The shower is a lunch at a local restaurant in NJ. With the fluctuating weather and changing of seasons I am stumped as what to wear. Can you suggest any great outfits for this?

I'm going to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, and say wear a cute dress and shop Kmart! Yes, Kmart of all places is actually stepping up their game with some—dare I say—fashionable clothing, shoes and accessories.

I never would have suggested Kmart if it weren't for other fashion bloggers like Cheap Chica and Fab Finds Under $50, as well as one of my readers, Dina. Seems like everyone is clamoring about Kmart's new look, so I finally checked it out for myself online (granted, I haven't seen these in person) and I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.

Here are three baby shower outfits you can put together with items from for just $130. Total. For ALL three outfits!

Oh, and to address the changing temps, simply wear a camisole under your dress, top with a cardigan, and add opaque tights depending on the weather on the day of the shower. A classic beige trench will give you added protection from the elements if it's extra chilly or rainy.

Deal Alert: Kmart also has a deal going on right now where you can save $10 off any $50 women's clothing purchase. Enter code KSPRINGFASHION4 at checkout, or click here to download your in-store coupon.

I love the purple dress so much. It looks a nice dress I could wear with some gold heels, and light gold bangles.
