With twins on the way in September and a summer party in her honor, what's this expectant mom to wear? For Kristen Nix, who is expecting bouncing baby boys, fashion and comfort are top priorities.

For the River Oaks Country Club baby shower that she shared with sister Lauren Snyder (she's expecting a girl in October), Kristen opted for a crinkle cotton sleeveless summer frock — a gift from her mom, Sheridan Williams. She picked up the casual dress at one of the enticing boutiques in Positano, Italy, during a summer yachting adventure.

Kristen accented the dress with a belt from J. Crew, worn just under the bustline, and Michael Kors wedgies.

What better look for a holiday cocktail fundraiser than this sophisticated Donna Karan knit? Kristen Nix borrowed it from her mom's closet for the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center's Santa's Elves event, where not quite dressy cocktail but something more than business attire was called for. This Style File winner had been coveting the dress from the moment her mother, Sheridan Williams, first purchased it in the Madison Avenue Store in New York last June. However, at the time, Nix was eight months pregnant. "So once I lost the pregnancy pounds," she said, "it was on the top of my list." (Baby Ryan is now 4 months old.)

Nix's open-toe Christian Louboutin pumps are from Neiman Marcus. The handbag is by Nancy Gonzales and was purchased at Bergdorf Goodman on that June shopping trip. "A plus," she said, "because I could 'fit' into it right away despite being very pregnant."

The gold cuff is by Tory Burch and the earrings are Megan Odabash from Sloan/Hall.
