Maternity Style - 27 Weeks Pregnant
Making the most of a sunny, but brisk day on Sunday, I persuaded my husband to take some outfit photos of me.
The seasons are definitely going crazy at the moment! After two months of near-continuous rain, we were then treated to a couple of weeks of glorious sunshine and temperatures up near the 20°C mark, followed by a sudden drop back to single digits… Thus far I've resisted reverting back to my heavier winter outfits, but unless it gets warmer again, expect my next post to feature both a coat and boots!
My scarf is from Next, it was one of the prizes I won after entering their LFW outfit competition (check out my post here). I’m a true believer that you can never have enough scarves (or handbags for that matter), they’re the perfect accessory to quickly grab and they can really help to make an outfit. This is my current favourite and I've been wearing it with everything from evening dresses to casual outfits with jeans.
I bought the top recently from Mamas & Papas, it gives the illusion of being two separate pieces, when in fact it’s just the one. The striped 'inner top' has buttons that you can undo when your bump gets bigger, which sit on the inside of the 'cardigan' layer. It’s a great maternity top, which I’ll probably continue to wear long after my bump has disappeared. In fact I liked it so much that I bought the same in a light grey colour as well.
These are actually the first pair of maternity jeans I bought - I managed with various pairs of jeggings till it became apparent that I would need to invest in some 'proper' maternity gear. I bought this particular pair at New Look, they actually sit under my bump, but the elastic waist makes them super comfy. If I’m honest, I’m beginning to get more than a little concerned that I might not want to go back to wearing regular clothes post-pregnancy, maternity clothes are just so darn comfortable!
The ballet pumps were a sneaky purchase from TU at Sainsbury's, they have them in a various different shades and I’m sorely tempted to purchase another pair. At £12, you can’t really go too far wrong can you?!
Making the most of our garden to get some photos - you'll note that most of the photos were taken on the decking... largely because our lawn is beginning to resemble a scene from Apocalypse Now!
