On Saturday, DH and I went shopping at DFO to try and find some new shoes and to buy some gifts. Third trimester swelling is making it really difficult for me to wear work-appropriate shoes. I keep kicking my shoes off under my desk every chance I get. One time I did that I couldn't fit my feet back into my shoes, so not the best plan! I was hoping to find something affordable, comfortable, accommodating to my swollen feet and easy to slip on and off. No luck shoe shopping, but we did get the gifts we had set out to buy, and of course I picked up something at Jeanswest too!

ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
Bracelets: the usual plus pink and gold bracelet stack on other arm
BagMiu Miu cammeo studded clutch bag


This gorgeous dress is what I bought at Jeanswest on Saturday. I thought it would be perfect to wear to church today for Easter Sunday. Even wore my hair up (in a messy bun) to show off the back.

Although I regularly work at and attend Church Online, every now and then (usually special occasions) we like to go to back to my parent's church for a service. It was great catching up with everyone, lots of interest in the growing belly so I was glad I'd worn something comfortable with all of the attention directed my way.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter, however you celebrated :)

Lilac Tank, Stripe Maxi Skirt, MbMJ Hillier Hobo | Maternity Shorts, Grey Tee, RM Mini MAC

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:

ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs print scarf in croc-print
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette

Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes pink clic clac
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Hillier Hobo in blush pink with silver hardware


We had some Easter celebrations at work on Thursday, before the public holiday on Friday. That meant casual dress, so I had the chance to wear something super comfortable to the office. Despite being a little worried initially, I saw someone else in the office later in shorts, so I wasn't the most casually dressed person there. Usually when our area has dress down days when others might not I put a bit of effort in to not look too casual, but Thursday I just wanted to be comfortable!

We were encouraged to wear something to match with the Easter theme of the day so pastel singlet and bag seemed like a good choice, with the addition of a scarf for warmth in the morning. One guy dressed up in an Easter bunny onesie, and a few people wore bunny ears! Spent a bit of the day getting messy with egg decorating and taking part in the competitions too. It was a fun and relaxing end to the day before the long weekend.

Good Friday, and the first day of our long weekend! Another casual outfit as we didn't get up to very much, spent some more time preparing the house and nursery for baby's arrival. I did a lot of relaxing and lazing around too, haha! I'm being mindful of enjoying the time off and not pushing myself too much. Shorts and a tee was comfortable and perfect. These maternity shorts have been worn a lot more than I thought they would. The maternity tights I just 'had' to buy are still sitting unopened!

Wore this tee over my others as it has the fun pink panel on the back - supporting Renae from Simple Sequins with her Pink Friday as she faces cancer treatment.

Nice casual comfortable outfit to work from home and attend a doctor's appointment on Tuesday. This stripe tank is one of the bargains I picked up in the last 40% off Jeanswest sale. They have another sale on at the moment too...and I bought more things... I can't resist the sales, I should subscribe from the emails! The scarf was a good addition for a bit of print mixing and to keep me warm as it was a little chilly in the morning.

Are you sick of this dress yet? haha! I'm not! I'm planning to wear it every week for the rest of my pregnancy, it's just such a good maternity work wear option. Had a big meeting this afternoon so I felt appropriately dressed.

Added some colour with the shoes, bag and scarf as I don't tend to wear a lot of colour with this dress and wanted to change that. The scarf is a new purchase from Reebonz a while back to use up some more of my credits, bought in anticipation of the weather cooling down! I can't even resist sales when the items are for another season!

And yet more sale talk.... the ShopBop friends and family sale is on now! 25% off everything - including sale items! - with code 'INTHEFAMILY14'



Last worn: Soon Maternity wrap dress, cap toe flats, Balenciaga sapphire city (see above). First time I've worn the scarf as it's a recent purchase.
