Wednesday was a long day, so wore this dress again to be comfortable. After work, DH and I had our first antenatal class at the hospital. It was really good, answered a lot of questions for us and we got a bit of a tour. So exciting how close we are getting to baby's arrival! I thought about getting changed for the class, but figured the dress would be fine. There were a few people who had come directly from work like ourselves too. I've never been around so many pregnant ladies in one place before, was interesting seeing how everyone dressed for their bumps.

Pink Balenciaga city bag again today! Although it's not Friday, this post will be live on my blog on Friday, so had to have a little bit of pink in support of Renae :) Pink accessories seemed like a good choice, and it means I didn't have to change my bag.

Just a simple pencil skirt and tee outfit again. I really wish I'd bought more colours or even a backup of this tee when it was still made - it really is the perfect tee! It's even able to handle the second trimester and third trimester baby bumps and still look good!


Don't forget I'm selling some items on ebay as part of my wardrobe clear out. A mix of clothes (regular and maternity), accessories and even handbags too. Everything ships internationally :)

Black, White and Grey With Bright Balenciaga Bags - Maxi Dress, Tee and Pencil Skirt

Here's what I wore for Easter Monday:
Third Trimester 34 week pregnant easy black white maxi dress bright yellow clutch

SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers

DressPearl black and white jersey maxi dress
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted gold bangle set
BagBalenciaga envelope clutch in 2012 mangue with giant 12 RGGH


We had a birthday/Easter lunch at the in-laws on Monday. A maxi dress seemed like a nice choice, especially with the heat! Thought that the bright clutch was a nice addition to balance out the black and white of the dress.
I have some more colourful maxi dresses that I could have worn, but not all of my non-maternity maxi dresses fit in the third trimester. Part of the reason why I bought another one on Saturday ;)


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, printed maxi dress, Havaianas, Balenciaga envelope clutch.

Back to work today! A short 3 day working week due to the public holidays. A lot of people took the 3 days off to make a long Easter break, but hubby and I are saving our leave for baby's arrival. Just a simple pencil skirt and tee combination to be comfortable. Very similar combination to the last time I wore this tee! I've said it before, but the relaxed 'business casual' environment at work has made it easy for pregnancy dressing. It's good I can still wear tees and pencil skirts, even if the tees are being stretched to the limits at the moment!

I took the time last week to list some items on ebay in an attempt to make more space at home after my wardrobe clearout - checkout my auctions. Selling a mix of clothes and even handbags too. Everything ships internationally :)

BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete


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!


Last worn: Ray Bansbrown floral tank, grey maxi skirt, Havaianas, Balenciaga tempete day bag.



Here's what I wore on Sunday:
third trimester pregnancy easter sunday church outfit blue crochet lace detail maxi dress

NecklaceHouse of Harlow Dynamic necklace in gold
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chanetelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress (new purchase)
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 :)


Last worn: Balenciaga studded sandals, Miu Miu studded clutch.
