Australia Day: Green and Gold, Funkita Bikini | Asos Red Leopard Print Dress, Miu Miu Clutch

Here's what I wore on Australia Day:
Away From Blue Second trimester Pregnancy Outfit Australia Day green and gold tank and jeans

Alexander Wang Dark argon pebbled leather Rocco Bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
NecklaceHouse of Harlow gold multi-strand necklace
TopJeanswest Jenni basic singlet in Emerald green (new purchase)
Jeans: Jeanswest Maternity slim straight jeans
Shoes: Cotton On thin strap thongs in black
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted gold bangle set
Bag: Alexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon


Green and gold for Australia day of course! Had to use accessories for the theme as I had planned to wear my French Connection silk skirt with this top, like I did on a previous Australia Day, but now the baby bump has grown I have to wear it quite high. Although I could zip it up wearing it above my waist, I worried it would be too short. Luckily my Jeanswest jeans were a good replacement, and I didn't have to worry about the breeze catching the hem of my skirt!

Very sad to have to put the skirt away in the "after baby arrives" box, but it frees up a little more space in my wardrobe. Space for clothes that fit to make it easier to get dressed each day!

If you're curious how the bump is going, I shared the below baby bump pic on instagram. Wearing my new Funkita cossie because it wouldn't be a proper Australia Day without visiting a pool or BBQ ;)
In the end I went for the 'Colour Love Stripes' over the peacock print, and I love it. I ordered a couple of sizes larger than my normal swimwear, so it fits me well for pregnancy. My other bikinis are currently living in the "after baby arrives" box, haha!

Public holiday today, made it a lovely long weekend. Spent some time at home trying to organise my wardrobe and spring clean a little more, so I was just in shorts and a tank. Like a summer version of this 'tidying up' outfit. We are turning the spare room I use as a wardrobe into baby's nursery, so I have a lot more downsizing and cleaning to go. Going from 2 overflowing wardrobes into 1 is not an easy task, so whenever I get the urge to clean or tidy, I get right into it to take advantage of the mood!

DH suggested we take a break for lunch, so I made a bit of an effort and got dressed up in this to go out for lunch and catch a movie. Also had a friend pop by later in the afternoon and give me some advice for work tomorrow, which was lovely :)


Last worn: Ray Bans (above), Asos leopard print dress, Wittner studded sandals, Miu Miu clutch.

Linking up with Mix It Monday, Style Sessions, Trend Spin Linkup today.

  24. Eeeep I didn't spend mine at either this year. I know I am so bad. Everyone else was away for the weekend so I stayed home and watched bad reality TV and ate Spag Bol. So un-Australian of me!

    1. Thank you! :) These ones have an elasticated belly-band built in, and like you said, an elasticated waist you can adjust using some buttons as you need to let out more room, haha. They are so comfortable! :)

  28. Oh no, you have to give up your closet room for the baby! That is going to be hard. Not that having a baby wont be wonderful but a closet room is pretty much the dream, right?

    1. haha, it will be much more special to me being a nursery! :) Plus it's helping me be better at downsizing and being more strict with what we own and what we need to get rid of :)

  29. Oh that Miu Miu bag is glorious Mica and happy Australia day.
    You know, I read a while back that Australia and where I live have very similar plants and nature - and that kangaroos and koalas can easily adapt….
