Spent a lot of time on Thursday evening trying to plan my Friday outfit. We had a team event on Friday afternoon and had the option to dress up, but I decided to just wear normal bump-disguising clothes instead. It took a long time to find something!

My new Jeanswest maternity jeans arrived and are perfect in every way, so wore them and this printed cami as the flowing style hides the baby bump quite well I thought. Well, hides it better than any of my other tops could, haha. I tried on most of them!


Last worn: blue sunnies, polka dot cami, MbMJ mouse flats, Balenciaga tempete day bag. First time I've worn the jeans as they are a new purchase.

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus beaded neon and gold and black and gold bracelet set and Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle on other arm
BagBalenciaga purple RH city in 2008 sapphire


We were supposed to have a BBQ today, but sadly had to postpone it because the rain for the past few days had drenched the back yard. There was a lot more rain today too. Ended up spending more time with my mum and sister, we took the chance to go shopping before our afternoon movie.

Wanted something nice and comfortable suitable for trying on clothes, and my new singlet works well with the black maxi skirt. I picked up a few singlets in the Jeanswest sale along with the maternity jeans :)


Last worn: RayBanblack maxi skirt, Havaianas, Balenciaga sapphire city bag. First time I've worn the top as it's a recent purchase.

Linking up with Fashion Item Friday, Street Style Sunday, Monday Must-Haves today.

  4. Oh, so bad about the barbecue! I love barbecues, they're one of the things I miss about summer right now. Your bump seems to be growing really fast too, but I think this top did a good job hiding it :) Hopefully you can keep coming up with solutions! xo
