Here's what I wore on Wednesday:

Necklace: gift from DH
DressFrench Connection star dancing jersey dress in red rust/almond
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe


On Wednesday I worked from home. I wore a simple dress to keep cool, although I did end up needing the air conditioning quite early on in the morning! It was easily the hottest day of the week! Managed to take Cooper a walk before the big storm came by, although it didn't tire him out a lot and he was still a bit scared by the loud thunder.


Last worn: Ray Ban Wayfarers, star print dress, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.



Here's what I wore to work today:

SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
NecklaceHouse of Harlow Dynamic necklace in gold
TopFrench Connection black paisley printed empire top (with turquoise Cotton On singlet underneath)
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagChloe Marcie medium hobo bag in Nut


I am beginning to conclude that empire waist tops are not helping me hide the baby bump, haha. My friend sent me a message at work asking if anyone had approached me as the bump looked particularly large today! Don't think I'll be hiding baby for much longer from my colleagues.

This top is another wardrobe find, from the small pile of clothes I spoke about on Monday. It used to be one of my favourite tops. Had a look and there are a couple of photos of me wearing it in 2009 so I'm guessing I got it around then, 5 years ago! It's going to be great over the coming months as it's very comfy.


Last worn: French Connection top, Asos grey pencil skirt, metallic gold mouse flats, Chloe Marcie hobo bag.
