The lovely Olivia from Pink Blush Maternity contacted me a while ago to congratulate me on the baby news, and offer me the chance to try out one of their maternity pieces. I picked this lovely burgundy dress, as it's a maternity and nursing dress so I'm sure to get a lot of wear out of it. It arrived in just a week, really fast shipping from the US to Australia!
It's super soft and stretchy but not clingy so I know I'll be able to wear it lots as the baby bump grows. It certainly has enough room to allow for the growing bump. I like the adjustable tie, and it's really comfortable. With it being a nursing dress as well, I wasn't too sure if it was too low cut for the office so I wore a singlet underneath just to be on the safe side.
Asked my darling friend K for her honest opinion on the dress and she thinks it's beautiful, so definitely a winner! Looking forward to wearing it more over the next few months - my first maternity dress :) Getting a little maternity wardrobe going - 1 dress, 1 top, 2 pencil skirts, 3 pairs of jeans. Been getting some tips from friends about how to make use of my existing wardrobe too which is very helpful.
Last worn: Ray Bans, brown flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag. First time I've worn the dress as it's a new arrival.
Here's what I wore to work today:
custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Tee: Oscar's Law 'Break the puppy trade' tee (new purchase)
Jeans: Jeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes twilly Kelly en Calèche tied as bracelet
Bag: Balenciaga Coquelicot Velo
If you've followed me for a while (or if you've looked in my sidebar) you'll know I strongly support Oscar's Law. They recently released a new fundraising tee so I had so snap it up right away! It reads: 'help break the puppy trade and don't buy the lie'. Oscar's Law is about ending the cruel puppy farm cycle by educating people, trying to get changes in the law to better protect puppy farm animals and stop stores from selling puppies.
We adopted Cooper, we support our local shelter and every chance I get I let people know how great rescue dogs are. Even resorting to using my baby belly as a mini billboard by wearing tees like this, haha! Added my Balenciaga velo for a bit of red today for Chinese New Year. Gong xi fa cai!
