Here's what I wore on Sunday:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: House of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
Dress: Three Dots stripe maxi dress
Shoes: black slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes pink clic clac
Bag: Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull
Simple maxi dress for the weekend. Although I've worn this bag and dress together before, repeated the combo again on Sunday as I had to cart some paperwork around. The neverfull is a great bag for that!
This dress highlights the bump a little. I'm really glad I don't have to hide it now that I've spilled the beans! :) We wanted to keep the secret to ourselves for a while, and to have the joy of surprising our families on Christmas day. It was a really wonderful Christmas! Telling all of our friends and family was so exciting, and we were so pleased to share our happiness with them. I also thought it best to tell my boss before I posted anything online about it.
Last worn: Rayban, stripe maxi dress, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton damier Neverfull.
Here's what I wore to work today:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Roie Designs pearl and antique gold long necklace
Top: Cotton On 'Carrie' round neck top in black
Skirt: Asos graphic print pencil skirt - maternity version (new purchase, on sale)
Shoes: Novo Carmina fuschia suede flats
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: Balenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet
While I've told my boss and the relevant managers know for planning reasons, I haven't shared the news with everyone else at work yet, for a handful of reasons that I won't go into. As a result, I'm minimising the bump as much as possible in my office wear, despite how pleased and happy I am to see it progress! My latest Asos sale purchases were maternity work wear like today's pencil skirt, to help with appropriate office dressing.
I'm also throwing a waterfall cardi on top while I'm in the office, instead of my usual straight line cardi. I think the drape makes a difference. When I did quietly share the news with one of my friends in the office, she confessed that she had noticed one afternoon and just thought I'd gained a little weight, so hopefully everyone who notices anything is thinking that and I can keep things under wraps for a little longer. ;)
For the immediate future, the blog will be a mix of minimising the bump for the office, and dressing as I please on the weekends. Baby will be mentioned from time to time, as it is at the point where the bump influences what I can wear, but I don't intend to turn this blog into anything other than a daily outfit blog. You can always email me or leave a comment if you want to know anything baby-specific! :)
Last worn: Rayban (see above), black top, pink suede flats, Balenciaga sorbet city. First time I've worn the pencil skirt as it's a new purchase.
