Chloe Marcie Hobo Bag, Third Trimester Dresses for Pregnancy: Soon Maternity and Pink Blush Maternity

Here's what I wore to work on Tuesday:
Soon Maternity Madeline Print Wrap Dress worn in 3rd trimester professional office wear

chloe marcie hobo bag
Necklace: sterling silver monogram necklace C/O MyNameNecklace.com.au
Dress: Soon Maternity 'Madeline' grey print wrap dress
ShoesWittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge black and white bangle
BagChloe Marcie medium hobo bag in Nut


Had a big meeting Tuesday, so simple yet professional in a wrap dress. This dress is another ebay maternity wear purchase. I actually won the auction a while ago, but forgot to pay the seller right away and then the seller took a while to ship it. Unlike my last purchase, the dress was the stated size and in the stated condition, so I'm really happy with it! Again, such a bargain compared to the retail price. Feel like I'll get a lot of use out of this in my last few months of pregnancy too.

Hopefully I don't need to expand my collection of maternity clothes any further - getting difficult to see the value in maternity-specific things when I'm in the third trimester! The bump is growing though and I'm surprised how quickly I've outgrown things I was sure I'd get more wear out of. Dressing in pregnancy is always a learning experience!


Last worn: black flats, Chloe Marcie Hobo bag. First time I've worn the dress as it's a recent purchase.



Here's what I wore to work today:
Pink Blush Maternity button sash maternity dress in burgundy with brown bag tan shoes

Chloe Marcie medium hobo bag in nut brown worn on shoulder
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Dressburgundy button sash maternity dress C/O Pink Blush Maternity
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
Bracelets: the usual plus beaded neon and gold and black and gold bracelet set
BagChloe Marcie hobo bag in Nut


Sticking with the easy option - another maternity dress today! I liked how simple yesterday's outfit was, so went for a dress again. A little sad that these flats are starting to pinch a bit though - they are usually such comfortable shoes! Even had to put a band aid on one of my heels today. I'm blaming the heat and maybe a little bit of pregnancy swelling, haha.


Last worn: Pink Blush Maternity dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs flats, Chloe Marcie bag (see above).

    1. Thanks! It's just a wrap dress from soon maternity - my DVF dresses are mostly relegated to winter wear as they are wool based.

  9. I totally agree with you. I hated buying more clothes in the 3rd trimester because I only had a couple months to wear them! These are both really cute dresses. I'll have to check out ebay for next time.

    1. Yes I'm glad I could find some nice pieces on ebay! But yes, definitely not going to buy any more clothes this late on, unless they double as nursing items too! :)

  10. Wrap dress is the best and probably one of the most comfy ways to dress during this time. Fortunately there are a lot of options out there and being very forgiving in the waist I am sure you can continue to wear most if not all of them after the baby :)

    Ps no one was harm during the hail including my bag haha :)

    1. Hehe, yeah Bal bags are hardier than people think, they can take a bit of weather! Glad you and bag were okay! :)

      Yep, I'm looking forward to continuing to wear as much as possible after baby! :)

  12. These dresses are very sophisticated, I love the color on the second one. and the first one has gorgeous print.The best thing about wrap dresses is you can wear them even after pregnancy since they adjust to size. I had a blue one that I wore through both my pregnancies and still wear on and off till today. You are glowing love :)

    1. Oh no! I'm hoping the swelling was just temporary, I seem to be okay in my other shoes. Hoping it's more the heat than anything!

  24. Both dresses look so good on you Mica! I really love that first one! Oh no about the shoes! Can you get a shoe stretcher (i don't know the fancy name for them). That may help. You definitely don't want blisters...OUCH! When are you due? Are you having a boy or girl? I want to send you something.

    1. I'm hoping my feet go back to their normal size and those shoes fit again, haha! Haven't had any problems since, so maybe just that it was a hot day? Will be keeping an eye on the shoe situation! :D

      I'm due 3rd June, everyone will find out then if it's a boy or girl, so exciting! You don't have to send me anything! <3

  25. Great satchel, purse Mica! I love how it looks in each ensemble. Thanks for the fun compliment on my yellow clutch. I sincerely wanted to have it be in a '3-D dressed' shoot but, time is so tight lately. Perhaps after the surgery next week I can get more organized. Thanks for your loving support! ♥

    1. Oh real life is much more important than finding time for photos! Hopefully you're able to relax and recover after your surgery, then worry about blog photos later!
