SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
DressVero Moda belted cotton dress
Belt: Louis Vuitton "comete" bandeau scarf worn as a belt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet
BagMulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey


Had quite a busy Saturday! Spent the morning with my family. We had lunch and did some shopping, of course we ended up at a baby store. Baby has so many nice new things now, very spoiled already! So pleased that we are ticking off all of the essentials off the list. In the evening we went over to the in-laws for dinner.

Thought this dress would be nice enough for both events, and the scarf as a belt for a dress has been something I've been wanting to do again for a while after seeing Cecylia's post. When my mum came over I'd been running around trying to tidy a little, so I'd taken the scarf off. When I put it on before we headed out, she said she preferred the dress without the belt. I still belted it anyway, I thought it looked better that way. What do you think? With or without the belt?


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarersbrown cotton dress, Louis Vuitton bandeau as belt, Havaianas, Mulberry Alexa satchel.

More baby shopping today! Went with my mother in law this time, Babies R Us have a big sale on so we stopped by to check it out. Baby ended up with even more goodies! :)

This grey maxi skirt is the other one I bought at Target last weekend. I am really loving maxi skirts even more than I did before pregnancy, I think I've almost doubled the number I own! Thought the plain grey would be nice with the bright top. And my Mulberry Alexa bag yet again, as I've been too lazy to change out bags recently.


Last worn: Jeanswest tank, Havaianas (see above), Mulberry Alexa bag (see above). First time I've worn the skirt as it's a recent purchase.

Linking up with Sunday Style, Mix It Mondays, Manic Monday, Style Sessions today.

  8. Hmm... there isn;t a photo of the dress without the belt for comparison. Is it empire waist with some elastic under the empire? So cute how you said baby is spoiled already. Is baby a girl or a boy or awaiting for the surprise?

    RYC:
    Thanx for dropping by my blog and leaving me a comment. I love seeing newcomers here and I hope we could stay in touch.

    I was in London for about a week. It was a London and Paris then back to London to catch a return flight so it adds up to almost a week and I still haven't visited so many places. It is definitely a city I would love to visit over and over again.

    1. I can't even find a photo of the dress without a belt for you as I've always worn it belted - maybe next time I do need to try it without a belt! It's just a plain cotton dress, the empire effect is due to the baby bump :)

      Will be a surprise in June!

  10. Hello Mica,

    Thank you for the wishes. You look radiant and it seems like the pregnancy has put a smile on your face. Can't wait to find more about your little baby :)

    Sometimes I feel like you are in the US because you are visiting and shopping from the same stores.

    xoxo, Teodora

    1. Hehe I'm sure your baby is being spoiled already too! :D

      As long as the bump doesn't stretch everything out too much, I should be able to wear everything here after pregnancy too! :)

  25. You look so pregnant chic! Everything looks plain sailing and happy but I bet pregnancy has its downs. This look is so effortless. I think you are very much entitled to excessive shopping for a person that has not entered the world yet, very much like I am entitled to buy something for mr dog every time we go out. Thank you for visiting me by the way! Rosemary

  31. the colour combo of the second outfit is so interesting! really brings out the colour of the mulberry - it's such a beautiful share of dark plum grey. i'm inspired to go through the depths of my closet now, i swear i have something in that colour somewhere!
