Zara Belted Tunic Dress, Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC | Grey Top, Skinny Jeans, Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Here's what I wore on Sunday:
Zara printed bib front tunic dress worn belted over second trimester baby bump

Rebecca Minkoff coated canvas berry stripe mini MAC
NecklaceDogeared 3 Wishes stardust bead necklace
Dress: Zara printed bib front tunic dress
Belt: C/O Poppywinkle brown weave belt
Shoes: Wittner 'Columbia' cross strap sandals in tan
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe


The last time I wore this dress I'd picked it out as it was lightweight and it hid the baby bump nicely in photos. Although in person it was impossible to hide when I moved :) Now, the bump definitely isn't hidden in photos any more! So amazing being able to see the pregnancy progress through my blog. Really blessed!

Wore the dress again today as it was a lightweight and easy option for the heat. Although the combination of the belt and the baby bump made it a little shorter than I liked when the breeze picked up. Hopefully I can wear it again in pregnancy, just maybe when it's cooler with leggings underneath.


Last worn: printed dress, weave belt, Wittner sandals, Rebecca Minkoff canvas mini MAC.



Here's what I wore for a training course today:
Second trimester baby belly in empire waist grey french connection top skinny jeans

Away From Blue Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull tote
NecklaceDogeared silver wishbone necklace layered with
TopFrench Connection grey tie detail top (with Supre black singlet underneath)
JeansJeanswest maternity skinny jeans in black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs labradorite bracelets
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Today I had another training course outside of the office. I much prefer wearing jeans to training days, as you never know how cold the rooms will be, from experience it's mostly too cold for bare legs! As there was no provided dress code, I went with my black skinny jeans as they can easily pass for pants and blend in if everyone is in business wear ;) Carried my neverfull bag as I had to carry snacks and training material around.


Last worn: French Connection top, maternity skinny jeans, studded mouse flatsLouis Vuitton neverfull.

  10. I love the pattern on the first dress!

    I watched your youtube video yesterday with the dressing room tour. DOOM I am so sad that you have to give that up for the baby! Where on earth will you fit all that stuff? I'd be tempted move house just so I could still have the room, ha.

    1. It will be fantastic to have a nursery instead of all of those clothes and things though! I'm looking forward to it :)
      Everything has moved into the master bedroom or half of the wardrobe in the study. So mostly things are in boxes now, haha!
