Balenciaga Coquelicot Velo, Fashion Item Friday Linkup

I'm co-Hosting the Fashion Item Friday link-up today, so scroll down and link up your latest fashion-related post :)

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:
away from blue third trimester soon maternity flora fold pencil skirt stripe tee

balenciaga coquelicot poppy red velo worn with navy stripe tee
Necklace: Cotton On Jewel drop necklace in black and silver
Top: Atmos&Here stripe tee (new purchase)
SkirtSoon Maternity Flora fold pencil skirt
ShoesWittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga Coquelicot Velo


Thursday was supposed to be a nice quiet day at work without any meetings, so I dressed comfortably. Of course the day didn't turn out anything like I planned and I ended up with a few meetings and some very urgent tasks to work on, haha. Always the way!

This tee is another new purchase. I've bought more non-maternity clothes than maternity clothes this pregnancy I think! I know these oversize tees will fit me post-pregnancy as I am ordering my usual size, and they are not as overwhelmingly long on my petite frame as most maternity tops are.

The Iconic keeps having sales and extra coupon codes that just tempt me too much ;) They currently have a 50% off sale at the moment, and I've again got a cart full of wishlist items....


Last worn: Soon Maternity pencil skirt, Wittner black flats, Balenciaga coquelicot Velo. First time I've worn the tee as it's a new purchase.




Here's what I wore for casual Friday today:
Casual Friday maternity wear for third trimester 31 weeks skinny jeans

Balenciaga Coquelicot red velo worn crossbody with jeans
Tank: Emerson crochet lace bib print top
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga Coquelicot Velo

Lots of red and some maternity denim for an easy casual Friday :) Should really try change it up a little with this top - I paired it with my Velo bag last time I wore it too!

Last worncrochet lace topmaternity skinny jeans, studded mouse flats, Balenciaga Velo bag (see above).

  8. Wow, you still fit into jeans? That is crazy. And skinnies, too - is that even possible? It's so lovely that you dress yourself up and put together nice outfits because I know that can be a chore in the middle of a pregnancy, even if you are the world's greatest fashionista. Rosemary x

    1. haha maternity jeans are the best inventions! :D My preferences and likes/dislikes for baby bump dressing change frequently, so I'm having fun trying out different things in my wardrobe - even if they aren't all winners! As I'll only have the bump a short time :)

As we can't see the front of them in that picture very well, I am imagining they have little ears and whiskers!!! The top in your casual Friday look is beautiful too!x

  13. I don't think you have to change it up with that top at all! It's darling! And I love tees with a lot of stretch you can wear as maternity and afterwards! Sometimes maternity wear is just way too big!
