Simple black and white outfit for Wednesday. Really starting to struggle with finding nice things to wear to work now in the final few weeks of pregnancy. I'm quite looking forward to finishing up soon, and being a lot more casual with what I wear. Based on some previous pregnancies in the office, I know the levels of dress code I can drop to, but I want to try and look as professional as possible despite my limited choices. This was comfortable all day though, and was good to wear to our parenting class after work as well.

Thought that the little bit of print mixing with the leopard scarf and tartan skirt worked well due to the similar colours - what do you think?

Here's what I wore to work and out for dinner today:
Jeanswest Mixed Print Paisley Dress Asos Aggie Ankle Boots MbMJ Fran Third Trimester workwear

NecklaceHouse of Harlow 5 station necklace in black and silver
Dress: Jeanswest 'Melanie' paisley mixed print dress (new purchase)
Belt: came with dress
ShoesAsos Aggie leather western ankle boots in black
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes pink clic clac and purple Salvatore Ferragamo 'Vara' leather bow bracelet
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown


More print mixing, and I got to wear my maternity tights! I purchased these tights a couple of months ago when we had a little bit of a cold snap, figuring they would be essentials for the pregnancy. Just wearing them now at 36 weeks, so not as essential as I thought! They were only $8 from Target so I'm not feeling too bad about the purchase.

Picked a pretty dress to wear to work and after today, as we had a birthday dinner for my sister in the evening. The tights kept me warm and the dress was suitable for work and dinner, which saved me trying to find a second outfit to wear for the evening, hehe! I bought this dress in the Jeanswest sale as I loved the paisley print and the subtle print mixing, and guessed it would have no problems accommodating the third trimester baby bump despite being non-maternity.


I've been wearing my Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag a bit this week, but that will change now I have a new handbag purchase! Short reveal video of my latest splurge:
Yep, another Marc by Marc Jacobs bag!


Last worn: Asos ankle boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran (see above). First time I've worn the dress as it's a new purchase.

  27. Oh my gosh I am having massive bag envy right now. I love that brown Marc Jacobs, definitely my favourite of all your ones so far. But Mica, aren't you a sneaky one! I was so surprised when I read your comment on my YouTube post and saw you have your own channel; I was going to have a massive rant and rave and ask why you hadn't shared this sooner and to give me the name of your channel immediately, but it's like you read my mind and posted a video to show me. I would love to start a channel, but a bit like you, I shy away from the camera. Maybe I should carry a similar channel to yours from behind the lens. Ooh also, I was expecting a super heavy Aussie accent for some reason, but it isn't at all. Just something I noticed haha. Rosemary x

      I definitely prefer being behind the camera lens, but maybe one day I'll hop in front. Who knows! :)
