Maternity Dresses! Maxi Dress Baby Shower Outfit, Wrap Dress For The Office

Here's what I wore on Sunday:
away from blue Third Trimester Pregnancy Maxi Dress Baby Shower Outfit

miu miu studded bag
Necklace: gold heart shaped necklace layered with vintage gold chain
DressMEV Havana maxi dress C/O Zibibo
Belt: Kmart thin gold glitter belt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle, Hermes pink clic clac
BagMiu Miu cammeo studded clutch bag


Had a busy Sunday! After Saturday's trip to Australia Zoo, I had another luxurious pregnancy massage booked in the morning to get rid of all of the anticipated aches and pains from all of the walking around. Then it was a spot of shopping with my sister, the baby shower at my parents, and a BBQ dinner at the in-laws.

The baby shower was really fun. Baby got so many gifts! We had put together a little registry advising people that gifts weren't necessary, and suggesting a few little things if people wanted to buy something. So many people got us things, it was really unexpected and I got a little teary opening presents.

I'd initially been against the idea of a baby shower, but warmed up to it more during the pregnancy. They aren't very common in Australia. It was such a lovely way to spend Mother's Day though, and I'm very thankful to my mum and sister who put so much effort into the party. Spending time with friends, family and with my mother and mother in law celebrating the impending arrival of their grandchild was really special. Hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day too. :)


Last worn: purple maternity maxi dress, gold glitter belt, Havaianas, Miu Miu studded cammeo bag.



Here's what I wore to work today:
third trimester office wear soon maternity workwear printed wrap dress

balenciaga part time bag 2010 black silver hardware
Dress: Soon Maternity 'Madeline' grey print wrap dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with GSH


After a busy weekend, simplicity was needed, so went with this Soon Maternity wrap dress for work again. Made getting ready easy, and was perfect for the many meetings I had.

Shocked to search the blog and find that I haven't carried this bag for 5 months - I need to get better at rotating through my handbags. It's a little tricky now that they are all stored in boxes under the bed though, bending down to get things is not the easiest manoeuvre when pregnant, haha!


Last worn: maternity wrap dress, studded mouse flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag.

    1. I'm hoping I can continue to wear them post-pregnancy as nursing dresses, but we will see how different they look without a bump! :)

  30. Glad to hear you had a nice shower. Your comment about bending down made me laugh - I remember towards the end of my pregnancy and I had attended a formal event where I wore ankle strap heels. Yup my belly was way too big for me to reach the straps, my hubby had to buckle it for me.

    1. Haha that is love! I don't know if hubby would do that for me!
      Envious you could wear heels near the end too - I'm too clumsy and swollen to consider much other than flats, and even then I'm only wearing them as I have to for work :P

  31. Here, baby showers are a must - and they are so much fun, with activities and games. Sometimes they are gender mixed and done in hotels with music, entertainment... i went to one last year that had a stand up comedian !

    1. Wow that sounds incredible! They are definitely not must-haves, or anything very big here.

  32. Lovely you got such a wonderful Mother's day, you are a mother-to-be after all! I just had to comment that your dress with your wraparound gold belt is just an absolute stunner. You look so glowy and fresh and everything about it is so beautiful. Rosemary x
