Weekend Outfits: Jeanswest Dresses, Rebecca Minkoff Yellow Swing Bag. Non-Maternity Wear

Sharing what I wore on the weekend!

Here's what I wore on Saturday:
Third trimester belted Jeanswest Melanie paisley print dress bright yellow bag

Rebecca Minkoff canary yellow swing bag and bracelet stack
NecklaceHouse of Harlow Dynamic necklace in gold
DressJeanswest 'Melanie' paisley mixed print dress (currently 40% off!)
Belt: Kmart thin gold glitter belt
Shoes: Cotton On thin strap thongs in black
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff Swing bag in canary yellow


This outfit was one I had in mind for our anniversary dinner on Friday. Unfortunately, the thongs (flip flops) kind of make the whole look a little too casual for eating out at a restaurant, and were against the dress code of the place we booked. My swollen pregnancy feet won't let me wear anything else though, haha!

I really wanted to wear this pretty dress, so wore it on Saturday instead. We had a quiet day, and had dinner with the in-laws in the evening. My sister in law just got back from an amazing trip, so we had the chance to catch up and see some photos.


Last worn: Jeanswest paisley print dress, gold glitter belt, Cotton On thongs, Rebecca Minkoff Swing bag.



Here's what I wore today:
39 weeks pregnant jeanswest grey tie dye maxi dress and bright yellow RM bag

Balenciaga pearly grey wrap bracelet stack RM bright yellow swing bag
Necklace: statement disc necklace
DressJeanswest 'Elodie' tie dye grey jersey maxi dress
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
BagRebecca Minkoff Swing bag in canary yellow


Simple maxi dress today, for lunch and a movie with DH. We are wondering how many more quiet weekends to ourselves we will get before baby arrives. Hopefully not too many more, we are so excited to meet the little one :) The checkout guy at Woolies was full of questions for us when we did the groceries, wondering when baby is due to arrive. We've seen him a few times during the pregnancy, he's always so sweet and asks how things are going.

Was nice to just wear a dress today - although when we were walking Cooper in the evening I did find myself wishing I'd worn a jacket. First day of winter today so it will definitely start cooling off now, will soon have to start wearing more layers.


Last worn: Jeanswest grey maxi dress, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff swing bag (see above).

Linking up with Monday Must-Haves, #FunDayMonday, Mix It Monday, Manic Monday today.

  2. It is about time for him to get here...how exciting! I love both dresses...the first one is really pretty. And it's great how most of the things you've worn during your pregnancy can work when the bump is gone too.

    1. Yep, not long until baby makes his or her arrival! :) I've been trying to stick to non-maternity pieces as much as possible as my wardrobe space is limited! :)

  3. You look so lovely in both pictures but I'm absolutely in love with the maxi. You look so elegant and bump looks happy. The bag definitely gives it that pop of colour. You say you can't wear anything due to swollen feet but your legs haven't bulked up at all! Unless you were super super supermodel-like slimmy pre-pregnancy. Hope you've had a relaxing weekend and are ready to kick off another week with baby. Rosemary X

  9. I love that tie-dyed maxi dress. Well you look lovely, I'm sure your feet felt better ... that's why I use cushion flats, sometimes you just need a break from wedges, heels, etc. :-)

  19. Those Jeanswest Dresses are nice especially the Paisley one. I also adore the yellow bag. =) Too bad about the restaurant giving you attitude. I didn't experience bigger feet while pregnant, thankfully.

    Always love when you stop by. Thanks for your latest nice comment and enjoy this new week and month. <3 Ada.

    1. Oh, they didn't have a problem with it, I wore the maxi dress (previous post) to dinner so I could sneak my footwear in under the radar, haha.

  20. Happy anniversary! Such a shame they didn't understand the situation in that restaurant - I think dress code or not, they could have been a bit more... human. Both looks are wonderful and I really like the print of the maxi dress. x

    1. I'm not sure what they would have done if I'd turned up in the dress above, so I wore a maxi dress (previous post) to hide my footwear choices haha!

  24. Love the maxi outfit and your yello RM bag!! Stunning. I have heard from so many of my friends about their feet growing during pregnancy and never reverting back and that scares the living hell outta me, given my shoe collection :(

    1. Oh I wore a maxi dress to dinner (previous post) so they let me in....as they couldn't see my feet haha. Didn't want to risk it by having the thongs out there in the open, so the maxi dress was a better choice.

  44. Sorry I'm so late getting to read this! :( Dang I'm so behind on life right now!!
    I really love that maxi on you! And I LOL'd at your pregnancy feet because after my walk last weekend, I've only been able to wear thong sandals bc I couldn't get my feet in anything else - not even WELLIES!! I kept telling my husband that this *has* to be how pregnant women feel when their feet swell! So, I sympathize with you! You are looking as great as ever though!! Carylee | morepiecesofme.com
