Boxing Day Sales! Jeanswest Maternity Skinny Jeans in the Second Trimester

Hope you had a lovely Christmas! Back to posting as usual, and I wanted to share some of the boxing day sales as well as a couple of things I bought in December.

We had a few cool and stormy days in December so I took the opportunity to get some more wear from my maternity skinny jeans, before the summer temperatures make jeans too hot to wear.

What I wore:


AwayFromTheBlue | Baby bump bracelet stack Rebecca Minkoff grey MAM bag
Necklace: custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette layered with Dogeared silver wishbone necklace
DressFrench Connection black paisley printed empire top (with pink Supre singlet underneath)
JeansJeanswest maternity skinny jeans in black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs two tone flats in blush and black
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey and  Hermes pink clic clac
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Had been wanting to wear this pretty printed top for a while! It looks nice without a baby bump, but I enjoyed wearing it in my last pregnancy so I wanted to get more wear from it this time around too. It was perfect with the black skinny jeans.

While these are denim, they are such a dark wash that you wouldn't be able to easily tell that they are jeans, so I wear them to the office quite a bit. A good pregnancy workwear option!

As I'm doing the fox in flats DAREcember style challenge, I wore a bit of a bracelet stack to meet the 'army candy' prompt.


Last worn: paisley print top, pink singlet, black maternity skinny jeans, two tone flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

Other ways to wear: paisley print top and a pencil skirtpink singlet and a floral dress, black maternity skinny jeans and a floral cami, cap toe flats and a maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff MAM and a leopard print dress.


Great boxing day sales:














What I wore:

Away From Blue | Metallic gold tee Jeanswest maternity skinny jeans sandals summer

AwayFromTheBlue | Silver Tiffany bracelet stack Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey
Necklace: Australian coin and crest necklace (new purchase)
Tee: Cotton On Luxe pearl tee
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesIkwetta 'Circles of life' sandals (C/O)
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Managed to do two style challenges in one! 'Red lip' for Fox in Flats DAREcember and 'sparkle and shine' for Summer Style File. After never having worn red lipstick before and only buying it as part of a challenge, I've quickly become a fan. I love this shade.

This tee was another one I'd been looking at in my wardrobe wanting to wear before the bump gets too big! It has a subtle metallic shimmer to it, a really nice piece and perfect for the challenge theme.

Despite the sunshine in the photos, it turned into quite an overcast day and with all the running around I was doing with toddler T (looking at day care centres for next year) I actually wished I'd worn a cardi a couple of times.

The necklace is new - I'd heard of the group For King & Country through Spotify, and then they did a live set at Church Online and I ended up buying the latest album. I saw this necklace while browsing their store and loved the message behind it, that women are priceless and that everyone should be treated with respect and honour.


Last worn: metallic tee, blue maternity skinny jeans, beaded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAM (above).

Other ways to wearmetallic tee and cobalt leather jacket, maternity skinny jeans and a graphic tee, beaded sandals and a blue maxi dress, grey MAM bag and print mixing outfit.


What I bought in December:

I was pretty good budget wise in December! As the baby bump gets bigger shopping for clothes is more difficult so I don't do it as often. I shopped more for Christmas presents for others. I did take advantage of the ASOS sale and pick myself up a couple of things I'd been wanting though.

    1. I did most of my boxing day shopping online, haha! I'm not a fan of crowds either. What a lovely gift for Christmas, a little bit of Tiffany is always nice! :)

    I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year and hope all goes well for you in the coming months.

    I still have not bought any jeans despite encouragement from my daughter and best friend. If I do, I think they would be black rather than blue and more of a straight leg style rather than skinnies.

    Best wishes

    1. Thanks Rebecca! :) I think it's important to wear what you are comfortable with no matter what others think. You may find that perfect pair of jeans for you one day, or you may not! :)
