Graphic Tees and Maxi Skirts: Third Trimester Petite Pregnancy Style

I'm in the third trimester now and my wardrobe options are quickly running out. I've been looking at lots of tops in my wardrobe and hoping I can squeeze in one last wear before the baby bump outgrows them! I was happy to get another wear from my graphic tees.

I've worn graphic tees and maxi skirts together before, it's a nice casual outfit. Despite being petite, I love my maxi skirts! I think anyone can wear them (even if they might need a little hemming first).

What I wore:

AwayFromBlue | Monster threads cat dog tee striped maxi skirt baby bump SAHM outfit

AwayFromTheBlue | Balenciaga magenta day hobo bag Roie Designs wrap bracelet baby bump
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace layered with Tai gold alphabet necklace
Tee: Monster Threads cat and dog graphic tee
Skirt: Target black and white striped maxi skirt
Shoesslim gold Havaianas (on sale!)
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
Bag: Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

Wore this to spend the morning with family and then go out to the books and rhymes session at the local library. The shirt started to feel a little tight over the baby belly near the end of the day, I was pushing it to the limits definitely. I loved how much the magenta Balenciaga bag popped with the neutral outfit though.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, graphic cat dog tee, striped maxi skirt, Havaianas, Balenciaga magenta day.

Other ways to weargraphic cat dog tee without a baby bump, striped maxi skirt and maternity tank, Balenciaga magenta day and denim shorts.


Great graphic tees under $50:






What I wore:

Away From Blue | Third trimester graphic tee grey jersey maxi skirt baby bump

AwayFromTheBlue | Balenciaga magenta day bag 2005 05 RH
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
Tee: Monsterthreads star print graphic tee
Skirt: Target grey marle maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bag: Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

I enjoyed the outfit combination above so was eager to try it again with another graphic tee. I've worn this tee and maxi skirt together before, back when I was in the first trimester, and the weather was a little cooler. Looks very different with the baby bump. Again, I loved the way the bag popped with this outfit.

It's more than the second time I've worn this bag on the blog since I bought it, and I'm reviewing everything I buy after wearing it twice to check I'm buying the right things. So here is my purchase review:

I love this bag! I'll have a more in depth review up on youtube soon but I already love this style of bag and the colour. I find the Balenciaga day is the perfect hobo bag for me, and I've had a few magenta Balenciagas before, I adore the colour. This is definitely a keeper, I'm so pleased I scored it on sale over Christmas.


Last worn: navy graphic tee, grey jersey maxi skirt, Havaianas, Balenciaga magenta day bag (above).

Other ways to weargraphic tee and a pink blazer, grey jersey maxi skirt for a trip to Melbourne, Balenciaga magenta day bag in the office.

  4. Ahaha. Love that you have a big stash of funny, unusual graphic tees. They are both cute, as a not closeted sci-fi fan I'd go with the second one for myself.

    Have a great weekend :)

    1. I do have some nice ones! I massively reduced the number I own a while back as I don't wear them as much as I should. I kept my absolute favourites though :)

  6. OMG... I can imagine the stress in the morning: you pick up a tee and wonder if it will fit.. I guess if things come to a point where none fit, have you thought of using up your husbands clothes ?

    1. haha yes it's hard knowing if the outfit you thought up mid week will still work on the weekend! Luckily I have enough maternity pieces that I haven't had to raid my husband's wardrobe yet :)

  22. You always look great in maxi skirts. I think anyone can wear maxi/midi lengths. It's all about finding the right fit and length even if it means hemming like you said.

  42. Your maxi dress and maxi skirt outfits always encourage me to take a closer look at the maxis in my closet and inspire me to make more outfits out of them. <3 How very adorable you look with that graphic tee. Happy Tuesday dear. XOXO, Elif
