ASOS Maternity Pencil Skirts, Grey Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag. Third Trimester Corporate Style

With my maternity leave approaching, I wanted to give my ASOS maternity pencil skirts one last wear in the office. They've lasted me well, through two pregnancies. The black and white prints gave me more chance to play along with the #SNScolour challenge on Instagram too.

What I wore:

AwayFromTheBlue | metallic grey accessories Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini MAM bag
NecklaceJeanswest Taki necklace (C/O)
TeeJeanswest Sonny maternity tee in lagoon marle (C/O)
SkirtAsos maternity graphic print pencil skirt (non-maternity version here)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey (on sale in black)
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was metallics. While I have a metallic tee, I certainly can't fit it in the third trimester! I decided to use accessories for this, with the silver necklace, Balenciaga wrap bracelet and studded mouse flats.

I had a quite day in the office without a lot of meetings so a simple tee and pencil skirt outfit was perfect.


Last worn: green maternity tee, graphic print maternity pencil skirt, studded mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

Other ways to weargreen maternity tee and skinny jeans, graphic print pencil skirt and grey tee, studded mouse flats and a printed wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag and a red leopard print dress.

SkirtAsos maternity panelled pencil skirt in tartan check (non-maternity version here)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs two tone flats in blush and black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was white, so it seemed obvious to wear my white maternity tank. I did worry it would be a little too casual for the office, so added the blazer over the top. I'm looking forward to wearing this blazer more when the autumn weather finally hits Brisbane and it cools down a little! It's great to have a cover-up in the office air-conditioning though. The blazer is a spring item from 2014 I picked up in the Jeanswest outlet last year but it's the perfect pastel pink to be classed as 'Rose Quartz', one of the colours of the year everyone is raving about.

I felt the statement necklace was a nice touch with this outfit - added some colour and sparkle so it didn't look too dull. This ended up being one of my favourite pregnancy office outfits, so a nice way to say farewell to this skirt.


Last worn: pink boyfriend blazer, white maternity tank, Asos tartan pencil skirt, two tone flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAM (above).

Other ways to wearpink boyfriend blazer and denim shorts, white maternity tank and a printed kimono, Asos tartan pencil skirt layered up for a rainy day, cap toe flats and skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff MAM and a maxi skirt.

  13. I always love your looks with the pencil skirts--they're just such fun pieces. The second look is my favorite because I just LOVE that pale pink blazer. I really want more of that color in my closet!

  14. I really like the effect the pink blazer and the fun colored statement necklace add to the black and white skirt. I do this similar match up with a black and white top. I find it pairs almost effortlessly with any coloring I try! Getting so close Mica! I bet you are more than ready for maternity leave. (:

  16. I had never really given ASOS a thought in terms of maternity wear before. I do love those pencil skirts on you though, and I LOVE that top skirt print every time you wear it! You always look so comfortable in your work clothes. How long is maternity leave in Australia?

  21. Of course, both of these outfits are great but I have to say the second one is my favorite. Especially the color of the blazer - I feel like I see either the basics (white, black) or bold colors for blazers, so the pastel is a nice change up and it matches so well with the necklace!

  32. These flats are too cute! The first outfit is my favorite, the print on the skirt is great. I rarely wear pencil skirts, pregnant or not, don't know why, to be honest, as they are so elegant.
