Singlets, Shorts and Kimonos: Autumn SAHM Style at 39 Weeks Pregnant

Another pregnancy OOTD post! While baby has arrived, I've got a few more pregnancy outfits scheduled to share on the blog. I'm at home enjoying the newborn cuddles and only venturing out when we absolutely have to. You can see my new mum 'style' on instagram.


Autumn in Brisbane didn't bring the cool change it usually does, so my autumn pregnancy style has been pretty much the same as my summer pregnancy style - maternity shorts, singlets, and printed kimonos!

What I wore:

Away From Blue | 39 weeks pregnant autumn outfit navy floral kimono black tank denim shorts

AwayFromTheBlue | Mulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey (on sale here!)
SingletJeanswest maternity tank in black
Shorts:  Jeanswest Georgie maternity boyfriend shorts (available in non-maternity also)
Shoes: black slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
BagMulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey

Why I wore it:

I loved how well the Mulberry Alexa bag went with the colours of this outfit! And as I've mentioned before, this simple outfit formula of singlet, shorts and kimono makes me feel happy and comfortable each time I wear it.

Wore this to run a few errands and attend my obstetrician appointment in the afternoon, not an overly busy day.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, floral print kimono, black maternity tank, boyfriend denim shorts, Havaianas, Mulberry Foggy grey Alexa bag.

Other ways to wearfloral print kimono and skinny jeans, black maternity tank and a maxi skirt, boyfriend denim shorts and laceMulberry Foggy Grey Alexa with pink and grey.



Where to buy the Mulberry Alexa bag:








What I wore:

Away From Blue | Third Trimester maternity tank & Shorts, navy kimono and lilac bag

AwayFromTheBlue | Mulberry regular foggy grey Alexa lilac bag with blue outfit
JacketNew Look Petite print kimono (on sale, 70% off!)
Necklace: Eye Candy LA 'Sasha' statement necklace
SingletJeanswest maternity tank in white
ShortsJeanswest maternity rolled up shorts
Shoes: slim gold Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus silver and turqoise beaded bracelet set and old blue bead bracelets
BagMulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this to attend my first Australian Breastfeeding Association meeting. With all the craziness when toddler T was born (and being without a car for a while) I had never gotten around to signing up, so I figured I'd best give it a go before baby was born this time. It's always good to make new mummy friends too.

Kept with my simple fail-safe outfit formula like I've worn above as I'd be going to a new place and meeting new people I'd only spoken to online before. For a little confidence boost it's nice to be happy with your outfit.


Last worn: navy printed kimono, white maternity tank, bermuda denim shorts, Havaianas, Mulberry Foggy Grey Alexa (above).

Other ways to wearnavy printed kimono with a green top, white maternity tank and a pencil skirt, bermuda denim shorts and a red bag, Mulberry Foggy grey Alexa bag in the office.

    1. I don't know what the equivalent is in Europe, but the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) is an organisation that provides support and assistance for people who want to know anything about feeding babies. They have a helpline you can call 24/7 which is wonderful for those late night feeds when you can't figure out why baby isn't latching right, haha! They do local meet ups too so you can chat to other mummies and trained lactation consultants, it's funded by members.

  14. So my first kimono purchase of 2016 finally arrived last week. I ordered it in March, so technically it's April arrival didn't break my no buy. (; Though the shipping took forever, I found it on Amazon for a steal! I am sooo excited to wear it and use some of your styling tips! I mean, if it ever decides to be Spring?! haha

  17. Both looks are lovely, but the first is my fave; I love the black kimono paired with the blank top underneath, perfect for fall! I also adore that purse you wore in both looks, the color and size is perfect! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

  19. I agree, it's always nice to wear something you're comfortable in whenever you're going to a new place! I usually only stray from that when I'm with my best friend (we like dressing up unnecessarily and going to new restaurants) or I'm with a group of people I know well and we're all going the extra mile. Plus dressing up makes me feel really cute haha.

  21. Kimonos and short outfits are right in my alley! Love to pair these two items together for a casual and slightly boho vibe. By the way, I watched your video and I have to say your voice is really adorable! And of course, the Mulberry Alexa bag is gorgeous and so practical!

I love the colour and how versatile it seems, you could pretty much style it with anything! You know I always love your kimonos, also; they look super comfy and I adore the floral pattern on the first one. :) <3 Thanks so much for sharing, hun, and I hope you're doing great! Kisses. x x

  39. Both of these outfits are so you Mica and that's a compliment. So casual yet vibrant and put together. You own many pretty kimonos. I only have one. Two gorgeous necklaces. I need that starburst pendant badly. If you like welcome by and linkup today.

    I will be heading over your Instagram soon to see the latest. I hope your sweet boys are doing well.

  41. You have the prettiest collections of kimono. I have one but the tassels got all messed up when I washed it and I have not bought another one.

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!
