A very blue outfit! :) On Friday we had a team meeting to celebrate a few work achievements and milestones, and I wasn't sure what to wear. My sister had given me a fun ninja baby tee at Christmas, but I also thought I should be a little professional as one of the things we were there for was a work achievement of mine. Ended up wearing my striped shirt to be on the safe side. Although when my manager mentioned my baby news as another reason to celebrate I did wish I'd worn the fun tee, haha!

When I first got this shirt for Christmas I commented that it had plenty of room for a growing baby bump, but I probably won't be able to wear it much longer! So pleased to see baby is on track.

Last worn: striped shirt, maternity skinny jeans, glitter flats, Balenciaga day bag.

Here's what I wore today:
away from blue second trimester dressing the baby bump little black dress

DressAsos tribal necklace dipped hem black dress
Shoes: Novo 'Tahnee' black studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff hobo - Nikki in Silverstreak

Simple outfit for a Saturday. Went with this dress which requires no extra accessorising as I was feeling a little uninspired for what to wear today with the heat. I suspect that I will be wearing a lot more dresses over the next few months!

Funny that last time I wore this dress I was wearing it because the oversized shape hid my then little baby bump quite well - definitely no hiding it now!

Last worn: beaded neckline dress, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Nikki hobo.

Linking up with Fashion Item Friday, Fashion Informant, Monday Must-Haves today.

  1. Look at you rockin' those skinny jeans baby bump and all! You look great!

  2. You know, I'm not really a handbag person but there are two brands with styles I really do like and could maybe see saving up for one day- Balenciaga and Rebecca Minkoff. And look what you have here today to tempt me. :) You have great maternity style and I'm going to have to see if you live in Miami or something because it must be pretty warm where you are to be wearing flip flops still! -Gina
