Rebecca Minkoff Grey Mini MAB, Lace. Jeanswest LBD, MEV Blue Bubble Tank, Asos Pencil Skirt

Here's what I wore to work on Wednesday:
Jeanswest Gisele contrast lace dress LBD for work in third trimester baby bump

Rebecca Minkoff MAM Balenciaga Pearly grey metallic wrap bracelet stack
NecklaceDogeared silver wishbone necklace
DressJeanswest 'Gisele' contrast lace dress
ShoesWittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


After Monday's too long top and Tuesday's too short top frustrating me a little, I went with a simple dress today. It got lots of compliments, as it is a very pretty dress. Even got told in one of my meetings that I looked cute which really made me smile :) Unfortunately, as it's a standard dress and not a maternity dress, I did feel myself tugging it back down as the elastic waistband rode up over the bump through the day, haha. Maybe a belt would have helped it stay in place better.


Last worn: black lace dress, Wittner black flats, Rebecca Minkoff soft grey MAM.



Here's what I wore to work today:

NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
TopMEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O Zibibo
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


More lace! Wanting to feel feminine and pretty and so I've been going for lace it seems. This skirt is starting to be stretched beyond it's comfort zone now, although I'm hoping I can still get a few more wears out of it before baby arrives. For a non-maternity piece, it's made it through into the third trimester with me which is great. I had a lady come up to me at work today and ask how I was still managing to squeeze into this skirt with the baby belly - she was surprised the skirt had an elastic waist as she'd always assumed it was a normal zipper like most pencil skirts. All my zipper/button up pencil skirts are definitely unwearable now though!

With flowy/oversized tops, dresses and elasticated waist skirts, I'm pleased I'm managing to keep using my regular wardrobe as much as possible during pregnancy. Means spending less money on maternity clothes and more money on cute baby clothes ;)
