Black, White and Grey With Bright Balenciaga Bags - Maxi Dress, Tee and Pencil Skirt

Here's what I wore for Easter Monday:
Third Trimester 34 week pregnant easy black white maxi dress bright yellow clutch

balenciaga mangue mango yellow envelope clutch gold hardware
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
DressPearl black and white jersey maxi dress
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted gold bangle set
BagBalenciaga envelope clutch in 2012 mangue with giant 12 RGGH

We had a birthday/Easter lunch at the in-laws on Monday. A maxi dress seemed like a nice choice, especially with the heat! Thought that the bright clutch was a nice addition to balance out the black and white of the dress.
I have some more colourful maxi dresses that I could have worn, but not all of my non-maternity maxi dresses fit in the third trimester. Part of the reason why I bought another one on Saturday ;)

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, printed maxi dress, Havaianas, Balenciaga envelope clutch.

Here's what I wore to work today:

Necklace: old pink beaded necklace
Top: Kmart light grey round neck tee
SkirtAsos graphic print pencil skirt - on sale! (maternity version here)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet

Back to work today! A short 3 day working week due to the public holidays. A lot of people took the 3 days off to make a long Easter break, but hubby and I are saving our leave for baby's arrival. Just a simple pencil skirt and tee combination to be comfortable. Very similar combination to the last time I wore this tee! I've said it before, but the relaxed 'business casual' environment at work has made it easy for pregnancy dressing. It's good I can still wear tees and pencil skirts, even if the tees are being stretched to the limits at the moment!

I took the time last week to list some items on ebay in an attempt to make more space at home after my wardrobe clearout - checkout my auctions. Selling a mix of clothes and even handbags too. Everything ships internationally :)

Last worn: Atmos&Here grey tee, Kmart grey tee, Asos maternity pencil skirtstudded mouse flats, Balenciaga sorbet city.

  8. You rock maxi dresses like no one else! I love how you added that clutch to brighten up the dress :) I hope you had lots of fun on Easter. Like I've said, no chocolate for me, but I definitely hope you have indulged! xo

    1. Oh yes I certainly indulged! Some for me, some for baby....haha!

  9. These black and grey outfits look fab with your lovely bright bags x

  10. Love the first dress!! Oh you are doing more clean out? I hope you are able to really streamline what you are keeping and treasure everything :) no Easter break here for me (sigh)! And of course no ANZ day either (double sigh)

    1. Yep, I'm trying to pare my wardrobe down as much as possible. Not having much luck though, I still own too much stuff I think!

      Such a shame you don't get an Easter break! :( Hope you had some chocolate at least!

  11. Adoring the OOTD! Great skirt and the hot pink bag is gorgeous :)

  18. Obsessed with your bags! I love Balenciaga. You look great by the way!

  19. You are looking cuter each week that your pregnancy progresses. Loving the maxi dress and you know I have complimented you on that B+W Skirt before. Love the bags too and how they bring some pop of bright color to each look.

    Take it easy sweetie. Just a couple more months left.

    <3 Ada.

    1. Yep, not long to go now! So exciting! :)

  20. Hi! Meeting you through Pleated Poppy. Love the outfit, and of course both bags! I have the Vieux Rose and just love it. I also love seeing another puppy in the pic!

    Stop by and I took a pic of my pup with me too today


  21. Where are you? All your pictures always look so sunny and bright. My world needs to take a tip or two from yours. You look gorgeous in both outfits, by the way, as always. Rosemary x


    1. hehe - I'm in Australia, so it's usually sunny here most days :)

  22. Your bump is absolutely adorable! The maxi and the mid-length skirt look fantastic and seems to keep you cool. I know I was hot all of the time during my spring/summer pregnancies. Visiting from #RealMomStyle :)

    1. Yes, I'm very glad I wasn't in my third trimester over the height of summer, would have been much too warm!

  23. Happy Easter Mica! You are looking more and more radiant as the months go on. How very exciting! I am always in awe of your wonderful handbag collection in all the colours of the rainbow

  24. I love the contrast between the yellow and navy. Hope you had a happy Easter!


  25. That patterned skirt looks so great, and your bump is adorable!

  26. Cute outfits! Love the yellow clutch and pink bag!


  27. I tried the maternity version of this ASOS skirt but it was far too tight on me sadly. I spotted it on your thumbnail on Agi's linkup. Need to scroll back further now for more maternity inspiration and see how far along you are, I'm almost 31 weeks myself :)

    1. Congrats! 31 weeks, not long to go!

      Shame the skirt didn't fit, sometimes ordering the next size up helps :)

  28. OMG THAT PINK BAG! I want to own a Balenciaga bag some day for sure! Just found your blog in the link up!
