Jeanswest Maternity Denim Skinny Jeans in Third Trimester and 40% Off Sale

Here's what I wore on Tuesday:

JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes Kelly double tour bracelet in rubis
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown


Wore my ninja baby tee to the OB's office on Tuesday, as I thought she would get a giggle out of it. She did, and so did the receptionist. Our next appointment is actually on baby's due date, so I wanted to take the chance to wear the tee to Tuesday's appointment in case baby shows up early. It's looking like baby wants to stay in longer than planned at the moment though, so on the plus side I'll probably have more chances to wear this fun tee :)

Incredibly similar to the last time I wore this tee, just with different accessories.


Last worn: ninja baby tee, maternity skinny jeans, Havaianas, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag.

Jeans and a tee again today! Added a bright bag for a bit of colour. I love these stretchy oversized tees, I have a handful of them and they are perfect. They drape so nicely without the bump, and yet they are oversized and baggy enough to still fit the baby bump at 38 weeks.

Thought that my maternity wardrobe would look a lot like this and that I'd be wearing jeans and tees more often, based on what my wardrobe was like before pregnancy. My regular wardrobe definitely has more jeans than skirts! I've favoured maxi skirts and dresses more, maybe because of the hot temperatures. These jeans are great though, really comfortable and I've never even considered trying another brand of maternity jeans as the Jeanswest ones are perfect for me.


Jeanswest have another 40% off sale at the moment - online and in store, and it includes already reduced sale items!

Simple black and white outfit for Wednesday. Really starting to struggle with finding nice things to wear to work now in the final few weeks of pregnancy. I'm quite looking forward to finishing up soon, and being a lot more casual with what I wear. Based on some previous pregnancies in the office, I know the levels of dress code I can drop to, but I want to try and look as professional as possible despite my limited choices. This was comfortable all day though, and was good to wear to our parenting class after work as well.

Thought that the little bit of print mixing with the leopard scarf and tartan skirt worked well due to the similar colours - what do you think?

Here's what I wore to work and out for dinner today:

Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes pink clic clac and purple Salvatore Ferragamo 'Vara' leather bow bracelet
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown


More print mixing, and I got to wear my maternity tights! I purchased these tights a couple of months ago when we had a little bit of a cold snap, figuring they would be essentials for the pregnancy. Just wearing them now at 36 weeks, so not as essential as I thought! They were only $8 from Target so I'm not feeling too bad about the purchase.

Picked a pretty dress to wear to work and after today, as we had a birthday dinner for my sister in the evening. The tights kept me warm and the dress was suitable for work and dinner, which saved me trying to find a second outfit to wear for the evening, hehe! I bought this dress in the Jeanswest sale as I loved the paisley print and the subtle print mixing, and guessed it would have no problems accommodating the third trimester baby bump despite being non-maternity.


I've been wearing my Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag a bit this week, but that will change now I have a new handbag purchase! Short reveal video of my latest splurge:
Yep, another Marc by Marc Jacobs bag!

Here's what I wore to work from home on Thursday:

TopAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee

Nice comfy outfit to work from home on Thursday. Had to pop out to the doctors and the post office. Got my flu shot at the doctors, but didn't get the standard lolly afterwards. Bought myself a magnum on the walk home instead ;)

If my Havaianas could meet the dress code at work, I'd be wearing them all the time! They fit my swollen preggo feet well. Switched up a little and wore the aqua ones instead of my usual go-to black ones. My usual black ones do have silver embellishment on them though, do you think that meets the definition of "ladies dress sandals" allowed in our dress code?! I wish!


Last worn: navy stripe tee, grey maxi skirt, tropical print Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC.

Casual Friday in the office and I decided to try the maxi dress approach again. Not very original, just doing the same thing I did a few weeks ago with the belted jacket over the top. It was such a lovely combination, I wanted to wear it again. Did try to change it a little by picking a different lightweight jacket this time :) I really like the cut-out detail on this one.


Last worn: laser cut-out jacket, MEV maternity maxi dress, black glitter belt, studded mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff grey MAM bag.

We had some Easter celebrations at work on Thursday, before the public holiday on Friday. That meant casual dress, so I had the chance to wear something super comfortable to the office. Despite being a little worried initially, I saw someone else in the office later in shorts, so I wasn't the most casually dressed person there. Usually when our area has dress down days when others might not I put a bit of effort in to not look too casual, but Thursday I just wanted to be comfortable!

We were encouraged to wear something to match with the Easter theme of the day so pastel singlet and bag seemed like a good choice, with the addition of a scarf for warmth in the morning. One guy dressed up in an Easter bunny onesie, and a few people wore bunny ears! Spent a bit of the day getting messy with egg decorating and taking part in the competitions too. It was a fun and relaxing end to the day before the long weekend.

Good Friday, and the first day of our long weekend! Another casual outfit as we didn't get up to very much, spent some more time preparing the house and nursery for baby's arrival. I did a lot of relaxing and lazing around too, haha! I'm being mindful of enjoying the time off and not pushing myself too much. Shorts and a tee was comfortable and perfect. These maternity shorts have been worn a lot more than I thought they would. The maternity tights I just 'had' to buy are still sitting unopened!

Wore this tee over my others as it has the fun pink panel on the back - supporting Renae from Simple Sequins with her Pink Friday as she faces cancer treatment.

Weird weather on Sunday! Was rainy and overcast but still quite warm. I ended up wearing a long sleeved tee and shorts combination, which kept me pretty comfortable all day. This striped top is another of the ones I bought in my last Iconic sale order. So perfect - although stripes usually are! We bought the last of our big purchases for baby as well, very exciting :)

Was a little cooler today, so longer sleeves again. Thought this printed top would look nice with the skinny jeans. A lady in the office this morning commented that it was good I could still fit into skinny jeans during my pregnancy, haha! They have a big (adjustable) elasticated waist, and the denim has some stretch to it too. The compliment did me feel a little better for outgrowing my first pair of maternity jeans though! I'm blaming that on the lack of stretch in the fabric, and not all of the chocolate baby seems to have a craving for.....

Maxi Dresses and Glitter Belts! Third Trimester Baby Bump Dressing

Here's what I wore for casual Friday:
balenciaga sorbet city studded sandals black french connection jersey maxi dress 3rd trimester pregnancy

Balenciaga sorbet city bag RH
Jacket: no label white drape jacket
NecklaceDogeared 3 Wishes stardust bead necklace
DressFrench Connection Meadow jersey maxi dress in black

ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet


Took advantage of the "casual" aspect of casual Friday and wore a maxi dress to the office! This outfit is actually an idea I'd had for a while, but had saved for the third trimester when I knew I'd be finding it difficult picking what to wear to work. I really like the drape on this jacket, and thought it kept the maxi dress from looking too informal. Got a few compliments, and a few "wow your bump is huge!" comments so I consider it a good outfit, haha.

Can't believe I've only worn this jacket once before on the blog though - definitely should be wearing it more often!

Another maxi dress! I think my pregnancy dressing is getting even more theme based than before. If something worked one day, I want to wear something really similar the next! It does make figuring out what to wear easier :)

This is what I wore this evening, for a family birthday dinner. I wore a similar outfit during the day, without the belt and with my Louis Vuitton neverfull. We spent the day with my father in law, and test drove another car. In the evening we went out for dinner with family and friends, then had cake and champagne (of course I skipped the champagne!). Was a really nice way to end the day.

Funny weather on Sunday - I had my scarf off and on all day as the rain came in now and then to cool things down. Picked a simple shorts and tee outfit as we had a dog trainer helping us with Cooper, to make sure that he is prepared when baby arrives. I wasn't sure how active we would be, so shorts seemed like a good choice. It's going to be a bit of a shock for Cooper when we arrive home with baby, so we want to make the transition go smoothly for him so he doesn't feel left out.

Oversized tee and pencil skirt combination again today! As I get further into the third trimester and baby grows larger, I'm more and more amazed by the ladies at work who managed to stay stylish and professional through their pregnancies. They made it all look very easy! I certainly felt under-dressed when I checked my calendar at work the morning and realised I had a huge meeting in the afternoon.

In my current project at work there are 3 pregnant ladies, and one of the guys is expecting his second child with his partner. While it's funny that this project seems to be the "baby" project, it's great that we can all share tips and advice with each other as first time mums. It is definitely baby year in the office, there are 3 other babies due in the wider team as well!

This oversized tee is the other one from my order last week. So pleased with how comfy these tees are, and how well they fit the bump. Don't even care that it makes it the third version of this top that I own, as they are all different colours. ;)
I felt great all day in this outfit. Lucky to work in an office where I can pair tees and pencil skirts and still meet the dress codes. Added a bit of colour with my Mulberry Alexa bag to avoid wearing too much black.

A few degrees cooler today so I brought out my maternity jeans again for casual Friday. :) Picked up this Asos top a while ago for a bargain in one of their sales. The only downside is that, like most maternity tops, it's a bit long on my short frame. I've only worn it once before, in my little pregnancy announcement video, when I could tuck it into the maxi skirt. Although it was really cheap, I should probably try to get more than one wear out of it, so decided to wear it again today. I find that there are some maternity tops I can only really wear with skinny jeans, as they are too long with skirts and I'm past the stage where I can comfortably tuck things in that the waist, haha. It's why I'm trying to wear my normal tops as much as possible.


If you haven't already seen, the Rebecca Minkoff Friends and Family sale is on now! 25% off everything, including sale items, with code 'RMFAM'.
If we didn't have more baby things to buy, I'd definitely be picking up something in the sale! There are so many cute bags :)

Third Trimester Casual Maxi Skirt Outfits for the Baby Bump: Stripe Tee, RM MAM | Ombre, LV Neverfull

Here's what I wore for casual Friday:

BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


Being in my third trimester, I've been finding a few clothes that fit me in the earlier trimesters definitely don't fit me any longer, as baby is growing so well! I still can't quite kick the habit of browsing through online clothing sales when I get email notifications though ;)

Earlier in the week I came across this oversized stripe tee on The Iconic. I have another Atmos&here oversized tee, and I love it. I last wore it to hide my growing belly, but it still fits the bump. When I saw it came in a striped version, I just had to get it, and I picked one up in black too....haha! Resulted in a very casual outfit for casual Friday at work. Some days I'm so grateful for the very relaxed dress code we have in the office, makes getting dressed easy.


Last worn: jersey maxi skirt, silver sandals, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB. First time I've worn the tee as it's a new purchase.

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Had a bit of a busy Saturday! Spent the morning with DH shopping in baby stores, went car shopping, took a test drive, had lunch and then I went shopping with Mum for some maternity essentials. I ended up picking up two new maxi skirts from Target too. You can probably tell that I've been in a very maxi skirt mood lately, so it was easy to justify the purchases. Plus the stretchy elastic waists and fabric mean I can buy my pre-pregnancy size and still accommodate the bump!

This maxi skirt has a small elasticated section on the back, but as it's so long I need to wear it high enough over the bump that it's all it needs. Thought that this red singlet would be quite complimentary with it. It certainly got a lot of lovely comments on instagram. :) Felt very colourful and summery all day.

Balenciaga Sapphire Purple City, Maternity Pencil Skirts, Marc By Marc Jacobs Mouse Flats

Here's what I wore to work on Monday:

Top: Jeanswest 'Felicity' maternity shirt in amethyst (new purchase)

BagBalenciaga purple RH city in 2008 sapphire


This top is another one of the new things I purchased in the Jeanswest 40% off sale the other week. They had just released a nursing range and then had 40% off everything...I was powerless to resist! When the parcel arrived on Friday, I loved this top right away. It looked great with the skinny jeans I was wearing when I tried it on.

It doesn't really work with the pencil skirt though, does it? Much too long. I have that problem with a few of my maternity tops, I am petite so the extra length they add to the maternity clothes to accommodate a growing bump can swamp me a little. And I don't want to run round belting everything. Might need to pair this top with pants next time, as it's really comfortable and colourful so I want to keep it.


Last worn: Asos tartan pencil skirtmetallic gold mouse flats, Balenciaga sapphire city bag.

BagBalenciaga purple RH city in 2008 sapphire


Very similar outfit to yesterday's - feeling uninspired! It was pouring rain this morning during the 5 minutes I have for photos, so indoor photos again. It cleared up and got much warmer almost right away.

Not sure how long I've had this top for exactly, but I probably bought it around the same time I got my other Cotton On top. So pleased that my clothes hoarding means I've kept a lot of my clothes from my flowy top phase a few years ago, they are just the thing for the growing baby bump!

Although this top I maybe can't wear again during the pregnancy. It is just a normal top and I don't quite think it can handle the third trimester bump, it felt a little short today as the bump made it ride up. Monday's top was too long, today's too short....still learning how best to dress baby and I! Feel free to leave me tips and tricks if you've been through this, your advice and comments are always appreciated :)

Simple jeans outfit for casual Friday. I'm so glad Jeanswest make maternity jeans so I have an easy casual Friday option! Although it was fun trying denim free casual Friday outfits late last year when I had outgrown my jeans and was still trying to hide the baby bump, it's nice to know I can just pick pants and a top and I'm set! :)

This top has a lovely print with a little bit of pink in it. I thought the pink singlet would be nice with it, and choose some pink accessories too.

Another simple, casual outfit! So glad I bought these shorts, as although it's officially autumn now the weather is still nice and warm.

Today we spent some more time at baby stores and picked out and picked up baby's crib. So excited to have the first piece of nursery furniture! I kept going around and snapping pictures of cute nursery ideas too. We won't be painting baby's room as DH is quite minimalist when it comes to decorating, but there are lots of cute accessories and cot sets. I'm in love with a little Disney Winnie the Pooh set at the moment, it's adorable! Sadly, quite expensive. Now we have the dimensions for the cot though we can start thinking more about colour schemes and themes, so much fun.

Professional Second Trimester Office Wear: Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran Bag, Pencil Skirts from Soon Maternity and Asos

Here's what I wore to work on Wednesday:
second trimester baby bump professional office wear outfit idea soon maternity pencil skirt

Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown (20% off at shopbop with code 'BIGEVENT14')


Wednesday was a big day at work! I tried on a few outfit ideas to look as professional as possible. It was the kind of day where if I'd had a suit, I'd have worn it. Ended up settling on a top and pencil skirt combination, I think it looked okay? Much too warm for a blazer, although it was a consideration for a while.

A few weeks back I had a massive "I have nothing to wear to dress the bump" freak out, and had the urge to go shopping. Knowing that most of what I would buy would be temporary, I hunted on ebay and put in some low bids. This pencil skirt is one of the items I won.
I've heard good things about Soon Maternity, and at $75 new, I got it for a complete bargain second hand. However, it's the wrong size and pretty worn, nothing like the description. I figure for the next couple of months I can put up with it, as it was the only cheap plain black maternity pencil skirt I could find. The seller massively overcharged on postage, so it wouldn't be worth my while returning it. At the very least, it's a good reminder to myself to not get carried away with pregnancy hormones, and be careful what I buy online!

Today's outfit was one of my Wednesday rejects! Thought that a plain pencil skirt would have been perceived to be more professional than a printed one. This was absolutely perfect for a normal day in the office. Really liked this outfit, even better than yesterday's. More cheerful with the colour I think.

Might not wear this top again in my pregnancy though, I felt like it was bursting at the seams a little over the baby bump. I even got a "wow you look massive!" comment, which just made me giggle to be honest. I'm aware my belly is huge and I'm pleased baby is growing well. People can say what they like, as long as my OBGYN is happy and baby is growing normally, I'll keep expanding! Especially when I keep craving chocolate ;)
