ASOS Maternity Pencil Skirts, Grey Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag. Third Trimester Corporate Style

With my maternity leave approaching, I wanted to give my ASOS maternity pencil skirts one last wear in the office. They've lasted me well, through two pregnancies. The black and white prints gave me more chance to play along with the #SNScolour challenge on Instagram too.

What I wore:

Away From Blue | Jeanswest green maternity tee asos graphic print pencil skirt 3rd trimester office outfit

AwayFromTheBlue | metallic grey accessories Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini MAM bag
NecklaceJeanswest Taki necklace (C/O)
TeeJeanswest Sonny maternity tee in lagoon marle (C/O)
SkirtAsos maternity graphic print pencil skirt (non-maternity version here)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey (on sale in black)
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was metallics. While I have a metallic tee, I certainly can't fit it in the third trimester! I decided to use accessories for this, with the silver necklace, Balenciaga wrap bracelet and studded mouse flats.

I had a quite day in the office without a lot of meetings so a simple tee and pencil skirt outfit was perfect.


Last worn: green maternity tee, graphic print maternity pencil skirt, studded mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs two tone flats in blush and black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was white, so it seemed obvious to wear my white maternity tank. I did worry it would be a little too casual for the office, so added the blazer over the top. I'm looking forward to wearing this blazer more when the autumn weather finally hits Brisbane and it cools down a little! It's great to have a cover-up in the office air-conditioning though. The blazer is a spring item from 2014 I picked up in the Jeanswest outlet last year but it's the perfect pastel pink to be classed as 'Rose Quartz', one of the colours of the year everyone is raving about.

I felt the statement necklace was a nice touch with this outfit - added some colour and sparkle so it didn't look too dull. This ended up being one of my favourite pregnancy office outfits, so a nice way to say farewell to this skirt.


Last worn: pink boyfriend blazer, white maternity tank, Asos tartan pencil skirt, two tone flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAM (above).

Corporate Style: Maternity Pencil Skirts and Grey Tees in Summer, Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Bag

I will always love a grey tee! Even after my wardrobe detox session and finding out that grey wasn't the best colour for me, I still wear it and still have a bunch of grey tees in my wardrobe. They are just so easy to wear. And thankfully, my very relaxed 'business casual' office dress code makes a tee and a pencil skirt an easy outfit for a day without a lot of face-to-face meetings.

What I wore:

Away From Blue | Second Trimester Office Wear Grey tee Asos maternity pencil skirt

AwayFromTheBlue | Rebecca Minkoff MAM Hermes Kelly double tour bracelet rubis
Necklace: Diva red stone necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
SkirtAsos maternity graphic print pencil skirt (non-maternity version here)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey (on sale in black)
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes Kelly double tour bracelet in rubis
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


Why I wore it:

This was the first outfit for the Fox in Flats style challenge, the theme was 'stripes' so I thought the graphic stripe print on this pencil skirt worked well, especially when worn with my favourite grey tee.

I added the red necklace for a bit of colour with the otherwise fairly monochrome outfit - and also as that was one of the tips the stylist gave me. If I insisted on keeping my grey tees (I did keep most of them...) then I should try to wear colourful accessories with them.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, grey tee, graphic print pencil skirt, studded mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB.

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs two tone flats in blush and black
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes twilly Kelly en Cal├Ęche tied as bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


Why I wore it:

Again, going with the easy option of a grey tee and a printed pencil skirt. The style challenge for the day was 'new do' and as I'd got my hair cut the day before I just fell back on this simple outfit as the summer heat usually gets me feeling pretty uninspired and looking for easy options. That's why the DAREcember style challenge is so great, at a time I want to do nothing other than sit in the pool in a bikini, I'm encouraged to explore my wardrobe, try different things and have some fun with my clothes. I've shared more before about why I love instagram style challenges.

I just wouldn't go do anything as permanent as actually get a new haircut for a challenge next time, I regretted the cut pretty quickly! Thankfully I still have some unshared pics with my longer hair as I figure out how to style the new length.


Last worn: grey tee, tartan pencil skirt, Hermes twilly, cap toe flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB (above).

Other ways to wear: grey tee layered up for winter, tartan pencil skirt and a ruffled cami, two tone flats and tights, Hermes twilly bow on a bagRebecca Minkoff MAM and a printed dress.






Asos is a great place to pick up some bargain pencil skirts that really last - I have skirts over 5 years old that are still going strong, and this is the second pregnancy for these maternity skirts! Plus you can get up to 70% off in their outlet.

Plain Maternity Tanks, Printed Pencil Skirts, Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere: Third Trimester Office Wear

I'd fallen into a rut of wearing wrap dresses to the office, so tried to make a little bit of effort and wear my maternity pencil skirts for a change. I do love these skirts, and wore them a lot in my last pregnancy, but this time around I've been so uninspired with facing the summer heat in the third trimester that dresses have just seemed easier!

What I wore:

Away From Blue | Third Trimester Office wear maternity tank printed pencil skirt blazer

AwayFromTheBlue | Baby Bump Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey (on sale here!)
SingletJeanswest maternity tank in white
SkirtAsos maternity graphic print pencil skirt (non-maternity version here)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

It was a slightly cooler morning so I got excited and wore a jacket. While I liked the extra print mixing it brought to my outfit, I quickly realised that it was still much too hot for wearing layers, and regretted my decision a little.

By the time I went to my OB's appointment in the afternoon, I'd had my jacket off for a while!

BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Kept things much simpler with this outfit - no extra layer, I added a statement necklace for a bit of interest instead. I've worn this necklace and tank together before - I love the way the colours look against the black.

I felt really happy and confident in this outfit all day - even though it's just a simple maternity tank and pencil skirt outfit. An outfit doesn't have to be overly fancy or complex to make you feel good :)

Third Trimester Pregnancy Outfit Inspiration: 55 Outfit Ideas

Third trimester pregnancy dressing comes with it's own set of challenges! A lot of the regular wardrobe options that could be worn in the second trimester are outgrown in the third trimester, reducing the outfit possibilities and making getting dress rather uninspiring.

For my recent pregnancy, I implemented a third trimester pregnancy capsule wardrobe to try make it a little more fun.

The third trimester is definitely the time to repeat outfits that make you look and feel good, and to do so unashamedly! Find things that work for you and wear them as many times as you like. I've included 55 outfit ideas for the third trimester below, from both of my pregnancies. You can click on the links under the images to view more info about them.


Office Outfits:


In the third trimester, I still wore my ASOS maternity pencil skirts often, but the standout pieces were my wrap dresses. They were such an easy outfit that always fit the growing bump and never failed to look good. I wore wrap dresses a lot! I was able to find some regular non-maternity dresses in my wardrobe that still accommodated the baby bump too.

Second Trimester Pregnancy Outfit Inspiration: 38 Outfit Ideas

I've been blogging for over 4 years and through two pregnancies, so I thought a wrap up of my favourite maternity outfits would be a great resource for anyone looking for pregnancy outfit inspiration!

As well as sharing my second trimester travel essentials I previously did a series about my wardrobe changes in each trimester you might find helpful too. I spoke about what worked and what didn't in my second trimester.

This will be a very photo-heavy post as I share a few of my favourite second trimester outfits. 38 different pregnancy outfit ideas! There are links below all the photos if you want more details.


Office Wear:


I bought two ASOS maternity pencil skirts and they got a lot of wear in the office.

My single maternity wrap dress was a real wardrobe workhorse, being worn almost weekly, although I continued to wear my regular non-maternity dresses in the second trimester as well. Fit and flare or empire waist dresses were perfect for this.

Maxi Dresses:


I only needed one maternity maxi dress for both pregnancies, the majority of my existing maxi dresses were stretchy enough to work through all three trimesters. There were a few I outgrew in the second trimester though.

Maternity Denim - Jeans and Shorts:


I added a second pair of maternity denim shorts to my wardrobe for my most recent pregnancy as I was heavily pregnant over summer and it was too hot for jeans. Previously I was doing a full work week and with the cooler temperatures and dressing for casual Friday, my maternity jeans were worn a lot more.

Oversized Tees. Maternity Shorts, RM Mini MAC, Skull Scarf | Asos Graphic Print Pencil Skirt, MbMJ Fran Bag

Here's what I wore on Sunday:

Rebecca Minkoff coated canvas mini MAC bag in berry stripe hermes kelly rubis bracelet
ScarfAlexander McQueen red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
TopMarc by Marc Jacobs blossom pocket tee in grey
ShortsJeanswest maternity rolled up shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes Kelly double tour bracelet in rubis
BagRebecca Minkoff coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe


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.


Last worn: red skull scarf, Marc By Marc Jacobs tee, maternity denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff canvas mini MAC.



Here's what I wore to work today:

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!

Back to the usual what I've been wearing. It was actually a little exciting to open up the big bag of maternity clothes I'd set aside post-baby, and rediscover pieces I'd loved in my last pregnancy. I was extremely happy to see these Asos maternity pencil skirts again, they were real workhorses before.

What I wore:

Away From Blue | Second trimester workwear Asos maternity pencil skirt ruffle cami

AwayFromBlue | Balenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH
Scarf: Louis Vuitton "comete" bandeau scarf
Necklace: Lovisa silver love knitted heart pendant necklace

Bracelets: the usual plus House of Harlow Aztec bangles in fuschia pink and silver, white and silver, Hermes pink clic clac
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Just like last time I wore this scarf as a headband to the office, I got a bunch of compliments, which is always nice! I had a scan to check baby's progress in the early morning, and then it was Melbourne cup day so we had a bunch of events in the afternoon in the office. As I had just recently finished up the Frocktober fundraising challenge, I didn't really want to wear my usual dress option for Melbourne cup.

I figured the ruffles on this cami made it a little more dressy than a standard pencil skirt outfit, and the scarf in my hair was a nod to the headpieces worn to our themed event that afternoon.


Last worn: Louis Vuitton bandeau, ruffle cami, tartan pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga part time bag.

Other ways to wearLouis Vuitton bandeau as a belt with a LBDruffle cami and a maix skirt, tartan pencil skirt in the third trimester, black ballet flats and skinny jeans, Balenciaga part time bag and a striped dress.

BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Back when I was still hiding the baby bump on the blog and in the office, I'd gone through my wardrobe pulling out a few possible outfit ideas. This pretty teal top was one of them, so it had been hanging at the front of the wardrobe waiting for me to wear it. I didn't get around to wearing it before starting Frocktober, so it had been sitting there unworn.

Was wondering what to wear with this pencil skirt when I saw this top and figured I'd better wear it again before the spring weather heats up too much. It was a slightly cooler day when I wore this so it worked out perfectly. I wasn't too happy with the length of this top worn like this - I usually always partially tuck it in - but I liked the combination of the teal with the black and white.


Last worn: teal henley, Asos graphic pencil skirt, studded mouse flats, Balenciaga part time bag (above).

Asos Maternity Pencil Skirts, New Years Fashion Resolutions, Australian Giveaway!

Have a special Australian only giveaway today, just scroll down!


Here's what I wore to work on Monday:
Empire waist tie detail top asos checked tartan plaid pencil skirt second trimester outfit

away from blue balenciaga handbag sapphire classic city bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette layered with Dogeared silver wishbone necklace and Chanel necklace (close-up)

ShoesWittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bracelets: the usual plus purple bracelet made by a talented friend and purple Salvatore Ferragamo 'Vara' leather bow bracelet
BagBalenciaga purple RH city in 2008 sapphire


Dug this top out from the back of my wardrobe, it's the first wearing of it on the blog. Be prepared to see a few more "new" items rescued from my wardrobe coming out now, have been spending a fair bit of time trying to clean my wardrobe and found lots of forgotten things tucked in a corner! I wonder just how much is still hiding in there....

I used to wear this top a lot to uni and to work when I worked in a non-public facing office role and wore jeans every day. Over 5 years ago! It's obvious now why it got less wear when I changed jobs and was no longer able to wear denim every day, not a flattering silhouette.

It prompted one lady in the office to come over and ask me if I was pregnant, so not the best outfit to wear when I'm disguising the baby bump at work. Quite comfortable though, and will see me through the next few months easily! :)


Last worn: Ray Ban, tartan pencil skirt, black flats, Balenciaga sapphire city bag. First time I've worn the top on the blog.

Linking up with Style Sessions, Spotlight Weekly Linkup today.

ShoesNine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes Kelly double tour bracelet in rubis
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


I thought that the sequin embellishments on this top were a nice pairing with the graphic print on the pencil skirt, and really liked the combination. Funny how much smaller the bump looks today because of the different clothes too! :)


Last worn: Ray Ban (see above), sequin detail tank, graphic print pencil skirt, glitter flats, Rebecca Minkoff grey MAM.

Grey Tank, Striped Maxi, RM Mini MAC | Khaki Tee, Asos Maternity Pencil Skirt, Alexander Wang Rocco

Here's what I wore on Sunday:
silver owl necklace grey tank target black white stripe maxi skirt pregnancy

RM aqua mini MAC bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: silver Owl pendant long necklace from Paddy's Markets
Top: Jeanswest 'Kate' grey panel tank
Skirt: Target black and white striped maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine


The summer heat has come back for another go it seems! Was really warm on Sunday. I decided yet again to wear another maxi skirt. This is one of the ones I bought at Target the other day. Definitely starting to develop a bit of a pregnancy uniform here....always liked maxi skirts pre-pregnancy so I guess it's not much of a surprise I'm wearing them so much now. They are the only non-maternity options for my bottom half that still fit due to the stretchy waists, haha!  It's interesting, right now skirts seem to be wining, but I wonder if I'll end up back in (maternity) jeans more often when the weather starts to cool.


Last worn: Ray-ban Wayfarers, grey tank top, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Aquamarine mini MAC. First time I've worn the skirt as it's a recent purchase.



Here's what I wore today:
Third trimester office asos maternity pencil skirt oversized khaki tee french connection

alexander wang rocco bag in dark argon teal rose gold studs
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: gifted gold heart shaped necklace
TopFrench Connection oversized khaki green tee
SkirtAsos graphic print pencil skirt - on sale! (maternity version here)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
Bracelets: the usual plus jade beads and Roie Designs labradorite bracelets
BagAlexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon


Saint Patrick's day today so I used that as inspiration to find something to wear. Although I'm not sure if the khaki green top pairs quite well with the teal Rocco bag, they both fit so I was happy! :) I do prefer the fit of the tee without a baby bump though!

Will probably be packing the Rocco away for a while - much too heavy for me at the moment when I'm carrying baby too, got a bit of a sore back this evening.
