Melbourne Girl's Weekend - Second Trimester Travel Style And Pregnancy Trip Essentials

First up, thank you all so much for your kind words on my last post when I mentioned our house hunting is taking longer than we thought. Hopefully we will find the perfect place soon.


Slightly longer post than usual, sharing 3 outfits. It's what I wore when we went down to Melbourne for a girl's weekend to enjoy the food and the shopping. I did think about summarising everywhere we went and ate but it was such a big weekend the list was quite long and would be boring to read. I'll just do my usual and focus on what I wore instead.

It feels odd to be sharing such layered up winter-like outfits in December, but it was a cold weekend when we went down and the temps were around 10 to 20 Celsius, a good 20 degrees cooler than Brisbane. More like autumn/winter temperatures than spring!

What I wore:

Away From Blue | Second Trimester Flight Outfit grey tee Jeanswest maternity skinny jeans
NecklaceTai gold alphabet necklace layered with Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
TeeAtmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves (similar in black or white)
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga truffle brown RH classic day bag

Why I wore it:

This is what I wore to fly down to Melbourne and to explore the city a little. It was much too warm for Brisbane, but I was thankful for the jeans in Melbourne, especially at night as it got very cold.

In the evening I had a quick change out of this grey tee into a few more layers and my Church Online tee to meet one of the ladies on the team I work with each week at church online who is in my online life group (like online bible study). I felt so bad that I got lost, got the trains all mixed up and was very late for dinner - but I made it in the end and we had a wonderful time catching up! It's so nice meeting someone in person after working together and chatting so much with them online.

TeeAtmos&Here rolled sleeve oversized tee in wine (similar in pink or in black)
Skirt: Target grey marle maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga truffle brown RH classic day bag

Why I wore it:

This was my comfortable yet cosy outfit for a day full of shopping. We started when the shops opened and then eventually were the last people to leave Tiffany in the evening when it closed. I appreciated the layers I'd packed. I took the scarf and jacket off and on through the day as the temperatures changed, but certainly needed them both in the morning and at night when we went out for dinner and dessert.

Out of all the places we visited and all the shopping we did, I have to comment on one experience in particular. If you ever find yourself in the Collins St Tiffany store in Melbourne, ask for Helen. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and we picked out some great gifts with her that I can't wait for everyone to receive!

Scarf: gifted star print pashmina
Tank: no label floral and lace top
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga truffle brown RH classic day bag

Why I wore it:

The third day in Melbourne, back in the skinny jeans I'd worn for the trip down and wearing my new scarf that was a gift bought for me the day before from the Queen Victoria markets. I'm pleased how great this scarf looked with the tank! I knew the snood I'd packed wouldn't work with it, so was hoping for a warmer day, but was thankful I had the new pashmia for the chilly morning.



I was sad to leave Melbourne behind (the shopping and the food really doesn't even compare to Brisbane!) but I was really glad to get home and see toddler T. It's the longest I'd ever been away from him since he was born and I really missed him. And Cooper too, I kept stopping to pat cute dogs over the city! I really missed my boys.


I was really happy with everything I packed - I packed just enough, wore everything at least once, and my mostly empty LV keepall became stuffed full of purchases for the flight home! I did find myself wishing I'd picked a bag with a cross body strap by the end of the second day so I'd have the chance to give my shoulder a rest, but it wasn't too bad. First time I've ever not over packed! The allure of filling up empty space in my carry on with shopping helped me make the tough decisions of what to pack and what to leave behind.


Last worn: Jeanswest leather jacket (above), floral tank, Jeanswest maternity skinny jeans (above), Converse Chucks (above), Balenciaga day bag (above). First time I've worn the star print pashmina.

Third Trimester: Maternity Denim, Green and Blue and Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC

In the third trimester my wardrobe options get limited even further, so I'm pretty much wearing nothing but maternity clothes now. A positive to this is that I have a few green pieces I've been wearing. It was previously a colour I found tricky to wear, but I'm seeing the positive side as I've been encouraged to branch out and try wearing it more often.

What I wore:

Away From Blue Blog | Third Trimester Jeanswest Maternity skinny jeans tee floral kimono

AwayFromTheBlue | Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC floral kimono
Jacket: Cotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey (on sale here!) layered with Tiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
TeeJeanswest Sonny maternity tee in lagoon marle (C/O)
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats (on sale!)
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

It was actually a cool summer day, which was a welcome change. I decided to get my maternity jeans out again. They haven't been worn as much in this pregnancy as they were last time, due to being pregnant over the different seasons. I'm enjoying my denim maternity shorts but it's been good to wear these jeans again when I can as I loved them so much last time around.

Thought I'd give the green tee a go with the navy kimono. I liked the colour combination, and the kimono was a cosy addition that came in handy for family birthday celebrations in the evening as it cooled down a little more.

As it's the second time I've worn this kimono, and I'm reviewing everything I buy after wearing it twice to see how my new purchases are working in my wardrobe, my purchase review:

This kimono was a complete impulse buy. I wouldn't have paid full price for it, but for $3 I strongly felt I should buy it! I figured even if I only wore it a few times it would be a good cost per wear. It is really quite oversized on me, but I'm loving it. It's simple to wear, it's not too hot for summer, and I love the cocoon style, even if I do sometimes worry it seems to swamp me in photos. I'm glad I bought it.


Last worn: navy floral kimono, sea glass green maternity tee, maternity skinny jeans, metallic Marc by Marc Jacobs tuxedo flatssilver mini MAC.

Other ways to wearfloral kimono and white tank, green tee and a scarf, maternity skinny jeans for a weekend trip, tuxedo flats and a maxi dresssilver mini MAC and a printed dress.









What I wore:

SingletJeanswest maternity tank in sea glass
ShortsJeanswest Georgie maternity boyfriend shorts (available in non-maternity also)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

Returning to my maternity shorts as the summer heat was back. This was a perfect outfit for a morning playdate with toddler T and some friends.

Another blue and green outfit! I'd always heard the rule 'blue and green should never be seen', which is probably why I had so little green in my wardrobe, given how much blue I have in my wardrobe! But I really liked the colour combination in this outfit. A good example of why trying different combinations is a good thing. If it doesn't work you can just take everything off again, or you could find a new combination you love.

Maternity Skinny Jeans and Printed Tops: Second Trimester SAHM Style

I'm really enjoying wearing my maternity jeans again. It's so nice having something to wear that I know I'll fit into and feel good in. In the second trimester the bump grows so quickly it can be hard to guess what to wear each day!

What I wore:

Away From Blue Blog | floral print cami jeanswest maternity skinny jeans 2nd trimester

AwayFromTheBlue | Rebecca Minkoff silver metallic mini MAC bag with black skinnies
CamiJeanswest 'Amber' floral print ruffle cami
JeansJeanswest maternity skinny jeans in black
ShoesAsos 'five star' leather sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes pink clic clac
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I tried on a few other tops before I got to this one. It's pretty, so I wanted to wear it before the bump got too big, but I was really pushing the limits of it. Although it did fit better than a few of the other tops I'd tried, it didn't feel comfortable at all and I was wishing I'd picked a different top after a few hours!

Took toddler T out to a trial class of gymboree, which is like kind of like baby gymnastics. Basically a morning of play learning new moves; bouncing, running, rolling, swinging, singing songs. It was really fun! Toddler T loved it and I wasn't too tired out by the end of it (I did wonder how I'd cope running along with him!).


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarerfloral ruffle cami, black maternity skinny jeans, Asos leather sandals, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC.

Other ways to wearfloral ruffle cami and a maxi skirt, black maternity skinny jeans in the office, Asos leather sandals and a maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC and a printed dress.

Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale with black hardware!)

Why I wore it:

Wearing my super comfortable maternity jeans again to take toddler T to playgroup. I loved everything about this outfit and wouldn't change a thing!

It was a slightly cooler day in Brisbane after a couple of wet and stormy days, so it was perfect for jeans. I am grateful for the cooler weather as it lets me wear the jeans a little longer, I know in no time at all summer will be here and I'll have ditched them for shorts. I've already bought another pair of maternity shorts in anticipation....

Jeanswest Maternity Skinny Jeans. Empire Waist Top, Louis Vuitton Neverfull | Casual Friday Paisley Kimono, Balenciaga Day Bag

Here's what I wore for a training day on Thursday:

Had a day of training on Thursday, which was a lovely break from my currently hectic work. The course was held off-site, and had a really relaxed atmosphere. I learned a lot, and I'm looking forward to putting into practice some new techniques to make my job easier.

There was no dress code provided, so I wore what I would normally wear to the office and went with a simple outfit, passing off my maternity jeans as plain pants again ;) This top has been hanging around in the back of my wardrobe a while, so brought it out as it's going to be really valuable as the bump grows. I alternate between thinking I have plenty of clothes to see me through the rest of the pregnancy, and days where I can't seem to find anything to wear that looks decent and start to panic that I'll run out of clothes. I blame pregnancy hormones!

Had to wear a little bit of pink today for Valentine's Day! Not as bold as the bright red dress I wore last year, but a nod to the day just the same. And of course, jeans for casual Friday. So grateful for Jeanswest maternity jeans!

DH and I finished work a little early today to go and check out my photo in the 'My Human Family: Rescue Dogs Find a Home' exhibition. It's been in Sydney and Canberra, and now it's in Brisbane. Out of 400 entries, the photo I took of DH and Cooper relaxing in the hammock was one of the 40 chosen to be displayed. It was so nice getting to see my photo, I've never had anything in an exhibition before so I was really excited. Worth checking out if you're in Brisbane! It's here for another week and there are so many great photos and stories.


Hope that you have a great Valentine's Day, however you are celebrating. :)

Boxing Day Sales! Jeanswest Maternity Skinny Jeans in the Second Trimester

Hope you had a lovely Christmas! Back to posting as usual, and I wanted to share some of the boxing day sales as well as a couple of things I bought in December.

We had a few cool and stormy days in December so I took the opportunity to get some more wear from my maternity skinny jeans, before the summer temperatures make jeans too hot to wear.

What I wore:


AwayFromTheBlue | Baby bump bracelet stack Rebecca Minkoff grey MAM bag
Necklace: custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette layered with Dogeared silver wishbone necklace
DressFrench Connection black paisley printed empire top (with pink Supre singlet underneath)
JeansJeanswest maternity skinny jeans in black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs two tone flats in blush and black
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey and  Hermes pink clic clac
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Had been wanting to wear this pretty printed top for a while! It looks nice without a baby bump, but I enjoyed wearing it in my last pregnancy so I wanted to get more wear from it this time around too. It was perfect with the black skinny jeans.

While these are denim, they are such a dark wash that you wouldn't be able to easily tell that they are jeans, so I wear them to the office quite a bit. A good pregnancy workwear option!

As I'm doing the fox in flats DAREcember style challenge, I wore a bit of a bracelet stack to meet the 'army candy' prompt.


Last worn: paisley print top, pink singlet, black maternity skinny jeans, two tone flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

Other ways to wear: paisley print top and a pencil skirtpink singlet and a floral dress, black maternity skinny jeans and a floral cami, cap toe flats and a maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff MAM and a leopard print dress.


Great boxing day sales:














What I wore:

Away From Blue | Metallic gold tee Jeanswest maternity skinny jeans sandals summer

AwayFromTheBlue | Silver Tiffany bracelet stack Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey
Necklace: Australian coin and crest necklace (new purchase)
Tee: Cotton On Luxe pearl tee
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesIkwetta 'Circles of life' sandals (C/O)
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Managed to do two style challenges in one! 'Red lip' for Fox in Flats DAREcember and 'sparkle and shine' for Summer Style File. After never having worn red lipstick before and only buying it as part of a challenge, I've quickly become a fan. I love this shade.

This tee was another one I'd been looking at in my wardrobe wanting to wear before the bump gets too big! It has a subtle metallic shimmer to it, a really nice piece and perfect for the challenge theme.

Despite the sunshine in the photos, it turned into quite an overcast day and with all the running around I was doing with toddler T (looking at day care centres for next year) I actually wished I'd worn a cardi a couple of times.

The necklace is new - I'd heard of the group For King & Country through Spotify, and then they did a live set at Church Online and I ended up buying the latest album. I saw this necklace while browsing their store and loved the message behind it, that women are priceless and that everyone should be treated with respect and honour.


Last worn: metallic tee, blue maternity skinny jeans, beaded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAM (above).

Other ways to wearmetallic tee and cobalt leather jacket, maternity skinny jeans and a graphic tee, beaded sandals and a blue maxi dress, grey MAM bag and print mixing outfit.


What I bought in December:

I was pretty good budget wise in December! As the baby bump gets bigger shopping for clothes is more difficult so I don't do it as often. I shopped more for Christmas presents for others. I did take advantage of the ASOS sale and pick myself up a couple of things I'd been wanting though.

Pregnancy Wardrobe Essentials - Review of Maternity Pieces in My Wardrobe

While I'm in the hospital with baby, I've set up a few scheduled posts.

As soon as I can I will be back to posting my usual daily outfits. Until then I hope you enjoy the little break and slight change of format.

First up, talking about my pregnancy wardrobe and the maternity pieces I wore through my pregnancy.


I had a total of 14 maternity pieces to supplement my existing wardrobe. I've included links below so you can see when I wore them, and how often I wore them. My goal was to buy as little maternity pieces as possible.

Tops:

Dresses:

Skirts:

Shorts:

Pants:





You can hear my thoughts and opinions by watching the video, but in summary:
  • I was lucky to have a lot of pieces in my existing wardrobe that worked well in pregnancy. Lots of flowy, loose, oversized and stretchy pieces meant I didn't need much maternity wear. I'll do a follow up post about the non-maternity items I found most helpful.
  • Maternity tops I found tricky to wear as the extra length swamped my petite frame.
  • Dresses were the easiest, most comfortable maternity wear option for me. Great go-to pieces!
  • The Asos maternity pencil skirts I bought were fantastic for work and I'd recommend them to anyone who has to dress for pregnancy in the office.
  • Jeanswest maternity denim is the only brand of maternity jeans I tried - perfect first time so I didn't try to look elsewhere.

I hope that you found this post useful, and that you can pass it along to anyone who might benefit from it :) Different from my usual posts, but I thought that laying out what I wore and how I wore it during my pregnancy might come in helpful for someone.

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.



Here's what I wore today:

Jeans:  Jeanswest maternity skinny jeans in black
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus beaded turquoise and silver bracelet stack
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine


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!


Last worn: Atmos&Here stripe teeblack maternity jeans, Havaianas (see above), Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC.

Here's what I wore on Wednesday:

Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Swing bag in canary yellow (new purchase)


Spent Wednesday running errands and picking up a few last minute things for my hospital bag, so wore a nice casual jeans outfit. After all of the grey I've been wearing the past few days, decided to wear some colour with bright accessories. Thought that the pink scarf was a nice pairing with my yellow Rebecca Minkoff bag, because of the yellow skulls. After my ebay wardrobe clear out, I treated myself to this bag. I've had it a while, but am just getting round to wearing it now as I wanted to protect the leather before I wore it with it being such a light colour.


Last worn: pink Alexander McQueen skull scarfstriped top, Jeanswest maternity skinny jeans, Havaianas. First time I've worn the bag as it's a recent purchase.



Here's what I wore today:
Monochrome Blue pregnancy outfit maxi dress denim jacket bright yellow RM bag

Away From The Blue Rebecca Minkoff canary yellow swing bag worn with denim jacket
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklacevintage gold initial necklace layered with Juicy Couture bonsai charm on a gold chain
DressJeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesAsos metallic Freestyle leather sandals
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff Swing bag in canary yellow


Had a quieter day today after running around a lot on Wednesday. Had an acupuncture appointment in the morning, which was quite relaxing. Went almost completely monochrome by wearing this gorgeous blue printed maxi dress with my denim jacket. Although the jacket covers up the beautiful lace detail on the back of the dress, it was a bit chilly so I needed a cover-up. I thought it looked okay with the yellow bag and gold sandals to break up the blue. Although I did think about wearing a blue bag and shoes for a moment! :)

Considered stopping by the shops for a browse again on my way home, but decided against it as I have a day out planned tomorrow and wanted to rest today. I think as it gets closer and closer to baby's due date, I'll be reducing my trips to the stores! I often do a lot of online shopping anyway, my favourite thing is that you can usually find a coupon code to make shopping even cheaper. I've recently been introduced to a new site, CupoNation that does all of the hard work for you and lists all the fashion coupons in one place.

Spent a lot of time on Thursday evening trying to plan my Friday outfit. We had a team event on Friday afternoon and had the option to dress up, but I decided to just wear normal bump-disguising clothes instead. It took a long time to find something!

My new Jeanswest maternity jeans arrived and are perfect in every way, so wore them and this printed cami as the flowing style hides the baby bump quite well I thought. Well, hides it better than any of my other tops could, haha. I tried on most of them!

We were supposed to have a BBQ today, but sadly had to postpone it because the rain for the past few days had drenched the back yard. There was a lot more rain today too. Ended up spending more time with my mum and sister, we took the chance to go shopping before our afternoon movie.

Wanted something nice and comfortable suitable for trying on clothes, and my new singlet works well with the black maxi skirt. I picked up a few singlets in the Jeanswest sale along with the maternity jeans :)
