You will rarely find me in a pair of jeans, simple reason, much prefer the comfort of skirts and dresses and jeans give me bumps that I would rather not entertain. However, I thought I'd give maternity jeans a try; elasticated waist for comfort and room to accomodate my growing belly. These Khaki jeans were on sale from ASOS Maternity as you will see from my previous post. They are very comfortable to wear but my only gripe would be the need to yank them up every now and then (another reason I don't wear jeans), the belly band could be higher. Saying that, since wearing these jeans many folks have commented how slim they make me look, er that's kinda nice so I can live with the odd yank every now and then.
I love the detail on the rim and the shape of the frame
Rolling fields at the bottom of my street, perfect for a bike ride
Horse aptly named 'greedy guts', he wolfs down our bag of carrots
I approve mum!
This morning, I was delighted to find a wee parcel with my name on it from Vision Direct containing a rather gorgeous pair of Marc Jacobs sunnies! The card inside read simply 'Happy Mother's Day Sleekit'; what a perfect way to start the day.
Melbourne is basking in the most unexpected hot weather and we took advantage by enjoying a bike ride and feeding the local horses at the bottom of our street with a trip to the park along the way.
Mother's Day is a very special day in the calendar and 'should' be celebrated. Being a mum is the most rewarding but hardest job you will ever encounter. Yesterday, I was treated to a Mother's Day presentation at my son's kinder which left me feeling very loved and emotional, he is growing up so fast and shaping into a very loving and caring young man. With another child on the way, I feel very privileged to be blessed and look forward to seeing my children flourish with a little help from 'maw' and 'paw'.
Have you bought your mum a Mother's Day gift yet? If not, why not treat her to pair of really cool sunnies. Designer sunglasses are a luxury that your mum probably feels guilty about indulging in, she would normally buy a pair of $5 shades from the chemist and toss them in her bag BUT being a mum you are out about, parks, beach, walks and having a little luxury makes you feel good!
You can check out their fabulous facebook page for great deals on sunglasses and you will be surprised how affordable they are.
To all the mum's out there and my mum (6 kids under her belt!), Happy Mother's Day, hope you get spoiled!
A few more additions to my Maternity wardrobe, Boots from Zomp and the rest from ASOS Maternity. The boots (instantly gravitated towards the colour) I picked up on sale for $55, reduced from $230 and the ASOS stuff was about $80 for the lot, pretty darn good huh?
Look forward to putting these together for an outfit post soon!
Been a while since I posted, caught up with house stuff, mostly re-decorating our new home. My urge to nest has kicked in early. I even borrowed a sewing machine and made these curtains, (yes, the hem is still trailing the ground but I will get round to sorting that!). What can I say, I've moved to the burbs and I'm feeling thrify. Also, found my tripod and give you the first photo shoot in my new home.
I've also just passed the 20 week mark of my pregnancy and starting to fell like myself again, hooray. The wardrobe may be getting smaller but I can still squeeze into a few old favourites.
Have a great weekend folks and catch you next week, bought some new maternity wear to share and also expecting a little Mother's Day surprise in the post.
It's Autumn in Melbourne, my favourite season. The sun still shines but it can get a wee bit chilly, especially in the mornings. Recently, I had thought about investing in a new winter coat, it's been 4 n bit years since I bought my last. With a protruding belly, your options can be limited so probably best for me to wait until next year.
However, the other day I found myself at an Op Shop in Seaford, came across this (looks like it's never been worn) Australian brand Marcs trench coat. I snapped it up with the $20 price tag, wow, what a find! Upon paying for my fabulous purchase, I spotted a pair of cream leather gloves nestled in the glass cabinet case at the counter, $10! No need for a new winter coat, I'm sorted for the bargain price of $30.
Accessories make up a large chunk of my wardrobe, I'm always on the look-out for statement pieces. For bargain accessories, it has to be Sportsgirl. This necklace and earrings set cost me a combined total of $5.50! Love the necklace, it looks so much more and perfect to update my autumnal closet.
I also treated myself to some new specs, after losing my old pair in the move. Picked up these two pairs from Specsavers for $149, bargain and they will go with any outfit in my wardrobe.
My wardrobe will get smaller as I get bigger and accessories will help to create many different looks.
