Black, red and trusty wardrobe friends

 dress: ASOS Maternity
boots: Zomp
sunglasses: Vision Direct
bangle: Diva
pom pom: Little Salon
There are some trusty combo's that work every time, in this case black and red. I don't wear a lot of black but when I do I like to pop a bright colour against it. The dress, I purchased from ASOS Maternity is becoming a trusty friend, cosy, practical and stylish. 
My bump is growing, I'm almost passed the "Is she pregnant or just been eating too many pies?" The latter may be true, have the appetite of a Rhino but it's nice when people start to notice that you are indeed growing a baby. 
My other trusty friend is the sunglasses that Vision Direct sent me for Mother's Day, they are becoming my perfect companion, yeah to trusty wardrobe friends, do you have one? Do tell....

Me in skinny jeans!

jeans: ASOS Maternity
top: ASOS Maternity
boots: Zomp
necklace: Frankideas
square ring: Studio Leanne
geo ring: Corky

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.

Happy Mother's Day Sleekit from Vision Direct

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!
Thank you Vision Direct for spoiling me.

A few more additions to my Maternity wardrobe

orange swede boots from Zomp
 Khaki skinny jeans
 A stripey Tee, of course!
 elastic waistband for growing belly
loved the colour of this tee

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!

Khaki and camo | Daily outfit

dress: Ben Sherman
scarf: Sportsgirl
tights: Sportsgirl
leather jacket: Gorman
shoes: Topshop

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.
