Dressing for the bump

Hi everyone!!! Time is flying by and I can't believe I am 26 weeks pregnant. It feels like yesterday when I was trying to hide my bump for the traditional first 12 weeks.
  I'll be honest, I'm not a huge fan of the available maternity wear options out there. If I am being honest I have only invested in maternity jeans from Jeanswest, which I have to say are incredibly comfortable! My style strategy has been selecting garments based on the fabric. The critical element here is to ensure they shape the body in the most flattering way possible and of course offer a high level of comfort. 
Below I have styled a H&M maxi dress with a belt I got from our recent trip to Hong Kong (similar here or here). This look is not limited to maternity wear. See some similar looks I've styled below.

Happy shopping!

Dressing for Derby Day

Hello lovely people! I am now 25 weeks pregnant and feeling it, so I apologise for not sharing a post in so long.  Racing season is upon us and I am excited! There is something special about the atmosphere in Melbourne during Spring Racing Carnival. The weather is warmer, which appears to make people smile more and we are all being introduced to the very fun festive season to come.

Now as most of my followers are not pregnant I have styled some potential race looks for you.  I have started with my favourite race day of all, Derby Day. However I have broken the black and white tradition in one look for those happy to add a splash of colour. Most of the headpieces I have included are from the amazing brand Danica Erard Millinery. I love the simplicity and structure of these pieces. They seem to suit everyone.

Happy shopping lovely people! Remember to consider comfort as well as style. There is nothing less attractive than watching a lady fidget with her clothes and walk uncomfortably in their heels. We've all been there at some stage.

If you're looking for a spray tan in the comfort of your own home I recommend the mobile tanning service Sun Kissed Suse.
Also if you are interested in making your own headpieces or attending workshops be sure to visit House of Adorn. You'll be in heaven!
