RAINBOW BABY | SECOND TRIMESTER

Well I’ve made it two thirds of the way! I’ll admit that during the first 20 weeks it felt like I wasn’t going to. Between the all day nausea and vomiting and subsequent reflux, it felt like a never ending process. But once I hit the half way mark it all started to subside… hallelujah! (Read about the first trimester here)

We’ve had lots of lovely milestones, first myself then hubby then Bebe being able to feel the Bub kick. Seeing the Bub at the 20 week scan (sucking his/her thumb). And finally the anxiety about loss has subsided.

Because I had a prominent bump so early I think it looks like my boobs are shrinking not that my belly is getting bigger LOL!

PLAY DATE TO DATE NIGHT |14 JULY

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you loved last week’s Play Date to Date Night blog, featuring the Style Me Luxe Off The Shoulder Top.

This week I’m styling the Maddie Leopard Cardigan from She Street. Incredibly soft and cozy, this stunning animal print cardigan is simply gorgeous to wear (and look at!). Don’t keep your cardigans just for day time, they can be dressed up for night too!

 

PLAY DATE:

I have worn this gorgeous Cardigan with blue denim and grey dresses, but an all over monochrome outfit is something I truly adore. Keeping the rest of the outfit simple and chic in black and white (besides of pop of colour on the lips of course!) makes this a very easy outfit to pull together.

WISH LIST WEDNESDAY | 12 JULY

Hello Lovelies!
Here is this week’s Wish List… we’re less than a month out from Bebe’s 5th birthday, which is the milestone he’s been marking as the baby coming AFTER. This means we’ve put off doing too much baby or nursery prep, which is HARD! So as his birthday draws nearer and I am able to start planning the nursery, I’ve been thinking of the style and colours I’ll be using this time. As we don’t know the gender and I am a lover of this shade anyway, grey is the theme and simplicity is the style since the nursery isn’t a big room.

9 PIECES | 9 OUTFITS [MATERNITY CAPSULE WARDROBE]

Hello Lovelies!

It has been awhile since my last 9 PIECES | 9 OUTFITS  Post (I aim to do them seasonally), being quite sick for most of this year thwarted those plans!  However the silver lining is that I have had ample opportunity to test out the pieces in the Maternity Capsule Wardrobe edition! Even though it feels like you’re pregnant for an eternity, you either don’t have the inclination or budget to spend on a vast wardrobe that you’ll only wear for 6-9 months. I’ve pulled together a mix of maternity and non-maternity pieces that will see you through your whole pregnancy and beyond. Shoes and accessories are key in a capsule wardrobe, and whilst not included in the nine pieces, I have kept them to a minimum with a high rotation to show versatility. Investing in a collection of good quality accessories will give you even more options when styling.

Firstly let me introduce you to the nine core pieces:

Wish List Wednesday | 28 JUNE

Hello Lovelies!
Here is this week’s Wish List… and it’s all about looking (and therefore feeling) fabulous as a pregnant Mama! There are so many more affordable and stylish options this pregnancy than there was five years ago when I was pregnant with Bebe, and a whole lot more inspiration available thanks to Instagram! I’m absolutely loving strong colours such as navy, black and tan paired with soft shades of blush, grey and neutral this season. Currently I have a black Ripe Maternity dress and a grey Blossom & Glow maternity dress, but I think I need to add this stunning Mamma Belle maternity dress in Navy and White stripe to my wardrobe ASAP!
