In our very gritty neighbourhood, these snaps were taken before we headed out to the rustic Collingwood Childrens Farm. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, it’s not easy taking photographs of the kids hence the kit kat in her little hands. Unnoticeable in the midsts of that red rah rah spotty skirt don’t you think!
It was warmer than usual today so no coat required. Rather, I opted to throw over an oversized vintage vest over my babe. As for me, I’m desperately trying to grow my disgusting hair out so decided to accessorise my outfit with this bling a ching beanie recently scored from Asos. Nothing I’m wearing today is maternity wear and I’ve only managed to fit into my pants thanks to belt extenders I purchased a while back.
Hope you love these photos and thanks for dropping by the blog.
It doesn’t seem quite fair owning a vintage boutique and not being able to wear any of the clothing with my bump in tow. I love all the pieces especially the jumpsuits! Who else is on board with jumpsuits?
There’s a sweet collection on Mode Madison that is yet to appear and well I thought I could be a little cheeky and squeeze into one for my 5 year wedding anniversary. It just fit! I love it so much and pleased to say that you can have it in your hot little hands in the near future.
I’m wearing: ‘Spot me’ jumpsuit from Mode Madison || Boots by Asos || Scarf Djcuba || Chocker by Oroton || Necklace by Tiffany & Co.
I love this red vintage suit and when my girl Vinniece generously sent me this leopard print top, I knew it would be a match made.Lucky for me and I say lucky because I was about 3months along, everything fit perfectly. Just.
Accessorised with a birdcage veil to complete the look, I felt ready to paint the town red.
Hope you love the look.

Celebrity or not, I love seeing photographs of proud pregnant women.
I’m completely aware that everyone feels differently about pregnancy depending on their personal circumstances however I express mine, based on a positive experience.
When I fell pregnant with my first in 2011, I wasn’t sure how I was going to look and feel. When my shape started to changed, there were honestly days where I didn’t know what to wear but I embraced it with flowy pieces and then fitted pieces as the bump started getting bigger. I mean, there was absolutely no way I wasn’t going to show that bump off. Sure I had a few weird body changes due to all the hormones although I remember being absolutely in love with my new pregnancy body. During the process I had gained 23kgs (couldn’t believe it!) and worked up until I was 37.5weeks pregnant. Lucky for the little one, she was due right on her scheduled date at 40weeks.
For a little style inspo, here’s hot Miss Xtina herself with my suggested links to get her look.

I purchased this maxi boxed dress a few years ago in my early pregnancy days. I thought it would be a good fit for when I got bigger and heavier. The thing is, I was one of of those huge pregnant women and unfortunately the dress didn’t flatter the bump.
The dress however is amazing, and creatively designed. Because it is so baggy, you can adjust the waistline by wrapping the dress around your figure and then adding in a belt to fasten the fabric. The overlapping of fabric adds texture and creates an origami look which I also love doing with my oversized tops. What’s also cool about this maxi is you can adjust the length of the dress with a simple cut as there are no stitches in the hem. So perfect for a short arse like myself.
It did take me almost 3 years to wear but here it is, so I hope you love the look.
Just as I did this week with my floral dresses, I often wear my Metalicus tank dress underneath most sheer items. It is also versatile enough to wear pre, during and post pregnancy. The quality of this dress is fantastic too.
I am sharing with you an old photo of me in the tank dress at 27 weeks pregnant. I have on 2 layers (the black and grey tank dress) for more coverage.
They still stock these and since I love them so much I thought I should share.
I also wore this outfit whilst I was pregnant. The wonderful thing about Metalicus clothing is that its great quality, inexpensive and stretches with you, allowing you to wear it pre, during and post pregnancy, so you can get maximum wear out of it.
I have included a pic of me in this dress during pregnancy. x
