OOTD – while the due date approaches,… it has been a tough few days. I’ve been having some anxiety. Bad dreams. But pushing through.
I’m dressing like Phoebe from the 90s. Vintage patterned dress, oversized cardigan and knee high socks. Black silky top with bold silver statement necklace from Shannon Passero. Throw on a muppet-inspired navy faux fur coat from Zara for the eve of legalization party at The Drake. Spend a cozy day in a classic sweater dress in camel and navy stripes.
Still rolling along with little one on slow cook. Fall temperatures have brought some relief, but Summer seems to be making a comeback with some warm and sunny weather. This far along, dresses are my best friend.
Lots of dresses in my life, from top left, Anthropologie navy with white dots, Winners red and black mod flowers, psychedelic silky tunic from a clothing swap, and an oversized black and white spotted Zara dress shirt with peplum. All worn with some variation of black leggings and boots or jeans and boots. Never skip a chance to wear your res lipstick (if you’re into that sort of thing).
Clockwise from top left:
H&M tunic with tassels, bright lip and hoop earrings – over maternity jeans.
Zara rust coloured XL dress with ankle boots and chunky necklace.
Maternity tank with cutoff denim button up and gunmetal necklace, quirky bracelet found at a market and striped maxi skirt (Grey).
60s-inspired polkadot Zara dress with a vintage necklace from my mother, over black Nulu leggings with black ankle boots and a red lip, with topknot.
Coming to the end of 34 weeks! Keep your fingers crossed.
One of my favourite ways to beef up my wardrobe is via clothing swaps. Get together a crew of your fave friends and bring the things you no longer wear. This top is great during pregnancy, and was a cast off from one of my coworkers!
What is Super Mario’s favourite fabric?
Denim, denim, denim.
Sing it to the Nintendo tune. It’s a terrible joke, but it pops Into my head every time I think about wearing this gorgeous denim trench. The Canadian tuxedo, denim on denim, is the quintessential Canuck fashion choice. Pair a trench with great boots from Clarks (complete with orthotics), some basics and a cool attitude and it’s an outfit that works as well with a belly as without.
Purposefully did no touching up on these photos. We all need a bit more realness, right?
Also, I’m not super keen on matching my shoes to my handbag. obvs. All my fashion choices are practical – Can I walk in these shoes? Am I warm enough? If I get too hot, can I take some of this off? Can I sit and eat a massive meal in these, as baby kicks me in the guts, and still feel comfortable? If yes, proceed.
Cheers to you and hoping for many blue skies ahead.
Luckily the dusters and kimono layers I so love are a perfect fit for summer and baby.
Don’t forget shoes that let your feet breathe and items that don’t dig in. If you haven’t tried wrap around pants that tie at the waist … do it!
Inspired my my stylish friend, Leah, this is a simple and versatile pairing. Stripes as the base layer. Animal print flats. To dress it up, add a sleeveless blazer. To keep it casual, a sleeveless denim layer or no layer at all. Bright jewellery and … voila.
