This is the beautiful maxi dress I chose from Zibibo Australia that I mentioned previously. It's the MEV Havana maxi dress and comes in black, grey, blue and purple. I had a hard time picking which one to get, thinking at first that maybe I should be practical and go for the black or grey. Since I don't have any purple maxi dresses, I settled on the 'Iris Orchid' colour. So glad I did, it is an absolutely stunning colour. One thing to mention is that the dress is sold as ankle length, but is the perfect just above the floor length for my short frame.
Figuring out how to dress a growing baby bump is a learning experience almost every day, but I like that I can just throw this dress on, know it will fit, and feel pretty. And I'm not the only one that has high praise for it! I posted this dress on instagram, and it was picked up and regrammed by Ifabbo! We had a few appointments and errands to run on Saturday, and everyone I spoke to asked me about the pregnancy, how far along I was and told me that I looked fantastic. The best feedback for this dress I think, when complete strangers take the time to tell me I'm looking good!
Like the bubble tank that I wore on Thursday, the dress is made of bamboo and cotton so it's really comfortable to wear and won't need ironing. And it's designed for nursing too. The items on Zibibo cost more than I'd usually have considered for maternity wear, but seeing how well designed they are and how long they are supposed to last, the prices make sense. Everything I received I will be wearing long after baby has arrived. Zibibo sell baby clothes too, so I'm going to have to pick up something for baby!
If you are pregnant, I hope you've enjoyed my little reviews of the maternity wear I was sent. Thank you so much to Michelle from Zibibo for kindly offering me the pieces, I know I will get a lot of wear out of them.
Last worn: lilac skinny belt, Wittner studded sandals, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag. First time I've worn the dress.

Casual shorts and tee outfit today. The denim shorts are new - I caved and bought maternity shorts to see me through the tail end of the summer heat. Glad I did, although there was a lovely breeze today it was still rather warm, couldn't have worn jeans! I've seen many bloggers wearing yellow lately too, I was inspired to pull out the only yellow top I own.
I spent a little bit of time yesterday afternoon cleaning out the rest of my wardrobe to have a clean slate for baby's room, and spent most of my time at home today continuing with that. Wanted to be comfortable as I moved stuff around. Not the heavy stuff though, DH had to help me with that! I'm getting tired out a lot easier than before, so I'm taking longer to do things. Trying to focus on small tasks and make steady progress :) Have completely dismantled my handbag wall and all of my handbags are now hiding in 3 boxes under the bed instead of being out on display. So exciting to think that soon where my bags used to be we will have lots of baby things instead!
Last worn: yellow sunnies, love changes everything tee, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine mini MAC. First time I've worn the shorts.
