Casual Weekend Maternity Wear - Third Trimester Maxi Skirts and Bright Bags

Here's what I wore on Saturday:
away from blue maternity wear stretch regular tank maxi skirt bright clutch for colour

Balenciaga mangue yellow envelope clutch
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklace:  gifted beaded statement necklace from local markets
Top: Cotton On 'eternity' tank in charcoal marle
SkirtJeanswest plain jersey black maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus beaded neon and gold and black and gold bracelet set
BagBalenciaga envelope clutch in 2012 mangue with giant 12 RGGH


Busy Saturday! We test drove another car, stopped by the in-laws and did some more baby shopping :) Wanted to be comfortable and cool with the heat. Picked my usual pregnancy default of a maxi skirt, and as I'd worn a grey tank decided to add some colour with accessories. Thought that the bright yellow clutch looked quite nice with the yellow stones in the necklace.


Last worn: Ray-ban wayfarergrey marle tank, black maxi skirt, Havaianas, Balenciaga mangue clutch.



Here's what I wore today:
Away From Blue Pregnancy adding colour with a bright bag aqua and grey Oscar's law

Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine mini MAC clutch bag balenciaga wrap bracelet
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
NecklaceHouse of Harlow 5 station necklace in black and silver
TopOscar's Law 'Break the puppy trade' tee
SkirtTarget grey marle maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine


Maxi skirt again! They really are the easiest pregnancy outfit option - especially on hot days! Added some colour to my outfit with my cute little aquamarine RM mini MAC bag.  Felt this tee was a good one to wear today with puppy farming and the sale of puppies in pet stores being in the news again recently. I don't agree with selling dogs in pet stores at all, 'adopt don't shop' is what I always say! :) We adopted Cooper from our local shelter and we are so grateful to have our furry little pup! You can sign a petition here to ask Westfield to stop pet stores selling animals in their shopping centres if you are interested.


Last worn: Ray-ban (see above), Oscar's Law teegrey marle maxi skirt, Havaianas (see above), Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC.

Linking up with Sunday Style, Monday Must-Haves, Mix It Mondays, Manic Monday, Style Sessions today.

  6. Love all of your beautiful and colourful necklaces and bracelets! I agree also not buying pets from the pet store. I sometimes see chinchillas being sold there. Stores don't know how to take good care of them and it just saddens me seeing them all copped up in a small space with light constantly blasting at them (they are nocturnal).

  14. That yellow clutch is gorgeous and perfect addition of color to your outfit. I agree that adoption is so much better. My hubby & son wants a dog but I am not ready for one just yet.

  19. WESTFIELD SELL ANIMALS?? Oh hell no.

    As I get over from the shock (can't believe I haven't seen this before, whyyyy) I just have to say that you don't hold back on your bags do you! Balenciaga and Rebecca Minkoff oh in my dreams. You lucky girl.

    If I haven't said this before (which I'm sure I have because I HEART POOCHES) your dog is so beautiful. Danni the shitzu mix from rosemaryofelephants land says Hey, Cooper.

    Hope you're having a lovely day. Rosemary x
