Maxi Dresses and Glitter Belts! Third Trimester Baby Bump Dressing

Here's what I wore for casual Friday:
balenciaga sorbet city studded sandals black french connection jersey maxi dress 3rd trimester pregnancy

Balenciaga sorbet city bag RH
Jacket: no label white drape jacket
NecklaceDogeared 3 Wishes stardust bead necklace
DressFrench Connection Meadow jersey maxi dress in black
Belt: Kmart thin gold glitter belt
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet


Took advantage of the "casual" aspect of casual Friday and wore a maxi dress to the office! This outfit is actually an idea I'd had for a while, but had saved for the third trimester when I knew I'd be finding it difficult picking what to wear to work. I really like the drape on this jacket, and thought it kept the maxi dress from looking too informal. Got a few compliments, and a few "wow your bump is huge!" comments so I consider it a good outfit, haha.

Can't believe I've only worn this jacket once before on the blog though - definitely should be wearing it more often!

Bracelets: the usual plus silver charm bracelet
BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap from Reebonz


Another maxi dress! I think my pregnancy dressing is getting even more theme based than before. If something worked one day, I want to wear something really similar the next! It does make figuring out what to wear easier :)

This is what I wore this evening, for a family birthday dinner. I wore a similar outfit during the day, without the belt and with my Louis Vuitton neverfull. We spent the day with my father in law, and test drove another car. In the evening we went out for dinner with family and friends, then had cake and champagne (of course I skipped the champagne!). Was a really nice way to end the day.

  12. Both outfits are great! Good luck finding your new car - that's one type of shopping that I do not enjoy.

    1. They are great pieces to save up for! Buy second hand though, vintage ones are much cheaper than in store :)

  14. Hello Mica, wow you are looking good! The maxi dress is a great choice for this time. The cardi with a gold belt is lovely and like how you wear beautiful bags. Hope you find a new car, shopping for one can be a challenge.

  23. Your casual Friday is soo not a casual Friday outfit in my books. Haha. You look like you could be going to a posh evening event in that maxi and glitter belt + super cute blazer. I have a dress similar in colour to your second outfit, looks lovely on you. How patient your pup is to pose for all these pics. Photogenic pooch much?

  24. You look glowing in both maxis!
