Had a meeting with my manager today but still kept my outfit simple and comfortable - tee and pencil skirt! I wanted to recreate this entire outfit again, but decided I could make it look just a little different if I swapped out the tee ;) With the size of my wardrobe I certainly wasn't spoiled for choices for another top to wear, haha!


Last worn: brown tee, Asos tartan pencil skirt, Novo flats, Balenciaga rouille work.

Another pencil skirt and tee combo! Loved it pre-pregnancy, love it still during pregnancy. I'm lucky to have a very relaxed business casual workplace so I can wear tees to the office Monday to Thursday. That's made maternity dressing a lot easier. I think if I had to wear business professional every day I would have had to invest in some key maternity pieces like suits and work pants, which would have been trickier to find.
I thought the embroidered detail on this top worked well with the print on the skirt, but it doesn't show up well in photos. Did forget how badly this shirt wrinkles with the bump though, felt a bit sloppy by the end of the day!

    1. He will be very sad having to share our attention I'm sure! Got lots of helpful advice to make it easier on him when he becomes a big brother though! Can't wait for baby to grow up with him :)

  23. I always enjoy seeing the two outfits you create using a piece you like! That Balenciaga bag is one of my all time favorite bags; it looks so fierce in the red <3<3 The accessories, and your adorable flats really compliment both of your looks. I think your super cute puppy needs to have a special mention! XOXO, Elif
