Maxi Skirts and Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Neverfull. Sunglasses Giveaway!

Being in the second trimester in the heat of summer has meant that I'm reaching for my shorts more than I did when I was pregnant with baby T and favoured max skirts more. I still love a great maxi skirt outfit though! Two of my recent ones below with my Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag, as well as a giveaway!

What I wore:

AwayFromBlue | Fun pregnancy ninja baby skeleton tee maxi skirt LV neverfull

AwayFromTheBlue | Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull striped maxi skirt
Tee: 'Ninja baby' maternity skeleton tee
SkirtAT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt
ShoesAsos 'five star' leather sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus old blue beaded bracelets
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

The return of the ninja baby tee! Definitely the most fun piece to wear in pregnancy, I enjoyed wearing my ninja baby tee last time and it's good getting to wear it again in this pregnancy. It just sets your day up right when you end up making a random couple of little old ladies giggle before you even get to the office.

Wore this out to a Christmas picnic party with my colleagues. The dress code for the day was casual as we all had been given the afternoon off for the party, and our kids were invited along too. Toddler T had a blast chasing the ibis and ignoring all the entertainment that had been put together, ha!

I picked the navy striped maxi skirt to wear with the tee, and some blue accessories, as the style challenge for the day was 'in the navy'. I was glad I picked the skirt and not jeans as it really warmed up through the day.


Last worn: ninja baby tee, striped maxi skirt, Asos leather sandals, Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

Other ways to wear: ninja baby tee and skinny jeansstriped maxi skirt and a cosy knit, Asos leather sandals and skinny jeans, Louis Vuitton damier azur Neverfull in the office.


Pretty maxi skirts under $50:






What I wore:

Away From The Blue | Summer Pregnancy Outfit Maternity tank maxi skirt printed kimono LV neverfull

AwayFromTheBlue | Printed kimono, Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull medium on shoulder
JacketSomedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey (on sale here!) layered with Tiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
TankJeanswest maternity tank in white
Skirt:  Jeanswest plain jersey black maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted turquoise and silver beaded bracelet set
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

I had to do the dreaded pregnancy glucose test on this day and the lovely lady had advised me when I booked in to bring a cardigan along as the aircon in the waiting room was quite cold. I figured the kimono would keep the chill off me enough.

I've mentioned before that I'm sometimes unsure if a kimono and maxi skirt together works, but I've been warming to the look lately and I love this kimono so much as it looks good with everything! The white tank was perfect for the 'white haute' style challenge theme for the day too.

After the unpleasant morning drinking glucose and having multiple samples of blood taken, we had a restful afternoon and then we went out that evening to see the local Christmas lights displays. We tried a new street that we hadn't visited before and it was wonderful, they had even set up a snow machine so toddler T got to experience 'snow'.


Last worn: Somedays Lovin' kimono, white maternity tank, jersey maxi skirt, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Neverfull (above).

Other ways to wearSomedays Lovin' kimono and denim shorts, white maternity tank and stripes,  black maxi skirt in winter, Louis Vuitton Neverfull and skinny jeans.





I shared on twitter recently that I was kind enough to receive a pair of Sundried 'Aire Blue' sunglasses. They are great sunglasses, sturdy plastic and the lenses offer good sun protection, but since I almost always wear my polarised Raybans, thought I'd run a little giveaway for these.

Giveaway is open internationally and will run for one week! You can enter via the rafflecopter form above. This is a game of skill.

    And I love the kimono with the other maxi skirt. I know what you mean though. But you've got the right length of kimono. Longer and the proportions would be off kilter but this looks easy to wear and stylish. Hope the test went well.
