Balenciaga Tempete Day Bag, Jeanswest Maternity Denim Shorts and Singlets

While baby has arrived, I've got a few more pregnancy outfits scheduled to share on the blog, as I enjoy the newborn cuddles and try to avoid going out too often as we adjust to life with two under 2!


Two casual denim shorts outfits with my Balenciaga tempete day bag. Hard to believe it's almost 7 years old! This is why I like to splurge on accessories. They last a long time and unlike clothes, always fit - even during pregnancy.

What I wore:

Away From Blue | Summer Shorts Third Trimester Maternity Tank outfit printed kimono Bal day bag

AwayFromTheBlue | Balenciaga pearly grey wrap bracelet Balenciaga tempete day bag
JacketSomedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono (on sale!)
Necklace: Lovisa silver love knitted heart pendant necklace
SingletJeanswest maternity tank in sea glass
ShortsJeanswest Georgie maternity boyfriend shorts (available in non-maternity also)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus turquoise and silver beaded bracelet set, Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

When I was trying to think of different outfit combinations with my limited third trimester capsule wardrobe, I was having a look back through past blog photos and was surprised I hadn't worn this tank and kimono together before! I really like the pairing, glad I gave it a go.

Wore this for a day out in Brisbane with my mum and toddler T, we went to the baby and toddler expo and got a lot of great things. In the evening, we had dinner at the in-laws. I'd usually change and try get a little dressed up for dinner, but felt happy and comfortable in this so just wore the same thing in the evening.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Somedays Lovin' kimono, green maternity tank, boyfriend denim shorts, HavaianasBalenciaga tempte day bag.

Other ways to wear: printed kimono and a maxi skirt, green maternity tank with gold accessories, boyfriend denim shorts and a novelty pregnancy teeBalenciaga tempte day bag and a blue dress.

ShortsJeanswest maternity rolled up shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus silver and turquoise bangle set
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

This is an outfit combination I've worn before, the singlet and shorts together. Different accessories this time though, to try change it up just a little. It was another hot and humid day - despite it being autumn Brisbane hasn't turned down the summer temperatures yet! Just wanted something simple and easy for taking toddler T to playgroup.

Really liked the monochrome look of this outfit with the blue Balenciaga bag and the blue singlet and shorts.


Last worn: printed maternity singlet, maternity bermuda denim shorts, Havaianas (above), Balenciaga temptete day bag (above).

Other ways to wear: blue printed singlet and a red bag, bermuda denim shorts and a striped tank, blue Balenciaga day bag with pink and purple.

  2. First off, congrats on the arrival of your newest family member. Two under two is intense but they will grow to be super friends. Secondly, WOW! I did not look like this in my third trimester. I remember feeling exhausted with my wardrobe and wearing a lot of oversized t-shirts from my husbands closet. You look adorable and stylish!

    1. Thanks, I think having a capsule wardrobe helped with getting dressed everyday! :) Sadly none of hubby's shirts would fit me anyway, ha!
      They will definitely be the best of friends I'm sure :)

  3. I just love the color of that bag! And it's so true, bags (and sometimes shoes) are always a great investment because of their longevity!

    Your pegnancy style has been impeccable, especially taking into account that your third trimester was in the middle of summertime. Quite a challenge! But you always nailed it to perfection.

  18. I love how you've made all your outfits look fresh even though you're using a lot of the same pieces--pregnancy sure forces you to be a good remixer. I think you've totally nailed it though!

  27. Two under 2! Ah! I can't imagine! Unfortunately Penelope figured out how to climb out of her crib this week.... soooo the weekend will be training her to toddler bed sleep. I love the light blue bag. It screams spring! (:

    1. Oh good luck with that! We are wondering when to transition toddler T as a few times he's attempted to climb out. But dealing with a newborn is not the best time, ha!

  28. Phew, 2 under 2, I take my hat off to you! I particularly love your first outfit, that kimono is so pretty and really sets off the colour of your tank. You're so right about investing in accessories, except I don't trust my taste just yet so I'm waiting until I find a sense of style somewhere (still looking...)

    1. I think you have great taste! Always worth waiting and saving up for that one piece you're really sure of though :)

  32. Congratulations! It’s good you have a few more outfits scheduled so you can have some time off with your new one. Love the Yakuza kimono. Perfect for the weather we’re having now - though I think it’s probably a bit hotter where you are haha.
