Voi Style

Heels- Tony Bianco (similar here and here)
Tank- Witchery 

Yep, my belly is freaking huge and yep, I am indeed ready to drop any day now!! Baby is in position all ready to go. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :)  Stay tuned on Instagram and Facebook for the big announcement!!

Now to my outfit.
This jacket is now officially the most precious and loved piece in my wardrobe, its Versace from Voi Exculsive Designer Outlet based in Castlereagh St in soon- hooray!  I love the clean lines, classic shape and beautiful gold button detailing of this jacket- such an amazing classic designer piece.  Although I've squeezed it on today, I simply can not wait to wear it post pregnancy- I'm thinking leather skinnies, white tee and leopard print heels for starters.  Its certainly a piece I think you'll see on me often here on the bloggity.

Voi get new stock in every week from brands including Fendi, D&G, Gucci, Prada, Miu Miu, Bvlgari among others, all at heavily discounted prices.  I can't wait to have a look next time I'm in Sydney.

This long sleeve dress from Soon Maternity is so perfect for Autumn/Winter, today I've paired it with bare legs and my new black ankle boots but add some black opaque stockings and a nice warm coat and you are set for the coldest of days!

Heels- Tony Bianco (similar here and here)
Necklace- thanks to Sistaco

I know I keep banging on about pregnant lady wardrobe staples, but when you are a peculiar shape for a only a short amount of time you don't want to be splashing your cash on pieces that you will only wear once.  So here I go again with another wardrobe staple for you- black pants and a black knit!  Both pieces I know I will continue to wear post pregnancy.

These pants are actually the capri style but because I'm a shorty they finish perfectly at my ankle which I love (you can see the straight leg version on me HERE).  This boxy knit is such a beautiful fine knit and is also available in red- I changed my mind about which colour 17 times before deciding on the black.

And of course I couldn't go without a mention to this beautiful statement necklace! Sistaco have an amazing range of unique, glamourous, yet affordable jewellery and this necklace is one such piece.  I love the mix of colours.  Love this? Be sure to stay tuned because I have a giveaway just around the corner!!

38 weeks and still here- hoping bub arrives a bit early...maybe this week (fingers crossed!!)
Not because I want bub out but because I just can't wait to meet him/her :)

Swarovski Tropical Paradise- WIN

Ring- Swarovski
Tee- Country Road (similar)  
Sneakers- Nike (similar

Swarovski's Tropical Paradise collection has just hit stores and features this beautiful three dimensional crystal beetle- so beautifully sparkling and colourful!!  I was actually hoping to do a bit of a tropical paradise theme for this blog post, but being in Melbourne, in Autumn, and with my limited wardrobe at the moment it didn't come together- however I'd thought I let the beetle be the standout with this simple grey and black outfit.

This skirt is from Soon Maternity, fitted to the knee in a lovely textured fabric this skirt is a really great basic piece that can take you beyond pregnancy.  The sneakers are another new addition, I thought I needed some pretty kicks to see me through my days pushing a pram around AND they match my beetle's wings perfectly : )


On another note you have the chance to WIN one of these stunning pendant's for yourself!!
Just fill out the form below- easy peasy.
(Competition closes at midnight, 18 March 2013)

Brunch at Sea Circus

Heels- Tony Bianco (similar here and here)
Necklace- Diva (similar)
Sunglasses- Rayban

This gorgeous print maxi is also from Vamastyle's latest collection.  And once again, no it's not a maternity dress and yes I know I am barely fitting into it, BUT how fabulous is this print AND that side split! Plus it's such a gorgeous light floaty silk I couldn't resist.  Plus there is pockets! I love pockets in a dress.  Another dress I'll be hanging to wear next Summer when I haven't got a ginormous belly : )

These pics were taken a month ago at Hamilton Island- loving that tropical foliage!

You can see last time I wore Vamastyle HERE.

Celina 3/4

Heels- Tony Bianco (similar here and here)
Sunnies- Sportsgirl

Last week I was lucky enough to view Soon Maternity's Autumn/Winter range which has just landed on their website, and even luckier to get a few pieces for myself to show you guys.  The Celina tank seen HERE, has been THE wardrobe staple of my wardrobe at the moment. I wear it constantly and find it so easy to change its look so I was excited to see that this very same dress came in a sleeved version.

At 8.5 months preggers, I'm feeling, and looking, positively huge  : /
Hopefully I'll get to show you all the looks before bub arrives!!

Honey Honey

Realove heels- Steve Madden (similar here and here)

Pregnant ladies need to party too, and this cocktail dress by Fillyboo Maternity is such a fun option for any special occasion.  The big sequins pick up on whatever colour is around so I thought this coral clutch the same colour as my painted toes was the perfect pop of colour, while keeping the heels neutral to lengthen those legs.

Come to think of it, this could be a fun dress pregnant or not : )

Chic Maker

DIY jewellery kit- thanks to Chic Maker
Bracelet- made by me!

Who doesn't love a bit of DIY, but admittedly whenever I have spotted an amazing DIY project on a blog, pinterest or in a magazine, I say I love it, say I'll make it....but then it all gets a bit hard when I consider how long I might need to traipse around Bunnings, Spotlight and Lincraft to find the supplies I need.  This is where Chic Maker comes in- its an absolutely genius concept that provides all materials and instructions in a compact little kit.  When I received mine in the post, I literally sat down that evening and made it on the spot- I couldn't resist!

Chic Maker have a different jewellery project every month.

Necklace- Sussan 
Heels- Steve Madden (similar)
Sunnies- Rayban (here)

I think this dress is one of my favourite items in my maternity wardrobe.  I love that is covers up the bits of me that I'm not that keen on at the moment, i.e. upper arms and legs, yet still shows off my favourite bit- my lovely round baby bump!  Made from a beautiful comfy jersey fabric, not too long and the most perfect mint colour.

36 weeks today!
4 weeks to go- eep!!!!
3 weeks of work left- yay  : D

Arabella dress- thanks to Vamastyle
Cuff & earrings- thanks to OohLaLa
Heels- Witchery (similar)

Well this dress isn't a maternity dress, but I have squeezed my basketball belly in regardless.  This dress is from Vamastyle's latest amazing collection!  I adore the floaty sleeves, gorgeous light silk fabric and bright Summery print and simply cannot wait to wear this when I get my post pregnancy bod back : )  The new collection goes on this month, but you have a sneak peak at the entire collection at Vamastyle's Facebook page.

These pics were snapped just a few steps from the door of our accommodation in Hamilton Island where we had our babymoon a couple of weeks ago.  There sure is something about kaftans and palm trees that invokes that holiday vibe!
