Ax Paris

Tee- thanks to Ax Paris
Pants- Zara (similar here, and here)
Heels- Zara (similar here)
Sunnies- Sportsgirl (similar here)

Whoot, whoot, I found another pair of pants in my wardrobe that I fit into!! I nearly went in search for some new jeans as I'm getting a bit bored of the two pairs that I having to live in but my husband has convinced me not to head down that path- I will get back into my old clothes, I will!  And now with these chinos in the mix that will help a bit. 

To the outfit, I started by pairing this tee with my baggy boyfriend jeans but with an oversize top you really need to keep the bottom half a little more streamlined I think so these worked a bit better, a heel really helps to balance out the look too.  Of course my trusty flats are never far away :)

Loving my new 'Moo Cow' phone thanks to TrimSkins!

A TrimSkin is similar to a sticker, except made out of a premium quality vinyl that is applied to the outside of your phone, offering 360 degree scratch protection! It's so easy to apply and can also be easily removed with no sticky residue.  With over 40 styles to choose from, there really is something for everyone.

And I must add that TrimSkins are a small Melbourne business, great to see some locals coming up with such an innovative and fabulous idea!

Necklace- thanks to Sistaco
Heels- Wittner (similar here, and here- loving these)
Sunnies- Rayban (here)

Well I've had a bit of a hiatus from outfit posts- I dropped my camera lens and evidently dropping a camera lens isn't good for it and it no longer works :/  Anyways it took me a little while to get a new one.  I will certainly be more careful this time as its a bit of an expensive mistake!!

So back with the outfit posts :)  And here I am wearing a nursing dress from Queenbee Maternity.  The top portion of the dress lifts up at the black elastic for easy and discreet breastfeeding access (see pics on the Queenbee website).  Made from a lovely soft jersey this dress is super comfy and would be so perfect when pregnant as well!  I can also see this dress serving me very well when I return to work (something that is admittedly faaaar from my mind at this time as I happily spend my days with my 4 month old son :)

With this cold Winter weather around to stay a bit longer, and Summer seeming a very long way away I thought I'd share some of my favourite boots from the Target footwear range.  For me a black ankle boot and a tan ankle boot a wardrobe staples! They work beautifully with jeans of any colour, and can be mixed up with skirts and dresses too.  The Dixie boot above has to be my pick of the lot though- I love the metal detailing on the heel and the western style cutout, plus with the low block heel you really can't go wrong.

I've just discovered Target have the most gorgeous gumboots too!  The lemon polka dot ones are adorable...if this wet weather in Melbourne keeps up I think I might be tempted ;)

Maternity Style File

Finally, I have gotten my act together and done a bit of a summary of my maternity style!!
These pics start at 17 weeks dressed in pink at the races, right through to nearly 39 weeks in the red pants.  In fact I went into labour the night after that final pic was taken.  

It was such fun dressing my bump!! A big thanks to Soon Maternity and Fillyboo Maternity for keeping me stylish throughout my pregnancy.  Now its all about looking stylish while nursing- a tad more difficult I'm finding.  All tips most welcome :)

For all the details of my outfits just click on the the 'Maternity Style File' heading at the top of the page.
