A STRIPEY TWO PIECE







Striped top and shorts: Heavenly Bump // Shoes: New Look // Jewellery: Susan Caplan 

This is officially my first outing in maternity clothing. I thought I would freak out about it but I handled it pretty well. It's been really hard to find anything remotely like something I would normally wear- for some reason brands think that pregnant people only like frumpy clothes. I've found that unless I'm wearing something that is a little fitted I look like the size of a house- which is quite a big wardrobe transition for me as I wasn't ever really someone who wore particularly tight clothes.

This 2 piece was sent to me from Heavenly Bump and was a perfect throw on for my holiday. The positive of wearing real maternity clothes are the comfort side of things (again, comfort has never been a priority when selecting an outfit, until now.) An elasticated waistband that doesn't start to pinch as the day goes on is probably what I should be going for....

The shoes are New Look. I only realised the other day that I made it to the 6 months mark and have only worn flat shoes the entire time. How ridiculous is that! I ventured out on the weekend in heels and it wasn't as bad as I thought. I envisioned I'd come home with Kim Kardashian feet but thank goodness it didn't happen. Another of my biggest fears when I first found out that I was pregnant (yes, a superficial fear) was that my feet would be too swollen or would go up a size and I wouldn't fit any of my pretty shoes. I know I still have time for that to happen, I hope talking abut it doesn't jinx it...

PROTECT YO'SELF










Dress: Forever 21 // Boots: All Saints // Necklace: Susan Caplan // Hat: Sunshine Hats // Sunglasses: RayBan 

It's funny how things change as you get older- I've never been one to look after myself. I don't use any beauty products to preserve my skin and I've had a pretty appalling diet since I was a kid. I always say its down to genetics (my mum is super hot and healthy) and I do actually believe that but since I've been pregnant I've subconsciously been looking after myself more. 

I heard about this hat brand Sunshine Hats and heard that their hats have UPF50+ sun protection. I love a visor so was excited to find something on their website that was practical and fashionable .. and the best thing is that you can squash it into your suitcase for holiday and it will come out with no creases.  Check out their range of hats HERE.

Happy Monday!
