I started Wear Is It From in August 2011, before blogging was as huge as it is now. I posted 3 times a week for years but didn't show my face for so long as I didn't want the blog to be about me, I wanted it to be about the clothes. I genuinely started the blog as I would often wear clothes of my Grandmas and ask her of images of when she previously wore them. She didn't have any photos so I thought it would be lovely for my future kids to be able to see what I wore and how I wore it. And now that 'future kid' actually exists in this world so it's now time to move this blog on. I've boxed up loads of clothes that I don't wear anymore but will love to pass on to my daughter when she fits them (which means keeping these boxes for about 13 years!!) I've recently launched so please head over there to keep up to date on all things fashion, beauty and baby, and follow me @GemmaRoseBreger to keep in the loop. Thank you so much for always checking in on this and for all the lovely feedback over the years.
Gemma xoxo

I treated myself yesterday to some nice undies. I realised that now my wee babe is almost 7 months old so I've been wearing maternity bras for 7 months. Sexy huh? Mainly for practicality over comfort but they are just so comfy. And black. So they don't look too horrendous. Ok now I've convinced myself that maternity bras are sexy. Uh oh, I think it's about time I moved on. 

The past month has been consumed as always with Belle. I keep saying I'm going to blog more often but who am I kidding - once a month is as good as it's going to get at the moment I guess.  I feel more like myself now but I'm surprised it's taken so long. I used to think that as long as I can fit back into my skinny leather trousers I would feel normal, but when I managed to get back into them a few months ago I still didn't feel myself. It turns out shopping malls are the best place to go with babies, in particular Westfield which has numerous hiding places to get my boobs out, brilliant baby changing rooms and if you go from the car park and do a loop of all the favourite shops then the baby can have a good 2 hour nap which is wonderful! But whilst on these shopping trips I would find that nothing looked or felt good. I don't know what it is - body shape changing, grease-ball hair, dry skin blah blah blah moan moan moan. But when I hit that 6 month mark I started to feel more myself - although I wish I didn't get my hair cut as I think mermaid hair would have made me feel much better. 

I've never been into make up but while my Instagram obsession grows (seriously, what did our parents do while they were breastfeeding- I don't know what I would do without Instagram!) I keep finding these girls who are unreal at doing make up. Take a look at some of HudaBeauty's videos, all this contour malarkey is like art. It's not my style but I find it fascinating to watch. 

Things I'm loving this month:

1. Total Divas on E! Don't judge me, I get such joy from watching utter rubbish on TV when I get a spare half hour.

2. Stalking all the New York Fashion Week pics. I'm escaping from motherhood over the next few days to get in some London Fashion Week shows and I'm excited.

3. I taught little Belle how to drink from a sippy cup and I'm kinda proud of myself.

Happy Friday and have a lovely weekend!

Hello! Happy 2016. How the heck is it January 11th in 2016???

I've been laying low and really enjoying spending time with my babe. I've learnt a lot about myself in the process and I've worked out what is important to me and what I need to let go of as it's just not worth my energy. Let's just focus on the positives because no one needs to hear me moan today!

1. I can survive on a very very very little amount of sleep and still be a fairly nice person.
2. I can feed my baby with my boobs (how does this even happen???)
3. I, along with my superhero husband, have been responsible for keeping a tiny human being alive and we've done a fairly good job of it if I may say so myself.
4. My house is tidy, I get dressed each morning and I have at least 10 minutes of fresh air a day. These things might not be important to some people but to me, not being able to do these things was something that I had a fear about before I had the baby so to be able to do them makes me feel really good.

Ok enough baby chit chat (it's very consuming isn't it!) Here is what I wore to a wedding recently. The requiremements for an outfit these days are pretty steep - black so you can't see when my boobs leak (sexy!) Easy access so I can express half way through the day and high waisted so that odd line that appeared on my stomach during pregnancy is covered up. I loved this 2 piece from Lavish Alice. I added this silver drop lariat necklace from the new collection by Susan Caplan and my favourite Charlotte Olympia heels.

Do I win an award for being the whitest person in all of the land??
