Maternity Fashion - trying to stay colourful and comfy!

I'm nearly 30 weeks now... Yikes!! That seems really close to the end, but when I think that I went to 42 weeks with Ethan, it still seems like I've got ages to go.  I'm still really feeling the benefits of my compression tights but beyond that, finding something to be comfortable and feel stylish in every day is hard going.  I've got to be honest, I'm becoming more glad of the days where I don't have to leave the house.. which is probably only one day a week.. on those days I just pop on some leggings/vest tops/a cardi and I'm happy enough.

I remember the last few weeks of my pregnancy with Ethan. It was June/July and whilst not an amazing summer, it was reasonably warm.  I spent a great deal of time in the garden beached in a paddling pool.. I can't see that happening this time!! Firstly, baby is due in May so we *probably* won't have experienced too much warm weather by then (the last few days we've still had frost in the mornings!!) and secondly, due to life being busier with Ethan and blogging etc I can't see me having the time to lounge in a paddling pool!  You never know though, I suppose!

Not having much to talk about fashion/style wise this week, I'll leave you with the basics.  By which I mean photos.  Here are a few outfits from the last week:

Stripe vest - Asda Maternity
Purple Maternity Leggings - eBay
Black dress (under stripy top) - Therapy (not maternity)

Stripe top - GAP (not maternity)
Scarf - Orla Kiely for Uniqlo

Beret - H&M
Scarf - Small local boutique
Strip dress - ASOS Maternity
Cardigan - New Look
Maxi dress - New Look
Cropped cardigan - Room31

Looking back over the week, I feel I've warn a variety of outfits, even if I don't have as wide a selection of clothing to choose from at the moment!

  1. Such a great variety of combos, Alex! Lack of options breeds creativity, and you've put together some really cute looks. I'm taking maternity style notes over here, ya know! :) What are compression tights? I'm interested. Hope you're feeling well!!! ~Sarah

    1. Thank you Sarah!

      You're right, a lack of options is forcing me to be creative, when I have the energy!

      The compression tights are fantastic, they are really helping surpress the varicose vein that's appeared on the back of my left leg. They are also easing the aches and pains in my legs - I wrote about them in a blog post in more detail so you could always check that out :)


  2. Wow your are a gorgeous looking pregnant, I look like a beach whale at 24 weeks, joy of being plus sizer before I guess. I am literally wearing the same clothes every day I am sure of it xxx


Thank you for leaving me a comment! I appreciate every one!
