Wardrobe Wednesday: Casual maternity style at 27 weeks

I’ve been enjoying wearing dresses this pregnancy ( see exhibits A and B for example) – perhaps I cram in all the dress wearing because I subconsciously know that that can become a bit difficult when baby arrives, vis-a-vis breastfeeding.

My other casual staple has been comfortable tops (including these) and either draw string shorts or other comfy pants. These photos are from a few days ago when the whether wasn’t quite as relentlessly hot as it’s been of late. The harem style pants are super comfy and while not designed for maternity wear sit so low on the hips that I’ve been able to still fit them up until now (but not for much longer!)

The top is a $1 op shop score made in a soft stretchy knit fabric. I really love the vibrant turquiosy/ teal colour and zip detail on the back.

I’m wearing: Top: from a local op shop $1, harem pants: Billabong, bunting necklace:from  Slyfox (it has been a little bit beaten up by my 2 year old!)

While these pants have probably seen their last wear of the pregnancy, I’ve been incredibly fortunate to receive a big bag of gorgeous maternity clothes from my friend Kate, including an awesome pair of maternity jeans that I will probably end up living in when the weather gets colder. Thanks Kate!

Here in NZ we’ve had an amazing Summer and some pretty high temperatures – although I know Australia have had it MUCH hotter. I have to admit that on some of the hotter days I’ve been finding it a bit tough. Are you pregnant at the moment? How have you been finding the weather?

Loving your maternity style! I'm 19 weeks and yet to show off "the bump" on my blog - must do it some time soon!

Far out it was hot the other weekend in CHCH. I suddenly had to strip off all my clothes and felt really dizzy and queasy. Spend the afternoon drifting in and out of a hazy sleep. So awful.

I am a few days away from 40wks and have at no stage in my pregnancy had the energy to try be stylish like you are doing. And this heat has made it hard to even sew baby clothes. But I remind myself we aren't in Australia and that it could be a whole lot worse than it is!

You look so comfortable and styley! I've been struggling this summer with not being able to wear many of my favourite dresses due to breastfeeding, so enjoy wearing them while you still can :)
