As I enter my third trimester, it is all about celebrating and respecting my ever-growing curves. For my birthday (which I celebrated yesterday), I wanted to feel special and glamorous after all I am going to soon embark on the exciting and challenging journey called Motherhood. I opted for a ruched dress in blue–apparently one of the hottest colours of the season.

A ruched dress is a great way to compliment your curves and it has just the right amount of glam. Surprisingly, it is also comfortable enough to walk around the entire day. I have accessorised the dress with simple gold jewellery and rose gold pumps. To be honest, I am not a clutch girl. I love big, roomy bags that can carry my world. So, here I have opted for a tan bucket bag.

Yes, there are days when I am concerned about my changing body. But, I sincerely feel that this is one of the best times and rather than fretting I keep reminding myself that I am carrying a little person inside. I don’t think pregnancy should be an excuse to forgo your style or loose your confidence because ultimately you are helping to perpetuate life on earth and surely it is more than some numbers on the scale.

As the temperature dipped, I took out my blue jacket to create a cool blue colour blocking effect. The result was surprisingly pleasing and the cherry on top of cake.

 

As I enter my 23rd week; it is finally a trip down the maternity section. My blooming curves definitely need more room and a bit of flow. A tunic style top has become my favourite–its super comfortable and can be dressed up or down. I have also added some sensible yet fun footwear to my wardrobe because let’s face it–pregnancy does things to your balance and when you are carrying a little person inside you, it is best to exercise caution.

White is my perennial favourite, this colour can never go wrong for me. A tunic is best suited with a fitting bottom. So, here I’ve paired it with skinny maternity jeggings. I have also added a long necklace for elongating my torso and a bright, magenta heels for  added oomph.
