Sometimes, deviating from basic black and donning a bold colour is an absolute necessity.
I chose this lovely green number for London Fashion Week but pregnancy tiredness and work kept me away this time. So, instead I wore this to celebrate an impromptu date night with the hubby.

Sometimes, playing dress up in a bold colour is the only pick-me-up you need even when you are on your 26th week 🙂
PS: People keep asking me why I am doing maternity style posts and what I will gain by putting myself like that online? Well, the reason why I am doing this is because women do tend to lose their style and confidence in pregnancy thanks to their changing bodies. I want them, yes every women who embark on this wonderful journey to remember that without them life probably would not perpetuate and to take pride and joy in themselves 🙂
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.
