2013 Week 8: My Wednesday Style Collective.....

This is going to be so much easier doing style collective posts now that I've announced belly babe and I'm not keeping a secret. So it's going to be all about developing and evolving style again, as I try to work more vintage into my pregnancy wardrobe. With my previous pregnancies I've struggled with my vintage style, due to a variety of reasons. One being a knee jerk reaction to the grief of losing my twin girls halfway through my pregnancy, which resulted in me having next to nothing (literally and very seriously) in my wardrobe, as a result my wardrobe has been in recovery ever since.

With this being my last pregnancy this is quite possibly going to be my first chance at feeling as though I can really stay true to my vintage loving style with a growing belly. From time to time I'm also going to be able to show off some of my business and shop stock, those special vintage maternity pieces that will be available for purchase. But there's nothing better than an appropriate model, a bit of fun and showing off right?

Well at fifteen and bit weeks some items in my wardrobe are still affording me some time and space for wear, but they won't much longer. So here are two combinations this week, that may soon be relegated to the back of wardrobe until after baby's arrival. Oh and I've convinced the Ben to help with some outdoor photo taking albeit on the weekend when the kids are napping but hey I'll take it.

Dress - the sweet Nelly again at Vintage Wishes
Shoes - retail
Glasses - my back up pair.

This is one of my around home combinations this week whilst having a mummy friend visiting for a play date with the little ones.

Black Tee - op shopped
Skirt - market buy years ago in The Valley in Brisbane, from a vintage sheet.
Beads - op shopped
Wedges - op shopped

I think it's the last wear I can squeeze out of this skirt, until post baby. But onwards and upwards there's some vintage pregnancy style to get stuck into and I for one am excited about a dress that I'm just dying to wear that I recently acquired it's going to do double duty from now and through the cooler months.

The Nelly frock is just wonderful....just as well you beat me to it! I seem to be so smitten with orange lately, it is a new favourite, behind my first love green of course! The second skirt is gorgeous too. But I must say your beautiful belly is the best accessory of all. Xx

You and I are two vintage peas in a pod. Orange has been my close runner to green for years. I did beat you to this Nelly dress I was very quick to jump on this beauty.

Awww that's such a lovely compliment Sunae, it makes me smile to know I brighten your day.

All though I love my retro florals I do like the odd geometric. The glasses are a bit fab for something different once and a while even if a child sits on my head lol.
