A slight departure and tangent for this weeks style post. I was out and about on Saturday morning running some errands with the family in tow. We're crazy like that sometimes, where we all want to be together doing the most mundane everyday stuff together, when one person doing it would more than suffice. So we all piled into the car and got things done.
Whilst we were out I copped a full body length side-on view of myself in a shop window (we don't own a full length mirror at home). I was wearing this outfit, not much shred of vintage going on but comfortable.
Dress - hand me down
Turtle Neck - hand me down
Leggings - cheap retail buy
Belt - op shopped
Crocheted Hat - op shopped
Brooch - made by from an op shopped puzzle piece
Ballet Flats - cheap retail
Anyway I was struck by the view of myself and realised no wonder I've been having quite a few more frustrated what the hell am I going to wear moments happening. Seriously look at me, this tum could seriously start knocking people out. I'm the heaviest I've been with any of my pregnancies and we've still got a several serious baby gaining weeks ahead. I feel it nearly necessary to send out a fashion S.O.S, as this is where style could start going out the window in an effort to keep warm and comfortable.
The thinking cap is seriously going to need to be tied on to get me through this quandary without a mass purchase op shop, retail or otherwise to get me through to August. Then there is the issue of my thoughts turning to preparing my wardrobe for the life of vintage loving mumma who will be breastfeeding around the clock. I'm on the very serious hunt for more vintage high waisted maxi skirts, blouses and dresses that accommodate the need to get a boob out regularly.
I do have a few new to me frocks lined up for style collective posts that I'm saving as long as I can still get into them. One of which is particularly lovely and I'm saving for the Bloggers Baby Shower this weekend.
