2013 Week 24: My Wednesday Style Collective.....

 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.

Was never a boob/cleavage wearer, but funny how breastfeeding changes that. Now every outfit is chosen on the ease of getting my boob out. Even though Jarvis only has three feeds a day now, I still want them within ease of reach.

Now you know why I was giving you funny looks on Friday when you said you'd started thinking of post-baby wear. "Really?" I was thinking. "Does she not realise her tummy is getting bigger everyday?" haha. I will keep my eye out for breast-feeding friendly clothes in my rounds of the op shops down south. You really do always seem so put-together in your outfit posts, it makes looking good while pregnant seem like a piece of cake! xx

Your bump is amazing! It must be frustrating trying to dress around it, particularly with the cooler weather. I hope you have a super special time at the baby shower, I can't wait to see what you end up wearing. Xx

Yep you get me lovey, every outfit is about how can I get my boob out lol.

Such lovely words my sweet. I like to make an effort it makes me feel good.

Thank you.
The biggest frustration is not fitting into some vintage pieces and not feeling myself when I opt for an easy out with something more modern even if it thrifted.

Thank you sweetie that would be lovely.
