2013 Week 28: My Wednesday Style Collective......

This week I'm just going to try and distract you from my apparent lack of style with my tummy and how big it is now. My defence is that my recent woes with pain in my butt cheek, is now actually quite full on pelvic pain and ligament pain and issues. Some days to walk, lift a leg or do anything too physical is a challenge. The cure for this issue as my doctor has informed me is, to have this baby.

How hilarious is that information, we've got a few more weeks of this pain ahead to manage, so excuse the lack of style as the wide leg pants were all I could manage to put on in the least amount of pain. Sadly though the wide leg yoga pants are the down fall to this outfit. It was all going okay on top with the cotton tunic and long sleeve tee and then it all went to pits with the wide leg yoga pants.

I'm right though aren't I, it's not come together well at all has it? Feel free to tell me and let me know I let the team down.

Oh well we all have a moment, so lets call this weeks style collective my "keeping it real late pregnancy addition". I've got a style challenge this Saturday as we are off on a night out, kid free to celebrate my 35th a few weeks early. The likelihood that I will be having baby on my birthday next month is extremely high, so celebrations are being bought forward. Pain or no pain, waddle or no waddle I will be pulling out whatever stops I can to manage a suitable and comfortable outfit from my array of vintage frocks. Hmmm now just to find which one I can get into with this tummy of mine. Wish me luck I'm going in there head first.

Ooo, you're about to pop! How exciting!
I'm quite keen for the Duchess to pop too!
Yes, doll, that is indeed the coat I was looking for buttons for...I found some suitable modern ones at Spotlight; they're a bit tortoiseshell-like. I should have thought and took pix-next time!

Stop being silly woman, for someone with a bump as glorious as yours you look gorgeous. Yoga pants & all. The cotton tunic is super cute & all the focus is up top anyway. The literal pain in the butt must be awful. I hope your early birthday celebrations are a distraction for a few hours anyway. Xx

You're definitely going to need some luck, look at that tummy!!! Honestly, I can't help but be jealous of those pants. They look so comfy! xx

Thanks sweets. X

 
At July 17, 2013 at 7:15 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

Sure am.
The buttons I ended pulling out of my stash for you I suspect would have been too big for your coat, they're bloody huge.

 
At July 17, 2013 at 7:17 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

Thank you.
Yeah 35th, my last bubba trying to enjoy it all for the last time.

Bless you honey. The cotton tunic is handy retail buy that plays well into my vintage wardrobe. X

It's crazy isn't it.
The pants are fab and comfy though.

You are so adorable!

Ooh, that's a fine bump! Of course it's big - you've got a whole new person growing in there! I think it's all about comfort at this stage of pregnancy, but the tunic is very cute. xxx

 
At July 18, 2013 at 4:50 PM , Blogger Vix said...

That tunic is very cute, loving the shoulder ruffles.
One of my friends is about to pop too, her due date is Friday and this 33 degree weather is just about killing her! x

I'd say you're succeeding admirably despite the trouble! Good luck to you during the trying later months!

 
At July 19, 2013 at 1:42 PM , Blogger Leah said...

Finally figured out how to follow your blog, yay me! I think you look lovely, don't envy how uncomfortable you mst be though, thank heavens it's all worth the end result! Leah (paperecollection) x

You are radiant! I know the last bit of this is super hard. I wore big, flowy strapless sundresses the last two months of my pregnancy. I could just slip them on (with a pair of flip flops because I sure as heck couldn't see my feet!) and forget about fashion! Hang in there, you'll be back to your stylin' self in no time!

 
At July 20, 2013 at 8:51 AM , Blogger Iliska Dreams said...

Big? Come on, you can get bigger than that!!!

 
At July 20, 2013 at 4:09 PM , Blogger Maxabella said...

I can't help but feel that a little short skirt and thick tight combo might have worked out better for you. I can't honestly think of any kind of outfit that would pull together with crop wide leg yoga pants... but you know what? You are 123 weeks pregnant and all I can really see is your gorgeous smile and beautiful tum. x

Hi Trudie,

Congrats on your pregnancy - you look absolutely gorgeous! Lovely to have found your blog from the Rewind :-)

I think I may have had that exact same square, colourful blanket growing up.

Thank you.

 
At July 22, 2013 at 12:37 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

I know at the end it's about comfort but I desperately want to try and keep my style to the end, it helps keel my spirits up.

 
At July 22, 2013 at 12:38 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

Your poor friend I've done summer pregnancy twice in those temps and higher its not fun.

 
At July 22, 2013 at 12:39 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

Thanks Van, I only have about a month left. Goodness I'd shudder to think what I'd lookalike of I had months left lol.

 
At July 22, 2013 at 12:40 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

Yay, yay you found me. Hello my love and thank you for your kind words,

 
At July 22, 2013 at 12:41 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

Thanks for popping by Niki. The end is always hard, but I'm trying my best to stick with my style.

 
At July 22, 2013 at 12:42 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

You cheeky devil, I laughed out loud when I read your comment. X

 
At July 22, 2013 at 12:45 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

See I said it went pair shaped with the pants. But hey in the attempts to keep blogging real, every dog has got have it's day.

Oh thanks Mel thanks for joining me.
It's a nice blanket I picked it up at op shop, sadly I can't get all snuggly up in it though like the kids. As I think it has mohair or angora wool and I'm allergic and flares up my eyes something bad.
