I've been looking forward to doing a style collective round up post about my pregnancy style. Overall I think I've done well to keep with my vintage and thrifted loving style since announcing to you all my pregnancy back in February, when I donned and squeezed myself into my sweet 1950's frock (top middle pic below) I'd been desperately waiting to share with you all.
Before any of you even knew I was pregnant I adopted front on pictures only in my style pics and dressed around my bump in secret. I wondered all through that period if some of you might of picked up on changes in my appearance and had secretly wondered if I was pregnant and were burning to ask me. Either way when I announced this pregnancy you were all so wonderfully thrilled and supportive. Thank you.
Throughout this pregnancy I've pushed the boundaries on my vintage wardrobe and other pieces like no ones business. I have surprised myself by not succumbing to the need to purchase anything retail bar two pairs of extra leggings for winter. Because let's face with a wardrobe mainly filled with frocks, skirts and tops and a growing belly that has raised my hem line, leggings have been a go-between to help.
I think I've tried more pattern clashing, and unintended ways as well as inventive ways of wearing garments, than I probably would have ever considered if I wasn't pregnant. If this pregnancy has taught me anything more about my style. It's taught me pregnant or not, different body shapes or not, small, tall or not, when it comes to style you can get away with just about anything if you're willing to try it and carry it with confidence and say this is me.......somewhat.
This isn't even half the outfit combinations I've come up with, I do wish now I had been able to capture every single one. There are some rockin' ones I've missed.
I've had so much fun styling myself around this pregnancy and so pleased I pretty much made do with what I already had, a feat in itself.
