2013 Week 31: My Wednesday Style Collective: Pregnancy Round Up Edition.....

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.

Lots of fab looks, I do think you have managed to stay very stylish and true to your vintage-loving roots throughout your pregnancy. And I for one had NO clue you were pregnant till you told us! xxx

You looked so great in al your style collective posts throughout your pregnancy, and I honestly don't know how you did it - sticking with your vintage aesthetic the whole way through! you should be very proud of yourself, and I hope you do write that post about how to make the most of your vintage wardrobe while pregnant, because I'm sure there are so many vintage loving mummas out their who are willing to take their hat off to you for sticking to your guns like this and would love some tips! xx

Thank you my sweet. I am proud very proud, it's just that sort proud that's for me. There's been so many things with my pregnancies that haven't been in my terms or have been heavily clouded in PTSD. It's been a gift to give myself and feel like me through my pregnancy in my clothes and feel true to me.

What a gorgeous montage of your pregnancy style. I love the combinations you've created. I did wonder if you were with child, but only because I knew you were hoping to add to your family. You must be eager to get back into that 50's frock soon! Xx

He he he, yes well breastfeeding and my wardrobe will be open to a whole new set of experiences and challenges. I'll likely be channeling a lot more vintage hippy looks.
