So I thought that before I bade farewell to the golden trimester of pregnancy I better go back to all the outfits I wore the past three months. All these outfits are clothes from my pre-pregnancy closet. I didn´t shop for pregnancy clothes, and even the few dresses I bought while pregnant are dresses that I will certainly wear post pregnancy.
This b&w stripe dress is a sleeveless summer dress which I layered with a purple cardigan for an indoor outfit. This photo was taken on a winter day so this wouldn´t work outdoor.
For a first taste of spring, I layered a little gray dress with cowl neck with a black and white leopard print cardigan (which I could no longer close due to the bump), a pair of dark gray leggings, a brown leather jacket, and I finished the look with some high-top sneakers that are so comfy for a stroll at the park. I also added a black infinity scarf to keep my neck warm.
Fit and Flare Polka Dot Dress
That weekend hubby and I were invited to the first birthday party of Angie, my friend´s blessed baby who arrived while my friend was 42 years old! I wore a sleeveless fit and flare dotted dress which, luckily, has a stretchable bodice to accommodate my growing belly. I layered it with a black pullover.
Baby Angie was so lucky to have a warm weather for her birthday. The temperature hit 20 degrees so that we´re able to have outdoor pictorial.
Week 21: Rose Quartz
Rose Quartz is 2016`s pantone color. Digging deep in my closet I found this rose quartz knitted sweater dress which I have never worn because it used to make me look too thin pre-pregnancy. Now that I have gained a few kilos and with a showing bump, the dress fitted perfectly.
I layered it with a dark brown floral silk scarf, some black tights, a pink leather jacket, and some maroon lace-up ankle boots for spring.
This photo was rather spontaneous. Hubby and I did cat sitting for our two cats in the garden and he took some baby bump photos for me. I was wearing my house clothes, a comfy knitted sweater in mint with some comfy, red plaid shorts, and I swapped my winter slippers for these (for the garden) flat brown boots. I also threw over a printed velvet cardigan which is my favorite.
Really loving this biker look I created for my bump. This outfit features Calvin Klein leather boots, Zara leather jacket, X=ACT sweater dress (a popular brand in Thailand), and Picard satchel.
I matched a floral print Mango sweater with a Mango plaid mini skirt (both monochrome) for an appointment with my OB. Because it snowed that day, I finished the look with some tall boots and an army coat.
My spring layering turned out to be not warm enough for the weather that day, but it was too late to go home and change, so I wrapped myself with a two-sided thick pashmina scarf to protect my baby bump from the cold. The scarf became the main statement of this look.
For a fridate with hubby, I layered a fave knitted sweater dress with flutter sleeves with all black – pullover, scarf, tights, and oxford flat shoes.
Paisley Print Mini Dress
This mini dress which I got from a flea market quickly became a favorite of mine. It´s so, so gorgeous that it can be layered nicely for spring or worn as is for summer. Because it´s empire waist, it catered my already big bump.
Hubby´s second cousin, who´s also his goddaughter, had her first communion last week. For the event, I dressed up a stretchy little black dress with black stockings, a houndstooth print blazer (sleeves rolled up) from Mango, snake print high heels with ankle strap from H&M, and a pink pop Valentino satchel.
Little Black Dress
This LBD was gifted to me by a friend in Bangkok. My hubby loves how it looked on me before I got pregnant, but the dress turned out to be also gorgeous for my bump because of its stretchy material. I just love how it shows off my bump. I accessorized it with a slim mono print scarf and of course, the snake print stilettos.
I love plenty of oversized pieces because of how comfortable they feel. This purple sweater is one of them; I got it from H&M last year and it´s just perfect for my bump. In order to balance the boxy look, I paired the sweater with some nude slim boots.
So that´s about my pregnancy outfits for second trimester. Remember that they´re mostly outfits for spring. I´ll be showing more in summer so expect me wearing maxi dresses and lots of airy mini dresses.
