What I Wore Wednesday #2
Ok, so it’s Wednesday, so I thought I should try and join in again, it has been a very long time, and this is only the second time I’ve joined in the fun, but being pregnant and not enjoying getting dressed at all hasn’t really been an incentive.
I’m going out for the day with the hubby and my little boy Judah, therefore I have opted for comfort. Above is a blue dress from Debenhams that I have owned for ages, it always drowned me, even when I bought it, but at the time I was very self-conscious so tended to wear baggy clothes. This purchase years ago, has served me well, as even now at 36 weeks pregnant the lining fits over my HUGE bump.
I am wearing black £4 leggings from Primark that somehow still stretch over everything, I kept intending to buy myself some more comfortable maternity leggings from H&M but I always ended up spending more money on the children and putting it off. It is now so late in the day (with only 4 weeks left) that I refuse to buy any maternity clothes. I have got away with not buying any so far this pregnancy as I own lots of baggy tops, dresses from before I lost weight a few years ago and coupled with my trusty £4 black leggings I’ve managed to get by. Also, under my dress I’m wearing a strappy green vest from New Look, just to preserve my dignity and not have my cleavage all out. Pregnancy has me currently at an L cup which is just ridiculous. Also, means I can only really purchase my maternity/nursing bras from Bravissimo who have a great range, but even my bras from there are a K cup, I just make do.
I have been living in my black Mini Bailey Button Uggs ever since the weather changed. I love my full-size chestnut ones, but these are so easy to slip on my feet (even if most of the time the girls and James sometimes have to help me). Being black and the amount of times I’ve lived in my black leggings, they go with EVERYTHING.
My free gift for my subscription to Elle UK finally arrived this week. Lots of beautiful TOPSHOP make up. A lovely bronzer, beautiful cream eyeshadow, a great liquid eyeliner, and the nail polish and lipstick pictured below.
The nail polish matched my dress perfectly, so decided to paint my poorly, brittle nails (pregnancy has not been kind to my hair and nails this trimester, last trimester they were lush, but weaknesses abound at the moment).
The shade of lipstick that arrived was amazing, it has been a few years since I owned an orange shade. I used to have a lush Dior lipgloss that I lived in til it ran out, and just forgot to replace, but this arriving has reminded me that I quite like to rock the orange lip look as opposed to my usual nude lips or bright red.
As I’m going out with the hubster, I thought I would make an effort and wear some jewellery. Again, just can’t usually be bothered at the moment, but hey, if I can put a bit of make up on then out comes the jewellery too. He thinks Christmas has come early, lol. Below is my wedding necklace. Bought from one of the Designers at Debenhams (I don’t remember which one, shamefully), they have lots of beautiful little stands in there thought don’t they? Everytime I wear it someone comments on how beautiful it is.
So that’s it for my ‘What I Wore Wednesday’, thanks to transatlantic blonde for this fun link up. I look forward to when my little girl arrives and she can join in.
