Khaki and Gold

Let me start by making a little disclaimer...

This outfit is very basic and casual. It epitomises my pregnancy uniform throughout the third trimester, which always comes down to the rule that comfort comes first. Being comfortable has become not only of great importance but essential to my functioning properly!

Ok, so that may seem a bit over the top, but I'm at the stage now where it's difficult to move if the wrong trousers are put on. And attaching socks and shoes to my feet is akin to a workout that either leaves me rolling around on the floor attempting to get up again or sets off braxton hicks cramps!

So, onto the outfit itself...

I'll start by talking about the two maternity items I'm wearing which are both from Topshop.

Blue Maternity Joni Jeans - I hated these at first because they sagged and didn't fit anything like my original Joni Jeans, but I have come to love them later on in my pregnancy. They have give in the material which means if you swell up (as you inevitably do when carrying a baby) you can still move! I was wearing regular jeans up until the end of December when I had to give in as I was beginning to walk robotically.

Black Slim Fit Vest - This was only £8 and has served me well over the past 7 months! In the earlier trimesters it fits like a dress, but as your bump grows it gets increasingly shorter till it starts to look like a regular vest top.

The khaki waffle knit cropped jumper is again from Topshop, however it's from their standard range of clothing. I bought this last summer and have it in a range of colours as I was obsessed with the fit and how it looks with regular Joni jeans. Cropped tops are perfect during pregnancy to pair over a long vest, and also when breastfeeding with a nursing cami underneath.

Jumper - Topshop (Sold out but can be found on eBay)
Vest - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop
Gold Studded Converse - Schuh
Watch - Michael Kors (Not sure which model as it was a gift)

I went to get my hair done today and had some slightly lighter pieces put through the top to create a softer ombre style, which is apparently called sombre. I hadn't had it cut or coloured since July (as you can see by my roots and shaggy ends in the photos above) because the salon that I usually go to has closed down and I haven't been able to get in touch with my usual hairdresser. This meant I had to brave it and see someone new which always terrifies me! Please tell me it's not just me that feels scared when going to a new hairdresser?
