So what to wear to the Office when pregnant? When I looked around me at (working) pregnant women I thought this was going te be a though cookie. But with my new favo shop Seraphine.com I now know it is not. (The label Seraphine is also available at Bijenkorf.nl)
This dress was also worn by Kate Middelton! (in fuchsia) and I really know why. It is sooo comfy and yet suitable for really any moment. Work, shopping, hanging out with friends etc. Even my cat loves it 😉
White Blazer H&M – sold out. Dress polka dot knot dress Seraphine here. Shoes Manolo Blahnik Pretati- not for sale anymore. Vest (see below) Repeat Cashmere sold out but check http://www.repeatcashmere.com for similar colors and vests.
I was soo happy when I finally saw a heartbeat on the ultrasound after 4 miscarriages. But now I beated the challenge of getting and staying pregnant I now stood before the what to wear challenge. After 14 weeks my ‘normal’ clothing became thigther and thighter.. So I had a good reason to shop.
Because I am pregnant in spring/summer and the spring can be really cold in the Netherlands but the summer really hot I wanted to do some smart shopping. You only wear maternity clothing for a few months after all. But I want get throug my pregnancy with a bit of style…
First stop for me was H&M, they have some nice maternity pieces for a great price. But soon I also fell in love with Seraphine maternity clothing which is based in the UK.
So here is one of my first pregnancy outfits just right for those colder spring days.
Blouse H&M Mama- sold our, top H&M Mama here, Pants Seraphine maternity here, shoes Addidas superstar here, watch Maurice Lacroix fiaba diamonds here
Because I believe nails are just as important as your outfit or hairdo I paint them every week (also never forget your toes especially when you show them!!)
One of my best friends has her own beauty salon and she introduced me with OPI a few years ago. And since then I have been true to this brand.
I especially love the nail envy line op OPI, which besides a nice colour strenghtens your nails. I have got these three colours
As you can see I use the bubble bath colour the most.
Before painting my nails I always file them in a round shape. I believe a round shape helps to not break my nails as fast as when in a square shape. I also always use a glass file, I was told this also helps to prevent your nails from breaking. This file also last very long!
After filing, and when I use a lighter colour I always use a white pencil for under the white lining of the nail. This gives you that french manicure look without too much fuss.
But today I am going for the colour Hawaiian Orchid.
After aplying two coats. I al set for the week ahead!
