Well, back in burning Bucharest… I kinda like the seaside more during the hot summer months, but from time to time we have to get back to reality. The truth is, the only clothes I find bearable these days are flow-y summer dresses which is just perfect as I have to say, anything skin-tight makes me feel like a sausage. My belly is not yet at the point where it actually looks like a pregnant belly, no, on the contrary actually, right now it resembles more a belly stuffed with two large pizzas and three beers, so not really a pretty sight.
Taking this into consideration, my go-to clothes right now – thank God it’s summer – are summer dresses. As a matter of fact, I don’t really have any other option. Most of my clothes are tailored for my by-now-forgotten small waist. That’s actually the only style that really appeals to me but it requires a toned tummy. Besides the summer dresses that cover the pizza belly, another great thing about summer are the sales. For example, both me and D are wearing clothes that don’t go over 20 E together excluding accessories, shoes and bags.
Dress – H&M; Shoes – Calvin Klein; Bag – Obag; Shades – Dior; Bling – Tomorrowland, Pandora, Swarovski and Constantin Nautics; Watch – Tissot
thing that attracted me to this 7E H&M dress was the print and the fact that it was very appropriate for hot summer days. I think that this dress might fit me perfectly when I’ll be 9 months pregnant, so even if you have a more advanced pregnancy, go ahead and buy it as it will last you throughout the entire period and it’s not even maternity. Apparently this is my M.O. where shopping is concerned these days. I haven’t yet changed sizes where clothes are concerned, so I can still invest in pieces that will last me way beyond my due date. Though, this 7E dress can’t really be called an investment as log as it costs just as much as a McDonald’s large menu.
Moving along to the parts of the outfit that were a bit more expensive. I wore this pair of Calvin Klein platforms for the first time now, after I bought them last autumn. It would appear that the fact that my thighs have gotten fatter, I feel the need to always wear something that will give me a bit more height and proportion. This is one aspect of the pregnancy that will get an individual post – getting to the point where you understand that you will put on weight, and that’s a good thing. To keep things on a blue theme I wore my Obag, and naturally, the never absent Dior sunglasses.
Shorts – Pull and Bear; T-shirt – Bershka; Shoes – Pull and Bear; Bling – Constantin Nautics; Watch – Tissot
D kept the same colour palette, but a very different print, and I love that he was brave enough to pull off stripes on stripes, especially as he looks so good wearing them. His shorts are from Pull and Bear and were the astounding price of 9E while his T-shirt is from Bershka and was about 5E. The amazing thing about these two pieces is the fact that they work together so nicely, as if they were made to be worn together. He also opted for his ancient espadrilles from Pull and Bear that complimented the outfit nicely.
We both wore our Tissot T-Race watches and it would appear that we have no intention to switch to any of our other watches for now as we are a bit obsessed with them. Bling wise, we both wore a Constantin Nautics bracelet each, while I completed my look with my usual Tomorrowland and Pandora rings and another multi looking ring from Swarovski. D did not wear his Fossil bracelet this time, to my surprise, despite the fact that it would’ve looked great with the brown shade in his T-shirt and in my dress.
I have to say, that even though I am in my fourth month of pregnancy, I do not intend to switch to maternity clothes as long as I can find alternatives. I really hope that I will not have to until very late in my pregnancy.
One thought on “Not switching to maternity…yet!”
[…] (yes, it is a dress)? Well that’s because it is one of my summer dresses that I also wore here and that surprisingly still fits and feels great over my bump. Having recently discovered that I […]
