Just a bit of a blue moment happening here…no gender announcement yet, but I suspect that by the time we will have to make an announcement we both would have run out of pink and blue clothes. These shades seem to be our preferred ones recently, alongside the neutral grey that will probably turn into a more brownish hue for autumn. Unfortunately you can not see exactly how blue we were as we shot these photos right at sunset and let me tell you, the light is terrible especially if the desired effect is a more cold, icy one… None the less, these pics are part of my pregnancy album and I am very happy every time we manage to do a photoshoot especially since time is sparse lately.
I’ve been wanting to wear this top/dress ever since I bought it from the Fashion corner at Untold festival – yeah, it’s been that long and it just stayed in my closed with the tags on, I guess that’s how I got to find clothes that I bought years ago still with their tags on when I rearranged my dressing room. Obviously this lovely piece is made by the very talented Romanian designer Iulia Sasu and it is just perfect for me during this period where I mostly feel comfortable with the way I look if I wear loose clothes that cover up as much as possible – I am sure it is just a phase. I love everything about this top: the length, the shape and the materials, not to mention the lovely shades of blue!
I decided to wear this top with a pair of denim short shorts from Mango, and, I must admit to myself and to all of you that I miss my slender, athletic thighs, I seriously can not wait to get back in the gym – again this is a phase as I have days when I simply love not having to go (actually being forbidden to go) and work out. There are days and days… I also wore my Untold acquired Paez denim shoes – did you think that only D bought Paez espadrilles? Seriously, it’s shoes we are talking about after all! To complete my blue look I wore my Michael Kors mini Hamilton navy bag.
D is always excited when we have a blue photoshoot as he loves the colour as much as I do. I am well aware you can not see it in the photos, but his shorts from Mango are light blue as opposed to the greyish shade that appears in the photos because of the very warm light. His t-shirt is from Replay and obviously you can’t currently find it online, but I did manage to link a pretty solid alternative. His espadrilles are also from Paez and I have to say that for the first time, he bought more pairs of shoes than I have. This is making history!
We both wore our Longines watches simply because when you have a blue outfit you can not go wrong with the ever classic Hydroconquest. D wore both a Constantin Nautics and Fossil bracelet, while I opted for my Tomorrowland and Pandora rings, but at the last minute decided to throw in a big blue ring from Swarovski in the mix. D also wore a Constantin Nautics necklace just to accentuate even more the blue theme.
Despite the photos turning out too orange for my taste, I am very glad we got to do a new blue photoshoot to document the way I am expanding with each passing day. Even though we are posting every other day, please know that we do our best under the circumstances and as soon as our house is back on track we will start doing it more often.
