Let me start this post by confessing that I am really, really excited to not wear maternity clothes ever again. Even though choices have become far more wearable over the past few years, the truth is that maternity clothing is expensive, you can’t wear it for very long and there just isn’t very much that would look flattering on a big bump. Having said that, it’s entirely possible to feel both comfortable and more or less stylish in maternity wear, and it’s relatively simple to achieve this without breaking the bank if you plan ahead a little bit. I’ve put together my five absolute must-have pieces that are getting me through all four seasons (from February to October, possibly the most annoying time period to be pregnant).
To celebrate the absolutely glorious weather and the first few days of freedom from exams, we decided to spend the days in the sun. I’m in dire need of a wardrobe update, but at the minute I’m just too poor, so I’m trying to make the things I have work. This dress is one of my favourites. It’s actually three years old, I bought it for my high school graduation, but it never seems to go out of fashion and it’s great quality! [ Read More… ] …
You may have noticed I’m in a bit of a sports craze at the moment. Since I’m spending a bit more time in my sports clothes, it’s nice to feel well-dressed in them.
What do you wear to work out?
When it comes to christmas gifts, I’m usually in the nice-but-useful corner. Practical things that will get a lot of use and won’t be outdated the second they’re unwrapped. This year is much the same, especially since anything that could help with the household or the wedding is greatly appreciated. Or Endnote, for that matter. *hints*.
But after seeing so many wish lists and gift guides on other blogs, I just couldn’t resist putting together a little fantasy collage of my own. Maybe someone is still looking for inspiration for a treat for a loved one, or is like me and just likes snooping at other people’s christmas wishes. The more I think about that, the weirder it gets, I don’t know what it is about collages on blogs that we all love so much. Anyway, I digress. I’m still learning how to use GIMP properly, so don’t judge my poor attempt too harshly.
