At the beginning of this pregnancy I vowed to myself (body and soul) that I would wear some lovely maternity wear. Last pregnancy I didn't buy anything aside from jeans, and as a result stretched every single item of clothing I owned. When the baby came, none of it was wearable so I had to throw it all out and invest in a -whole- new wardrobe. Silly Sophie. I learnt.
MrMoo and I attended a wedding at the weekend and I got the opportunity to show off my brand new Glory Breastmates Dress from their new maternity line.
I felt pregnant and fabulous in it and I think it shows! Its stretchy, soft and fits my pregnant figure perfectly! My new go to "special" favourite! This isn't the only time I've worn it since owning it. I've worn it on two date nights with MrMoo and to a Sunday morning Church service. If I had a job I think it would go down a treat in an office too!
I generally base my new outfits success on the amount of out-of-the-blue compliments I get. So far this has received nine. NINE! (I consider 3 good). I'm excited about having a nice dress to wear through the big months and then through the breastfeeding stage. Last time I missed not being able to wear dresses while breastfeeding, not realising maternity clothes allowed for nursing and this one does! Yipee!
The wedding we went to was lovely, MrMoo played celebrant for the first time (anyone want to get married!?) and the dress did great transitioning from an afternoon under the hot sun to eating dinner outside in a garden in the shade. Maternity wear, I am completely sold!
The 20 week bump is ever expanding in a basketball like fashion and BabyMoo2 is already half way along, it is flying by and I feel fabulous (and rushed!). I love the middle of pregnancy. My sickness has stopped, my skin and hair feel healthy and lovely and I'm reminded just to slow down, enjoy it and feel beautiful while it lasts!
(( Don't be surprised if every photo you see of me for the next 20 weeks has this dress in it! I'm a big fan! ))
