A-LINE AND LOTS OF CATS

This Sunday I drove Eddi to the airport; he went for a conference in Iceland. Spent my day going to an art exhibition with K and listening to Elvis. But before all this I engaged my husband in the very important and giving activity of taking outfit pictures.

(I look super pregnant here but is really only is the pose, I am still not due before June.)

The important activity of outfit-posing is not made easier by two posing-eager cats. But maybe funnier.

I have had to buy some new clothes. Or, so far only this one made it to my wardrobe as I haven't foudn anything else that pleases my eye in the stores over here. But thanks to the good ol' internet I won't have to succumb to just leggings and trendy tunics for later in spring. As you may recall, most of my clothing is non-stretchy and cut in at the waist. Not comfy with a little bump and extra fluff. Not wearable actually. Apart from a few items, most things started feeling uncomfortable right away, due to many reasons. One being the fact that my ribcage, yes, not breast but ribcage, grew right away (hmpf); I couldn't fasten the zipper in many dresses without feeling stuffed and uneasy.

This here is not a maternity dress though but an a-line dress I found (at Seppälä) and bought in one size bigger than usually. It has lots of room, but the lining underneath is actually not that roomy, so I might have to cut it up and alter it at some point.

The shoes are my Melissas and the cardigan an H&M-one from a few years back.

Cute. If anybody can pull off looking fabulous with a big pregnant belly it's going to be you!

Adorable dress! It's great to find pregnancy clothes still suited your usual style - but don't worry if you end up in leggings and tunics - when I was really uncomfortable in last month of pregnancy the last thing I though was how I looked - just as long I was comfy. I ended up wearing hideous mustard coloured trousers I found cheap from charity shop - talking about glam :)

Congratulations! You've probably already checked but what do you think about the maternity wear that Shabby Apple has to offer? I just love the 'Oh Baby' dress.

Congratulations on your good news. You look like an incredibly stylish mum to be. I just wanted to say as well how much I enjoy reading your blog. Thank you!

Hey there,

I've been reading your blog for what seems like AGES, getting inspired by your style or simply entertained by the prettiness around here.

I know it is pure coincidence, but we both seem to be at roughly the same stage of pregnancy now, which I consider a real fun fact.

Congratulations and all the best to you and your loved ones.

My ribcage expanded 2" each time I was pregnant. It contracts again some months after you deliver.

and you look lovely.

As I got pregnant a lot of people told me to get rid of my cats, I didn't !! we actually got a third one, our boy is 4 months now and the cats adore him :) it's so nice to see you posing with them, you look adorable!

Lucia said...

Vilken fin klänning! Graviditeten klär dig verkligen, du ser jätte söt ut. Och sen tycker jag att du ser ut att vara en JÄTTE TREVLIG och skojig person! Du har en inre charm som lyser igenom. Jag gillar sista bilden som rör sig :)

Have you seen these maternity dresses from Pretty Things Boutique (a Canadian shop)? Too cute, almost worth getting pregnant for myself. =)
