With a hand-picked selection of bump-friendly pieces from brands such as 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Maje, Sandro, Joseph, Mary Katrantzou and Valentino NINE IN THE MIRROR makes styling the bump a lot easier, so at 9 months pregnant I teamed up with the number one shopping destination for expectant women and new moms for a coats story featuring four autumn-stars; the parka, the baseball jacket, the trenchcoat and the cocoon coat.
Imagine having carried around a big bump that made even the most simple everyday things such as tying your shoes (the ones that I could still fit into) almost impossible, and then from one day to another it is (almost) gone. I can’t wait to rediscover my wardrobe and all the pieces that have been stored for months, but even more to start shopping for the old (or is it new?) me again.
So here we go. My first post pregnancy outfit wearing new favourite pants by T by Alexander Wang (to all the preggers out there – they are bump-friendly) and a sweater by & Other Stories that I have been longing for ever since I saw it in the Paris showroom back in February. Dressing comfortable is everything these days where I’m slowly adjusting to my new life as a mommy. No silky tops, no tight dresses and most definitely no heels. Maybe next month…
And then this happened…
Monday the 13th of October this little man finally decided to meet the world. He is happy, healthy and ready to conquer the world, and I honestly can’t believe how lucky I am to have him in my life.
Also, thank you so much for all your greetings on both Facebook and Instagram. You are the best.
I finally reached my due date but there’s still no sign of the baby. Trying to be patient, but trust me, at this stage it’s not that easy. I really can’t wait to meet the little man!
Anyhow, this is what I was wearing yesterday when heading to a meeting followed by yet another appointment at the mid-wife (hopefully the last one). The dress has become one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe and when layered with a cropped top or sweater it can easily be used all year round. The only piece you haven’t seen before is the clutch, also by Baum und Pferdgarten, which I think has delivered one of the best collections this season. I honestly want everything and this clutch knows how to make your outfit stand out whether worn day or night.
This is the season to work some camel colours into your closet, and Designers Remix is a good place to look when hunting for the right pieces. Like the unmissable culottes. Or the v-neck sweater dress. Camel colours are definitely a must this autumn whether you’re wearing them head-to-toe or teamed with other neutrals such as white, black, grey or navy.
