OOTD Maternity | Green Goddess ft ASOS



*Cue stirring synthesiser beat* It’s the final countdowwwwwn…

Well, I can’t quite believe it myself, but here I am at 35 weeks pregnant. The hospital bag is packed, the baby grows are washed, I’m prepping my handover notes for maternity leave from work, and our little girl could be arriving at any point. Being pregnant the second time around is definitely a very different experience from when I had my son, but it’s still raced by.

I’ve enjoyed sharing some maternity fashion posts this time around, something I didn’t do with my first pregnancy, other than one wedding guest outfit. I think it's mainly to do with having a lot more maternity clothes this time and having to wear them earlier, but also with becoming more confident with the intersection between my personal style and the practicalities of motherhood.
So I have a final couple of outfits to share, that I hope may help out some other mums to be.

Dresses are definitely easier for me than maternity jeans and trousers - I appreciate the throw-on-and-go simplicity, especially on busy working mornings with a demanding toddler. And ASOS Maternity is definitely my most-worn label of this pregnancy, they’re killer for stylish, flattering buys. Although I mainly prefer dark colours, I seem to have branched out into brights lately, perhaps it's all the lovely summer weather we’ve been having.

‘Aurora’ nude ankle boots | All Saints
Blush snake print box bag | Paul Smith
Acetate sunglasses | Minoen Eyewear

This floaty, emerald-green shift dress with its bold, oriental embroidery is just such a beautiful, happy piece. It would be perfect for a wedding or a garden party styled up a little differently, but I’m actually enjoying dressing it down a little. The nude ankle boots are quite high, but they're relatively stable and comfy. There's something about a dress and boots combo that I really love.

A dress this shouty doesn’t need a bunch of accessories, so I just added a couple of my new finds - this dreamy blush box bag is something I picked up at the Paul Smith Warehouse Sale. It’s beautifully made, and the formal, satchel style shape works well with the dress. It can also be worn cross-body if I need to be hands-free to deal with Theo.

And I love these sunglasses from Minoen Eyewear - the shape is just so pretty. Best of all? They were £6.00! I have a couple of pairs because I like the design so much, and if they get lost or Theo plays with them and breaks them (I learned my lesson when he broke a pair of my Ray-Bans) I won’t have to cry too much!

My bump is seriously huge at the moment and I’m definitely feeling tired out and ready to slow down, so a good dress is of massive importance in making me feel better. What maternity outfit inspiration have you found recently?
