What I wore & my two favorite preggy items.

I am totally running out of clothes. At 35 weeks pregnant, I refuse to buy more. The striped dress/top below is one of my favorites. When collecting images for this post, I noticed I have worn it rather often recently. I am also LOVING my spotty dress/top from Woolies. A real keeper, and I can also wear it after my pregnancy.

I’m reallytrying to not buy anything new, although I am struggling to find existing items in my wardrobe to stretch over this belly of mine. I’m finding myself living in tights and longer tops. The tops have to be *really* long though, because I don’t want to be that “I wear tights as pants’ person. It is hard though and winter doesn’t make it any easier with all the layers you have to wear. Cape Town has been a miserable mess lately. I have grown quite fond of wearing my hair in a bun – I think it’s my sub conscience prepping me for the convenient ways of motherhood. Next time I will take these photo’s from the side, as to ensure a better bump view. Here is what I’ve worn lately:

Denim jacket – Woolworths | Black knitted scarf – Woolworths | Black sweatshirt – H&M | Grey maternity top – Cherry Melon | Black tights – Next | Brown suede boots – Woolworths.
