Lounge pant love

Lounge pant love

The further my pregnancy has progressed, the more my outfit choices have reflected comfort. Dresses and stretchy waistbands are now everyday staples, as anything that pulls too tightly across my bump has felt constricting and itchy.   A couple of months ago  I started looking for a few items that I could wear both during my hospital stay and in those first postpartum weeks, when I’ll no doubt be a little sore and tender and spending most of time at home.

After overwhelming success with Ripe branded maternity wear in the early part of my pregnancy, I turned to them again and in the process I think I’ve found the world’s comfiest lounge pants…

My maternity wardrobe

My maternity wardrobe

I’m almost halfway through my pregnancy now and I really can’t believe how quickly the weeks are flying by.  My morning sickness seems to have subsided (hooray!) and although I still indulge in a day-time nap whenever I can, that overwhelming exhaustion of the first trimester has passed.  I’ve also now developed a little bump and after weeks of making my existing wardrobe work, I’ve finally picked up a couple of maternity specific pieces…

Adam and I are off on a little holiday to Brisbane, Queensland in a few days time and we both can’t wait.   It’s only for a few days, but we’re very much looking forward to some downtime by a pool and catching up with friends and family – some of whom we haven’t seen since we set off for England in 2016.

As with all my mini-breaks, I’ll be keeping my luggage to a minimum…

The warm weather wardrobe

The warm weather wardrobe

It’s been an obscenely hot few weeks here in Wagga Wagga.  I’m talking record breaking temperatures, day after day after day after day.  It might be tolerable if you’re staying in some five star resort, full of palm tree surrounded pools and can laze around in a pair of swimmers all day.  But, when you’ve got to carry on with normal working life, knowing how to dress everyday can be tough.

If I had to pick a ‘uniform’, it’d be jeans and a top – lightweight in summer, heavier in the winter.  It’s what I feel most comfortable in, but jeans aren’t the most practical option during Australia’s long summers.  A few weeks back, faced with the prospect of a work day outside in the heat, I took a punt on a new item of clothing.  It’s been my saviour this January…
