Midi skirts, both Warehouse // Maxi, ASOS.
It’s fair to say that I am really getting to the stage of being truly fed up with maternity clothes. Dresses are fine and there are plenty of cute ones about, but when it comes to this warm weather I have been living in a pair of denim maternity shorts and vests. Comfy but I’m not feeling like much of a glowing mama. I’m also turning my thoughts to what I’m going to wear post partum, comfortable clothes that make me feel less of a wreck and allow me to wear something on top that is conducive to feeding. I decided a maxi skirt would be good and spied some in GAP (non maternity) with fold down waists that could go under bump now and over after baby, but they are not super inspiring. If you’re in the same boat as me, Seraphine also has a maternity split side maxi in the sale. However I did spot some gorgeous ones in the non-maternity sections (lucky for you guys!) and thought I’d share a couple here.
I’m going to do a feature on style for Breast Feeding soon, but if you have any tips, I’d love to hear them!
I’m having a little obsession over clothes for my bottom half right now. I’m a massive fan of dresses, but I really dislike buying tops and bottoms. My work wardrobe is a whole other thing but if I’m off duty I’m rarely out of my jeans. That’s fine if I’m dressing them up or down with sparkly tops or a knit, but when I want to wear something else, something a little cooler perhaps, or more comfortable, I’m stumped.
That is until recently when I began a love affair with skirts. I have a very fancy skirt I treated myself to in the My-Wardrobe sale from Mulberry (I know *credit card shudder* – It was a treat.) It’s the D-Ring paperbag waist skirt and looks fab with something sleek on the top half to balance the proportions. I prefer to wear a white vest with it or fitted white tee. However, as I said, that is rather fancy, so whilst I don’t believe in saving things for best (when is that anyway?) I try not to wear it for any old occasion!
And now I’ve stumbled across this sunshine yellow skirt by EmersonMade. More on Emerson another time, but hello skirt!
*Goldie Pockets Skirt $188, EmersonMade
So, right now $188 dollars (about £115) is a little too much for me to spend, so I thought I would have a look around for some alternatives on the high street.
The ASOS one is quite a good replica! Or can you point me towards a better one?
So can I tempt you?
