I’ve got another non-maternity maternity outfit for you again today, although this time, I am partially wearing maternity clothes! I’m feeling a lot more inspired to take outfit photos at the moment which is awesome. Lately I haven’t shared that many outfits, but with the changes in my body and the changes in the seasons around me, I’m feeling much more inspired about getting out there and taking photos. I’ve always thought I’d love to document maternity outfits, but I wasn’t sure how I would feel about my changing body. So far, there haven’t been any huge changes yet, but I’m loving how much my body is working to create something so amazing. I think the new presets I’m using with Lightroom really help too in feeling inspired to get outfit posts done as they’re making editing such a lovely, smooth process!
The jeans are my H&M maternity ones, although not my favourite ones (which I wore here) – those are more like leggings, whereas these ones are a little bit more jean-like, with less stretch and an actual (non-functional) button on the low waistband. Unfortunately, these are a little bit big for me. I knew they were too big when I tried them on after my 12 week scan, but I thought I’d grow into them over time, particularly since the bump was yet to arrive and because I’d lost weight in my first trimester. Sadly they’re not there yet and are too big around my legs – particularly my lower legs, which luckily you can’t see here thanks to the boots! – and they slide down around my hips.

Weirdly though, my favourite jeans have disappeared this week! I had them on Saturday, and now we can’t find them anywhere – they’re not in any washing baskets nor are they in my drawers or left on the floor anywhere. I’m hoping they’ve just fallen somewhere in the garage (where our washing machine is), so we’re going to turn that upside down (or at least more upside down than it is!) this weekend to find them. The problem is that my maternity wardrobe is very limited right now and I was wearing these jeans pretty much 24/7, so I’m struggling!
The jumper, however, is not a maternity piece. Fortunately, autumn and winter means that I can get away with simply buying oversized jumpers in a bigger size and wearing them over maternity bottoms like jeans and leggings. F&F have stopped selling online lately, which was a bit of a blow to me as I love their clothing, but we got a flyer in the post with £5 off their range in store that advertised this jumper, and I was sold immediately. I bought it in a size 12 rather than my usual size 10 and, oh my goodness, I love it! Throw snuggly, warm knitwear together with mustard and grey, and you’ve just designed my perfect jumper!
The weather hasn’t totally turned chilly enough to need a big coat yet, although a couple of days have been close, so I’m managing at the moment, but soon enough I’m going to need a maternity coat. I think my Alice’s Pig coat should keep me going, to be fair, but I’d like a shorter one too, so we’ll see what I can find.
I had been thinking about getting some new tall, winter boots this year too, but I pulled my old Clarks ones out and I think they have another season’s wear left in them! I’m glad as good winter boots can be pretty expensive, and while these are looking a little battered, I think they’ll survive.
