When I was pregnant with Ava I really didn't make an effort at all, I bought some maternity tights and a pair of maternity jeans in an awful burgundy colour (what was I thinking?!). I would just buy non-maternity clothes in a couple of sizes bigger, but of course the fit was all wrong! I don't like any of the photographs of me from this time in my life and I told myself that if I ever had another baby I'd make more of an effort. I've found this pregnancy pretty rough so far, so just putting on a nice, comfortable outfit can really make my day.
Now whilst JD Williams don't have a maternity section, they do have an array of gorgeous, comfortable dresses to suit all shapes & sizes. The first thing that attracted me to this dress was the autumnal print and cold-shoulder detail which makes it incredibly versatile. I can wear it to work or just as a casual, weekend outfit. It's made from lovely, stretchy material which will allow me to get my wear out of it as my bump grows and with the cold weather approaching it's easily layered with a pair of tights and a cardigan. The 3/4 sleeves are also slightly flared which I love.
Ankle boots are are an A/W wardrobe staple in my opinion and these black suede boots from Heavenly Sole are perfect. They are so soft and comfortable and the heel is low enough for me not to feel like a weeble, teetering over with my bump. I also like their Western feel.
This is the perfect outfit for the changing season, I can't wait to wear it with my blooming bump.
