Monday's What to Wear to Work: Monochrome maternity

When I was expecting Little Monsieur, I have to admit style was not always at the forefront of my mind... And, though it looks like it will be quite tough given how strong the attraction of a comfortable legging and poncho combo is at times (ok, most times), I'm giving myself a new challenge this time: I shall strive to keep my sartorial standards up throughout most of my pregnancy.

After all, I'm going to be a mother again, not a grandmother... so there is nothing saying I must eschew high heels and high fashion.  Of course, my swollen feet will beg to differ, but whilst it's bearable, I'll keep trying, for high heels make any outfit (and, any expanded hip width...)  look better. That said, I will keep my heels slightly lower than usual, 3-4 inches max., and do my best to combine comfort with style.

This means, since I'm still getting up at 5:30am everyday  to go to work, I'm going to need to think even more in advance to put together outfits which look somewhat good yet are comfortable... Quite a challenge! Let's see if I'm able to win it, shall we?

Here's the first outfit I'm thinking of putting together. Monochrome, nobody can go wrong with that... A cape, perfect to keep bump warm. And, the little touch of daredevil in the leather pencil skirt. Watch this space, I'll be modelling something very similar in the next few days!


My shopping list for monochrome fabulous bump wear:
- Leather pencil skirt, Isabella Oliver
- Turtleneck top with ruched sides, Isabella Oliver
- Double cashmere cape, Joesph
- Fox fur trimmed gloves, Agnelle
- Suede very reasonable height heels, Gianvito Rossi
- Large tote, Balenciaga

This outfit would be stunning. Can't wait to see it on you. Glad you're back and (assuming) all is well.
