Secondhand Maternity Style - 30 Weeks..

 Dress: Borrowed from my mum's fabulous wardrobe  Jacket: Thrifted
Tights: Target  Boots: Rivers
Brooch: Vintage

 Oh what fun it is to find something to wear out to your own birthday celebrations when your in your 30 weeks pregnant and your current idea of a lovely night in is your husband cooking, crocheting baby goodies on the couch and going to bed before 9pm.  With some love and persuasion from my beautiful family and a little afternoon of playing dress ups, the solution was this fun retro inspired dress teamed with my favourite boots and trusty black jacket.  My gorgeous sister snapped a few photos before we headed out to my new favourite dinner spot, Mooshka at Sunshine Beach followed by a wonderful evening of jazz performed by none other than my sister and brother in-law's fabulous band, Big Kitty. It was such a great night, with lovely company and even a spot of dancing. I think our little bubba already loves a bit of good old jazz!

This week it's back to quiet nights in, reading baby books, watching cooking shows and family snuggles on the couch. Good times!

Much Love

  2. LOVE this outfit!! You look amazing, Sophie. I love your blog and the love for life that shines through your writing.
    All the best for these last few weeks - that is one lucky baby in there :)

  3. You look fantastic! My hubby has a huge work christmas party every year with 500 people and a dress up theme. When I was pregnant with my second child the party fell when I was 38 weeks pregnant and the theme was DISCO! Yep, gold lurex, massive heels and a ginormous belly. mel x
