Day 1: It's Outfit Time...


Coat: Karen Millen, Jeans: French Connection, 
Top: Blossom, Shoes: Pod Sunglasses: Boots

Hey gorgeous crumpets,

{Will you join me on the ride to halt me from the oh-so-easy but hideous slide into dressing like a sack of potatoes when pregnant...?}

I was ridiculously and childishly excited this morning. My eyes opened in a flash, much to Guy's not-well-hidden surprise. I'm not always at my sheeny-shiniest in the mornings {ahem}...but today, I bounded out of bed, like a puppy unleashed in the woods, only more in the style of a girlie with a big tummy, towards my outfit that I had laid out the night before. Perhaps lumbered would be a more accurate description. Yes, 'Lumbered with enthusiasm' probably nails it.

 Having woken up with such a spring in my step, I felt such an occasion called for my very best coat. Nay, demanded.

Even if I can't do it up. Front or back.
See the belt hanging by my sides, limp and lifeless? 

I have to tell you that when I first clapped my magpie eyes on this coat, I heard angels singing. Yes, singing. The coat called my name and I actually was forced to buy it. 

That's the story I'm sticking to and I'll be danged if I can't wear it for the next five months. So limp and lifeless it is, I'm afraid.

I think that coat might actually be singing my name for the spring too :-)

The coat would speak to me too if I had your grace. You look amazing.

Susan T said...

I certainly didn't look like that when I was pregnant, although I have never been as stylish when I wasn't either. You look a stunner Sarah, raising Yummy Mummy to new heights.

Erin S. said...

Hi Sarah! You look so great--love the wide belt under your darling baby bump, and that coat is awesome. Don't fret if you can't tie it--it is just sportily, jauntily left undone and all according to plan, right? :) Plus, when I'm pregnant I'm always uncharacteristically warm, so closing your coat would be really uncomfortable.

Teresa@Magazine Your Home said...
