Day 3: Freaking Out...



Jumper: Kookai, Jeans: Crave Maternity, Boots: Marks and Spencers, 
Belt: Country Living fair, Hairband: Craft Fair find

Last night, when I was choosing what to wear today, I had my first wobbly moment about putting together this series of 30 different outfits from the 30 items I've picked out. It started when I caught sight of myself in the mirror from behind and it caught me off guard.'Who is that? Oh...it's me...'. Awkward pause while my brain digests my new bod. 

I thought this 30 for 30: Maternity Fashion was all going to be a breeze but I suddenly had butterflies in my tummy about being able to do it at all. And with all that's goin' on down there at the moment in my tum, there's not really much room for butterflies as well.

So thank you so much for your lovely comments and emails about this series. It's an odd thing trying to dress yourself when you're changing shape by the hour and your loveliness is helping me along.
You rock.

Lovely photoshoot, you look radiant and I love those jeans. Nice maternity jeans I think are important. My favourite and most expensive part of my maternity wardrobe were my seven for mankinds. I hummed and hawed about purchasing them but thinking back I am so glad I did.

You look stunning!! Until these old eyes adjusted for this early in the morning, I thought the photo's were of a model for clothing! Well, they are...YOU!!! I LOVE this outfit!!

I LOVE looking at my mom when she was pregnant with me!!! Your child will be so proud! These are MORE than pictures for your blog...these are heirloom pictures your child will cherish!!

Hugs,
Jan

As your baby grows, and you change, I think it's wonderful you're focusing on feeling lovely. And you are.

If you are worried about your backside view, I'm sorry to say you'll get no sympathy from me. Your backside makes mine look like the side of a barn!

As usual you look adorable. Have a lovely day!

bj said...

O, Sarah, you pregnant little thing, you,
you are an absolute DOLL and I highly suggest you send photos of your poofed-out body to some magazines these. You are so cute, you will be hired in a flash as their newest model of 'how to look smashing while pregnant'....!!
You do indeed, look amazing.

Gen said...

Ah! I share all those same feelings Sarah and I'm only 11 weeks pregnant!... my second though. It all happens faster the second time. I think those jeans would make me feel better ; )
Cheers,
Gen

So remember those moment well :-) They are normal with someone else renting the majority of your body.

You look fab, fab, fab!

I think I'll be copying the 'tomato' outfit in a non-mat version.

Thanks so much for adding my party to your list of visits. I hope you pop by and share on Saturday too!

Sarah (my yellow house) said...

You are looking so lovely! What 'they' say about having a glow is so true with you. :)

I lived all day in my husband's XL t-shirts when I was pregnant...it was NOT a good look.

Enjoy these days ~
Sarah

Kathy said...

You look lovely! Enjoy your pregnancy - when I look back at the fashion when I was pregnant - hideous! Good thing I was so happy being pregnant!

This is all good solid movin' forward type of thinking that you have got going here. I travel a lot so these posts keep me thinking about how I can shake it up a bit in the wardrobe department too!

xoxo the egg out west.

Richella said...

You look absolutely beautiful! You make pregnancy look awesome, to tell the truth. No need for butterflies in your tummy!

I have my first ever girl crush. You are beautiful and funny and I LOVE your blog. I adore modern country style and have not found any other blogs dedicated to it. I look at lots of decor/design blogs but most of them require me to cherry pick what I like. Yours gives me images of rooms I would happily copy in total. My biggest dilemma is that I am equally attracted to a modern country/french country aesthetic with layers of netural colours AND a totally bohemian/gyspy style with colour running wild! Must be because I'm a gemini!

Loo xx from Jumbles and Pompoms said...

Nooooo wobbliness missus. Your utterly gorgeous. xx

It is kind of disconcerting to feel a little like a science experiment when you're pregnant. All the changes are for a good cause, but it's still a little much. I totally get that--not only do I get a bum to match my bump, but I also get a weird pregnancy skin pigmentation under my eyes and on my upper lip (it looks something like a freckle mustache--not my favorite). I just had to remind myself to be grateful for the great skin and hair that pregnancy brings me and ignore the rest. You look gorgeous, though! Besides, if the rest of you didn't change a little, your baby wouldn't be able to be healthy and happy. It's worth it--and you'll get back to normal. Until then, enjoy the va-va-voom :).

Blondie's Journal said...

This is a very cute outfit and you look beautiful. Later, you will look back at these photos and smile!!

XO,
Jane

lizzybradbury said...

You look lovely in these pictures - Real pretty! I think because of your blonde hair that white looks very gorgeous on you - Seriously, how have you kept so trim - May you lend me your secrets (don't promise to give them back) do you go to the gym regularly? Pilates? Eating salads all day long? - I must know because you look FABULOUS!

p.s. You rock the pregnant bod - no need for any worrying ;-)

Rachie @ A Chi Chi Affair said...

You look amazing!

michelle said...

you are such a sassy and sweet pregnant girl! I love this outfit and I can understand the feeling of trying to dress yourself while your body is changing, that is why I gave in or gave up and wore my two pairs of knickers and big sweatshirts!! ;)
xoxoxo

thedorsetfinca said...

This outfit is FAB. You look extremely chic. No wobbles/butterflies needed! x

Kay dancingbrushpainting.blogspot.com said...

Awwww, Sarah, you're lovely! And I love how being pregnant and SHOWING that you're pregnant has changed since I was expecting (31 years ago) when maternity fashions were designed by Omar the Tent Maker. It's a great series, and fun to see you modeling.

Kristen said...
