A whole different kind of wardrobe

14May13

For a whole different kind of body!

Bolero 1

With a growing bump (officially halfway through the pregnancy now!), I need to reassess what works with my changing proportions. The New Look silhouette is definitely out for a while!

To focus on the advantages, I now have boobs! I am experimenting with some styles that I have never tried before and that could potentially be worked into my post-maternity wardrobe as well. This bolero is a case in point. Not at all something I would have looked at before, generally preferring tailored styles, but I saw it on ebay and figured it might balance out the expanding curves on my lower body.

(Not the most flattering photo, but it shows the bump better and made me realise that I should not pull this thing taut.)

Also, I really need cardigans that work, full stop, and that in my book should include the possibility of buttoning up. Exhibit A: it is mid-May here and FREEZING. Today I wore a woolly scarf and knee length boots (thank goodness my feet haven’t started expanding yet) to accessorise my coat. Exhibit B: I am prone to feeling cold even when the rest of the world walks around in T-shirts.

Ismét új ruhatárra van szükségem, ezúttal az újonnan formálódó alakomhoz! Meglehetősen lassan halad a gyűjtögetés, de az előnyök közé kell sorolom, hogy olyan darabokkal is kísérletezek, amikre ezelőtt rá nem néztem volna. Mind például ez a boleró. Megláttam, és úgy gondoltam, kipróbálom, hátha kiegyensúlyozza a gömbölyödő alsótestemet.
