Oh, how time flies! Since I posted my second look in collaboration with Marks & Spencer three weeks have past, and in that short amount of time my lovely baby bump has grown. I have officially begun my ‘Pregnancy without Maternity Challenge’ which means I shall go through the whole nine months without any maternity wear, and I’m calling the segment ‘Baby Mama Lookbook’.
As most of my readers know, I often choose key wardrobe pieces based on versatility. I like to be able to carry an outfit from the office to a press event, transition a look from day to night, and right now it has become my mission to find apparel that will work with and without my pregnant belly.
So as I was browsing through the Marks & Spencer’s new Spring 2014 collection, I found this navy blue empire cut dress with a metal plate tie-back belt, that strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and elegance.
It is made of soft stretch jersey material that will mould to my figure as my belly starts to grow and though the dress has a modest cut, the breathable fabric makes it good enough for summer days as well. What’s more, this dress can take me from a daytime brunch to a dinner party, as well as from work to any blog-related extracurricular activity in the evening.
I paired an understated skin tone clutch and court shoes with the navy blue dress, to create a minimalistic but polished third look.
