My Pregnancy and Motherhood Style

July 15, 2012

My style has definitely changed from before I was pregnant, to when I had Blake, till now.

Before being pregnant with Blake, I wore whatever I wanted – mostly tight clothings, short shorts, tube tops and dresses. After I got pregnant, I started to wear looser clothing, and even attempted to purchase some maternity wear, which were all too big for me. So I gave up, and bought dresses and tops that flared out, and are not fitted tightly. Not only will I be able to wear them when I’m pregnant, I can still wear them after I give birth! No wastage at all!

The only consistent item in my entire wardrobe is my trusty pair of havaianas, and a pair of flats which I will usually buy after I have confirmed I am pregnant (this time round, it’s a pair from Hush Puppies), for formal events and work. This pair is to replace all the heels and wedges that I would not be able to wear during pregnancy.

Anyway, I was thinking about clothes and photos the other day, and how when I was carrying Blake, I managed to take some nice snapshots of my pregnant self, at home and out. I quite enjoyed being able to look back on how I looked when I was pregnant.

But with baby number two, I hardly have any photos of my pregnant self, except some unglamorous ones taken at the swimming pool. So I decided to do a mini-DIY-photoshoot at home, while Blake was at school!

I picked out some of my current favourite pieces – some old, some new – and found a spot in the house (away from all the mess!) to set up my camera gorillapod, and the DIY photoshoot was on!

Other than dresses, I sometimes wear jeans and shorts for gatherings and work. No images for shorts though.
