My favorite collection from NYC spring 2013 fashion week. I am really feeling the patchwork denim and the leopard blazer.
Now that I’m expecting very soon I find myself being more and more restricted in every form possible – clothes, food intake (no, I do not believe in the saying ‘eat for two’, it is a myth REALLY!) activities (I got scolded by the husband for making the bed the other day and for bending down to pick up some flour sitting at the bottom of the grocers’ shelf) and even bodily movements (it’s been ages since I’ve last had a proper morning stretch).
So I find myself at home for most of the time on my laptop and in my pjs, not cleaning the house and definitely not doing the laundry, daydreaming about a whole bunch of stuff. What do other pregnant women do when they are close to popping and unemployed?! Any ideas? Help a girl out.

I’m super excited because I’ve just been given the green light to start planning our new home and I’ve been obsessed with interior magazines and websites ever since! I’m very much a homebody so it has to be just the way I like it. The husband is going to have very little say in how my, I mean, “our” home looks like. I have so many ideas in my head right now it’s not even funny – the husband would be very worried if he knew what was in my head. One thing for sure, I definitely want to incorporate velvet into my living room.. either a full blown sofa or armchair.
Dinner tonight at Chynna with the in-laws. I find that my enthusiasm to dress is slowly being taken over by the tempting lure of stretchy yoga pants, oversized t-shirts and sweats. They’re just so darn comfortable! Having said that I’m trying to maximise what little time I have left with my skinnies whilst I can thanks to this neat trick some pregnant women through google taught me – that is to just leave the buttons and zipper undone and tie a ribbon/rubberband/rope through the button hole and loop it over the jean button. Genius!
Super obsessed with burgundy right now. Maybe because I’m thinking of fall. It’s such a versatile colour and I believe it’s flattering on most skin tones. Right now I’m itching, no, dying! to wear a pair of skinny crops. They would probably be my first indulgence after confinement. My favorites:
IRO jeans, Isabel Marant pumps, Miu Miu blazer
Ok, I know. I seem to disappear and reappear as I please. It is unfair and perhaps irresponsible of me but hey, I’m sure there were other things on the web that entertained you lot for the past 5 months or so. I suppose an explanation is due right about now – well, I’m heavily (well, not quite) pregnant and I will be expecting a beautiful baby boy sometime in November (hopefully) so blogging wasn’t exactly my main priority then. But today marks the first day that I find myself awake and staring jealously at my husband who was (still is) fast asleep next to me whilst I tossed and turned to find a comfortable position in hopes of doing the same. Clearly wasn’t happening. Third trimester’s classical backaches are kicking in at an unforgiving speed.
So here I am. Blogging again.
I did, however, treat myself to some buttermilk pancakes beforehand.
