Wearing: Stripes, Asian + Belly

I realise it's not Wednesday today, but as I'd dearly love to have my Baby ASAP, maybe these photos will be out of date tomorrow! *wishful thinking*

Hayden said yesterday that this is the Biggest Belly he remembers on me, and looking at these photos, I can see what he means! 41 weeks + horizontal stripes = Big Baby Four!

I do so love my new-to-me thrifted, Asian-inspired jacket. I needed a warm layer that I could wear over Bump and decided a nice jacket was just the ticket, so off to the op-shops I went! I stumbled across this cute black one, with cool green details - one of those colours that always draws my eye. It is made of some type of wool - and that's all I can tell you because it is authentically Asian: I can't read the labels! I just love the collar and the ways the sleeves sit.

I realise that my pants probably don't suit me very well (particularly as I just noticed they seem to be falling down in this pic! Crotch down by knees, anyone?) - they are very wide-legged and certainly made for someone MUCH taller than me (as evidenced by how much I had to cut off the bottom to hem them for me!). BUT they are made from merino wool and are stretchy and warm and still look a bit nicer than track pants! Win win, me thinks.

A new haircut last week has been much appreciated. I like my hair longer sometimes, but I do think I prefer it shorter. I get more volume and I can wear cool earrings! While I lose out on not being able to chuck it in a quick pony-tail in the morning, it only takes me 5 minutes to wet it then blow dry it quickly and it looks 1000% better than a pony-tail!

These are my go-to shoes: plain, black (= goes with everything), slight wedge heel but very comfy to walk in. Just like flats, but better!

Jacket: Op Shop (originally from somewhere in Asia)
Top: K-Mart (bub2b range - so cheap and wearable!)
Merino Pants: Nes
Shoes: No. 1 Shoes
