Harlequin

Hello there! So these pics were taken about two weeks again when I was 23 weeks pregnant. I am getting into that awkward phase where lots of the clothes in my cupboard isn’t wearable anymore because of my growing belly. I think I will chat a bit more about that in a future blog post. My pregnancy is still going very well. I have been lucky to be able to exercise throughout my pregnancy and I haven’t stopped yet. I am dreading the day when I will like I will have to stop. My doctor says that I can exercise as long as I am feeling up for it. So we will have to see! I feel that keeping active is very important at this time in my life. I think that it helps with my mood (yay endorphins!) and it helps with my energy levels.

The pregnancy symptoms are starting to creep in but it’s really nothing hectic. The most noticeable symptom is getting full very quickly and feeling bloated. I think I can handle that :)

Expecting

Introducing the baby bump! :) If you don’t follow my blog on social media then this is probably a bit of a surprise. Well, I am 22 weeks pregnant now and I am loving it. I have been very fortunate to have a virtually issue-free pregnancy so far. No morning sickness, no aches and pains, no cravings or any of the normal pregnancy woes. This has allowed me to really enjoy being pregnant and marvel at my baby bump! Rueben and I are very excited to meet our little boy who is due in November. I know our lives are going to change but I am looking forward to it. He hasn’t even been born yet and I am so in love with him already. The feelings can only become stronger, right?

I hope to keep up blogging so I can document this journey and also share it with you.

A moment for this skirt

So I return from my inexcusable impromptu blog break as if I even needed one in the first place! Once again my priorities got skewed and I become a bit overwhelmed with everything that I had on my plate. I made a to-do list and moved on and now I am back!

I thought I’d express my love for this skirt once again hence the blog title. It was such a good buy and I always feel special when I wear it. The fit and colours brighten up any outfit. The quality also feels excellent for a skirt under R200. I really hope that Anisa Mpungwe does a third collaboration with Mr Price so I can buy more of her designs at affordable prices. Maybe I’ll spoil myself and actually get something from her Loin Clothes and Ashes label one day. Fingers crossed.

Bows and Dots

So the cold has taken over Cape Town. I am writing this blog post while wearing a fleece gown and leggings. You know us Capetonians can’t deal with the cold!

I wore this outfit on one of our warmer days and I really hope there will be days like that before Winter really comes. I am such a sucker for a pretty dress! I bought this one in Bangkok. I love the cute print, dropped waist and the relaxed fit.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! Keep warm!
