This week autumn has made his entrance with a lot, like really a lot, of rain! Good for the farmers, for us a little bit less fun. Don’t misunderstand me, I loooove autumn season! It’s my favorite. Because when the weather’s crap outside, you can come home and switch from your rainy clothes to your cosy pyjamas and grab your blanket. I absolutely love the home-feeling you get when it’s autumn and winter season, that’s something I miss for instance during the summer season.
So today was another rainy day. I concluded for myself to leave the comfy jeggings behind and go for something more dressed up. As you could read in my latest post, I was lately not feeling very well and I was only going for comfort clothes. It made me feel bad about myself, like unconfident. But again, like I mentioned in my latest post, it’s all completely normal. I am not feeling well, the first months of pregnancy are very heavy and whenever someone feels sick they don’t feel like dressing up in high heels and tight dresses. Anyways it’s not like I did that before lol, but somehow today I planned that I’d go for a feminine and high heeled look. A look that won’t scream: COMFORTTTTT. Y’all know what I mean.
And I did my makeup as well to fit the image I was going for. I went for a subtle smokey eye with eyeliner, not much difference from my work makeup look, but just a little more smokey eyeshadow blend than I do normally. Secondly, I went for a dress. A tight dress. Nothing fancy – a dress I got from a friend of my mom. Today I was really not even wearing my own clothes, lol, I just got them from friends 😀 Like the long dark blue cardigan (okay, that was my only comfort choice today, guilty) I got from my collegue from work. I even wore panties, but of course I had to throw them away at the end of the day because they were already with holes on my toes – classical women issue. I picked my taupe cowboy style boots (also a gift, lol, from my mom) to finish the outfit.
What I was wearing:
- CARDIGAN: In Wear, from my collegue ❤
- DRESS: Pianura Studio, from a friend of my mom’s ❤
- BOOTS: Sac d’Anvers old collection, from my mom ❤
- Bag: Bought it once from Wish, cutest bag ever
- Earrings: Zalando
- Watch: Gift from Yves Rocher 😀
- Makeup look: L’Oréal BB cream, Eyeshadow palette from I Heart Makeup Chocolat, Bourjois Eyeliner, Essence Lash Princess Mascara (all time favorite) & Lottie eyebrow pencil.
I like the combination, it’s not trend sensitive, it’s just a look that will always work. Whether you’re a grown-up woman, a mom-to-be or already a mommy. Whether you go for drinks or for a casual dinner. This look fits every women, that’s why I like it. And to be honest, it really isn’t so uncomfortable as it looks. I understand now why pregnant women like dresses. I guess I’ll be one of the dresses-types when I have a full belly. I have some other great news, since yesterday my belly popped out 😀 I notice a difference, even someone who’ll see my belly for the first time will notice that it isn’t flat. I’m almost 9 weeks now (Tuesday will be the start of my 9th week). It’s very quick and I’m quite surprised I notice it so fast but I read online that it’s different for every woman. Some won’t even notice a belly after 5 months, others will see it immediately.
Today my man and I went to a fries house or a chip cafetaria (however you call it in English, it’s a typical dining place in Belgium). The place belongs to the uncle of my boyfriend, and we had a blast. We ate good food and had great company, my boyfriend’s mom was there too. It was a lovely afternoon.
Hope you’ll enjoy this look ladies. Feel free to join the conversation in the comment form below. Thank you for your attention and I’ll see you next time. Don’t forget to check us on social media, I’d love to be friends!
