A little deviation from the usual from the Monday – Wednesday – Friday posting schedule, because today is Everybody, Everywear day. The theme this month is colour blocking, which is the one theme I can do without any notice at all, because I’m always colour blocking. It’s a way of life for me! This is not actually that great an example, because there’s only two colours really, but it’s what I’ve got just now.
The cardigan is new, from a posh maternity shop, on rue Danseart, a street full of little independent designer shops in the Flemish part of Brussels. That street is a bit like what I imagined Antwerp to be like. I really love the colour (oddly, I’ve never owned anything mustard before) and the triangle texture of this cardie, and I think it will be totally wearable when I’m bump free too. Unfortunatley I had to take the cardigan back to the shop yesterday though, because one of the seams went into holes in three places after just four wears and no washes. They reassured me that no one else has ever returned this model with this problem before, so it maybe was just a one off. So they’ve ordered me an identical one from their shop in Ghent, which I can pick up on Saturday. I will wear it every day straight to put it to the test. Fingers crossed it’s not a general problem with those cardigans, because I do think it looks great, and it’s comfy.
In bump watch news, this is week 17. I had a big growth spurt in week 13-14 just after I told everyone, but it doesn’t seem to have grown much since. Though I guess it has, because I was sitting watching the telly with my trouser button undone last night. I bought some maternity jeans but trying to hold off putting them on for as long as I can. I’ll be bored of them soon enough!
