Red, white and blue and ethical

This is the outfit that goes with the glasses picture from Monday. It’s what i wore on my first day back in Scotland. I’m wearing the clogs I bought myself for my birthday, and my new maternity jeans. They took a bit of getting used to, because the jeansy bit on them is so low, below the line of my pants*, so for a while I felt like I was flashing. But I soon got used to it. They are super comfy, they feel more like leggings really, they are so stretchy.

Since this is kind of a red white and blue outfit, and everything except the jeans and shoes is from the charity shop, I am using this as my contribution for the ethical fashion bloggers challenge where the theme is olympics. To be honest, GB is only my second choice, really I’m supporting Germany, but I do love the way Britain is wiping the floor and holding its own against countries more than 22 (China) and 6 (USA) times it’s population, so I feel I can claim the colours.

The brooches were a gift from a girl in my stitch and bitch group in Brussels, she gave me both a boy and a girl one because I didn’t know if it was a boy or a girl at the time.

Outfit stats:
* jacket – charity shop * blouse – charity shop * maternity jeans – h&m * shoes – torpantoffeln * brooches – gift * bag – charity shop *

* underpants, obviously, not trousers.

    I love your Team GB outfit. The badges are really cute. I had a pair of those jeans and wore them almost all of the time as they are so comfy and fit so well.

    Yay jeans! I’ve always felt stumped on how to style red and white and blue together. It always feels patriotic to me and like I’m dressed as a theme or something.

    I love the photo of you looking up. The shoes should serve you well throughout the pregnancy and the buttons are darling.
