Orla Keily and black

The first outfit photos in our garden! I haven’t quite cracked it yet, the light was funny and I was rushed and all the photos were taken using slightly different camera settings. I tried to even them out in potatoshop, with let’s say mixed results, if we’re being generous.

The blouse was my third purchase in the autumn from the orla keily for uniqlo collaboration (also, long sleeve tees here and here and here), but pretty much as soon as I bought it I grew too bumpy to wear it. It’s still not quite right, with the gaping bit in the middle of the chest. I’ll have to see if there’s some boob shrinkage post breastfeeding otherwise I’ll sew in a popper and that will hopefully do the trick. I love the blouse though, the material feels lovely and soft and it has a peter pan collar. Unbelievably my first ever peter pan collared thing!

In other outfit news the maternity skirt is becoming a bit too big now! Hurrah, time for normal clothes again! The maternity coat looks fine still though, which really surprises me, I thought it would just be weird without a belly underneath!

Outfit stats:
blouse – orla keily x uniqlo * skirt – jojo maman bebe * boots – clarks originals * earrings – swap *

    You look lovely, that blouse is stunning and the coat looks as fab now as it did with a bump! x

    Das Hemd hat einen richtig genialen Stoff! Aber 3/4 Ärmel sind garnicht meins.

    Yeay for non-maternity clothes. And yes, the coat looks lovely on you. Dave does good work!

    What a great patterned shirt! It must be a relief to be able to fit into more of your old clothes again!

    You are even more beautiful since you are a mother, Franca. You look like a flower in full bloom.

    Orla Kiely does some fabulous prints. That’s a cute top!
    Loving the coat as well, it look warm and comfy and great for layering under.
