23 weeks and I’m now so big it’s seriously getting in the way. I stopped cycling into work last week, I just don’t have the energy to speed up even for short burst and it was taking me as long as getting the bus and I felt like I was getting in the way of drivers all the time. I might start again once the weather gets a bit better, 4 months without exercise isn’t ideal. The good thing about stopping cycling though is that combined with having a new car I have finally overcome my irrational fear of driving – previously I’d only drive if there was no other option. It’s something I’ve always been a bit embarrassed about really.

And since I’m not cycling any more, I also don’t need to wear trousers, so I think I will get by on just that one pair of jeans. It’s actually really nice to just dress once in the morning and then be done with it rather than having to cart clothes around and get changed at work. And to be able to carry a handbag rather than a rucksack! This is a dress I bought new when pregnant with Milo. It’s probably my fave maternity dress, even though the colours are not exactly my usual.

I also had a haircut, hence close up. Not that it looks any different really, just shorter and hopefully less damaged.

Outfit stats:
* dress – Jo Jo Maman Bebe * shoes – clarks * coat – asos * bag scaramanga *

      Thanks! I don’t feel it tbh, I can really not move much/with any sort of speed any more and it’s not the funnest thing in the world. But all for a good cause!

      Thank you! It’s one of only two lipsticks I own. I do love a bright red lip!

      Thanks! It didn’t last sadly, but I love it when it’s freshly blowdried by the hairdresser!
