Orange Is The New Black

This is my first time mentioning it the blog, and to be honest, the reason this blog post is up several weeks late, is because I was unsure about whether I was gona mention it on here yet.
Well here we go...
I could put this a number of ways, but I'm sure you can guess. Yep! I'm expecting!

As a result, my body started changing this Summer, but it's taken me some getting used to.
I've always dreamed of being a "perfect 10" but the reality is I'm usually a size 6.
However being pregnant has changed my whole shopping experience, so I thought I'd share some of the new looks I'm currently experimenting with.
Under the influence of Summer I found myself really drawn to bold splashes of colour. These River Island trousers (with elasticated waistband) are probably the best pair of trousers I've bought this year.

I like the colour combination of orange and blue, but until now the only blue tops I owned were either skin tight or cropped. So I treated myself to this new one, from the H&M sale.
It's long enough and loose enough to comfortably cover the bump (for now), and the crochet pattern gives a bit more life to what I'd consider quite a conservative cut.

Well, now the news is out, I'll be back very soon with a few other looks that got me through this Summer.
