Wearing: Megan Nielsen wrap cardigan, Sass and Bide corduroys (refashioned to be maternity jeans), Jessica Simpson boots, Mimco headband
I know a lot of you have been asking for examples of more ways to wear my wrap cardigan, so I thought I’d share another little one I came up with. This seriously is the best cardi in the world… I simply took the two bottom corners and tied them behind my back, then tucked the knot under, and voila – some kind of awesome cross over top!! After looking at these photos I’ve realised that I could also have tucked in that dangling bit of fabric in the front for a slightly different look… but I still like it this way. If you haven’t already downloaded the tutorial you can get it here.
Even better I feel like it goes really nicely with my refashioned maternity pants. In case you’ve forgotten, I took a pair of really comfy corduroys and transformed them into maternity pants.

Funnily enough, looking back at the photos in that tutorial I can see that I was still quite morning sick… shudder… so glad to be over all of that now!!
Unfortunately after taking these photos we went out for a coffee and I fell over whilst holding Bunny, and pulled pretty much every muscle in my already stretched and strained body. sigh. I guess desperately trying to protect her and the baby was more than I could physically handle. Lots of crying. About 2 seconds after I’d stopped crying my hubby turned to me and said “Ok so no more high heels till the baby comes ok?”. big sigh. Then more crying as I realised the reality of being banned from wearing heels (I’m pregnant I cry for pretty much everything). Then I remembered I fell over at the exact same time in my last pregnancy… and was banned from heels after that point too. even bigger sigh. So I guess I’m learning a lesson the hard way… after 7 mths my centre of gravity is just too crazy for high heels. The real tragedy is that I’m actually totally awesome at walking in high heels, and these spills are ruining my reputation! I know that sounds like an odd thing to say, but I’ve been wearing heels since I was really young and I’ve never ever had an issue with them. Walking or running, through rain, over cobble stones, going uphill, downhill, stairs, standing all day, over long distance, I’ll take them any height… whatever, I can do it. Except apparently when I’m pregnant. It’s totally rocking my world… Pathetic aren’t I?!
But don’t worry, I really feel fine now and I’ve been to the doctor and everything is totally ok, little boy is pretty well protected in there!!
