Mini Bow Dress

Dress - Asos
Heels - sold out (similar and here)

This was another dress I considered wearing to a recent wedding I went to. I love the big bow detail, this dress gives me major prom vibes, I felt really young and playful in it.

As I mentioned in my previous post I'm still getting used to my postpartum body, so as much as I love how I looked in this dress, I decided to keep it and wear it to a future event, I'm not quite ready for tight dresses just yet.

Yellow Asos Skater Dress

Dress - Asos
Heels - Prettylittlethings (here, here)

Hello my lovely readers, I'm back on the blog, bump-free! My beautiful baby Yara was born on June 18th and it's been a beautiful whirlwind ever since! being a 2nd-time mum has surprisingly been a lot easier on me emotionally, mentally and physically.  I will definitely do a blog post on it very soon.

So this is my 9 week postpartum body, I'm going to be honest with you, I felt so uncomfortable at first.  I still have a lot of baby weight to lose, about 30 pounds roughly, so I'm still getting used to feeling confident in this weight while I work to lose it.

That being said I'm enjoying dressing up again and feeling beautiful, I'm so much kinder to myself this time around and I know bumming around in T-shirt and sweats while looking after a baby can really take it's a toll on your mental.  As simple as it sounds, dressing up once in a while really does help to lift your spirits.

This dress is perfect for hiding a postpartum bump, any type of bump to be honest! basically if you're going out to eat and don't want to worry about a food baby this dress is perfect!  

This was one of my options for a wedding I went to, I love how girly it is and how much the yellow pops on my skin!  I have included this dress in a haul I recently filmed so you can see how it moves in real-time! make sure you head over and subscribe on Youtube, my channel is Reginalondonblog.

Birthday Outfit

Earrings - Prettylittlething

Hello Lovelies,  I feel like I haven't blogged in ages, but I have been very active on my Instagram during my whole pregnancy, so I guess I have been micro-blogging?. Be sure to follow me @reginalondonblog to keep updated, especially after I give birth, as insta-stories is so much quicker and instant.

I'm now 40 weeks pregnant, 4 days past my due date to be exact.  I was a week past my due date with my first pregnancy and remember how frustrating it was.  So this time around I'm trying to be a lot calmer and patience but the feeling of frustration always creep up regardless of how positive I try to be.  But she will be here soon so I'm telling myself to enjoy the sleep I have actually been having because newborn life means team no sleep!

I wore this dress back in May for my birthday, I think I was 35 weeks pregnant.  I love this dress so much!!  I wasn't too sure about the neon colour at first, as I try not to buy trendy items but once it arrived I knew I would wear it many times over, especially after pregnancy.  The material is thick but soft, as you can see it fit my curves and bump nicely, I also stuck to my prepregnancy size which is a 10 and it had great stretch to it.  I felt amazing this day, this might have been my fave pregnancy look.

Wedding Anniversary Outfit

Brown Dress - Prettylittlething

Happy Monday everyone! I hope the day has started off positively for you all.  I'm actually waiting on someone to come and fix my broken down boiler and also a tow truck to pick up my broken down car! not so positive but hey that's real life and it's ok, other than that my Monday has been ok.

I wore this super gorgeous dress to my 4th wedding anniversary dinner on Friday,  if your an OG reader you would remember my wedding post, how time flies, it feels like just yesterday we got married.

I wanted to feel really sexy and this dress did just the job! I don't own anything brown but I feel like this colour really compliments my skin tone, this could just be my new favourite colour to shop for?

Statement Pieces

Trousers - Boohoo
Blouse - Boohoo
Heels- Missguided - old

I'm not magically pushing in my pregnant stomach in these photos I promise! I took these photos back in October when I was about 6 weeks pregnant and I don't know why I didn't post them as I thought this outfit was super cute! I remember feeling so self-conscious of my belly, which is silly as I didn't have one, but when you're trying to get past the 'safe' 12-week mark you try your very best not to give away any pregnancy hints!

I'm not really a low cut top type of person, I'm too paranoid to go low cut, I like to know everything is intact and my boob doesn't accidentally fall out lol. But I really like the elegance of this blouse, it's sexy without being too revealing.  I paired it with these super cute trousers and I love how the belt makes a bit of a statement.
