The Jumper Dress

Going to the local gastropub  to meet a gang of friends for Sunday lunch calls for an outfit that expands. I know I’m not meant to eat for two, but my appetite has definitely increased since becoming pregnant and I can finish off a large plateful of roast chicken with all the trimmings with no hesitation at all!

I bought this dress from House of Fraser when they were having a sale and I’d just found out I was pregnant. I hoped it would see me through different stages of pregnancy and it’s coping well so far with my little 13 week bump. A good belt distracts the eye from lumps and bumps and my one has studs, adding an extra edge to the outfit. Just because I’m pregnant, it doesn’t mean I have to give up my love of studs and gold!

I’m a big fan of black with a subtle touch of gold, which is why I brought out the Michael Kors Middleton handbag – a Valentine’s Day gift from my fiance that’s lasted well. It’s out of season now, but Selfridges has a Michael Kors handbag that’s very similar [Greenwich leather bucket bag – Selfridges – £315 ] The boots are super comfy, which is a must in pregnancy, and the magpie in me loves the gold buckles at the back.

What are you wearing for weekend lunch dates?
