Warmer days are coming (even if we will have to wait, temperatures are not so good lately…) so I am buying lots of tops and shirts, like every Spring.
This year, I concentrate my purchases on bohemian oversize shirts or baby-doll tops I will be able to wear when my belly will be bigger. Personally, I don’t want to invest in pregnancy pieces of clothe I wouldn’t be able to wear in a few months!
My Louizon Paris embroidered shirt
I wear a Louizon Paris shirt, an ethnics and casual style brand. At Louizon, the pieces are so comfy and timeless. What I appreciate above all is the ethics of the brand as all the collections are “made in France”.
Asos Petite Maternity pregnancy jeans
Two weeks ago, I talked about my difficulty to find pregnancy pieces of jeans in my size. Since, I have also tested Gap Maternity jeans. On the e-shop, they seem perfect and there is so much choice : skinny or bootcut designs. I have decided to try them, I have ordered three different cuts and the conclusion is the same than the others brands. They size so big (large from the waist to the wrist), the cut is not nice and the denim neither…
I was completely depressed after that (because H&M Maternity jeans are awesome but the small sizes are sold out and there is no restocking), so I have ordered one more time at Asos Petite Maternity. Compared to last time, I should have put on weight because the jeans fits, surprisingly! I would have preferred it more skinny and tighter but I can’t be too demanding!
So for now, I only wear Asos Petite Maternity and H&M pieces of jeans.
Jewellry to accessorize the outfit : Jour du Mistral earrings and an Alex Bok ring
To accessorize the outfit, I wear earrings from Jour du Mistral. I have already talked about this lovely French brand last year. Jewellry are handmade in France, by the designer Mélanie. She only uses 24 carats gold-plated brass and natural stones.
Concerning the ring, it is made by Alexandra, designer of the brand Alex Bok. Alexandra is a gemologist passionned by stones and jewellry. She makes us travelling in a colorful universe through her collections. I wear the pompon ring made with pink gold plated silver and a moon stone (awesome with its pink reflections).
Have a lovely week, Xxx.
Fashion advice for petites
When you wear an oversize top, the best is to pair it with a tight pants or skirt. Personally, I find my jeans not tights enough but it’s just impossible for me to find the perfect pregnancy jeans. So not to shorten me too much, I wear low boots with a small heel (4 cm).
If you are not pregnant, the best would be to wear a very tight skinny jeans and not to make the hem appear. It’s better to lengthen! And for the shoes, I would have choosen high heels or higher boots (with at least a heal of 8 cm).
