There are certain rules for how pregnant women should dress, it’s supposedly prudent to choose dark colours and wear lots of stretch jersey. I have rejected these rules as they are restrictive and boring; Bretton stripes and body-con dresses are just not for me. Just because I’m pregnant, I see no reason why my style should be drab. Also, the thought of tight clothes right now makes me feel a bit sick. This ruffled dress by ASOS does not comply with sartorial conventional wisdom, but I care not. It reminds me of Gucci’s SS17 collection, which I rather like. I’ve paired it with blue velvet boots that I found in my local charity shop.
