Maternity Style | A new outfit formula

Y

ou all know me, guys: once I find an outfit formula I like, I beat it into the ground, so here I am following up Wednesday’s “midi dress, sweater and ankle boots” outfit with a midi skirt, sweater and ankle boots.

So, that’s TOTALLY different, yeah?

Well, OK, it’s not, really, but this particular combination is just really easy to wear right now, and if the sweater in question can have some kind of slogan on the front, then so much the better, because, when it comes to slogan sweaters, I. Am. Addicted. I just can’t stop buying the things – and you can’t make me, so there.

This one is from Next, and it’s another one of those non-maternity pieces that I’m still managing to fit over the bump – just. The skirt, meanwhile, IS maternity, and I’m wearing it with another current obsession of mine: sock boots. Yes, boots that look like socks. I love ’em. See, the thing is, I’ve always had a bit of an issue with ankle boots, in that they tend to be too wide for my ankles/calves, so they all end up looking a bit like wellies on me, and, if I try to wear them with trousers or jeans, they catch on the hem, and make me want to cry.

These ones, on the other hand, fit under trousers AND work with skirts/dresses, and that makes them the new loves of my (fashion) life. I honestly never thought I’d see the day when I’d be using the words “sock” and “boots” to describe an item of footwear – and LIKE it – but hey: this year has been so completely surreal in every single respect that me wearing sock boots is actually one of the LEAST strange things that’s happened all year. Who woulda thunk it, huh?

    Those boots look exactly like what I am looking for. I will have to see if I can find some over here. I have nearly been crying, trying to buy boots for the past 2 winters. Every single boot is either an ankle boot (and I mean ankle, it stops right on my ankles, which doesn’t even count as a boot in my book), or they’re knee high. I love the look of knee high boots, but on my petite legs they end up more like thigh high and ridiculous. The only mid length ones I have been able to find are all so wide that I might as well be wearing gumboots. Off to look for some sock boots now!

      These are exactly the issues I always have – boot shopping is so complicated compared to shoes!

I took this photo on the little tram that takes you from the Magic Kingdom car park to the transportation centre: I’d give pretty much anything to be back there on this rainy Monday morning ...👪

Currently inhaling my third coffee of the morning: I’ve been averaging about 6 hours sleep per night this week, thanks to a certain someone deciding that sleep is for the weak, and that he’ll just be getting up two hours earlier than usual 🤦‍♀️ Really hoping it’s just a phase: while it’s going on, I’m not fit to be seen, though, so here’s a photo from our visit to the beautiful Drummond Castle Gardens last week - such a beautiful place! 🏰 .

AD | So sad to be checking out of @highlandheatherlodges this morning: we’ve had such an amazing time here - it’s a beautiful place, with so much to do nearby, that we’ve really only scratched the surface: although that *could* be something to do with all the time we spent in the hot tub, obviously 😉 Thanks for having us, guys - we’ll definitely be back!

AD | We’re spending a few days at @highlandheatherlodges in beautiful Perthshire, for what Terry is optimistically referring to as his ‘birthday week’. (I say ‘optimistically’ - we’re only here for three days, and his birthday was yesterday, but don’t stop believing, Terry!)⁣
⁣
There’s a hot tub for us and a playpark for Max, so needless to say, we’re having a fantastic time, and I’m already dreading having to leave. Today’s big question: can I pass as an under-12, so I qualify for a pony ride at the nearby wildlife centre? 🤔 (On second thoughts, don’t answer that one...)⁣
