A closer look at the details;
I had so much fun today shooting with Jonathan from lululemon. He is the proud owner of Guest Etc and asked to feature me this week. Having worked for lululemon for 6+ years, I’m still a big fan of their clothing – which is no secret if you’ve been following my OOTD posts.
Here are some of the ‘runners up’ photos from today’s shoot;
We welcomed in Spring today with Toronto Yoga Mamas (even though it felt like anything but Spring outside!). These camo Wunder Unders are still one of my all time faves and they spark a conversation every time I wear them.
Last Sunday we had our first taste of Spring, it was +12 and sunny and it was so refreshing!
Ok once again, Zara everything; Jeans as previously mentioned, striped zip back top, and leather jacket. Boots from Fiorentini & Baker, sunnies from Tom Ford.
I ordered a leather jacket from Zara but it came in so slim in the shoulders I didn’t think that would be conducive to life as a new mom. So I headed to Zara to try on other sizes and also found an alternative style that I think I’m going to exchange for.
Here’s what I ordered (in a better fitting size) – and yes I plan to wear this open over the belly this Spring, possibly layering a lightweight hooded sweatshirt underneath. And also in the fall again – with a baby carrier underneath 🙂
Today I’m wearing one of those extra long cool racerbacks underneath, with my favourite wunder unders – they are made of a textured looser knit fabric that is more comfortable around my belly than the regular luon. Both from lululemon. And also a lightweight wool cardigan from J Crew.
I have to say I was a bit dissappointed that I couldn’t just exchange in the store – apparently if it’s the same style i could have but for a different style I can’t. So now i have to send the return back, wait for the refund, and then re-order. Much too complicated and time consuming Zara Canada!
This was one of those days where I had a million things to do and the day started off with prenatal yoga (at Toronto Yoga Mamas) and continued from there. So at the base of it all is my tried, tested, and true lululemon items. I found that early in my second trimester my wunder unders were no longer comfortable around my waist and ended up picking up the Skinny Will Pant. I love love love how as I’ve grown the high waist (which I folded under my belly early in the third trimester) now supports my lower belly as I’ve increased in size. I wear the waistband all the way up and have cut out the drawstring (it just adds a strange bulge which no pregnant belly benefits from). And my other go-to is just a basic tank, i thrive on the Cool Racerback (sidenote: I can’t see the Long version of these online but in stores they are often available in black and white in a longer version, these are my preferred length right now because you get a little extra bum coverage).
Layering is the key these days, it’s still cold here and my internal temp is all over the map. So today I tossed a chunky knit sweater from Zadig & Voltaire over top, and my go-to boots are always from Fiorentini & Baker. (They make everything better).
I promise the quality of pics will improve! I don’t have a full length mirror and rely on the hubs for the full length shots – we’re working on it…
I just want to point out again that I have on Zero ‘maternity’ clothing, and I’m just about 24 weeks along here. This took me from yoga to coffee, through errands, home for a nap :), and then dinner with my husband in a trendy restaurant.
What can I say? He’s a well dressed man.
The socks are always coordinated. He actually didn’t want me to show his socks because they weren’t as ‘fun’ as his usual style. He rarely wears solid colours, almost always a pattern of some sort. You’ll see.
So many options for a first post, it seemed inappropriate to talk about anything other than what I wore as MrsContent went live… So this is me at 23 weeks preggo, refusing to wear expensive and/or dowdy maternity clothes. Zara … Continue reading
