Call me Old Fashioned or Superstitious I had decided to not feature any recently shot Outfit Posts until I could actually announce the Big News. So Mumbai to Melbourne will now be posting Maternity Fashion Posts as well. (shot from Dec 2015- March 2016)
Yes Yes Yes you heard right….we have been recently blessed with our bundle of joy a cute and chubby Baby Boy Reyansh on the 30th of March. Please keep us in your prayers !!
Now you know why I have been quiet on the blog front. I am currently enjoying each moment of motherhood which has been a huge learning curve. Currently I am in baby time mode trying to squeeze this post while the bub is sleeping. I had written the post below before Reyansh was born. I hope you enjoy the first in the series of Maternity Fashion Posts and Bump Style Posts that will be following.
It so happened that I did not start showing a bump till late December 2015 (almost the end of my 2nd trimester and early 3rd trimester) and since then I have had technical and internet issues where I could not post a lot of the posts I shot since October 2015. All the posts on my instagram handle were current however if you notice them now you can see I either cropped the pic so one couldn’t see the bump or they were close up shots.
Since the internet has been up and running I have been posting Outfit posts that I had shot in a chronological order. I did shoot posts since I started showing Mid-December that are still pending. This post that I am featuring today was shot on the 27th of December as we were heading to a Birthday Party.
I could still fit in my regular clothes till Week 30 of my pregnancy. Except for elastic waisted Maternity Work pants and skirt I did not shop for any maternity wear untill then.
Here the theme of the birthday party was Indian so I decided to wear my favourite Anarkali suit that I had styled and got designed back in India in 2014 on my last visit. To the uninitiated Anarkali suits are long tunics that are fitted till the upper waist and then flare below. They may be long or short depending on the preference of the wearer.
This suit has beautiful thread embroidery in green white and purple near the neckline so I teamed the outfit with purple leggings. I also got this Phulkari Dupatta from Chandigard on my last India trip and that went perfectly well with all the colours of the Anarkali.
Keeping the accessories simple with multicoloured statement earrings and a statement ring helped complete the outfit. I kept the face basic with mineral powder and added a deep green eye shadow to bring out the eyes and two layers of mascara to open them up. Lastly a bright purple lip colour helped complete the look.
