I’m so glad that a couple of days ago the weather was nicely warm and I had a chance to take these photos because we expect cold, gray days and nasty sleet today:(

If you follow my blog you know that almost all of my looks are based on incorporating non maternity items, during my pregnancy I got only 3 pairs of skinny jeans and 2 tops, so I was super excited to collaborate with Isabella Oliver to showcase something from their maternity collection! I created the relaxed but yet stylish look be pairing this kimono maternity top with my favorite white jeans, cardigan and comfy flats. The kimono top is really comfortable and perfect not only during pregnancy but also nursing and post pregnancy. Thank you Isabella Oliver for such a great gift!

By the way, we had a baby shower yesterday and feels that my baby bump is twice bigger from all the delicious treats we had:) I’ll share photos from the baby shower with you later!
