Week 38 Maternity Style: Spring Shades

2e3e1_2eJacket: All Saints (for reference: wearing a 6 & before getting pregnant, I would take a 4)ย | Button Down: Mamalicious | Denim: Citizens of Humanity | Flats: Nicholas Kirkwood | Sunglasses: Celine | Handbag: Valentino (smaller version)

I can’t believe tomorrow is April 1st, which for me, means I’m 15 days away from my due date! So crazy and just a few weeks left of “maternity style,” which I can imagine, many of you are probably bored with. Overall, I’m just so thankfulย that I’m still feeling pretty good! I still keep hearing the same thing: “oh! that’s because you’re having a boy!” It really makes me wonder how much truth there is to that theory.

On another note, I *THINK* we got all the new layout/mobile site kinks worked out, but if you’re still seeing anything wonky, let me know. I cannot thank you all enough for your feedback and for emailing me/commenting on any glitches you were seeing. The responses helped tremendously!

Edited to add: I realized I initially put week 37 in my title, but it’s actually week 38!

    Loving this whole look! Those flats are super cute too, I need white flats in my collection.

  • Emma

    Fabulous flats. Your due date is so soon, very excited for you!!!

  • Shadowy_lady

    You look great Helena ๐Ÿ™‚ and i’m not bored of your maternity style because it’s cute

    You may be having a boy but not being tired is not a sign of it. I was full of energy right until my delivery (at 39 weeks) and I had a girl. I did long walks, slept great, swam and did power yoga. I had a high and round belly and only put on 20 lb till the very end. Old waives tales are fun but not accurate ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi, I am a long time reader and I am very happy for you and your hubby. I just had a baby girl last year and I felt great right up to my due date. Dressed my bump up everyday and still wore a full face of makeup :). My fiance and I didn’t tell people the sex of the people and everyone swore we were having a boy. I think how you feel has more to do with you as a person and less to do with the sex of the baby,

  • Keitha

    Also, I wish you nothing but luck with your delivery. I can’t wait to see your honey :).

    Ugh, i’m rolling my eyes about the “because you’re having a boy” comment. So untrue! What does that even mean? Boys can be just as feisty as girls! Anyway, I can’t believe how fast time flies! Can’t wait to hear all about your son! Looking fab as per usual.

    Looking so chic as usual! I liked the white shoes.

    I had a question Helena – what do you do with your old clothes? I have so much stuff in perfectly good condition which I am just bored of. I feel bad throwing it out but get annoyed seeing it in my closet. I am curious to know how you manage (and especially now with your maternity gear!) Thanks!

    • BrooklynBlonde

      Hi! Usually, I end up offering it to friends who are the same size as me (whether it’s shoes or clothes) and the stuff that remains, I donate!

  • Maria

    I love the way you carry your look. It’s so adorable and cute. You are looking mind blowing in this white & blue combination. I’m hoping & wishing for you a happy delivery…!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Helena! Congatulations on your impending due date!

    You mentioned at the beginning of your pregnancy that you were looking into getting a minimizer bra. Did you ever find one that you love? I’ve been on the search for some and cannot find any that don’t look terrible.


  • Maria

    I’m big fan of you. Looking great, as always..

  • KEMI

    The shoes are incredible! Chic and perfect for a day out and about on your feet.
