We started taking these pictures with photographer Ioanna Chatziandreou right when the snow begun to fall. Timing is everything, right. Loved the combination of moody grey with a pair of cropped pants and
the sparkle of some glitter (pimped my shoes with snowflakes yo).
Cashmere mens jumper by Benetton (yes sometimes I shop from the men’s department). Boyfriend wool coat by Clotho. Wool wrap by Anamesa Concept Spot. Glitter boots Bianca Di. On the lips Korres Morello “Burgundy 59”.
The latest wardrobe staple is no other than a stretch bodycon dress by H&M with high neck and zippered side splits that allow even to a mom-to-be to feel a bit sensual. Silver socks also by H&M. Pumps by Sante Shoes.
Oversized outwear and a pair of thigh-high boots. Yes sir, I can boogie.
Bodycon dress by French Connection and block-heeled over the knee boots by Sante. Mom’s vintage cashmere coat
from the early 90s is back from the upper closet for good.
On the lips, Dolce & Gabbana “Dolce Inferno 333” lipstick. “Spiked” eyebrow pencil and “Extended Play Gigablack” mascara both by MAC Cosmetics.
If you’re fashion-sensitive the most common wardrobe fear when you first get pregnant is that you will have to abandon your personal style. The threat of jumbo loose slouchy dresses that make you look double your size is everywhere and you might think that your stylistic choices are quite limited. Of course comfort is everything (you’ll find out yourself that you will just cannot stand anything too tight or not cozy enough). Yet, maternity clothes are very advanced these days and with some smart shopping you’ll be able to be and feel yourself.
Ok, cope with the fact that you won’t fit into your favourite high-waisted skirt no matter how thin you are for a preggo -in the near future it will be yours again.
After 7 months of pregnancy my advice is not to spend much money on strictly maternity garments because soon they will be useless to you, unless you find something that will be a wardrobe staple after giving birth as well, like a stretch midi dress that fits your bump. Which brings me to my second advice:
Opt for clothes that underline your preggie silhouette and not huge maternity blouses -they will make you look thiner. The closer to the skin the better.
Last but not least: follow those habits from b.p. (before pregnancy) routine that uplift you. Is it a nail job or your monthly visit to the hair salon? Go for it. Do you feel energetic and confident to wear a pair of your beloved high heels? Don’t be afraid to do it. Want to follow a trend? Work your way to be comfy. Getting pregnant doesn’t mean that you’re all of a sudden a different person. You’re just two of you now.
I found a super cool cropped maternity pants at Asos, meant to be paired with those Migato fringe loafers.
A Yiorgos Eleftheriades stretch top and a masculine long Tara Jarmon jacket I own since ever. On top, an extremely warm mohair-wool blend oversized cardigan by H&M.
Leather key holder (I also use it for my cell phone) by Ippolito. On my wrist, the first lucky charm for 2016 by KK Jewelry Lab. Nail polish “Forever Yummy” by Essie. On the lips, “Chili” matte lipstick by MAC Cosmetics.
Ahhh. It’s so good to slip into dresses that actually fit you and your wrecking ball bump.
Loved the length and the bell sleeves on this Clotho polka dot dress. Here paired with Prada platforms, Marc Jacobs handbag and a vintage oversized leather jacket from Vintage Darling.

My casual staples for this month is a pair of skinny jeans and a striped tank top both from H&M Maternity, a Pinko trench jacket and Castaner flatforms -attempting to do the preggie navy style or short of.
Don’t you just love the bright days of September, when the wind is slightly cooler and the light undefinably different and the streets are calling you for yet another stroll. I’m seeking for comfort lately and nothing feels cosier than an A-line cotton shirtdress
-or should I say kind of middle east robe- that also works as an accessories canvas.
Shirt dress Wildwood. Straw shoes Cosmoparis, leather bag & Other Stories. On the lips “Media” lipstick by Mac Cosmetics. Photo: Ioanna Chatziandreou
