Simple summer soundtrack

Keeping things simple at this stage to be completely honest…  a heavy jersey jumpsuit that pulls on and off in one shot (I’ve got to thank Free People for championing loose shapes that mean these kind of non maternity pieces work now as well as after) and footwear I can slip on and off all by myself.  No word of a lie when I tell you that laces are well beyond my capabilities right now and the husband has been helping me, cinderella style, for the past month with shoes and boots.  Flip flops are the business and these iQushions from Fitflop are like walking on air…  Accessorised with layered necklaces (the boho earth mama strikes again) and what is surely the hat of the season from Next – straw and pompoms?!

So maybe a final beach walk just the four of us…  we strolled at tortoise pace along the sands and really savoured these moments, just us, remembering when this watermelon was just a sesame seed and wondering what life will be like when everything changes.  Hoping the baby will love the beach just like the rest of us, resting on the warm sand and listening to the waves.  The husband is compiling a soundtrack for the hospital and suggested recording the sounds of Troon but we wagered that the softly crashing waves would be rendered virtually mute by the persistent tune of the black dog’s digging barks (that boy loves to dig) and that maybe those wouldn’t be the most relaxing sounds to enter the world to – although perhaps the most fitting for life as we know it…

    Love this jumpsuit on you Wendy! What an easy maternity piece – and bonus it’s non-maternity so you can enjoy it after too. So nice with the straw tote. I was in thongs in my final months with both boys but never looked this effortlessly stylish with them!

    Hope baby doesn’t keep you waiting too long before making an arrival! 🙂
