Third Trimester Baby Bump Style

To keep my sanity avoid a "nothing fits meeee" meltdown, I did a spot of maternity shopping at the Ripe store in Eastland last week.

They're one of my go-to brands, I loove that I can go there and know that I can put on any outfit, and it fits.

I've been visiting Ripe since my bump started to show. I was so relieved to be able to let everyone know so that I could stop hiding in big baggy shapeless dresses and get my style back! I started with buying a pair of their black maternity jeans with elasticized waist...then I bought a ripped pair...then a boyfriend style pair... then faux leather fitted pants..... yep, they're addictive.

So when they asked me whether I'd like to pop into their Eastland store -
I was pretty much already walking in the door!

 They stock everything from activewear to dressy pieces, which is perfect when you can't stand on your feet shopping all day.

 Yep, straight to the rack of all black! They have something for everyone.

The Eastland store is one of my favourites. It looks just like a gorgeous, spacious boutique -  there's a fun stylish vibe - the only difference from any other designer boutique is that all the garments have stretchy waists and fit my every increasing stomach, butt and bust. 

 I fell in love with  this lace dress , finally something pretty and comfortable for date nights.

Their Spring / Summer collection has just launched, which is going to save me when dressing for the the coming months with Spring racing season and many ladies lunches just around the corner!  Not to mention they have perfect 'Date Night' dresses so Sam will be spared from me having a meltdown right before we head out. The pieces I'm wearing are available from www.ripematernity.com and in-store.

The staff were sooo patient and actually 'get' what I'm going through. When your ankles are puffy and you look tired even though you just woke up...it's like a safe haven. It definitely won't be the last visit for me!
