Following on from last week’s interview with Jess (What Would Karl Do), the next fashionista on my list I couldn’t wait to interview is my beautiful blogger friend Michelle (Michelle’s Style Files). We took some stylish yet silly shots last year together [HERE] if you need a memory rejog. I promise the pics will make you smile :) She gave birth to her baby boy earlier in the year. I recall being wowed by her chic pregnancy style. I used to think equate maternity with frumpy, but Michelle completely proved that stereotype wrong.

On maternity style:
“For me it was during summer so a striped tank dress and a black tank dress (Soon Maternity) were my absolute staples! You could layer them or just wear them as is and still look presentable AND they show off the bump beautifully. Soon Maternity have 3/4 sleeve and long sleeve versions of their tank dresses which would be perfect for this cold weather. I also splashed out on a pair of Mavi black maternity jeans- they got a flogging. And again they are a really versatile piece that can be dressed up or down. Fillyboo Maternity also sent me some really fun pieces. They have more bohemian edgier feel which were really different from your ‘average’ maternity gear. And make the most of wearing heels while preggers!!! Once bub arrives they aren’t so much an option any more! ”
“I was incredibly sick during my first trimester I may as well have been called the amazing vomit girl! As such, food was the last thing on my mind. I remember loving iced water in my third trimester and I think there as a salt and vinegar chips phase in there too.”
“I continued cycling to and from work (10km) every day until 34 week pregnant, but I quit the gym as soon as morning sickness kicked in at about 6 weeks, and from about 20 weeks walking wasn’t an option due to pelvic girdle pain. Massage was essential. I had so much pelvis pain from the half way mark. Winsome at Armadale Remedial Massage has a bed with a hole in it for your tummy which was brilliant! I highly recommend it.’
Thanks so much Michelle for sharing with us your favourite maternity labels and styles. I completely agree about heels, although I’m in so much ignorant bliss about motherhood that I hope I can wear them then too… we’ll see about that. Cycling 10 km a day? I feel so guilty for not having exercised for so long. Hopefully when my vet work quietens down, I can get back into jogging again. In the meantime, pass me that salt and vinegar chip!
在于生育风格：我怀孕的时候是夏天，因此经常穿着我的条纹背心裙和黑色背心裙。你能光穿它们，或加上夹克。不仅穿着好看，而且很束缚 。So有同样的裙子担忧厂休子正好在这on Maternity
对于锻炼：直到34 星期，我还继续每天骑自行车去上班，每天骑10公里。6星期时，我得了孕吐，就停止去健身房 了。20星期时，骨盆疼痛导致我不能去走路。我不能缺少按摩。我的骨盆疼痛持续了很久。Winsome 在 Armadale Remedial Massage有专门为孕妇设计的床，我强烈推荐他们。
非常感谢你 Michelle于我们分 享你最爱的孕妇服装。我完全赞成关于穿高跟鞋。当让，因为我对作母亲完全没有任何概念，我还真希望生了宝宝后我能继续穿高跟鞋。：）啊，我已经好久没有锻炼了，等我兽医工作安静下来一点后，我能抽空去跑步。在此期间，请递给我酸咸的薯片！
