Vintage Dress (See a Similar one HERE), Sunglasses, Clutch / Maison Martin Margiela Boots (check out similar styles HERE and HERE)

It’s not every day you find your bag matching your boots. Especially when they have such uncommon origins. The clutch was a vintage market find in Milan and the Maison Martin Margiela boots? One of my first splurges after starting to work full time (you gotta treat yourself once in a while right?), from Zambesi. This stylish navy wool dress was a present my god-mother gave me over a decade ago. She wore it in the late 60s. I have to admit, I look much better in it when I’m not pregnant. But wool dresses are pregnant ladies’ godsends during winter.  I’m not into pants during pregnancy, only resorting to them when I’m vetting, so knitted dresses provide both comfort and style.

Last week I had the pleasure of collaborating with photographer Richard Ibrahim for this photo series. He has got to be one of the most driven people I’ve ever met. As he snapped away, he told me his lifelong aspirations and goals. I’m one of the least ambitious people on the planet. But after musing with Richard, I realise that we all need hopes and dreams in our lives. They propel us forward and prevent us becoming stagnant. So note to myself this on this Monday morn: Need to find myself a vision.

What are your desires in life?

不是每一天你发现你的包包配你的靴子。尤其因为它们有如此不同的起源。我的包是在米兰的老式市场发现的。Maison Martin Margiela的靴子是我刚开始全职工作后买给自己的礼物。当初知道很贵,但它们伴随了我6年,而且每次我穿它们,会有人在街上称赞它们。这件时尚的海军羊毛礼服是我阿姨十几年前送的。她在60年代时穿的。我不得不承认,我若不怀着孕,这条羊毛裙会更漂亮。冬季怀孕妇女你们喜欢毛线裙吗?我在怀孕期间几乎不怎么穿裤子(除非我在当兽医)。针织服装提供怀孕妇女舒适和风格。

上周,我有幸与本系列照片的摄影师Richard Ibrahim合作。他好有上进心了。我们一边拍着照,他告诉我他人生的愿望和目标。我不是个很有雄心的人。但与Richard沉思后,我意识到,我们在生活中都需要有希望和梦想。它们能推动我们前进并防止我们变得停滞不前。因此这个星期一早晨:我得找到自己的梦想。

I think you and your bump look so nice in this dress! Such a lovely winter piece :) And those boots are real standout pieces.

I have pretty simple goals and desires in life – I’m happiest at home curled up with hubby and puppy so I don’t need anything extravagant :)
