What I've been wearing lately (two days to due date!)

I took these photos on June 30, two days before my due date of TODAY. I'm really glad to have them as a souvenir of the end of my pregnancy. For the past couple of weeks I've been happy to listen to my doctor's advice about slowing down my active lifestyle and getting plenty of rest. We've seen some signs of early labour but it's still a guessing game when our little one will arrive. We're excited to meet him, but as long as he continues to grow and keep up his wriggles and kicks, I'll happily continue to cart him around on the inside!

Clothing at the end of my pregnancy has been all about flat footwear, maxi dresses and comfort above all. Flair comes in the form of bold jewellery or bright colours. I've bought a couple of maternity pieces, but I've been grateful to my mom and fellow mamas for lending me some dresses to get me through these last few weeks.
