Rock Chick to Frumpy Lump

My style is nothing but predictable, the majority of my wardrobe consists of All Saints graphic t-shirts, blazers, skinny jeans, huge scarves, Lamis Khamis tops,  band t-shirts and most of topshop’s tall range for good measure.

When I was pregnant with my daughter 12 years ago I was lucky enough to fit into my size 10-12 clothes until I was around 6 months pregnant, I wore my usual style tops in a size larger and some maternity jeans which lasted me until I gave birth.

This time around I’ve needed to ditch my regular clothes as they don’t go anywhere near me now I have expanded in all directions and I’m horrified at some of the horrific maternity clothes on the market.  I don’t see the point of spending hundreds of pounds on a new wardrobe that I’m only going to require for another 17 weeks but all of the affordable clothes are either far too short for my legs or body (Tall Range maternity clothes where are you) or don’t fit in with my usual style.
