You may have noticed that I have meaning missing of late.. it’s because our two has become three!
That is right… I’ve just had a baby! Well she is nearly three weeks old now but it has meant life has changed forever and I am still getting use to this new role of mine!
It all kind of happened rather quickly. I had a day planned to get the blog ready while I took some downtime for motherhood and next minute I was in hospital having a baby just a little earlier than expected. Not quite how I thought it would happen so very thrilled to have a healthy happy baby!
I am over the moon and so happy and loving this new adventure but Geelong Fashionista has been neglected with every ambition to come back and write as soon as I can.
I don’t plan on changing the blog into a baby blog by any means… that is not why you follow; but things will change around here in terms of lifestyle and no doubt I’ll be mentioning her in my writing but still with the focus on my everyday fashion, lifestyle and hometown of Geelong.
Before little miss was born I was thrilled that I got to get some amazing images of my belly. Andrew and I borrowed our friends beautiful house and took some to remember the time. I loved been pregnant; it was a wonderful time and I am so lucky that I had such a great pregnancy and enjoyed my changing body. I’m thrilled I captured it right before Frankie was born.

Wearing comfy clothes has been the biggest thing for me in the last couple of weeks as I grow and grow. Especially this last week with our “heat wave” and making sure I am comfortable as my temperature seems to have jumped quite a lot to normal. Not that I’m complaining!
These shorts are amazing. They look great and no one would know they go all the way over the bump! The minute I saw them I fell in love and knew they would be well-worn! It may only be for a short while but as maternity leaves approaches very very quickly I think they will become a wardrobe essential. That’s right; my last day of work is tomorrow and I am very very excited.
As much as I enjoy my job, I feel it’s time to stop. Almost like my mind knows it’s time to prepare for the next phase in my life.
Mim and Bas really does have some wonderful pieces and I have been getting excited by their new mum clothes, perfect for breastfeeding and yet still looking good! Make sure you go check out the website Mim and Bas to check out their pieces! I’m sure they will be more images to come.

One of my favorite things to do is to get all glammed up for a wedding!! Last weekend just happened to be my sister-in-laws wedding up in Echuca!
It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect. In fact it really does feel like spring has sprung! A great feeling to have as I’ve been hanging for some sunshine!
Now back to the weekend! Carly looked amazing and everything about the wedding was stunning. I got to use my event management skills by helping at the church and setting up the night! I love helping people create such a special memory, however at 33 weeks pregnant it was a challenge but I think Carly and Mark were very very happy.
The biggest challenge for me was what I was going to wear… I generally plan out a wedding outfit well in advance, it’s just the way I work. I like having a good idea and making sure everything fits in. Not knowing what shape or how big I would be really was a challenge as I had to wait right before the day to really know what I would wear! I’ve found that with the right material you don’t need to wear maternity clothes and that everyday wardrobes can work. I guess I’m also lucky that the only places I have “grown” are my tummy and boobs!
Kookai has been my place off choice for lots of my outfits in the last 8 months and goes to show you do need to experiment. This red dress was perfect and I am forever grateful to my girlfriend for the lend, it sat perfectly around the bump and worked really well!
What do you think? Do you have tips on dressing in maternity wear?
