Work and maternity workwear

A very quick post today because it’s my FIRST day back in the office since I got sick with Hyperemesis.

SUCCESS.

Well, it feels very much like success even though I only managed to make it in at 11:30am. Baby steps and all that. It was lovely to do my normal commute and fall back into a routine which I’ve missed without realising I missed it.

Being back in the office is nice; being able to see people, have chats, catch up on all the gossip I’ve missed. I have a half hour train commute followed by a trip on the tube, which was a bit difficult but I managed it. I feel ALMOST normal!

Mothercare Ponte Zip Maternity Leggings

Today, I’m wearing these awesome black Maternity leggings from Blooming Marvelous / Mothercare. I wouldn’t actually call them leggings as they’re a lot thicker and are more like trousers – definitely work appropriate, which was my Big Thing. They are SUPER soft and elasticated at the top – they also have a cute zip detail at the bottom which I really like. I’ve been wearing them all day and they are so comfortable! I don’t think the photos on Mothercare do them justice, they’re very flattering and also the right length for the ‘average’ women (they fit me and I’m 5’4″ but I think they would fit women up to 5’7″ at a push).

I’m thrilled with these as I bought a pair of TopShop maternity jeans and didn’t get on with them at all. The legs were far too tight but the elasticated waist band was too loose and kept falling down. I had to hitch them up so often that my hands were quite sore by the end of the day!

Now to find a skirt that I like…
