Hey Leggy Lovelies,
Hope you’re all well and enjoying the sunshine. I’ve just returned from a relaxing holiday on the Greek island of Santorini, so apologies for my little hiatus.
There is another reason why I haven’t been posting too much recently. It’s because I have been getting bigger. And I wanted to wait until the right moment to share with you my very happy news. I’m 20 weeks pregnant.
The fact that most of the things I’ve been showcasing on the blog of late have been elasticated in the waist or a little bit loose and flowing has been of no coincidence. There’s a little leggy lovely growing in there. A PINK one! We’ve just had our 20 week scan, so I feel a lot more comfortable about sharing the amazing news, and besides, there is slim chance of my expanding waistline going unnoticed now.
I hope you’ll agree that this will add an interesting new dimension to the blog. Tall maternity-wear isn’t something I’ve ever been able to chat about in much depth, and now I’ll be able to dedicate a lot more time to the fashion dilemma that is being tall and being pregnant (a physical state that must be so rare most retailers don’t seem to acknowledge exists).
Since I plan to wear as much non-maternity attire as possible so that I can continue wearing pieces long after pregnancy, I’m hoping that those of you without protruding tummies will still continue to read All the Tall things and find plenty of useful information and ideas. The maxi dress in the photo above is a Long Tall Sally number (also available in a beautiful jewel green tone) that I’ve been wearing long before the bump appeared.
Thank you for your continued support of the blog. I can’t wait to take you on this little adventure with me.
P.S. A lot of pregnant women complain about all the relentless “advice” they seem to get from other mothers when they’re expecting. However, I WHOLE-HEARTEDLY welcome any tall maternity fashion suggestions you have! So please do share your words of wisdom here!
