Just because I am having a self-confident moment grin

I am 5'4", size 12, D/E cup (temporary pregnant size I think), shoulder length brown hair.

From the top...

hair is down, a bit messy tousled.. minimal makeup, just mascara really. no jewellery except for small silvery watch.
Brown boxy shaped leather jacket from Monsoon sale a couple of years ago.
Black cashmere cardigan, same shape as jacket so not really seen.
Cream top, sleeveless, sheer owl-print over plain underneath layer. Zara A/W 12 I think. Sized up, not a maternity item. Maternity camisole underneath (it's windy, I'm feeling chilly!)
Tan/coffee coloured 7/8 chinos from Mamas. and Papas.
Nude/pink brogues from Bertie.
Tan tote handbag from John Lewis with orange edge piping (this is actually my favourite accessory I have ever owned and not just because people ask me if it's "Mulberry or something")

And on top of all that, a beaming smile because life is good today. smile

ooh can I do that in this section? I'm on my way home from a half day at work, might try a mobile phone selfie if I see a mirror somewhere...

Yes, pic please, your outfit sounds lovely!
It's amazing how good it can make you fell when you feel all dressed up and co-ordinated!
Big grin grin

Funnily enough, I am also having a brilliant day totally enhanced by the fact that I had no trouble choosing what to wear today and it looks good!

Do you have a link to your Bertie brogues? They sound gorgeous.

the feet

the legs

the top

the jacket

no full length mirror in the house so can't do a pic actually of me! But thanks for all the nice comments. It is definitely all about how you feel, and feeling a bit 'put together' is the key. smile

Lovely! Chinos are a godsend in pregnancy and the rest of that outfit dresses them up really well.

I found that one or two well-loved outfits were good enough to get me through pregnancy as I tende to have fewer social occasions and think pregnant folk are forgiven anyway for wearing the same stuff.
