This dress will hopefully be the last maternity clothing purchase I make. I've always had a soft spot for anything floral, especially tea dresses and I fell in love with this one from Topshop. Technically it's described as an 'autumn floral' dress and I can see why, but I just didn't feel right having that as a title for a blog post in December. When it comes to maternity clothes I'm not too fussy about sticking to seasons. I wear whatever will fit which, at the moment, isn't a lot! At first I thought it might clash with my hair colour, but I actually think it complements it. I love it so much I will actually be sad to pack it away once I am no longer pregnant and have finally lost the weight around my tummy. A lot of people have told me that they couldn't wait to see the back of their maternity clothes, but I have become quite attached to a couple of dresses and maternity jeans are the way forward! I would recommend them to anyone! There's plenty of room to expand after a big meal!

I wore this dress at the weekend for an indulgent day of going for breakfast at a local café, browsing our local Christmas fayre, having a walk along the river banks and attempting my first ever nut roast as a trial run for Christmas day. We are making dinner for my family and whilst I have threatened to only do nut roast, I will be cooking some sort of turkey for others. Well, when I say I, I mean we, or should I say my husband. I will be leaving that bit, the pigs in blankets and the turkey gravy entirely to him. I have never cooked meat in my life and wouldn't know where to start. I'm starting to think we may have bitten off more than we can chew as I will be 35 weeks pregnant on Christmas day and we are just getting back from a couple of days in Edinburgh on Christmas Eve. Oh well, wish me luck! I think I might need it!
What are your plans for Christmas? Any tips for cooking a good Christmas dinner?
