My Maternity Leave Uniform

I was looking forward to maternity leave for many reasons, one of the very small reasons was that I wouldn't have to wear my uniform every single day, I felt like I lived in my work uniform and was totally looking forward to being able to wear a variety of clothes all the time.

The variety of clothes didn't quite happen, I practically live in this outfit, or a variation of it with similar trousers and a vest top, it is lightweight (I'm always hot), comfortable and relatively flattering. The sandals are perfect for all the walking that I do, they look fashionable (or at least fashionable to me!) and are so comfy, what you can't really see is that they have proper cushioned soles, it is like walking on air. 

I have found a new uniform, my maternity leave uniform. 

I never realised that Brantano stocked such a wide variety of brands until I was browsing their website to order these sandals. I absolutely love that there are so many different brands available under the one roof, or website. With brands such as Clarks, Esprit, Adidas and Vans there really is something available for everyone.

Do you have a 'uniform' for when you aren't working? What is your go to outfit?


  1. You look great and it's important to be comfortable. I work from home, so I don't have to dress in a specific way, usually I'm in T-shirt and leggings :)

  2. Dress, leggings, high tops. In summer it's dress, plimsolls. Perhaps not everyday but a lot! Your uniform suits you :)
