In fact, she’s already sorted out the “push present” she’s going to buy herself.
The item she’s coveting? A Camilla kaftan. You know, the Australian designer who specialises in those beachy, colourful, is-she-floating-on-air kaftans that scream summer in a shouty voice.
It’s a brilliant choice, but what’s most interesting is Sophie’s reasoning behind it, which she explained on Instagram.
The time has come. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to purchase my very own @camillawithlove but have never been sure I’d wear it enough to justify to the dollars. Yet somewhere in there, I thought it was ok to buy myself two designer handbags this year – one I’ve used about twice! My preggo boobs bump & butt have assured me that now is the time to treat myself, as having a Dec/Jan baby means I’ll have a few extra jiggles to cover up for a while post-baby in the warmest of weather. I think it’s tactically good for when the fanny is falling out, too. Will make the recovery a little more… ventilated. These kaftans / dresses are SO me and now it’s time to choose… and find the money lying around somewhere???? #myownpushpresent
Her most notable argument for the purchase is that post-pregnancy, a dress like this is a great strategic move.
“It’s tactically good for when the fanny is falling out, too. Will make the recovery a little more… ventilated,” she explained in her usual fabulous too-much-information style.
“My preggo boobs and bump and butt have assured me that now is the time to treat yourself.”
Good move, Soph, you should always listen to your boobs, bump and butt intuition.
The mother to toddler, Bobby, also mentioned it would come in handy to cover-up any “jiggles” in the hot months after her December or January birth.
FYI – we think you’re gorgeous pre-birth, post-birth and during birth – jiggles included. (Post continues after gallery.)
Whether you’re a fan of the proposed purchase or not, you’ve got to admit the personal push present is a great idea and a wonderful
excuse reason to treat yo’ self.
Considering Camilla kaftans are priced around $600+, it never hurts to be able to justify it somehow, right?
