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.
