Last night’s episode really set us up for the pointy end of this series of Offspring, didn’t it?
The absolute devastation of Billie and Mick’s relationship, the accidental downloading and broadcasting of all Nina’s thoughts about her family via a “pocket call”, Geraldine Day panning out SO far from plan.
And Nina completely bereft, asking Patrick, “how am I going to do this without my sister?”
I know it’s not real but I just dread where this all headed. Don’t you?
I want Nina Proudman to go baby shopping, to buy a fancy pram, to stare in wonder at the teeny tiny size of a 0000 onesie. I want her to focus on herself, the baby and Patrick. If you’ve ever been pregnant, do you remember those last few weeks? For me, they were for embracing the calm before the storm of a newborn.
Anyhoo, the comedy highlight of the night was the Bad Pregnant, gangsta-style “food gorging” dream that Nina had at the start. Hilarious performance by all. Especially loved the part where she eats soft cheese.
And because I want to mix it up a bit as the season draws to a close, I thought I’d put together some inspiration for Nina’s Bad Pregnant look today. Yes, she had a beautiful outfit in the second half of the episode – the pink and white top with a pink floral scarf (loved seeing a scarf back around her neck!) and light tan jacket but I think the Bad Pregnant outfit, toned down a little, could be a great evening option. There’s more than a little Billie in the look too.
Ok, before I get into my inspiration for this look, there are a few things that need to come off the outfit, to inject a bit of class back into it, if you get my drift. I want to turn this outfit into a great one for a girls’ night out as an alternative to wearing a cocktail frock. Are you with me?
So, from the bottom … I’d swap out the boots for either booties or pointy toed pumps. Keep the black skinny jeans. Drop the gold belt (there’s already enough going on with the jacket). Keep the jacket and make it the statement piece of the outfit. I’d keep the long necklace but not the collar one. Earrings I’d like to also see in black. And we don’t need the hat …
1. Country Road jegging $99.95 | 2. Witchery tank $29.94 | 3. Lovisa necklace $16.99 | 4. Witchery earrings $29.24 | 5. Mezi ring $129 | 6. Spurr heals $49.95 @ The Iconic | 7. Marco Bologna jacket $267 (approx on sale)
What do you think? Could you do this outfit? And let’s start that episode de-brief. GO!
PS. Some pointers for you … I thought Nina’s stripey top was more pink than this Country Road one but Channel Ten are saying it’s the one worn by Nina and they should know!
