As summer approaches and the weather continues to be glorious (lets hope it stays!) i have decided that my summer maternity wardrobe needs some urgent attention! I am bored of leggings and skinny jeans, i need some cute maternity dresses to girly things up!

I have had a look around for some of my favourite pieces from the highstreet that are perfect for those on a budget. As you can see there are several different styles available that sucessfully reflect some of this seasons hottest trends.

I am really into stripes at the moment and i love the French Connection Breton stripe dress, especially loving the cap sleeves!  There are a couple of other stripe designs available at Asos where French Connection have an exclusive maternity range. Dorethy Perkins maternity also do a similar stripe dress, but this will require trying on i think, as the website does not show the dress on a model so you can’t see the fit! Amateur mistake – it’s always better to show internet clothing on a model, don’t you think?!

For an alternative floral, floaty feel there are a few cute dresses that stood out. The Asos Maternity printed tea dress, and the Serephine Maternity printed chiffon dress. Both are similar styles but the Asos version seems a bit more casual, perfect for a summer festival or picnic in the park. The Serephine version is a chiffon material which to me indicates an evening feel, chiffon is not the best material in the heat of the day! New Look also do a boho floral bandeau dress if you fancy that, again fab for a beautiful summers day.

My last pick of my favourite budget maternity dresses, is the Topshop button front shirt dress. I love the 70′s feel reflected in the colour and design. This would be perfect for the office and you wouldn’t need to change for drinks after work! Just add a bit of statement jewellery and your look will completely transform.
