BELL BOTTOMS

18 Mar

Jessica-Alba-bootcut
There is a craze going on among some of my favorite, and most stylish, celebrity mums, for the bell-bottom style jean. Also considered (in my eyes) as Bootcut. This is a more flattering and sophisticated style that you can easily wear as a mum, or mum-to-be!

Both Victoria Beckham and Jessica Alba have both been pictured in wide-leg jeans recently. So this is great news if you never felt comfortable in the more modern skinny jean -The boot-cut is back!

Here are some of my favorite styles, in both maternity and ready to wear.

THE BLOSSOM LOOKBOOK – MY WEDDING EDIT

15 Mar

Look 2
As well as blogging I also do styling, mostly maternity.

I was recently contacted by one of my favorite maternity boutiques (Blossom Mother and Child) and asked to style their first lookbook, to be launched on their blog and Pinterest. After asking Blossom mums, and mums-to-be, which events they most needed help dressing for, we ended up with weddings. It is hard to know what to wear to a wedding with a bump. You want to look fabulous, but also remain comfortable (it's usually a long day)!

Using Blossom's extensive collection of stunning dresses I put together thr ... Read More

BABY UGG

14 Mar

uGG-bIXBEE
UGG Australia have just the cutest new collection of mini UGGS. As well as the traditional slipper-style boots in various colours and prints, there are adorable booties, loafers and even little flip flops (complete with ultra cosy heel strap wrapped in shearling)!

A pair of little UGGS would be the perfect addition to any stylish babies wardrobe. You can never have too many shoes remember!? (Whatever your age.)

If I had to pick a favorite for A, I would go for the slippers, in grey - It's so hard finding nice indoor footwear, that looks good and doesn't ... Read More

LARA STONE

14 Mar

Lara stone 2
The stunning Laura Stone was spotted at a Comic Relief event last night in support of her comedian beau David Walliams.



The beautiful model dressed her growing bump in a showstopping white skater dress that showed off her enviable legs and blossoming figure to perfection. Laura's dress doesn't look like it is a maternity brand - instead she has cleverly choosen a loose, flattering cut, that will incorporate a baby bump perfectly.

New Look have the perfect Lara-inspired dress that would work just as well for that important party or event.  All ... Read More

MONOCHROME

13 Mar

DVF
Monochrome is one of this seasons biggest trends. Versatile, edgy and sophisticated you can easily adapt the monochrome look for maternity wear. Here are some of my favorite picks.

Shawl coat from Topshop Boutique in lightweight cotton - Very Victoria Beckham.



 

 

The perfect every-day dress from DVF. It's not maternity specific, but the across-body cut in soft jersey is perfect for a bump. I love the collar detail.



Simple stripes in Black and white. Pair with your favorite jean ... Read More

OUTNET MATERNITY

12 Mar

Citizens of humanity
There is good news if you are an Outnet fan - they now have a selection of maternity jeans!

Now don't get too excited, its only a very limited selection - three pairs to be precise, but they are from the fab brand Citizens of Humanity, so well worth a look. A great pair of maternity jeans is a must!

My favorites have to be the skinny fit in black - great with Chelsea boots by day, or your chicest pair of black heels for night-time- glamour.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

8 Mar

Interantional womans day
Happy International women's day!!

I just love this image taken from my friends at Blossom -  Licia Ronzulli - a member of the European Parliament of Italy, holding her baby during a voting session to mark the day. Sums it up really. Us girls have come a long way! I hope you are all toasting yourselves tonight, with a nice glass of bubbles.

Sorry boys but we can do it all :) ... Read More

BLUE, BLACK AND WHITE – TOPSHOP MINI

7 Mar

Topshop-Mini-neon-jumper
As you know I am not a big fan of head-to-toe pink, frilly and fluffy when it comes to little A's wardrobe. I love brands such as Caramel, Bonpoint and Miller for their muted pallets, checks and stripes in darker tones. As you probably know, I also regularly visit Topshop Mini for shopping inspiration - They have a limited, but Mumzynot-esque, baby girls collection, that is also very reasonably priced. (A lot of their collection could easily be uni-sex, so good news if you have a little boy too. Not the dresses obviously!).

Here are my current favorites, available to purchase on ... Read More

VICTORIA BECKHAM IN FLATS!?

5 Mar

VB-flats
It's not often that we see fashion-designer-mum Victoria Beckham in flats, but even without killer heels she still manages to pull of her signature-chic.



A pair flat ankle boots are perfect, whether you are a busy mum, or a style conscious mum-to-be. There are lots of laid back, riding-styles (also know as Chelsea boots) available from the high street. VB's are of course designer, but I am loving all of these from the likes of Topshop and Kurt Geiger. All totally Victoria-esque.
