The back-pack is one of this seasons hottest accessories, which is great news for us mums and mums-to-be. We can now be hands free in style. Sporty and chic, with enough room to fit all your baby essentials and mummy must-haves, this leather carry-all from Elizabeth and James is the perfect alternative to your everyday changing-bag. A pair of large shoulder straps will easily hang  from a stroller too.

Be sure to look out for high-street steals, if your budget won't allow for something more designer. Who would know anyway?

OK so you know I am a big Bugaboo fan, and I do still love my Chameleon. But there is new a rival in town, one that I feel I must draw your attention to - Hello, Joolz. Ergonomically designed, ultra-stylish and 100% baby and parent-friendly. (Well almost, the only fault I can see is perhaps a slightly small shopping basket.)

Up until last week I had only seen a Joolz from the distance, parked outside a Kensington highstreet cafe. I was aware of the brand after Nell McAndrew tweeted it, and soon discovered Sienna Miller owns one, but I had yet to experi ... Read More

Just like the LBD, a black jumpsuit is a real wardrobe staple. Teamed with the perfect pointy pump and statements jewels, after-dark style never got so easy. This is my kind of dressing. 16 weeks in and already I am looking for minimal effort when it comes to deciding what to wear.

So, with this in mind, Topshop's sheer panel maternity all-in-one is looking very appealing....

P.S also comes in ready-to-wear, if you don't currently have a bump.

Leather is a hot trend this season and as Jennifer Love Hewitt proves, rock-chic can also work with a bump.

Dressed in a chic leather sleeveless shirt with matching black jeans and a pair of wedge sneakers, Jennifer was spotted running errands in LA looking polished to perfection.

She finished off the all-black look with a pastel blue tote, her hair loose in waves.

Well into her third trimester the 34 year old actress choose a loose fitting top that skimmed her bump suggesting this was not actually a maternity style. Jennifer proves ... Read More

With winter style the topic of conversation I made it yesterdays mission to find the perfect winter shoes for A.

Last year she lived in a cute pair of brown riding-boots from Zara, so I thought this would be a good place to start. Experience proved me right - There were several different styles on display and I found it hard to choose just one. A navy suede pair with fringe detail really caught my eye but in the end I went for a more practical brown leather. Slightly different to last years style but I know they will once again get worn to death. Brown is the perfect colour to w ... Read More

Topshop fluffy boyfriend coat, £89
How exciting, snow is forecast within the next few weeks!? So, with this in mind it is definitely time to purchase this seasons winter cover-up. I already had my eye on Topshop Unique's dusty pink overcoat but am disappointed to find it has sold out. The same goes for that M&S one you might have seen in literally every fashion magazine this month? (pink is the colour for AW13).

Despite it being hard to find the perfect mannish overcoat in pink, (although Topshop do have a similar style to it's Unique version that's still in stock) there are still lots of alternativ ... Read More

It's a beautiful Sunday morning with not a cloud in the sky. With coffee in hand (my one coffee ration per day, it has to be a morning one!) and a hearty bowl of bran flakes (my current craving) I am browsing online - London Fashion week is no better time to invest in some new threads, right?

I am looking with a pregnant belly in mind, so this is for all you fellow baby-bumpers. Note however, my shopping is often 'non-maternity', so can work with or without.

Enjoy the sunshine, I hope it is shining where you are?!

Warehouse leather Zip-front biker skirt £75
I love the leather trend and this season is all about the perfect leather skirt. Being pregnant however, with a little bump starting to protrude (!) I am finding it hard to buy into this trend. Most of the styles I have seen are going to be fit too tightly around the waist. I need something with a bit of stretch...

As my search continues I just wanted to share a couple of styles I have come across that I would not hesitate to purchase, if only I was not 15 weeks pregnant. I am especially drawn to the Whistles Katia skirt and the Warehouse asymmetrical zip mini. Both would look ... Read More
