A PAIR FOR YOU, A PAIR FOR ME

30 May

Ugg-orange
Most of you (as did I) probably still associate UGG with 'those boots'? But there is exciting news.  UGG Australia have a fabulous collection of footwear for the Summer months as-well as the Winter. A pleasant surprise after shopping the website in search of a pair for myself and little A - A gift from their PR in return for a Mumzynot feature.

I must admit, initially, I was not that excited. As soon as I heard the word UGG (before I looked on their website) I immediately just thought, style-less boots, WAG-a-licious, Katie Price. However as soon as I logged on I was greeted w ... Read More

MAXI DRESSING

16 May

T-Bags, jersey maxi dress
Spring had sprung and Summer is finally breaking through. This means one thing - wedding season is upon us!

There is nothing more exciting than shopping for a new wedding outfit. This year you may be feeling slightly apprehensive, thanks to a growing baby bump, but there is really no need to panic. Some of my favorite maternity and ready-to-wear labels have some stunning options to choose from. I have five weddings this year so as you can imagine I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect wedding look - This is season I am finding myself drawn to the maxi dress....

JESSICA ALBA PREGNANT?

15 May

Jessica-Alba-pregnant
This is maybe a little controversial and I don't usually like to spread rumors.... But I was just reading about Jessica Alba's Honest company, looking at pics from their 10th anniversary celebration and i'm thinking (I don't know why, I just have an inkling) Is Jessica maybe pregnant with baby no.3...? She just seems to have some sort of pregnancy-aura and the baggy clothes don't help fuel my suspicions. Is that the first signs of a very teeny-tiny baby-bump?

Watch this space. If I am right, you read it on Mumzynot first!

HALLE BERRY

15 May

Halle-Berry
When it comes to maternity style Halle Berry is a fan of the laid back look. However, she still manages to look -Mumzynot-chic even on her dressed down days.

Pictured on the school run, the stunning mum-to-be, dressed her growing bump in some boyfriend jeans and retro-inspired print blouse.



Get the look with this over-sized shirt from Johnny Was and Topshop maternity boyfriend jeans. Great with a bump, or without.

ADEN + ANAIS POP-UP IN HARRODS

14 May

aden-+-anais-at-Harrods
Just a quickie - One of my favorite baby brands, aden + anais, has recently launched a pop-up store in Harrods. A  must-visit next time you are heading that way. You can shop their collection (which is a real treat as most baby-boutiques only offer a very small selection) and also view the latest print- additions to the aden + anais family.

I love aden + anais and since A was born I have managed to put together an extensive collection of their most luxurious 100% cotton Muslins. (You can never have too many Muslins and you can't beat the quality of aden + anais). I will definit ... Read More

COVER-UP

8 May

ZImmermann
I am a huge fan of the Australian brand Zimmermann. I discovered them first hand whilst on holiday in Sydney and after visiting their Westfield store I was hooked. Several hours shopping later, with the help of a gorgeous sales assistant from Bournemouth (of all places) I left a very happy bunny, with two new bikinis and a stunning cut-out-floral dress. (Dress as pictured below. My outfit for my brother's beautiful wedding two days later. That's the Sydney skyline in the background - Pretty amazing venue setting huh!?)



Specialising in swimwear, this is a brand ev ... Read More

MET BALL 2013 – MUMMY-STYLE

7 May

Sienna-Miller
Last night was the annual Met Ball Gala in New York and this years dress code was a little more edgy than previous years - This year, guests were asked to go Punk! With this in mind I was excited to see how my favorite celebrity mums were going to style their red carpet looks, whilst retaining the glitz and glamour of previous years.

In true Punk fashion - studs, spikes and dramatic make-up were the theme of the night. Leather, lace and brocade were also in abundance. As with most celebrity style events there were some fashion hits, as well as some impressive fashion faux-pas ... Read More

KATE MIDDLETON

4 May

km-polka
Kate Middleton has already been pictured wearing several styles from the Topshop maternity range. She also loves to shop in-store and was recently spotted pa-rousing the latest collection at their flagship store in London.

During a tour of the Warner Brothers studios, Kate choose to dress her bump in a Topshop Polka-dot tea dress, which sold out within hours of these pictures being aired!

The dress in question was not actually a maternity dress. Which goes to show that if you are clever you can still wear styles from the ready-to-wear collection. (To allow for a ... Read More
