MADDERSON LONDON. NEW IN

14 Mar

Amelie
I will keep this short and sweet. Sometimes not too many words are required and it's best to just see for yourself.

Madderson London have recently launched their new Spring Summer maternity collection and as expected it's divine. Luxury, chic and ever-stylish, you will find nothing average about these new season looks. Old favourites are re-worked in summer hues (The Amelie in powder blue and gold French Tweed really stands out) as-well as some new editions that I just love. Hello Serena in Olive.

Basically it's one not to be missed. And please note, ... Read More

ONE WEEK TO GO

11 Mar

IMG_20140308_172722
With just one week to go, and a day of shooting children's fashion ahead, I opted for the Saturday dress. Madderson London's go-to, weekend-style-staple. And how exciting to be able to show off a little bit of leg, thanks to the cheeky slit detail of this maternity maxi.

Who say's you can't remain stylish right up until the end? A pair of faithful sneakers and oversized cardigan finish the look. I love this long-line style from COS, who offer some great 'non-maternity' maternity pieces btw. And I'm always pulling on those Peter Pilloto print flats right now. (You might have noti ...

ALL BLACK

13 Feb

All-black-Gwen
Once again Gwen Stafani steals the crown in the maternity style steaks. (Well mine anyway.) Dressed in a chic all black ensemble, and some killer heels, there are no signs the heavily pregnant star is intending to let her fashion credentials slip. I do wonder though if behind doors she too lives in leggings and flats?

Leggings aside, a pair of leather pants have fast become a maternity wardrobe staple, and thankfully several maternity labels have taken note. Isabella Oliver do the perfect pair. Wear-with-all day and night they will last throughout your pregnancy and be ... Read More

GWEN STAFANI

31 Jan

Gwen-stafani
She is probably my favourite style-wise at the moment, Gwen Stafani always look so cool and she does not let that bump get in her way.

I love everything about this latest look, it's just my kinda thing. (Minus those killer heels, my pelvis no longer allows for a stiletto.) I am now on the hunt for a pair of chic print (maternity) trousers, how fabulous.

METALLICS

30 Jan

Metallics
I don't know about you but this week has been so depressing - Thank you January, rain, grey and cold. At times like this anything to add a bit of shine into ones day is much appreciated. So, hello new-season metallics.

A 34 week bump paired with a high-shine dress or billowing sequin top is perhaps not the best idea for a flattering silhouette, but thanks to all those glittering accessories one can still get in on the action. And if I am honest with such a statement trend I think it's always better to inject that look with an accessory - A silv ... Read More

STATEMENT PRINT

23 Jan

IMG_20140119_184937
A perfect combination of statement and style. Madderson London's Darcy Dress, my new favorite piece from the current collection.

I am not usually one to go for a print, not really sure why, I just always seems to pick something in a block colour. After slipping on the ML Darcy shift however, I think I have been converted. There is just something about this elegant combination of black and beigeย that works. Even with an expanding (32 week) baby bump, that initial fear of a print adding pounds and looking frumpy was sent right to the back of my mind. ย I am not sure how, ... Read More

THE KNITTED CAPE

20 Jan

Luxe-tie-sweatshirt
On my days off I like to keep it simple, and comfy. My go-to piece right now happens to be a Donna Karen knitted poncho I purchased a few season ago, it just seems to go with anything, and most importantly works with that bump. Skinny jeans, a slouchy jumper dress or (dare I say it) leggings are all perfect partners.

With this in mind I have been on the look out for another similar style, just to add a bit of variety on those off-duty days. As said Donna Karen piece has proved, it should become another wardrobe staple that will remain season after season, pregnant or not.

MADDERSON LONDON STYLE DIARY

15 Jan

style-diary1
Just before Christmas I signed up with Madderson London to feature in their first ever style diary. So far I have styled three looks from their stunning collection of luxury maternity wear. You can follow each look here and on the Madderson website.

As well as a chic and stylish maternity collection, Madderson London have recently launched ready to wear. Their press party is at the end of the month and is sure to be a star studded event. Zara Tindall and Holly Willoughby are already big fans, both recently pictured wearing their designs. As you can imagine I am really excited to ... Read More

PICK ME UP

14 Jan

Topshop check shirt
I am now 32 weeks pregnant and feel like my wardrobe needs a little pick me up. By day I have been living in those favorite maternity skinnies, chunky knits and mannish shirts. The investment jeans are still going strong but up top I am struggling. Thanks to that inevitable baby bump, non-maternity styles are starting to look simply too small. There is nothing more unattractive than a pregnant woman trying to squeeze out the last few wears of her regular wardrobe when it just doesn't fit. Today's outfit (maternity jeans 9London and shirt Ralph Lauren) is my case in point. I just a ... Read More

THE TARTAN SNEAKER

14 Jan

celine-tartan-sneaker
The tartan sneaker, a simple, chic, slip-on, brought to you last fall by Celine and lusted after by myself ever since. Unfortunately said pair were a sell-out (let me know if you find where I can still purchase?! I am thinking these would be perfect for post-baby walking in style.) but you can now buy into the trend once again thanks to the high street (here) and at a fraction of the cost. I would hurry up though as these too are flying fast.

I love with a bare leg, but seeing as we are still in the throws of winter a leather pant and chunky sweater will have to do. Shall I?
