ZARA MATERNITY WEAR

15 Oct

Zara blouse
So I was just browsing Zara on-line for the girls (and for me) and noticed a new maternity section. About time Zara. Great news. It should be good.

Although very limited their maternity pieces don't disappoint. Out of the 11 items on offer (four are 'mum' jeans) I would happily pick any one to wear myself. The minimal and roomy feel is perfect, looking comfortable whilst retaining style. I would perhaps sum it up as a capsule collection for pregnancy. Day to night dress. check. Jeans. check. Blouse. check. My favourite piece is probably the faux leather dress, which I w ... Read More

POLKA DOTS

9 Apr

Pretty woman
Every season the polka-dot seems to make an appearance. Last year Burberry favoured the print, this year D&G. It's a classic and so easy to wear, making it no wonder the high street also likes to feature polka dots a lot. (And I can't not mention Kate Middleton's penchant to polka dot maternity style. She wore a Topshop style whilst pregnant with George and also introduced him to the world wearing Polka dots. Then more recently it was an ASOS addition that caught her eye.)

When I think of Polka dots I think of that dress in Pretty Woman. You know the one? Where she ... Read More

DAZZLING IN CREAM

12 Mar

Dutchess-cream
I'm not always a fan of the Duchess of Cambridge's style, those persistent nude heels for example, but sometimes she really does nail it. Today pictured visiting the set of Downton Abbey is case in point.

A simple, chic, cream coat, paired with black point-toe-pumps. Two wardrobe classics that just work, and it seems even more so when pregnant. I think it's that maternal glow. Cream is actually a really flattering colour to wear during pregnancy. In-fact, I purchased an oversized non-maternity cream coat whilst pregnant and I wore it a lot! I still wear it now. In this instance ... Read More

DRESS UP

28 Dec

camilla lace
Have you got that all important New Years look sorted yet? Are you pregnant and slightly panicking about what to wear? For after dark glamour, step-up my favourite hero piece - the maxi dress.

Last year we stayed in for New Years. first time ever but it was actually quite nice, and being over six months pregnant I just couldn't face the party. However one time staying in over the festivities is enough, and this year we are going all-out to make up for it. Black-tie here we come. I am thus on the hunt for that perfect gown, I really fancy wearing something long in black (which I ... Read More

KNITS

28 Aug

photo-36
I have a feeling summer is on it's way out and there are only a few more weeks left of cropped looks and slides.... These past few mornings chunky knits have been calling me. I have managed to resist so far, however this has not stopped me looking out for new additions. This season the bigger the better, which is something I am really happy about, and is also great if you are with bump. You can't beat a cosey oversized woolly. Wear with leather leggings or those favourite skinnies for everyday style.

Currently I am drawn to any shade of grey ... Read More

IN PIG MATERNITY

6 Jun

Cara-del
I was introduced to In Pig a while ago then somehow they flew off my radar. Not any more, thanks to the help of Cara Delevinge.

In Pig is a vintage inspired maternity wear brand brought to us by the cousin of Cara Delevinge. A small capsule collection consisting of cute dungarees and seersucker dresses all designed perfectly to work with or without a bump. As modelled recently by Cara herself, (who is not pregnant by the way!) this is a brand that's definitely flying high in the world of maternity fashion. Just a few key wardrobe staples is all you need during pregnanc ... Read More

THE ALL IN ONE

This weekend was another taster to the hopeful Summer sunshine that we are all longing to last more than one or two days. With temperatures just about warm enough for bare legs I looked to my more summery wardrobe pieces. The MiH Jeans boiler suit is one of my favourite everyday denim staples and I was pleased to be able to bring it out of hibernation. This is such a versatile piece that can be thrown on with not much thought at all. (My kind of clothing right now.) The zip front is also perfect for breastfeeding.

Team with a sneaker for day-time-cool and add a chunky knit when ... Read More

SHOP SLACKS & CO

6 May

SLACKS-AND-CO
I have always been a big fan of Slacks & Co whilst pregnant, for me they are the British version of Hatch Collection. (Another super-stylish maternity brand that is hard to shop this side of the pond.). Excitingly I have just discovered that favourite mother and baby boutique Blossom now have a few pieces as part of their online maternity collection. How fantastic. The perfect portal to shop for you and your little-one-to-be. I don't know about you but I much prefer filling a large basket all in the same place...

Slacks & Co maternity is basically my everyday style tailo ... Read More

Derek Lam NYFW SS14
I might be a mum but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in fashion (the same probably goes for you, if you are a follower of Mumzynot) So one of my current favourite past times is catching up online with all the latest from NYFW, currently in full swing. My sister in law is actually there as we speak following all the shows for Net-a-Porter, so I get all the insider gossip too.

Highlights so far have to be Tibi, Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang and Derek Lam. Loose structure, monochrome, leather and silk are all currently top of my list for SS14. I might steer clear of the cro ... Read More
