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

So in case you haven't already noticed, perhaps one of the biggest trends this Autumn/Winter has to be the blanket cape. Burberry set the scene with their monogrammed Prorsum blanket, taken straight from the runway onto the shoulders of the fashion elite. Then as is most things Burberry, the fashion world followed suit.

We cannot all afford in excess of £500 for the real-deal, (and personally I wouldn't spend that much for a seasonal piece that probably won't last more than one anyway..) but luckily there is a great choice of just-as-chic alternatives. What is just so great a ... Read More

It's sites like this that make me want to be pregnant again, immediately. Introducing Nine In The Mirror - If you haven't heard already you must check it out.

A dedicated pregnancy destination featuring the latest catwalk trends and designer looks from an 'expectant' and new-mum prospective. 'The expectant edit'. This is non-maternity, maternity style at it's best. Think Alexander Wang, Marni, Valentino, all your favourite designers, presented and modelled (so you know each look really does work) around the three different stages of pregnancy, and beyond. Breastfeeding ... Read More

With Winter comes the need for added layers. Chunky knits and woolly tights are all well and good but no matter the amount of fabric, a cover-up is still essential. One of my favourite things to shop for this season is a chic new coat. Just like shoes and bags, you can never have too many. A coat is one item of clothing I have found (with pregnancy number one and again this time around) that does not need to be maternity specific. A baby-bump doesn't really get in the way of the latest outerwear styles. Currently I am loving all things over-sized, as you already know, and the fur ted ... Read More

Gorgeous Gwen Stafani, ever-stylish, even when pregnant (with number 3 at age 44. Amazing!) Don't you just love her?

Pictured stepping out in Hollywood with her three beautiful men to celebrate the big man's birthday, Gwen dressed her tiny hint of a bump in a chic paneled coat over skinny jeans and monochrome blouse. She finished her look with a patent peep toe and contrasting white bag.

I love it all, especially that coat.

Steal my style, yes that's me. Now I am pregnant (20 weeks to be precise) I can share with you my own style, as well as those maternity looks from some of my favorite pregnant celebs. You might follow 'What I am wearing today' on Instagram or Pinterest, if not, you can now catch up here.

For an autumnal winters day, in a rush to get A off to nursery, I grabbed what seems to be my daily uniform-of-choice - an over-sized cream knit, khaki jodphur pants and my new fur lined Parka. I like to mix and match maternity labels with ready to wear pieces and for the most part over-sizing i ... 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

Every winter tweed, checks and herringbone seems to make a come-back and this season is no exception. When the likes of Dolce and Gabbana, Dries Van Norten and Lanvin all feature designs using haberdashery fabrics on their AW13 catwalks, you know the trend will filter through to the highstreet in no time.

After a quick reckie of what's new in-store I have spotted a number of cute designs that follow this form. All of which are perfect additions to your wardrobe and can, of course, be worn with a bump - if you are currently that way inclined.

MICHAEL, Michael Kors, ... Read More
