Ferne cotton
I am a big fan of chunky knits as you know. And it looks like newly pregnant Ferne Cotton might be too. I must admit I'm not totally sure on this specific chunky-knit combination of hers however. For me purple and velvet is a little too 80's, plus the fact purple is my least favourite hue. When it comes to adding colour or texture I would always rather stick to my accessories. But, as a look I like it. I would just opt for denim on cream or grey.

Laid-back, oversized style is the perfect move if you are pregnant and feeling a little fat over blooming. I also love this kinda thin ... Read More

Etoile Isabel Marant
It's obligatory right? At some point over the festive season you are requested to don that Christmas jumper. Whether you adhere or not is another matter.

If you do decide to play the game, after-all it's just a little fun, you are not un-spoilt for choice. There are a lot of Christmas styles out there to choose from. From Tesco, to Topshop, to Isabel Marant. Every budget is catered for, and every-kinda style statement too. I personally think I will go for something a little subtle, fair-isle is always a good option as it's not just for the festive period and can be worn ... Read More

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

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.

Marks and Spencer check
Now if you are like me, you would not think of shopping in Marks and Spencer for a maternity wardrobe. However, I have just had a quick look at their current maternity collection and a few pieces really surprised me.

They have taken two AW trends - Checks and Prints - And adapted them for a baby bump. I am loving this Bird Print Jumper equally as much as this Check Shirt. I have a shirt just like this in my current wardrobe and would have loved to wear the same style with a bump. With a growing belly you just cannot get away with wearing your regular shirts or jumpers. Instead ... Read More

Rollneck Poncho
If you are anything like me and really feel the cold then the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe has to be a cashmere sweater. If you are with bump you can still get in on this trend - just go for a cashmere Poncho.

Chinti and Parker Star sweater
I am totally in love with the entire AW collection from designer label Chinti and Parker - I think you may love it too!?

OK, so Chiniti and Parker is not specifically maternity wear, but they do have some fabulous winter knits that you could get away with wearing over a bump. Take the Fishergirl as an example. A luxurious over-sized cashmere sweater that would pair perfectly with your favorite Isabella Oliver leggings. Just go up one size to allow a little room for growth.

The Aran sweater would work just as well. Made from 100% wool this is the perfect winter k ... Read More

Zara snakeskin printed sweater £45.99
I was shopping recently and visited the Zara store in the search for some nice Autumn winter clothes. I remember last year i had a number of Zara knits that i wore over my bump - even thought they were not maternity they still looked fabulous as they had a wide range of chunky cardi's and jumpers that were oversized, so perfect if you were pregnant! Once again this year Zara have pulled out all the stops with their new season collection. I have selected a few of my favourite pieces all of which you could easily wear sans bump.
