WANTED

Warehouse leather Zip-front biker skirt £75
I love the leather trend and this season is all about the perfect leather skirt. Being pregnant however, with a little bump starting to protrude (!) I am finding it hard to buy into this trend. Most of the styles I have seen are going to be fit too tightly around the waist. I need something with a bit of stretch...

As my search continues I just wanted to share a couple of styles I have come across that I would not hesitate to purchase, if only I was not 15 weeks pregnant. I am especially drawn to the Whistles Katia skirt and the Warehouse asymmetrical zip mini. Both would look ... Read More

EMILY MACDONAGH (PETER ANDRE)

10 Sep

Peter-andre
Emily MacDonagh debuted her growing baby-bump this week accompanying baby-daddy, Peter Andre, to the TV choice awards.

Emily showed her maternity style in a prom-style tutu dress which highlighted her new figure and killer legs. I am not a big fan of this backless number (I think it's the high-neck) but I love the shoes! A real steal at just. £27.99 from New Look. I would style my pair with a leather skirt-white-shirt-blazer combo. Snap yours up here before they sell out.

Love,

Jess x

HIGHLIGHTS

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

MOTIVATION

6 Sep

Iris-and-ink
It's a boring Friday night in (We are preparing for a wedding tomorrow which means I need to make sure i'm rested) and the football is on, so I am doing a spot of virtual shopping. Nothing else for it.

Instantly love this, the perfect leather dress by Iris and Ink. (I have been looking for the one for ages.) Perhaps not the most suitable maternity attire but definitely motivation to get back to pre-pregnancy shape after #2 arrives. Think I might just get it so I have something to work towards....I quite like those blue boots too.

PAY-DAY TREATS

30 Aug

Faux-leather
Some shopping inspiration, just in time for pay-day. We are all allowed a little treat (or two) once a month, right?

A styling tip: Shop for looks rather than individual items. I always find that those spur-buys result in unworn clothes with nothing that goes with.

Mango, Faux-leather sleeve detail knit cardigan, £59.99



Mango, loose fit T-shirt, £14.99



 

Mango, Eagles-print trousers, £34.99 (With elasticated, drawstring waist.)



Topshop, relaxed cupro ... Read More

leather skirt
With an active toddler in tow, shopping trips these days are few and far between. When I do risk it, more often than not, it ends up in a full scale tantrum, on the floor kicking and screaming. A is just not into the whole shopping experience yet. (Give her time.) So for me that fashion-fix has to come from my laptop. It's definitely not the same experience but for now it will have to do.

With this in mind, one of my favorite online destinations has to be The Outnet. Linked to Net-a-Porter, another fave, The Outnet is what I would call their 'outlet store'. All the same designer ... Read More

FERGIE ROCKS BIKER-CHIC

22 Aug

Fergie
Attending the premiere of her husband's latest film, the heavily pregnant Fergie opted for biker-chic as she adorned her bump in studs and leather. This is perhaps not an obvious choice of attire for a premiere? It's certainly not your everyday maternity look, but Ferigie is clearly not one to follow the rules. There is certainly no arguing that she still looks pretty hot for someone approaching the end of her pregnancy.

Worn together this is not one of my favorite looks, but I love all the elements - You cannot beat a chic leather jacket and some leather/leather-look pants.

I LOVE SHOES

16 Aug

London-sole-2
My latest treat to myself, new shoes. I also indulged in a pair for A. They were just too divine to resist.

Being a busy mum-on-the-go flats are usually the footwear of choice and my latest beauties are from London Sole. The 'Queen of Ballet Flats', Jane Winkworth, has just the most fabulous collection of footwear. After visiting her Kings Road store (Unintentionally, I was just passing by) I could not resist a new pair.  From pretty ballet flats to leopard print brogues there is a style for literally every occasion. I decided to go for something a little flirty and fun, to bri ... Read More

TWEED

mICHEAL-KORS
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.

BOYFRIEND

asos boyfriend t shirt
When I was pregnant comfort was key, but it was also important to retain my sense of style. One of my favorite everyday looks was what I would describe as boyfriend-chic. Loose sweaters, oversized tops and comfy jogger-style pants or soft jersey trousers. When it came to dresses I was more at home in t-shirt or jumper styles. I also had my favorite pair of maternity jeans and a wear-with-everything knit poncho. For me there was no room for fussy prints or fancy materials (except on special occasions when a statement piece was required).

With this in mind I would like to draw you ... Read More
