NURSING KNITS

8 Jan

photo (47)
So I am no longer breastfeeding but when friends Babes With Babies asked to feature something gorgeous from their collection, I knew this was no matter. As a maternity and breastfeeding go-to of mine, when it comes to their clothing practicality is just a formality.

So, as it should, the Babes With Babies collection has several lovely pieces that appear in no-way baby/pregnancy/breastfeeding/new mum related, and after a quick search I picked something I have actually be looking for, for quite a while. - A chunky poncho-style cable-knit in that lovely shade of charcoal grey.

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

GREENBERRY KIDS

18 Dec

Pom pom
I love discovering new brands and Greenberry Kids is my latest gem. Mini-Scandi-style mixed with a cool Korean flair. This is my kinda children's clothing, and those baby pieces are just too cute.

In all honesty, there's not much else to say. All you need to do is look at these outfit images and you know what I am talking about.

You can shop Greenberry Kids here, and if your quick I think you still have time for Christmas delivery. I am coveting the Annkia star-print tutu for A, debating upon it as part of her Christmas look...What do you think?

WRAP-UP

4 Dec

Marni wool-felt coat
Wrap-up in style, that new coat is calling. Question is can you hold off until the sales?

A chunky knit is my go-to for winter, so when it comes to outer-wear it needs to be oversized. (Expectant dressing approved.) Those most coveted styles, Joseph's belted wool mac or a Marni olive-green version are my dream buys. From a more realistic view point the high street have some things similar, that I also love. COS is a favourite right now for that new addition, and they have the cutest mini-me version for A which I feel is a must? I am also lusting over Ganni's teddy coat for that ... Read More

MY JOOLZ

3 Nov

Joolz
The 4 x 4 of travel systems, and trust me I've pretty much pushed them all. My Joolz studio Noir is the bees-knees, and incidentally doesn't come much chicer in all black.

There are 101 reasons why I would recommend the Joolz as your travel system, I was invited to their studio and showroom in Amsterdam not too long ago (read more here) which highlights most of them. But nothing highlights it more than actually owning and living with your own. Looks aside, for me their is no rival.

Love,

LOUNGING

14 Oct

Maje
Being pregnant, especially during that third trimester, requires a total amount of comfort. But comfort and style can come hand in hand.

I'm no longer with bump but I can still speak with experience; For the most part, towards the end, lounging was the name of the game. Be it at home, on the school run or sitting at a desk, I pretty much had it mastered. Isabella Oliver was my go-to, and new pregnancy portal Nine In The Mirror would also have featured heavily (damn you, six months too late!) Choosing styles wisely means they can remain post-bump. I still pull on those f ... Read More

LORI BLU

Lori Blu is coming to a Sloane Street near you, and I for one am totally excited.

When I think of Italy I think style (and food). The Italians have both perfectly nailed on the head, and when it comes to fashion, or in this instance shoes, you can't really do any better than 'Made In Italy'. Lori Blu is what I would call the Italian Jimmy Choo. Not yet so famous over here in the UK, but once their flagship store opens (very soon) unrecognised will be a thing of the past.

I'm just happy I know where their outlet store is located. (Right by where I holiday every sum ... 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.
