PICK ME UP

14 Jan

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

THE TARTAN SNEAKER

14 Jan

celine-tartan-sneaker
The tartan sneaker, a simple, chic, slip-on, brought to you last fall by Celine and lusted after by myself ever since. Unfortunately said pair were a sell-out (let me know if you find where I can still purchase?! I am thinking these would be perfect for post-baby walking in style.) but you can now buy into the trend once again thanks to the high street (here) and at a fraction of the cost. I would hurry up though as these too are flying fast.

I love with a bare leg, but seeing as we are still in the throws of winter a leather pant and chunky sweater will have to do. Shall I?

8 Jan

Look three for my Madderson London style diary, featuring the Camilla shift dress. A chic everyday style statement that is just as stunning after dark.

I have been wearing this look a lot over the festive period, it's just so comfortable and effortless. At 30 weeks effortless when getting dressed is mandatory. Made from luxurious double-knit Italian jersey, with exquisite gold trim detailing, the Camilla Shift is more than just your regular maternity LBD. It's also surprisingly warm so perfect for these cold days we have been having. As with all ML pieces this is a styl ... Read More

RESOLUTIONS

6 Jan

I have been a little slack with my blog posts over the Christmas period. But I figure like me, you guys have all been enjoying your time off, over-indulging and relaxing, and so probably haven't had time to even notice (or miss me)...?

Sadly it's now all over for another year. But with the start of 2014, instead of feeling blue, January blues as they say, I have decided to see this new year as a positive new start. After all those January Blues are  just a frame of mind. So that's my resolution number 1 - always remain positive, focus forward and never look b ... Read More

TOO GOOD TO BE MISSED

20 Dec

Chanel-Vintage
I know it's Christmas and a time for giving, but the Matches sale is just too good to be missed. With up to 50% off some of the most coveted style items, it really is hard not to get carried away. Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, Gianvito Rossi pumps, Sharouk jewels, Chanel bags and too many fabulous clothes to mention specifics, I could happily re-stock my entire wardrobe. Luckily I am a little more disciplined than you might think and will just stick to the classic must-haves. Would I buy it full price? Or those pieces I have been lusting after since they first hit stores (Isa ... Read More

COVER-UP

13 Dec

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

ENVIE DE FRAISE MATERNITY. PARISIAN-CHIC

12 Dec

The maternity dungarees is a style classic. I just love it and ever since announcing my second pregnancy I have been dying to wear one. I was thinking denim dungas from Topshop maternity, but then Envie de Fraise sent me an email asking if I wanted to sample some of their collection - a dungarees was among the selection. Yes please.

Envie de Fraise is a chic Parisian maternity label, recently launched online in the UK and well worth a visit if you are in the market for some new maternity bits. At first glace I see elements of Hatch Collection - leather detail knits and hareem pa ... Read More

OUTNET FLASH SALE PICKS

10 Dec

Mawi-gold-ring
The outnet.com (my favorite online designer shopping destination) has just launched a flash sale, with up to 80% off! Perfect timing for Christmas presents and new-additions for oneself. Every year I do like to by myself a little treat too. I bet you do the same?!

Highlights have to be Elle Macpherson intimate from just £7 and Lucy Choi pumps at just £37! I know there is not too much for those of us with a baby-bump, but I can still get excited about all the accessories. And anyway, I won't be pregnant forever.

Try not to get too carried away.

THE SATURDAY DRESS

10 Dec

20131208_143818-21
The first look from my much-anticipated Madderson London style-diary: The Saturday Dress - every maternity wardrobe should have one. It's not only for Saturday btw. Wear-with-all, it pretty much goes with everything, any day, remaining a style-staple way beyond pregnancy.

Made from perfectly soft, luxurious modal with discreet side ruching and just the right amount of stretch allowing for that inevitable belly. (mine is now most definitely a proper bump!) A clever side slit also means this otherwise fitted style does not restrict movement. You just feel comfortable and loose ... Read More

MICHELLE HEATON

Spotted: Liberty-X star, Michelle Heaton and her baby bump attending a recent London event, in none other than Tiffany Rose - The favorite maternity label for red-carpet maternity glamour.

In grey lace and satin, with sparkling silver accessories, Michelle was glowing. She added a fur coat for classic elegance. But why not add some edge with an over-sized belted mac?



Tiffany Rose is a real contender if you are looking for that Christmas party piece or special event - Classic silhouettes in elegant hues that flatter and enhance in all the right plac ... Read More
