ZARA MATERNITY WEAR

15 Oct

Zara blouse
So I was just browsing Zara on-line for the girls (and for me) and noticed a new maternity section. About time Zara. Great news. It should be good.

Although very limited their maternity pieces don't disappoint. Out of the 11 items on offer (four are 'mum' jeans) I would happily pick any one to wear myself. The minimal and roomy feel is perfect, looking comfortable whilst retaining style. I would perhaps sum it up as a capsule collection for pregnancy. Day to night dress. check. Jeans. check. Blouse. check. My favourite piece is probably the faux leather dress, which I w ... Read More

OFF THE SHOULDER

29 Jul

I wasn't 100% sure about the off-the-shoulder look at first. Perhaps a little too bohemian for my style, and definitely not something I was dying to add to my wardrobe. But as with all these things, you never know before you try. On this occasion I was actually pleasantly surprised.

Looking further into the trend, and now knowing it can work with my more minimal style, I have started to notice more and more off-shoulder pieces I am wanting to add. Although I am still thinking sensibly. As with most trends, it's best not to get too carried away. Sticking to just one or two more c ... Read More

LEGOE.LAND MATERNITY

In the words or Alexander McQueen, 'there is no better designer than nature.' So with nature being the greatest, what better way to celebrate than with the introduction of an exciting new maternity label to compliment it.

Legoe.Land maternity is launching any time soon and i'm pretty excited given the snippets seen from their instagram page, and i'm not even pregnant! By the looks of things this is my kinda clothing, bump or not. Australian based, (darn) but shipping worldwide, (phew) it promises to bring 'wearable, tran-seasonal and timeless basics' to the world of expectant st ... Read More

TRENDING

4 Mar

Pastels maternity
Spring is just around the corner and I cannot wait for those first blossoms to fully bloom. Attention is also turning away from those winter knits. We can finally start thinking about more summery looks. One such trend, set to be big for the season, is pastels.

Now I'm not really a pastel kinda girl, I tend to stick to my more neutral uniform; greys, black and whites whatever the season. Come spring and summer I simply pick more white than black and lighter greys. However, if I were a fashion slave and followed the trends completely, there is a lot of shopping to be had. And I m ...

LINGERIE

20 Jan

Ganni
One of my January traditions is to sort and re-vamp my underwear drawer. This is required even more so after having a baby and finishing breastfeeding - It's a little celebratory treat. (Paired with a little sadness that that special time is over.)

I am fortunate (or un-lucky depending how you look at it) that I have never had a problem buying nice underwear thanks to a moderate bust size. When pregnant and breastfeeding, although a-lot bigger, that size was still manageable and I could easily find comfortable and good-looking maternity and nursing pieces. My go-to's - ... Read More

DEAR SANTA

2 Dec

Moniva vinader
Now December is finally here it's time to start thinking gifts. And also time to start thinking about that wish-list. It's always fun creating your own gift-list, even if it is just in your head.

So what would I like to un-wrap this year Santa? Well being a typical female, fashion-loving, shoes and handbag obsessive, it's kinda easy. I'm also partial to anything Alex Monroe or Monica Vinader. (Specifically I would love an MV engraved necklace in rose gold.) I'm also in the market for some new perfume, seeing as my three year old has taken to my current collection so intently, I ...

BLANKET CAPES

21 Oct

Blake-Lively
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

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

CUCUKA

Brought to my attention just a few weeks ago, Cucuka leather changing bags: Coming very soon, and most coveted. I might even go as far as to say perhaps the chic new 'it' bag for stylish mums.

You know the spiel, so I won't go into that practicality side of things again (!). Quickly and foremost, think buttery soft leather, gorgeous looks and a designer quality. Cucuka is my kind of arm candy then, and it just so happens to have that required function. Don't mind if I do. My name will most definitely be going on that list. How about you?

SHIRT DRESSING

20 Aug

photo-111
It's that in between stage. Not warm enough for full-on summer dressing but still OK for bare legs to show off a bit of that holiday tan. My go-to? A shirt dress. Button front, perfect for breast feeding, just haven't had a chance to wear any other kind of dress this season, long sleeved, and great with a chunky knit if it decides to rain. Can't really make up it's mind these days can it...?

The shirt dress is also perfect as a maternity look. Loose-fitting to accommodate that bump and button (or wrap) front for when required post-baby. Isabella Oliver maternity have an ... Read More
