SUNDAY PASTIME

15 Sep

Charcola-tweed-long-max-Unique-£180
It's a beautiful Sunday morning with not a cloud in the sky. With coffee in hand (my one coffee ration per day, it has to be a morning one!) and a hearty bowl of bran flakes (my current craving) I am browsing online - London Fashion week is no better time to invest in some new threads, right?

I am looking with a pregnant belly in mind, so this is for all you fellow baby-bumpers. Note however, my shopping is often 'non-maternity', so can work with or without.

Enjoy the sunshine, I hope it is shining where you are?!

Love,

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

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.)

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

STRIPES

4 Jul

Topshop-stripe
The is often a misconception that stripes do little to flatter a larger figure (case in point when you are pregnant). However this does not always have to be the case. Choosing the right style, usually in the form of a maxi dress, can actually create a really chic maternity look. Just see these images of Cacee Cobb and Hilaria Baldwin - both are heavily pregnant, both are wearing striped maxi's and both look effortless.





The high street offers a great choice when it comes to stripes. Whether you look to maternity brands or prefer to stick to ready ... Read More

KATE MIDDLETON

4 May

km-polka
Kate Middleton has already been pictured wearing several styles from the Topshop maternity range. She also loves to shop in-store and was recently spotted pa-rousing the latest collection at their flagship store in London.

During a tour of the Warner Brothers studios, Kate choose to dress her bump in a Topshop Polka-dot tea dress, which sold out within hours of these pictures being aired!

The dress in question was not actually a maternity dress. Which goes to show that if you are clever you can still wear styles from the ready-to-wear collection. (To allow for a ... Read More
