I can’t believe that I have actually made it to my due date and I’m hoping that this will be my last pregnancy update before baby arrives eek! Here’s what I’ve been up to . . .
Now that I’m in the last few weeks of pregnancy trying to find something that even fits has become a challenge, let alone something stylish.
If you’ve kept up with my pregnancy updates you’ll know that up until recently I’ve mixed bigger sized basics with maternity pieces. Currently my bump seems to get bigger every day and is protruding from the bottom of most of my tops – not a desirable look I’m sure you’d agree. So I’ve been on the hunt for some maternity clothes that are stylish, comfortable, fit me and don’t break the bank – Hello George at ASDA.
I’ve found the George maternity range has some great pieces that you can style up at a low price. Here are some pieces that I’m now living in to get me through the last few weeks before Baby Douglas arrives . . .
Black wrap dress – £12
I have to say I’m really impressed with the design of Matalan’s latest collection by Abbey Clancy, the dresses and designs are stylish, demure and fashion forward. They definitely have an air of Victoria Beckham about them with the block colours and clean lines and this is absolutely a step up for the budget brand.
Currently I’m 17 weeks pregnant and as my tummy is slowly growing each week, less and less of my clothes are fitting which is very frustrating! So far I’m mainly wearing skinny jeggings (as they have a stretchy waist) long stretchy vests teamed with a blazer or long cardigan. This is fine but I’m already starting to get bored of the look. It’s also difficult as there is a severe lack of maternity wear on the High Street so it’s difficult to find particular looks just by going shopping. So I’ve decided to look as some of my style icons to see how they dressed their own bumps:
I love a tea dress, cute, girly and a hint of vintage styling, how could you not? As a garment the Tea Dress really has stood the test of time and is always in style. Here’s the latest Tea Dress I bought to add to my 2014 wardrobe in my bid to wear more colour.
As my New Years fashion resolution is to wear more colour I’ve started thinking about my look for 2014 and what I want to achieve. We already know from the catwalks that colour and prints are going to be huge this Spring / Summer season and I definitely need to brighten up my closet. So in the spirit of my new style I turned to New Look to help me find well – my new look!
As Autumn looms on the horizon, new clothes are making their way onto the rails of our favourite High Street stores: jumpers, coats, boots oooh I love a bit of Winter layering! Today I came across the images for Kelly Brooks new collection for New Look to be launched this season, check out the clothes, I think you might be pleasantly surprised.
