“Looking Swell”

ASOS maternity wearMy fashion Blog this month is for all you lovely mothers to be.  Life doesn’t stop when you get pregnant you still have all the responsibilities and appointments and occasions to dress for, however the growing bump means the shrinking wardrobe.  For working mums I guess the biggest question is “What am I going to wear today for work?” The bump is forever changing as the weeks go on, so mummies-to-be, I have looked at various different styles from working in the corporate environment to the more casual work place.

midi ruched maternity skirtThe Midi Ruched Maternity Skirt from Isabella Oliver www.isabellaoliver.com at £59 is a fantastic little number that gives you the figure flattering shape that works on any body. The black silhouette also will help streamline your bump, ideal for the office. You can team it up with this large spot drape back shirt at ASOS £30.00 and finish off with the black slingbacksbonnie sling backs at Jones Bootmaker £49, you want your colleagues to see you as a professional not pregnant.

If you are not overly keen on the tees, go for something like River Island vests at £10 which are so versatile to move with your shape. Add a pair of the boyfriend Jeans from ASOS £38 and then team with a pair of Gladiators Sandals from Dune.co.uk – a big hit this summer season and very comfortable for mummy-to- be priced at £19.00 – what a bargain!

Enjoy all you mummies-to-be.
