Making me smile, non-maternity wear that rocks!Yes, that's right, after a wicked weekend of action, I can truly say I'm rather pleased with myself. I've been schlepping around in jersey layers all winter in muted shades of blah, so when we finally had a sunnyish weekend I got my mama-to-be style mojo on.
NO BUMP! Tilly Floral skulls top by Boohoo.com

This top simply rocks on so many levels - i'll be able to wear it after I've had bubs, it's jersey on the front with floral skull print on the back - so basically it's comfy and casual from the front, but p-a-r-t-y in the back! Woohoo! Oh and it's totally purse-friendly! I really haven't had the urge to splurge on maternity clothing, seriously who wants to throw money away on something you'll wear for a hort period of time? My other issue is that I've found most things to be stripes (I do love stripes, but I mean how much wider do they want us to look?), too mumsy chic or poor in fit & lacking in style...
At 33 weeks getting away with non maternity wear is tricky, the bump is massive now and it may be a little too cold still to hot foot it out in a loose column style maxi', however, they're great for throwing a chunky longline open cardi over the top, belted above the bump.
I've kept tops long and loose and if there's a tunic with an empire waist even better, like this retro printed one I scored recently by legendary Barbara Hulanicki for George. Great for emphasising bump!

Other stylish ladies with bumps!
Is this not the cutest LBD ever? Also loving the casual jeans and tee look with a fur gilet.
