As a few of you in all probability know, I’m anticipating Bebe Taylor #3 early subsequent yr (thanks lockdown haha) and as this isn’t my first rodeo, I’ve acquired a fairly good concept of the issues that I can nonetheless use to raise my fashion on a regular basis.
For anybody who’s been by way of any kind of physique transformation, you possibly can really feel like you might be continually taking part in catchup along with your altering form proper?
Final week, my previous denims match, and my normal tops have been nonetheless lengthy sufficient. This week? Totally different story!
BUT, if you happen to’ve adopted together with my beforehand pregnancies, you’ll additionally know that I attempt to not spend money on an excessive amount of ‘maternity-specific’ style. I believe there are SO many choices on the market now that may be worn earlier than, throughout and after being pregnant, supplying you with rather more bang for buck.
So this listing is for not solely those that predict, but additionally those that simply simply cool, versatile items of their wardrobe (okay, besides perhaps the maternity bra haha).
When you’re an everyday reader of the weblog, you already know I’m SUCH a fan of this superb Aussie shoe model so how may I not embody a pair on this submit.
Three predominant issues I really like about these slides;
1. They SLIDE on. No bending over as your tummy begins to get in the way in which.
2. They’re adjustable throughout the highest. Being pregnant does all types of issues to you ft, plus I simply occur to have actually slim foot so I like that the width of the strap will be adjusted to go well with.
3. The inbuilt help within the footbed. SO many slides for summer season don’t supply the help of a closed shoe, however these have the FRANKiE4 Footwear customized foot mattress to provide glorious help and luxury.
Not solely is there heaps of room for rising stomach (or simply basic air circulation in summer season), the shoulder ties will make breastfeeding in summer season a cinch! This costume does all of it for maternity and past for me (plus did I point out it has pockets).
This costume is the right instance of a bit that may be worn by nearly anybody (pregnant or not) and shall be nice to decorate up for summer season events and costume down for these journeys out for ice-cream with the youngsters. I find it irresistible a lot I ordered it in two colors haha
There are 4 beautiful colourways, brilliant pink, orange, navy blue and pink + orange collectively, and can match anybody from a dimension 8 (Cushla who’s carrying it within the pic is a petite dimension 8) to an 18 and is accessible from late Oct / early Nov.
Okay, so that is the ONE maternity-specific piece on this weblog, however I couldn’t go away it out! And the excellent news is, even if you happen to aren’t anticipating, Rose & Thorne is DEFINITELY price testing for stunning, inexpensive bras MADE for kiwi girls.
When you want some assist with match, you possibly can both head right down to their HQ in Drury (simply south of Auckland) or bounce on-line and have a digital becoming with Bra Guru (and head designer) Sue. She’s speak you thru find out how to get the very best becoming bra of your life, and advocate some types that may give you the results you want. Can’t advocate this label sufficient, virtually ALL of my bras are Rose & Thorne now!
Have you ever Harrïe & Sam? The modern Kiwi model that works on a fortnightly pre-order system to keep away from creating an excessive amount of extra. They provide easy, stunning types that you may fashion the way in which you wish to fit your private fashion.
Considered one of their staple types is known as the Thrasher (actually as a result of you possibly can thrash it again and again). It is available in a high or costume with completely different sleeve lengths relying on the season.
I personal a number of of those items (each tops and attire) however I significantly love the highest if you happen to do have a rising child bump. Not like mane of your different tops, this one is not going to creep up and expose the underside of your tummy any time quickly haha! The size in it permits for the additional room your stomach wants. (relying on how far alongside you might be, you would possibly must dimension up because the poly chiffon don’t have any give in it)
And if you happen to’re not anticipating, you possibly can tuck it, tie it or put on it free to your hearts content material. Severely one of the crucial versatile items I personal!
Not solely do I observe Renee from Face Stuff Co on insta for her traditional yarns, she can also be actually good at sourcing and recommending superb skincare for busy mummas!
The older I get, the extra I’m realising how my hydration my pores and skin wants (double that with being pregnant). So when Renee beginning raving about this BioJuice hydrating serum, I used to be completely there for it! Hydrated pores and skin means the necessity to much less make-up, much less untimely ageing and smoother protection when i’m carrying make-up
I’ve been utilizing it for about 2 weeks now and I can genuinely say I’ve seen the distinction. I take advantage of it morning (earlier than make-up routine) and evening (after washing make-up off and earlier than moisturiser). You solely want the smallest quantity so I can inform this bottle goes to laaaaaaast!
Simply give me a bag I can throw ‘the entire issues in”. Onto bebe #3 and I realise I don’t really need/need a conventional child bag. This beautiful leather-based is each busy mumma’s dream. When you like issues super-organized, you may also add one of many epic Saben inserts to maintain all the things as an alternative.
This bag suits all the things from nappies, to lunchboxes to a laptop computer and make-up bag. It’s made with the identical superb high quality as ALL Saben baggage are and is certainly one thing price investing in, you’ll have it for years, nicely previous once you want it as a child bag.
You guys know that you simply don’t have to decide on between consolation and elegance, and I imagine the identical concept applies in being pregnant. Certain, consolation is controversial MORE essential, however you don’t need to sacrifice your fashion both. I hope this offers you some inspiration to raise your on a regular basis fashion, bump or not.
Till Subsequent Time, In Love & Model At all times,
