Baby Adventures – Maternity Fashion

I'm pleased to share the fourth post of my regular weekly 'Baby Adventures' column! For those of you that follow the blog & my social media you will have read about my exciting baby news. Where do I begin... there has been so much to organise & lots of lovely things to plan. I'm looking forward to slowing my work down a little & really enjoy the adventure that's ahead of me. Each Monday I'll be sharing my design finds, inspiration & life behind the scenes with my baby bump. I'm pleased to announce that I'm actually on maternity leave!

Please don't worry (or go anywhere...) as the design studio/shop is still up & running & looked after by my fabulous assistant Kelly!

Today I wanted to discuss maternity fashion, has anyone else struggled? My bump took a while to properly show & being quite naturally petite also made it a challenge. I found a lot of the clothing to sit a little odd & felt like it made me look frumpy... I'm pregnant & wanted to be comfortable but equally still wanted to dress fashionably, it was a little stressful finding outfits at times (& hard saying a short goodbye & packing up some of existing smaller sized pieces)! During the early stages of my pregnancy I just wore a lot of stretchy clothing & loose chiffon shirts & right up until about seven months I still managed to fit into my normal sized maxi dresses. After my eight month growth spurt I decided it was time to invest in some key pieces & pretty dresses for the sunny weather. Luckily I recently came across the wide selection available at New Look & managed to pick up some really beautiful maxi dresses. I don't normally shop in New Look but I really have found them to be a blessing & would highly recommend checking out their newest maternity collections.

Until next week...Rachael x

(Ps I'm now 36.5 weeks, madness!)

    Hi Rachael,
    Congrats! Thanks for the bump inspiration. I’m 22 weeks now with our second baby. I’m due in November as Module 2 is about to start – eeeekkk! Have you checked out maternity wear on ASOS? 🙂 Good luck

    36.5 weeks – beginning to mid August then? I’ll be thinking of you while celebrating my own son’s 21st in the Loire. Wish I’d had some of these clothes when he was due – love that blue ombre dyed dress! Take care, Rachael.

    Thank you. At least now pregnant women now have a range of options sure to satisfy their clothing needs throughout the first trimester pregnancy, second trimester pregnancy and third trimester pregnancy. With so many maternity merchandise choices to select from it can be overwhelming.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough
    to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and
    appearance. I must say you have done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me
    on Opera. Excellent Blog!
