Welcome to our very first ‘Mum-me Chic’ post which is a new series (yes, another one – we love to keep you on your toes!) that will focus on all things “Mum-me” and of course, all things chic.
Today’s post is for the mums to be who need a little maternity fashion inspiration. We have chosen one budget dress and put together three different looks. If you’re not expecting, why not swap the maternity dress for any staple dress in your wardrobe?
This first look transforms the dress into a comfortable and chic Winter outfit that can be worn for work or play. Suffering from swollen fingers? (Isn’t pregnancy such a joyful time?) The Wooden ring from Polli has an adjustable band so you can continue wearing it throughout the next nine months.
I am in love with this Ruby Olive necklace. You can thank Nikki from Styling You for my sudden obsession for all things orange! This is a fun and simple outfit for Spring or Summer. We love the Timi & Leslie ‘Charlie’ bag (previously featured here) and who says you can’t use the ‘nappy’ bag as a handbag before your baby joins the world!
Another simple outfit that can be modified depending on the season by removing the trench and scarf or adding a pair of tights. Of course you don’t have to be expecting a new addition to appreciate that gorgeous Modcloth scarf!
If you don’t yet have a bump to show off or you’re still in that awkward ‘did she have a big lunch or can I ask what her due date is’ stage, check out Fox In Flats ’7 things to wear before it’s obvious your knocked up’ post.
What are your tips for dressing throughout nine months of
nausea, back pain, heart burn joy? Do you have any favourite brands or stores for maternity wear?
