Yay! Spring is on it’s way! Or at least that’s what I like to think in mid January, counting the weeks till March. And for pregnant mummies it will make life a little easier: dressing without all those thick layers which makes you look and feel even more huge. I still like to look good and embrace my changing figure at the same time. For one, I don’t like to hide my bump. The Guardian had a thought provoking article the other day (Is ‘maternity wear’ becoming a thing of the past in fashion?) about how maternity wear is changing into something less obviously made for pregnant women: could be worn by anyone, pregnant or not. The thinking behind it is justifiable: save money on the clothes you’ll only wear for a short time. However, women do need to work and wear appropriate clothing right into the 3rd trimester (like me) and some of them, whilst finding a boxy and oversized item cute and different, definitely don’t want to wear them on a daily basis (like me). I was a teenager in the 90’s, that was enough thanks, no more checked flannel for me.
So here’s my wish list for the upcoming spring/summer season from my favourite maternity clothing makers, just a few nice items.

Navy Spot Maternity Dress • Embroidered Jersey Top • Short Sleeve Maternity Top • Breton Jumper
Ellison Maternity Shirt • Harris Maternity Cardigan • Sofia Maternity Top • Zadie Strech Maternity Skinny Jeans
Under The Bump Cigarette Jeans • Embellished Top • Print Ultimate Dress Over The Bump Denim Leggings
And some of them are also wearable post pregnancy. 😉
