Fashionista Mama

Being pregnant and on-trend can be a tricky task, however this summer the catwalks have created lust-worthy looks which are not only baby bump friendly, but wearable too.


Whether you are brave enough to wear a tribal maxi-dress, say it with sequins or look like a red hot mum-to-be in this season’s colour – the choice is endless.


Festival Chic

Nothing says festival chic like an uber-cool embellished tee, emblazoned with a funky aztec or tribal pattern.

Laid back yet glam, these ultra stylish one pieces are perfect this summer. Check out the draped waist details at the side and subtle nude sequins, meaning all eyes will be on you. You don’t even have to tread the muddy fields to qualify. Kate Moss, eat your heart out.
