My picks from the Hatch Fall/Winter 2014 collection

I am so loving the new Hatch collection for this fall. As you may know, Hatch clothes are designed to be worn before, during and after pregnancy, creating a relaxed yet sophisticated look. I only wish I could afford them (a bit too pricey for me I’m afraid)!

What about you? Would you invest in one of their pieces? Here are my favorites:

Minted gold

If there was ever a colour combination made in style heaven that must be mint & gold.  Mint green is such a flattering tone, easy to wear to the office, playground or dinner. I prefer everything metallic in a small dose, and that´s where gold accessories come in hand.

One mama-friendly dress, two ways to wear it

Motherhood often means multitasking (my son is nursing as I type this, no kidding), and this concept translates to our clothing as well. Take this simple black maxi dress for instance: it makes an easy choice for work paired with a smart blazer, but you can transform the look with a denim touch and some ethnic accessories. This particular dress is maternity and breastfeeding-friendly, so the possibilities are endless.
