I am so glad kimonos are on trend right now, because that means that there are lots of them to choose from, and some of them are actually beautiful AND affordable. They give you instant glamour, whether you are in the final swelling months of your pregnancy or exhausted with an absorbing baby.
Here is a selection of my 10 favourite mama-friendly kimonos around the internets (and don’t miss out other mama friendly fashion inspiration on Pinterest!):
In this blog I often try to help you find clothes that are mama friendly, that is, “normal” garments that are suitable for pregnant and/or nursing women who love fashion.
But sometimes it’s worth to get some proper maternity and nursing items (specially bras and bottoms) so I decided to make a round up of the best online stores for affordable maternity fashion. Here is the list, and my favourite picks from each one:
What’s more convenient when you are pregnant than shopping your maternity clothes while you stock up in everything else you need?
An international powerhouse, it’s the safe place to go for affordable fashion for the whole family.
New Look takes maternity fashion seriously, stocking a wide range of belly-friendly clothing from great basic sets to pretty dresses.
Apart from their Maternity collections, they stock other well known maternity brands like Mama.licious, Isabella Oliver or Elle Macpherson Intimates.
Always at the forefront of trends, TOPSHOP Maternity is the perfect range for mamas who won’t let a bump get in the way to be the coolest girl in the room.
With a huge range of jersey tops and dresses, you can’t go wrong with GAP’s comfortable yet stylish pieces.
What do you think of this list, did I miss any shop you like? Where do/did you shop for your maternity wardrobe?
Happy New Year people! Have you been keeping all those super ambitious resolutions? Erm, I didn’t get to finish writing them!
So New Year calls for a New Look right? Well, I think it’s a good excuse to get back to have a quick look at what’s at store in this shop, there are always tons and tons of great maternity basics and some cool finds too. Here is my selection, hope you like them:
1 New Look Maternity Burgundy Tea Dress // 2 New Look Maternity Black Colour Block Crepe Tunic Dress // 3 New Look Maternity Monochrome Stripe Crepe T-Shirt // 4 New Look Maternity Grey Double Zip Front Jumper // 5 New Look Maternity Navy Broderie Panel Tea Dress // 6 New Look Maternity Black Tile Print Sleeveless Dress
Newsflash! A cozy cardigan keeps you warm when it gets chilly like these autumn days. Who would have thought, hu? Well, in all its obviousness, I want to emphasize the goodness of this classic garmet: it’s super mama friendly, like these open versions that envelop the baby bump or give you easy access for nursing.
A graphic style is perfect when you want to add a quirky touch to your outfit, and the neutrals are a safe haven in the crazy daily caos. What’s your pick?

Hi all, sorry for the lately lack of posts, I’ve just been so busy with my masters course project!
If you are looking for maternity and breastfeeding friendly fashion inspiration, you can check out my Pinterest account, where I am more active.
So it finally feels like spring over here, so I am in the mood to post about spring-summery clothes. New Look Maternity are doing really great lately, they have become one of my favorite affordable maternity brands along with Topshop, ASOS and H&M. What do you think?
Here are my faves at the moment:
1 Heavenly Bump Purple Ava V Neck Maxi Dress / 2 New Look Maternity Beige Ditsy Floral Sleeveless Dress / 3 New Look Maternity Navy Butterfly Belted Dress / 4 New Look Maternity Navy Daisy Print Sequin Collar Dress / 5 New Look Maternity Stripe Jersey Maxi Dress / 6 New Look Maternity White and Blue Bird Print 2in1 Dress / 7 John Zack Maternity Pink Lace Dress / 8 New Look Maternity Pink and Purple Aztec Print Dress
I know my posting has been very sporadic lately, I explained why before, apologies for that. It’s been a while since I posted a basic/pretty/sexy nursing bra post, so here it goes, hope you like it!
It’s freezing and raining (or even better, snowing) outside, but shops have started stocking pretty flowery things already. H&M, as always, has the best maternity basics a pregnant gal can wish for. I really recommend the nursing vest, they are perfect for layering on cold winter nights when your child feeds several times a night (like mine).
