It feels like it got quite chilly in Melbourne this past week. It’s official, summer is gone and we have to accept it. It is never that easy to say goodbye though, is it? Until you think about the fashion...
If you’re pregnant, you’ll not only be dreaming of warm baths, hot tea and log fires but you’ll probably be dreaming of making some cosy some additions to your wardrobe. Mainly so you and the bub can stay snug but what a perfect opportunity to add some Autumn fashion into your wardrobe. Here are some key essentials for looking stylish whilst keeping toasty:
These are essential, in our eyes. Throw them on to add an extra layer and you’ll not only be warm but you’ll look fab too. An easy way to look a bit smarter, but you’ll be wearing it long after the baby has arrived we’re sure. It’s pretty good for a cover whilst breastfeeding too. We are all about those double up pieces!
Big chunky knit
This gorgeous dark olive chunky knit will be fine to wear over your bump if you get a target style. This would go perfectly with a pair of black maternity jeans and some long boots, or it could even be worn with a skirt and some ankle boots. It’s versatile AND warm, a double win in our eyes!!
Top tip: you don’t have to always buy maternity, you can just buy bigger and it should do the trick!
Keep them on hand, always, for a quick fix to feeling warm when in the great outdoors. Good news is, there are SO many options to choose from – wooly, wide brim felt, even a nice cord cap will do the trick. Maybe even treat yourself to a couple to change up your outfits to match your mood.
The more pregnant you get, the harder it is to get around. So we recommend baring that in mind when it comes to the size of the heal on your boot. These gorgeous ones are the perfect height and you can chose from taupe or a chic black.
A staple. An absolute staple. Dress them up, dress them down, but whatever you do you’ll be comfortable! These ones from ASOS tick all the boxes AND they have a removable bump band so they can change shape as you do. You can simply remove it to continue wearing the jeans after pregnancy!
Slip your tootsies into these socks from Scottish cashmere Australia and you’ll be sure to keep the cold at bay! You can choose from 15 different colours and they are a ‘real treat for your feet’. Nothing worse than having cold feet.
Chunky knit blanket
Cosy up under a chunky knit blanket when you’re at home, staying in from the elements. These gorgeous merino wool ones by closely knit are guaranteed to not only add style but comfort to your home. Oh and you can move it to the nursery when you’re little one finally arrives too. It can add a great pop of colour and will keep you both warm whilst in your nursery chair
Without a doubt the best thing to brighten up a mood, an outfit or the weather is a slick of lipstick. YSL have the dreamiest range, with some lovely deep autumnal reds that will make you feel and look rosier than ever. Keep it in your handbag and you’ll never be flustered. You can even get the case engraved, for no extra cost. Hmm that'll be 'To Me, Love Me' thanks.
We all know they are a girls best friend, pregnant, baby or none of the above! Why not treat yourself to one you can use when the little one has arrived? The Carrie will be your best friend; she is perfect for maternity leave, a hospital bag and a baby bag when the time comes. She has an extendable base for the lite packer, and the over packer. You choose your mood!
