1) Describe your pregnancy style
Me, but with a (huge) bump! I decided from the start that I didn’t want to fall into the trap of dressing totally differently just because I was pregnant. It’s a challenge, but with careful shopping you can still keep your own style and identity.
2) What’s your favourite Seraphine piece?
I love Seraphine’s Black Knitted Mini Maternity Skirt– I wore it with an oversized denim chambray shirt and big black boots for a grungy look. Now I’m on the other side, so to speak, I’m obsessed with their nursing tops, particularly the bamboo vests that come in black or nude; they’re so comfortable and soft, and the longer length is really flattering.
3) What would be your go-to outfit?
When I was pregnant my favourite look was black skinny maternity jeans, an oversized shirt, heels and lots of jewellery.
4) Fitted or flowing for your bump?
In the earlier stages, fitted, then more flowing as I got bigger! If you’re doing the baggy look, I always made sure that some of my outfit was fitted (e.g. jeans, or a short skirt so you can see your legs) so I didn’t look like too much of a walking tent!
5) Do you have any top tips to share with other pregnant mums?
Experiment with makeup and jewellery rather than concentrating on clothing, especially in the later stages- I dyed my hair pink at one stage, always wore bright red lipstick and bought loads of great earrings.
