Dressing the bump – H&M cropped animal print top

So, I stopped by Topshop the other day to check out their maternity range. I left empty-handed (apart from a pair of leggings) as the collection failed to impress me, especially when you consider their pretty high prices.

Instead I stopped by always cheap and reliable H&M where I bought this cropped viscose top for £13.

I haven’t really had any weird pregnancy-related food cravings, but when it comes to clothes I don’t seem to be able to resist animal print at the moment. Very strange.

Here I’m wearing it with converse boots (bought many many years ago in India), a long viscose skirt from H&M and a wooden second-hand bracelet, found in Chiswick (notice how I’ve colour-coordinated boots w. bracelet….wohooo).

Dressing the bump – H&M python print dress

My old cold has been substituted by a new one. Great. But in between being sick I did manage to pop into H&M at Regent Street.

I was there to buy socks and leggings,  but their sale is still on and I just couldn’t resist the flirty looks from this python print dress.

It is made from a mix of cotton and modal and is so comfortable and best of all: stretchy. It was half price and only cost 15 pounds.

Topshop Maternity Favourites

My cold is slowly getting better, and today I’ve even had the energy to check out Topshop’s  brilliant maternity range. Online that is, as my health is not really ready for the over-crowded flagship store at Oxford Street.

Anyways, it’s always a good idea to have a clear idea about what you’re after before heading into the high street clothes jungle. Here are a few of my favourites that I’ll be checking out IRL soon:

Maternity tan grandad style collarless blouse. £35.

Love the colour and the comfy factor. It would look really nice with a pair of skinny black jeans. Or maybe with the tan blouse above.

Maternity camel ottoman bodycon skirt with an elasticated waist. £25.

Again, nice colour! I would wear it with a tight black top, heels and a cropped jacket.

Maternity navy teddy tunic with gold military style buttons on shoulders. £35.

Simple and stylish and I love the navy/gold buttons combination which saves it from being boring. Comes in this colour as well.

Maternity grey baxter skinny jeans with front panel elasticated support. £40.

Last, but not least, the jeans. Topshop make really good maternity jeans. I know because my friend has given my a pair of her old ones that I’m wearing right now. They’re almost identical to the pair below but in a very light blue colour, so they’ll be perfect for summer.

Most of Topshop’s jeans are skinny and have a wide elastic band under the stomach which makes them really comfy.
