If you’re pregnant, chances are you’re feeling a tad uncomfortable now that the weather has started to heat up. Being pregnant comes with a whole host of lovely little ailments, including increased body temperature and water retention- both conditions that are made worse in the heat. So how do lovely Mamas to be keep their cool in the summer, and what are they wearing right now? Here are our favourite outfits currently, from some of our favourite maternity brands.
Babes with Babies
The lovely @ChelleMcCann, who is currently expecting her second child, told us that her Stella dress from Babes with Babies is her go-to outfit this summer, and we can certainly see why. The dress is loose fitting and flattering, designed to be worn throughout pregnancy and beyond (Chelle tells us this will be a constant when she is breastfeeding). It looks great dressed up, or casual, and when the weather gets a little cooler will look fabulous with tights too. We’ve teamed the dress with a chunky neon orange bib necklace for a quick splash of colour!
We love H&M for it’s non maternity wear too, but we spied a super dress over on Molly’s blog, Mother’s Always Right and we thought it deserved a mention! H&M’s maternity range is fab this summer, and for our outfit we chose bright pink chino shorts and navy blue cotton shirt, both of which are currently in the sale- so grab them now while you can!
As Seen On Screen is a great site for online shopping and they have quite an extensive maternity range too. We loved the two pack of jersey peg trousers in black or black spot, and teamed them with a bright pink vest top – perfect for warm summer evenings.
The Essential One
Summer isn’t complete without a splash in the pool, and we’re loving the selection of swimwear at The Essential One. In particular we love the red polka dot tankini and the navy and white spot tankini.
