Outfit Out-Takes | Blogger Blooper Reel – Maternity Edition

Outfit Out-Takes | Blogger Blooper Reel – Maternity Edition

So, it turns out that being pregnant leads to even more outfit out-takes than usual. I mean, I'm clumsy at the best of times, but it's pretty hard to feel graceful when your body's a totally different shape from the one you're used to, and you're lugging around what feels ...

Dealing With Maternity Leave as a Blogger

Dealing With Maternity Leave as a Blogger

For the last few weeks, I've been telling any brands that ask me to collaborate with them that I'm currently "winding down for maternity leave" and unable to help. Then I've been quietly panicking just in case they look at the blog, see that I'm still publishing regular content on it, ...

Maternity Style | The Cream Dress

Maternity Style | The Cream Dress

So, this dress doesn't look the same as it did the last time I wore it, huh? This obviously doesn’t come as much of a surprise – I mean, I AM 32 weeks pregnant, now, so it would be pretty weird if I looked exactly the same, wouldn’t it? Like, the ...

My 3rd Trimester Maternity Essentials

My 3rd Trimester Maternity Essentials

Now that I'm in my third trimester, I'm finding that pregnancy has managed to come up with a whole new set of challenges - you know, just to keep me on my toes, I guess? Here are some of the hero products that have been getting me through it so far... 01. V-shaped ...

Maternity Style | What Would Audrey Do?

Maternity Style | What Would Audrey Do?

Guys! Guys! I found a jacket that still fits me! I can't even tell you how exciting this was for me... or how retrospectively embarrassing it is to realise that my day can now be made by a jacket, FFS. (Oh, who am I kidding: I've ALWAYS been able to get ...

Maternity Style | The Green Dress at 30 Weeks

Maternity Style | The Green Dress at 30 Weeks

OK, so, technically I was just 29 weeks and six days pregnant when these photos were taken, but my bump didn't change that much overnight, so I'm calling it 30 weeks: which is a number that seems almost as big as my belly is right now. (Actually, I don't really notice ...

Maternity Style | Black and Blush

Maternity Style | Black and Blush

I wasn't going to post these photos. They were taken just as the sun was going down (So although they look a bit dark, the sun was right in my eyes), the backdrop is boring, the outfit is basic, my hair hadn't been washed in two days and was being blown ...

Maternity Style | Mint coat and butterfly bracelet

Maternity Style | Mint coat and butterfly bracelet

  One of the best things about maternity clothes - from my point of view, at least - is that they tend to be pretty basic. So, for people like me, who love simple silhouettes and no-fuss dressing, pregnancy ends up being a pretty good excuse to just stick to things ...

Maternity Style | Blush & Blue

Maternity Style | Blush & Blue

This was one of those outfits that looked better in my head than it did in reality. You know the ones I mean? You get the idea for them while you're lying in bed one night, or in the shower the next morning, and you're all, "Ooh! I bet that will ...

Maternity Style | A new outfit formula

Maternity Style | A new outfit formula

You all know me, guys: once I find an outfit formula I like, I beat it into the ground, so here I am following up Wednesday's "midi dress, sweater and ankle boots" outfit with a midi skirt, sweater and ankle boots. So, that's TOTALLY different, yeah? Well, OK, it's not, really, but this ...

Maternity Style | Midi dress and ankle boots

Maternity Style | Midi dress and ankle boots

One of the unexpected - but very welcome - aspects of pregnancy for me has been the fact that it's forced me to venture ever-so-slightly out of my comfort zone, fashion-wise. (And everything-else-wise, actually: let's just say this has been one hell of a surreal year...) Take this outfit, for instance. ...

Maternity Style | The Black Ankle Pants

Maternity Style | The Black Ankle Pants

True confession # 1:  I totally had a pair of ballet flats stashed in my handbag the day we took these photos. I mean, sure, my feet don't feel any different right now, and nor does my centre of balance, so walking in heels feels exactly the same as it ...

Maternity Style | LBD, Take 2

Maternity Style | LBD, Take 2

  This post is a collaboration with Esprit I never thought I'd say it, but I think I'm finally starting to really appreciate the colour black. And, I mean, to be fair, I've always appreciated black ... on other people. In fact, I went through a phase in my early 20s when black ...

Maternity Style | The Pink Pleated Skirt

Maternity Style | The Pink Pleated Skirt

One of my biggest maternity style challenges so far - other than finding clothes that aren't black, obviously - has been putting together outfits that still feel like "me"... so I can't even tell you how happy the arrival of this ASOS maternity skirt made me. (Actually, I can't tell you ...

7 Things To Love About Maternity Wear

7 Things To Love About Maternity Wear

I know I've been complaining a lot about maternity wear lately, so today I thought I'd be uncharacteristically positive (I do that sometimes, just to keep you on your toes...), and list some of the things I love like about it instead. For instance... (Er, having come up with this brilliant ...

Maternity Style | The Basics

Maternity Style | The Basics

So, I wear sneakers now, apparently. Like, voluntarily, I mean. Not because I'm doing sport (I am definitely not doing sport...), and not just for comfort, either. I mean, I know no one will believe me when I say this, but, a) I've never found sneakers particularly comfortable (Something about the ...

Maternity Style | Pink & Grey

Maternity Style | Pink & Grey

Posted on 2 min read

So, I'm huge now. And yes, I'm totally just saying that to get it out of the way, so no one needs to go, "Wow, Amber, you're huge now!" - kind of the same way I'm always the first to point out a new zit, or anything else I'm feeling insecure ...

Maternity Style | Sporty Chic

Maternity Style | Sporty Chic

So, it turns out pregnancy is a really good opportunity to try out the whole "'capsule wardrobe" thing, huh? Seriously, it's been YEARS  since my wardrobe (or the usable part of it, at least...) has been this small, and although, strictly speaking, I know I probably have more than enough to get ...

Maternity Style | Little Black ( Spotted) Dress

Maternity Style | Little Black ( Spotted) Dress

So, I seem to have reached a point in this pregnancy where I basically don't have a waist any more, and all anyone ever wants to talk to me about is how huge I look. It's... kind of awkward, really. I know it's weird of me, but I just can't seem to ...

Maternity Clothes to Lounge In

Maternity Clothes to Lounge In

So, I've been doing a lot of lounging, lately. Like, a lot of lounging.* Seriously, though, can you blame me? I mean, this is the only time in my entire life when I've had a legitimate excuse to put my feet up, and you better believe I'll be milking it for all ...
