Spring/Summer // Fashion Update {Maternity and Non} and the Straw Bag Edit

April 05, 2019

I *think* we can just about put away the knitwear and thick coats for the season now? Although you know our Great British weather, always keeping us on our toes. Last weekend was soo warm and beautiful, but then you get the odd cold patch still as I guess it's still only April. Anyway, that sunshine and the huge new range of dresses and straw bags in the shops has got me excited for summer and I may have got a little carried away with some online shopping. I've had a few messages from people asking for a new fashion post, which at first I was hesitant to share with half of my wardrobe being maternity focused right now, but actually I realised that there are some really gorgeous pieces which will work whether you've got a bump or not. Along with my favourite straw bags which are everywhere this season much to my delight. this post contains some affiliate links.

Such a pretty blouse. Albeit, a little spendy, use U9L8 for 20% off.

This year's version of my favourite ever broderie blouse.

Or this. - I seem to be drawn to khaki right now.

This non-maternity shirt dress would work with or without a bump. I've sized up so it's roomy, also breastfeeding friendly and cool for the summer.

Also comes in denim, here.

I'm sure you know by now my penchant for white broderie. And I managed to find two maternity versions! This top, online here.

I'm wearing it with these comfy, maternity, shorts.

I really love white for the summer, and this dress {non-maternity} works well when sizing up, or take your regular size if not pregnant.

An easy wearing, good value, summer button dress which comes in a few colours. Non maternity.

Green button maternity dress. That would be flattering, and feeding friendly, for afterwards too. Or this non-maternity, similar version.

I got so much wear last year out of this style of top, to go with jeans or a midi skirt.

Or this, cute cami version. - I'm going to stock up for wearing after the baby is here.

Non-maternity leopard dress, good price and stretchy, good for the beach.

The green-maternity version of this dress has now disappeared offline! But this non-maternity version online here.

This top, non maternity, for stripey bright perfection. - so many colour combos to choose from.

I love this look for Spring days with this maternity skirt.

I have got so much wear out of this dress so far. And so has the rest of Instagram it seems! Gorgeous Spring print to dress up or down.

I have this white version which I wore so much on our last trip away, but love this yellow too to throw on over a bikini.

Big fan of the colours on this breton, for cooler days.

Have you seeeeen the new version of my favourite ever sandals? I literally wear mine to death, they last for years, and feel like I really *need* this new edition.

And then alll the straw bags. Even Primark has a huge selection this season! Perfect for summer days.

This bargain with two handles for either carrying or slinging across your shoulder.

And finally, you all know how much I love a straw hat in the summer.

Excited for proper sandal wearing weather to hit! We surely can't have a summer like last year's ahead though?
