Baby Baker Friday - A M&Co Spring Style Up

I've decided that Friday's on the blog are now going to be dedicated to my new found pregnancy status.

Whilst I know this won't please everyone, it's something I really want to do - after all being pregnant is a huge thing to be happening in my life and I really want to share bits and pieces of what is going on amongst these pages.

So here we go

~ Baby Baker Friday ~

One thing is for sure, I'm piling on the pounds at the moment.

Obviously I knew this was going to happen - Baby Baker demands it - but perhaps not quite so quickly though...

However this is totally my own fault for continually stuffing my greedy face with every calorific thing I can lay my hands on - but the changing shape, well it's just taking a little getting used to that's all.

...especially when one of my very cheeky Year 9 students called me (jokingly - in a very joking context - but still...) "a fat sh*t" today...
(I actually think he was more surprised than I was that the words popped out of his mouth!)

~ Bring on the maternity wear ~

And thank goodness I have a few little pieces tucked away in my wardrobe already eh.

Now I've had the pleasure of working with M&Co before (M&Co Christmas Party) so when they emailed me recently regarding a little pregnancy project they had in mind I couldn't wait to get started.

M&Co sent me a very pretty maternity navy floral print tunic top from one of their featured ranges, Heavenly Bump, and I have to say I really rather like it

In the back of my mind I think I've always had the idea that maternity clothes are fairly unflattering and a little frumpy, but judging by this little number, I couldn't be more wrong.

It is so cute

A lovely navy blue colour with clusters of dainty little flowers scattered all over it with a mid-thigh length (the front obviously hangs slightly longer than the back on the hanger to accommodate the ever growing bump).


The tunic is made from a lightweight jersey material and has a flattering, cleavage peeping (cheeky!) V-shaped neck line with an equally flattering, slightly gathered detail to the bust area which helps the material just skim over the bump nicely

~ Very comfy ~

Now personally, I think this tunic would be perfect for those more chilled out, relaxed kind of days...

~ popping to the park during the school holidays...

~ meeting friends for a coffee and a catch-up...

The kind of days where you need to make an effort (much more than PJs and a baggy tshirt anyway) without going too overboard.

So how would I wear it?

Well, I'm really not all too great with heels at the best of times, so on a chilled out spring afternoon, I think it has to be a pair of flats really hasn't it.

A pair of cream, peep-toe flats and a pair of very comfy, bump covering, stretchy denim style jeggings

Yep, I think that will do nicely.

The style of the tunic really helps to smarten up the other items a lot and because of it's length it helps to cover over my ever growing bum too...

The little sleeves are a really pretty little detail...and they also help to cover up the bits that may need to be hidden for a little while...

And I'm still kind of getting used to the fact that I have boobies at the moment, and this top certainly helps to show them off a little but without being too revealing

Like I said, I really like this top and can easily see myself wearing it as Baby Baker continues to grow.

Heavenly Bump - I'm certainly a fan
