Maternity Style Trends For Summer

women fashion, women clothing, dresses, summer fashion, pregnancy, tips + tricks

This coming summer is shaping up to be a scorcher. Make sure you have the wardrobe to suit. The following article lists the upcoming trends. Here’s a little secret from me to you; maternity trends are the same as normal old trends. The difference is in the way you wear them. Your homework is to find a way to make them work for you. You want to put your unique spin on the following:

Chic

Chic can be hard to pull off without adding layers. Layers are the last thing you want during summer. Pull off chic over summer by buying yourself a wrap dress. You may have seen Kate Middleton rocking one. This look is great for work and casual occasions. It’s also a great style because the fit embraces your bump.

Stripes

When are they never in? Honestly, stripes are always a good ‘go to’ in times of doubt. I don’t know where I would be without stripes… Scratch that, I would be in the corner of the room repeating the phrase “I have nothing to wear.” Make stripes a little more summer by going for colour. Look for a dress with straps, skirt, short or singlet. There are lots of options out there.

Pastels

Pastels are a great way to pull off feminine without looking girly. It’s pink for the mature without losing the fun or the girly sweetness. It’s all about staying away from dark colors in the summer. Try color blocking with pastels. Block colors streamline the figure, making you appear taller and leaner.

Emerald

This is the main color of obsession for this summer. Go extremely bold with a pair of emerald green jeans. Don’t be afraid to make a statement. If you feel jeans aren’t going to be suitable for this season, there are plenty of other options.

Jumper

It’s rare but once in a while there is a cool night in summer. You just need something light to throw over what you’re wearing. Go with something light and bright. The baggy look is in. It gives an instant appeal of casually cool. Who doesn’t want to look like that just happened to roll out of bed looking fabulous?

Ahoy

Say ahoy to sailor stripes. This is different from the stripes mentioned earlier. There is not a selection of colors to choose from. To pull off this look the stripes must be navy blue and white. The best thing about this trend is it’s not really seasonal. You can dress it up with a jacket and scarf for winter. It looks great with statement jewelry too. Perfect!

Mum’s Two Cents

Pregnancy was one of the most fascinating phases of my life as a woman. To say that I thoroughly enjoyed my pregnancy is such an understatement! It was then that I discovered things I never knew about myself. It was also then when I started fully reveling in my womanhood and enjoying little girly treats like foot spa, pedicure {I had my very first when I was several months pregnant!}, and a photo shoot with a bunch of other pregnant ladies who all happened to be my friend!  :heart:

It might have been a tad frustrating trying to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes while struggling to be stylish and comfortable all at the same time, but dressing up when I was pregnant was as interesting as the little beansprout tickling my protruding bump every so often. After all, pregnant women gets all the attention and no one wants to be seen looking drab. Putting colorful and comfy clothes and dresses is a surefire way to make anyone happy, and it is just exactly what pregnant women needed!

NEW YORK, April 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — A month ago, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) published a piece of news about purchasing eyeglasses online; a month later, this news has already been commented on by thousands of people. With the rise of purchasing eyeglasses online, more and more eyeglass wearers have begun to focus their attention on it. However, with regard to buying eyewear online, some support it while others still have doubts about it. What has turned numerous eyeglass wearers from traditional brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores to online ones? Firmoo’s slogan tells you everything: Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way.

Most eyeglasses wearers have purchased eyeglasses at traditional eyeglass stores. Nevertheless, due to the limited styles and unaffordable prices, consumers have had to regard eyeglasses as a medical tool used to correct vision instead of a fashion accessory. But now, with the emergence of online eyeglass shopping, we can get fashionable eyeglasses at reasonable prices. Among the many online eyeglass stores, Firmoo, which combines fashion and economy, is undoubtedly the most outstanding one.

As we all know, we usually have to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of glasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Yet, you can get the same pair of glasses from online eyeglass stores at a fraction of the price. For this reason, buying glasses online is, so to speak, quite an economical way to get eyeglasses. Among the numerous online optical stores, Firmoo is the most economic one. Customers can usually get their beloved glasses at a price that is up to 90% lower than that in brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Furthermore, new customers can even get their first pair for FREE there. Some people may doubt the quality, safety, durability, etc. of eyeglasses purchased online, but there is no need to worry when purchasing from Firmoo. Firstly, all glasses provided by Firmoo are carefully manufactured by skilled workers and are strictly inspected by professional opticians before shipment, thus ensuring the quality and safety of glasses; secondly, Firmoo has developed a try-on tool for customers to try their beloved eyeglasses on so as to see how they look on them; thirdly, Firmoo has a customer service team that has always been committed to offering their valued customers the best service; lastly, all glasses available at Firmoo are provided by their affiliated factory, which is why they can offer eyeglasses at such a low price.

“We have dozens of affiliated eyeglasses factories which enable us to provide our customers with the most affordable eyeglasses around because there are no middlemen in between. Meanwhile, we have devoted ourselves to providing our valued customers with fashionable and aesthetic eyeglasses,” said Patrick Li, Firmoo’s CEO.

Compared with purchasing eyeglasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores, purchasing eyeglasses online is not only more economical but also enables customers to select from more fashion elements. This is due to Firmoo meticulously picking several hundred classic styles from thousands of eyeglass models.

Firmoo CEO Patrick Li also added, “Our team has selected hundreds of classical and fashionable styles in order to save time for our customers when they are picking eyeglasses.”

So what do online eyeglass stores bring to us? We believe the answer is fashion and frugality.

in search for a drawstring sundress

women fashion, women clothing, summer fashion, dresses

The last time I had worn a dress was when I was in my third trimester of pregnancy + somehow I miss feeling like a dainty girl dressed in a dainty, yellow dress, so can anybody tell this mum where to find a drawstring sundress? I have been wanting to have one + I am thinking it will be a perfect outfit to wear when I go out with the little man on Easter. It’s design + if I get lucky to find the perfect color, will be a great article of clothing to wear this summer, too. I spotted this drawstring dress while watching the telly some weeks ago + planned to get one for myself, but I’ve recently scoured online shops upon online shops in search for one, but I was not lucky.  I was not very fortunate to find one anywhere. :(

I have tried numerous online shops in some of the prominent social media where these shops have mushroomed, too, + although I have found several hundreds of lovely dress designs, I was not lucky to find the one that I was looking for.

I also chanced upon Damart, which is a well-know online shop based in the UK + found this lovely sundress. I would have loved to give up the search for the drawstring dress to settle for this, but you know too well that I have a tight budget + that I am such a cheapskate, right? ;)

It wouldn’t hurt admiring this dress, right, + today might just be the lucky day that I find that elusive drawstring dress. Wish me luck, would you? ;)
