Emergency shopping for the bump

I thought that after 6 years I would be used to the hot Adelaide summers but every year it is yet another struggle, especially now that I am pregnant I am not looking forward to the upcoming heat. The weather prediction for this weekend is rather scary (a staggering 36 degrees!) and I realised I don’t even have cool maternity clothes to wear! Luckily there is always Target to the rescue and with 20% off all womens clothing this week I quickly dropped by the Target Maternity department to grab some essentials for the weekend.

I was pretty chuffed to find that one of my favourite colours of this season made it to the maternity section too and judging by the few numbers that were left of this coral Striped Sleeveless Feeding Tank ($25) other pregnant mums liked it too. The longer length should cover up my baby bump until the end and of course the nursing access will be very convenient once baby has arrived.

The tank is available in other colours too but I thought this was nice and summery, plus it was a good excuse to grab myself a matching bracelet ($10). With the current 20% off promotion the nursing tanks cost just $20 each which is a great price for an essential item for new mums.

When I spotted this gorgeous Maternity Gathered Summer Skirt ($39) I knew I had to have it for my summer wardrobe, navy is such an easy colour and goes with almost anything. The stretchy waistband can be worn under or over your belly and offers a bit of extra support without being too tight. Of course I couldn’t resist scooping up a matching Striped Ruffle Maternity Tank ($25), just add some sandals or ballet flats and I have a complete outfit for a sunny day.

Only after I got home I found this Colour Block Woven Maternity Dress online, I think it looks very cute and the little belt is included (bonus!). I love the bright aqua band at the bottom and I do have some aqua sandals on my wishlist for this season so it would be a great match. Hopefully I’ll find it in store at my next visit, I have a bit of Christmas shopping left so I think it won’t be long until I am back.

Havoc Denim – Summer 2012

If you haven’t already now is the time to put away your dark winter clothes and swap them for fresh, vibrant colours that will bring out the summer feeling in all of us. The new Havoc Denim Summer range has recently arrived in stores all around Australia and stylish mums are snapping up their favourite pieces very quickly. So which items are the ones to look out for?

One of my favourites is the Girls 50’s Check Ruffle Top, a very sweet design featuring a classic red and white checkered fabric, cute shoulder ties and a diagonal neckline for a unique twist. The gorgeous model is wearing this style with the coloured denim mini shorts (available in green and fuchsia) but of course you can easily team it up with a pair of blue denim jeans, shorts or a skirt.

The ruffle trend can also be found in the new Havoc Denim Ruffle Dress. The dress offers a hip combination of a soft blue denim fabric, lots of ruffles and four large decorative buttons finished off with a lovely tie at the back. As always Havoc Denim is all about the details, every single garment is hand finished so you can sure to expect a unique garment that is of the highest quality.

And just because I have a soft spot for red I can’t help but show you the Girls Cotton Playsuit; cheerful, comfortable and lightweight for a warm summer day. Last summer my daughter wore her Havoc Denim playsuit all the time so I hope I can get my hands on this one too, it will no doubt be a favourite in no time. If you love Havoc Denim make sure you ‘like’ the Havoc Denim Facebook page, that way you’ll be the first to know about new arrivals and special sneak peeks!
