Style The Bump: Yummy Mummy Maternity Ultimate Tank Top and Extra Length Leggings.

Apr 27, 2017

I had so much fun this month showing off my take on the Yummy Mummy Maternity BodyWear MultiWear Collection and left the best for last! I live in my Extra Length Leggings  and Ultimate Tank Top, combining these two with all my favourite pieces to create stylish yet comfortable looks for any occasion.

Look 1: Casual “me-time”.

Black leggings is a staple in any closet but these leggings will be your best maternity buy (even after baby is born). The extra length refers to the extended top part that stretches over your tummy hugging and supporting your bump. Add a tank top and you have the basics for an endless amount of outfit combos.

Look 1; my favourite plaid shirt (that can’t button-up at the moment), distressed baseball cap, sneakers and a choker as an ode to the 90’s. Easy and comfy for some “me-time” outings.Other details:

Black velvet chocker from Woolworths.

Stunning Leather Duffel Bag by Alex & Marla.

Gorgeous white leather sneakers from Country Road available at Woolworths.

Look 2: Mamma on the run!

TOP TIP: Don’t forget about your button shirts during pregnancy. They make for great “faux jackets” and hide that preggy muffin top you may have been noticing. Denim is a classic, add a hat to hide your bedhead and glam up with accessories for a no-fuss yet stylish look.

Perfect for running those mommy errands. Other details:

Look 3: Day dates with your mama-squad.

I love dressing up but try to keep it simple, especially during pregnancy. (You’re carrying enough extra weight after all…). Waterfall cardigans for the win, perfectly covering up the extra junk in my trunk, high heels (if you dare) that make you look slimmer in an instant and a cute clutch. I’m also totally obsessed with the knotted long leather necklaces making the rounds.Other details:

ZANA embroidered leather clutch.

Fergalicious Heels by Fergie Footwear.

And flowers for your gal pal of course.

Look 4: Lets meet!

I will confess, most of my meetings are done via email / social media where pj’s are my outfit of choice but every now and again I get to meet incredible mompreneurs and other creatives face to face. Thanks to the long length of the Ultimate tank top, it can easily be paired with cute jackets. This green army jacket has been in my closet for 10 years and I just love how utility wear keeps sticking around year after year.

Once again I go for killers heels, trendy accessories and my ZANA laptop sleeve! Let’s get brainstorming…Other details:

Earrings and black velvet chocker by Woolworhts.

Stack rings also Dear Rae and Pernickety Jewellery.

Look 5: Autumn styling!

THE TRENCH! An absolute MUST! I think Forever New has the most gorgeous styles, year after year. From the cut, colour and the super stylish silhouette it creates… Every woman needs a trench coat to keep her warm and make her feel like a super model. My favourite part is the way a trench can be tied at the back to create the illusion of an hour glass figure. Very Audrey Hepburn, classically feminine and beautiful.

Go the distance and pop on a large brim felt hat, cool boots and to-die-for handbag. Now your ready to take on ANYTHING!Other details:
