We had a little rare time off! After 3 attempts at a holiday abroad we finally made it to Mallorca, a chance to test out some brand new bump-friendly styles & have some screen-free time with family.

Having taken on a Distribution Centre this year to fulfil all our orders, it's the first holiday we've had in 6 years where your orders could continue to be sent without disruption and a big new delivery received; it was a relief to know everything was being handled and no one disappointed!

At 5 months pregnant it was a fun opportunity to test out some of our new styles that can fit in a bump! I sized up to a 12 in the Gina disc hem dress - LOVED this bright yellow for the last night of our trip, perfect with a tan & great stretch for comfortable wear.

I also roped in my lovely Mum! She's a shy model but its amazing to see her in our designs; I genuinely believe in no limits on age for wearing what you love - it's terrible to hear 'I can't wear that' - you can wear what you feel great in! 

She loved the Skye jumpsuit; a different style for her but she loved the comfort, the lightness of the flowing chiffon & the way you can easily wear a bra!

She also had the Ravello lemon print dress. an IDEAL summer style - bright, fresh & figure-flattering wrap style.

You can't beat a white dress on holiday, can you?!

and this one has POCKETS! there's just something about pockets in a dress... 

One of our newest arrivals, just arrived online this week - it was the first chance I had to wear it & it was so good with a bump. Lightweight & airy, fitted across the bodice but comfortable as a 'non maternity' maternity style. 

Again I sized up for a little more room.

I also tried out this stunning blue dress, the 'Delphine' floral ruche midi - not yet in stock but arriving early August.

With a shirred elastic waistband, it's stretchy & so comfy! A style that could grow with you & lots of room for easy movement - trust me I wore it for dinner and running after a toddler at the mini disco...

It would be gorgeous for a Summer Wedding or baby shower, of course wearable for Mums-to-be and without a bump too.  It's a style I look forward to wearing next Summer too once baby is here, a timeless & flattering silhouette.

So thank you for your patience with any queries - keeping up with instant messenger, emails, Instagram & Facebook was a bit of a juggle.. (even though I wasn't on the cocktails!)

We've lots of exciting new styles to come, more beautiful Summer pieces and new additions to our White Collection. Keep a lookout on our Social Media for some sneak peeks and details of when new pieces will be here.
