3 Versatile Workwear Pieces
As women we all have those wardrobe meltdowns where nothing we see appeals to us anymore, whether it’s because there has been a change in seasons, we’ve had the same clothes for a long time or they have simply gone out of fashion.
When pregnant you cruise along nicely and then all of a sudden over night BAM you’re out of the ‘everything I wear still fits’ stage to the ‘oh no, I have nothing to wear' stage and the meltdown starts all over again.
Working whilst pregnant can be just as challenging in the wardrobe department but if you’re smart, buying a few versatile maternity pieces can transform your wardrobe for not only work but many a casual occasion as well.
As we head into the cold season, the Noppies Julie Ruched Dress is perfect for the office or a night out. Simply add a jacket for a sophisticated corporate look or team it with tights and boots for a night out. The great thing about this dress is its versatility. Perfect!
You can’t go past the Floressa Luca Foldover Skirt as one of your key items. Made of jersey material, the skirt has a fold over waistband, a straight style cut, with an overlocked hem. With it’s versatile waistband this skirt can be worn over belly or folded under bump. A change in top or blouse can transform this piece from your standard corporate workwear to casual day wear and glam it up an evening out.
My third favourite staple has to be a pair of comfortable pants. The Floressa Dion Skinny Pants are again perfect for the office or a movie with the girls. With a sleek tailored look and foldover waitband for comfort, you’ll love the number of options this one piece gives you. Whether it be heels or flats, casual top or blouse, this will fast become one of your favourite items during pregnancy and beyond.

Avoiding Excessive Weight Gain During Pregnancy
While it’s natural and healthy for women to gain weight during pregnancy, excess weight gain can actually be harmful for both mum and baby.

On the other hand, doctors generally don’t recommend dieting while pregnant either. The safest thing for expectant mums to do is simply avoid gaining too much weight in the first place, so here are some tips.
