When I received a package full of beautiful maternity wear from Jojo Maman Bebe a few weeks ago, my head was full of ideas: whimsical autumnal photos in the local woodland area, surrounded by crisp fallen leaves while the sun shone... Except, it turned cold. And it rained. And now the beautiful woodland area is muddy and the trees are naked. So instead I decided I'd stay home, in the warm and dry, to show you my gorgeous new breton striped maternity and nursing jumper.
Regular readers and followers on Instagram will know that I have a bit of a thing for stripes. I'm drawn to them like a magpie is drawn to shiny objects, I just can't resist and the boys and I are often dressed in stripes. So as you would expect my maternity wardrobe is also full of stripy clothes! As soon as I spotted the Breton Maternity & Nursing Jumper I was sold. It comes in two colourways: ecru with navy stripes and navy with ecru stripes. They are both gorgeous, but I went for the ecru with navy stripes. To me that is classic nautical chic.
The jumper is so soft, made with a comfortable cotton mix. It is fairly long, at 28 inches in length; on my 5'2 stature the jumper just about covers my bottom, while on someone taller it would probably sit on the hips. It is designed to fit comfortably during pregnancy, accommodating a growing bump, and after pregnancy as well. The jumper has poppers down each side, from the armpit to the hemline to allow for easy access when breastfeeding.
I've been pairing my jumper with some skinny over-the-bump maternity jeans that I picked up in New Look. The whole look works well with either flats like my Converse hi-tops or my chunky tan ankle boots. I can see myself living in this outfit over the winter months, it's just so warm and comfortable, as well as being flattering to my growing shape and being totally on trend. Breton stripes will never go out of style!
What's your go-to maternity look?
With thanks to Jojo Maman Bebe for sending this gorgeous jumper to feature.
