Lady Kate is one of those people. One of the charming, lovely and bubbly people that nothing seems to get them down. The moment I met her I felt like I’d know her forever. And I hand’t. Obviously. She writes a blog recently renamed Kate’s Fab Four {renamed from Kate & Michael + 3 after the addition of baby boy number 4 in January!}. I’ve been lucky enough to make over Kate’s blog not once, but twice. So, I like, love, love her. And as for her style, the VERY second I discover I’m preggers, I’m hitting her blog for inspiration, clothes wise. And easy peasy pregnancy wise. Now, let’s check out Kate’s baby carrying style.

 

I never thought keeping my bump covered would be seen as stylish. I certainly never set out to be stylish. When Jack was born I knew I wanted to dress like a girly girl, being the mother of a boy (and eventually 3 more boys) I had a feeling I would end up as ‘one of the boys’ otherwise. 

These days dressing the bump had as much to do with practicality as it did with pretty. Can I sit on the floor and play cars in this dress/skirt comfortably? Will this top still look nice after carrying around a toddler for hours? Will this pattern cover the food splatters from cooking dinner before school pick up? I love to add a fun accessory here and there, my pearl necklace (love from Target) was a big favourite this pregnancy, along with my cute flower brooches (love from Hayley at Unique Journey)

As I got bigger dresses were far more comfortable and easier to cover the growing bump without feeling like I was pulling things down to keep my belly away. An unhealthy dose of pink chucked in with some ruffles and there you go, bump style a la Kate Style!

  • I’ll be channelling my mother here…..food splatters? wear an apron….
    (I can hear her now, she’s been dead for eight years)
    She popped into my head the moment read food splatters.

    • Haha. I’m pretty sure we ALL end up sounding like our Mum’s sooner rather than later.

  • Kate

    hehe I really do need to get my aprons out more often. Its usually just stirring the slow cooker or something quick that doesn’t involve the apron : )

  • Gorgeous piccys! Kate has beautiful baby (and post) style! xx
