Gwen’s Maternity Style

With Gwen Stefani and Husband Gavin Rossdale welcoming son Apollo Bowie Flynn into the world last week; find my last post on Gwen HERE it has given me the opportunity to look back at some of Gwen’s fabulous maternity style!

Although Gwen’s look isn’t everybody’s come of tea, you can’t deny the girl has impeccable style! Wether this is down to a stylist or entirely on her own, Gwen could where a bin liner and make it look like its straight off the catwalk from LFW. (London Fashion Week)

Ive picked out some of my favourite looks from Gwen’s time of being pregnant, and sourced where you can find similar items below.

Blushing bumps !

If your looking for a gorgeous maternity brand that will take you from Bump to Mum without breaking the bank, look no further than Pink Blush Maternity.

Maternity wear can be tricky to find at affordable prices whilst still keeping the quality, let alone something that you could still wear after your bump has gone, but Ive found just the ticket. Although Pink Blush Maternity is based in America, they do ship world wide, and I received my order (to the UK) within a week of ordering which is amazing !! Sometimes even buying items from the UK to deliver to the UK can take that long so PBM gets a gold star for that.

I chose the Black studded Jumper which you can find HERE – Im a size 10 and ordered a medium, So the sizes are quite true to size, but if your at the beginning of your pregnancy I would maybe order a size bigger just to be on the safe side.

If your looking for a cocktail dress or just something to slouch around in Pink Blush Maternity will have it. Plus they have 60% off at the moment plus FREE shipping for US orders. What is not to LOVE about that? If you have anything to contribute to this article please do so below, I would love to hear from you 🙂
