Have a lovely weekend

by Sofia   -   in Interior design

Toivottavasti viikkosi on ollut onnistunut! Omani on ollut vähän niin ja näin. Hyviä ja vähemmän hyviä hetkiä vuorotellen. Sitähän elämä on. Viikonloppuna aion ottaa rennosti. En kiirehdi mihinkään. Vielä yksi kuppi kahvia sängyssä on päiväni motto jo tänään. Jaoin vähän kuvia olohuoneestamme, joku näistä olikin jo nähtävillä One Design Clubin haastattelussani. Voit lukea tekstin täältä.

I hope you are all having a good week. Mine has been a bit of this and then a bit of that. But all in all it seems to be ending in a positive note. But I think I will give myself permission to drink one extra cappuccino under the covers in my nightie before facing the world. Sometimes a girl needs to treat herself. And sometimes for two days in a row. But while I´m at it I might as well share some more home decor pictures as you seem to all like them the best. You may have seen a picture or two of this room at my One Design Club feature.

I love that sweats are back. Wether for expecting mama´s or for the rest of us. And that they are now styled with shirts or loose collars and coats for actual outfits. Yes for running errands or taking you first born to music play school while uncomfortably preggo! It make life a little better.

One more time, yes. I mean, add a cute cream cashmere beanie and a chunky scarf and this is an outfit.

Maternity part one

by Sofia   -   in Shopping

I thought I would venture outside of my own needs and share some lovely maternity clothes with you. I actually stumbled upon a pretty maternity label on Instagram and it drew me down a rabbit hole. I have been pinning some favourites on Pinterest and I hope I didn´t get some friends too excited about the possible prospect of me doing it for myself.

When I found out I was first pregnant, now 12 years ago quite exactly, the maternity clothes scene felt a lot less abundant and the online shopping game was not as strong either. So much changes in what feels like such a little time. But my philosophy for maternity wear has not changed as much. I would still buy very good basics, just a few classic pieces. And some super comfortable loungewear. I would also get a few pretty tops and a dresses. Then I would focus on accessorising nicely and perhaps finding some pieces that are not maternity but fit a bump and can also be used afterwards like certain types of cardigans or poncho´s. Also shoes are important. Some women like me can wear their old shoes throughout pregnancy, some go up a size. Probably a pair of very comfortable, supportive but good looking sneakers could be on your shopping list if you don´t have a pair. I used heels a lot less and loved ballerina shoes instead. Or choose a shorter and a bit chunkier heel that has more support. Use scarves, jewellery and hair accessories to show off your personal style and bags are obviously a constant.

Here is my extensive list of some pretty maternity clothes that are on the market now. I would pick and choose the key items I feel like I would use the most. I hope some of you will find this post helpful! I have included clothes from different price points. Maybe most of you will find they would rather put the money towards a chunky cashmere cardigan and a pair of Chanel flats that can be used forever and buy the maternity jeans for less. I would. You only wear them for less than a year. But I would probably buy a nice, good quality maternity button down to wear often and a pretty dress that fits nicely and makes me feel like a super maman au lait.

I love to wear a button down shirt. Many normal pieces can be worn with a belly but a button down shirt is not one of them. I would splurge on at least one good shirt like this Hatch model in white and/or in stripes. The light blue one is also gorgeous.

 I would pair it with some very classic middle blue jeans.

Or some white jeans for Spring and Summer. This whole look would be great with sneakers or loafers and with some bracelets, earrings or whatever it is you like wearing. For colder days also some ankle booties would look great. Or white Converse or Superga for the summer. I think this would definitely be my starting point for a maternity capsule wardrobe.
