Worn by A-listers Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba and Halle Berry (among others!), Brit maternity brand Séraphine now has the royal seal of approval with a recent sighting of Kate Middleton wearing one of its dresses.
It’s easy to see why Kate has stocked up on Séraphine‘s dresses; the supersoft jersey, classic colours and timeless styles flatter your bump and take you through the seasons during your pregnancy thanks to some great layering options also on offer.
I was invited to select a dress from Séraphine‘s spring/summer collection so I chose this navy knot front dress. In my last pregnancy I went for a lot of body-con and stuck to my jeans so I’m experimenting more this time and thought this piece would be a great basic to dress up or down.
This look was for a day at the office but would equally work for an evening or lunch out. Flats would dress it down for the school run or perhaps a picnic and if you need something smarter than a biker jacket, just swap for a tailored jacket. I’ve always loved combining black and navy and wearing leather alongside fluid jersey adds interest.

If you’re anything like me, pregnant or not it’s always fun to guess what’s in the bump. Is it a boy? Is it a girl? Well, with the royal baby it shouldn’t be too long before we find out but in the mean time why not partake in a little harmless guessing game!
Séraphine are asking just that, with a two week tongue-in-cheek bus campaign running in central London right now through Regent’s Street and the Kensington area, and an online competition that invites you to guess the royal baby name. Get it right and you could win a £1000 maternity wardrobe worthy of a princess.
I’ve placed my bet, what’s your guess? (And if you’re not pregnant you can still enter and pass the prize onto a friend, or me of course!)
