A Poor Pregnant Shopping Trip Turned Good.

It originally started out as an ‘I NEED work trousers shopping trip’.


But after walking around the likes of New Look, Topshop, River Island, Next, Dorothy Perkins – even knowing they had maternity ranges but apparently not in store, it’s all online, and having what I will gracefully call ‘a hissy fit’ due to finding this out – I decided to just shop.

I thought, why not just buy a size bigger from the standard collections and be happy.


Then, just as all hope was lost, we were told H&M had a maternity section. IN STORE!
Although I  always hear grand things about H&M, it’s not a shop I generally shop in. But, I NEEDED work trousers, so today was not a day to complain. So off we went and yes, there was a (small) but adequate maternity section, WITH black work trousers!


£97 later – a pair of work trousers, a jumper dress, a top for work and a pair of jeans, I had a smile on my face. I then decided to take myself to Topshop for some jumpers. I bought this lovely horse print jumper, a grey/charcoal thin long sleeved top and an olive/army coloured drop hem oversized T-Shirt.

We also stopped by Matalan for some work type jumpers, where I bought this grey jumper, gold/brown cardigan, which I thought would go well for dressing up simple tees etc for the coming festive season and this lovely purple/maroon sequin jumper.

I learned this day that I should never doubt myself or the shops, there’ll ALWAYS be something to buy.
