Summer shopping finds to buy 2019

*Affiliate links.

Summer is here and it is now time to think of summer shopping, but the weather feels and looks like autumn! The other day, my daughter asked me if it was autumn already and why we didn’t have any sunshine if it was summer. I guess she will in time get used to the confused British weather. Last summer was an exception. We were spoilt rotten, but back to reality now. The fact still remains  that this is summer, so if you are in need of some summer shopping finds to buy, you may like this post.

Why I hate trying on clothes in the changing room

I do 98% of my shopping online. Online shopping is convenient for me and it suits my current lifestyle as I hardly ever go anywhere. I rather pay a delivery charge and try the clothes in the comfort of my home, than head off to a shopping mall. However there are times when I have to go into a store to shop. I prefer buying shoes and jeans in store because I need to make sure they fit. The only time I shop for these online is when I know for a fact that they would suit because I have bought similar pieces/pairs before from the same store. So what happens when I have to go into a mall to shop and use the changing rooms? I just do it and get it over it quickly.

I am sure I am not the only one that hates trying on clothes in the changing room. I have had a few people tell me they rather try on clothes at home and return them if they don’t fit than use the changing rooms. It is strange that many of us feel that way about the changing room. So what is the deal with the changing rooms?

Why I hate trying on clothes in the changing room

These are the reasons why I rather over trying on clothes in changing rooms –

 

I feel exposed

There is little privacy in changing rooms. I find the curtains don’t do a good job and I feel exposed when trying on clothes. I also have this weird feeling that someone could mistakenly/deliberately open the curtains.

 

They are always too small

As a twin mummy, I am usually out and about with the kids. Trying on clothes in small changing rooms with 2 very active toddlers is not ideal. The rooms are usually even too small for just one person, not to mention going in with kids.

 

Waiting for a free room

I am not the most patient person. My entire patience is used up with the twins so I have little or non left for anything else. Hanging around waiting for a free room to try on clothes feels like a waste of valuable time.

Changing rooms are useful

Despite my reservations, I know how useful changing rooms can be. They are great for when you need to ensure that stunning dress fits great or that new brand has the jeans you have your eye on in your size. But I still avoid them when I can. I rather just try my finds at home and buy from trusted brands I know.

 

What are your thoughts on this? Do you avoid the changing rooms like I do?

How to style your pregnant body in summer

I remember how uncomfortable I felt in most of my pre-pregnancy clothing while pregnant with the twins. I had a huge bump as you can imagine with twins, and I looked the part quite quickly. When it comes to styling your pregnant body, the most important thing to have at the top of your mind is comfort. The last thing a pregnant woman needs is uncomfortable clothing or footwear, so comfort is the key when you need to style your pregnant body, especially in the summer months as it can get very warm.

Here are six styling tips you may find useful  when it comes to styling while pregnant these summer months –

 

Go for layers

Layering is a great way to feel comfortable and look stylish while pregnant. Go for t-shirts or camisoles with chiffon over tops. This will keep you feeling cool and looking effortlessly chic as this look will flatter your bump. Short-sleeved cardigans and cowls are great layers that flatter the bump while keeping you warm on summer evenings.

 

Buy slim legged maternity jeans

Make sure you go for slim legged maternity jeans to create a more streamlined look. Wearing this type of jeans will create a balanced look as your top part would need to be free.

 

Wear flats

Now this is purely common sense, but I find many pregnant women in heels and I find it crazy. The last thing your feet needs is heels while pregnant. Being pregnant is a good excuse to wear your flat everywhere, including the office, so make the most of it. Go for a couple of flats in different fabrics and designs for various occasions.

Go a size up

I never really shopped for maternity clothes while pregnant because I didn’t like most of the pieces I saw. Also, I didn’t want to invest in a maternity wardrobe and not be able to wear the clothing anymore. So instead I went a size up! My pregnancy weight was really only on my tummy so buying a size e up worked great for me.

 

Shop for elasticated trousers/jeans and v-neck tops

Elasticated trousers and jeans leave room to grow and are a lot more comfortable. V-neck tops and scoop-neck tops flatter the cleavage and prevent you from looking too big at the top.

 

Go for a bra fitting

Your boobs would grow at a terrific rate while pregnant so make sure you go for a bra fitting. Most people grow at least a cup size while pregnant so making sure you get the right bra size is very important.
