Holiday Must Haves

We are going on holidays next week. Sun, sand, relaxing - I can not wait! I hope you have a holiday to look forward to before bub arrives.
My husband and I took a trip away when I was 6 months pregnant. It is a wonderful thing to do before the baby comes along.
So this has got me to thinking - what are my holiday clothing "must haves"? (pregnant or not!)

First of all - a sundress - that is cool, comfortable and can be worn day or night. The Allegra Maternity Dress (pictured right) in 100% cotton is perfect.

Wear it with a hat and sandals for day time chic or dress it up with espradrills and an updo for evening.
The next must have item is a pair of capri pants. I like the Amelia Linen Maternity Pants (pictured left). These pants are cool and comfortable and look fabulous too. Available in classic black or mocha as shown.
These pants will go back with most tops from singlets and camis to more dressy maternity tops.

Another capri pant option is the Ripe Maternity Poplin Capri Pants (available in white, latte and black), or the stretchy and popular Velcro Maternity Capri Pants (available in black, taupe, chocolate and white).

Thirdly, a comfortable, versatile top that can be worn to the beach, shopping, or dressed up for the evening. My favourites include the Kara Maternity Cami (pictured right) in white and the Bamboo Body Soft Maternity Cami in black or cinnamon. Wear casually during the day and dress up with accessories or a sheer silk wrap such as the Silvia Maternity Shirt for evening.

Last, and most importantly, a great swimsuit that will keep you feeling confident when it is time to strip down for a swim.

The Geometric Maternity Tankini has been designed specifically to flatter pregnant bumps. Supportive in all the right places, this tankini has a sweetheart neckline and an eyecatching print to bring the eye upwards away from any problem areas... The Geometric Tankini has adjustable pants to ensure the perfect fit from 0-9 months.
Make sure you remember your hat and sunscreen because your skin can be extra sensitive when pregnant.
