I was recently sent this gorgeous outfit from Next and I have to say, I'm totally in love with it. I have worn it so much since it arrived and have had a lot of compliments on it. As I said in my first maternity style post, I didn't bother buying any outfits when I was pregnant with Ava but I'm so happy that I'm making an effort this time around and I feel that this outfit very much reflects my personal style.
I love the pattern on this top, I thought it was a simple cotton t-shirt at first but the sleeves and back are made from a lovely sheer material, giving it a much dressier feel. The fabric on the front is partly velvet, which I often find myself absent-mindedly stroking like a loon!
Now the pants, as you can tell, are faux leather, and I am utterly obsessed with them. They are unbelievably comfortable. The over-the-bump band doesn't dig in to your stomach and is made of wonderfully, soft cotton. Something that I find hugely important being that I still feel sick on occasion. There's nothing worse than an over-the-bump band that digs in,trust me! They are so versatile too. I've worn this outfit with flats, heels & even with metallic, rose gold pumps!
Both products are of fantastic quality and these definitely won't be the last pieces from Next Maternity that I add to my wardrobe. If you're pregnant you definitely need to check out the Next Maternity section, you won't be disappointed!
*I was gifted the top & trousers in exchange for an honest review.
