Award-winning blogger, Mum to two little ones and working some serious style… With the launch of Heavenly Bump Maternity wear at M&Co, we just had to catch up with the lovely Natalie from Style Me Sunday.
Introduce us to your blog: My blog is Style Me Sunday it’s an award-winning blog and it’s for mum interested in all things stylish.
What made you decide to start blogging? I started blogging whilst I was on Maternity leave with my 2nd baby, I really didn’t want to go back to work but I did want something to exercise my mind that I would enjoy interspersed the nappies and baby talk.
Tell us about your style… My style is mostly quite feminine I like a good silhouette that compliment my curves. I think vintage styles like 50’s/60’s/70’s suit me best.
Where do you get your wardrobe inspiration? Mainly from magazine and browsing the internet. I also love a bit of street style and charity shop browsing.
Is blogging your day job or do you have another occupation? Blogging has now turned into a full time job, along side motherhood of course.
Your blog revolves around your children and fashion lifestyle but how do you juggle blogging with being a mum? That’s the beauty of my work, I do little bits when I can, like at nap time, early mornings and late at night. Also my eldest goes to school and my youngest goes to nursery a couple of days a week. I really need to up her days at nursery but I can’t bear too, this time is too precious and I want to enjoy it as much as possible.
If you could meet any top blogger, who would it be and why? Actually I’ve probably met all the bloggers I adore, Like Erica Davies from The Edited and Julia from Stylonylon. But if I’m pushed to find one maybe Mademoiseller Robot.
What style are you currently obsessed with? 70’s denim.
What’s the one beauty product you couldn’t live without and why? YSL touche eclat
Who’s your celebrity style crush? Solange Knowles and Olivia Palermo
As we have just launched Heavenly Bump maternity wear, we would love to know who your celebrity style crush was when you were pregnant? Did it differ? Well I can’t remember who was actually pregnant at the time I was, but I loved Fearne Cottons pregnancy style, Sienna Miller’s and Gwen Stefani always rocked it well.
What’s your favourite piece from our new maternity range and why would it be perfect for a maternity wardrobe? The grey polka dot top looks comfy and super stylish the key elements I look for in any maternity wear.
Do you prefer to shop online or in-store? Definitely online, my kids always want to play hide and seek in clothes shops under the clothes rails, and I end up having about a thousand heart attacks.
If you had to share one piece of fashion advice what would it be? Explore what styles suits your shape.
Finally, any essential advice for mums-to-be? Don’t buy every baby gadget out there, small baby’s need relatively little. Go with your instincts, relax and enjoy the ride!
