Pregnancy - A Time To Go Shoe Shopping!

Never underestimate the power of flat shoes!

I'm all for suffering for vanity and wearing high heels on special occasions but flats will become your best friend when you're carrying a stone and a half (er.... or twice that, if you're me) on your front!

Your feet swell during pregnancy - there's no getting round that - and you might even find that you need shoes half a size bigger than normal. This is due to water retention and also down to the simple fact that your increased weight puts added pressure on them and makes them flatter and wider!

So what are your options? There are heaps of gorgeous shoes out there at the moment.

Your absolute essential is a pair of flip flops. Perfect for the summer, and easy to slip your feet in and out of! You can go for a simple, sporty pair like these Havaianas (slim elegance in black, £35, from the Havaianas website)

or a dressy pair like these Khloe flip flops from Kurt Geiger (£29 in the sale!)

Gladiator sandals are for sale everywhere again this year and add a stylish twist to a casual outfit. I adore these ones from ASOS (£30)

(NB these are only really for the early months of pregnancy, as once your bump gets to a certain size you will need your other half to do up the buckles for you!)

Ballet pumps are my current fave style. I have a gorgeous multicoloured pair of peep toes from Topshop (bought last Summer) but have a wish list as long as my arm of potential upcoming purchases. How about these beauties, also from Topshop (Honolulu cutout peep toes, £32)

or these Poppy Shoes from LK Bennett (£50 - sale - and available in heaps of colours)

When Summer turns to Autumn a pair of boots are essential and I have my eye on these bad boys! (suede panel boots, £179, Boden

Uggs are also a great choice - they are super comfy and casual and go with anything!

Just remember - shoes and boots that slip on easily are the way forward! Ones with fiddly zips, laces and buckles in awkward places will be a pain in the bum once your bump is huuuuuge and in the way! 

A good excuse to go shopping, methinks xoxox
