Britain In Bloom

It’s seems whenever you pick up a tabloid paper these days, there is a story about a celebrity pregnancy. In one tabloid newspaper today alone, we counted seven stories about a pregnant or post-pregnant celeb, whether it’s how she shed her baby weight, why she shouldn’t shed her baby weight too quickly, how thrilled she is to be pregnant after years of trying, or just her pregnancy style. We are a nation obsessed with pregnancy!

Later this month you can even watch a film about being pregnant: ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’ starring Cameron Diaz charts five inter-connected couples all experiencing the familiar highs and lows of pregnancy. Pregnancy can be like that, for every up there is a down. If you know someone who is expecting at the moment, they may not feel that they are emanating radiance from every pore, or feel positively blooming. They may feel tired, emotional, sick and scared and hundred more weird and wonderful symptoms. If you know someone who’s in their first, second or third trimester, give them a hug this week, or if you happen to pass a pregnant stranger on the street, a smile would probably be greatly appreciated.

Twist Front Dress

Twist Front Dress

Now to the matter of pregnancy fashion, it’s just as important when you are pregnant as when you are not, to look the best you can, and as this has a positive effect on how you feel. So we have been inspired by a wall post on our Pepperberry Facebook page. One customer pointed out that the Twist Front Dress by Pepperberry in navy has been a perfect choice for her first & second trimesters. So if you are expecting or know somebody that is, you may want to look at these fabulous easy to wear options that could work in a pre and post baby wardrobe.

Pregnant and thinking of what you could wear to a Jubilee Party? Look no further than the Frill Front Dress by Pepperberry in green. It is a really pretty dress which is cut under the bust with a waist tie; it flares out, providing enough room for a growing bump. It is made from a silk cotton blend fabric and has sweet puff sleeves and ruffle detailing down the front.

If you’re happy showing off your bump, the Drape Capped Sleeve Dress from Pepperberry will fit the bill. The crossover front, gives plenty of room for pregnancy boob growth and the waterfall drape front will cover your bump beautifully. This dress comes in steel or multi and will hug your curves throughout your pregnancy.

The Woven Floral Gypsy Top by Pepperberry available in red flower is a very easy to wear and totally on trend in this lovely ditsy floral. The woven fabric is really comfortable to wear during or after your pregnancy, and team it with maternity jeans and pumps for a comfy but stylish look.

The Stripe Sun Top

The Stripe Sun Top

If you love this top, you will probably love the Jersey Floral Tea Dress in red. It is cut under the bust, with that flattering crossover at the bust. It has draping over the tummy area to flatter that bump, and because it’s made from jersey, it will be super comfortable to wear too; this would be a perfect buy for early to mid-pregnancy.

If you are after a perfect summer top, the Stripe Sun Top is the one that you want. It is inspired by Morocco and reminds us of a sunset with the gorgeous orange stripe colouring, and the sequins around the neckline. It is fully lined and has wide straps to hide bra straps. This is a gorgeous bohemian style top that would work really well during and after your pregnancy and would be a great summer staple.

Remember all these items are not maternity, but can work just as well and will ensure you look stylish and feel comfortable though the whole nine months.


Oh how we love the weekend, two full days away from work (apologies, if you are one of the many that have to work this weekend, but this is relevant to you too, so keep reading). If you are planning a shopping trip, you may come home a bit disappointed, with cries of “It’s just so summery, I couldn’t find anything…”

It’s not just you so don’t worry. It’s that tricky time of the year between winter and spring. Americans call it ‘Transition’, we just call it ‘Difficult’. We never know quite what to pick from our wardrobes or buy from the shops. Even though the crocuses are popping up and we may have seen the last of the arctic weather, there is still a nip in the air and we need to dress accordingly.

Pepperberry, our clothing brand, are on hand to bring you our essential guide to dressing for ‘right now’. We have selected some of the best pieces from our current collection that will look great whether you are working all weekend or whether you are out and about.

Leather Jacket

Leather Jacket

Biker Jackets are a classic, a great investment and will never date. Pepperberry’s Leather Jacket is a jacket that you will never want to part with and it is also perfect for this time of year. This one has ribbed panels at the sides, so it will stretch and fit perfectly over your boobs. The two rows of statement buttons give it a military feel. This jacket will look great with skinny jeans, a bodycon dress, or pencil skirt.

The Printed Cardigan is the perfect spring buy, available in a floral print, it has an extra wide ribbing which will create a lovely nipped in waist. The Printed Cardigan looks great buttoned up with indigo bootcut jeans or with skinny jeans. Try it with our Coloured Skinny Jeans in camel or navy or with the Drape Capped Sleeve Dress, as shown.

The Blue Stripe Shirt is a classic tailored shirt, with a pin tuck detail running down the front. Pastels are big news this spring and the pale blue pinstripe follows this trend. This shirt looks great with skinny jeans and knee high boots, add a blazer and a scarf and you have a great spring look.

Big Button Coatigan

Big Button Coatigan

The Big Button Coatigan is a great buy at this time of year, the current weather is not cold enough for a big thick coat, so the Coatigan is a perfect solution. It is available in navy, it has super flattering ribbed detailing down the sides and around the waist, ceramic buttons and it is fully lined in a contrast colour. A great cover up for spring.
