It’s been a while since my last Pantone post.
So much for one every couple of months eh?!
There’s been so much going on recently though, it’s hardly surprising. We’ve barely been at home and the couple of free days that I do have — during the week when the boys are at nursery — seem to be over in a flash.
I certainly don’t seem to be able to fit as much in as I’d like. But hey.
Better than kicking my heels and wishing for something to do. I’d much rather be busy, than not.
The next colour in the palette for this year is Pantone Snorkel Blue.
Personally, I’d probably label this one ‘French Navy’ but I always love Pantone’s names for their colours — and Snorkel Blue is a lot more pictorial — so I’ll let it slide ;)
It’s such a fresh shade — looks gorgeous in an interior setting — and can be paired with so many lovely colours to make it really pop. Clash with fuchsia pink or orange or tone it down and layer with other shades of blue for a really restful feel.
But, all that said, I’m not doing an interior post this time round!
As my little sister is pregnant at the mo, with our families’ exciting new arrival due in the next few weeks, I thought I’d dedicate this post to her and collate some products for all pregnant and new mums everywhere.
I remember at the end of my pregnancy — and also in the first few months after I’d had the twins — stylish is the last thing I felt.
But just trawling through some of the lovely things that are available at the mo, everything from discreet nursing tops — and cardigans to protect your modesty when breastfeeding — to lovely change bags, makes me think that you can still be pretty stylish, if you’ve a mind to be.
Here are my fave picks.
Colour Your World in Pantone Snorkel Blue
1. Bright Blue Faux Fur Pom Beanie — ASOS
2. V-Neck Maternity/Nursing Top — Dorothy Perkins
3. Narcissus Bangle — Black & Sigi
4. Waterfall Cardigan — Marks & Spencer
5. Hastings Navy Stripe — PacaPod

So there we have it. This season’s must-haves in Snorkel Blue.
OK — a lot of these items are not strictly for new mums — I’d certainly be happy to wear ALL of the accessories! Totally loving the gorgeous bangle and shoes — I already have a pair of Seasalt brogues in a different shade — so comfy, I love them.
