SOON MUMS TO FOLLOW!
There is such a wonderful community of mothers on Instagram sharing their style tips and motherhood stories. We are constantly inspired by these strong, passionate and fashionable women! We have been lucky enough to be able to work with some of these Soon Mums, both in Australia and internationally, over the past two years as a part of our Style File features and have decided to compile our favourite collaborations to date. It has been an absolute pleasure working with these women and we cant wait to continue following their motherhood journey.

Jess Dempsey is the founder of Australian fashion blog, What Would Karl Do? She has worked as a celebrity stylist and visual merchandiser so it is no wonder she is one of the most fashionable expectant mothers in Australia at the moment! Her style is always imaculate and often features designer accessories but she also know how to merge this with affordable basics and make one key piece work with many different outfits.
"If you are a rock chick and you love an edgier look, don’t change, if you are a girly girl, don’t change, if you always wear the same jeans each day, don’t change. My example is, I would always wear black, skinny, ripped jeans with a t-shirt and jacket from day to day before pregnancy. I knew that I simply had to keep wearing this type of outfit but I just had to accommodate for the bump, simply by finding maternity jeans that reflected the pre-baby ones I owned, go-up a size in my t-shirts and jacket."

Sydney based blogger, Renee Harpley, has 15 years experience as a model and now works as a stylist so it comes as no surprise that her Instagram is full of stunning photos and immaculately curated outfits. Not only does Renee inspire us with her chic and elegant maternity style, she also had a chat to us about motherhood for her upcoming Style File. When asked for words of advice Renee has this to say;
"Go with your gut motherly instincts and enjoy the journey. Go with the flow and don't worry yourself too much if you can't feel them kicking or moving, sometimes you don't feel them for days. Also enjoy the peace and quiet before you have any babies and go on one last holiday before they arrive, relax and enjoy the sun, peace and just being the two of you because when bubs arrive it will all change."
