A Hen Do – how to dress a bump for a night out

isabella oliver
Last weekend I had one of my best friends’s hen do and expecting a night on the tiles I was having more than a few wardrobe issues with how best to dress a 5 month bump.  Help was at hand via Isabella Oliver’s fab new Spring/Summer collection.  I bought this dress to see me through a few occasions leading up to the big day and not only is it a pretty print but it is super comfy too.  Rather hoping it might last post pregnancy too.

I teamed the Vivien Print Maternity T Shirt Dress (above) with an old faithful Zara black blazer, Isabella Oliver maternity tights and these Narelle black boots from Jones the Bootmaker.

For the hen itself we spent a blissfully nostalgic nineties night out watching Bodyguard the Musical on the Friday.  Party pants knicker making class during Saturday afternoon, before a private room dinner at Kensington Place and then onto kitsch club Bodo’s Schloss for some retro Alpine induced merriment.

For dress down Sunday I slobbed around in these amazing jogging bottoms and cardi also by Isabella Oliver, see below.

For those not preggo then don’t forget to check out her non-maternity, chic womenswear line Baukjen.
