Sage

This sage green top from James Perse has been a closet favorite of mine for years (previously worn here). It is just that item of clothing I turn to in the fall and winter when I want a basic look that I know will be flattering. Imagine my joy this last weekend when I went to put it on and it still fit! Yipee! This time I paired it with some skinny jeans (worn with a belly band) and Ralph Lauren booties. I love the mix of soft neutrals like this sage green paired with black for fall and this look really hits the bill.

Snake Print Pants

November 3rd, 2014

One thing I have managed to do throughout this pregnancy is control the urge to splurge on tons of maternity clothing. It took me several months to grow out of most of my fitted regular clothing, and other (more forgiving) pieces are still working for me. These snake print pants were one of the items I had to splurge on. I paired them with an American Apparel tee that is still managing to fit around my belly. I have found that as my belly gets bigger, I feel more feminine and beautiful in tighter clothing to showcase the bump. Whereas in the beginning when I felt it wasn’t totally obvious that I was pregnant, I was still doing more of the baggy look. It has been a fun journey fashionwise so far and I can’t wait to see it grow more and attempt to dress it along the way.

Floral Tulip Shorts

September 29th, 2014

I am happy the heat is sticking around a bit because that means I can get more use out of some of my summer clothes like these floral tulip shorts. The print is so girly, which makes them really fun to wear! This last weekend to run some errands (like going to look at strollers – ahhhh!) I paired them here with a basic black ruched maternity top from Target. This top is my new fave tee at the moment because of its simplicity and flattering shape. I bought it in a few different colors as well, so I am sure they will be making an appearance on the blog sooner or later.

Peachy

These peachy shorts have been in my rotation all summer (ever since I grew out of my regular denim shorts). I am surprised at how many tops the peachy color goes with. It almost acts as a neutral. Of course here I am wearing with a white blouse, but it really goes with a plethora of options in my closet. I am getting sad that fall will steal these shorts away from me with the colder weather! The top I have on is from Urban Outfitters and I just love the flowy bohemian feel and the shoulder detail – it is really fun to wear! This is a piece that I will be able to transition into fall with some skinny jeans or even some flowy pants.

Bumpin’ in Black

September 11th, 2014

I have just recently started to feel like I can sport tighter fitting clothes and actually look pregnant instead of questionably bloated. The other weekend, I took the opportunity to wear one of my favorite James Perse dresses that I knew would work during pregnancy as well. The ruching on the sides makes it a perfect staple to transition from pre-pregnancy clothing to maternity wear. The basic dress needed some spicing up, so I paired it with bright orange flats I got custom made in St. Tropez a few years ago and some layered jewelry.

I actually caved in and bought some maternity pants and a belly band the other day. I am definitely trying to make my normal clothing work for as long as possible! Stay tuned…
