Hi ladies, I've been having so much fun shopping for my bump lately and got inspired to share not just this dainty floral look but also some tips on how to shop during pregnancy so those investments can be used again in the long run.
I've heard many people say that they didn't feel cute during pregnancy and it was probably attributed to their wardrobe. Yes the naseua, weight gain, and shifting hormones don't help to you feel any better but trust me when I say a little floral top and some cute comfy shoes go a long way!
I wore this look out to dinner with some girl friends and I love how airy this sheer blouse is. It's perfect for the hot weather but to sheer to show everything. I pair my sheer tops with matching tanks so you don't notice the difference in color. I used a little brooch I had lying around the house to add a cute accent to the neckline and the rest is history. Easy pencil skirt and my favorite heels this season. I always feel matching your blouse to your top makes for a good outfit pairing.
So now for my tips on baby bump shopping.
Here we go!
First the look above I just shared, the same blouse that accommodates my bump can look super cute tucked into a both the same pencil skirt or a circle skirt. Here's an example of how it can be styled with a circle skirt.
Next is a trusted peplum blouse with butterfly bell sleeves.
These blouses are super in trend right now and flatter both mommies to be and non mommies all the same! If your looking to invest in faithful blouses it's definitely these!
T-Shirt dresses! They are a modernists dream go to piece. It always looks chic, clean and effortless (because it is!) This dress works so well you can barely even tell I'm pregnant in the photo and the breathable fabric of t-shirt dresses make way for a comfortable happy gal whatever her circumstances.
Now let's talk about circle dresses. Both in high- low or not, these dresses are a mommy to be fave. They fit great during most of the pregnancy and are always comfortable. Once the bump is gone they still look good and you can add a belt to accent your waist. I'd like to add that empire waist dresses are also a happy plus and will always look good. Note that on empire waist dresses your bump will be more prominent so if that's what your comfortable with empire away!
I also have one last look I want to share however it isn't so easy to come by as the skirt has to be appropriate and comfortable for your growing needs. This maxi skirt in particular is pleated, super stretchy and has a nice shape at the waist that accents a growing bump. Circle skirts over my bump and any type of a-line have not proven to be flattering in the latter months and so I would not suggest it but a skirt like this one below can be modified to suit your needs before and after mommy hood.
Finally I'll end with this.
On more fitted looks I like to add layers to not make my belly look so huge and just let it pop out a bit. Of course that is my personal preference and while I would never judge a mommy to be for wearing whatever she could get herself to fit into, I do believe that spending time on building up a wardrobe thats functional before and after the bump is a great way to have fun shopping and reinventing your already styled products with you post baby body. Many of you might not be on the baby band wagon just yet but keep these little tips with you. I promise they will pay off in the long run 😉.
