So, of all the different things I could be worrying about, researching, or laying awake at night thinking about, I seem to spend a lot of time these days thinking about clothes. I mean, I like clothes, I enjoy the process of shopping, so how is that any different, right? Wrong. All of the sudden I have literally no idea what to look for when it comes to clothing and any trips to the mall so far have just been full of confusion so far. To help rectify that frustration I’ve been doing a lot of online browsing lately to try and find maternity looks that feel like they fit my usual personality and style. I mean, even if I’m pregnant, which is totally weird to me in so many ways, I’m still me and clothing is a big way of helping me feel comfortable in my own skin (or second skin if you will). Here are a few looks that are on my preggo wishlist (and Christmas list for that matter!) so if you are in a similar spot these days I hope you find some cute things that catch your eye too!
I’m watching an old season of Project Runway and your baby bump style is v similar pregnant Heidi Klum’s! Looooove it!
You know what I like to hear…
Cute looks! It may be completely dependent on the weather where you live but I found the best maternity pants to be yoga leggings with the high or rolling waistband. Maternity jeans were okay for awhile but the pregnancy hot flashes at the start of California summertime were not so great for wearing the cute stuff. I bought a couple of cute dresses and pants but I barely wore them. So while not exactly maternity wear, I spent the majority of my preggo clothing budget at Lululemon. I wore their racerback tanks under all my tops for nursing too. I can totally see you in a pair of black leggings and an off the shoulder top. Whatever you end up finding I’m sure it will look great.
Yay, thanks for the tip! Since I’ll be a winter preggo (and being pregnant hasn’t made me any warmer yet!) I’ll still probably be cold all the time, but we’ll see!
I only bought two pairs of black materninity jeggings and one pair of jeans and kept wearing my own clothes until the end, for me it was the best choice cause it made me still feel like myself 🙂 Also about the cats, I was really scared before my son was born of how that interaction would be, but things have been great, I mean my baby is totally crazy in love for the cat and the cat mostly “patiently accepts” this new addition to the family 😉 but things are fine, never had any problem, my son never got sick, not even a cold…never had any allergies or anything.
Aw, so glad to hear they get along! Yeah, I think expecting the cats to love the baby is one thing but I can at least hope for not hating each other! 🙂
I just had my first baby a few weeks ago, so this is all fresh in my mind :). I loved bodycon dresses. I loved my bump so much and wanted to show it off, and they were just so comfortable. Good luck shopping!
Yes!! I’m totally feeling the bodycon route so far!
Not sure how you feel about velvet, but this maternity dress is super cute for the holidays!
So cute! I actually AM looking for a velvet holiday dress, but my dream one has bell sleeves on it…this is a good one to keep in mind though, thanks!
