It wasn’t long after I found out I was expecting that I started googling “stylish maternity outfits”. My budget certainly didn’t have room for a whole new wardrobe, so I needed to incorporate as many of my current pieces as possible. And while Pinterest provided some good ideas I still
struggled struggle to find an outfit that both (a) looks somewhat attractive and (b) somewhat fits haha. I don’t claim to have this figured out by any means, but I thought I would share with you what I wore this week in hopes it might inspire you to create a new outfit of your own!
Maternity Tip #1: Identify non-maternity pieces already in your closet that you can continue to wear with maternity items. For me this week that was a maxi skirt, non-maternity dresses with an empire waist, and a favorite kimono.
Monday: Non-maternity skirt with waistband folded down, non-maternity stretch rib-knit tank in a size larger.
Tuesday: Non-maternity dress with an empire waist, cardigan.
Wednesday: Non-maternity dress with an empire waist, cardigan, belt above baby bump to add a little more shape.
Thursday: Black maternity pants, stretch tank, regular kimono.
Friday: Regular jeans with Belly Button band (best thing ever, by the way! more on that to come soon!), maternity top by H&M (borrowed), fun accessories to dress up the look.
Have any good tips or tricks to dress this bump and still feel like yourself? I’m all ears!
