Dressing The Bump

Before I hit the " I hate all my clothes nothing fits might as well just wear a trash bag" phase of pregnancy, I wanted to make sure I got in some bump style posts. Maternity clothes have come a very very long way and for that I am grateful. You no longer have to wear clothing big enough to double as a circus tent. You also no longer have to make your own (but if you do major props) and you don't "have to" pay an arm and a leg for a dress. I mean you still can if you want. I'm just saying that there are lots of ways to get maternity clothes that fit your budget. You can also find clothes that are non maternity and make them work. Things that are high waisted and flowy are perfect maternity pieces. This pregnancy I've really tried to utilize my "regular" clothes for as long as possible. However, I am now to a point where it usually has to be a combination of the two. I anticipate that within the next month I will transition over to about 80% of my maternity clothes. Because you know. Babies grow and stuff.

Right now I am loving the nautical striped shirt w/ solid skirt trend. I would say something about how I'm squeezing in a few more summer outfits before fall hits but that would be a lie. In Arizona you can dress like summer through October, all the while pining away for cooler temps. Example? At the UofA campus you will find a plethora of young ladies in tiny summer dresses (um excuse me, did you buy that at Baby Gap?) and Ugg boots. This is a phenomenon I will never understand. So while I keep my tiny sundresses in my closet (fun fact, I actually don't own any), I wear stuff like this.

I love draping my baby bump in a long maxi skirt. This should pretty much hold true through out my pregnancy, it just depends on the type of maxi.

Comfy v-neck, maxi skirt, red lips and a statement necklace. A pregnancy favorite for sure.
