Are you newly pregnant and unsure where to start when it comes to developing a maternity wardrobe? Make sure you start with Building a Maternity Wardrobe Part 1, where you’ll asses your current lifestyle and personal style.
Now that you know your day-to-day lifestyle (business-oriented or more casual?), personal style preferences (skinny pant or dress devotee?), and have identified pieces in your closet that will make it for the long haul (blazers, jackets, empire waist dresses, etc.!), you’re ready to identify the holes in your wardrobe. What items are you missing? (more…)
Pregnancy is certainly an exciting time, but it can also come with its own set of frustrations – like how the heck do I dress this new body of mine?! To help give you a little style inspiration, I’ve teamed up with some beautiful ladies to share how we’re dressing in our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th (post-baby!) trimesters!
This outfit, similar to what I mentioned yesterday, was born from digging deep within my closet to find little-worn pieces. It’d been a while since I layered an open chambray shirt, but it worked perfectly with my tshirt dress for a casual weekend look. But I think what really made this look a stand-out for me was my accessories (in particular this Stella & Dot Aria necklace - I’m in love!).
It’s been a few weeks since I broke out my cargo vest, and I’m really not sure why. I think I kind of fell into a dressing rut where I only wanted to wear maxi dresses all day, everyday. Okay, that still might be the case a little, but wearing the same couple of outfits is getting old. And since shopping is pretty much out of the question at this point in my pregnancy, I’ve started digging back through the closet for sadly neglected pieces. (more…)
Days when packages show up are the best aren’t they? And when it’s surprise packages, it’s even better. I ordered these bow flats from J.Crew Factory months ago on super-sale, but they were backordered. So when they showed up at my door it, it was a complete surprise. I had completely forgotten I’d even ordered them! It’s the little things…
Dress: Liz Lange for Target, Shoes: J.Crew Factory, Blazer: c/o Sheinside (similar), Sunglasses: Ralph Ralph Lauren (similar), Necklace: Stella & Dot Monogram, Earrings: Stella & Dot Nancy Studs, Bracelets: Stella & Dot Eden, Chevron Cuff
This teal dress has become a favorite of mine. I’ve worn it with a kimono and also a striped blazer previously.
Now I’d love to see how you’re remixing your wardrobe! (more…)
