fall lookbook .. maternity edition
let me know in the comments – which outfit is your favorite???
I was going to separate the fall outfit inspiration lookbook and the maternity outfit inspiration videos but decided to just put them together (because hello?! I’m pregnant either way – so both videos would’ve been of me in ‘maternity’ friendly outfits – haha!)
if you’d like further tips into HOW I picked clothes for being ‘maternity’ friendly just scroll past the outfit details 🙂 I’m sharing my secrets below!
thank you for watching!

so a few things I focus on buying/wearing when I’m pregnant are :
loose fitting tops – (these can be peplum silhouettes too) they hide the awkward ‘is she pregnant?’ phase AND end up fitting a bit more snug later on, they’re also perfect for AFTER pregnancy too, when we’re still soft 😉 and maybe kind of still look a bit pregnant.
stretchy pants – I LIVED in my moto leggings because the waist band was stretchy. another thing I’ve done is wear high waisted leggings but fold the waistband down (they’re also good for after because they suck it all in 😉 I have never bought maternity pants because I just size up in my jeans or do the elastic around the button trick for as long as possible 😉
swing/body con dresses – easy, simple dresses allow you to breathe and still look chic, layer them with a cardigan, or jacket and wear cute shoes and you’ll instantly look dressed up but really you feel like you’re in pjs 😉
1st-2nd trimester dressing – when your bump isn’t totally a ‘bump’ yet and you don’t know how to dress your new body, I always went for looser fitting tops and tighter pants. I tried to make my body look long and lean, so I’d wear shoes / booties with a heel on them too.
2nd-3rd trimester dressing – when your bump is defined and you have that curvy shape, show it off! you don’t need to wear the tightest top in the world, but something that does drape off your curves is really beautiful. I still would wear loose tops (they just don’t look AS loose) and if you can wear tops that are longer – I’ve had MANY shirts come up so that you’re seeing the bottom of my low belly 😉 and that’s just not very flattering lol.

I’m super excited to meet our new babe in a few weeks (maybe sooner?!) and it’s been fun dressing ‘the bump’ 😉 thank you for following along on my journey!
