I have to tell you my secret to dressing while expecting. I haven’t purchased too many maternity clothes. I own a few maternity jeans and dresses and layering tops that are long enough to cover this growing belly but for the most part I have continued to buy regular clothes that I can wear now and later, just being cautious of the fit. What is my secret? Jackets, blazers, bombers and vests!
It’s the easiest way to stay on trend and relevant. Buy the basics that will help you get through your pregnancy but finding the right layering pieces will make your look feel more elevated and put together. Plus, it helps hide any unwanted back areas that can be tended to after baby 😜
My go to outfits are a comfortable pair of maternity jeans, long tank and blazer or a stretchy fitted dress complete with a bomber or leather on or over the shoulders. I just switch up the jackets and underneath pieces to create more looks than you can imagine. Or at least enough to get me through these past months! And the best part of it all, I don’t have to give or store away (incase we try for a second!) most of my clothes!
For this look, I found the jacket of my dreams over at South Moon Under and wore it over this Blesse’d Are The Meek dress. This dress worked perfectly because of the high empire waist, full skirt and the key to shopping non maternity clothes … no lining! I’ve made the mistake of shopping online for flowy, full body skirts but the lining underneath will ruin the whole concept. So be sure to check for that while surfing the web.
