So, its transition time in our lives right now and our bodies. How can we keep the same style and more importantly feel like ourselves? Feeling consistency in our personal style can help us stay afloat with all the hormonal, physical and psychological changes …
For me it was interesting to examine my first pregnancy where I was so preoccupied with what didn’t fit, discovering maternity jeans (which I never ever heard of!) and the horror of loosing my shape- compared to this pregnancy where I just rejoiced and adapted to the miracle of my bump and leaned on leggings and cute knits early on!
Although some women have this confidence first-time-round, these key items are what we feel will keep you comfortable mentally and stylistically throughout your whole pregnancy- and during this chilly fall season.
Super saver and very figure forgiving- we start with charcoal leggings from Aussie brand Cotton On $24.95.
With this we suggest a good, durable shoe to dress up any legging- we love a classic reliable ballet flat and can’t go past the timeless Chanel Ballet Flat ($750 Neiman Marcus). Believe it or not- it is the comfiest and well centered flat for our ever growing centre balance.
Pregnancy is a gift but its also a conundrum, because I believe we can have full pick of any of our favorite brands without needing a whole new wardrobe or busting the budget. So, for that reason our number one throw over knit goes to Kate Moss for Equipment “Ryder” sweater. A perfect starry edition to your look for readying the nursery, date night or any evening soiree ($318).
H & M is stepping up its game with this cute nautical maternity AND nursing top! Fits easy over any size bump and will transition with you to the next stage ($24 at H & M).
And lastly our all-out fave pick for maternity essentials this fall is this BCBG Maternity Lace dress for $198 from A Pea in Pod (available in black or creme)- gets you glam for the upcoming festive season while feeling beautiful and sexy!
