I rarely post about fashion on the blog- I don’t pretend to be an expert – but some of you have inquired about my maternity favorites, and it’s worth sharing some things I have found that really work well because I know it’s not always easy to figure this out, especially the first time around. Above are some of the basics that make my maternity wardrobe work. Keep in mind I live in Georgia, so fall/winter is quite mild and I don’t need heavy outerwear, etc. and I also stay home with Vivi, so mostly I need function and comfort that also makes me feel cute and pulled together. I have a down vest that I love for extra warmth (no, not the gorgeous $500 plus version above, but I love it) and the Michael Stars tops are my favorites – specifically the shine tanks (that don’t seem to be available anywhere right now) and the henleys. Truly, the pants above are great. I love the low, but not too low, panel, and they are ankle length on me, so they also look great dressed up with heels. I really, really don’t like maternity pants (I have tried the belly bands that others rave about, but they just don’t work for my pear-shaped self) and the full panel, while comfortable, makes me feel a bit like a stuffed sausage or something. The designer jean options are pretty great, but I’m not willing to spend that much for such a short period of time. I’m 33 weeks now, and these cords are still serving me well. I also go to Old Navy now and then (rarely to never went before toddler world) to get items for Vivi, and I have discovered their bright and happy sweater collection to make great additions to my maternity wardrobe. They are usually on sale, and I get a larger size – try it! And, seriously – those undies – they are great. I’m very picky about that kind of thing . . . and I won’t go into all the details, but read about what makes them extra great here. Hope this is helpful to some of you!!
