{35 Weeks} AND PREGNANCY FASHION


IPhone {VSCO Camera} pictures from the past month
35 weeks and what I’ve learned about pregnancy fashion 

1.      Don’t expect to feel amazing, BUT don’t give up on trying!
2.     Comfortable, slip on shoes are a MUST – I found mine here.
3.     Motherhood Maternity isn’t all that bad – at least for bottoms. I’m now the proud owner of a pair of skinny jeans, stretchy pants and a pair of shorts, all from Motherhood.
4.     Dresses and Maxi skirts are still one of your best friends. It’s worth purchasing a few of these during your second trimester because they will grow along with the rest of your body. Yes…as your stomach gets bigger so does the rest of you…sad, I know.
5.     Let’s talk about makeup – getting a mac makeover and switching to their products has tremendously helped me feel better about my fuller face. Don’t skimp on good make up. Like my sister used to say, you only get one face, so treat it well. Look out for a product review in the near future.
6.     Do your hair! The days I look in the mirror and cry about the way I look are the days I did nothing to my hair…It’s as simple as that.
7.      Basic tank tops – Target has a tank called “long and lean.” These are my new favorite. The straps are a bit thicker and they are fitted and long.
8.     Purchase undergarments that fit you well. Your bra and panties have a lot to do with how smooth things look.
9.     Accessorize. There are many days when the only thing I feel good in is my skinny jeans and a black tank top. BUT with a real cute necklace, rings, earrings and maybe even a headband I still can feel like I’m styled. And don’t forget about having a cute bag!

All that to say, being styled in your third trimester is going to take some effort, but it is totally possible. And it’s okay if you wear the same thing multiple times a week – no one who has ever been pregnant will judge you.

Can you tell I needed a pep talk? I mean, who doesn’t when you are 35 weeks along?

  1. I love that maxi skirt! Where I'd you get it? Is it non- maternity? Love your post...too true all the way around. Glad to know you got your skinny jeans from motherhood mat. I'll keep that in mind for the future when I am pregnant again.

    1. Thanks, Anna! The skirt is from billabong.com - and it is not maternity. :)

  2. Your outfits are too cute? Do you wear non-maternity clothing? I can only find plain, solid-colored maternity tops. Just wondering about where u buy your clothing..?

    1. Hi! I actually haven't purchased any maternity tops besides basic tanks. My shirts are just really long ones that I've found or dresses that when pregnant look like shirts. Places I frequent most for clothes are Target, Marshalls, Nordstrom, Swell, Gap and VonMaur and Forever21.. It is NOT easy to find clothes that fit, but with some patience and searching you will find a few gems that work.

      Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have some success!

  3. I never did buy maternity clothes, except the bras. Your maternity style tips & tricks are great. I'm not preggers, but I saw your comment from Bubby and Bean and thought I'd swing by and take a peek. =0)
