First Trimester Outfit Ideas – How to Hide Your Bump

February 19, 2020

Now that I am officially out of my first trimester, I thought it might be fun to round up some first trimester outfit ideas. To be honest, I find dressing from the start of pregnancy until you actually start looking pregnant the hardest. I have basically feel like it looks like I have eaten too much. It’s complicated by the fact you haven’t shared more broadly, so you can’t explain that food baby yet. 😉 Tips on how to hide…

Let me know if you have anything specific you’d like to know about maternity dressing or anything I can help with. One of the first things not to fit me while pregnant was my jeans. The options: try a belly band, use the rubber band trick, and/or…

November 18, 2016

Pregnancy has made me a tunic lover. This bohemian tunic top is perfect now (it’s non-maternity) and will be great after baby too. Paired with jeans and OTK boots, it’s an easy fall outfit combination. I love the bell sleeves and actually have the same top in one other color too. It is currently on sale! Hey, when it works, it works. I wore this look to grab dinner with Russ one weekend. I’ve also styled the tunic a couple…

I got it and immediately knew I wanted to pair it with my black jeans (exact non-maternity) and faux leather moto jacket. It just felt cool!…

Striped Blazer

November 11, 2016

I was pretty excited when I saw this striped blazer on SheIn’s site (only $30!). I’m all about fun layers at any time, but especially during pregnancy. I loved that this particular piece had vertical stripes with my favorite fall color, burgundy, and was more of a longline style. This is the first week it has really cooled off much in Oklahoma, so I was able to wear my favorite non-maternity ruched dress with bare legs last week under the…
