Loving Lately: Maternity Style

Next week marks halfway through this pregnancy and while I have barely talked about it here or even photographed it (so unlike my first pregnancy with P!) there have been some things this go around that I have loved that I didn't necessarily have three years ago. Very luckily, pregnancy for the most part is very kind to me.. While this one at first seemed a little rougher in the beginning I think that was just due to having a three year old who hates sleep to manage as well.

I've been feeling great and I am so excited for the big 20 week ultrasound next week because we haven't seen or heard the baby in so long. I'm still anxiously awaiting those big swift kicks - hopefully any day now! As you may recall we are not finding out the gender and it's actually a lot of fun! Let's just hope the tech doesn't let it slip next week!

1. Designer Maternity Jeans
I am the first to admit that when it comes to denim I want the pricey pairs. That's because I am a jeans wearing girl about 99% of the time, you will hardly ever find me in leggings/athletic wear. I feel most comfortable in frayed denim and the same goes for when I am rocking a bump. This time around I invested in a couple pairs of nice denim and I can't even tell you what a difference it makes. I'm seriously already sad to have to let these go when my pregnancy is over. Two of my favorites are here and here. I've found Paige with side paneling to be my hands down favorite and have been able to purchase them 40% off with coupons or promos from Destination Maternity.

2. Oversized Sweatshirts
Because it's my first time being pregnant in the fall/winter. I am embracing everything that goes along with it. Give me all the chunky/cozy/oversized everything!

GAP Lace-up Tunnel Neck (not maternity but works either way so cozy and I sized down to a M)
Kimmie & Kai French Hoodie

Ingrid & Isabel Cowl Neck Sweatshirt

3. Tanks - I wore tank tops all the time the first go around but back then it was Liz Lange for Target (and yes I still have them) but the new maternity line at Target, Ingrid & Isabel is so good and their tanks are no exception! Since I ride public transportation to work I am often wearing a tank and cardigan combo. That's mostly because it's the only way I currently look noticeably pregnant - give up your seats people!! This hunter green one is my current fav.

And while I did totally declare I am not a leggings girl, that doesn't mean I don't ever wear them. I just ordered the very raved about BLANQI maternity leggings (they also make a postpartum version) during their 50% off sale. I haven't received them yet but hoping they will live up to the hype! After all I am going to need some good pie pants come Thanksgiving!


  1. I have the postpartum Blanqi leggings and I STILL wear them!

  2. Still have my Liz Lange maternity tank tops too! I bought a few with each pregnancy and I wear them to bed now. Target has some cute maternity stuff right now!

  3. You have been looking so fab mama! But I need more bump shots in my life! Also, I promise you need a Dwell + Slumber dress for now and for postpartum. They restock on Thursday at 6pm your time I believe. Get one and thank me later!
