Dressing the Bump

Top:  Old Navy ~ the best pregnancy tanks, Skirt:  Jen's Pirate Booty ~ on sale!, Shoes:  J.Crew (also here ~ on sale!), Bag:  Mar Y Sol (also here, here,) Bracelets:  Tory Burch (old, similar here) and c/o Gold & Gray, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

Sharing what could possibly be my last maternity look today as I am a mere NINE DAYS from my due date and our baby girl could make her appearance any time now.

As much as I will miss being pregnant, dressing for pregnancy is definitely not as easy as it may appear. With my body changing shape on what seemed to be a weekly basis, coming up with outfits to wear to the office each and every day definitely presented a challenge for me.

As I mentioned a few months ago, I entered into this with the attitude that 'I'll never wear maternity clothes'. That thought quickly disappeared as I realized that many of my regular clothes no longer fit ~ not like slightly too tight, more like not a prayer of pulling them off with my growing belly.

Once I realized that investing in some maternity-wear was absolutely necessary, I knew that I wanted to make my pregnancy pieces go a long way. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on clothes that I would only need once {maybe twice ~ wink} again in my life.

I decided maternity basics were the way to go, and rather than shopping at your typical maternity stores {which in my opinion are a bit pricy}, I shopped mainly at H&M and Old Navy.

On top of that, I purchased some non-maternity pieces that I could wear during pregnancy and afterward, such as this dress, and this one.

Once it started to get warm I was able to don my non-maternity maxi dresses ~ by far my favorite thing to wear during my third trimester.

Hope this post is helpful to all mommies-to-be out there ~ wishing everyone a wonderful week!
