I know from direct message, comment, and email that there are a lot of expecting mothers reading this blog. I thought I’d share some of my latest maternity finds here, although if you are new in these parts, I will repeat that my absolute favorite maternity finds were these David Lerner leggings (100% worth the investment — far superior to any other pair of maternity leggings on the market; I owned two pairs over the course of my two pregnancies and they still look good as new), Gap’s maternity tees, and Cosabella’s maternity pajamas (<<currently on sale! RUN!). I can’t recommend the pajamas enough. They are so soft and comfortable and I love the way the robe can be cinched above the bump to give you a little shape when you’re feeling like a big ball. They are also dreamy for post-partum and nursing-friendly. I owned several pairs and they were worth every last cent!
At any rate, other finds, and how I would wear them, in part inspired by the ultra chic Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert, who made pregnancy dressing as chic as can be…
AN ABSOLUTE ESSENTIAL — I HAD A BLACK DRESS NEARLY IDENTICAL TO THIS THAT I WORE SO MUCH MY SISTER OFFERED TO BURN IT FOR ME AFTER I DELIVERED HILL…I LIKE TO DRESS IT UP WITH AN HERMES SCARF OR SOME FLASHY MULES
ANOTHER STAPLE — THINKING BACK, I REALIZE I ALMOST ALWAYS GRAVITATED TOWARDS BLACK/WHITE/GRAY AND THEN WOULD DOLL MYSELF UP WITH TRENDY ACCESSORIES…THIS WOULD LOOK ADORABLE WITH JEANS (<<THESE WERE MY FAVORITE) AND LOAFERS (ALSO ALWAYS LOVE TODS AND THESE ARE ON SALE) FOR FALL
THIS SIMPLE LINEN EVERYDAY DRESS — VERY CHARLOTTE YORK IMHO
THESE STRIPED COTTON NIGHTGOWNS GET AMAZING REVIEWS…I WANT ONE AND I’M NOT EVEN EXPECTING
THIS IS A NO BRAINER — LOOKS SO SOFT
POTENTIAL CONTENDER FOR A SHOWER DRESS (EVEN IF VIRTUAL / SOCIALLY-DISTANCED) — LOVE THAT THIS NAILS THE CURRENT TRENDS WITH ITS PUFF SLEEVES AND EYELET
Let me know if you’re looking for anything else in particular! Thinking of all my Magpie Mamas-To-Be today. You got this.
P.P.S. On going from 0-1 vs 1-2 children (comments are a gold mine).
P.P.P.S. Building a layette for a new baby.
