I’ve made it to 27 weeks! Wow that feels like a long journey but I’m well over the half way mark, so things are officially looking up. I was sick for my first pregnancy, I know I can get through this too. If you follow along on instagram, you know that I’ve struggled with pants! We’ve broken up and I’m going steady with dresses! I might as well take advantage while the weather is still warm. If you have any pant brand suggestions, I’m all ears… fall is coming!
I still can’t believe summer is almost over! Maybe it’s been how sick this pregnancy has made me, or chasing after a toddler but this was the fastest summer of my life! For my maternity looks, transitioning from easy to dress summer, to the cooler temperatures may be a bit of a challenge. Let’s face it, it’s was easier wearing cotton strict maxi dresses everyday. Fall is my favourite season in more ways then one, and undoubtedly my favourite style season. I love outerwear, boots and long sleeve dresses.
Luckily I picked up this summer to fall transition dress from Envie De Fraise. If you haven’t heard of them, Envie de Fraise is a leading European maternity brand founded in 2006 by Anne-Laure Constanza with a vision to create affordable, effortless chic clothing for every body type and style. With comfort in mind they design both trendy and essential pieces for the modern moms-to-be. I mean, if it’s good enough for Anne Hathaway and Gwen Stefani’s pregnancy style it’s good enough for me!
You’ll know from my snapchat and insta stories I’ve been obsessed with the new J.Crew Crossbody Signet bag. It comes in so many colours and is fully customizable. You can add a monogram or hang little extras like this key holder. I added my grandma’s scarf for a very personal touch. I’m still torn, might go back and get a one in the animal print too.
This week my belly is officially the size of a soccer ball, this fact has been extremely evident each day I get dressed. Like my first pregnancy, I am trying my darnedest to only purchase maternity items that are absolutely needed, stick within my current wardrobe and only acquire pieces that I can wear after my pregnancy also. It’s such a short period of time to invest in maternity pieces, I like to get designer pieces that can fit a belly but can also be great for my postpartum body. So far this summer I’ve been living in dresses like this one from Morning Lavender. As long as the length is longer I can get away with non maternity options such as this white stunner.
So pumped to have acquired a few new designer accessories lately. I’ve been sporting this rose gold watch from Porsamo Bleu and my new anniversary present this stunning Chloe Drew in Mushroom grey. Both are so stunning, they elevate even the most casual look. Look for my take on the all white trend with Fashion Magazine’s style panel this week.
