You know those ideas that seem like really great ideas until you are in the middle of them, and then you think, “Why the heck am I doing this again?” This is one of those ideas. I thought it would be so fun to show you some fall maternity fashion ideas using some of my favorite, go to pieces. The problem came when I was taking the pictures at 9 months pregnant. HA! Trust me when I say if I can wear these outfits while I am this pregnant, anyone can! Also, if you make it to the end of this post, you could win some Agnes and Dora goodness for yourself!
When I am pregnant, I want an outfit that makes me feel like I look a million bucks without that price tag, and without being a “fussy” outfit. I don’t want to have to constantly be adjusting or making sure my belly isn’t showing on the underside (classic sign of a woman in her final weeks of pregnancy.) I put together 3 outfits to give you some ideas that you can use whenever you find yourself needing them.
One thing that I love is wearing clothing that will work for me while pregnant, and then postpartum while I am trying to lose that baby weight. This is where Agnes & Dora come into the mix. Have you guys ever tried their leggings? What about their skirts? They are thick, creamy, soft, and just what my pregnant body loves. This first outfit, I am wearing an Agnes & Dora maxi skirt. There is nothing, I repeat, NOTHING better than wearing a maxi skirt while pregnant. It is soft and comfortable and you can snuggle up while wearing it. As a serious bonus, you don’t have to worry about keeping your legs together while sitting down. (It’s a real problem) I love that you can dress it up or down. The shirt came from Pink Blush Maternity. They have so many CUTE maternity items that you will love.
This second outfit, I am wearing olive colored Agnes & Dora leggings, black shirt from Pink Blush Maternity, and the cardigan, boots and necklace are from from Maurices. This one might be my favorite outfit of the bunch. There is something about getting ready for the day that makes me feel like I could take on the world. I am making a baby for goodness sake, I can do anything! Even if getting ready just means making sure that I have a pretty necklace on to go along with my hair being in a bun, it makes me feel more confident in the way that I look.
This last outfit, I really love for Sundays or days that I am supposed to dress up for something. The Agnes & Dora skirt is stretchy and comfortable, and the striped top from Pink Blush Maternity is so comfortable. I paired it with a necklace I picked up from a boutique and some royal blue shoes I got from Forever Young Shoes. I love the subtle pops of color.
Frankly there, are so many things that you can wear while pregnant. It doesn’t always have to be a t-shirt and yoga pants. You can be pregnant plus look and feel like a million bucks. REALLY! Here are my tips of things to avoid while pregnant.
- If you are 9 months pregnant, you should NOT try to wear your pre-pregnancy clothes. Just don’t. They are too small and even if you can squeeze yourself into them, you shouldn’t do it. You will be pulling that shirt down over your belly and those pants will fall down over and over again. It isn’t worth the work!
- If you are wearing leggings, make sure your shirt is long enough to cover not only your stomach, but also your lady parts. No one wants to see that.
- Wearing clothing with words on your stomach. Why? Need I say more? You don’t need to draw more attention to your stomach. Everyone can already see it.
- Make sure your belly is covered. It is not attractive to see the bottom of your stomach hanging out from under your shirt.
There are some tips for you. Take them for whatever they are worth. I am definitely no expert, and sometimes it is all you can do to get dressed in the morning while pregnant. I get that. But, maybe getting ready for the day is going to be that extra little push to make you feel better and ready to take on the day.
