With fall finally here, I’ve put together my 25 favorite #OOTD’s from my first pregnancy, since I know quite a few mommies-to-be follow along here. With my first pregnancy I was most pregnant during the fall and winter time. With my second baby, I was most pregnant in the spring time, so I will do a recap on that maternity style next year.
Getting dressed while pregnant wasn’t easy, especially towards the very end, but it sure felt good to be put-together in between the nausea and fatigue. Taking a little extra time to feel good about myself really helped me get through pregnancy feeling happier and as close to my non-pregnant self as possible.
Part of your pre-pregnancy wardrobe is definitely workable with a bump, but for those staple items such as jeans that in my opinion need to be maternity, my favorite retailers were the Nordstrom maternity section (wonderfully curated, awesome brands), ASOS Maternity (trendy mid-range and special pieces perfect for photoshoots), Gap Maternity (great basics), Destination Maternity (great selection), Target’s maternity section (great basics), LOFT (classy and timeless), and Shopbop (trendy designer). Also, I didn’t know about this when I was pregnant, but Nordstrom Rack has some maternity online now too at pretty decent prices!
