I have been meaning to write this post since I announced by pregnancy back in August. A few of you sweethearts have been asking where I have been, how I’ve been feeling and wondering where I’ve been. I am doing really great, and I owe you a major update on my second trimester now that I am almost halfway through my third (eek!). If I am being honest, I have loved slowing down a bit and spending quality time with the people I love most. I have been off my phone for the majority of the Summer and Fall to really enjoy this pregnancy. I took a step back from the blog because something just needed to give. Between work (which I absolutely love), buying our first house, renovating said house, and moving at 31 weeks pregnant, I just found myself not finding the right words or stories to share here. Now, that all of the madness is almost behind us (just in time for another big life change to happen), I honestly have so much to tell you! So, minus the lack of a good outfit to share, I want to tell you about all of the pieces I have been wearing the last few months. I almost created a capsule-like wardrobe for myself because I am determined not to buy too many things that I won’t want to wear post-baby.
Around 24 weeks I bought my first pairs of maternity jeans. With the help and recommendations from most of my girlfriends, I ended up with four pairs: DL196, 7 For All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, and Hatch x Current Elliot (currently en route to me!) I decided I would do a white, dark denim, bootleg crop, and a lighter wash. Since I mostly wear jeans in the Fall to work, it is nice to have a good rotation. I also wanted a few pairs of non-denim, so I found this cute pair of black Hatch pants and a few cozy sweats.
TOPS AND SWEATERS
I have actually found that thanks to my love for oversized clothes (pre-pregnancy), I haven’t had to buy too many new tees and sweaters. I should say, until this week when I noticed my tees were starting to turn into crop tops. :) I found Zara sweaters to be great, cardigans like this one, and these Hatch Tees were in my weekly rotation this week. Also, I found a few “going out” tops that work well with the bump too!
If there is one thing I have come to especially love, it’s pajamas. Like a whole new love for this category of cozy clothes. Roller Rabbit, Lake, Eberjey and Hatch are a few of my favorite brands to note.
Next week I will be sharing what I am wearing for my baby shower and a few other cute options! :)
