I'm almost six months pregnant, and it's safe to say that dressing fashionable when pregnant is challenging for ANY woman for the following reasons: 1. Your three B's are CONSTANTLY changing - Boobs. Butt. Belly.
2. You don't feel the most confident and attractive.
3. Lace, elastic waistbands and pretty much anything skin tight feels uncomfortable.
And I'll be honest and say that I definitely feel added pressure to always look on point since I'm a fashion stylist, especially when meeting with clients for the first time. So, when Savers gave me the opportunity to shop their store and showcase outfits that I thought would be great for an expectant mom I was SUPER eager AND nervous all in one.
Any time you go shopping you never know if you're going to strike gold or strike out. Lately, I had been striking out in the maternity department, but I'm SOOO happy to say that I hit it rich at Savers. Not only was everything very affordable, but I found all sorts of styles to fit my different fashion moods.
Of course, there's no better way to document fashion finds than a photo shoot, so my friend, Kym Ventola - a fellow lover of Savers and a brilliant photographer, agreed to help me. And, since I'm not the best at doing my hair, my dear friend Kim Cornwell styled my locks to perfection.
Check out my finds!...
Look #1 - Floral is very hot right now (view past floral post), so I was psyched to find this super cute floral tunic. Plus, v-neck is essential when you're a bit busty like me. I paired it with my GAP maternity skinny jeans to give my body balance, and topped it off with gold ballet flats and a pink J.Crew belt.
Look #2 - Similar to the first look, I finished off my skinny jeans and ballet flats with a cute, silk empire waist tank top I found at Savers. It's nice and cool for the summer, and with my leather braided belt from Target and gold necklace, I'm set to enjoy the weekend.
Look #3 - This outfit satisfies the wannabe bohemian inside of me. I found this awesome gauzy, floral printed skirt with hints of summer's hottest color - coral. Then I scored a super soft, pink racer-back tank top which was a great balance with the skirt. Since gold is the metallic of choice this year, I put my gold sequined belt over the waistband to bring everything together, and topped it off with comfy ballet flats.
Look #4 - There's nothing easier than wearing a dress. You just put it on and you're set. This cotton, blue and green find is comfortable, stylish and perfect for the beach. In fact, I already wore it on my recent vacation. With simple flip-flops, I'm set.
Look #5 - I found yet another great summer top that gives me room to grow and a print to show off. So many maternity clothes are plain solid colors, and when you're growing in size prints can be your best friend. With shorts or jeans, this top exemplifies easy, summer style.
Look #6 - My hubby has great taste and bought me this beautiful dress for Mother's Day. I paired it with a reversible polka dot and striped, sleeveless button-down blouse I found. I love mixing and matching patterns, and this was a perfect pairing. I can't wait to wear this blouse even when I'm not pregnant.
Thank you Savers for giving me the chance to find some awesome maternity clothes!
