When you get pregnant you have to buy a whole new wardrobe to accommodate your growing bump, and after you have the baby you have to do the same except this time you don't want to look pregnant. Post-partum fashion is HAARD.

Your breasts are larger because your nursing, so you need new bras. You can only wear tops and dresses that allow you to access your breasts easily to breastfeed. Your stomach is slowly going down, but you can't fit into your old jeans right away and your maternity jeans are too big. So what in the heck do you wear?! I'm a former stylist and I'm asking myself the same question.

I've solved your problem. You wear a daily uniform of nursing bras, shirt dresses and leggings. BINGO! It's chic and easy because in all honesty in NEED easy in my life right now.

Call me crazy, but I just flew across country 32 weeks pregnant and I made it safely to the east coast to celebrate my cousin's wedding and to enjoy some r & r with my family. This is our last trip as a family of three (tear).

I mentioned on Instagram last week that I've lived in maxi dresses throughout most of my second and third trimester. I can't imagine wearing anything else in this summer heat. I'm loving this white lace one I found at Target. It's lightweight and airy - perfect for the summer.

My new favorite travel accessory is this weekender bag from ModCloth. It was my birthday gift my from  hubby, and it embodies my love for east coast preppy style completely. I love that it comes with a cross-body strap for carrying convenience.

Summer Blues


This post is sponsored by Lindt Chocolate.

Chocolate and fashion - two of my favorite things. I've teamed up with Lindt Chocolate to share with you style inspired by the delicious and beautiful coconut LINDOR truffle. Other than black and white, blue is the color that is most universally flattering for all skin tones, and the aqua packaging of the coconut truffle is a perfect pairing with summer fashion. Blue tones of an ocean, pool and sky are all part of the summer experience, and now eating truffles by my pool is too. I may only get a couple hours of peace and quite throughout the day, but those hours are definitely filled with tasty treats and relaxation when I can manage it.


I chose a trapeze maxi dress from Alixandra Collections to wear for my Lindt fashion challenge because it's a dress that I would wear pregnant or not-pregnant. It has a luxurious and easy quality to it along with a flattering solid strip down the center. The color palette of the dress is mostly navy and white, but the flecks of lighter blues and even pastel pink create more interest. The fact that this dress has a strong pattern helps disguise any extra curves you might want to hide (although I can't really hide my bump anymore).

Featured on is an amazing resource for new parents. And while discovering this new world of parenthood, I was pleasantly surprised to see an email in my inbox asking to feature my maternity session with Gina Meola. After two sleepless weeks of being a mom, it feels extra special to be featured on this awesome parenting resource. Thanks Babble!

Maternity Outfits I Love

I've had a couple requests come may way over the past month to share some of my favorite maternity outfits...Ask and you shall receive! I created several different mood boards appealing to a variety of fashion styles - feminine, preppy, rocker, etc. In each set I have sprinkled maternity clothes with non-maternity clothes because I, personally, have found that sometimes just going up a size or two in regular clothes fits me better than actual pregnancy fashions. It's just a matter of trial and error.

These sets also include a lot fall trends such as leopard, peter pan collars, black leather and gold. There is no reason pregnant women can't enjoy all of the fun fashion trends like the rest of the ladies out there. Embrace your bump, get comfortable bras and underwear and then go to town shopping!

PREPPY PREGGO - Cardigan, skinny jeans and a peter pan collared blouse...This is the perfect outfit for the city prep. When you're pregnant your balance is a bit off, so flats are usually my shoe of choice for shopping and errands. Adding a touch of color to your lips is a stylish and fast accessory that doesn't take much thought too.

ROCKIN' THE BUMP - There's nothing more comfortable than cotton when you're pregnant. So, a simple long t-shirt, stretchy leggings and a killer jacket create an EASY and COMFY look that is completely on trend. Accessorize with chunky jewelry and an awesome purse.

PRETTY & PREGNANT - Above, I mentioned that cotton is the best fabric to wear when pregnant, so this jersey dress is a beautiful, comfortable option too. With a tie around the waist to accent your bump, a statement necklace to draw attention back up to your face and a simple cardigan to cover any arm bulges, you are set for date with your love or brunch with your girl friends.

METRO MATERNITY - I feel like I lived in maxi dresses throughout my pregnancy, so this outfit combination is most like my style. This fall take a cropped sweater and put it over your favorite summer maxi dress to keep warm and stay fashionable. Add a scarf, some awesome shoes and other accessories and walk out the door.
