I love the spring season. I love seeing the bright colors make their way into the clothing in stores. I love the longer sunny days. I love hearing the birds sing again, making it seem like it should be warmer out than it is.
Spring also means babies! Usually baby birds, squirrels, and other animals, but this year it seems to mean babies for people, too! A lot of my facebook friends are pregnant right now and having babies between now and August. Must be something in the air...
This Friday I want to celebrate all the mamas and mamas-to-be out there with some pregnancy inspired favorites. Here you go!
1. Trendy distressed jeans
I am obsessed with my maternity jeans from Target. I prefer the kangaroo-pocket, over the belly jeans because I find they stay up better. I also love them because I went a full size down in these, so they definitely run big!
One of the best pieces of advice is to dress your bump monochromatically. Dressing in all black or a mix of similar colors keeps you looking chic and not frumpy. Make sure to add a great accessory like a different color purse or leather to keep your look fresh.
Emily Blunt, pregnant with second child, has her fashion game right!
Okay, so totally different piece of advice: take pride in your bump! Be proud of your new womanly figure and enjoy your new curves. The pregnant form is a beautiful form, and there is no reason to hide it. Dress in bright colors, stripes, patterns-- anything you feel fabulous in!
I am bananas about my leggings, so when mine started cutting uncomfortably into my abdomen I was pretty bummed. Fortuntely I found these leggings with a kangaroo-pocket. They fit very well, are a little thicker for no show through, and even have a low cross-cut backside so you don't feel so sausage wrapped.
I'm the first to admit, I thought spending money on a big pillow was asinine. I mean-- it's just a pillow, right? Wrong. I was having trouble getting comfortable sleeping and since the store didn't have any regular body pillows, I broke down and bought Boppy.
I LOVE BOPPY. The best bed partner since my husband. It really helps you get comfortable, is washable, and is curved to fit a pregnant woman's body. I can't recommend this pillow enough.
