Believe it or not, we are in the middle of moving into a new place! Yes, unfortunately, we have to leave the apartment we are currently in and this is the most definitely what I call a "bad timing" considering my pregnancy and all. We found a nice new place that has a lot of potential but as you all know, I don't have much time ... Hopefully, the little guy will wait until his due date! Wish me luck! :)
In this post, I'm leaving you with a little recap of my maternity outfits as well as my personal tips and tricks to look and feel your best during pregnancy ... Hopefully one day, you'll find them useful! :P Kisses!
|Tip 1/ At the beginning of the pregnancy, when you still have that small belly (that you usually only have after a good meal or two or three beers), oversized shirts and boyfriend jeans are your best allies, believe me!|
|Tip 4/ Yet again - oversized! This time in a form of a leather trousers. Most of them are made with elasticated waist so you can wear them bellow you bump. Not only super comfy but also - super stylish!|
|Tip 6/ Pencil skirts - my way of looking sexy and classy during the period when most women don't feel that way! ;)|
|Tip 9/ If you want to attract attention from your bump - textures can play a very important role. Pleated skirt, floopy sweater (intentionally) and tartan scarf falling everywhere... at the first sight, who would say that I'm six months pregnant! :)?|
* Don't buy much maternity clothes because most of them you'll not be able to wear afterwards. Rely on the things you already have in your closet just wear them in another way. Be creative and don't be afraid to mix and match.
* Still, if you're not "only dresses and skirts" kind of girl, invest only in a pair of maternity jeans. If you ask me, they are the only item that you'll have to search for into maternity section of the shop. Everything else that you might need, you'll be able to find in the regular shop only in a bigger size.
*Speaking of sizing ... if you don't gain like 20-30 kg (or only 5-6 kg) but average 10-15 kg ... sizing goes like this:
First trimester: buy your regular size
Second trimester: one size up
Third trimester: two sizes up
*Try to avoid clothes with two many patterns all over. If you have a colorful top, don't play too much with your lower part but choose something neutral or vice versa. Use accessories to make you outfit more fun and colorful.
