Bonjour from Paris my loves!
I am so excited to be sharing this post with you today! We have so been enjoying our “babymoon” to Paris for a quick 4/5 day trip! We honestly haven’t gotten away for more than 30 hours just the two of us so it has been absolutely amazing to relax, recharge and take in the culture & food over here in France. I’ve never been and when I was looking at flights throughout Europe 4-5 weeks ago and stumbled upon a flight to Paris for a bargain price…I was in!
Big shout out to our friend and my mom who are holding down the fort watching our two babies! This is our first ((and last)) babymoon so we wanted to make sure it was well worth it. Paris, you have NOT disappointed!
I’ve done my fair share of travel while pregnant (especially this pregnancy) so I wanted to share a few tips about traveling while pregnant! I would definitely have to say that after traveling two long haul international like flights while pregnant, and dozens of other flights across America being comfortable is KEY.
Its not easy to find great maternity clothes that are 1. Comfortable and 2. Make you feel & look great. Enter Shop Pink Blush. I have been completely rocking their clothes this whole trip! They have cute maternity clothes for affordable pricing and totally stylish! They also have women and kids too for those who are not pregnant or nursing!!) and was SO impressed with everything I received.
My travel outfit was stylish but super comfy. I grabbed these Grey mesh Pocket cuffed Active Maternity leggings which had an over-bump panel, and side pockets (great for stashing your phone and easy access). Its hard to find good maternity travel/leisure wear without looking frumpy. When I saw this Olive Camo Print Terry hooded maternity top I absolutely had to have it-so on trend but I swear didn’t make me look pregnant at all- ha! I love how I can layer it with a tank underneath, and also a cardigan over it if the plane gets too cold! So versatile for travel which is #goals when you’re packing, am I right??!
I snagged this Button Down Maternity Midi Dress which is perfect for spring, summer, and fall and is an awesome neutral color. I love the midi length and how flattering it is! Comfortable enough to walk around all day in, but stylish enough to feel chic!
Lastly, I wanted to look good for our date nights on our trip! Any of you who know, finding things in your closet that fit you as you approach the third trimester (and third baby) are few and far between!! I’m a sucker for a good jumpsuit and this Mocha Off Shoulder Maternity Wrap Jumpsuit caught my eye right away. I honestly felt like a million dollars wearing it- the fit was excellent and I feel like I can wear it all the way through full term. The color is a great neutral and can be paired with faux fur, or a cute jacket as the weather gets cooler.

In addition to packing comfortable clothes that you feel confident, some of my other tips are:
1. Hydration! Drink tons of water before, during and after your flight. You will feel better, and look better for it.
2. Get up during the plane ride: moving is so important while traveling, especially when pregnant. Keeping the blood flow during flights is crucial. I even do some calf raises in my seat, or ankle rotations, or stretches while standing.
3. When you get in, try to move, even if its just a short brisk walk. Regardless of whether you have a 1 hour flight, or a 10 hour flight getting fresh air and a little movement will help to get you back on schedule, get adjusted faster, and have a better time!
