34 weeks with baby 3! Outfit linked below…
Happy Saturday everyone!
This post has been on the back of my mind for weeks now and I wanted to get it out this week! I had another post planned as well (holiday dress wear) for those of you still looking for your Christmas outfits but I’ll try to get that one up by early next week.
Things have been crazy with my boys being sick, especially my youngest with an ear infection. I’m a little behind on here, and I’ve got boat loads of wrapping to do! Yikes! I think we are on the mend finally, once we got some meds he has been feeling sooo much better thank god! There is nothing worse than sick little babies :(
Anyway, obviously I have been pregnant three times so I have had a lot of time for trial and error on maternity fashion and what feels and looks good. I also love to look good, but also be comfortable! Especially because with my last 2 pregnancies I have been running after other kids , and even my first I was doing a ton of coaching through the whole pregnancy!
There have been so many things that I have either ordered and hated, or wore a couple times, and realized after wear that it didn’t work (ie. fell down, too much pressure on stomach, stretched out, etc.) and I don’t want you all to make the same mistake!!
SO. I have made a huge list of all my maternity faves. I have tried to mix winter and summer stuff in here but that is hard because its the dead of winter! LOL. Also…a lot of this stuff is neutrals…so sorry if it is boring colors lol…I build around it with accessories, oversized sweaters, tunics, cardigans, etc because you’re only pregnant for so long so you don’t want to completely buy a ton! ALSO…these can be GREAT gifts if you have a loved one who is newly pregnant!! Trust me, giving the Zella Leggings is like the GOLDEN ticket for a pregnant mama!!
I also plan on doing a blog post on some of my favorite transitional pieces which are great for first trimester (and even second if you are carrying small or a first time mom). These pieces generally are also perfect for that transitional postpartum period when you’re not back to your normal size but want to feel good and wear regular (not maternity) clothing!! These are all clothes I would wear even if I wasn’t pregnant and most were already in my closet anyway!
I plan on doing a post potentially next week or over Christmas on my favorite workout gear while pregnant so I will have a few more options on different items then! I hope this helps you pregnant mamas….!!xo
My number 1 on the list has to be the maternity Zella leggings. I wear these basically every day. Amazing quality, can be dressed up or down, they are the BEST. Hands down, the number one item I can’t live without. These fit TTS, select your pre-pregnancy size.
Second thing I wear the most is Gap’s Pure body tees. I wear these under sweaters, coats, to run in, perfect for layering. They are cotton, super comfy and cheap when you get them on sale. Must have. (Gap currently has 30% off everything!)
Same as above but these are the short sleeve option!
Finding jeans can be tough. I’ve found that I like the Old Navy Rockstar ones the best. I’ve honestly tried every designer brand and I like these the best! Like Gap, they have good sales so get them on sale (I believe right now these are on sale too!) These don’t fall down too much, are comfy and look good. Note that the dark wash of these run a little smaller. I got the second smallest size for reference.
Spanx Faux leather leggings for maternity-these are great to head out to dinner or dress up your every day outfit. I did find they slipped a little but I think I needed to size down to the XS. They look amazing though and are definitely comfortable and you can move in them.
I love these fleeces. They are great to and from the gym or even just at home. I used them also to run in. Run TTS.
Love me some overalls! TTS and super cute…as seen in my photo!!
Distressed overalls…comfy and so cute! Can transition from winter to spring, can be worn in summer or fall and a warmer winter day!!
I didn’t love the blue wash of the madewell maternity jeans, but I loved these black ones. I lived in them in Paris. Great color, super comfy. TTS to madewell brand (which usually runs a little big)
I love these Ingrid and Isabel leggings!
This is a great non maternity dress that you can wear through all stages of pregnancy and AFTER. Its a flattering fit. Not pregnant I usually size up to a S, and when pregnant M. Its on sale right now as well and comes in tons of colors! Here is the tank version, and the long sleeve version.
My favorite maternity workout tank
Awesome top for cooler days, for athleisure or even to run in.
Cutest suit and only $17!
Turtleneck from ASOS. Good fit, soft, great for layering. I’m wearing this in the photo.
My second fave jeans are the J Brand Mama J.
Love these camo leggings! TTS- don’t size up.
This vest is great for layering during fall/winter/spring! I have this in black.
Cute striped LS top from ASOS. I would size up, runs a little small.
I love this two pack of tees from ASOS. I wore these a ton when I was pregnant with my second (it was summer so it was hot)- super comfy, go with everything, can be layered if need be and the price is great.
Favorite tank to wear when pregnant!
Cozy sweater and great fit and price ! Comes in tons of colors.
Another turtleneck option
I really like these joggers and might order them! They keep selling out but I’ll prob order them now that they are in stock.
This is for sure my favorite sports bra to wear when I’m pregnant for high impact activities- running, etc. It keeps your girls in place and it also has straps for nursing so when you have the baby you can wear this as well. It is definitely harder to get on but for me its totally worth it because my chest size increases like 3 times when pregnant and nursing so I need the tight support!
Lastly these are my fave jean shorts while pregnant!
Congrats and let me know if you have any questions about anything!
