This outfit combination is an easy way to dress in maternity fashion over the 9 months of rocking your cute little baby bump!
Let me just start out by saying that maternity fashion is actually SO FUN. I wasn’t expecting to love it whenever I saw myself as an oh-so-pregnant cathclaire, but I have genuinely enjoyed dressing with my latest accessory: a baby bump. It’s a fun challenge – you know, dressing like you are hiding a basketball under your skirt. lol
If I’m being completely honest, I haven’t limited myself to purchasing only “maternity” labeled pieces. Some of the maternity pieces I have been wearing (few and far between) are leggings from ASOS, a shawl from HATCH, this rust skirt I am wearing in this blogpost, and the dress I wore to my baby shower (see on instagram here). Aside from those pieces – I have had a lot of fun experimenting with regular (sorry I don’t know what word to use here..) clothing and sizing up – of course, I am sticking to fashion pieces that are more forgiving in the baby bump area. I did alot of this on our babymoon, see what I wore here.
One of my go-to looks has been a high waisted skirt with a tied up collared shirt. I love how this outfit perfectly balances elements of femininity and masculinity in a simple, yet COMFY – bump friendly- outfit. Oh, that’s another thing. I am ALL about comfy. I added another pair of Gucci fur slides to my wardrobe and call them my pregnancy shoes because they seriously are the most comfy shoes to wear – all of the time. I love how the white contrasts my usual all black outfit. You can find the same ones at Bloomingdales here.
