Ok ya’ll, it’s time to de-frump the bump! Can anyone please tell me when they’ve been excited to wear “maternity” clothes? I mean, really. Excited maybe in the sense that it can be a lot more comfortable than your regular, tighter, more-restrictive-not-so-forgiving clothing. With my experience they may or may not be super flattering…at least compared to what it could be. But it can be hard to think outside of the box when you aren’t feeling your best and just need to get dressed. Trust me, I’ve been there many times!
I’m not saying they are terrible and they can definitely be cute. But speaking from how I feel about the way I look when I’m pregnant (let’s just say it’s not 100% on top of the world) it would help if I loved my outfit! My confidence is so much higher when I actually LIKE what I’m wearing! What a concept, right? This rings true for any time of my life, not just pregnancy. I think it is especially true while pregnant because some days you just don’t feel like doing a whole lot more than the absolute necessary – but when you have a cute outfit on you are a little more ready to face the day!
Below are 8 different outfits showing you that a little effort, some accessories and a big smile will help change all that!
Striped Shirt | Free People Cardigan (thrifted), similar here, here & here | Scarf | Leggings | Boots, similar here, here, here and here | Tori Burch Bag, this color would be amazing too! | Maternity Support Tank I wear everyday
The best part is NONE of these are actually “maternity” clothes. They are all just stretchy/roomy enough to fit and accomodate a growing belly (and a few other places)! I hope this gives ya’ll some inspiration – pregnant or not – to make an effort to like what you put on for the day! I promise you will feel a boost of confidence we could all use a little of!
PS – Did you guys enter our GIVEAWAY yet? Hurry! It ends Friday evening!
