COMMENT: This isn’t my first rodeo being pregnant. I spent much of last time trying to find wardrobe staples that fit the ever-expanding bump, that were practical yet still me. Both pregnancy and motherhood have yet to change my style or my will to wear what I genuinely love. Perhaps there are incredibly cool maternity brands out there, but I’m yet to find one to invest in. Instead, I base my wardrobe choices on what I find in my favourite stores and by my favourite brands. This time around I know that I can wear any skirt or short that fits below the bump (as thankfully the bump grows but the rest of me stays relatively normal- well, that’s what I like to tell myself!). Obviously all tops need to have enough space for the expanding bump but finding one that has a bit of extra length is the most important factor to ensure my stomach is covered. These cami’s from Sana all fit the bill as they have enough length to cover yet are still effortlessly cool. Statement accessories have become my recent pregnancy craving as they can be worn beyond my expected due date. Actually, my whole pregnancy style motto is to find items that I’m still going to love beyond this brief moment in time and that are a worthy addition to my wardrobe. As a typical type A control freak, there may be a lot of changes taking place within me and around me but my style is still my own. Phew!
