Maternity, My Style

A little camouflage (and a lotta volume) go a long way in helping to keep my growing baby bump under wraps when I need to these days! When I wasn’t quite ready to shout from the rooftops about my pregnancy in the first trimester, outfits like this became my go-to uniform. And the best part is that this ensemble is totally something I would wear even if I wasn’t knocked up!

I’m at the sort of weird stage now where most of my regular clothes no longer fit properly, but I’m not quite ready to dive full-force into the maternity section just yet. In any case, maintaining my personal style throughout pregnancy is very important to me, and helps keep me (somewhat) sane even during those times when I feel like I’ve been invaded by a body-snatcher (albeit a sweet one that I already love to pieces).

About the Fit:
I’ve had these leggings for a few years now, and they’re super high-quality  and oh-so-comfy. I own them in two colors and pack them for just about every vacation, and they’ve held up extremely well throughout lots of adventures. The fit is true-to-size, and they’re substantial enough where you never have to worry about see-through mishaps… even if you have a little extra junk in the trunk!

One peek at my husband’s closet (or his Instagram), and it becomes pretty clear he has a favorite pattern: Black Watch Plaid. Over the years, he’s amassed quite the collection of garments in his signature print, including everything from socks to a winter parka. I’ve even jumped on the bandwagon and purchased a few goodies myself to mix into my wardrobe.

Once a year on the day after Thanksgiving, while most couples are probably out shopping ’til they drop, I indulge hubby’s passion for tartan by celebrating his favorite fashion ‘holiday’: Black Watch Friday. Hence today’s uber preppy and matchy-matchy ensemble.

I only got into this color combo a few years ago, but I’m totally digging it. Pink and red have been my favorite colors since childhood, but for some strange reason, I never thought to pair them together. In any case, I’m making up for lost time.

I’ve been living in this super cozy oversized sweater dress for the past few weeks with no plans to stop any time soon. It’s sold out online, but if you swing by your location H&M, I’ll be you can find one. I popped into two stores recently, and they still had a number of sizes in stock.

About the Fit
Even though this dress is definitely oversized, I went up a size for extra coziness (and to guard against shrinkage). My husband asked me if I bought the right size, but sometimes boys just don’t get it, lol! As the temps continue to drop, I’ll also be wearing this with leggings and tights for a different look.
