Maternity wardrobe

Fashion,Motherhood,Outfit,6 September 2015

As you can see the bump is getting bigger as we speak, so I thought I’d talk a bit about what I’ve found myself wearing during my pregnancies. My most basic and most worn items are for sure tube skirts, simple tight dresses and leggings. I have one short and one longer skirt that I wear with almost everything. I also wear a lot of black leggings with simple tee shirts (love the linen ones from hm men) combined with different cardigans, jackets and blazers. When I’m pregnant comfort is key and everything else secondary so I need everything to be soft and airy. I stay away from shopping maternity clothes since I know I won’t wear them after giving birth so I only buy a couple pair of necessary bras, leggings and tights. For the rest I go for the regular clothes in bigger sizes. Investing in a supportive and comfortable bra is the key to everything and my number one tip for every expecting mother out there!

I also tend to get bigger feet during my pregnancies (luckily they returned to their normal size shortly after giving birth), so I let my dear Louboutins rest on the shelf for most of the time and opt for comfort also when it comes to footwear.

Style wise pregnancy for me is a very interesting and somewhat challenging time. Everything on my body changes, and I can only dream of fitting into any of my regular clothes as soon as I plus on the pregnancy test. Some days everything feels tight and uncomfortable and I find myself wearing combinations and pieces I would never wear normally. Like tunics for example. So not something I’d wear not being pregnant! I also tend to tone down on makeup and accessories, and I kind of feel like all I want is to be clean and fresh and as natural as possible. Last time going into labour I remember it to be very important to me not have any nail polish or perfume. I didn’t color my hair during my entire pregnancy, and washed everything in scent free laundry detergent months before my due date. Interesting to see if I’ll turn into the same hippie momma this time around ;).
