Third Trimester Maternity Style

Here I am writing this on the eve of my due date! Unfortunately, no baby just yet. Just as the first and second trimester, the third went very smoothly. Outside of discomfort, I have felt great. I am still walking almost everyday about 2 miles worked up until a few days ago, including a full planning wedding at 37 weeks. I am not too swollen or puffy, but definitely slowing down to just accomplishing the things that have to get done and loving extra hard on my first born. Hence the slow down of posting in this space. I just can’t seem to get it all, plus the blog done. Thankfully I am to the finish line of this part.

As for my third trimester maternity style, it was hot. Really hot, for much of the time. I think I have mentioned that I gravitate toward billowy clothes, which was still the case during the last 12 weeks. I did try the fab, fitted Stowaway collection dress below. This little number really flattered my big ole bump. I did also pick up some cheap “denim” shorts. I quoted denim, because the option below I bought, are definitely not denim, but they got me though the past 6 weeks. The Old Navy top below is not maternity, but worked really well. The final look, the jumpsuit, was the best $20 I spent on clothes in a long time! I found this comfy black jumpsuit at an American Eagle outlet for literally $20. While it’s not the best quality, it has lasted all 40 weeks of growing this baby!

First Trimester Maternity Capsule

Well, my first trimester has come and gone! I cannot believe how fast its flying by! Still feeling good, my energy is starting to come back. My writing this at 9:22 is evidence of that! Thank goodness! Falling asleep at 9:00PM was cramping my style! I have been craving fruit and fruity candy. All the sour and fruity candy!

I wanted to share with you my first trimester maternity capsule collection. I spent the last three months hiding my bump under cozy sweaters, blazers and cardigans. In general my maternity style is very much like my normal day-to-day style, mostly classic, with a twist. In pregnancy (and life) I like relaxed silhouettes, nothing too fitted. I had to retire my favorite high-waisted Levi’s about a week after I took a pregnancy test, but I am still rocking my mid-rise Madewell jeans on repeat. The following have been my go-to looks, keeping warm while working with my baby bump. So far have not made any special purchases or have even dug into my old maternity stash. Only a matter of time though…
