WHAT I WORE | Maternity Style – 12 Weeks


Okay, I may or may not be pooching out my belly a bit. But who doesn’t like eating a big lunch and then totally being allowed to do the belly pooch thing? Not me, that’s for sure! I love it! Probably my favorite part of being pregnant. Ha!

So, here are a couple of garments I found at the thrift store that I thought could grow with me during the pregnancy, and also be useful afterwards. This shirt is an extra large (will go great over my belly with a pair of maternity trousers), and the cut of this dress (and knit structure) will be complimentary to a small person growing inside my belly. That’s the kind of work mentality I like in a wardrobe!

    So cute :) I love this little series of photos. It’s so special seeing women I admire getting super excited about their pregnancies. One day when that happens for me, you can bet i’ll be gorging myself on any piece of food I can find, saying its for the baby, but really it will just be my own indulgences. I love a good big meal.
    I love your new shirt, so dang cute. And you definitely should do a tutorial on how to find pregnancy appropriate thrift store finds that will work through a few months of being pregnant. i bet a lot of ladies would love that!

    gosh. you’re quite the stylish mama-to-be. looking good, missy.

  31. Pippi says:

    That is such a lovely hat! I love proper felt hats and i think its a huge shame that more people don’t wear them, but it makes me happy to see that you wear them and your other accessories with such grace. Also, it looks fantastic with your shorter hair (I’m a big fan)! Your baby is going to be so lucky to have a mum with such style!

  32. Ah, hello BUMP!! Milk it for all it’s worth! Surely one of the greatest perks of being pregnant?!
