Leopard and stripes & everything nice

The farther along I get in my pregnancy the harder I am finding it to dress the bump without wearing my usual leggings and baggy shirt.  I am slowly learning how to style my changing body and I know this is only the beginning since I still have 19 weeks remaining and my belly will only get larger.

Thank goodness for a Pea in the Pod.  I am so thankful I found their store in Beverly Hills.  When I initially started looking at maternity wear I felt like a lot of the items were out of date and frumpy.  Not something I would normally wear…so why would I want to invest and wear something that I wasn’t excited about?

As son as I entered A Pea in the Pod, I knew I had hit the jackpot.  They had every brand of jeans you could imagine and all with the stretchy pregnancy waistband!!  Other known brands were in the store as well, from dress pants, dresses, sweaters and more.  I was finally excited to purchase maternity clothing.

Lately, my looks have been a mix of maternity and non-maternity wear.  I am trying not to buy too many things that I will only wear for a few months.  I have also bought some non maternity clothing that is looser or larger and will fit my growing belly.  I make sure these are items I will still wear post baby.  I have gone up a size or made sure the cut would work with my growing bump.  Thankfully I love wearing oversized shirts so I can still stick with my usual style!  I also have been finding it helpful to look at other pregnant fashion bloggers and instagrammers for inspiration.

Todays look is something I would wear prior to pregnancy.  I love leather pants and thankfully with the belly band I am still able to squeeze into these.  Something about leather that makes a woman feel super sexy.

Adding a blazer always makes a look elegant.  I think its a good addition during pregnancy as its a way to feel sexy and chic with your growing body.

Black gray and white are my usual colors of choice.  The mix of patterns brightens up the look and gives it some depth.
