Maternity outfits challenge: one pair of pants for three quick looks


Hi there sweeties!Guess what? I've hit WEEK 30 of pregnancy!! 9 more weeks to go, wohooo! Everything is going great according to the last medical visit and the little one is in great shape :)
I am feeling wonderful, but I am also feeling HUGE! I supposed I'm not the only pregnant woman out there with these feelings, and except if you have Kate Middleton's kind of figure (or her kind of money), getting dressed actually becomes a daily challenge after week 30, and I thought it would be nice and useful to share my experience on the blog.

I am having more and more difficulties to choose my everyday outfits and feel both comfortable and aesthetically at ease. At this point my belly size has exploded, I've put on several kilograms, so my regular pants won't help me anymore. Maternity clothes is something that you may want to invest in these cases, but of course, knowing that you'll be wearing them only for few weeks left and knowing that budget usually diminishes with the arrival of a baby, so you'd need to BUY WISE and exploit a max. the clothing you already have and still fit.

In my case I decided to get a new pair of maternity pants, because I have several large and loose tops and cardigans that I can still wear. By keeping the same accessories (boots and belt) I have now three variants for wearing my pants!

Total blue:

Mint maxi cardi:

Grey-ish Top:


So far, so good. These pants have saved me everytime the past couple of weeks, because weather was too cold for leggings or dresses with stockings. They are stretch corduroy slim cut, warm and comfy!

Please, feel free to share your experience, ideas of outfits I could wear, or that you wore being pregnant, or ways to improve my maternity looks! Your comments are most welcome :)

Love,
Nati

  2. I don't have kids yet, but OMG I'm gonna totally copy your style when it happens! I saw and tried the same H&M mama pants from my friend when she got them, they're were so comfy. I though about this and if I was (and when ;D) pregnant I'd go for comfortable anything. Leggings, hoodies, over-sized boyfriend shirts, maybe even a maxi dress? But you look so adorable and fashionable in all 3 looks :D And I don't know, I haven't seen you before, but you don't look like you've put on much weight if you ask me, you look amazing :D

    1. Oh Glee, what a nice thing to say! you really know how to pickup my moral, being pregnant is beautiful but hard at the same time, specially if you like fashion!

  7. I think you look gorgeous and the outfits are really stylish. If I were in your shoes I'd probably choose comfort over aesthetically pleasing haha.. or well, try less hard :P oh dear!

    1. Thank you Natasja! You know I almost always choose comfort over aesthetics, but during pregnancy (and this is not necessary true for every women, but for me it is) hormones take you like in an emotional roller-coaster. I don't know if you get the pic. Some days I wake up feeling hideous, and look at myself in the mirror and find nothing but defects and uglies. Then, I can choose, embrace my pillow and cry away the whole day, or embrace my wardrobe and TRY TO DO SOMEtHING ABOUT IT!! of course my personality is mostly the second option ;)
