My Ultimate Maternity Basics Guide

Happy Sunday Ladies! This pregnancy is in FULL swing now and we have officially ventured into maternity wear! I have to say I think maternity clothes have really come a long way and love that so many designers are incorporating more fashionable pieces for their prego buyers! That being said I still don’t like to spend a ton on clothes that can only be worn for a short period of time so here are some of my favorite basics I invest in along with a look from a couple weeks ago…..

Keeping it comfy and cozy in a beanie, thermal long sleeve, puffer vest and hunter rain boots!

Old Navy Maternity Thermal Top
Old Navy Puffer Vest
AG Maternity Jeans c/o A Pea in the Pod
Slouchy Beanie from Shopbop
OTK Socks (similar HERE)
Hunter Boots
and here is my Ultimate Maternity Basics Guide…..

Ruching is a girls best friend! That bunched up fabric does wonders for flattering the bump and camouflaging those popped out belly buttons 😉 Also lots V neck tops and some maternity maxi’s that can be dressed up or down!

and in the shoe department…

I’m not going to lie, I still rock a heel from time to time but only ones with a platform or wedge and for short periods of time. The rest of the time you will catch me in flats! Whether it’s comfy sneaks, rain boots, or over the knee boots… flats and comfort are a must (esp when chasing a toddler is involved too)!

and the biggest maternity must….denim! When I finally made the switch over to maternity jeans last month there was no turning back! lol The last three pairs in this set have been on heavy rotation in my wardrobe! Also if you’ve been prego before you know there is nothing more comfy than Gap Maternity leggings (definitely a mama must!). Here are a few of my favorites at all price points….

and lastly these aren’t maternity but by adding a fab scarf or hat can instantly dress up your maternity basics!

I hope this was helpful for all my mamas to be!!

    Your style is beyond amazing – practical and classy, and so easy to copy. I am not pregnant, but I will go to Old Navy tomorrow to buy a vest, so I can copy this style :). I only wish, you would do more 'style' posts about what you wear on a daily basis and such. So, so, so and so inspirational! Love your blog and style!!!

    I urge you to try the H&M maternity denim. They have a great line and I almost lived in my jeans from there on my last pregnancy.
