As soon as I can I will be back to posting my usual daily outfits. I'll be sharing bits and pieces on my instagram (@awayfromblue) about life with baby until I'm back to blogging.
Today I'm talking about my pregnancy wardrobe and the non-maternity pieces I used and wore through my third trimester.
My goal in pregnancy was to buy as few maternity pieces as possible. Some things that had worked for the second trimester (like wrap dresses, pencil skirts) no longer worked in the third trimester, or needed a few changes (like adding leggings to now shorter dresses). In the third trimester, I found the following non-maternity pieces in my wardrobe worked well, and I included an example of an outfit with each.
- Empire waist and loose fitting dresses
- Stretchy jersey dresses and leggings
- Maxi dresses
- Fitted stretchy singlets
- Fitted stretchy tees
- Oversized tees
- Maxi skirts with elastic waists
I defaulted to maxi skirts and dresses a lot as they were the easiest and most comfortable option most days and I really embraced them in the third trimester.
