Maternity Skinny Jeans and Printed Tops: Second Trimester SAHM Style

I'm really enjoying wearing my maternity jeans again. It's so nice having something to wear that I know I'll fit into and feel good in. In the second trimester the bump grows so quickly it can be hard to guess what to wear each day!

What I wore:

Away From Blue Blog | floral print cami jeanswest maternity skinny jeans 2nd trimester

AwayFromTheBlue | Rebecca Minkoff silver metallic mini MAC bag with black skinnies
CamiJeanswest 'Amber' floral print ruffle cami
JeansJeanswest maternity skinny jeans in black
ShoesAsos 'five star' leather sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes pink clic clac
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I tried on a few other tops before I got to this one. It's pretty, so I wanted to wear it before the bump got too big, but I was really pushing the limits of it. Although it did fit better than a few of the other tops I'd tried, it didn't feel comfortable at all and I was wishing I'd picked a different top after a few hours!

Took toddler T out to a trial class of gymboree, which is like kind of like baby gymnastics. Basically a morning of play learning new moves; bouncing, running, rolling, swinging, singing songs. It was really fun! Toddler T loved it and I wasn't too tired out by the end of it (I did wonder how I'd cope running along with him!).


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarerfloral ruffle cami, black maternity skinny jeans, Asos leather sandals, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC.

Other ways to wearfloral ruffle cami and a maxi skirt, black maternity skinny jeans in the office, Asos leather sandals and a maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC and a printed dress.

ShoesIkwetta 'Circles of life' sandals (C/O)
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale with black hardware!)

Why I wore it:

Wearing my super comfortable maternity jeans again to take toddler T to playgroup. I loved everything about this outfit and wouldn't change a thing!

It was a slightly cooler day in Brisbane after a couple of wet and stormy days, so it was perfect for jeans. I am grateful for the cooler weather as it lets me wear the jeans a little longer, I know in no time at all summer will be here and I'll have ditched them for shorts. I've already bought another pair of maternity shorts in anticipation....

  2. I think skinny jeans looks great in both outfits, but my fav is the first one...that floral blouse is so feminine and while I'm all team stripes and print mixing...that first blouse really caught my eye.

    1. haha let me tell you, in the end it's a struggle! getting dressed is just pulling on the trackie dacks, unless you have to venture outside (which I tried to make sure I did once a day so I'd have a reason to make an effort and get out of the trackie dacks!). Growing a human is hard work though, in the end it doesn't matter what you wear as long as you're happy and comfortable :)

  23. Maternity jeans are my life savior with the bump growing so quickly this time! But I feel you on tops, even my oversize sweaters barely fit anymore, and my parka isn't as easily closed as it used to be...

  26. Gymboree? I wish we had something like that here! Actually there's a place here called Skymaxx and it's a room full of trampolines. We take Penny some times during toddler time. She LOVES it! (: A fun cold weather activity for sure!

    Dont you love relaxed outfits you actually feel great about? (:

    1. Oh the trampolines sound like fun! :D It's funny, we go to gymboree here because it's great in hot weather - because it's air conditioned! ha!

  32. Nothing is worse than realising your outfit is super uncomfy halfway through the day! It must be difficult when your shape is changing so quickly to have a repertoire of things you know won't cause you any issues. I like your second outfit in particular, I have a lot of stripy things but never know what to wear with them. The pattern mixing works well!

    1. Yes it's definitely at that point where it's hard to know what will fit each day! I'm hoping I don't have too many more outfits like the first one, and they are more like the second.
