Third trimester fashion

So as my pregnancy develops and my baby bump becomes bigger I’m having to adjust my wardrobe quite a bit. Finding what is comfortable and also looks nice can be a bit of a challenge.

They say everyone carries differently in pregnancy which is indeed true even for one person your bump can be different from one pregnancy to another.

Top – Zara, Skirt – H&M

The biggest change I’ve noticed is how soon I was showing with this pregnancy. Having an elongated bump means opting for longer tops that cover my bump in its entirety. This also meant going for over the bump maternity jeans and midi-length dresses.

Jumper – Weekday, Skirt – H&M

As I don’t have much longer to go I won’t be adding any new pieces to my wardrobe but I have started thinking about my wardrobe post baby. Especially the weeks/months following the birth which I remember were filled with lots of breastfeeding! Being a nursing mum means ensuring that I’m wearing items I can easily feed in whether I’m at home or out and about. For me tops that button up are the most convenient. I’m not a fan of having to hoist up my t-shirt in order to feed my child so having to just undo a couple of buttons to allow baby to quickly latch on worked best for me.

Here are some ‘breastfeeding friendly’ dresses that I quite like:

Maternity fashion

I must say that since finding out that I was pregnant maintaining my personal style has been something that has taken a lot more thought and consideration. Over the years I had heard from my friends that are mums that they really struggled to find really nice trendy high street items to dress their bump and they were so right!

Celebrating my birthday earlier this year

During my first trimester (and much of my second trimester) I was luckily able to team many of my loose fitting tops and shirts with leggings (I bought a couple of sizes up from Zara, you can purchase the exact pair here) and maternity jeans from ASOS. I bought two pairs, which you can purchase the black pair here and the blue pair here. Being able to wear much of my existing items not only saved me a few pennies but also allowed me to maintain my style and dress my bump the way I wanted.

Continued birthday celebrations!

I found out I was expecting in September the winter months meant boots, jumpers and nice stretchy tops I could layer with. Now that the weather is warming up its a lovely change to be able to wear loose flow-y dresses that are comfortable.

This was at the very beginning of my second trimester, baby bump was not very visible at this point!

 

Dressing for the summer I must say is sooo much easier. Firstly wearing less layers is more comfortable for me. Also the warmer months marked the midway mark of my pregnancy which meant having a little more energy and nearing the finish line. I found that A-line dresses are perfect for growing bumps as well as fitted dresses made with a nice stretchy fabric are great too.

Thank you for reading my first pregnancy fashion post. If you’re a mum or are expecting I would love to hear about your experience with maternity fashion, leave me a comment or drop me an email at fuschiasequins@gmail.com

Sunday’s lesson

In my efforts to dedicate some more time to my blog and write about the things that are of interest to me in the world of fashion and beauty, I’ve decided to (try and) upload a fashion look weekly.

This morning, I allowed the bright weather to dictate my outfit choice and I went for something light and in the family of shades of blue. As you’ll know from my previous posts, I’m all for having classic pieces in my wardrobe and that’s what I went for with my look today.

Thanks for reading guys, have a lovely Sunday!
