I have said it before and I will say it again for the sake of this blog post, but tight clothing IS. NOT. MY. THING. Never has been, never will be. I never felt confident in tight clothing, which I had accepted. However, when I got pregnant, I knew I was going to have to make some changes to my clothing preferences as I grew bigger. A lot of my girlfriends sung the praises of tighter fitting dresses to help accentuate the bump and while I wasn’t completely turned off by the idea, it still made me wonder if I would be able to feel good wearing tighter pieces.
At the beginning of my pregnancy, I had no idea that all my clothing would become tighter anyway so it was a mute point. I mean, I DID know that I would get bigger but I don’t think you really know how your body is going to change (not just your bump) until you experience it first hand. Turns out, sweater dresses and ribbed dresses, like this one I found at H&M, have definitely become my BFFs. Not only are they extremely easy to wear, but they are much more flattering than I originally thought. I have been obsessed with this one and it’s not even maternity. I bought it on a whim in my usual size medium and it fits like a glove AND has room for Baby Beeb to keep growing. Score!
For this look, I paired it with my new favorite puffer jacket that I picked up before Jonny and I went to NYC for our Baby Moon. I was shocked with how incredible the quality was and how warm it kept me for being only $100. Even though I have always been a neutrals fan, I have definitely been gravitating toward monochrome neutrals this pregnancy because they help me feel like I look chic even though I am constantly feel a bit out of sorts in my ever changing body.
