The Labels I Live In

Pregnancy can be hard.  Uncomfortable.  Heartburn ridden, and swollen.  But that will never be able to negate the fact that we still just want to be fabulous.  With a growing uterus in the way, there are a myriad of maternity options out there to suit any body type.  Yet even with all of these antepartum fashion needs taken into consideration, some girls vehemently decline the maternity motif within their own wardrobes, in search of something more like what they wore before the baby belly.  What’s a modestly expectant girl to do when in need of some sartorial solace for the next 9 months?  These are the labels I have been living in for (almost) 40 weeks, and will continue to don ever after.  That’s the benefit of finding clothing that is not necessarily designated for the pregnant belly brigade;  you can continue to wear them regardless of your maternal state of being.

Rag and Bone and Belly

I love this sweater not pregnant, and I continue to express those sentiments well into my third trimester.  The loose fit allows it to work for both states, pregnant and not, and this skirt I have been able to wear under my belly throughout my maternity days, thankfully.  It really is about just sifting through your wardrobe until you find the pieces that can accommodate the need for more room, so to speak.

Cargo Jacket Maternity

A combination of factors have been impeding on my immediate ability to do new outfit posts, but I hope to remedy that posthaste.  Moving to a new location with unfamiliar territory, I find it difficult to carve out the perfect photo-op spot.  That being said, I schlepped to the far reaches of Long Island and took the opportunity to document my #OOTD.

I have never been one to buy maternity clothing.  I do not love the selection or designs (with a few exceptions to be discussed in a future post), and I find I can make do with a non-maternity wardrobe in almost the same capacity as a maternity specific one.  Jackets are a great way to create a simple outfit from bare basics and take it up a notch.  Assembling a collection of jackets, blazers, and any number of toppers is a great investment in the chicness of your future.  I have worn this particular cargo version many times, and it serves me equally well, both pregnant and not.
