I am only blogging about this today, but this vintage sweater duster coat saved me last winter during my pregnancy. I wore it to Fashion Week, to pick the kids up from school, grocery store errands. Everywhere. I fell in fashion love. It was everything I wanted in cold-weather wear, and coincidentally, everything I needed. It kept me so warm but gave me that shot of sartorial satisfaction we sometimes lose out on during the winter months. I continue to hunt down similar pieces in the hopes that i can carry on donning these winter wonders, and keep my seasonal depression at bay. I have been using Etsy as a main source for sweater coats (and many other pieces) as I posted in the past, which you can try along with the traditional brick and mortar vintage shops.
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.
