Maternity Style – Summer to Fall

23 Aug

Being pregnant brings a whole new challenge to getting dressed every day.
You buy some key maternity pieces to get you though, but the trick is to make
parts of your old wardrobe work double duty.

Not all ok honestly most won’t of your pre-pregnancy items will make
the cut, but thanks to things like Bella Bands and the comfort of wedge
heels, you can manage to feel and look somewhat like your former self
(instead of the hog beast that you feel like the rest of the time).

Immediately below is my Polyvore interpretation of this outfit (I love this
blogger – she has a great style for maternity and post-maternity looks) and
below is me at 29 weeks.

Happy Friday. Have some wine for me.

So, my good friend Cassie has been drooling over this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag for some time now (ok – maybe it’s only been a few days – but for someone who REALLY wants something, a few days can be a lifetime).
Always being the enabler, I helped her justify several reasons why this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag is for her. It’s colorful, useable, washable, and very summery.
I even went onto Polyvore and built her an outfit around this bag, which is what you see above. Not like she needs to be sold on it, but it’s fun to bring the bag to life.
Clearly, the outfit I built is for a woman who is expecting, like my friend. So our top reason for buying this bag is how useable it will be for her as a chic diaper bag. And, in the meantime, as a chic handbag for a girls’ getaway weekend this summer to Santa Barbara.
Might as well break the purse in before the baby arrives.
Anyone? Bueller?
