For All The Mommies To Be

Let me start this post by saying that I am not one of the Mommies To Be. :) I received a request for some sets for the expectant mothers who still want to remain stylish during their pregnancy and feel good about themselves as their bodies change and grow larger.

I find it most beneficial to stick with a basic/neutral color scheme when considering maternity clothing and then accessorize with fabulous scarves, jewelry, handbags, and shoes. This way you won't have to make a huge investment in maternity clothes and you can still wear the accessories long after you lose the *baby weight*. It is also possible to simply purchase larger sizes of non-maternity clothing to wear, but I personally prefer actual maternity clothing since it is designed specifically for an expectant mother's changing figure. There are numerous clothing lines that have fabulous maternity clothing that is affordable such as Old Navy, Liz Lange for Target, and Gap...even Spanx has a maternity collection. :)

Here are a few sets I styled for the Mommy To Be:

Mommy To Be by FFM featuring Old Navy
Gap has a similar striped shirt available in their Maternity section right now in different colors (not blue), as well as solids. Click Here for the link.

Old Navy used to sell an adorable Maternity Jacket, but I don't see it on their website right now. You can purchase a larger size non-maternity jacket in this case that would work just fine.


Congratulations to all you expecting mommies! What an exciting time in your life! God Bless You! :)

  10. Hi,

    You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started http://www.bellybundles.com. We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.

    Thanks,
