Guest Post: Maternity Fashion…

I love getting post ideas from readers {if you have any email me} I received an email last week
for a post idea, I thought was such a great idea but it was one that I didn’t really know the first
thing about or have ever experienced so I decided to call on the advice of my sister Emily
to write this post because she is an expert in the area.

Maternity Fashion

The topic doesn’t apply to all of you now but either your going to experience it someday, you are
  experiencing it right now or you’ve been there done that. 
For you mommy’s that have been there, done that, when it comes to maternity fashion, if you have any
 advice, great stores or tips leave a comment!
Here we go!


During Pregnancy it can be a challenge to look and feel your best. 

When I first found out I was pregnant I was so excited!! I checked my stomach everyday to see if my
 baby bump had appeared on the scene. One day I noticed that my belly had finally started to pop. 
I knew right then and there that it was time to hit the mall and find cute maternity clothes. This was
 harder than I thought because I not only wanted to find cute, fashionable clothes, but I wanted to find
 clothes that fit my new ever changing body (and that were flattering). I was pregnant in the heat of the
 summer and I am so jealous of all you new, cute prego fashionistas that get to wear the winter clothes!! 
Here are a few simple ideas and tips that can turn you into one hip mama and help you look fabulous
 throughout your entire pregnancy.

Dresses, leggings, and comfy jeans are a must during pregnancy. Add fun accessories, and be
Some of my favorite places to shop for maternity clothes were Gap, F21, and Isabella Oliver.

Sweater- Jcrew, Maxi Dress- Nordstrom
 I found that a lot of the maternity maxi dresses were a little too tent like for me so if you like your
 bump to show then don’t get a maternity maxi dress just go up a size.
Sweater-Jcrew, Dress- Gap Maternity
This was my favorite dress to wear. It seriously fits AMAZING. I loved showing off my bump. If you
 are like me and are proud to show of that bump than this is the dress for you!!!
Shirt- Gap Maternity, Jeans- J Brand Maternity
These are the best maternity jeans EVER!!! I also love these Gap maternity jeans- super comfy and

All of these styles are super easy to convert into wintery looks. Just add a cute cardi, long socks and
 boots, black opaque tights, and a pea coat.


Thanks so much for posting today Em!!

    Your sister is adorable. Great tips too. Skinny belts are great too while prego to accent your upper waist. I agree with jeans, take the time to find a great pair that fits and will grow with your expanding belly and if possible by two pairs. Well worth the money and you’ll get your money’s worth. I have three little ones and won’t be having more but love to see women embrace being pregnant, it’s a beautiful and most memorable moment in our lives. Love your blog!

  9. Thanks for sharing this great information regarding maternity clothes. According to my opinion maternity clothes are specially designed for pregnant women. In maternity clothes pregnant women feel comfortable and stylish.

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
