New grey washed out jeans (maternity) from H&M ($40!), oversized black blouse by hanni y that is a staple in my closet (I’ve had it for over a year). Oversized fuzzy grey w/ skulls scarf and of course my trusty black leather jacket both from Zara. Boots from Fiorentini & Baker.
All that happened here was a new pair of inexpensive maternity jeans from H&M giving new life to some staples in my wardrobe. FYI I’m at 27 weeks here. We didn’t take a side profile pic but trust me there’s a large bump there. That’s why i had the big fuzzy scarf and gloves on, because there’s no way my jacket zips up.
This was one of those days where I had a million things to do and the day started off with prenatal yoga (at Toronto Yoga Mamas) and continued from there. So at the base of it all is my tried, tested, and true lululemon items. I found that early in my second trimester my wunder unders were no longer comfortable around my waist and ended up picking up the Skinny Will Pant. I love love love how as I’ve grown the high waist (which I folded under my belly early in the third trimester) now supports my lower belly as I’ve increased in size. I wear the waistband all the way up and have cut out the drawstring (it just adds a strange bulge which no pregnant belly benefits from). And my other go-to is just a basic tank, i thrive on the Cool Racerback (sidenote: I can’t see the Long version of these online but in stores they are often available in black and white in a longer version, these are my preferred length right now because you get a little extra bum coverage).
Layering is the key these days, it’s still cold here and my internal temp is all over the map. So today I tossed a chunky knit sweater from Zadig & Voltaire over top, and my go-to boots are always from Fiorentini & Baker. (They make everything better).
I promise the quality of pics will improve! I don’t have a full length mirror and rely on the hubs for the full length shots – we’re working on it…
I just want to point out again that I have on Zero ‘maternity’ clothing, and I’m just about 24 weeks along here. This took me from yoga to coffee, through errands, home for a nap :), and then dinner with my husband in a trendy restaurant.
So many options for a first post, it seemed inappropriate to talk about anything other than what I wore as MrsContent went live… So this is me at 23 weeks preggo, refusing to wear expensive and/or dowdy maternity clothes. Zara … Continue reading →
