Blue Uniqlo tights

Uniqlo Heattech tights

Comfort is my main priority and keeping warm is right up there with comfort.  These Heattech tights from Uniqlo are so essential for my cold weather attire.  They really do work at keeping you warmer than ordinary tights.  Plus these are a size small and fit nicely over my bump without having to squeeze into it.

Sometimes I think I need to reconsider what my favorite color is because I find myself wearing blue so often.  Here I wore my Zara shirt dress, from this post, and layered this cashmere sweater that I have had for years over it.  Add navy Uniqlo tights and you have a simple and easy outfit pulled together from your closet.  Simple is key!

Grey & Pink

Pregnancy fashion maternity style

Dressing for work was one of my concerns for this pregnancy.  Luckily I have found that stretchy dresses with either a cardigan or light jacket have been my saving grace.  I have enjoyed showing off the bump and feel great with it.  I really like my bump and it surprises me everyday how great I feel wearing these fitted pieces.  

This simple mock neck high low dress from Saint Grace fit easily over the bump even though it is a size small.  I love the contrast with pink jacket.  Pink and grey are always a great combination.  Comfortable wedges and I am able to head off to work.  My main accessory this pregnancy has been my Jetsetter backpack from Henri Bendel.  I really did not want to carry anything heavy and with this bag, I can just throw it on my back where the weight will be evenly distributed and I still have my hands free.

Favorite Fall Trench & 9th Month update

Maternity style pregnancy fashion

So I found this amazing trench while on my trip to France.  This trench from Mango has become my go to coat for these Fall temperatures.  Its lightweight enough for the warmer than normal Fall days and heavy enough to keep me warm for the entire season.  It is made of a more structured cotton blend so it doesn't wrinkle as easy as other trench coats that I have had in the past.  It is a very simple coat with leather details around the cuffs.    It pairs well with everything including this French Connection dress.  This is not a maternity dress but has enough stretch to fit over the belly thankfully.  The heels were a nice touch but I didn't wear these for long, walking in the 9th month is more painful than I expected, which brings me to my 9th month update.

I am officially in the ninth month and no one seemed to mention the pain that comes with it.  Time is just counting down now, I am excited, nervous, scared, happy all at the same time.  I am not trying to scare anyone definitely but wanted to share my experience.  I have been fortunate actually to have had a rather smooth pregnancy but the pelvic pressure that comes in the 9th month was a big surprise to me.  It does make commuting to work, up and down subway stairs, more difficult than I would like.  I now wear an elastic belt under my belly to help support the weight.  Another symptom I was not aware about is pregnancy carpel tunnel.  My fingers have swollen a bit and feel very stiff.  It is bothersome especially since I work at a keyboard all day but unfortunately there is not much I can do to relieve the pain.  Also, there are these contractions called Braxton Hicks which are practice contractions and do not indicate real labor.  Well, let me tell you, I felt those a few weeks ago and freaked out.  I kept thinking that I had more time and it was too soon but came to realize it wasn't real labor.  Fortunately haven't had those again but at least now I feel more ready.  Don't want to be caught off guard again!  Also, I am generally more tired.  I pretty much slept all day today even though I had a full nights sleep.  One thing for sure, I have been very luck to not have any problems sleeping.  Yes, I wake up occasionally to use the bathroom or with a quick bout of heartburn but I am always able to go back to sleep and I don't have one of those pregnancy pillows.   All in all, everything is going well according to the doctor and that is what I primarily care about.  Its just a few weeks away now and she will be here!!!

Pink Blush Maternity


cute maternity clothes, pregnancy clothes

Not all maternity clothes are the same!  You have your pieces that you know you will only get to wear while you are pregnant and then you have Pink Blush Maternity.  They are the company behind cute maternity clothes!  I received this dress for a review and after trying it on, I wanted to wear it everyday.  This white lace dress expands with my growing belly and it will be something I will still be able to wear afterwards.  I really didn't want to buy maternity clothes because it can be so pricey to buy pieces you will only wear for a few months.  However, Pink Blush offers clothes that will grow with you and will also fit after you give birth.  This is a plus in my book.

In addition, as many know, I love wearing white and this off white dress makes me feel like I am floating.  It is so lightweight and comfortable.  I love the 3/4' length sleeves and the lace overlay is very girly, which is definitely me!  The rounded neck gives a very soft and elegant feel and I am very happy with the length of the dress.  Pink Blush Maternity keeps you stylish and comfortable while pregnant at affordable prices!  I already know I will also find myself wearing this well after I give birth.  Check out my Instagram to enter my Pink Blush Giveaway for a chance to win a $75 gift card!
