Pregnancy Chic

Hello Bellas,

This last week I had the pleasure of spending some
severely needed quality time with my sister.

Due to multiple requests and having my beautiful
 [7 month pregnant] sister on hand
I was inspired to do a

'How To'
{{ Pregnancy Chic}}

The how to's for the every-day-fashionista who happens to
be pregnant. You may be on your first or you may be juggling
another munchkin similar to this one

My 1 & 1/2 year old nephew and joy of my life.

This beautiful bella is my sister.

Not only have I had the joy of helping my sister in finding
flattering looks during her pregnancy...

I have also consulted numerous pregnant women that have
visited a local boutique that I work at.

During these experiences I have picked up a few

{How To's}

1. long hair is best.
Many woman would like to cut their hair because it's easier
but truth be told, most woman become rounder in the face
and long hair compliments this face shape best.
Also, use moisturizing treatments, your hormones
may cause some dryness to the hair.

2. Choose a fitted top that outlines the growing bump.
By accentuating the bump you are proclaiming that you
are pregnant, not frumpy and that you ARE pregnant.

3. Choose a loose fitting jacket.
This will create a slender look for the arms and even
if the arms have grown it will appear that they are smaller.

4. Choose nicely fitting jeans.
These jeans don't need to be skinny but they should
show that your legs are smaller than your top half.

5. Take care of your skin.
Even if you don't prefer makeup, try a light foundation,
concealer, blush, and mascara. And don't forget to MOISTURIZE-
your skin is stretching around the belly so invest in quality Shea butter.

6. Lastly, accessorize.
Don't worry so much about accumulating piles of maternity clothing.
You will need a few basics that create a flattering appearance.

However, simple is best when you can accessorize. Long
necklaces are a great find because they split the middle line of the
body and breakup a wider appearance.

These tips should help in giving the appearance of a slim
and fit mom that is taking care of herself and her baby on the way.

I hope this helps you now or in the future bella!

  3. I just have one nephew, but I have 3 little girl cousins who are practically more like nieces to me:-) I'm sure you guys are excited to meet the new bubba! xoxo

  4. Great pictures! Tell your sister I say Hi. She looks great. Where did she get her jacket in the top pictures? I love it and have been looking for one similar to hers. Great post, I would love to hear what basics you would recommend to someone and which shea butter you pass onto expectant moms ; )
