Happy Monday!

Since finding out I was pregnant, I promised myself I would not lose my own personal style. I knew I would start to become pretty uncomfortable as my belly would grow and I really set a goal to put together outfits and looks everyday to continue to feel like myself. Doing this has been pretty simple once I nailed down some staples I have worn and reworn over and over again. It’s really been about finding comfortable staples and mixing and matching with outerwear like vests, cardigans and jackets. Having this sweet belly in the cooler weather has been really fun style wise for me, it’s all about layering and rotation! Here are my tips for fall maternity dressing and scroll down for all of my favorite picks.

Jackets: This one has been easy and a total no-brainer! I have my favorite fall jackets hanging in my closet already and if I have bought any new ones, I know I can wear them after the baby comes too. This one and this one (under $100) are on my radar and this one has been my favorite purchase this fall.

Dusters and cardigans: Pregnant. Woman’s. Savior. Something people don’t mention to you before you get pregnant is that your thighs and booty get bigger. (Unless you are one of those women who don’t seem to gain weight anywhere else but your belly – Are those women real?? #iamnotoneofthosegirls) For me, this weight gain has been pretty uncomfortable. I work hard to stay a certain size while not pregnant, and my growing body has not made me feel, well…sexy. But, dusters and cardigans have saved me. I wear them mostly every day and I feel like they just add to my outfits, plus, they are cozy. Best part, no money wasted, all can be worn post pregnancy too!

Dresses: As of now, I have been able to buy dresses a size or two up, throw on a cardi and call it a day. (And add my fav accessories.) I have found ones made from cotton or spandex/stretch, with rushing and/or midi length are the best. Short dresses just get shorter as I grow, and ones with no stretch or a zipper are impossible. Forever21 has been a life saver. Don’t waste your money on pricey maternity dresses!

Bottoms: Ok, I think if you are to spend money on any maternity piece, it is jeans. If you are preggo in the fall or winter, you need them and you just want to be comfortable. The hair-tie trick can work up until a certain point, but jeans with no stretch at the waist can just make you crazy. My favorites have been these. They are worth every penny. They stay up, have stretch and are super comfy. Other than jeans, I am living in leggings and hanging out in comfy joggers like these, loooove them.

Tops: Confession – I’ve rotated these tanks and tops everyday. You just need a few colors and add a duster, cardi or vest and your look changes. It’s all about rotation ladies!

Three trends that are popping up all over are metallics, velvet, and slip dresses and camis.

I am absolutely loving metallic shoes. They can be incorporated in the most simple outfits to take them up a notch, or added to an already loud look to add texture. I have been dreaming of buying these for so long in white, but when I saw them in silver, the need to have these climbed to the top of my list. Ugh they are amazing! I am picturing them with high waisted jeans and a body suit (post baby, obviously).

Velvet is such a hot fall trend and I am lusting over just it in every shape and form. Jackets, dresses and omg, these. I know, SUCH a splurge… a girl can dream right? The blue velvet booties in the set are under $100, shop them before the sell out, I know I am!

Now, having a basketball belly right now, I am really focusing on purchasing fun accessories and jackets that I can wear through out my pregnancy. Amazing booties, hats, jewelry, bombers, dusters and leather jackets are my go-to. That being said, I can’t exactly jump on board the slip dress trend. Crossing my fingers this trend will last a while. There is something so easy, classic, simple yet sexy about these dresses and camis and being a girl who loves to layer (and is pretty conservative), I love the look of a tee underneath. If I was to buy one today, it would be this one. LOVE!

What about you babes? What are your favorite fall trends?

Here are more of my fall picks:

It is finally here! The Nordstrom Anniversary sale has opened to the public today! The sale opened up to card holders last week but today through August 7, anyone and everyone can take advantage of this sale. What is special about the #nsale is that they markdown fall items so you can stock up on coats and boots for a discount! Shop now, because everything sells out FAST. I had my eye on an amazing suede jacket that sold out before I pulled the trigger. Ugh! (Praying they restock soon!)

I just bought too many things and will report back next week on my looks!

Happy shopping!
