I discovered that ASOS, an online brand I already loved, had a maternity line. Hurray! They make quality clothes at a great price for all shapes and sizes! It almost makes me wish I was 7 months pregnant right now so I could rock these looks. Almost...my swollen ankle memories aren't that far out of mind yet.
Today, I'm partnering with ASOS to share some of my favorite pieces currently for sale. Stay tuned for the end - we have a giveaway in progress!
Here is what I'm spying and recommending...
Wide-strap maxis: I tried to pull of non-maternity maxis when I was pregnant, but always found that thin straps became a major issue. When you are holding onto some extra weight in the bust, wide straps will make a self-conscious mama feel much more at ease.
Crepe midi-dress: If you don't like clingy fabrics on your bump, crepe is a nice compromise. It hangs and flows beautifully and makes a dress look much more expensive than most maternity dresses in jersey stretch. I would wear this dress to work because of the high neckline and long length to feel completely stylish and appropriate.
Shirt dress: This dress caught my eye because the floral feels very on trend and the sleeves give maximum coverage while still being flirty. It strikes me as very vintage inspired.
Long sleeve tees: There is little more timeless than a long sleeved Breton striped tee. I'm not one to subscribe to the idea of avoiding stripes when pregnant. I find stripes to be a compliment to a pregnant belly. You've got it there for all the world to see - flaunt it!
Leggings: They might seem like the lazy way out, but a quality pair of thick leggings can be a staple in your styling. Long tees and tunics work well with leggings. Basic black is slimming, comfortable and if paired with boots, they are your new favorite pants.
Nursing tanks: I lived in my nursing tanks after my son was born to the point where they felt like they became part of my body. Next time around, I'm running to pick this tank up. The longer length is great for women of average to tall height or just for those looking for a little extra coverage as your body settles back into place post-partum.
My personal style:
Rocker tee: I would wear this shirt this coming weekend if I had it in my size. Rock it, mama.
Distressed maternity skinny jeans: I lived in boots at the end of my pregnancy because of terrible edema. A cool pair of skinnies would get a lot of wear in my house.
Black pencil skirt: Staying work appropriate and stylish is a challenge. This black pencil skirt could be paired with any variety of blouses for office attire. It is on my list for #2!
