I really feel like I need to do a bump update soon because this pregnancy has gone from “I feel great!” to “I’m getting so uncomfortable!” I know this was to be expected near the end when the baby is getting bigger and I’m thankful we’ve only got about 7 weeks to go. Tomorrow is her “Sprinkle” and I’m excited to celebrate her with my family and girlfriends. I’ve literally only bought a handful of things this pregnancy (so different from our first!), so it will be very sweet to receive some baby girl outfits and diapers!
Let’s just start with this in-your-face belly shot. If we weren’t before, we’re out proud now! And I’m finally wearing white maternity jeans
! I’ve been wanting some forever so I could indulge in one of my favorite trends of the season – winter white
. I mixed and match some tops and boots from my closet to come up with a few looks you can replicate, probably with things you already have in your closet, but if not, I’ve included maternity & non-maternity options.
I was hesitant to break out the puffer vests since they are pretty small on me now, but they still add that extra layer of warmth and more interest to the outfit. This vest is old from White House/Black Market and I adore the ruffles on it- you don’t see many puffer vests with that detail.
The henley top (maternity
) is really cute and comfy. Love the neckline and they are both on sale
Tan and white
puffer vests are challenging to find, but this style
is cute (looks like it’s more fitted at the waist so it’s slimming), and comes in lots of colors – bonus that it’s on sale for under $30, normally $60
White jeans, boots and a cable knit sweater look great together. I’d put together this combo awhile back, but I’m only now actually getting to wear it. The cable knit sweater is 40% off, under $30 now and comes in 4 colors.
Or the pink one
I left behind. I regretted it, but now that it’s on sale 40% off,
I might have to order it! It was really cozy and came in three other colors.
You can’t go wrong with jeans and a tee and I tried pairing together white jeans, a grey maternity tee
and brown boots here because when I had on black boots at first, they looked too severe. The brown boots add more warmth to the outfit and to tie it together I grabbed my tan reversible tote
and leopard scarf (similar)
. Great weekend outfit for running around and still feeling put together.
This non-maternity tee
has a nice v-neck and rushing on the sides for a flattering look. Size up if you don’t want it as form fitting. It comes in regular and petite too.
I love how a boatneck tee
shows just a glimpse of neck and they look especially good in a 3/4 sleeve. These are new at Nordstrom for $38.
I found 3 pair of brown knee high boots on sale that are a good alternative to my old ones. It’s only just now cold enough in Houston to be able to wear boots daily and we’re loving it!
WINTER WHITE OUTFIT INSPO
I put together two winter white outfit collages for you and I want to wear both of them! White and all those soft caramel colors are so gorgeous this time of year. Instant sophistication while still being comfy! I’m dying over that bag (only $56!
), but the site says it’s backordered until March. 🙁 I’m still interested though because I’ve often received things sooner than the site says. This similar taupe bag
and this cognac one
are both in stock if you can’t wait though!
In Outfit #2, I added in more blush pink and a pop of pizazz with that budget-friendly leopard clutch. The crystal and fringe necklace is 50% off now and how luxe does that scarf look for only $24?! The v-neck sweater has a side-zip detail and also comes in grey and taupe. It’s $42!
