24 Weeks & Some Creative Bump Styling

I'm 24 weeks along which means that it is possible for my baby to survive outside of the womb... not that I want him to come any time soon, but it is nice knowing that I've at least made it this far. I'm finally feeling better from the nauseousness that has plagued me, and I have a few weeks left before I enter the huge and uncomfortable third trimester. Oh! And the longest cold of my life is finally gone. Life is looking up, just in time for the new year. Hopefully this is a good omen for 2015? I'm going with yes, yes it is.

I've been getting more experimental with my wardrobe lately. As my belly grows I have to increase my creative efforts to make my normal, non-maternity clothes work. In this case I paired a striped shirt with a black maxi skirt and a skinny belt.  This combination of separate pieces creates the illusion of a flattering maternity dress. I'm all about comfort these days so the fact that this outfit is nice and stretchy is only icing on the cake. Also, am I the only one who thinks that a floppy hat makes everything better? I'm really loving this style, and I feel like it adds a lot to any ensemble.

What are some ways you have made non-maternity clothes work for pregnancy (whether now or in the past)? I'm definitely open to new ideas.


  1. Autumn, do you want to dress me :D? haha But really, you are stunning!!!

  2. You look gorgeous! With my first pregnancy most of my clothes were non-maternity; I usually just sized up, got anything stretchy, and chose empire waists and long shirts to make things work. It's definitely a challenge, though!
