Ladies, at 37 weeks pregnant and with Christmas and New Years Eve looming I've really been struggling with the idea of shopping for maternity looks that I will only wear once. After spending the last few weeks in my leggings and Ugg boots I knew that I wanted to do something special for the holidays. Come on, the reality is that in a couple of weeks I will be covered in baby puke and there definitely won't be any glam in sight. So instead of investing in maternity pieces that I will probably never wear again I decided to pull together some plus size options that will work this year and next once the bump is gone. And of course because this girl is on a budget, a special shutout goes out to my blogger sister La Pecosa Preciosa for letting me raid her closet for these looks.
The swing style is perfect for moms to be. This dress style has plenty of room for your growing belly but still show off your curves. For extra bump action don't be afraid to belt it!
I really enjoyed wearing jumpsuits and rompers throughout my pregnancy. They are seriously so comfy and effortless. This is my look for tonight and I love that it is stretchy and glamorous while being low fuss.
The wrap dress is the go-to item for a lot of plus size women so the odds that you already have a great wrap style dress in your house is high. I love that this style hugs my belly but also pumps up the sexy factor by showing off the girls. Yup, I think I found my New Years Eve look!
So my lovelies, there you have it. Dressing your bump doesn't necessarily mean a visit to the maternity store. Don't let yourself be limited by what is and isn't available. Shop your closet, shop a friend's or shop the amazing clearance deals you know stores will be launching this week. Most importantly shop things you love now and will love past your pregnancy. Stay tuned to my Instagram Stories this week as I will be highlighting more non-maternity options perfect for that beautiful belly.
