Stylin' the Baby Bump
Pregnancy is a real blessing. It's an amazing journey for a woman's body and I feel pretty blessed to be carrying a healthy and active little girl for my second time around the baby block.

2. Big bulky tunic sweaters paired with leggings and boots. I have a couple tunics and they aren't even maternity tops, but they work great since they're pretty roomy. And leggings are awesome, because they're stretchy and feel like your old pair of comfy yoga pants.

3. Dresses and flowy shirts with detail around the collar. This draws attention to not just your beautiful baby belly, but also that glowing look in your skin that says "I'm having a baby!" Again, dresses (like the one below and the one I'm wearing above) can also be paired with leggings during the winter months or with a jean jacket or colorful cropped jacket for a more casual look.
4. Skinny jeans, tanks and jackets. These are three simple pieces I would highly recommend including in your maternity wardrobe, just for the mere versatility aspect. And the jackets do not need to be maternity tops, in fact, none of mine are. But then again they aren't exactly the kind of jackets that can be buttoned up. And skinny jeans aren't your enemy, as long as you use a belly band you can still wear your skinny jeans during the early months of your pregnancy. They can be paired with boots, flats and even heels. And while I'm not a major wearer of heels, as long as they are comfortable, go for it. Otherwise, don't torture yourself. For my first pregnancy, my feet swelled up so big, that flip flops became my best friend.
