Bump in Bloom

Even though snow is projected in my region in the near future {seriously, it’s April – enough already} I can’t help but get amped up for the options that I have for maternity-wear in the spring. Here are some of my favorite looks:


I know, I know. A maxi dress for a pregnant gal? Isn’t that one step off of the mumu, which we women have worked so hard to get away from in maternity clothing? That’s why you add a belt! Belts give the illusion of a waist {even when one is non-existent} and adding the cardigan will add some dimension to an otherwise curve-reducing style of dress.


I’m a huge fan of black and white – throughout the spring and summer. There’s something so fresh, crisp, and classic about these colors paired together. And even though white can be a scary thought to a woman whose hips and rear aren’t getting any smaller, Wearing a long, flowy black top that at least partially covers those “problem” areas will ensure that you’re comfortable and confident in this look.

I’m a big fan of owning a casual-chic outfit that you can easily put together and throw on without too much thought or effort. This look is great for many different “days out”: running errands, day trips to the zoo or aquarium, a picnic lunch with the one you love – the possibilities are endless!

Would you rock any of these looks?
