I’ve waited years (literally years) to finally pull the trigger on some pieces from Hatch. I own two of their pieces, the Slouch dress (seen here, here’s a similar one) and this off-the-shoulder sweater that I picked up on finale sale for only $60. I feel like that is unheard of, simply because they are a higher end maternity brand, but they always have THE BEST styles. They stay on-trend, but the pieces are meant to be worn before, during, and after pregnancy, so the price tag can be justified with a little cost per wear math. I have my eye on The Paperbag Pant as baby continues to grow and jeans become less of an option.
I’ve officially made it to the six month mark and am rounding out my 26th week of pregnancy. I can’t believe how fast the second trimester has flown by. Stay tuned for a bump update later this week, a round up of my pregnancy must-haves and a few post-pregnancy items that I’m adding to my wishlist!
It’s that time again, my favorite online retailer, Shopbop, is hosting a sale from today through this Friday, 9/29. All you have to do is type the code EOTS17 at checkout to get up to 25% off your purchase.
While most of my closet will sit unused for the next few months as Baby Mack continues to grow, that won’t stop me from adding items to my maternity wardrobe wish list (pretty much everything from Hatch). I recently picked up this off-the-shoulder sweater from their collection (on super sale, around $60 which is almost unheard of) and our baby bag from Herschel, both from Shopbop!
The weather has finally adjusted to my liking which means I can officially wear leggings as pants (because that’s all that fits right now) and the coziest of sweaters. I’ll be swapping any complicated pair of heels or boots for slip-on mules and trendy sneakers. It is getting harder and hard to bend over to put on any type of shoe, so I’ll be looking for anything that makes life just that much easier.
Here is a round up of my other favorite maternity items I’ve added to my wish list:
After a lengthy search for maternity jeans, I finally have a handful of jeans I can safely transition into fall with. Soon, though I’m not trying to wish away summer, I will retire my easy breezy dresses that have worked well with my bump, and start transitioning into a fall wardrobe. This peplum top from Modcloth (which is not maternity, BTW), will be a staple in my closet this fall. With the empire waist, this top was practically made for pregnancy and the beauty is can be worn after too!
Modcloth offers sizing from XXS-4XL so everyone woman can find their perfect fit while staying true to their style or what’s trending. Dressing the bump can be hard, especially when I feel like a lot of maternity clothes are just not that cute or flattering, so finding some non-maternity options that work for a growing bump is a HUGE plus in my book, especially when they can be worn post-baby.
