My Favorite Maternity Workout Leggings

Maternity clothing has been my number one nemesis. It is all SO unattractive. I have heard how lucky women are “these days” to have so many clothing options, however, I am still not 100% pleased. Unless you like pattern it can be very  hard to find pieces that you love and actually want to wear. However, the one item I have found that I have been pleasantly surprised by are workout leggings. I will say, I tried for a long time to find an inexpensive pair and wound up very disappointed. I purchased these from Gap and want to warn you to not even waste your money! They didn’t hold their shape, became lose after one wear and were see-through. For just a bit more money I found the legging of my maternity dreams!

These Ingrid and Isabel leggings (also in a long version here) are amazing. Not only do they support your belly but they hold their shape, feel secure, and have a nice modern shape. I purchased one pair and literally wore them everyday. I am now the proud owner of THREE pairs. They are a tad more of an investment but for the amount of wear you get out of them and with the added confidence they give you, I promise they are worth it! Let’s face it, pregnancy can feel as though you have completely lost control of your body, so why not spend a little more to feel a lot better!!!



The Dress That Never Ages

I can’t believe it but these photos were taken two years ago while vacationing in Puglia, Italy! What I can’t believe even more, I am still wearing this Felicity & Coco dress.  When I purchased it I knew it would be a favorite of mine – it is simple, timeless, light, and wearable. What I didn’t expect, to be wearing it two years later while pregnant. I really can’t explain the diversity of this dress! It comes in a few colors (my mom and sister-in-law have all purchased it) and is easily dressed up with simple heels or down with strappy sandals. Oh, and did I mention how comfortable it is? Comfortable clothing has always been important to me but it is now more than ever. Whether you are expecting a child, heading on a vacation, or you just want the perfect spring/summer/fall dress this dress (under $90) won’t let you down!

A Wardrobe Staple: The Trench

There are a few items that I never travel without nor not have in my closet. One of these items is a classic trench coat. This came to my mind the other day when I was helping my mom pack for Paris and realized she didn’t have one. Not only do they keep you dry, but they are a classic staple to any outfit. I will wear mine when I want an extra layer but not a heavy coat, be it raining or sunny. I wore mine all over South Africa (seen above). When packing they are a no-brainer.

I have rounded up a few of my favorites from around the web and all are under $150! You can scroll through the selection and click on any of the photos to shop.
