guest blogger: pregnancy chic

My name is Whitney and my connection to the
BHD girls is through Leah.
We have worked together just over 2 years
but are also close friends.
Also, I am 18 weeks pregnant!
Leah wanted me to talk about pregnancy style.
I will be the first to say that trying to look cute
while gradually growing more and more
shapeless can be a challenge...


My biggest tip is to buy flowing, billowy skirts and tops
from regular stores like Forever 21
and Zara as long as you can,
because who wants to spend
a fortune on maternity clothes?
My pregnancy wardrobe staples include:
- leggings (I had to go up a size)
- tunics, maxi skirts (super comfortable)
- long tank tops (to cover the burgeoning bump)
- A-line dresses.
I've found that layering is key - you never know
when you'll be hit by a wave of hormones
that make you hot or cold,
so I always keep a cardigan or jacket close by.

jacket: j.crew outlet
top: forever 21
skirt: forever 21
necklace: j.crew




If I choose to wear heels, I bring a pair of back-up
sandals or flats along for the ride.
Eventually, heels will be out of the question once I'm
so big that I'm unrecognizable, but for now, a low heel
makes me feel much less frumpy than flats.  :)
These are the "rules" I live by for first and second trimester maternity style.
I'd love to hear style tips from any moms and moms-to-be!
