Happy FRIDAY, love bugs!!! I am so excited the weekend is finally here! We are heading back home to celebrate lots of birthdays this weekend, and one of them happens to be my favorite guy in the whole world! So, along with celebrating Todd’s birthday, we will also be celebrating my niece and nephew’s birthday, along with one of Todd’s good friends who is turning 40. I have a feeling this preggo mama is going to need a lot of coffee all weekend long!
And speaking of pregnancy, I did a lot of searching and a lot of review reading this week. I found (for myself) and all my other pregnant mamas out there the top 10 essential maternity pieces! Since this isn’t my first rodeo, I knew exactly what type of pieces I was looking for, but I had to do a little digging since there are so many new maternity fashion brands these days.
As most of you have probably seen, I am trying to keep my maternity pieces to a minimum and wear mostly non-maternity, but with a rapidly growing bump there are just certain pieces I need to have in my closet for practicability and comfort. And not to worry, I made sure the quality and the prices are both great so you don’t have to worry about these pieces falling apart or breaking the bank 🙂
You guys know I’m a fan of Zella leggings, and these maternity leggings are no exception. And while I haven’t personally tried this brand in maternity, I love it for the regular pieces and these leggings
had awesome reviews and are a little cheaper.
This dress is not only super cute, but it’s also really functional and one that you would get a lot of use out of while pregnant and after baby while nursing.
This set looks so comfy and would be perfect for sleeping / lounging at home. Plus, it would be a great addition to your hospital bag after you deliver. I must admit, I am very partial to this set
with the matching baby gown and hat for the hospital.
This dress is a pregnancy must have! I LOVE this brand and the built-in bra alone makes me want to order it in every color. It’s also the perfect piece for nursing and layering to get you through the cooler months. This brand also makes this awesome maternity
maxi dress as well!
Same brand as above, and hands down, the best maternity tanks. And at $18 a pop, you need to go ahead and grab one in all four basic colors.
Another set of great basic tees that are perfect for layering or just wearing alone. They have 5 star reviews and $36 for three tops is a total steal.
If you’re pregnant, do yourself a favor and order these right now! And if you prefer the high-waist over the bump undies, then I highly recommend these
I have these extenders in the white and the black, and I cannot say enough great things about them. They will be your saving grace when you still want to wear your old jeans and pants, but can’t get them buttoned anymore.
Every pregnant mama needs one good pair of maternity jeans and these seem to be the ones! And I’m really loving that they aren’t too expensive, but still seem to have the quality. I’ve ordered three different styles from this brand that will be arriving next week so I’ll make sure to share my thoughts on them when they arrive.
Hands down the most comfortable flats ever! Everyone needs a pair of these for fall and winter, and heck, considering they’re only $17, you might want to grab them in a few colors!
