As #babyNegin continues to grow (I was 31 weeks when these photos were taken), I’m finding myself gravitating back to dresses, for ease and comfort. Pre-pregnancy, I’ve always been more drawn to wearing dresses and lately it’s been the same decision.

Dresses paired with tights, when needed, allow me to stay comfortable without feeling like I’m stuffed into a pair of pants, and at times during this pregnancy it seems like the most logical thing for me. When I found this mock neck swing dress (now on sale!) from Pink Blush and I fell in love with how soft and effortless it was to wear. The cut makes it easy to dress up or down with a simple switch of the shoes and accessories.

Overall Obsession

When I began my hunt for maternity clothing I became obsessed with finding a pair of overalls. Something easy and comfortable that I can add layers to keep warm as the temperatures continue to drop.  It felt like everywhere I shopped, I could find denim overalls, but as soon as I searched for the pregnancy equivalent, there were none.

That was until, I finally hit up one of the few H&M stores that carried their adorable Mama lines (Eaton Centre, Hillcrest and Vaughan Mills) and there they were. My dream pregnancy pant. Skinny through leg but with enough room for my (giant) bump and easily styled with sneakers or heels.

When building out your maternity wardrobe, it’s almost like building a capsule collection of essentials that can take you from baby-bump to post-baby. I felt it was most important to invest in pieces that could take you anywhere, from a business meeting, to a night out with the ladies with switching up your accessories and shoes.

It became clear during the planning stages of my wardrobe, that a “little black dress” would be a must-have, for the first time in my life. My closet is pretty full, so when most women would turn to a LBD for an easy fix for a wardrobe solution, I have always embraced colours and prints. But for my limited pregnancy collection, it was important to be practical with my purchases, ensuring that I would have the right pieces regardless of occasion.

Enter this stunning Isabella Oliver a-line dress from Carry Maternity. The fit flowed perfectly over my growing bump making it easy to wear throughout my pregnancy. I loved the subtle features, like slightly flared bell sleeves and perfect neckline. This effortless dress can be worn dressed up or paired with sneakers to take you anywhere.
