BUMP STYLE :: Split Back | Thoughts By Natalie

This outfit is admittedly teetering into the fall fashion category, but what can I say, I’m dreaming of fall! When Pink Blush Maternity offered to send me a few pieces to show off along with our giveaway, I immediately was drawn to this lightweight sweater. The split back detail and open weave style make it ideal for San Diego—and since it’s a more flowy style, it’s going to be perfect for those post-baby, soft-belly days I have ahead of me. I paired it with white denim to keep it light, and added a nude pump for a little height, which makes me feel less like a bowling ball and more like a lady.

What I’m Wearing:
Pink Blush Maternity Top (c/o)
Liz Lange for Target Maternity Pants
Merona Heels
J.Crew Necklace / Similar
H&M Sunglasses / Similar

Now, as mentioned above, I’m glad to say that I’m partnering with Pink Blush on a giveaway that’ll be running for the next week—$25 to spend Pink Blush Maternity or Pink Blush, their non-maternity clothing site. Yay! And lucky for you, we’re giving you A LOT of ways to win…

    You look amazing! I’m 36+3 weeks pregnant and I’m definitely finding it hard to pick out outfits every day! Something I would get from Pink Blush Maternity would be the black tribal 3/4 length top:

    I would say I would probably be ordering a couple dresses because well I love dresses and I can’t decide between the two. Love the Navy Blue Scalloped Lace Dress and the Blue Tribal Print Maxi!!

    I really want the beige Aztec print maxi skirt on Pink Blush Maternity. I’m only 15 weeks pregnant, so I’ll be able to wear the skirt the whole way through since I’m due in January and live in San Diego.

    I’m 22 weeks, and totally entering “definitely need maternity pants” stage. So I’d love their black skinny jeans! Or the same sweater you’re wearing here — so cute, and also handy for Seattle weather! :)

    I know its maternity and I am not pregnant but I love the navy blue white striped colorblock maternity cardigan, I could totally rock that.

    That said I love open back knits like the one you are wearing, they are so comfy

    Really excited about even being introduced to Pink Blush. If I won the giveaway, I’d score one of their great dresses…perhaps the black arrow chevron.
