BUMP STYLE :: Recap

Maternity Style Inspiration via @natalieborton

I can’t believe it’s the week of my due date and I’ll be meeting Jack any day now, really. Sure, he’ll probably be late, but a girl can dream, right? While most of the time this year has passed at a snail’s pace, I have to say that this third trimester has totally flown by, leaving me in disbelief that I’m so close to having my little guy in my arms! I’m so grateful I’ve had the opportunity to be pregnant, and also so relieved that it’s only a matter of days before I can put it behind me and meet Jack face to face.

Aside from all of the emotional challenges pregnancy presents, this year was filled with style challenges—hence, the Bump Style series. I honestly do not know what I was thinking when I decided to regularly have my photo taken during this pregnancy and share it with the world, but I sure am glad I made that crazy choice. Getting dressed while pregnant is no easy task, and my hope is that the series provided you with inspiration for your bump (or future bump) when you’re standing in the closet wishing you could get away with wearing your pajamas out in public.

Below is a recap of my pregnancy style posts, with a link to each post that you can click to see more of the look and find out where to buy the items. Thanks for riding along on this pregnancy style journey with me! Now that I’m at the end, I can’t wait to get back to non-maternity clothes :)

    You look gorgeous pregnant and made it look so glamorous.
    On a totally random note I’ve been watching a few what I eat in a day videos on YouTube. I thinking it would be great to see a what I eat in a day post from you in the future. You seem to have a well balanced vegetarian diet which really interests me. It would also be fun to see while you’re a new mom. I’m sure many of us will be a able to relate to trying to find time to eat as a mom. Just an idea!
    Good with your labor and your new baby. :)
