I have to admit, though I knew in my mind that HATCH Collection’s pieces were intended for pregnancy and postpartum wear, I had my doubts. But now that I’m on the other side of things—with a happy, chubby 4-month-old in my arms—I am glad to say that these pieces are absolutely still wardrobe staples for me!
Over the summer during my pregnancy I shared how I styled four different items: The Bateau Top, The Meadow Dress, The Lily Dress and The Mia Dress. Since it’s now winter, I’ve put the summery dresses away for awhile and today am sharing how I’ve been wearing The Bateau Top and The Mia Dress.
THE BATEAU TOP / Whenever I wear this top, I’m always stopped and asked, Where did you get that?!? It really is the perfect shirt. It’s just the right amount of slouchy and fitted, has a feminine boat neck neckline, and in black and white stripe it never goes out of style. I wear mine most often with destroyed denim and ankle boots (as shown) or boyfriend jeans and simple flats.
THE MIA DRESS / I have always been obsessed with the way this dress flows. When pregnant, it accentuated my bump in the best way. And now that I have a waist again, its slightly high-low cut highlights my legs while keeping things classy in the back. I styled it with a denim jacket, my gorgeous new canvas and leather diaper bag and leopard ankle boots for a bit of height and sass. For chillier (California) days, I’d also throw on a scarf for a bit more warmth.
