Oh, lookie here! It’s something you’ve never really seen from me before. A legit fashion post (ha)! Okay, I’ll admit here that I am shooting these photos myself with a tripod and a remote control outside along the back brick of our house. Mama’s gotta do this during nap time, and Greg is not exactly someone I’d describe as a gifted photographer.
Anyway, ASOS graciously sent me some beautiful maternity clothes to get me through the last month or so of my pregnancy. I’ve decided I would have some fun with it and come up with a few third trimester maternity style posts. I’m definitely no seasoned fashionista, but I do love fashion and having fun with my clothes. I’m at the stage where nothing is fitting quite right and it’s really hot outside. Feeling comfortable, yet still put together, is a priority for me. Most days you’ll catch me in yoga pants I bought two sizes up, sports bras, and long tank tops. But if we’ve got somewhere to go, if I’m meeting friends, or going out to eat, I’ll step it up a notch.

For me, I really like this look because we’re taking a basic look of striped shirt, shorts, and sneakers and giving it a twist. The shirt is a basic staple but with fun and unexpected split shoulders (I’m wearing them up today). I also have had a lot of fun layering long and short necklaces to give extra interest. When your fashion choices are pretty limited and you can’t fit in most of your closet, you experiment with accessories. Like I said, no fashion expert here, but it makes me feel good and it’s comfortable.
Mamas, what fashion pieces got you through your third trimester?
