Making the Most of your Non-Maternity Clothes

July 19, 2016

I may not be pregnant anymore, but that doesn't mean that I can't still share some of my favorite maternity looks.  I had so much fun being creative and coming up with ways to dress my baby bump on a budget.  I've gotten a lot of feedback from friends and readers about how much they liked my maternity posts that I figured why not do a few more maternity posts? 

One thing that I love to share is just how simple it is to take a normal non maternity outfit and turn it into a maternity look. 

Today I thought I would share a few of my favorite striped dresses from my wardrobe.  I kind of have an obsession with stripes, especially if they are black and white.  I just love the bold look that a stripe dress gives.  Here are some ways I wore my non maternity dresses while I was pregnant and also before and after my pregnancy.

This dress I bought at Target a couple years ago. (Similar)  It's very comfortable. It has an elastic waist band in the middle that I usually wear the tie over or put a belt over.  While I was pregnant, I just put the elastic on top of my bump and folded over the extra material. 

This is also a Target dress (Similar).  It's a thicker material, so it was nice to have during the winter months.  I actually liked wearing it with a bump better than without the bump. 

This dress is from Old Navy (Similar).  It fit perfectly through my second trimester.  I always liked wearing a belt above my bump while styling my maternity outfits. 

This dress I bought at H&M while I was pregnant (Similar).  I love it!  This look was one of my favorite maternity looks while I was pregnant.  I wore a long black cardigan with a green statement necklace and black flats. 

I hope you have some new ideas for styling your baby bump!
