Finding my Maternity Style

Friday, August 24, 2018

I haven't shared a great deal about my pregnancy as to be honest, I've felt a bit rubbish throughout. I've had a fairly uncomplicated pregnancy to be fair however, my changing shape and size has definitely knocked me a little.

Now I'm well into my third trimester I've been living in the same pair of New Look Maternity Jeans and black vests with a massive tubigrip 'bump band' everyday. My feet have swollen so much that I've had to retire my beloved Dr. Marten boots and stick to loose trainers. 
If I'm honest I've been a bit lazy and just thrown on whatever fitted until now but there is a huge range of nice, fashionable, maternity clothing out there at the moment.
The Maternity clothing range from Boohoo has some lovely pieces. I like to wear skater style and tea dresses so when I saw the Maternity Star Wrap Tea Dress I knew it was just the thing to make me feel more like myself. I teamed this with a pair of black capri leggings and sadly my boring, trainers. In non pregnant life I'd wear a nice pair of ankle boots with it. It's such a versatile dress as it could easily be dressed up to wear for a night out or worn as a day dress. The cut means that although its very flattering on my ever growing bump, I'll still be able to wear it afterwards.

As the weather is getting a little cooler here in Scotland, but not cool enough for a jacket, I picked a Black Soft Knit Hooded Cardigan. It's not from the Maternity range but I went up one from my usual size. It's lovely and soft and goes with everything. I love a cosy oversized knit and can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this.

After kitting myself out with some new clothes, next up was to tackle my makeup. I've been so tired recently that putting makeup on has been an effort but when I got my hands on the new Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow palette from Fenty Beauty I knew I had to give it a go. I adore all of the shades in this palette, especially the oranges and azure blue. I've also been using a lot of IT Cosmetics recently, rather than a full foundation I've been using the IT Cosmetics CC Cream. I love that it feels light on my skin but still covers the multitude of bags under my eyes.

I've realised that just because I'm pregnant doesn't mean that I have to compromise my own sense of style and just taking a little extra time for me has helped me feel a little better. I'll definitely now be trying to take more time to make myself feel like myself until the baby comes along. (because I'm highly unlikely to have time afterwards).

Do you have any maternity style tips or recommendations? I'd love to hear them, let me know in the comments or send me a message on social media!
