holiday maternity outfit
I have to admit, I’ve been feeling pretty overwhelmed the past few days with work obligations, prepping for this sweet little baby, and finishing up some construction that had been going on in our house. Taking the opportunity to get out and shoot some photos with Natalie Folchi from Folchi Photography significantly improved my mood. I realized how much I really enjoyed working on my blog and stretching myself incredibly thin was really taking its toll on me. So, here I am…happy to be back and producing more content for Mrs. Ladylike! Sorry to start it off on a serious note, but there is a real person behind the blog and sometimes life can get overwhelming, but it’s important to find that thing that makes you happy.
Dressing this bump has been pretty fun so far! Thank you to all of the ladies that posted recommendations on my Instagram for various maternity brands that they loved because that really helped me A LOT. I have kept things neutral when it comes to my maternity style. Today’s look features a double sided wrap that I picked up from Uniqlo when I was in Chicago last month. I wanted to tie the look together and accentuate the bump a bit with this snakeskin belt. It’s an oldie but a goodie that I found at The Limited years ago! These black jeans are maternity and are by a brand called Luxe Essentials Denim. They are probably the softest denim I own AND are pure comfort. These plaid pom pom shoes are my absolute favorite to wear around the holidays! (they are last season J.Crew) They instantly take the neutral palette of this outfit to a festive holiday look that you can wear to Christmas Eve dinner. I’m really looking forward to hosting Christmas Eve dinner this year, so stay tuned for my Instagram stories to see how my feast turned out!
