Non-maternity clothes during pregnancy


As much as I love the practical comfort of maternity-specific clothing, like many of you, I don’t want to spend a fortune on something I’ll only wear a few times (this is only OK for special occasion wear ). I have a few key pieces from the secret fit range at Motherhood Maternity and a pair of leggings and a few dresses ASOS Maternity, but aside from that, I’m still shopping at non-maternity shops as I found that most maternity dresses were way too frumpy  Funnily enough, I’ve effortlessly managed to fall below the 33 item count!

This is my maternity wear haul so far (I doubt I’ll be adding to this since I’m at week 31 today!) —

 

When purchasing non-maternity wear during the second and third trimesters, my biggest tip is to opt for pieces that are longer and looser than you’d normally wear, and with dresses, go for anything stretchy without a fitted waist.

Here are some of my fave non-maternity wear pregnancy outfits:

16 weeks – Dior Diorama1 Silver Sunglasses – Gorman x Atelier Bingo Cruel Summer swing dress – Seed Erika Studded Slide sandals

17 weeks – Kookai top – H&M shorts – Prada Cinema sunglasses

20 Weeks – Kookai off shoulder khaki dress – Clé de Cartier watch

23 Weeks – Kookai dress, Sportsgirl Turquoise Rhinestone necklace – YSL lipstick – Sportsgirl velvet headband

24 weeks – Metalicus navy stripe dress – Mimco Piccadilly silk scarf – Prada White/Black Notebook Cahier bag

29 Weeks – Atmos & Here Paigton Midi dress in maroon stripe – Metalicus knit black cardigan – Kate Spade Breath Of Fresh Air I Need A Vacation clutch
