MORNING LAVENDER MATERNITY-FRIENDLY PIECES

With my bump clearly visible now, the Morning Lavender team and I wanted to share some maternity-friendly pieces from our boutique. It’s hard to believe but I did not buy one single maternity item through my pregnancy. I basically found items in my closet (or at our warehouse) that was bump friendly – looking for items that had stretch and overall just comfortable to wear. I tried on a ton of “maternity” items from other shops but I found maternity wear to be too big on me even with my bump.  I also love the fact that I can wear these pieces again after I give birth.

BABYMOON (HAWAII) RECAP + PREGNANCY UPDATE

It’s hard to believe I am already in the 3rd trimester of my pregnancy! I remember just a year ago I was preparing for our 1st IVF transfer (which failed) and here I am just 9 weeks away from meeting our baby boy! A couple of weeks ago we decided to do our babymoon in beautiful Hawaii. We love the weather, vibe and food of the islands and since I’m pregnant in the winter, Hawaii was an easy choice for our babymoon. We have been several times to Oahu but this would be our first time to Kauai. My agenda for our babymoon was just to RELAX. The holidays were definitely the busiest for us working in retail and we still have so much to do before the baby comes! So we used this opportunity to take in the beauty of the islands and just enjoy some husband & wifey time before we become a family of 3! I can’t wait to take our son here one day and see him experience the ocean for the first time!

3 NON-MATERNITY MATERNITY LOOKS I’M WEARING RIGHT NOW

My bump is hardly big but most of my pants and high waisted jeans don’t fit anymore. My closet has been reduced to the comfiest, stretchiest items I can find. So I decided to do a post on the 3 non-maternity maternity styles I’m wearing right now for Fall at 15 weeks pregnant (2nd trimester). All of these items are non-maternity specific so I can re-wear them again after the baby is born (hopefully). I haven’t done a post like this before (sharing styling tips with multiple outfit ideas) so comment below if you enjoyed this post and want me to do more of them! I can’t wait to update my looks for when my bump gets bigger!
