As many of us have traded heels for flats these days, I wanted to show a few recent outfits that are very comfortable but still feel pulled-together! Everything here is actually not maternity sizing, but happens to be bump friendly even in my 3rd. trimester. These also feature a few sale pieces that I showed last month, mixed and matched for cooler weather outfits as we head into Fall.
1. Chic Mixed Knits
For meetings, a coffee date, or whenever you want to feel a little more sophisticated! On the bottom left, showing how I often add a hair elastic to a lightweight sweater or tee for a twist-front look (old styling trick from this post). A long trench or knit blazer layered on top always adds instant polish for me, and a printed shoe helps tie together multiple solid neutral colors. I can’t fit into jeans these days, otherwise that would be a comfortable alternative here instead of my ribbed skirt for a less formal-looking outfit!
This midi trench coat (see my review) was one of my favorite finds earlier this year, and one I’d recommend in both tan and black. It is definitely a long length, draped jacket, so it’s not for someone looking for a short trench. I initially planned on hemming it 2″ but over time have really grown to like the longer length!
For a shorter length drapey trench coat, check out this A+F one in multiple colors!
2. Playful print + platforms
For this in-between Summer to Fall weather, I mixed fabric weights and textures here with a soft, fluffier sweater, a more airy pleated chiffon skirt, and leather espadrilles.
3. Monochrome mom-on-the-go
A very basic outfit, but one that you’re most likely to find me in these days for comfort and practicality! A knee-length dress + duster cardigan creates clean, long lines, and keeping it in the same color family helps it look streamlined. Typically I’d be wearing my staple non-maternity leith ruched dress, but just outgrew it during these last few weeks of pregnancy!
I really wanted a white bump-friendly ruched dress, and while this one isn’t perfect, I’ve been wearing it a ton. I would’ve preferred a better quality cotton material and you do need skin-toned undergarments or shapewear since the white is on the sheer side. I’m always wearing my maternity support shorts anyways which works as a good under layer here. What I DO like about this dress is that the overall fit is pretty good on a shorter frame, including shoulder straps that aren’t too long and neckline not too low – two issues I have with many non-petite tank dresses!
