It’s frustrating to buy maternity clothes when you only wear them for about five months… if that. My first pregnancy I bought all the pregnancy clothes. I thought I would need them, but in reality, I didn’t wear all of them that often. With my second pregnancy, I bought a few essentials but didn’t purchase many. Partly it was because I had some left over from the first, but also because I was pregnant during the winter months (cue all the big comfy sweaters).

One thing I tried to do with this pregnancy was find maternity clothes that I could also wear post-pregnancy. A few things didn’t quite fit right after I lost that big old bump, but one of my favorite items was a long sleeved cold shoulder pink ruffle top from PinkBlush. It fit perfectly during pregnancy and now that my daughter is here and the bump is gone, it still fits just great.

Although this top is currently out of stock, I’ve linked a similar option to check out, and it’s only $24. Happy shopping!

Maternity Dress from Beachcoco

When you are 8 months pregnant you really need your maternity clothes to pull through for you. That’s why when it comes to this new dress from Beachcoco I am absolutely in love.

This form-fitting dress is long enough to where I’m not constantly hiking it down, and it is so soft and comfortable for this growing belly. I love that it has long sleeves, and is the perfect dress for fall or winter. This is definitely going to be my go-to dress for the upcoming holidays!

Comfy and Ready for Fall

Sweater: TJMaxx | Sleeveless Cardigan: Dresslily | Jeans: Nordstrom | Boots: Target

This is the hard transition when my brain is into everything fall, but the weather is not. The mornings here in New York start off slightly chilly, but it’s usually a comfortable 70 degrees by the end of the day. That is why I love outfits that can suit both temperatures, without making me freeze or sweat.

I am currently crushing on sleeveless knit cardigans like this one from Dresslily. It is so thick and soft for these fall temps, but can still keep me comfortable if it heats up. It is out of stock right now, but I will keep you posted when it comes back in.

Right now at Dresslily you can use the code BRITTA to get 12% off over $25. They have tons of other adorable tops and cardigans that are perfect for this transition from summer to fall.

Enjoy your fall weather, friends!

My Favorite Non-Maternity Sweater for Maternity Wear

Sweater: DressLily Leggings: Nordstrom

This time of year makes me want all the comfy, cozy sweaters to start wearing during the fall and winter months. Over the last few years, I have definitely accumulated a fair amount of sweaters that I can pull out and wear in a moments notice. The only problem with this fall season is that most of those sweaters don’t extend over that growing bump that seems to be protruding more and more each day.

I decided I wanted to try finding some comfortable sweaters that I could wear while pregnant, but also continue to wear over the years. Big baggy sweaters it is!

I recently found the cutest heathered lace patchwork sweater that fits so well from Dresslily. It goes right over my bump, but will definitely still be wearable next fall when I’m (hopefully) back to my regular weight. It is the perfect sweater to wear with leggings, which is exactly what this pregnant mama needs. My favorite part is the adorable lace patchwork along the bottom.

Look for more comfortable, adorable finds from DressLily in the future!

The Perfect Maternity Top to Transition from Summer to Fall

My favorite season has always been autumn. When the slightest hint of fall comes around you can bet that I will unpack my cooler weather clothes, pull out my fall scented candles, and grab a pumpkin spice latte at the nearest coffee shop ASAP.

The only problem is that sometimes it’s a little too warm to pull out the fall clothes right away. This is when I pull out my transition pieces from summer and fall and they are just as fun to wear as those comfy sweaters.

My recent favorite find is this adorable Ivory Floral Chiffon Ruffle Trim Maternity Blouse from PinkBlush. This is the absolute perfect top to begin wearing during this fall weather when the days are not quite cool enough for sweaters but still slightly warm outside.

It still has a summer floral feel but has beautiful long chiffon sleeves which are perfect for autumn. This shirt is adorable and is so comfortable to wear. I especially love the cinched sleeves and the ruffle trim front that give it a unique look.

This is definitely a top that I will be continuing to wear after pregnancy. Check out so many more adorable maternity tops from PinkBlush that will lead you right from summer to fall.
