Dressing the Bump – Baby Shower Outfit Inspiration

By Alyson Brown |

baby shower outfit inspirationMy husband and I are having our baby celebration this weekend!  We opted to go co-ed and invite the boys, so it’s more of a “celebrate with us before the baby arrives” party than a full blown girly baby shower.  We’re serving a spread of tapas style snacks and we’re even setting up a bloody mary bar – complete with all the fixins and a non-alcoholic version for me.  And since the bump will be the full attention of the party, naturally I wanted to get a new outfit for the occasion.  I needed some inspiration so click through to see some baby shower outfits I’ve prepared to get me motivated!

I’ve loved being pregnant and dressing to show off the bump.  I’ve truly embraced bump hugging dresses and tops and I’ve lived in leggings and full panel maternity skinny jeans.  But when it comes to the majority of maternity clothing, it’s been a challenge to find pieces that not only suits my style and make me feel great, but also feel friendly to my wallet!  If you’re looking for the perfect baby shower outfit, I hope my picks help get you inspired!

    I LOVE #2! Though at 7 months along I would be ditching the sweater in a second. I’m always too hot! And the bag in #3 is so simple and gorgeous.
