Dressing To Impress While Pregnant In 3 Easy Steps

By Lauren Hartmann |

I am quickly learning that dressing to impress when you’re pregnant is pretty easy.

Basically the rules are this:

1. Don’t wear sweatpants.

2. Throw on an accessory.

3. For extra points, wear heels.

Oh, the heels!  I can’t even begin to tell you how many comments I’ve received from people who are stunned when they see me wearing heels while pregnant.  Just putting in a little bit of effort goes a long way and trying to dress as much like I did pre-pregnancy as I possibly can helps me feel less frumpy, which is always a good thing.

Here are photos of an outfit I wore at 23 weeks!

See them after the jump…

    i haven’t worn heels at all! but my feet have been swollen. i did wedges earlier on, but now it’s just boots and flats. i really do need to step up my game with my pregnancy look, but i’ve been having trouble with it. not only is dressing the belly new to me, but i’m not used to having these giant boobs! i can’t wait for cooler weather so i can layer!

    I’m now on my third pregnancy and I stick with my own saying if you wouldn’t wear it non pregnant then don’t wear it during pregnancy :-)
    Exercise wear can be quite easy as these days most exercise tops and 3/4 pants can stretch (if not waisted) and take you through most of your pregnancy
