Maternity Outfit Post: 19 WeeksLauren Hartmann
Last week at 19 weeks marks the first time my baby bump made an appearance! It still looks a little too much like a beer belly to warrant wearing anything truly fitted, but I’m finding creative ways around it – Like this top from Urban Outfitters. My husband actually picked it out for me for my birthday (he’s a pretty good chooser) and I LOVE it! It’s the perfect top to wear all throughout pregnancy and it looks cute loose OR belted. I highly recommend getting one. Also I’m learning that belts are key for showcasing an early baby bump. I wore one to work last week and I had three people congratulate me on my pregnancy. Yay for starting to look more like I’m pregnant and less like I’m fat! Oh…and a last piece of maternity fashion advice: Rock those heels for as long as you can! Nothing makes me feel less frumpy than a pair of heels. It’s a great way to instantly elevate a simple look and for some reason people seem to be super impressed when they see a pregnant lady wearing heels, but maybe that’s just a Portland thing where it’s kind of impressive to see anyone wearing heels.
