Dressing The Bump When You’re 8 Months Pregnant

Dressing the bump when you’re 8 months pregnant is sometimes a challenge.  With my biggest challenge being that I always reach for my old non maternity clothes and try to squeeze my ever growing belly into them knowing that they are not going to fit.

Dressing the bump 8 months pregnant Nine West Tatiana Grey Suede Heels

These grey Nine West heels have been one of my go to pairs during my pregnancy. They are not only stylish but also very comfortable. I am normally a size 8 but sized up to an 8.5.

This velvet dress is one of two velvet clothing items I own. I am always weary of trends.  I never want to spend much money following trends because some trends, once they are out they are out.  As Heidi Klum always says on Project Runway “In fashion, one day you’re in and the next day you’re out.”

I love the burgundy color paired with my vintage lilac coat and grey shoes.  My husband and I were out to dinner and we stumbled upon a cute little vintage store downtown Columbus. They had some amazing pieces, however, this coat caught my eye. I had been coveting a somewhat similar coat from Jcrew but the price of the coat was just too much. The vintage coat only cost me $50. It was a STEAL!

Can we also talk about the revamped coach saddle bag.  I have a vintage coach saddle bag (styled here and here) that I love and have had for a few years now.  It’s definitely a timeless classic.
