Dressing a Baby Bump

I post about this over on my blog somewhat regularly but I figured since this is the more fashion/craft blog I should do a little post over here as well. I am 34 weeks pregnant as of yesterday and I have loved dressing my growing baby bump over the past few weeks/months. I have enjoyed getting more creative with my outfits and I have really tried to get dressed most days even though it would be so much easier to wear sweats and a baggy t-shirt every day. {I am wearing sweats and a baggy t-shirt right now! Haha.} Anyway, here are some things I have learned about dressing my baby bump:
  • A ton of my normal clothes work just fine covering my belly. 
  • Maternity pants are super comfy if you figure out what kind of waist line you like the best. 
  • I am going to buy a belly band for my next pregnancy. I haven't bought one yet and now I feel like there's no point since I won't be pregnant for much longer. But next time I'll get one from the beginning. 
  • Hair ties around jean buttons are a must! 
  • Maxi skirts and dresses are the way to go! 
  • Skirts and dresses in general are the way to go. So comfy and cool in the hot summer months. 
  • LONG undershirts are a must to cover your mostly unzipped jeans. {I guess that wouldn't apply as much if I had actually bought a belly band though!} 
  • Around the house it doesn't matter what you look like. I normally take off most of my clothes and let my belly hang out. Haha. It's super comfy, Maybe not the most attractive thing but oh well!! 
  • You can usually find good maternity stuff at Goodwill/Savers because people don't wear it for long and often don't keep it around after they have their baby. I found some super cheap and comfy bottoms that I absolutely love! 
Well, that's about it! Now for some pictures of outfits I have come up with in the past few months! 

For all you pregnant ladies out there: What are your tips for dressing your baby bump? Is it something you've enjoyed or something that has been really hard? I hope this helps someone out there! Just six{ish} more weeks til I can get on here and talk about dressing a sweet baby girl! :] Now THAT will be exciting!

{I'll make sure to update this blog before then though!}

Happy Thursday everyone!
