A couple of months ago I wrote about the benefits of having a “daily uniform.” Recently, a friend asked me whether I have a maternity-style daily uniform now that I’m with wee babe again.
Would you like to see it?
As you can see, it’s nothing special but it fits my daily uniform guidelines (simple, comfortable, easy to wash, and makes me smile) so I’m a happy, happy camper.
If you’d like a few more details about the pieces in my collage, read on for a few quick notes…
First off, the skirt and the sweater come from Gap Maternity which is hands-down my favorite maternity retailer. The quality is good, there are almost always flattering pieces to be found, and the clothes don’t cost an arm and a leg.
I like the skirt because it’s made out of soft, forgiving jersey knit and is super comfortable. If I’m reaching for my daily uniform it’s probably because I’m sleep-deprived, sick, or emotionally unstable so comfort is a must.
Not pictured, but in heavy rotation, is my Bella Band. It is an absolute lifesaver and I am convinced that every woman should own one. Want more proof that it is a must-have? Just read the 200+ positive customer reviews over on Amazon.
Now for a confession: I don’t actually own the above sweater. It’s much like my favorite maternity sweater (which I bought years and years ago) so I used it as a stand-in. Isn’t the color gorgeous? When I’m having a daily uniform kind of day I like to add a splash of color to my outfit. It usually helps to lift my spirits.
I chose the earrings because they are simple, match the sweater (love!), and minimize the risk of small hands grabbing hold and torturing my earlobes (win!).
Leggings. I’m a leggings kind of girl. I love them and consider any casual outfit that cannot be improved by a pair of leggings highly suspect. This is even more true when I’m pregnant. (If I happen to encounter chilly weather I simply swap them out for a pair of tights.)
As always, my Mary Janes are a staple. But that’s just me. The nice thing about this outfit is that it could be paired with any number of styles of shoe. Just pick your favorite!
And last but not least, the L. Erickson headband. I’ve written about LE products before but for those who missed my reviews, here are my thoughts in a nutshell: they’re not cheap but they are super cute, unbelievably comfortable, and last forever! Seriously – I’ve had mine for over a decade.
So, that’s how I rock a daily uniform, maternity-style. It’s almost time for me to add to my maternity wardrobe so if you have a favorite piece (or outfit) I’d love love love to hear about it!
Take care, girls!
P.S. Many thanks to all you lovely ladies who offered blogging ideas last week. I now have a lovely little list o’ inspiration. You girls are the best. Hopefully this post will help some of you who were looking for maternity fashion ideas.
