Well well well, it’s been a while since we did a Try-On Tuesday! I wanted to share a few things I’ve ordered over the past few months that are still in stock. Several of these items are not maternity, and a few are, so if you’re not pregnant, this could still work for you 🙂
Winter is here for us so I’m feeling alllll the cozy, sweaters and comfy gear as we roll into the holiday season, with a couple dressier looks too as I know you girls are probably gearing up for some fun holiday festivities too.
As always, I’m sharing everything you see here today on Instastories, so head over there if you want to see how the pieces move in video, and of course am linking everything on my LiketoKnow.it profile. For sizing reference, you can read about my pre-pregnancy size here but I’m currently seven and a half months pregnant.
Let’s jump in!
I purchased this cowl turtleneck dress in the late summer, it’s not maternity but the oversized fit is right up my alley and I knew I could grow into it, and love it post pregnancy as well. It’s thick and soft, and the sleeves are quite long. I love the slits on the side, and keep in mind I’m 5’11 so they come rather high on me (wish they didn’t) but the midi-length is something I love.
I actually wore this to work with ankle boots and it looked really good, but keeping it casual here with sneakers. A suede knee high boot with a bit of slouch would also look so good!
I’m wearing a medium which is a great fit. I would say go with your true size. Also comes in black, tan and red.
Another set I purchased in the summer and am finally getting to wear now that the temperatures have dropped. The skirt is no longer available (sorry!), but this one is similar.
These pieces are thick and cozy, very soft and more of a tight-woven knit.
I sized up in the sweater to a large for pregnancy, and honestly shouldn’t have. It’s oversized as is, and a lot of fabric (but I thought I’d need it to wear with maternity jeans with a panel). My usual size medium would have been fine, and if you’re not pregnant, I would say even size down. The skirt is a medium and great for pregnancy, but if I was not pregnant, a small would have been the right pick, I think (so I’d say it runs a tad big/size down in both).
Pregnant and in need of the perfect LBD? Look no further! This adorable, off-shoulder dress is so comfortable, stretchy and perfect for the holidays. Getting dressed up while pregnant isn’t always the easiest, but this dress makes it look that way. I love that the sleeves are double layered and the puff style (very on trend), plus it covers the entire upper arm.
I’m wearing a large in the dress, but should have taken my normal size medium as there is definitely room in the belly/back areas. It also comes in red!
I bought these heels when we were on our babymoon in Marco Island last month and had them delivered to me there, actually–but never ended up wearing them until my baby shower a few weekends ago (heels aren’t really my first choice lately 😉 anymore). These fit true to size, have a lower heel and are pretty comfortable. I can’t wait to rock these in the spring–the square toe is blowing up and it’s going to be huuuuuge next year.
Possibly my favourite outfit of the entire post–lounge wear! This jogger set is sooo cute, and I bought it to bring to the hospital with me when I give birth. I’ve been reading up on what people have packed and found useful, and loose, comfortable clothing is a must, and I thought this was really cute and might be nice if I want to get out of the hospital gown at some point.
The top and pants come as a set and are currently on sale for under $50! The top is long enough even with the bump, and the pants are high waisted with a drawstring. The fabric is cozy but lightweight and I love the elastic bands around the ankles. I will totally be wearing this non-stop between now and then, and after the baby arrives.
I sized up to a large which is a good, loose fit. It feels comfortable and the right size for my pregnant body (pre-pregnancy I would have gone with my true size/medium).
I love this mock neck maternity dress–it’s so cozy and comfortable at the same time. The material is super soft, ribbed with some stretch and the dress is fully lined, which I love for just some overall smoothing. The fabric is almost like a low-pile fuzzy sweater that’s ribbed, and it’s incredibly comfortable. It also comes in black and navy.
You could easily dress this up with OTK boots (did that earlier in the fall for an evening out), or tights and ankle boots. It would work for the office or a casual weekend look with flat boots. I paired with sneakers because honestly, getting down to zip up boots right now is not the most pleasant feeling (haha!) but I also like the look this way too for a casual outing.
I’m wearing a size medium which is my true, pre-pregnancy size and a perfect fit!
Cozy, weekend look! I shared this camo jacket on IG Stories a few weekends ago and then again on my Instagram this past weekend (full outfit post here) and you girls seem to love this parka as much as I do! This is actually a maternity coat, that comes with an extra panel to zip into the front to expand as you grow (not seen here). I knew this coat was maternity, but I didn’t realize it had the extra panel until it arrived in the mail! I was so pleasantly surprised. Right now, without the panel is a perfect fit, but in a few weeks, I’m pretty sure I’ll need the panel.
What I love about this coat, is that it doesn’t look maternity, and the oversized fit and drape is really cool looking, and very on trend. I know I’ll wear this post baby as a regular jacket, which makes it that much more sweet. I went up to a size large, which is roomy but gives my growing bod space all over (which is needed!).
The joggers are maternity and so good. It was actually the reviews that sold me on them. I was looking for something comfortable that wasn’t restrictive like leggings can sometimes be–in the beginning, anything tight on my belly was making me more nauseous on top of already being nauseous, and these are perfect. The over-belly-band is a cotton ribbed fabric that is not restrictive at all, and stretches easily over your shape, yet feels so comfortable. The pants are a regular, smooth cotton and just like regular sweats (without the fuzz inside). I went with my usual size (medium) which is perfect. They also come in like five colours, and so many reviews were women saying they purchased multiple colours–seriously such a good, budget friendly find!
Quick note on my winter boots (which I mentioned on Instastories), they are not budget friendly but this will be my third winter with them and I love them–and they keep bringing them back, so they are still available if you’re looking to splurge. That said, I’m sharing because I found two very similar pairs that are very budget friendly for under $100 and under $40.
Hope you girls enjoyed this post, it’s been so long since I’ve been able to muster up the energy to do a try-on session and I’ve missed it, but just had to focus on resting mostly.
Be sure to head over to IG Stories to see the full try on in video & I’ll see you girls in the next one. xo
