Casual Friday

My Outfit:  Vest (sold out similar style here) || Leggings || T-Shirt || Sunglasses || Shoes (old love this style!) || Bag (old similar style here)

I am currently almost 19 weeks pregnant and I cannot believe how this pregnancy is just flying by.  I remember when I was pregnant with Addison I was patiently waiting for my baby belly to appear. What I wasn’t expecting was about 22 weeks to pass before my bump was finally apparent in clothes.  This time around, while I have only noticed a “real” belly in the last week or so, I definitely felt pregnant very early on.

I’ll be writing a post next week about how my first trimester went, but in the meantime I had to share a little pregnancy secret.  Something that not only got me through the first few postpartum months last time around, but has also gotten me through that awkward phase where you just feel bigger than you normally are and nothing really fits.  These  leggings have become a fast favorite.  I have them in a few colors including black, blue and a few fun patterns. They sit high up on the waist and hug around my growing tummy without falling down.  But, if you are thinking the price tag is a bit high, I found a budget friendly alternative that just as amazing. I’ve been living in variations of this outfit for the past month or two and the long vest helps me feel a little more put together than just throwing on a t-shirt and stretchy pants.  I hope everyone has a great Friday and enjoys the start to their weekend!
