Having been pregnant before I know the struggles that come with dressing a baby bump. Your body seems to balloon each day. Your clothes no longer fit you. Dressing for work or events becomes depressing, your shoes no longer fit and everything becomes so uncomfortable. Not forgetting the multiplying hormones that make you resent everything.
Embrace Your New Body
What is there to embrace about a growing belly, swollen feet, huge boobs and hips, you ask. Always remember it is not permanent and it’s for a worthy cause. Giving life is not easy, remember there are women crying day and night for babies. Count yourself lucky and embrace the journey plus your new body.
Comfort Over pleasure
Comfort comes first before anything during pregnancy. Remember you are carrying extra 10 or more kilograms of weight. Look for outfits that are comfortable and easy to slip into without struggling. I suggest that you opt for stretchy textured clothes. You need to breath easily and also manoeuvre around with ease.
Functional and Economical
Functional outfits mean that you will not always be shopping for new clothes while an event comes up. Look for apparels that can be worn to work, church and even for dates. You can use cover-ups, blazers to spice up the look using the same outfits. You will save a lot of money if you get functional pieces
Simple outfits always look classy without having to try too much. Go for solid coloured slip-ons or body cons. Overlap dresses also fall in this list because they are easy to wear, simple and you look elegant. For pants, tights and jeggings with long tops always wins. There are maternity pants made for women which have a comfortable band around the waist but I personally did not love them. Just avoid looking tacky at all cost.
Stylish and Trendy
Getting pregnant doesn’t mean you keep your fashion sense aside. I have seen a few women who totally neglected themselves during this period. I don’t judge or blame them but it never hurts to add some effort. Get inspiration from fashion publications e.g. magazines, fashion blogs, Pinterest on how to look fashionable during this period. Remember when you look good you definitely feel confident and great about yourself.
It’s important to consider your own safety and that of the baby while pregnant. This applies especially on the shoes you wear. Avoid wearing high heels and ill-fitting shoes at all costs. Any miscalculated step while on heels could lead to an accident. If you have to wear heels probably because of a photoshoot, ensure its a low wedge as you can see on the photos. Feet also tend to swell a lot, you will notice that most women end up wearing larger shoe size to accommodate the swelling. Doll shoes, converse and open shoes are very favourable during this period.
I have been anxiously waiting for the rains to pour like my next meal depended on it. Of course my whole life depends on it but that is not the main reason.
There are some outfits in my closet that have been lying there for so long unattended. Fashion lovers will agree with me that there are those apparels you buy and sit back waiting for the right moment to rock them.
That is my story with this particular fur coat. Am glad that finally I can be spotted wearing it. Not once, twice or thrice but I can promise you of being charged guilty as a repeat offender unapologetically.
Fur Coats remind me of Cookie in the movie series Empire. There is a kind of confidence, boldness, fierceness that they radiate. A look so clean, classic and lavish with just the right kind of arrogance. A no nonsense kind of attitude which makes a woman look like a million bucks and so effortlessly independent.
Fur coats speak for themselves. For instance, I don’t have to mention the warmth this fur coat emits. The cosiness it exudes making you feel comfortable yet protecting you from the overcast weather we have started experiencing. I would highly recommend that you get one so that you can experience exactly what I’m talking about.

How do you manage to go to the lavatory wearing that kind of outfit? This is a familiar question which most of Jumpsuit lovers face all day every minute.
But who minds stripping everything when nature calls just for a few minutes and slay for the entire day? There is no shortcut, everything beautiful has its flaws and cons.
Jumpsuits have been in existence since time immemorial. I remember as a small gal I had several pieces in denim texture(Dungarees) but at that point I never knew nothing about fashion. Coincidentally I bet it’s a mothers’ intuition, my daughter has her share of the same which ranges from pajama jumpsuits, Rompers and casual play-suits.
Dressing up sometimes can be daunting, demanding and exhausting. We wish for that convenient one-piece apparel you can pull without having to ensemble or layer it with anything else. What you see in my pictures today is a perfect definition of a convenient easy outfit which requires only ironing.
If I were to pull a corporate look with this a jumpsuit, I would just add a blazer or a sweater. Second, change my strapped shoes to closed official shoes and Voila…. Perfect corporate look.
