Pregnancy Series 1
Hello guys, how is the going . I believe this cold is operating in collaboration with its forefathers because it’s extremely freezing Yooo! I did this photo-shoot while pregnant and I’ve been so indecisive on whether to work on a post on it or not.
My pregnancy journey was one full of all kinds of moods and emotions. A photo-shoot was the last thing in my mind .Everything I loved or passionate about turned out to be the thing I dreaded most. I resented social gatherings, dressing up, in fact anything that that would have previously set my heart on fire became a burden.

I remember my friends encouraging me to take this as an opportunity to go for photo-shoots and create content in regards to pregnancy, but I couldn’t put my mind, body and soul to do it. I lost vigor, and enthusiast, in what previously before pregnancy would have seemed so effortless for me.This particular week I was so down,my husband tried to cheer me up and booked the shoot for me. Guys this was the longest day of my life . To cut the story short, I managed the one and only photo-shoot during that period.

On this ensemble, I wanted to pull a formal look. Stretchy pants or leggings are essential for any pregnant lady. If there is a particular charge for a repeat offender, then I would have pleaded guilty for abusing these white pants .I pulled them out any day. During my doctors’ appointments, a lunch dates with my girlfriends, to work, and even on Sundays to Church.They were so comfortable especially because they are tailored with a thick waist band that allowed room for expansion effortlessly.
I actually wore them throughout the nine months.

For my Polka dotted top…..Guys this is actually a shift dress that turned into a top during my pregnancy .I think I should style it soon for you to see what I mean. So actually that’s a hack, come to think about it. Turning oversized dresses into maternity Tops….Ha!

Vest Coats are my number one go to pieces, pregnant or not. I have previously featured vest coats on past blogs. The beauty about vest coats is that they come in handy as cover-ups too, making you look stylish and edgy while pregnant.

I found this particular look ideal for work .White color in psychology of colors symbolizes Peace, innocence, purity and it represents a new beginning. It also boasts a sense of sophistication and cleanliness. To me the choice of color was symbolic during that season and also great choice for work too.Let’s wait and see what the next post in this series entails. Blessed week my dear readers . Please keep warm.

Rocking That BabyBump

DSC_4354

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

Simplicity
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.

Safety Precaution
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.
