I've shown you all a few maternity looks already, but I want to share some of the basics about dressing your bump. You don't have to spend a fortune to look cute while you're growing a human, and I have a few tips to help you do just that!
But first, I want to share this look that I'll be rocking this week, since Miami's temperatures have taken a little dip in the last few days. The items are all linked at the end of the post.
The most basic of all my maternity wardrobe needs is the base of this outfit, and can be the base for MANY MANY MANY outfits. These black leggings are nice enough to dress up with boots and a cute top, and comfy enough to wear with sneakers and a tee. Here, I went for a casual look, pairing it with a basic white v-neck tee from Old Navy, and a quilted vest from Old Navy as well. For a warm, festive touch, I added this plaid blanket scarf, which is so versatile. It can be used as a scarf but you can also throw it over yourself and use it as a blanket while on a plane or in a car. It's one of those great wardrobe pieces that you can use a number of ways. I went with beige riding boots to give some contrast to the look.
And now, my tips for dressing your bump.
What tips would you add?
Stay fab, friends!

Some days I'm just over wearing jeans or yoga pants. I still want to be comfy, because I'm loading a toddler in and out of the car, taking numerous trips to the bathroom, and running errands. But I really enjoy looking put together while I do those things!
I also don't claim to be a fashion blogger, but I do really enjoy putting looks together and making old things current again. Every item I'm wearing in this look I have had for years. This dress is maternity, a holdover from my pregnancy with Caleb. It is the softest t-shirt material and I have worn it countless ways. The chambray shirt is probably the first chambray shirt I ever purchased and I honestly have no idea where I even got it. I typically wear this shirt tied around my waist, because it doesn't have much of a shape, but I thought tying it in a knot above my protruding belly would add another fun layer to the look. I would never wear a shirt tied this high up unless I was pregnant, because hello, I don't want anyone to think I am pregnant when I'm not!
These Cole Haan Zero Grand Wingtips are some of the most comfortable shoes I own. My husband had a few pairs and before we took our big trip to Paris a couple of years ago, he convinced me that they were a good buy. I'm glad I listened to him and spent the money on them, because I have worn them more times than I can remember, and they really are the comfiest (they weigh nothing).
The backpack is from Ryla Pack - it's actually from their line before their recent rebrand. It's the best "diaper backpack" anyone could want!
And as far as my hair - I fell asleep with it wet last night, and woke up with it looking pretty wild. To tame it, I took a straightening iron to it and threw in a few waves to make it look presentable. When I do this, I focus mostly on the front, which is what most people pay attention to anyway!
The look was even comfy enough to help Caleb put together this pumpkin! (Thanks to his madrina for getting all the supplies and painting the pumpkin ahead of time!)
