I’m officially in my third trimester! It means I have three months to go, I’m out of the blissful second trimester (where the morning sickness is gone but the hugeness and discomfort haven’t settled in yet), and I should probably get serious about this whole having a second baby thing. I happened to start my third trimester on the first official day of spring and while my spring wardrobe will be seriously limited this year (it is hard to get excited about clothes you’ll only fit into for a few months), I’m excited for the pastels, the lace, and the floral. Here are a few spring trends I’m loving at the moment, and if I’m not able to find a maternity version, you should wear them for the both of us.
Bell Sleeves: These fun flirty accents on shirts have been popping up everywhere from high end designers to Target’s newest launch and I think they’re darling.
Romantic Floral: Every spring it seems floral make an appearance but this season they seem even more prevalent than normal, and possibly even cuter too?
Lace & Crochet Anything: I’ve outgrown the last of my lace and crochet tops and skirts (I tried a few on this past weekend – no luck) but this cardigan has been a go-to and I’ve been gravitating toward more unusual pieces like lace shoes lately.
Blushing Pastels: With both colors of the year being pastels, you know its going to a big year for the gentler colors and while I tend to like darker colors when I’m pregnant (you know, to tone down the beached whale look that inevitably comes along), I couldn’t say no to this pastel dress (that feels like a tee shirt, albeit a very fitted and stretchy one).
Robes: They’re not just for lounge wear (although I do have my eye on a few darling ones for the hospital) and they come in so many pretty patterns and colors this spring. Plus, they’re easy to layer on over your favorite basics and I can wear them with my miniature bowling ball.
Any favorite trends or pieces you’re loving? Or any advice on surviving another third trimester?
P.S. Some of the above trends make for high maintenance clothes so Tide came up with these new pods that are perfect for washing Cotton, Acrylic, Wool, Lace, Polyamide, Polyurethane, Elastane, Polyester, Rayon, and Spandex. It means I can throw this sweater in the wash without worrying about it and when I fit back into those more delicate lace pieces in a few months I won’t have to hand wash them out of worry they’ll get ruined (bonus points: the first thing I noticed when washing with these was the amazing smell #sogood).
