Being a pregnant fashionista is tough! As the belly grows, the wardrobe goes. The last time I felt comfortable in my tight fitting clothes was on my anniversary. Greg and I had an amazing evening planned: dinner at Abe & Louie’s followed by a showing of Wicked at the Oprah house. So I put on a sexy shirt, black pants, and a leather jacket. As I glided up to my full-length mirror and turned to my side, gazing lovingly at my barely visible baby bump, I thought to myself with satisfaction, “Bump is the new black!” I felt like the cutest little pregnant lady, fitting into my normal clothes, bump and all! I even made Greg take a picture, although it took him a while to find an angle that showcased the belly:
Looking at this picture now, I can understand why Greg had to take so many trial shots! If I could go back in time and talk to anniversary night Lindsay I would say, “Girl…just you wait! The bump is coming!”
And it did. Between week 19 and week 20, I popped.
This Monday after work I put on a fashion show of dresses for Greg. My goal was to pick out an outfit for a wedding this weekend. I honestly believed that at least one of my dresses would fit! Well, I was wrong. Very, very wrong.
Pregg’s Fashion Fowl #1: My baby belly is pulling the back of the dress!
Pregg’s Fashion Fowl #2: They were big before, but these ladies can’t be tamed!
Pregg’s Fashion Fowl #3: I swear this used to zip up all the way!
The whole photo session was quite comical – I’m sure the baby was laughing along with us in utero. I looked over at Greg with grin on my face and said, “You know what this means, right? I get to go SHOPPING tomorrow!” What can I say? I am just a girl who loves pretty things 🙂
The following day at one of my favorite stores, Free People I found the perfect dress. I’m emphasizing the belly bump here, but I love the bright color, the silky material, and how the dress flows.
I love my baby bump. You don’t need to be a fashionista when your pregnant. After all, bump is the new black as far as I’m concerned. And you don’t argue with a pregnant lady.
