Dressing the Bump | Second Trimester Style

In the beginning of pregnancy, I really struggled with how to stay fashionable while incorporating my new growing accessory (the baby bump). I was able to continue wearing my normal pants for a while by doing the hair tie trick around the button until about 14 weeks. My friend was kind enough to allow me to borrow some of her maternity clothes while I slowly built my collection. 

I would definitely say my must was investing in good quality maternity pants. Unfortunately, that means spending money but for me it was worth every penny purchasing maternity pants from Maternity Motherhood instead of Target. I have worn all four of my pants from Maternity Motherhood countless times and have only worn the Target pair like twice. They just are not comfortable to me whereas the Maternity Motherhood pants fit me so perfectly. As for shirts, I have been able to continue wearing most of my normal shirts until recently. I think it was around 25 weeks where only two or three of my normal shirts fit so now I am strictly in maternity besides those few. I have purchased most of my maternity shirts from Goodwill or Ross and I wear the ones my friend is letting me borrow and another friend let me have quite a few.

Of course, I continued to add layers such as cardigans, vests, jackets, statement necklaces, etc. to help create each outfit (thank God my pregnancy has been during the fall/winter season) while I found my pregnancy style. Let's take a look at memory lane of my outfit choices during the second trimester and excuse me while I get emotional seeing my baby bump.
