Whether on the beach, running errands or chasing kids, this look brings easy comfort to your busy day. Full length ruching plays well on your growing belly and bends with you while accentuating your best curves! We are loving the Betty Striped Maternity Dress from Isabella Oliver!

Play with pops of color to add personality for a fun summer look. For added flare, think Neon! Combine with playful accessories for a casual, yet chic statement.

The Fur Vest Statement

For this trendy look,  I really wanted to go for a fun and bolder style.   As I’m sure you know by now, just because you are expecting doesn’t mean you have to wear ‘mommy jeans’ and baggy, unflattering clothes. Leather pants add a sophisticated edge to a pregnant woman’s outfit.  We’re all about finding ways to help you look spectacular throughout your pregnancy, and leather is one of the hottest trends this season (As previously seen under The leather jacket‘)

A faux fur is a fashion “do” no matter what the occasion (Last seen under ‘Stripes Made Simple’) In fact, you could wear this piece at the office, on the weekend or even as the finishing touch on your most glamorous of looks.  There are lots of fun ways you can wear a fur vest, and it will be the focal point of your outfit so keep the rest of the outfit a little more basic and fitted.  You can wear a fur vest with Leather pants, leggings, a maxi dress, a pencil skirt, a dress, or even shorts.  Since the vest will be drawing most of your outfit’s attention, avoid wearing too many accessories and different patterns so that you don’t overwhelm the look.  My personal favorite look is wearing it under a denim shirt (Last seen under ‘The Shacket’)

This outfit may feel a little outside your comfort zone but it’s easy, comfortable and cozy if you just give it a try.  Show us how you would wear a fur vest if you have one and post your picture on Instagram (Tag @karenzaro #mychicbump).  We can’t wait to see your own personal style on this fabulous trend!

“A mother’s joy begins when new life is
stirring inside…
when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the
very first time,
and a playful kick reminds her that she
is never alone”

The Sweater Dress

Having to bundle up with too many layers of clothing can be uncomfortable and frustrating when you’re pregnant, especially during the cold winter months. So how do you you keep warm while staying chic and comfortable? Sweater dresses of course!

Sweater dresses are one of the most current trends in Winter wear because they not only keep you warm and cozy, but they look stunning as well!

Wearing a sweater dress is comfortable, but just as important, it’s fashionable. And since sweater dresses are already in the closets of women everywhere from before they were pregnant, why not take advantage of the stretchy comfort to complement your pregnant belly? You can find sweater dresses in any number of styles and designs that are made to provide a close but comfortable fit and a terrific look.  The best thing about sweater dresses is that its a way to wear sweaters without looking baggy and frumpy. Instead, a well fitting sweater dress hugs a woman’s curves and highlights her sexiness, always a plus when you may not feel your hottest while trying to dress up your baby bump.

Sweater dresses can be work for most occasions, including more formal looks with a tailored jacket or blazer, or a more casual style when paired with leggings. If you’re feeling adventurous, try wearing it with colored leggings for a casual, but cool look that gives colors from your dress some extra pop.

As far as accessories, try a fun scarf and dangly earrings to look extra put together for your date with your hubby. Your shoes will depend on the occasion but this outfit is flexible enough to work with a ballet flat (casual) or a pair of heels or pumps (formal/sexy) when you’re at work or out on the town. Boots can also give your outfit a chic touch just make sure they’re the right length so you elongate your legs as much as possible to look longer and leaner!

Wishing all of my ladies out there an amazing International Women’s Day today. Feel inspired!

Nurse In Style

Shawl: Seraphine Maternity | Dress: Victoria’s Secret Clothing | Shoes: Old, similar style here

As a new mamma or soon-to-be,  when nothing seems to fit, the idea of having to build a new wardrobe can be terribly overwhelming, not to mention stressful. While it may seem like stocking up on maternity clothes is the way to go, the key here is to invest in pieces that can be worn in many different ways, and most importantly, a piece that is sure to stay in your closet even after the bump disappears.

A piece that I personally love was given to me by Seraphine Maternity and its fast becoming one of my favorite items! Say hello to where fashion meets functionality! The Breastfeeding Bamboo Shawl not only serves as a nursing cover, but get this, it also works as a beautifully draped shawl and scarf! And the best part is that it will work for you during pregnancy, post-pregnancy, nursing and beyond!

  • As a shawl, it oozes elegance and grace.
  • As a nursing cover,  it provides stylish functionality and privacy.
  • As a scarf, it finishes off any outfit with a classy touch.

You’ll love snuggling up your baby under this soft and delicate wrap. And because it comes in this gorgeous latte color, it can work as a neutral and go with almost any ensemble!

Maternity cardigan, Seraphine Maternity | Dress, similar style here | Shoes, as seen here

This gorgeous cardigan from Seraphine is definitely one of my favorites! I must have worn it 3-4 times a week towards the end of my pregnancy! Everything from the cut/shape to its lavish soft feel, makes this item a definite must-have on my wardrobe! When worn open, it drapes beautifully around your body and gives a sense of elegance and grace. When worn closed, its asymmetrical shape draws attention away from your growing bump because of it’s interesting neckline and the lines it creates around your body. Its wool/cashmere  blend keeps you warm and cozy, perfect for this chilly weather! And  most importantly, it provides great length which is great for making you look taller/leaner (at 9mo pregnant who wouldn’t want that!). Plus, after you give birth it works as a great nursing cover! Talk about versatility!
