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!

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!

On Trend: The Treggings

Leggings have become an essential part of every girl’s wardrobe recently and pregnancy is no exception. You’ve heard me talk about their comfort and style here, here, and here. But today I’m doing one better. Let me introduce you to the legging’s elegant upgrade, the Tregging!

So what’s the big difference between leggings and treggings, you might ask. What sets it apart is that Treggings lean more towards the trouser/pant end of the style spectrum than leggings. Whoa whoa whoa! You mean I can wear them as regular pants? That’s right! And not only that but it still gives you the benefit of the stretch and comfort fit of leggings.

With Winter fast approaching, having something slightly thicker (and much warmer) to wear is a lifesaver. Treggings are great for that but the right pair can provide much more than just warmth. The Seraphine Treggings I’m wearing here are a gorgeous combination of comfort, style and smart touches. They are made with really high quality material so it’s not only warmer, but it will last longer, look nicer and keep its shape better over time.

Having more styling flexibility while still keeping the comfort and stretch that made leggings so popular is amazing! Seraphine has added several nice touches that really sell the pant look and make all this possible. First, the line down the front of the leg is a really slick trick. It makes it obvious that there is some structure to the pant and gives it a stylish, tailored look. It also elongates the body and has a slimming effect because of the continuous line it creates down your legs.

Another great feature is the “under-bump’ cut, unlike maternity pants which wrap over your belly to stay in place. Both fits have their benefits but the under-bump cut definitely adds to the pant feeling. It is also what makes it possible to wear all types of tops and make it look great. In this outfit I’m wearing a normal cut shirt and layering it with this awesome tweed jacket for a stylish casual look. For an evening look, pair Treggings with an elegant top or tunic like the LUXE tunic worn here.

Something that may get overlooked if you’re not careful but that makes a big difference are the working, usable belt loops! It’s another nod to a trouser feature and opens up all kinds of possibilities with belts, scarves and other waist accessories. This lets you be creative with your belt placement and mix it up a bit with color and style.

So if you’re looking to upgrade your look heading into Winter and want to stay on trend, Treggings may be just the right fit for you.

A Touch of Luxe

In Maternity chic, Outfits, Trends on October 29, 2012 at 12:10 am

A special thanks to my sister Melanie for helping me with this photo shoot!

Top: Seraphine Maternity (Luxe Collection), Treggings: Seraphine Maternity, Shoes: Similar style here, Purse:  White House/Black Market (Last seen here)

I’ve been hesitant in the past to buy lots of maternity specific clothes, but Seraphine Maternity is one of the main reasons I’ve come to change my mind. They have done an outstanding job catering to exactly what a pregnant woman wants and needs. Not only in size and fit but in bringing luxury and high style to pregnancy. And you all know how much I love looking chic! They’ve done such a good job in fact, that Hollywood stars like Jessica Alba, Sienna Miller and Angelina Jolie are also wearing the high quality European designer for their pregnancies.

But more than for their A-list clients, the quality of the materials they use, the inspiration they take from the latest fashion trends and their carefully thought out designs which flatter and provide comfort are what has made me fall in love with Seraphine and their Luxe maternity collection.

I recently got this gorgeous black and gold tunic which has become one of my favorite pieces. This elegant top instantly transformed my view of maternity clothes. I thought this was going to be a regular tunic but boy was I wrong! It feels so flowy and feminine I almost wanted to spin around like my daughter wearing a fun dress for the first time. It is incredibly light and comfortable because of it’s silky, sheer material and feels like a dream to wear. I’m a huge fan of outfits that feel and fit great, while still looking chic and trendy, and this doesn’t disappoint.

It is beautifully designed. The black base color has a slimming effect on the body and makes the metallic gold pattern pop that much more. As a tunic the length is also a huge plus because it doesn’t stop at your widest point but instead creates a sleek flattering silhouette by continuing down to around your thighs. This piece does something even better though. When I wear it with black bottoms it ties the blacks together and disguises the break between the top and bottom. The rounded gold pattern breaks it up further and tricks the eye into thinking that the tunic just keeps going, elongating your body that much more.

The belt just above my bump is equally creative in it’s usefulness and style. You’d think it’s just a normal, well placed, flattering belt to highlight your best parts by breaking up your bump from your bust. But it actually does much more than just look good. The belt actually has two hidden ties, one in front and another in back that enable you to keep it in perfect position at all times. As I’m sure you all know, this is incredibly helpful when trying to keep clothes in place over an 8 month baby bump (and take a bunch of pictures)! They clearly understand pregnant women’s struggle and went the extra mile to make it easy to look good and stay comfortable, all while hiding underneath a beautiful and unassuming belt.

Maybe the best thing about this outfit is the fact that it looks great on a pregnant body, but it will be just as gorgeous after giving birth. This beloved tunic will fall perfectly on my post-preggo body and look just as amazing. It’s definitely worth investing in high quality pieces like this when you can feel beautiful and be able to use it for longer than just the 2-3 months when you’re super pregnant. Overall, the slimming base color, feminine, silky material and metallic gold pattern make this piece both chic, Luxe, and a must have for pregnancy.
