This month, marks the last month of my second trimester and as a first time mom-to-be, I am continually amazed by how quickly my body is transforming to accommodate this little guy I’m carrying around with me. Now that I am very visably pregnant, I am majorly struggling with what to wear.
This week, the fashion gods must be smiling down at me…just when I began to feel completely hopeless in my search for stylish maternity clothing inspiration, I opened the April issue of Vogue to find this: Five Days, Five Looks, One Girl: Sylvana Ward Durrett. Sylvana is Vogue’s Director of Special Events who is busy planning the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala while nine months pregnant.
I fell in love with the first image I saw… I absolutely adore this white chiffon Alexander Wang dress. Sylvana purchased it a couple sizes up and uses a belt to cinch it above her belly. As with most of her perfectly styled outfits, she is sporting a long, oversized blazer to top it off.
I love her accessories… this striped Dries Van Notren clutch is gorgeous and I love her Giusseppe Zanotti sandals.
This will be my Spring-time maternity staple. I am officially on a mission for the perfect pair of white maternity jeans that I can pair with a simple tee shirt and (long) navy blazer.
Pregnant or not, this striped dress by Minnie Mortimer is already a wardrobe staple of mine! I love the way Sylvana paired it with this bright blue oversized Maje blazer.
This look is so simple and effortless, yet looks totally put together. A long yellow blazer by Preen over a zara cardigan and flared jeans.
This one is easily attainable… Sylvana is wearing an extra large All Saints skirt which is sitting low on her hips with a black maternity shirt by velvet and a military jacket from Urban Outfitters.
Do you lovely ladies have any other maternity wear recommendations?
This weekend is the Head of the Charles Regatta, which is the world’s largest two-day rowing event right here on the Charles River in Cambridge, Mass. I am looking forward to beautiful Fall weather and a day of fun with my girlfriends. I plan to wear something like this great Vince Kimono wrap sweater from Barneys with a pair of jeans, leopard print flats and my favorite brown leather bag.
And here are some pics from last year’s HOCR:
