Fall Plus Size Maternity Necessities

When I picked my most recent items from Pink Blush, I really aimed to give my readers a variety of items that would be perfect for Fall. I wanted to show you the diverse options available as well as give you some style inspiration for the slightly cooler weather.

The first item is a long sleeve gray shirt with black lace on the shoulders and collar. The lace makes this shirt dressy enough to wear to work, but it is soft and will keep you comfy and warm in the cool weather. My only issue with this piece was the length, so I did tuck the bottom up to give me a better overall proportion. I paired this shirt with a pair of burgundy Ponte pants and scrappy black sandals.

The second item was a gorgeous floral dress. I actually wore this for my baby shower and got so many compliments on it! The hemline is slightly higher in the front and longer in the back, but the front hits about two inches below my knee. There is a flattering overlapping neckline to emphasize the chest and an elastic high waist to show off your curves. I tied the sash in a bow to the left side to give the look some a-symmetry. Although this is short sleeves, the colors of the floral print are Fall inspired. The navy blue and orange give this dress an Autumn flair.

The last item is a Hospital robe. I don’t feel like any mom-to-be wants to spend her whole Hospital stay in a boring medical gown. This robe is perfect for being comfortable, looking chic, and still having the freedom to be nursing-friendly. The material is very soft and light. The white lace is a nice touch to make you still feel like you haven’t lost your fashion sense. It’s always my opinion that when you look good, you feel good. I’m definitely packing this in my hospital bag!

Don’t Be Afraid of Prints

Prints are a big trend right now. What I have found is that plus size women fear prints may make them look larger.  I have not found this to be the case.  I like prints that are unique. I’ve seen a lot of elephant prints lately and I love that. The shirt is from Rue 21. At the time I think I paid $7 for it.  This is one of their brushed tanks, which are extremely soft and make you feel like you’re not even wearing a shirt…seriously. The cardigan is from Burlington Coat Factory.  I got it for $12.  The jeans are also from Burlington.  I paid $25.  They’re stretchy and comfortable.  I’ve talked about the sandals before, they’re from Torrid and I got them on sale but regular price is $32.  But they’re absolutely worth it!  They fit so well and add some sparkle.
