Swimsuit season is almost here and if you are pregnant like me that means navigating the somewhat limited world of maternity swimwear. I have spent weeks scouring the internet for chic and affordable swimsuit options for a beach vacation we have planned for May.
These are my top 6 picks, ranging in price from $30 (use sale codes!) to $66.
Happy shopping Mamas!
We celebrated the 19 week mark of my pregnancy with some mommy and me maternity photos. I got this mint maxi dress 2 years ago to wear at my baby shower and have been waiting for an opportunity to wear it again. Zappos still carries it and it's non-maternity, so it can easily be worn post pregnancy as well. I ordered a Medium and it is flowy enough to accommodate a growing bump. Lilly's gauzy mint dress is from Old Navy. It's no longer on their website but may still be in stores and I have linked a similar mint gauze dress.
I styled our dresses with Baybee Boutique Teething necklaces.
I was pleasantly surprised how versatile these silicone and wood teething necklaces are! It's one item I never got when Lilly was an infant and definitely wanted to have this time around with baby #2. Lilly loves having and wearing her own mini version of the adult necklace and enjoys playing with the beads on my necklace while I'm holding her. When Baby #2 arrives I will use it during nursing, and of course teething! I really love that Baybee Boutique offers neutral color options in addition to their brighter options. The neutral colors give me the ability to incorporate my necklace into many looks and doesn't scream "teething jewelry".
I am all about versatile and functional baby gear this time around, so get ready for more posts on my favorites and feel free to share any of your faves that you can't live without!

When building a maternity wardrobe, I usually gravitate towards basic/staple pieces that will pair well with items I already own and will get a lot of wear. Knowing that I will be pregnant during the spring and summer months, dresses are definitely at the top of my list of must haves. This versatile dress by Pink Blush Maternity is a perfect Spring/Summer maternity wardrobe staple. It is comfortable, can be dressed up or down, and it's affordable! I styled the dress 3 ways to show how I would get the most out of this one item, using mostly accessories to create looks for this shoot. Jackets, utility vests and scarves are some more non-maternity items that will elevate the look of a casual dress. Getting more than one look from a single piece using items you already own is a great way to add variety to a limited wardrobe and makes dressing the bump that much more fun!
