Pregnancy is filled with so many challenging things. There’s the whole morning sickness bit and making sure you’re on the same page with your baby daddy about parenting styles aaannd…it’s a never ending list!
One of the things that drove me crazy was getting that bump of mine dressed each day! As that baby grew bigger, my clothing options were shrinking. During my second pregnancy, I started Knocked Up Fabulous to motivate me to stay away from my husband’s sweatpants and t-shirts, and to actually get dressed in real clothes and look presentable.
Back then there weren’t a lot of bloggers blogging about their maternity outfits. Today, there’s a whole slew of hot mamas sharing their adorable, and obtainable, style! If you’re looking for some inspiration on how to dress that bump, or if you know of a friend who needs some help in this department, take a peek at my top favorite fashionable moms!
