Fashion Influencers Prove Again Maternity Fashion Is Cuter Than Ever

I was motivated by a recent quasi-viral tweet about Meghan Markle where the “tweeter”, while commenting on Markle’s amazing fashion sense, pointed out that she refuses to wear maternity clothes.

It was a compliment on the Duchess of Sussex ability to stay fashion forward “despite the fact” that she is pregnant and should be wearing maternity clothes.

As those of you who follow this blog know, for over a decade, I have showcased hot maternity designers who have been coming out with chic, stylish and very adorable and cayooot dresses, outfits, clothing for women who are expecting.

The idea that maternity clothes should be relegated to muu muus and overalls is outdated.

And even then, maternity brands and chic preganista are finding a way to even make those two items trendy!

So in response to the tweet, I told the person who sent out the message that she inspired me to do this post highlighting the way influencers and maternity brands have proven, once again that maternity fashion is very fashionable and nothing that any mom-to-be should be afraid of or avoid!

A Blogger Boss Babe Wish List {2018 Gift Guide)

Every year, I take an inventory of what I would like to have as a blogger, vlogger and content creator and what I think newbie, rising and even experienced bloggers, vloggers, podcasters and other female online digital entrepreneurs are craving.

What’s On my Blogger’s Holiday Wishlist

bloggers wish list

I just realized that everything I put on my Blogger’s Christmas Wish List year sold out! Hmmm…. I’m going to give this a try again and let you all know what are on my wish list this Christmas. (This is not my official Blog Gift Guide just what this particular Blogger would like)

Here we go:

otter box

1

After losing several phones to cracks, I only use Otter box cases because they are the max for durability and handling tumbles and spills. Phones are expensive and I cannot afford to have them broken because my cover couldn’t handle the job. However, I am getting tired of seeing selfies with my old grey Otter cover in the photo.  That is pretty sterile and boring in color. I spotted a Bahamas Blue and Candy Pink one for just $21, a drop from the original $39.99 on Amazon.com! Crossing my fingers to get a hold of it before it goes out of stock!

prada boots

2

Just because someone had the nerve to offer up a pair of genuine Prada patent leather boots at an affordable price of $95 on The Real Real, I have to have them! And they look comfy to wear and I know that brand would be long lasting! Gimme gimme! now!

nikon camera

3

I am starting to do more fashion photography and editorial shots so I need to upgrade my camera to a DSLR. I’ve heard great things about Canon cameras but I like the Nikon D3200 Digital SLR because it comes with a complete kit that includes two lenses, a bag, a tripod, an SD memory card and more for just $599.00. You cannot beat that.

ruched leggings

4

I live in casual clothing and I love my leggings and yoga pants like I love warm bread and butter. I spotted a pair of ruched cargo leggings made by XCVI that I think are perfect because they are fitted yet loose in areas. I think the cargo color is edgy and would work great worn with sneakers, ballet slippers or with a pair of boots. It’s very versatile. I’d love to get these (retail $110) and a few other leggings in wild prints. They are comfortable and the quirky prints lifts the mood during short winter days.

burberry

5

When I go out to cover events or simply while out and about, I prefer to layer and wear a lightweight coat jacket as opposed to a heavy coat. I need one that is waterproof and has a hood to keep my head warm. A stylish version in a vibrant color would add fashion to the functionality and that is why Burberry’s Hooded Shell Trench coat is on my list as well.  You can wear it over a turtleneck and the hood is removable when you want to go with a less sporty look. It’s a bit pricey at $750 but so worth it because of the quality construction and you can see the signature checkered print showing through signaling to all that you are a little bit of a brand whore, not that ostentatious as one though. (* snicker * )

surface

6

I’m not a Mac girl yet and still into PCs so a Microsoft Surface Pro because my kids broke my Chromebook and I want a laptop that can also be a tablet but can also be scribbled on when I want to make quick notes or draw something for inspiration. It’s on sale now at Best Buy for $899 when it retails for $999. It also comes with an ethernet dock and Internet Security.

rugged-wearhouse

7

A $100 gift card to Rugged Warehouse because I could really make that stretch and pick up a bunch of neat and unique earrings, rings, screen ts, funky heels and the like.

etsy

8

A gift certificate for $250 to splurge at Etsy and pick up a bunch of unique, eclectic pieces that can be used in OOTD shoots, for flat lays or functionally in my craft.

appsumo

9

A $250 credit at AppSumo so I can purchase some Blog techie stuff!

Crossing my fingers and sending out vibes and prayers to the universe that I can score some of these awesome items this Christmas! (smile)

Here is my 2015 list:

bloggers wish list2

This time of year, people are assembling their Christmas wish list and dropping hints. I am one of them! Here are 6 items on my wish list:

1. For Love & Lemons Ashley Raglan Sweater • For Love & Lemons • $264

I love silk and silk blend sweaters because they feel great on the skin and have longevity compared to those made of synthetic materials. You can wear this Raglan sweater with jeans on the weekend or over dress pants and wear them at an evening function. Love.

2. CONVERSE ALL STAR Boots • Converse • $108

It’s getting cold so it’s boots weather and because I’m always on the go, these Converse boots are a combo of my active sneakers and my riding boots and are Perfect! They are different and will turn heads.

3. Burberry BE2120 3002 Rectangle Plastic Eyeglasses-51mm • Burberry • $149.49

I lost these very same glasses a month after I got them this year so a replacement would be great. I love these frames. They fit my face wonderfully.

4. Apple iPad Pro $1079 +

I was one of those people who tuned in to watch the unveiling of the new iPad online. I am excited that it is large enough to function as a laptop and a tablet. I checked out the specs and other functionalities and they’re tops. I’d die if I got one of these on Christmas morn.

5. Burberry Small Leather & Canvas Check Henham Crossbody Bag • Burberry • $575

I don’t go anywhere without my Coach cross body bag. It lets me keep my hands free and my bag secure to my body. I would love to  get a larger one that can fit more things and can let me give my other bag a rest. This Burberry cross body bag would be ideal!

6. Marc by Marc Jacobs Door Knob iPhone 6 Case • Marc by Marc Jacobs • $88

I have been using the massive protective Otter case that I purchased when I got my iPhone 6 Plus for the longest time because not a lot of manufacturers of chic cases had them available when I first got it. I’m a selfie queen so a stylish alternative to the boring grey I have now would be amazing!.

That’s it for this blogger! What’s on your Christmas wish list?

 

Preginistas: Here is Your Spring/Easter Inspiration Look Book

fashion spring look book

Preginistas (“Fashionable & Stylish Pregnant Women), as you prep to clean out your closet for Spring and make room for more pieces to complement your growing belly and your lifestyle, I’ve curated a selection of looks from past posts to inspire you.

I recommend colorful maxi dresses that are comfortable and stylish and can be dressed up with a pair of wedges and costume jewelry or down paired with canvas shoes, ballet flats and a denim jacket.

You cannot go wrong with A-line dresses that are belted above the belly with a colorful blazer or cardigan over top. Carry a large vibrant colored tote or clutch to add a pop of color element that is functional because it can also carry all your stuff in it is as well. For the transition weather, you can still get away with some knee high boots with a baby doll or sweater dress.

A cool new pair of aviator or Jackie-O shades will set off any Spring look. As usual, boho  or slouch hats, scarves and chunky jewelry like rings, statement necklaces, charm bracelets and big pearl stud earrings are a safe bet for adding style and sophistication to any basic look.

Hit the discount and outlet stores for quality pieces from a previous season to save money or mix and match pieces already in your closet for a stylish look.

Stay fab!
