Fashion Lookbook: Get Inspired by These 7 Maternity Outfits Leah Ashley Rocked

leah style 981

The only sad part about FABLife day time lifestyle talk show Stylist Leah Ashley giving birth to her first child is that am going to miss the very stylish ways she assembled her clothes while pregnant. The co-host to the new show and started her career as a popular YouTuber used accent colors and mix and matched with texture and layered wonderfully to pull together a perfectly styled maternity wardrobe.

I enjoy recreating outfits I’ve seen and hunting down similar if not the same piece. I am a firm believer in not reinventing the wheel. That being said, I spent some time curating my fave looks Ashley wore while preggers and shared on her Instagram page and assembled them into style collections. I share below why I loved each look and where you can get a similar items to recreate the looks. I’m going to pin these on our Bellyitch Maternity Fashion page which you can access.

First above, a chunky cable knit sweater over slouchy sweatpants with a leopard scarf draped in an infinity loop around the neck is a great casual weekend look.

Overalls were in style for everyone for a couple of seasons now. That is perfect because traditionally that’s what pregnant women wore because there wasn’t much maternity options. Here, Ashley mixed denim, light denim shirt with stone washed overalls and accented with red slingbacks. Perfect. The statement necklace polishes off the look and is unexpected because it is so ornate compared to super cas denim.

This ensemble can only work during the first trimester when a mom-to-be hasn’t popped quite much yet, but still wants to conceal a growing bump under a fairly loose top. Pairing this black silk turtleneck with drawstring shorts does the trick. The gladiator boots adds some chic flavor.

Gingham is also a big pattern this year. And also great for hiding a bump in the early months are peplum tops. This top over denim skinny jeans are the money. Add red ballet slippers for cute outfit to wear child shopping or out and about during the weekend.

For more dressy functions or work, a comfy black dress works and wedges are perfect for getting some height but are less unstable as heels. A leather motorcycle jacket is a great outerwear topper. Bucket bags are perfect for carrying all your stuff.

My eyes immediately went to her heels. Oooh la la. It looks effortlessly stylish and polka dot with anything is classic. With Ashley’s short crop hair, it gives me a modern Audrey Hepburn feel. Love it!

This isn’t a complete outfit but I like the idea of mixing patterns. Here, her gingham cropped pants worn with black and white pumps work so well together. Break the rules why don’t you?

There you go. Hope they inspired your maternity wardrobe for the next few months.

Finally! After lots of fertility struggles, model Chrissy Tiegen and her husband singer-songwriter John Legend are finally expecting their first child.

The outspoken TV co-host announced the news on her Instagram account today.

“John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant 🙂 As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family,” she captioned a black and white photo of she and john on a couch. “We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx”

During a taping of Tyra Banks‘ new panel talk show, FABLife, in September, Tiegen revealed that she and Legend had been struggling to have children.

“I will say, honestly, John and I are having trouble,” Teigen confessed, while cluing everyone in that they had been to fertility doctors. “We would have kids five, six years ago if it’d happened,” she added. “But my gosh, it’s been a process!”

She also expressed frustration at being asked constantly when she would have a baby when she was trying but not being successful.

“So, anytime somebody asks me if I’m going to have kids, I’m like, ‘One day, you’re going to ask that to the wrong girl who’s really struggling, and it’s going to be really hurtful to them. And I hate that. So, I hate it. Stop asking me!'” She said.

She thanked all those who supported her after that big reveal.

“Regarding the IVF business, I have never gotten so many kind, encouraging words in my life,” Teigen tweeted. “You guys are awesome and appreciated.”

Yay! Congrats!

Tyra Banks and Chrissy Tiegen Open up About Fertility Struggles

The same week that Gabrielle Union opened up about fertility struggles, Tyra Banks and Chrissy Tiegen are also sharing about their personal battles.

A clip from Banks’ new lifestyle show,  FABLife, reveals the two models getting real on what they’ve gone through to start a family.

Tiegen revealed that in the 10 years she has been with and later married to John Legend, she has spent some of that time trying to conceive but it has been hard and she sort of resents the constant prying by others asking when she will start a family.

The outspoken in social media star said she is asked about it“every single time I sit down for an interview with anybody.”

She seems to resent it.

“I can’t imagine being that nosy to be like, ‘So, when are the kids coming?’” she says. “Because who knows what somebody’s going through?… I will say, honestly, John and I were having trouble…it’s been a process. We’ve seen fertility doctors, and then once you open up about all those things to other people you start learning that a lot of other people in your life are seeing these people, and they have this shame about it.”

Banks said she could relate.

“I am so tired of seeing on my social media, ‘Why don’t you have kids? Why don’t you have kids?’ You don’t know — you don’t know what I’m going through,” she said, breaking into tears. “When I was 23 years old, I used to tell myself, ‘In three years, I’m going to have kids.’ Then I turned 24. ‘In three years, I’m going to have kids.’ Every single year I kept saying that. And then after awhile, it’s like, OK, now I want to, and it’s not so easy.”

The episode will air this Monday but you can Watch the clip from the show below:
