FF–The Cover Up


Happy Friday everyone!

I will tell you that my “Fashionable Fridays” are becoming a bit harder with a growing bump.  I am still in the transition period from regular clothing to maternity which can be frustrating at times.

Every morning I am trying to be creative with what I have while still maintaining the need for comfort and style.  The outfit below was my latest attempt – using my bathing suit cover up as a tunic! 

I paired it with a black camisole underneath and ended up loving the look.  The cover up is gauzy which is nice and cool and very long which covers a lot of my growing midsection.  While I have found that dressing the bump is all about “smoke and mirrors” - this will definitely be a new staple for the fall (and will look adorable with a comfy pair of leggings,too)!


New use: Tunic



Old Use: Bathing Suit Cover-Up



I have also been using an elastic hair tie to extend the life of my colored denim.  These are obviously not maternity jeans, but still fit everywhere else but the stomach – so I figured I would give this “waistband extender” method a try.



This technique worked great  and will definitely be used a few more times before I head full steam into regular maternity clothing!
