Being pregnant and having to adjust to your wardrobe needs without spending so much money is a huge task. Luckily, I didn’t have to buy a range of maternity clothing during my first and second trimester because I could still fit into most of my dresses, shirts and skirts and got ONE maternity leggings to style with my work shirts. All I did was pull them up above my bump.

I usually sized up if I needed to.

This dress is a very old dress I have had for over 5 years but its style makes it possible to wear with or without a bump.

This white off-shoulder crinkled-ruched mini dress is an absolute buy and must have for summer. Easy to get in, enough elasticity around the boob area, which can give support to my sisters who love to go braless.

The sleeves comes with an elastic band at the elbow region, which makes it adjustable to your desired length.

I decide to style this dress with a chunky sneakers by SAM EDELMAN and you can shop the exact same one HERE and it’s perfect to create a simple brunch look.

It’s funny how I am African but can’t stand the heat wave here in America. It is humid, and super uncomfortable. I am 100% certain at this point that the sun and its humidity is definitely different than Nigeria.

Due to the discomfort summer brings, I decided to incorporate light weight skirts into my wardrobe for summer. If I need to wear trousers, I gravitate towards Palazo Pants or Culottes.

This is an old skirt from seasons back I got from FOREVER21. Pretty sure it’s out but I will link something else HERE HERE

I was going for a Tan and Cream look, so I styled each individual item with the aim of achieving the color scheme. Shoes are STEVE MADDEN and you can shop same shoes HERE

This statement necklace is a THRIFT find and it’s ANN TAYLOR!! going for $4!!!! The price at which I got it for is incredible, that’s why I love thrifting because it is a challenge for me to find quality items without a cost.

Top is a FOREVER21 (OLD)which works as a staple piece in my closet.

These pants are a perfect example of summer vibes. Its colors, designs, florals and pleat is a great mix that depicts the season. It’s a Newlook item which was gifted to me by my sister-in-law and has been one of the fun staple pieces in my closet.

Top from Primark, earrings from H&M, Shoes from Old Navy. I linked these Items on my previous post. you can check them out and shop.

Shoes extremely comfortable, good choice for summer and if you need something flat, stylish and comfortable. Top is light weight and suitable for the weather. I chose to style the pants with Teal because it’s one of the highlighted colors on the pants.

You can choose whatever color you desire.

Statement earrings are a great choice for accessorizing if you have less make up or you need to create a focus on your face. I will link a couple of statement earrings below to shop.

You can certainly style this top in various ways, one of which is with a work wear pants or skirt to create a work wear or a pair of White Jeans to help create a contrast with the Teal shade and make it stand out.

Same option goes for the Pants as you have various options in styling it. I would suggest a graphic Tee, a white shirt, tank tops, Blazers, Jumpers etc. You can also decide to mix florals together, no harm, it’s fashion and make it stylish!!!!
