First Trimester Looks

Since finding out I was pregnant my body and emotions have definitely been on a roller coast ride.  There are days that I feel completely normal and others I feel like I am a whale and can’t fit into any of my normal clothes.  I remember freaking out and telling my husband, “This cannot be normal, do you think I am having twins, why do I look 5 months pregnant?”.  It wasn’t until I joined The Bump and Baby Center that I realized I was 100% not alone and what I was going through was completely normal.  Thank goodness!! 🙂

Below are some of the looks I would put together when I was out and about in my first trimester to help make the baby bump less noticeable.  One of the hardest parts is trying to keep it a secret for as long as you can because I literally didn’t want to tell any one, other than our families, the good news until I saw our doctor and got the “OK” after my 12 week checkup.  Not only is that hard, but it is almost impossible sometimes, especially at work lol.  Your co-workers see you 8+ hours a day, so I will always be thankful that have my own office so I can hid away when I wasn’t feeling my absolute best.

My Top 4 Pieces for the First Trimester

  1. Flowy Shirts
  2. Boyfriend Denim
  3. Shift/ Swing Dresses
  4. Maxi Skirts

 Flowy Shirt- These are completely essential during your entire pregnancy and I am so thankful that the loose flowy tops are all the rage right now.  Thankfully, I own so many that I won’t have to shop for many more of them.

Boyfriend Denim- The boyfriend denim allows you to still dress like your self, but give you the extra wiggle room in your jeans to be comfortable. 


Shift/Swing Dress- These are my absolute favorite because not only are they super comfortable and soft, they perfectly hide the little baby bump that continues to grow.

Maxi Skirt-  All hail the maxi skirt because it is always a crowd pleaser!! A recommendation is to get one that has tiny stripes/ prints going vertically; they really hid the look of a baby bump.      Be sure to look out for my Style The Baby series were I will have different ways to Style The Baby Bump from month to month. 🙂


Colors of the Rainbow

This beautiful State dress was one of my amazing finds from the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale and I have been waiting to wear it because it is just to gorgeous to keep in my closet.  I wore this dress last weekend for a wedding dress fitting for my friend (she said yes to the dress ❤ ) and to a girls brunch…let’s just say everyone loved it!!


Not only is the dress one of my absolute favorites but the amazing necklaces Charming Charlie sent to me are on constant repeat in my everyday wardrobe. They were definitely right when they stated “Best. Necklaces. Always!” 🙂

Garden Dress

For the first part of our trip to Germany we stayed in Duisburg where my mom is from.  It is an absolutely charming town with adorable classic homes, tons of beautiful gardens and many memories of when I would come down for the entire summer to spend time with my grandmother.

On the second day my Aunt Wilma picked us all up and took us to their garden home.  In Duisburg most people live in either apartments or town homes, so they do not have land to plant or garden.  Here it allows them the opportunity to have their own space to do just that, and it was absolutely adorable.           I wore this dress because it was perfect to run around the town and super comfortable. I picked it up the weekend before at Marshalls and paired it with my Forever 21 felt hat, sandals and a backpack to carry all of my travel essentials: Nikon cameras, Gopro, and etc.        Nestled between hundreds of other garden homes my Aunts was my favorite.  Immensly cute, vibrant, and nothing but perfect German charm!!
