When it comes to diaper bags, I try and find one or use on that can double as a purse. In the beginning, I was carrying around a purse and a diaper bag and it was way too hard. Eventually I changed to just a diaper bag with my purse belongings and now, I just carry a purse with diapers and wipes.
Opt for a trendy diaper bag like the one pictured above (or a less expensive option) and you can have the best of both worlds! You can also look into camera bags; I know this sounds crazy but 1. you will probably always be carrying a camera 2. they offer a ton of slots for all of your and baby’s things and 3. they’re SO cute! Check out my Jo Totes bag below 🙂
The key for me is to not spend too much. Yes I want to feel and look good but because this is only a temporary phase in my life, I don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on clothes I’ll never wear again. Check clearance racks at places like Target and Motherhood maternity; even if you find pieces that aren’t “in season”, you can always wear a cardigan and add leggings!
Just remember, your body is going to be going through a lot of changes and you’ll want to dress in a way that you feel comfortable. And don’t be afraid to take risks! Just because you’re pregnant, doesn’t mean you can’t be trendy and stylish. Some of my favorite maternity selections include PinkBlush Maternity, Target, and Old Navy. All three of these stores are having huge sales right now so be sure to check them out!
And because FALL is right around the corner, I’ve teamed up with two of my best bloggy friends to bring you an awesome giveaway. I’m SO jealous of whoever wins this one… good luck ladies!
