This is (most probably) my very last fair fashion maternity outfit! And it is one of the very few looks that still fit 😀
My belly grew another four centimeter in the past eight days and I am hardly fitting into anything anymore. Some of you may know that I decided not to buy any maternity wear that I cannot wear after pregnancy as well, so I am pretty much down to a capsule wardrobe by now.
But that’s fine! I mean, I do not have to wear a ton of different outfits the last few days before giving birth, and since it is rather hot than cold these days, I am good with loose dresses and wide cotton pants.
So here I am actually wearing some size S cotton pants that I have been wearing last spring and summer as well – you can actually find them in a blog post from last year, when I was in Portugal in May.
They fit wonderfully and are among the three pants that I still enjoy wearing.
The blouse is actually a maternity blouse, yet one that can be worn without belly as perfectly as with belly! It comes in a nice oversized fit and can be knotted in the back to make it look more of less fitted.
Since I’ve got it, I’ve been wearing it a lot, since it is very comfortable and looks great with pretty much everything.
I actually cannot recommend blouses enough for pregnancy, and beyond. During pregnancy they are just wonderfully comfortable and make you always look “dressed” no matter what else you are wearing – be it leggings, wide cotton pants, pencil skirts, jeans or whatever you feel comfortable in. Blouses just add style to every single outfit!
But the best thing is that you will LOVE them after giving birth. You do not need any special nursing t-shirts or whatssoever; all you need is a few nice blouses – or other pieces with buttons! Whenever you want to breastfeed your baby, you can just open the first three buttons are there you are.
I know I won’t be able to wear my dresses (which now go so perfectly with the bump!) after giving birth … because it simply is impossible to breastfeed with a dress; unless you completely want to undress yourself. I remember that I did’t get to wear most of my dresses for the first YEAR after giving birth to my first daughter. However, I did enjoy them even more when she started on solid foods and I didn’t have to be “ready” anylonger anytime during the day 😀
I really love the collection from Isabella Oliver for being perfect for pregnancy and beyond. Even when it comes to dresses, you will be able to find a lot of wonderful ones in their onlineshop which are all button-up so that you can easily breastfeed wearing them. Also, in case you are looking for some high quality, long lasting pieces that can be worn during pregnancy and beyond, make sure to check out there “nursing section” in the webshop. Here you will trulyIn find everything you’ve been looking for.
In my last maternity outfit post, I’ve been wearing a jumpsuit from the same label which is also perfect for both a big bump, and for nursing. You can check out the post here if you haven’t done it yet.
By the way, of course this blouse, pants, and everything that I am wearing here or that I linked to is produced under fair conditions and in an environmental friendly way. Just in case, you are visiting my blog for the first time today: I only share clothes and products here on the blog that come from labels that I WANT to support because of their commitment to the working standards, the environment, and the future of this planet.
Now that being said, there is nothing more to add for today 😀
My little pregnancy series on the blog will now come to an end. This post here is actually the very last pregnancy related one! You can find all my pregnancy posts when going to the “pregnancy” button in the top menu. There will be a little bit on the so called puerperium, the first few days after giving birth and then I will be back to my regular topics: more fair fashion, some general tips on how to live a more sustainable lifestyle, natural cosmetics and more. Oh and then of course there will be a loooooot on our big trip from mid-july on! What big trip? You can read all about it here.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I wish you all you future mothers there a woooonderful pregnancy! And always feel free to ask me anything! I am always so happy to help!
