It somehow always makes me so happy to share my pregnancy looks! Today I am sharing another all-day-perfect tip for all those women who are pregnant during the colder months of the year: knit dresses!
Knit dresses go for every stage of pregnancy, they are warm and comfy and they can be worn both before, during and after pregnancy – and we love that, don’t we?!
When I started off into my pregnancy with the decision that I will not buy any maternity wear but only wear pieces that I can wear after pregnancy as well, I thought it will be super easy … and it actually is! HOWEVER what is difficult, is to find pieces that are NOT only black and white (or grey and darkblue). I mean it is already difficult to find colorful fair fashion pieces for when you are not pregnant, but with a baby bump it gets everything but easier…
In the fair fashion field, minimalism, a capsule wardrobe, and timeless pieces are what most labels sell. And that’s wonderful – overall. I mean, I am a huge supporter of timeless pieces and of a minimal wardrobe and I love grey, white, black, and dark blue. I actually never follow on trends, and I wear the same old boots for seven years now!
However, I do love a pop of color every now and then, and I do love a little extra from time to time. That can be a fun flower print, some sparkling shoes, or a bold colored dress, like the one here!
When I got pregnant, I spent some time searching for pieces that are colorful and that would fit throughtout those precious nine months. And, I found some!
One of the pieces I fell in love with immediatly, was this pink dress that I am wearing here! How amazing is this color? I love it! And I also love it’s lenght, as I can actually wear it as a dress or as a jumper, depending on what I wear with it.
Currently I enjoy wearing it as a dress but I think when my belly is getting bigger I will combine it with pencil skirts and wear it as a jumper. Looking forward to that already 😀
I found this dress in the HUG Berlin online shop, where I actually find the most beautiful colorful fair fashion pieces. It’s my first place to look for everything that is NOT black and white. I have been sharing a beautiful King Louie dress on the blog last year (here) – that one I also found at HUG Berlin.
The dress is currently on sale
but I do also highly recommend checking out all the other beyond beautiful pieces… especially all these dresses…
The coat that I am wearing with this dress, is a second hand one. I found it in the In Love Again online shop for second hand pieces. Especially when looking for coats, I think this is a great address! I mean, you can spend a furtune on a fair fashion coat – or you get one for some 20€ second hand; which is super sustainable as well!
My boots are, as written above, seven year old leather boots, bought in a fast fashion shop back in the days. I treat them well and they last year after year after year. I have to admit that – sweatshop made or not – I love them for their timelessness and their longevity.
Oh and my tights are non-maternity by the way! I wear the same ones I always wore. My challenge for not buying clothes that won’t fit after pregnancy goes all the way to tights as well. So far they are very comfy and I wear them pretty much every day. I hope they will last me until the weather get’s warm enough to wear skirts without tights.
I really wonder what my little bump will look like in three months from now… I am six months pregnant now and I have another four months to go and I feel already soooooo big.
But I love it! I love having this bump, I love being so obviously pregnant. Because yes, it makes me feel a little special and I do enjoy that. I do enjoy having the whole world around me see that I am actually carrying a tiny little human in my belly. I mean, how amazing is that? How can I not be super proud of it? It’s a freaking human in there 😀 !
Do you like bold colored dresses like this one here? Or knit dresses in general? I would love to know!
