An Uncomplicated Life Blog: Fall Maternity Style

Fall Maternity Style

I'm coming up on the home stretch of pregnancy! Which is exciting, but it also is the toughest (nevermind that "first trimester is the hardest!" junk, the third is). It's when you get really big, it's hard to breathe, it's hard to move, and you go to your closet to get dressed and next to nothing fits you. So, you know, there's that emotional challenge in addition to the physical challenges! Alas, I've developed a staple, go-to look for my fall maternity style.

And clearly, plaid had to be involved. Don't worry though, I left the pumpkin spice out of this post! No PSLs here, and it's not because I'm not drinking caffeine... #nopslzone


This shirt is actually non-maternity and I found it at Target. I actually bought a clothing article from Target that fits and isn't terrible quality! Hallelujah, the heavens sang and the sky is filled with sunlight! Never thought that would happen. Watch out though, I haven't washed it yet. It could fall apart on the spin cycle... Here's some non-Target plaid options that are actually less expensive and just as cute: here here and here!

Pairing nonmaternity/maternity clothes to expand your wardrobe while pregnant

 
The tank is a basic white maternity tank. Whether you're expecting or not, all women need basic tanks for cardigans, button-ups and under see-through shirts! Get one (or more!) in white, black and nude for starters.

Distressed Joe's Jeans and booties

The fabulous jeans are Joe's Jeans from Pea in the Pod. They're currently on sale, so get them while you can! I've talked about my struggle to find decent fitting maternity clothes that are actually stylish and not covered in loud, obnoxious prints. Pea in the Pod is ON POINT for maternity style! They dress a wide range of figures, and even have amazing yoga/barre/active wear. And I have insanely high standards in yoga apparel!

Cuffed jeans and booties

The booties are Franco Sarto (shop similar here) and are the most comfortable pair of shoes I own, hands down. As in, Ugg boot level comfort! I like how the wedge dresses it up a bit, but keeps it easy to walk in (hello, uneven weight distribution and easy falls!) The sand color enables them to go with everything! Just cuff up those jeans and you're set.

Paid and maternity cuffed jeans

Do you have a look you're loving for fall? Plaids are clearly everywhere and I love it. I was so happy to find this one and be able to wear it over my bump - and I'll be able to wear it after, too! Have you struggled with finding maternity style that fits you or your desired look?

  1. Look at those long stems! I see why trying to find jeans is impossible and I cracked up over your caption the other day about where ripped jeans hit you ;-) My sister swears by Pea in the Pod as well. I couldn't believe when I shopped with her, how bad the quality of maternity things are and how expensive. She just would beeline it to Pea in the Pod because of the quality products. Love the pictures in this one!

  2. You are just about the most adorable little pregnant lady ever! I'm loving that you're rocking the plaid. Target is definitely hit or miss for me, too. I did run into a shirt that I'm dying to buy there last week. I haven't done it yet, but I may! The fabric felt like such great quality.

  3. You are so cute! I'm sure you are excited that the rest of your pregnancy will be in nice weather instead of the summer heat. Now you get to wear all these cute plaids and boots!

  4. Why do you look so adorable?? I certainly didn't look like that when I was pregnant : ) I love your effortlessly stylish fall look, complete with the cuffed Joe's jeans and booties. Perfection.

  5. You might be the cutest pregnant woman ever. Come dress me, okay? Except, I'm not pregnant. That shouldn't be a problem, right? :)

  6. I wish I had looked this cute when I was pregnant! I never had good luck at Target either (how is everyone so obsessed?!?!?! I don't get it!) But your boots are to die for!

  7. Yay for plaid! You look so cute! Plaid is most definitely my fave for fall and I've sported it a few times with the growing bump now. I went to look for maternity pants this weekend and struck out. It's going to take the hubs some serious convincing for me to go to Pea in the Pod, but I won't give up!

  9. Love your plaid shirt and how you layered it as a jacket here showing off the baby bump. Great Fall porch too. Wishing you the best with the rest of your pregnancy, too.

  15. You look adorable! I love the look of casual plaid over the bump! I'm 27 weeks along with my 2nd, so I know how much of a challenge it can be to stay cute all 9 months!

    I just posted a maternity edit on my blog recently with my picks of budget finds for stylish maternity wear, would love it if you or any other mamas wanted to check it out!

  16. I have horrible luck with maternity pants. I am 5.8 and every pair of maternity pants I try are two shorts. It wasn't a problem with my last pregnancy since it was summer and I lived in Maxi skirts, but I want to find some jeans for this pregnancy since I will be pregnant during the fall and winter. I will have to check out pea in a pod and see if I could find some.
