The Challenges of Dressing a Small Baby Bump



It's 40 degrees (104 F) outside and I'm 5 months pregnant, so right now I feel totally excused from participating in life - including socializing, answering my phone, cooking, dealing with people and getting out of bed. Also, I have no idea what to wear because, well, it's so hot I can't breathe and also because I'm in a stage where I don't yet look obviously pregnant, but rather...umm...fat.

I haven't bought any maternity clothes yet, instead I got this pair of elastic waist lace shorts that will hopefully fit me until the end of the summer. Otherwise I mostly wear dresses, because leggings are the only "pants" that I could possibly squeeze myself into right now... if it wasn't so unbelievably hot, that is.

For yesterday's trip to Rome I needed something very comfortable and breathable, so I paired my new shorts with this oversized and very light cotton shirt, but I couldn't really decide whether it looks better with a belt or without it. See, the belt gives my figure some (much needed) definition, but my waist is not as thin as it used to be any more, so I'm not sure whether it's a good idea to draw attention to it. The shirt without the belt is much more forgiving and can hide my little baby bump, but in certain moments it makes me look 9 months pregnant instead of 5. Decisions, decisions... :) What do you guys think?

Thankfully I had a brand new statement necklace to draw the attention away from my belly - a big thanks to Happiness Boutique for sending me this lovely piece - I got so many compliments on it!




It's pretty clear who my husband thought was the more photogenic between this stray cat and me... haha

Shirt: Bershka
Shorts: H&M

  6. I think you look beautiful either way... the belt looks great and does give you some definition but it looks great loose too... I know it is so hard to figure out how to dress when the baby bump is small to begin with... very soon you will be dressing it to show it off... I feel for you with the heat... I had that issue when I was pregnant with my oldest, I wore sundresses as much as I possibly could xox

  7. I've once again fallen far behind with my blog reading list, dearest Anett...so first off, let me just say CONGRATULATIONS!! You look absolutely radiant in your white lace shorts combo; and I think that sparkly statement necklace is the perfect way to enhance your pregnancy glow while downplaying your little belly. I say "never mind" to wearing a belt with those intense temperatures you've been enduring; we're in the middle of our second heatwave this summer here in Vancouver, so I know that wearing ANYTHING snug is only going to make you that much more uncomfortable. You deserve a break!! XOXO
