Grey & Black - Simple Second Trimester Maternity Workwear

A simple and comfortable work outfit - knit trousers and a cardigan in black, and a draped, wrap top and shoes in grey.

Thursday, July 3, 2014


My husband finally agreed that I have begun to look pregnant in this outfit.  It might have been the way the top (which is non-maternity Vince) clung to my belly...Plush pink leather moto and  snakeskin print slip-on sneakers.

Summer dress and bright pink leggings!  This dress has a pleat in a fortunate spot which means it still fits over my belly.

Three Second Trimester Work Outfits

One of my favorite work wear outfits...I love simplicity and texture!  Ponte knit trousers and a chiffon top in cream.

Maternity summer workwear.  These trousers don't work quite as well as my non-maternity knit pants that I wore under this to the ballet.  However the other pair give me muffin top now.  I might be able to wear leggings under this, as it's pretty long...but the maternity leggings I own are not completely opaque.  I added this silver leather bow belt for interest.

Navy and black maternity workwear.  A simple outfit for a day that I thought was going to be cloudy and cold...but turned out to be quite warm!  Gold Anna Beck necklace, ring and earrings.

What I Wore to the End of my Husband's School Career

I wore this outfit to my husband's graduation. It was a very long evening, but I'm glad that he decided to walk in his ceremony.  It's a nice way to close this chapter of his life!


May favorite maternity top!  This top is from Pea in the Pod.  It's soft and comfortable, and I love the texture and color.  Worn with white cami and white ankle maternity jeans.  The studded Kors Michael Kors ballet flats are old and beat up now, but they go with so many things I can't give them up. 

I wore this to my husband's final project exhibit opening.  We had to be there for about four hours, and many friends and relatives came and admired the fruits of his hard work!  This is a non-maternity Everlane silk blouse (one size up) and Pea in the Pod maternity charcoal trousers.  Prada Sport snakeskin pumps.

Second Trimester Business Casual

These pointed-toe patent flats with ankle pants is a cute and comfortable look.  I typically avoid patent, but these flats were inexpensive at the Nordstrom Rack, and it turns out they aren't too painful!  This maternity top is Pea in the Pod (My bump shows more in stripes).

I wore this outfit to the ballet.  I got to use my new disco-ball leather clutch that my brother gave me as a mother's day gift!  The top is from Zulilly.

Anther Zulilly item - this dress.  Worn with (non-maternity) Commando cropped lace-trip leggings.  The no-waistband style of the Commando leggings works well for me in pregnancy!  The jacket I've had forever and is Current/Elliot.

Sporting my new black ponte maternity trousers!  they're a touch long for these wedge pumps, but so comfy (and, better too long than too short).

More Pregnancy Styles

These white maternity ankle jeans from Target were one of the first maternity items I bought and I've worn them the most!  They are incredibly versatile, great for warm weather, and seem to take any outfit to the next level of style.  Chanel-esque pregnancy style here, with a black muscle tee, navy and silver tweed jacket (J. Crew) looped pearl necklace and black pointed-toe patent flats (Via Spiga).

I love this colorful striped tee - it gives me a chance to mix orange and pink into my outfit; a color combination I like!

A more casual look with navy maternity tee and navy wedge pumps.  Topped with a cream leather jacket.  Easy.  I wore this to a doctor's appointment.  I swear, it takes me more time to get to the appointment than to actually have the appointment!

WIW in my second trimester

A pair of elastic-waist pants, a half-tucked muscle tee, pink leather moto and black and gold slipper flats.  I am quite hired of the slouchy bottoms and started to crave trousers!  This week my mother and I made a trip to Desitnation Maternity and I splurged on a few pairs of maternity trousers.  Trousers were one of the first things that stopped fitting me.

Weekend casual!  This outfit is all maternity clothing.  I ordered it from Zulilly.  It was very inexpensive, but non-returnable and took about three weeks to arrive!  Ah, trade-offs.  My Bikenstocks in dark grey suede are new, and my new favorite summer sandals!

New blush pink sweater.  This maternity sweater is so cozy!  It's a design by Jennifer Love-Hewitt from Destination maternity.  Pea in the Pod charcoal trousers.
