Mom Style (That #momlife)

Three years ago, when the blue line read, “pregnant!”  I immediately started investing in a few high-quality maternity/nursing outfits as this was done on purpose because 1) We wanted more than one child and 2) I like to think of myself as a wannabe “minimalist time capsule” kind of gal. I do like modern and classic pieces, yet I don’t hop completely on the “new trend train” every year because I want to wear clothes more than once! Hence my love for the classics. The secret to always being in style ; )

For maternity items I have found H&M has the best maternity/nursing basics such as this blouse I’ve been wearing a lot over in Instagram stories lately (and styled above) I also really like there nursing dresses since they’re extremely functional while also very modern and classic.  

Big Moments/Photo Shoots
For my baby shower and important photo shoots (like maternity or family photos) I’ve always gone with Pink Blush or ASOS for a good dress. Their dresses are always unique and beautifully made for a decent price.  For our newborn family photos last month, I actually got there “regular” lace maxi dress instead of maternity because I know I’ll wear it again. Plus, the detail on it is amazing! Even our photographer said she feel in love with the dress! : )

Brands That Carry You Through 
Hands down for this category, it would be Ingrid & Isabella, H&M, Seraphina (this one is a bit pricy) and ASOS Maternity. I’ve tried cheaper brands and the clothes never last or hold up. Especially the cheaper nursing items after spit up had landed on them. Unfortunately for those, after a few washes, I had to throw them out. 

Investment & Quality
Even though Seraphina is a bit pricy, I can wear all of the pieces I’ve purchased from them while pregnant, nursing and after. Even last spring I was walking around wearing one of the sweaters I got from them. Ingrid and Isabella brand is equally the same quality, yet cheaper. They both “grow” with your ever-changing body and needs as that’s why I believe they're priced the way they are. 

On A Budget
If you’re on a budget, I think H&M is by far the way to go! I like how they are cut and designed to fit you better than other brands and the maternity pieces are certainly higher quality. Yet the price is the same elsewhere. To really break it down, here are my favorites for each category.
