What-to-Wear | Maternity Edition

Welcome to the first, bi-monthly What-to-Wear post! As my most frequently asked question, "What should we wear to our session?", many people need fresh ideas for photo session outfits. Dressing for our next photo-shoot need not require you buying a new wardrobe; many times, you can re-purpose existing outfits and layer them with new accessories to create new, timeless looks.

Expectant moms tend to have the most difficulty when dressing their changing bodies, but luckily, modern fashion has given new moms great fashion choices. One local store in particular, The Bump-Maternity Boutique, does a fabulous job in helping new moms feel fashionable. Clair, owner of The Bump-Maternity Boutique in Fort Mill, SC, says,

"we shop for designs that are created to make a mom-to-be feel as beautiful as she looks.  It's time to show off your bump!"

This outfit is perfect for a mommy-to-be. The Olian Maternity Khaki Wrap Sweater, with hood, offers a casual appearance along with rich detailing; the hood provides an added layer that is ideal for picking out clothing for your next photo-shoot. The Bump-Maternity Boutique, also offers these beautiful Three Seasons Straight-Leg Maternity Pant; a dark-wash pant with modern stitching and a very comfortable knit panel, that takes you throughout your pregnancy for only $49...I'd say that's a STEAL!

In efforts to remain transparent, I am not pregnant, and do not intend to be for many years, but sometimes I wish for a pair of jeans with a knit waist--especially after the Holidays---yikes! So Clair, I might be coming to see you;) Laugh as you might like, but you know that you've considered too!

My good friend Shannon is the most fabulous Stella & Dot consultant I know, and when she heard about this blog post and the great clothing pieces from Clair at The Bump, she immediately knew the perfect accessories to give this outfit a pop of color & texture.

So without further a-do, I'd like to introduce the CAMPARI NECKLACE by Stella & Dot:
