While this is not a sponsored post I did receive a complimentary subscription and promotional item in exchange for my review.
I said I would be bombarding you with pregnancy pics and showing off all of my Bella Gravida maternity clothes so here is the first installment!
Last week these packages showed up at my doorstep.
What a treat!
The first outfit (shown on the top left) was a basic black dress by Imanimo. I wanted to like this dress. It was soft sweatshirt material, but modern and chic.
It had so many fun details like the zipper in the back
Or the asymmetrical grey piping and kangaroo pocket in the front.
It’s a cute dress and I did have an appointment this week that it was totally appropriate for, but in the end I would say the dress did not do me any favors. The cut on my body was like wearing a potato sack (you probably can’t tell from these poses, but just take my word for it). Oh well, it was still worth a try! That’s one of the perks of Bella Gravida maternity rental wear. You can try stuff without any obligation to keep it, but if you do love it they do have purchasing options available.
Next up I got to try this Everly Grey Eunice Dress. It was much shorter than I expected, but I paired it with leggings so it was more like a shirt.
The first day I wore it I got to go on a little coffee date with J followed by attending Z’s graduation from his robotics class. It happened to be really cold that day. The red lips, boots, and trench coat made it such a classic autumn look. I loved it and wore it again to church the next day.
Lastly, I had a similar look with with this lightweight knit sweater. It’s perfect for this unpredictable weather because you can stay cool when it warms up, but it’s not summery. Coincidentally it’s called the Evelyn Top and Evelyn is what we plan to use as our baby girl’s middle name. Ahhhh! Did I even just say that!? I’ll admit, I have had a really hard time not just announcing the name.
As long as I’m talking about baby stuff, I should mention that I am 33 weeks now. I feel like she is going to be a fairly big baby. I probably have just forgotten what it feels like to be “with child”, but my stomach is so heavy and tight! The braxton hicks have been increasing and so has the insomnia. Also, I am all over the map emotionally. Last week I felt invicible whereas this week I have felt a ton of anxiety, but I am hanging in there.
I have been more intentional about taking ALL of my vitamins. I want to be in tip top shape when it comes time for labor. My next prenatal appointment is on Monday. I’ll be sure to give updates on that and my next Bella Gravida package!
This whole rental maternity fashion experience has been awesome, but it’s even better getting to share it with you, so thanks for that!
You must be excited. Praying for God to bless you and your family.
These maternity clothes are cute. Congrats on your pending motherhood. 😉
Love this fun post! You are a beautiful mama in all these photos! But I agree that I like the last two items best. Very cute!
Love all the cute clothes and it makes me miss fall. It is still warm in CA, which I will enjoy in Feb, but right now i’m ready for summer to be over. 🙂 I have been blessed with so many hand me downs from friends who are not having any more babies, but if I didn’t have them a rental option would be a great one. 🙂
You look so great! I know the last weeks are hard, but really they’ll be over before you know it. I can’t wait to see pics announcing your new little girl!
You are cute. I agree that first dress, not so much.
You are so stinky cute! And this is an interesting concept for clothes.I can’t decide if I’d spend the money or not, but I love the idea of having new clothes to wear every month. I got so sick on my maternity clothes. This is filed in my brain for next time I am pregnant!
Love all the fun photos! This is such a great idea and I feel like it shows how happy you are. Beautiful! 🙂 pregnancy is a wonderful and crazy thing! 🙂
Cute!! How fun to have this opportunity at the end of your pregnancy, when you tend to be SO OVER most of your clothes! I hope you’re able to rest well in preparation for delivery.
I LOVE that gray top! And what a pretty middle name! 🙂
How fun to have clothes shipped to you and that 2/3rds of them made you feel good. I’d say that is a pretty successful shopping experience.
I am sorry that insomnia has been an issue – it is so hard to maintain equilibrium when that is going on – at east in my own life that is true.
Take good care of yourself
You look beatuiful! I love all the clothes, except the first dress which was way too big on you but the rest are so cool and flattering! You look like a Mama with a great fashion sense! I wished I looked like this at 20 weeks nevermind 33 weeks! Finally, I absolutely adore the name – retro cute and you don’t hear it often these days! It was my great Aunts name 🙂 She was a wonderful woman so you’re beauty will be in good company! xo
