Ultimate Comfort

First I want to say thank you all so much for all of your comments, tweets, instagram messages, and emails on my big news of being a first time mom. You are all incredibly sweet.

{Cardigan: Zara (old), Tee: H&M (old), Maxi Skirt: PipLey Boutique (sold out), Necklace: Francesca's Collection (old), Belt: H&M, Bracelets: David Yurman, Forever 21}

Maxi skirts pretty much provide the ultimate comfort for me as my baby bump begins to grow. While pants make me feel like I either can't breathe or I'm suffocating my baby... this skirt is soft, stretchy, and stylish. I wish I could wear maxi skirts into the winter and for the rest of my pregnancy. But alas, I can't. It looks like I'll have to look into pregnancy pants. Say it ain't so!

Have a great weekend everyone! I'm off to find more maxi skirts to wear...

Happiness at Mid Life said...

What pretty pattern & color on your maxi skirt. When I was preggo & bought my 1st pair of jeans I couldn't believe how comfy they were. I bought some from the Gap and they were very reasonable & stylish without breaking the bank. We have a maternity store here that sold designer maternity jeans but I would never spend $100+ on a pair of maternity jeans.


Gina said...

This is such a fabulous outfit bc it is so chic and comfy at the same time. Great combo, and you look radiant:)

XO, Gina

I LIVED in maxis the first few months, that's for sure. I'm still trying to get as much use as I can out of mine but it's starting to get a little colder so I'm not sure how much longer.

Just an FYI - I've been finding most of my maternity clothes at Old Navy. They're super affordable & it's easy to shop because I just buy the same size as I was pre-maternity. In my area, they hardly have anything in store (which is weird since I'm in Utah) so I've done most of my shopping online. Also, as far as pants are concerned...I found that the full or smooth panel pants are much more comfortable than the demi panel ones. The demi panel tends to be a little tight and as you grow it gets uncomfortable, especially when you're sitting down. The smooth panels give lots of breathing room & should last you through most of your pregnancy. My fave jeans are a pair of ON's rockstar full panel jeggings. I bought them when I was barely showing & I'm still wearing them now. Super comfy.

Loving this outfit! It looks super comfy, but still put together!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Great skirt Yu-chai! You look adorable and it is going to be so fun seeing your maternity style evolve. Your bump doesn't show at all yet, front on. You have to do more profile views for us. LOL You are so dang cute!

Thanks for loving my $5 LBD! Yes, only $5 (I googled the brand at it is from JCP original price $100!!!) yes.

Elegance and Mommyhood said...

First of all Congratulations on being a first-time Mom. It is the best thing that happened to me this year. I wish it on every girl. You will be a great & stylish Mom. I cannot wait to see how you will style your bump.

This Maxi Skirt is Cute & Comfy - I have featured it on my blog before. It will be great for a belly bump too. Also today I am co-hosting my first ever link up with Agnes. Please stop by my blog and link this Outfit. Also, I'd love your support by following me Yi-chia. Thanks so very much.

Once again CONGRATS SWEETIE. Ohh and I think you will be seeing Blue. Or Pink. =D I seriously don't know and it doesn't really matter. But something tells me you are having a Boy. =)

<3 & Hugs Ada.

Pip said...

Awe... I remember when everything started to feel so weird around my belly! Crazy isn't it?! You should just invest in nothing but maxi skirts your entire pregnancy! LOL! You are so cute and will be so adorable when you have an all belly! Have a good night Maylee!

The Twirl Team said...

It is sad you can't wear maxi skirts...so comfy...
I can't wait to see the maternity outfits you will put together!

Ricademus said...

That does look comfortable--and stylish. Perfect for fall. Maternity clothes are not to be feared, you'll look great. About that...you've mentioned that your hair can be difficult some days. It always looks great, but it looks especially pretty today. Do you think that's a pregnancy perk?

Diana Ashuayem said...

Lovely look, nice Maxi skirt.

Adeola Naomi Aderemi said...

I wouldn't mind living in maxi at all since they look so chic and comfy!
You look amazing doll!

Sam said...

Hi dear, the striped maxi looks so elegant on you, a wonderful outfit for in between seasons. I appreciate your visit hun! Happy Friday!

Sarah Hartley said...

The first time I put on maternity pants from my uncomfortable, tight-fitting normal pants, I thought I had gone to heaven. They felt amazing. Embrace them :)

Jessica said...

You look beautiful and I love your maxi skirt. I do not have any experience with maternity wear but I have seen HATCH mentioned on several blogs as having great maternity clothes. Maybe you can check there for some pants to help keep you warm this winter.

Perfect way to transition your maxis into fall! Not that I would know, but I can definitely imagine a stretchy jersey/cotton maxi would be much more comfy than jeans for when you're pregnant!!

Natalia | Fashioned by Love said...

Oh you can definitely definitely wear maxi's for most of your pregnancy! Just get some wool-based ones, with a bit of lycra and try to find circle ones / full skirts because at first you can wear them as maxi and then pull up and tie with a belt just under the bra line to create an empire line midi dress that can be worn with low-heel/flat-feel booties and cosy cardigans or coats. :)

Maxi skirts and dresses will definitely work for you throughout the whole pregnancy.
I personally also loved shift dresses and shirt dresses because you can belt them wherever is most comfortable :)
