Staying Chic While Pregnant

I am having a lot of trouble finding Geek Chic Fashion finds for the Maternity Crowd. So, I  have been searching the corners of the internet to find the best and have gathered my favorite looks here that are closest to my normal “Fashionably Nerdy” style. What am I looking for? I’m searching for comfortable, stylish pieces, that I would wear if I wasn’t growing larger daily. Pieces that I feel would look similar in my closet next to my non-maternity wear. Lastly I’m looking for pieces that I could see myself wearing throughout not just this pregnancy but hopefully others down the road. So, what have I found?

This adorable “Mom to Be” Long Sleeve Tee
from Lilac Clothing

I love this Maternity Starter kits with a bunch of basics and essentials wrapped up in a little package this is the BUMP IT KIT by Seraphine – while they are a lil pricey around $150 they come with pieces that you can accessorize with many cardigans, jackets, purses, scarves and jewelry you already own to make your look unique and geek chic just like you!


I love Polka Dots – it’s really a problem… so you bet there will be a few polka dot items on this list – this is the first which is fancy enough for a cocktail (mocktails for us) party, Holiday Party, night out at the theater, etc!  This Liliana Polka Dot Party Dress by Kimi & Kai it’s totally cute and I could see getting a lot of versatile wear outta this!


By far this is my favorite dress I have found thus far in my search for a perfect daytime dress for brunches and baby showers, etc. It’s more Polka Dots in multiple colors this is the Gabby Dress by Kimi & Kai  and at $88 it’s perfect!

It’s not really cold enough in Los Angeles to warrant me getting a maternity coat when my other coats should cover most of me – but if i was gonna drop some money on an adorable snuggly look for winter – this would be on the top of my list also by Kimi & Kai with a price around $200 it’s super stylish and the color scheme would make me feel like I was British or a Superhero.

I’m also a huge fan of stripes… and Top Shop. Did you know Top Shop makes maternity? I am taking a prenatal water yoga class and have started bursting out of my swimsuit… so, it’s time to switch over to a maternity one and this Striped One-Piece Bathing Suit is a steal (on sale for $38)


Polka Dots again from Seraphine. This is a classy little black number…
Zuri Dress by Seraphine


Motherhood Maternity

favorite /must have for me!

Ok, I obviously love these looks too from Imanino
I mean maternity — SPACE PANTS!!!

Another one of my favorites is this vintage feeling dress from Nom Maternity
I would most definitely wear this whether I was sporting a bump or not…
Hardest part is choosing which color.

And I LOVE this big floral print from Leota


Maternity Leggings pretty much come in black and not a whole lot of other options
these ones from Babe Maternity are pretty out of this world…

Maternity will only take you so far – so I’m also looking for stylish maternity / nursing cross over items that are stylish… like this top from Kinwolfe


I’m gonna keep searching for the best deals and looks to dress my bump and yours… because what other choice do I really have? Am I gonna go out into the world naked?

What are your favorite maternity brands?
