Driftwood Suede Moto Jacket xs – I’m such a sucker for suede moto jackets and the color of this one caught my eye. The fit is very petite-friendly, which is a bonus for me. The xs fits slightly snug on me right now, but I know it will be perfect post-pregnancy. The sleeves run just a tad long, but I can easily roll them under. I love the attached belt detail too. It doesn’t move around and doesn’t feel overly heavy (like the Blank NYC one). The suede has a medium weight, which makes it perfect for fall and winter (with some layers). This jacket also comes in a dark gray color as well.
FYI – I ended up returning my Blank NYC moto jackets I recently got during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I realized I wasn’t reaching for them as much and I actually prefer my moto jackets to have the belt detail.
Soft Joie Candessa sweater xs – I love a chunky knit sweater and this one is gorgeous. I love that it’s fairly stretchy making it work over my bump. It is a little short for how I like my sweaters to fit, but the quality and look are on point. Cool enough to wear in the fall and you can add a few layers to wear it in the winter. The cream is a nice versatile color that will look good on everyone. Pricey, but you can get a lot of wear out this baby.
DL1961 Mara Maternity Straight Cropped Jeans 24 – I’ve been on a maternity denim binge lately, which is probably not the smartest. I live in denim, so I’m justifying it. Plus, I know I can wear all these jeans post-pregnancy while I’m still losing the baby weight. I thought I would stick to skinny maternity jeans, but I knew I wanted something more straight to wear with booties. These looked more loose on the model online, but they fit pretty snug around my hips and thighs. I thought that was going to be a deal breaker, but these jeans are so darn comfortable, I had to keep them. I also really love the wash. I figure, after I cut the hems, they’ll look a little more like straight legs. These run slightly bigger than the maternity skinny jeans I’m reviewing below from DL1961 (although I got my normal size in both). You may want to size down. I actually love the looser fit in the waist because I know I’ll have room to grow as my tummy gets bigger. The most comfortable maternity jeans I’ve tried on so far!
Koral Activewear Lustrous Maternity Leggings xs – I had been eyeing these for a while. I know I will be living in leggings for the next 3 months, so it’s nice to have some options. I didn’t read the material, so I thought they were some kind of faux leather like material. They’re actually slinky jersey, which is even better because they’re super comfortable. The leather look make them so chic and they’re incredibly flattering. I’m wearing an xs and while they fit, I just ordered a small to compare. I haven’t been a huge fan of elastic panels that go over the bump, but this one doesn’t bother me. It supports without being too tight and uncomfortable. These are probably my favorite Shopbop Sale purchase so far!
If you love these as much as I do and aren’t pregnant, they make them in a normal high rise option here.
Soft Joie Tammy B Sweatshirt xxs – I’ve been looking for some comfortable pieces I can wear out and about, but also around the house and I loved the asymmetrical hem of this Joie sweatshirt. The material is super soft and comfortable and the xxs fits perfectly oversized. The length is great to wear with leggings as it covers the bum. If you’re looking for not your average sweatshirt, this is a great option.
BB Dakota Sheryl Cardigan xs – I don’t normally gravitate toward frilly sweaters or cardigans, but I have a feeling I will appreciate a cozy soft cardigan once baby arrives. This one is AMAZING! So soft and cozy and fits really well. There’s good weight to it, too. The xs fits really well, so if you’re looking for something more oversized, you may want to size up. I will be living in this all fall and winter!
Moon River Tie Tunic Sweater xs – I’m so sad this tunic runs so big. It could have been the perfect piece to wear over all my leggings. I also really loved the tie detail on the sleeves. If you’re tall, I would highly recommend it. A chic piece you can throw on. I would size down.
Hatch Premium Leggings 1 – I’ve had these for a couple of weeks and they’re one of my favorite maternity pieces. With Hatch, most of their pieces can be worn even if you’re not pregnant, which is super helpful. As you can see, these don’t have any waist bands or anything that goes over the belly. They’re simply good quality leggings that work for everyone. I really love that these are thick, making them perfect for cooler weather. The hem runs a little long on me, so I have them rolled under. I’m wearing a size 1 and so far they fit really well.
Paige Maternity Verdugo Ultra Skinny Jeans 24 – I was on the search for black distressed maternity jeans for a good month. I live in my black jeans, so I knew I had to get me a pair that would fit the bump. While these aren’t as skinny toward the ankle as I would like, they work and the distressing hits right on the knee. After trying on a handful of different pairs of jeans, I decided my favorite maternity style is the side panels. When I tried on anything over the bump, they were all really uncomfortable. The 24 fit comfortably with room to grow. I’m finally in jeans and I’m feeling like myself again!
DL1961 Emma Maternity Jeans 24 – Another great pair of jeans that have distressing that land right on my knees! These were the first pair of maternity jeans that I fell in love with. They’re comfortable, fitted, and I love the medium wash. Reviews mentioned they stretched out, but I’ve already worn these a handful of times and I haven’t had any issues. I took my normal size and they’re fitted with room to grow in the belly. Keep in mind, I did have to cut the hems on these (I should say, on all the jeans featured here today).
Sam Edelman Augustine Mules 5 – My favorite leopard mules are part of the sale and I couldn’t recommend them more. That is, if you’re into a pointed toe mule. I happen to really love a pointed toe flat and I love the little heel on these. They do run narrow, so if you have wider feet, you may want to size up a half size. They’ve been comfortable so far (no blisters), but I haven’t walked long distance in them yet.
Zoe Karssen Bat Long Sleeve M – I can always use another striped tee and I loved the little detail on this one. I didn’t think the xs would fit and they didn’t have a small, so I ordered a medium just to see how it it would fit. Unfortunately, it ran way too big. Now that I think about it, I should have gone with an xs. Too bad, it’s sold out now. But, in case you’re in the market for a new striped tee, this one is chic and versatile. It runs more narrow I would say, but still very comfortable.
