HOW TO SLAY YOUR PREGNANCY
Six months ago I conceived these two little miracles and have been laying low! The beginning of my twin pregnancy for a lack of better words, kicked my ass! It wasn’t until a few weeks before I shot these images, that I began to feel myself again. In preparation for my motivational speaking gig with THE PREVAILING WOMAN CONFERENCE, I decided to pre-shoot my outfits as this would be my first public appearance since conceiving. The shoot went amazing and I felt so beautiful in my growing body! See below for deets on my looks!
Can we talk about this stunning Maternity dress by BOOHOO Maternity! I loved this dress so much, that I ordered it in multiple colors. Prior to my pregnancy, I’d never shopped at this online retailer. It wasn’t until I did a google search for a white maternity dress, that I came across their store.
Something I truly love about this dress is the material. While it fits in all the right places, it also give me comfort where my boys need it. I normally wear a size 8-10, but ordered the dress in a 12 to make sure I could continue to grow with it.
Day 1 of the conference, I wanted to wear something that truly represented my style and personality! Earlier this year I purchased this amazing pleated skirt from KLEAUX KOUTURE and never had the chance to wear it. I saw it hanging in my closet and wondered if it would still fit. To my surprise, it did!!
I paired the size L skirt with an old 1x top I loved too much to give away with my old plus size clothes for the perfect combo! Because I’m now a medium top, the 1x shirt was extremely big, so to give it a trendy look, I tied the front in a knot. Yasssss, for re-purposing clothing items! The last piece to the puzzle was my favorite fedora hat and a pair of strap Jessica Simpson heals…
Finally, the last day of the conference, I chose to wear a comfy jumpsuit I found for $12.99 at Ross Dress For Less. It’s a size XL and the loose fitting material gave me just enough room in the midsection to fit the bump, lol. I loved the off the shoulder top and cute detail, it was perfect for the day’s activities.
