Dress Your Bump For Less With Le Tote Maternity

image

Summer is just about over & fall is almost here! Fall is my favorite season, especially postpartum. It’s super easy to find and pair transitional pieces with non-maternity wear while still looking and feeling fabulous! Le Tote Maternity subscription box makes shopping for maternity clothes & postpartum transitioning even easier without breaking the bank.

LeTote is a monthly subscription box or “tote” in which you get to choose 5 items (3 clothing items plus 2 accessories) monthly for rental. If you want to customize what you receive in each tote, all you have to do is log into your Style Profile and opt out of receiving certain prints, colors, or items.

Le Tote also provides measuring tape for you to accurately provide your measurements in order to ensure you receive items that fit your frame. This was extremely helpful because the Sam Edelman top (1st piece pictured above) did not fit. I was able to take my measurements and update my Style Profile for my future totes! Once you’re done with your tote, you send your pieces back in the included prepaid envelope and Le Tote will immediately send you 5 new pieces.

The 2nd piece I chose for my Le Tote Maternity box was this Mamaglo Drape Layered Top. I chose this piece because it looked extremely comfortable. I also loved the fact that it’s made of spandex which make for an easy fit with a growing baby bump.

Pregnancy Glam With PinkBlush Maternity

image

*This post has been sponsored by PinkBlush Maternity. All opinions expressed are my own.

Hey loves! It’s about that time! Pregnancy is coming to an end and this time around has been very different from my 1st run. I would say that I definitely had a lot more options with maternity clothing. More importantly, I feel as if there were much more affordable options this pregnancy vs. my last one.

When it comes to date night, weddings or any special occasion while expecting, it can be a little nerve racking to find a dress or outfit that makes you feel good and look fab from head to toe. That’s why I was so excited when PinkBlush Maternity decided to send me this beautiful Sage Pleated Chiffon Lace Top Maternity Maxi Dress. Maternity clothes, maternity dresses, dress your bump, bump style, pregnancy, pregnancy style, cute maternity clothes, summer, style, natural hair, curly Nikki, instyle magazine, popsugar, buzzfeed, Essence magazine, curly hair, pregnancy model, lifestyle, motherhood, pea in the pod,

Ladies, seriously, I was speechless! 1st off, the fit of this maternity dress is not only flattering but SUPER comfortable. I’m wearing a medium in this maxi dress. My bust size is on the bigger side (D/DD cup size pre-pregnancy and postpartum..lol) so it felt great to fit into a dress that complimented my frame. Maternity clothes, maternity dresses, dress your bump, bump style, pregnancy, pregnancy style, cute maternity clothes, summer, style, natural hair, curly Nikki, instyle magazine, popsugar, buzzfeed, Essence magazine, curly hair, pregnancy model, lifestyle, motherhood, pea in the pod,

I also adore the color because it’s not normally something I see often in stores. I’ve ordered items in the past from PinkBlush this pregnancy and I have to say their inventory is versatile and fairly priced. That was a very important factor in me deciding to purchase from them this pregnancy because we are definitely more price conscious this time around. My baby shower dress was from PinkBlush as well!

Budget Friendly Bump Style With H&M: 3rd Trimester

bump style, maternity, maternity fashion, second trimester, pregnancy, fashion, style, beauty, natural hair, curly hair, naturally curly, spring fashion, blogger, sheinside, h&mCan you believe it’s already June? We’re halfway through the year! Since I’m in the last trimester of my pregnancy, I wanted to share a quick versatile, inexpensive maternity friendly find from H&M.

While on the prowl for some season and maternity transitional pieces, I decided to take a peek inside my local H&M store. I came across this dark green patterned long sleeveless vest.

The detailed pattern and color of this vest caught my eye almost instantly. I fell in love with the color because is was very different from my usual warm and neutral tones that I tend to wear year round. The high slits at the sides give it a bit more edge than your normal vest/cardigan. This makes it easy to dress up for a night on the town or a comfy casual brunch date during the day. The fact that this vest has no buttons makes this H&M vest extremely maternity friendly.

I’m wearing this vest while 6 months pregnant but I’ll definitely be able to wear it postpartum as well. It’s also a great piece that I can wear during spring, summer & autumn seasons. New York temperatures are still in the 80s during September. During that time, I can easily wear this vest with a pair of white jeans and peep-toe or closed toe booties. The cool crisp feel of autumn temps call for dark denim or black jeans with chocolate or tan boots/booties.

Spring has been a bit chilly majority of the time these past few weeks. I was still able to wear funky H&M vest with a pair of leggings, booties and a simple white top while remaining comfy & fashionable. I plan on wearing this vest with a pair of shorts, tank top and gladiator sandals once the temperatures warm up a bit.

This vest was $34.99 and cut true to size. H&M is also having a huge sale on many spring/summer items to compliment your bump style this summer! I notice that I find a better variety of items and sizes on the H&M website than in store more often than not. Have you checked their website out lately? Also check to see if your local H&M carries their maternity line in store ahead of time. Some H&M stores have phased out their maternity section.

How will you show off your bump style this summer? Thanks for reading!

Fall State Of Mind

IMG_2074-0

Autumn is hands down my favorite season. The crisp air, cooler temperatures, scents of cinnamon, vanilla and of course pumpkin spice everything are some of the things I look forward to every year. Good hair days are also much more plentiful!..lol. The one thing I love most about the Fall season is the changing leaves and their various hues of colors.

When I was flying back to New York from Texas last month, I had a breathtaking view of New York from above. There were spurts of burgundy, burnt orange, crimson, brown, yellow and hints of green all throughout New York’s landscape. I was immediately inspired to capture this beautiful element of autumn on film.

Brooklyn’s Prospect Park is the epicenter of this breathtaking natural beauty. These images of me were captured by Daniel Racz of Daniel Racz Photography (@girlswcurls).

Project Melanina

Processed with VSCOcam with h6 preset

I recently had a photoshoot with Joey Rosado of Island Boi Photography for his project “Melanina” in Dallas Texas.

The purpose of this shoot was to showcase women in all shades of melanin embracing not only their natural beauty but also owning their unique journeys. We are not letting ourselves nor anyone else control our happiness or limit our potential for growth.

“Life is about doing the things that make you happy, not the things that please other people. When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.”

  

These images are all unfiltered and unedited. They are natural, raw and imperfect just as myself.

Special thanks to Joey Rosado (@IslandBoiPhotography) for capturing these images. An exhibit will be held showcasing the entire “Melanina” project in 2016 so stay tuned.
