Some easy ways to put together a great 4th of July outfit is to look for basic pieces like shorts, tank tops, and skirts, then accessorize them with some holiday flair. For me, I like to accessorize with my red beads and add some denim in for my blue.
Celeberity Looks- Kate Middleton Maternity looks
When you’re married to a prince, you’re bound to have a fabulous closet. This is why it can be hard for the average girl living on a small budget to recreate these royal maternity looks. But it’s not impossible when you get creative with what you already have. You will be surprised by how easy it is to recreate some royal looks.
Here are a few looks that I came up with from my own close in my closet that was inspired by some of Kate’s maternity outfits.
I’ve got to say I’m pretty jealous of Kate’s coat collection. She has so many fabulous coats, that I would love to have. I loved this look that she wore here, with a Burberry trench coat, while pregnant with Prince George. I have a knock off trench coat from Forever 21 that I really love. I recreated her look with it and a simple outfit with leggings and black flats.
The best ways to recreate Kate Middleton’s looks is to just stick to her basics and copy her classic style on your own budget.
Dressing Your Baby Bump for the Holidays
I’m excited to be pregnant during this Christmas season. Besides having to skip out on the holiday drinks I enjoy so much this time of the year, I’m very happy to be expecting our little man this Christmas. There is just so much to celebrate and be thankful for! Plus, I have this fun little baby bump to dress up!
While going through my closet, I’ve realized that there are a couple important things to keep in mind while planning out your maternity holiday outfits. The first thing is to remember to be comfortable. Between eating all the yummy holiday food and your growing baby smooshing your insides, comfort is my number one priority when picking out my outfits. The second thing to remember is to stick to very basic clothes that you can easily accessorize with some of your favorite Christmas accessories. My favorite way to accessorize during the holidays is with green, red or anything sparkly.
For my next look, I wore this simple black cotton maternity dress from Target (similar here). This is the only actual “maternity” dress that I have bought so far. I figured if I was going to spend money on maternity clothes, it should be something simple that I could wear over and over again, and what’s more simple than a plain black dress? I added my green bubble necklace and my most comfortable pair of heels. I wore this look to my husband’s company Christmas party.
Here is the same black dress, I just tried it out with my shimmery gold scarf instead of the necklace. I also wore my black tights and ankle boots to give it more of a wintry look.
Continuing on with my all-black outfits, Here is an example of sticking with very simple comfortable clothes and just accessorizing them. Here I wore a black long tank top, leggings and a black blazer. I accessorized it with an infinity scarf that has some red and green in it and my boots.
I thought this look would be a great casual Christmas day look. I wore my polka-dot blouse, jeans, a red cardigan, green statement necklace and brown boots.
Those are just a few ideas that I have for this Christmas season. If you’re pregnant this year, hopefully these looks will help you figure out some ways to dress up your baby bump. If you’re not pregnant, this can still be a great guide to help you figure out what to wear this Holiday season!

Making the Most of Non-Maternity Clothes~Second Trimester
One great thing about growing a baby is all the fun that you get to have to find new ways to style your new body. Pregnancy is not always cheap though. There are doctor bills, buying things for your new baby and for many of us….unpaid maternity leaves to save up for. This is why my goal has been to stay in my normal non-maternity clothes for as long as I possibly can. Maternity clothes can be expensive and I really don’t want to spend a lot of money on clothing that can only be worn for such a short period of time. That’s why I’ve been searching through my closet and trying out all my normal clothes to see what still fits and figure out how to wear them with my growing bump.
Creating a Fall Wardrobe in the Heat
Lately, I have decided to bring on the fall wardrobe, with or without the hot temperatures. I’ve been going through my clothes and figuring out new ways to wear some of my summer clothes with a few of my favorite fall clothes and accessories.
This is a new outfit that I recently bought at Kohls. The top (exact here) was $10.80, found in the clearance section and the leggings (exact here) were on sale for $6.99, both found in the juniors department. I never shop at Kohls without checking Retail Me Not first for coupons. I ended up getting 20% off of my purchase. I decided to accessorize my new outfit with one of my favorite pairs of brown boots and my red beaded necklace. This look is the perfect mix of fall and summer.
I love wearing maxi dresses in the summer, because they keep me cool, and I love scarves in the fall and winter because they keep me warm. So when I combine the 2 it makes for a great warm fall day outfit.
For all of you who live in warm climates, I’m sure you can relate to my fall dilemma, but hopefully these looks will help you figure how to bring a little fall into your life…even if you feel like the summer is never ending.
