It has been beyond freezing in Calgary for the past 2 weeks. Staying warm with a bun in the oven requires lots of layers and I love the look of a poncho & a pregnant belly. Mixing a solid with a pattern underneath helps to add a bit of interest. I also like the look (and feel) of something a bit tighter underneath a bulky sweater. I’ve also converted 100% to maternity bottoms now. Black tights are a staple for me and so easy and comfortable to wear. For really cold days, look for ones that have a bit of fleece lining to keep your legs warm. I haven’t had too much ankle swelling yet, but comfy warm boots like these ones by Pajar or a pair of classic Uggs will be well worn by me in the months to come.
On another maternity fashion note (not shown here) – outerwear became a problem for me pretty quickly as my warmest parka just wouldn’t do up over the boobs and belly. Maternity stores don’t have the best options for really warm jackets so I went to one of my favourite spots and just bought a large size with lots of room to grow. I plan on consigning items like this post-baby so the investment can be recouped (to some degree).
