I did have an outfit to post today, but the pictures need to be reformatted. Nate was going to do this for me, but couldn’t get the program to work right. Hopefully, those pictures will be ready to post later this week. I decided I still wanted to blog about something even though I didn’t have “new pictures” to post. I decided to take Ashe’s advice, and turn to my site stats and search terms. After combing through the results I decided that a lot of people are searching for and finding my blog by searching for maternity fashion. As luck would have it I was in fact pregnant for a good chunk of last year. Thus, I have a stock pile of posts featuring my pregnancy fashions. Feel free to browse through all of my maternity ootd posts . However, I will share with you my favorite & more “obviously pregnant” outfit combinations.

In July, the bloggers participating in Everybody, Everywear donned yellow and bathed the blogosphere in sunshiny yellow. I   dyed a pair of khaki shorts yellow for my entry.grey sweater, pink pants, colored denim, pregnancy fashion, maternity style

This non-maternity pregnancy approved outfit is another entry for Everybody, Everywear. I thrifted these pink jeans two sizes bigger than my normal jeans, and utilized my Bella Band to wear these pants clear through my pregnancy. Even a                         few weeks before giving birth I was still styling these colored jeans with comfort and flare.colored denim, pink jeans, maternity fashion, pregnancy style

A few of my favorite maternity outfits I barely looked pregnant in, because, of how I decided to dress my ever expanding baby bump. High waists, forgiving fabrics, and belts can be your friend while dressing during a pregnancy.high waisted denim skirt, maternity fashion

However, embracing your pregnant shape can be quite flattering too. The last two maternity/pregnancy outfits I am going to show you I wore right at the end, and I didn’t shy away from form fitting fashions.pattern mixing, maternity fashion, pregnancy style, rain boots

They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but shoes keep her strutting around stylishly. They really can make or break an outfit. I want to show you some iconic shoes, and today’s interpretation of them. Now, some of these shoes will be amazing and I would be proud to wear them out and about. However, prepare yourself. Some of the shoe interpretations are just plain horrendous.

Cinderella had a fairy godmother that waived a magic wand to prepare her for a ball. Her look was made complete with glass footwear.

Now, I found the following shoes after searching for Cinderella Shoes. They are from a wedding website, however I wouldn’t wear them to my own Cinderella ball or wedding for that matter. Cinderella shoes, glass slippers

I also never have or never will wear the lucite “prom” shoes either. You know what I mean. Huge platforms combined with spiky clear heels that you can see your feet perspire in. In addition to being one of the top most blister inducing shoes known to man. Ouch! I will cram my foot into my old pointe shoes, and dance a full length version of Cinderella before I wear those shoes.

Next up is the shoes with transportation powers. Yes, I’m talking about Dorothy’s iconic ruby slippers.

While my home may not be in Kansas, and my three best friends aren’t a scarecrow, tin man, and a cowardly lion I would wear a Louboutin version of this sparkly red shoe in a heart beat if someone bought me them.

Now, for another pair of red shoes I would wear if I didn’t get danced to my death.

Are there any iconic shoes you would want to wear a modern day version of? My husband personally would love a pair of these Nike Hyperdunks.

Have you seen Sydney yet? Yes, that Sydney. Sydney, of the Daybook, has been looking fabulous during her pregnancy thus far. It can’t be a surprise that she is my next pregnancy fashion blogger. Check out #1 and #2 looking lovely as well.

Sydney knows how to liven up even the tiredest of pregnancy fatigue induced faces. Apply a little fuchsia lipstick. Doesn’t she look fabulous?pregnancy fashion checkered dress

Bright Accessories

Bright Accessories are another way to put a little pep in your step when you are tired. Here Sydney’s turquoise necklace is a nice touch with her black and white checkered dress.

Just because you may be dealing with pregnancy fatigue, and all you want to wear is pajamas does not mean you have to sacrifice style for comfort. Try wearing a soft blousy top, and leggings or stretchy jeans. It is ok to leave the 5 inch heels at home for a day too.

I want to thank the three fabulous bloggers I have featured in this series for letting me use their pictures. I also want to thank my readers for putting up with a narrowly focused topic for What They Wore the last three weeks. Next week I’m doing DIY focused posts. If you have one you would like me to consider email me at danie@noguiltfashion.com

I missed out on Omaha’s Fashion Week, but when I knew I didn’t work last night I knew I would hit up a couple events for Fashion’s Night Out. Now, I know I live in Nebraska. I didn’t think we would match the likes of FNO in New York, but we did have a few local retailers that had small events that packed a great discount and a lot of fun. A few of the national brand stores had special offers too.

They had tweeted that Gap would be offering 40% off one regularly priced item for those that checked in on Foursquare from 6-close. Nate needed a new pair of jeans, so I knew this was the perfect place to kick things off.

Scout Dry Goods & Trade, Fashion's Night OutThey had me at vintage sale, and courted me with some of the best second hand items I’ve seen. I loved the relaxed vibe of the store. I took a bunch of pictures that I’ll put together in a more in-depth look at the store and its strong mission statement. I tried on several things, but it is getting hard to judge what will fit me this fall. After all, I should be having this baby within the next month! However, I didn’t walk away from fashion’s night out empty handed. I purchased a J Crew wool dress, watercolored skirt, and vintage shorts. All of which I got at an amazing price, and plan to wear with my favorite colorful tights from We Love Colors. I’m now officially excited for fall fashion.

The next few weeks on What They Wore I will be switching things up a little bit. I will be featuring a few of my fellow pregnant bloggers, and how they have shown off some amazing pregnancy fashion.

Megan, of Chasing Davies, is my first pregnancy fashion, featured blogger. She is having a little boy, and has already put together a stellar nursery inspiration mood board. I stumbled upon her blog after finding her on a style/fashion blogger map put together by Rose ala Mode. (check out the button on my sidebar) I was looking for bloggers within about a 5 hour car drive radius. Enough with the rambling. Let me get down to why I chose her for this feature.

Color blocking is featured as a way of dressing that can be very slimming. For the pregnant fashionista it can also be a very cute way of framing your little bump.

Wearing your button ups with a growing bump can be really tough. Most women have a tough time buttoning up their tops shortly after they get a positive pregnancy test. A cute way to style them during pregnancy is to tie them up as a crop top over your belly. Meggy did this while pattern mixing. Isn’t is a cute look? I wore this style with my husband’s button up, because, mine wouldn’t fit over my expanded chest line.

Adjusting Waistlines

This is one of the joys of pregnancy. To quote this fashionista, “Getting to hike my skirts way up.  This one was practically sitting right under my boobs.” I personally have made quite a few pieces work quite far into this pregnancy by hiking them up higher than normal. Once you can’t do this and can’t get it zipped; try a Bella Band and don’t tuck in your blouse.

Remember to check out Chasing Davies, and follow along with her adorable pregnancy fashion journey while waiting to catch a glimpse of her cute bundle of joy.
