I never want to spend money on clothing I am only going to be wearing a few months! However, it can make all the difference in your pregnancy to find a few things that make you feel comfortable. I decided this go around to buy just a few basics to pair along with what I already had on hand, and repeat throughout my second and third trimester. So here ya go….a simple maternity capsule for warmer months!


Ruched bodycon dress – Non maternity cotton dress, but if you go a size bigger it works!

The most comfortable tank dress and stretch headband

At home I usually am a jeans and tee kind of girl, but through a summer pregnancy, nothing feels good around the waist line so I have pretty much stuck to a wardrobe of cotton dresses and flowy skirts. My kids always think I am dressed up to go somewhere;)

  • You are the cutest pregnant lady! I love your capsule wardrobe! I wish I had invested more in my clothes when I was pregnant instead of forcing myself to wear the same 1-2 things again and again. I think I would have enjoyed pregnancy more if I wasn’t always squeezing into too small clothes haha.


  • You look stunning! Your clothing picks are lovely, I especially love that last yellow dress.
    I pretty much exclusively wear skirts and dresses (I don’t find pants nearly as comfortable) and so I have managed to wear my “normal” wardrobe for all of my pregnancies so far, with a couple of maternity pieces added in-but what I did NOT do well at all the first time I gave birth was postpartum clothing. I discovered that for my mental wellbeing, it is much better for me to have lovely and comfortable clothes that work well in the first few weeks and months postpartum. So, for my second child, a big focus of mine wasn’t so much pregnancy clothes as it was making sure that I’d have a nice capsule of nursing-friendly, lovely clothes (and good nursing bras, instead of nursing tanks) to wear postpartum. It’s amazing how that helped me in the fog of the first few months after giving birth!
