I only have a few requirements for my maternity clothing- they have to be fashionable and comfortable. The uncomfortableness of an expanding belly is already enough stress on my body; no need to add uncomfortable clothing to the mix.
Being a pregnant mom in New York City requires you to be on your feet and on-the-go most of the time. Add an active toddler to the mix and I am always chasing after something.
Rosie Pope knows exactly what it's like to be a pregnant New York City mom chasing after a toddler. With her third child on the way, she was even more sympathetic to my need for comfortable and fashionable everyday clothes.
The "everyday" outfit she handpicked for me is the epitome of fashionable yet comfortable.
The Pret Pant Classic are made from heavy-duty Euro-stretch twill - meaning that it is a pant that is both forgiving and shaping. It also has a super slimming straight leg that is perfect for work or play. This is seriously the chicest pair of maternity pants available. One of my favorite features of the pants is the seamless waist that comes above the belly for extra support as your belly expands.
The Pocket Front Tunic features a fold-over collar and eight-button closure with a patch bust pocket, straight hem and self-fabric tie. The sleeves feature button-tabs that gather two-button cuffs. This shirt is very light weight and comfortable to wear. The tie below the bust is perfect to accentuate your belly.
This outfit is perfect for a day just about anywhere to spend time with the ones you love!
The Pret Pant is available in three colors and retails for $168. The Pocket-Front Tunic is available in two colors and retails for $125. Both items can be purchased at www.RosiePopeMaternity.com. To learn more about Rosie Pope maternity, please visit her website.
