2nd Trimester Weekend Packing List for the Fashionista

Are you a fashionista in her 2nd trimester and feel the every morning struggle of what to wear? Now you have a weekend trip and need to pack. I am right here with you!

I thought it was hard getting dressed before I was pregnant. NO WAY! Being into fashion and caring about what you wear while being pregnant is a real challenge. I work at a large fashion corporation's head quarters where everyday is a fashion show. Everyone notices and comments about what you are wearing. Let's say I've been real stressed since I started showing! I have a couple go-to office outfits, but now I need weekend outfits and I want to change it up a little if I can...

I always start with some inspiration photos. You might have noticed there isn't a ton out there for "on trend" maternity photos. You have to rely on your celebs and hope a good fashion blogger gets pregnant! Here is what I came up with... It's fall, but I am visiting the northern California bay area, so shouldn't be cold yet.

Below are the items I will be packing for my trip...

1. Leith Ruched Body Con (Nordstrom) / 2. Plaid Shirt (Nordstrom) / 3. Adidas 'Superstar' (Nordstrom) / 4. Leather Motorcycle Jacket (LAMARQUE) / 5. Long Sleeve Maternity Crew Tee-Black & White (Gap) / 6. Black Maternity Jeans (Gap) / 7. Ponte Dress (Cupcakes & Cashmere ON SALE) / 8. Red Jacket (Nordstrom) / 9. Black Bootie (Topshop) / 10. Hat (Free People) / 11. Statement Sunglasses (Tom Ford) / 12. Shift Dress (Nordstrom) / 13. White Moto Jacket (Nordstrom) / 14. 'Rockstud' Flats (Valentino

Key Points
-Hopefully you have invested in some maternity basics, I would recommend neutral colors.
-Being pregnant might force you to wear different clothes and flatter shoes, but there are no limits to the accessories you can wear! I only listed sunglasses above, but go through all your scarves, handbags, and sunglasses, now is the time to put them to use!
