As part of the Maternity Series, I thought it would be fun to bring you some fashion posts, featuring someone who is currently pregnant. So I would like to introduce to you my friend Erin Jones, who is currently 24 weeks pregnant. Erin will be joining us a few times over the next bit as she styles her bump through pregnancy. Here’s a look she did at 22 weeks and what she had to say about it.
One of the hardest thing about a changing figure is that you go from knowing what looks good on your body (the same body you’ve been dressing for years) to having those go-to styles not be as flattering as they once were.
I’ve always had an hour glass figure and been on the short side, I find that tailored, shorter tops that hit just below the waist, usually look best on me. Being at the stage in my pregnancy were I’m still not ‘showing’ but rather feeling a little bit ‘fluffy’, I’ve been wearing longer and looser tops than normal, that with my rapidly growing bust line, can make me feel as if I look sloppy.
What’s so nice about wearing a tailored leather jacket is that it still gives the illusion of a waist line. It lets me wear a looser top but not feel shapeless and it’s light weight enough to wear all day as a layering piece.

Can’t wait to see what Erin shares with us next and to watch her cute little bump grow!
