For most, being pregnant is not an easy thing on your body. I am one of those rare exceptions of women that actually LOVE being pregnant; I enjoy the kicks, the “glow”, the weirdos touching my belly at the grocery store…okay, maybe not the latter, but I really do enjoy it. My closet, however, does not love me to be pregnant. I cry every time I walk into my closet filled with the latest trends and SOB when I can’t get them to fit my ever-growing-belly. Finding fashion forward clothes that are flattering to your bump (and well, mountains of chest and bubbly behind) are just as daunting. When I was pregnant with my first baby, I was teaching Kindergarten, so I had to find things to dress my bump DAILY. That was such a task. When Friday rolled around, I just couldn’t wait to get into my yoga pants and husband’s t-shirt to stay in them all weekend. That just isn’t like me, people. I LOVE dressing up, and I love fashion.
So, here’s where pregnancy gets really fun. You’ve heard of these on-trend boxes that are sent to your front door filled with the latest and greatest to fit your OWN body type and style? Yes. They’re awesome. Have you heard of the one that can be delivered to your front door to dress your growing bump!? FINALLY! Pregnant women can rejoice (am I right!?). Enter BUMPstyle Box.
BUMPstyle Box is a baby bump boutique with styles hand selected just for YOU by a personal stylist. To get started, you fill out a profile that tells your stylist all about you. They even look at your Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook to get to know your style a little better. Each box will include a variety of dresses, pants/jeans, shoes and accessories, and then are delivered straight to your front door via UPS. Once receiving your box, you have 5 days to try out what’s in your box styling it with items you already have. Can I get a YAY for no dressing rooms!!!! Want to know even more great news? There are no shipping fees either way, and you will only be charged for what you keep from the box.
My stylist, Hannah, wrote me the sweetest hand-written note telling me about each piece and why she chose it for me. It’s such a personal experience, and I felt like she was standing in my closet with me telling me that it looked fabulous (even when I feel fat because I scarfed down 3 donuts for breakfast). It’s like she’s my little magic genie.
Here are some of the items that came in my BUMPstyle Box. I was seriously in love with ALL of them, and wanted so badly to hang them all in my closet.
Here is how I styled a few of the items sent to me.
I have a few more of the looks that I want to share with you, so be sure and check back for the rest of this month’s BUMPstyle box. Believe me, I’ll be getting a new one next month when my bump (and butt) are a lot bigger. I’m SO lucky I found this early in my pregnancy this time around.
Second best news to pregnancy box? They also have nursing fashion. 4th Trimester style: I love it!
