Dressing for Two

My friend Kerry is pregnant with her second baby within 6 months of having her first bambino. You are a brave woman! Not that I have any experience, but Kerry wanted tips on how to still look cute while cultivating new life. And since it seems every time I turn around another friend is with child, I thought Kerry probably isn't the only one asking. (Alert: Mrs. Fonty and Mrs. Cookie, this is in no way a hint or eluding to me being or within months of being pregnant.)

The DayBook follows most adorable girl and her sweet family. She has tons of pictures from when she was pregnant to use as inspiration. And the best part is, all her clothes are super affordable! No lusting after Cupcakes and Cashmere's $800 Porenza Schouler duds. And really, if you are only wearing something for a few months, you do not want to break the bank. Here are some of my favorite of her pregnancy wears:

The vest is only $35! And the top is not maternity, so it could be worn after the bump is a six-pack again

Cinch it!
The wedges make this outfit

This look is great because all the expensive pieces you can wear post baby too.

The brits really know how to do maternity. When looking for items online, I kept coming across the maternity lines from Top Shop & Dorothy Perkins. Adorable and Affordable.
