Since leaving my corporate job and embracing that work-from-home mom life, my skirt collection has seriously dwindled. I used to be a pencil skirt addict, but these days I am more about casual dresses and denim! But when I saw this adorable gingham skirt, I knew it was a piece I could use in my casual wardrobe. So, I immediately scooped it up and created this midi skirt pregnancy look. I felt so retro-inspired and I loved it!
This adorable button-front skirt is non-maternity but has an elastic back, making it so comfortable for pregnancy and beyond. The buttons lay nicely and don’t pull at all, which I love. It is also fully-lined and super-lightweight. You could easily wear it into the heat of the summer and into fall!
To style it for pregnancy, I sized up to a large. Then I just moved the waistband to smallest part of me, which is right below the bust line! If you aren’t expecting, I’d suggest still wearing it at the smallest part of you, at your natural waistline. This type of skirt is very flattering for a variety of shapes and sizes! It just floats away from the body. Also the length is perfect. It’s a true midi length but hits me closer to knee length because of the bump (and my height – 5″7′!)!
To emphasize my waistline (and bump!) even more, I then knotted a tee right over the waist line of my skirt. Again, I’d recommend the same style for those not expecting! It would just be a little lower, closer to your belly button placement! 😉 But it will still be figure-flattering!
Lastly, I have to call out my head scarf! I’ve been obsessed lately, and this one is super-affordable at under $4! If you want more scarf ideas, be sure to check out my eight ways to wear small scarves post!
