i have so enjoyed putting together different looks each day around this twin baby bump (that is, when i’m feeling up for giving my pajamas a bit of a break!) as well as the adventure of getting dressed these days. for my past pregnancies, i have always loved making my own regular wardrobe work with the bump for as long as possible, but i think a combination of this being my fourth ginormous baby bump, and the fact that i have doubled in size far faster this round thanks to those two baby girls, i embraced several maternity pieces much earlier on this time around. and i have to tell you, while i often think pajamas might be the most comfortable bet, i feel so much better about myself and my day (and i’m shockingly more productive) when i do put in the effort to get dressed.
i am so excited to partner with hatch collection today, to share two maternity looks i put together from their beautiful new spring collection. i have actually had several pieces from hatch in my wardrobe throughout the years since they first launched, about six years ago, when i was pregnant with samson and eleanor was almost one! one of the things i love about them is how timeless each piece can feel, and how they can work not just for a pregnancy bump, but before and after as well. i especially appreciate that a lot of their pieces are nursing friendly, flowy tops or button up dresses so i can wear them after this pregnancy and into the nursing two babies stage as well!
for my first look, i paired the flowy cecelia top with the nina trouser, both in the terracotta color. lately, i’ve really liked wearing similar shades of the same color, and this top is so so beautiful and comfortable in person, the photos don’t do it justice. it will be a major staple throughout summer in my closet since i can wear it after pregnancy, too!
and obviously, i had to get the elenore dress for several reasons. ;) maybe the first having something to do with the name and the second being that it comes in my favorite color, yellow! with investment pieces like this, i like the idea of being able to dress it up or down, and the fact that it has buttons so i can nurse comfortably in it once the baby girls are here is also a major plus. i put the ruby top underneath it, but it’s another piece that works so well on it’s own dressed up or down and the fluttery ruffled sleeves are so fun.
and a side note, something fun you can do on the hatch collection site, is see what many of the pieces look like with or without a baby bump, with their bump slider!
part of me can’t wait for May to get here so i can meet these baby girls finally (and also, i confess, sleep comfortably on my stomach again), but the other part of me is really just trying to savor these last weeks with this big baby bump. even the uncomfortable moments, because i really believe that pregnancy and carrying a baby or two is a special thing, and i’m one of those weird people who always misses being pregnant when i’m not!
thank you so much to hatch collection for sponsoring this blog post!
