I love casual outfits and this black shirt is such a basic – it is soo so soft and super lightweight so its perfect for spring. I have been trying to wear regular (non maternity) clothes so that you guys can still get outfit ideas! So these jeans are regular jeans, I just have a literal bungie type thing holding them up for me haha. I really haven’t wanted to buy any maternity jeans because I hate that I wouldn’t wear them post baby! Maybe that is crazy of me but for now I will stick to my bungie method.

Below is a tutorial I made for this hairstyle.. it is super quick and easy but I love it for days I am in a hurry and still want to have a cute/different style. I basically just show you how I do the braid and how I do my beachy waves and what products I use, so check it out below! xoxo

      Aw thank you Mel that is so sweet! It gets kind of difficult to style the bump so I am glad you like the outfits so far :)

    Can you please tell us how you do the bungie thing? I don’t want to buy maternity jeans either!

    • amber March 13, 2014 at 4:10 pm Permalink

      Its just this little contraption my husband made out of an old bungie haha I basically just loop it around the opening that the button goes it and then hook it on the button! A rubber band would also work but for me the rubber bands were a little to tight so I basically just created a bigger rubber band!

    I absolutely love your shoes!! I’m definitely going to try this hairstyle!!

    Your skin is GLOWING in that video! Must be the pregnancy glow (not that it doesn’t look amazing all the time!) Loved the post :)

    • amber March 13, 2014 at 4:13 pm Permalink

      Aw thanks Annie!! I am glad you think so because my skin has been so dry! So I am glad you can’t tell in the video :)

  16. Natasha March 11, 2014 at 3:46 pm Permalink

    Although I love the colour, I always thought you weren’t supposed to paint your nails while pregnant.

    • amber March 13, 2014 at 4:14 pm Permalink

      You can paint your nails while pregnant! :) You just can’t use certain products that could enter the blood stream or that have certain chemicals but with nail polish you are good!

  17. Aubry March 11, 2014 at 4:08 pm Permalink

    Gorgeous simple look! Love the lip color also!

    Just an idea for your jeans as your belly grows, I used just a regular hair elastic, hook it to the button, loop it through the hole and back on the button. It worked amazingly as my belly got bigger and i didn’t want to spend the money on something I wasn’t going to wear post baby. Just an idea. :)

    • amber March 13, 2014 at 4:15 pm Permalink

      Aubry!! Fab idea! I actually tried a rubber band but mine was too new/tight so I need to try a loser one! And yeah buying maternity stuff is no fun knowing you will only wear it for like three months!

  18. Fashion Snag March 11, 2014 at 4:28 pm Permalink

    Love your shoes and hair!

    I love all your hair styles and after trying the Blake Lively, I’m thinking this would be easier for a newbie. Love seeing that cute baby bump!

    • amber March 13, 2014 at 4:17 pm Permalink

      Thanks Adri!! and yeah if the Blake Lively one was difficult start with this til you master the fishtail and then the BL one will be a sinch! :) xo

    You look so cute with your baby belly. Do you know what you’re having. I can’t imagine you with a girl. Hopefully he/she will have your amazing hair. Love the video, the braid idea and your look.
