30 weeks pregnant OOTD

Whoa. That didn’t take very long to reach 30 weeks, did it? Thought I’d show you a quick OOTD and the details of it all.

Also, check out the size of that pinecone bebs found on our forest adventure. It was so heavy! 

I’m so happy we finally have healthy air to breath. Never thought in a trillion years that would be something I’d take for granted. We were basically surrounded by wildfires for weeks on end. Today and yesterday we got more of a break and the AQI is reading green! Aka absolutely “normal” and healthy to head outside. I’m hoping it lasts.

Like my new backpack? Gaston Luga is a Swedish backpack retailer located in the heart of Stockholm. Though I have to admit, I wish there were more pockets on the outside of the pack too, for my water bottle. They have a small keychain hanging from it, where I can clip my car keys on and the back of the backpack there’s a little slot that’s big enough to fit my phone for easy access. 

Also huge shoutout to PinkBlush who has given me a few pieces of clothing (actually, all sweaters to be honest- my choices!) throughout this pregnancy. I’ve never been disappointed with their quality of clothing, not just maternity clothes – they also have regular women’s clothes too. Hot tip: sign up for their e-mails because I swear it’s weekly when they send me (and anyone who is signed up to their mailing list) a 40% off coupon for one item, or 30% off their entire site. It’s fantastic. I ended up buying two sweaters (which you’ll see one of them in tomorrow’s blog post) and wear them both often.

PinkBlush Cozy Maternity cardigan OOTD

Holy flippin’ cow I just realized there’s only 2 weeks and a few days until I’m out of the second trimester (meaning honeymoon phase of being pregnant, meaning tons of energy and feeling somewhat great overall) is over. That means…it’s back to square one: fatigued, low energy, more acid reflux and little sleep during the night. I felt my energy droop down last week and I had Scott look into when the 3rd trimester starts….week 27. Oof! Almost there. Knew it!

Here I’m wearing another PinkBlush Maternity sweater (gifted) that is totally just like a regular cardigan. It’s super soft and drapes perfectly over the shoulders. It’s in one of my favourite colours: rust, and I’ve gotten two compliments on it already, one being from my Mom lol.

If you want to shop for it on PinkBlush website search for the: rust chenille soft knit dolman cardigan 👌🏻. It comes in 3 colours & I’m wearing a size small. Thanks to PinkBlush for sending it over to me.

Where I buy maternity clothes

I suppose one of the most signature looks I have could also be classified as loungewear. I like to keep things pretty casual. I’m all about comfort.

I thought I’d show you where I’ve been shopping for the majority of my pregnancy (and I’m also including the places that have sent me stuff because some of the items are truly one’s I’d buy with my own money). I mean. Why promote it if I wouldn’t buy it with my own money, right?

Either way, my pal from back home, Bobbi requested I do a favourite store post, for maternity clothing. I’m a bit late to the game as I’m pretty sure she requested me to do this ages ago.

A lot of the stores here are definitely much more accesible here to me, as every store imaginable almost ships to USA residents. In Canada places are bad for customs (I’ve yet to see that here in the USA, maybe iut’s not even a thing? Can anyone claifry?)

Okay 28 weeks into the pregnancy. Wearing a ton of maternity clothing now, but still wearing a lot of non-maternity tops that I’ve purchased from Forever 21, and Target over the years – empire/flowy tops are my jam, and definitely come in handy with a belly.

For the pants, I’ve opted for only 2 maternity pairs, and I purchased them both from H&M. One is a pair of Mama Skinny Jeans ($3-0) and the other is a pair of $12 leggings. I ain’t gonna be squishin’ the belly with pre-preg jeans and be uncomfortable, when I have pants that literally go right up to my boobs. There’s no question about it – it’s comfort gold.

None of my jackets will zip up,  I fret that come January/February I’ll be super chilly but my husband suggested I just wear his larger jackets. Score. I’m not going to be buying a winter coat down here when I can simply wear his (for as long as I can). Then I’ll just have to get smart about the layering with scarves to keep my front warm.

The majority of my go-to shops for maternity wear: Target, H&M, Forever 21, and PinkBlush. I’m not one to spend a ton of money on clothing, because I almost always spill something on myself or ruin it quickly, and I don’t even go to fancy-pants places to invest in gorgeous silky tops for instance. Like I said, I have my comfort zone and I stick to it.

Here’s my new top from PinkBlush it’s the Black Striped Maternity Knot Sweater, and it’s super cozy and soft feeling.

Wearing:
PinkBlush Black Striped Maternity Knot Sweater ($36)
H&M Mama Super Skinny Maternity Jeans ($35)
Slippers + Starbucks (lol)

A few days ago I took Alfie to the park, just for a change of scenery. Oh, and random but someone asked me if I’m due soon. Does that mean she thought I was 9 months pregnant already? Hmmmmmm……..wonderful.

Disclaimer: Huge thanks to my pal Megan for hooking me up with PinkBlush to be an ambassador with them too! As a PinkBlush Ambassador I get 2 points for 2 pieces of clothing to review. Each time I post = 1 point. I did not receive monetary compensation for posting about the brand.
