Vintage Maternity & what to wear

 I'd though I would share some tips on how to wear vintage while your pregnant.
Regular maternity wear is so pricey, I believe its because its called MATERNITY & they use more material on certain items.

Dressing in the summer can be quite easy, as long as it isn't too long or polyester.
The heat will get to you.
Here are some of my picks for maternity wear.

1. Vintage Mexican Dress
(this a photo of my belly during our maternity project)

Mexican Dresses are great for maternity, since there tent dress, 
nice & flowy, room for your growing belly. 
You can always belt it at high waist.
This is a great etsy find...for $39 at TigerlilyFrocks

2. Caftan 
$60 found at needsgoodhome
another light weight dress, with room for your belly to grow.

3. Skirts
You can do cotton skirts, full skirts, maxi skirts as long as it has an elastic waist 
and sits on your high waist. Skirts are easy to pair with tanks or blouses.

$20.71 found at MaPtitChouette

$56 found at FancyThatVintage

Boho Maxi Skirt/ tube dress 
2 outfits in 1...you can belt it at high waist or wear under your belly.
$15 found at Jewelry601

4. Smock Dress
Easy & comfy to wear...just be sure there is enough belly space.
$35 found at ramblinvintage

5. Sequin
Who says you can't wear sequin while pregnant!
Great for a night out on the town or a fancy dinner, you can pair a sequin jacket with your maternity shorts or maternity skinny jeans. Just add a tank underneath...what a great way to show off your belly
