Remember on Friends when Rachel was pregnant? Back then I swore that I would channel her style whenever I went through my own pregnancy. This outfit in particular always stuck out in my mind. Old ladies gasped at the sight of her bump poking out under her shirt but I loved it. Fake baby bump or not, she had some sick style.
I will forever be team Jen, everything about her is just lovely, so it makes sense that I would fixate even on her fake pregnancy style, ha.
This is the kind of outfit you will find me in on a regular basis, pregnant or not. Band t-shirts are my go-to since I have about a million of them. (small exaggeration, but I get one from every concert I go to, so I do own a lot!). Obviously this isn’t an authentic Nirvana concert t-shirt, but I’ll pretty much buy any Nirvana T I see, especially if they have a fun twist like the back of this one does.
Can we also talk about this bag?! Like it or not ladies, fringe is in. There are several ways to attack this trend because, I know better than anyone, it’s not for everyone. I mean, I’m not going to wear a fringe crop top while pregnant, as much as I may want to! ha. So get your hands on some fringe accessories if you want to try the trend but aren’t sure if fringed garments are for you just yet. Take baby steps. In all honesty, when I saw fringe was coming back all I could think of was my mom’s friend who has a heinous fringed brown leather jacket from the 70’s she still wears on a regular basis (before it came back into style, if you can even say that it did come back). So I knew I wasn’t going to be on board 100%, but I saw this bag and realized it’s the perfect way to play with the trend without trying too hard.
Gorgeous right? This is a fun look, definitely more casual but still very my style. And to be honest, I love the looks of disbelief I get from all those hoity-toity old women who wore turtle necks and sweat pants through their pregnancies “back in their day.” Sorry Blanch, not for me! Avert your eyes if you don’t like it. ;]
