Outfits Lately with Flats (non-maternity, but bump friendly!)

Maternity Outfits with Flats

Bedding info including headboard, night stands & duvet can be found in this blog post

As many of us have traded heels for flats these days, I wanted to show a few recent outfits that are very comfortable but still feel pulled-together! Everything here is actually not maternity sizing, but happens to be bump friendly even in my 3rd. trimester. These also feature a few sale pieces that I showed last month, mixed and matched for cooler weather outfits as we head into Fall.

1. Chic Mixed Knits

For meetings, a coffee date, or whenever you want to feel a little more sophisticated! On the bottom left, showing how I often add a hair elastic to a lightweight sweater or tee for a twist-front look (old styling trick from this post). A long trench or knit blazer layered on top always adds instant polish for me, and a printed shoe helps tie together multiple solid neutral colors. I can’t fit into jeans these days, otherwise that would be a comfortable alternative here instead of my ribbed skirt for a less formal-looking outfit!

This midi trench coat (see my review) was one of my favorite finds earlier this year, and one I’d recommend in both tan and black. It is definitely a long length, draped jacket, so it’s not for someone looking for a short trench. I initially planned on hemming it 2″ but over time have really grown to like the longer length!

For a shorter length drapey trench coat, check out this A+F one in multiple colors!

2. Playful print + platforms

For this in-between Summer to Fall weather, I mixed fabric weights and textures here with a soft, fluffier sweater, a more airy pleated chiffon skirt, and leather espadrilles.

3. Monochrome mom-on-the-go

A very basic outfit, but one that you’re most likely to find me in these days for comfort and practicality! A knee-length dress + duster cardigan creates clean, long lines, and keeping it in the same color family helps it look streamlined. Typically I’d be wearing my staple non-maternity leith ruched dress, but just outgrew it during these last few weeks of pregnancy!

I really wanted a white bump-friendly ruched dress, and while this one isn’t perfect, I’ve been wearing it a ton. I would’ve preferred a better quality cotton material and you do need skin-toned undergarments or shapewear since the white is on the sheer side. I’m always wearing my maternity support shorts anyways which works as a good under layer here. What I DO like about this dress is that the overall fit is pretty good on a shorter frame, including shoulder straps that aren’t too long and neckline not too low – two issues I have with many non-petite tank dresses!

See a similar dress at Target maternity (under $25) or Pink Blush maternity (under $50).

    Hi Jean! I love your style and seeing your stories about you and your beautiful family 😊

    I absolutely love the trench coat on you! Are you able to layer with the xxs petite or is it more snug/fitted? I tried on a petite classic trench coat in xxs but I couldn’t layer underneath it (too tight) and was wondering if the long soft trench one would be the same. Thanks! ❤️

      Hi Rona, thank you for your kind message! And I’m sorry for the delayed reply – it’s more of a fitted lightweight coat so sizing may be similar to the one you already tried on and couldn’t layer under.

    Jean, are the Soludos espadrilles small wearing your normal size 5? I read that they run small and wasn’t sure if you encountered this? Thanks!

      Hi there – yes I’m wearing my normal size, I didn’t size up but you could go a half size up for comfort. They were not the most comfortable in the beginning and needed breaking in for me, I’ve had them for a few years now though!

    Can you review the TDE bag in this post?

      I have loved all of their bags – great size, durable material that’s easy to wipe clean, and versatile design with the removable crossbody strap. This one is a nice shape too but my one comment is the walnut brown color is harder for me to pair, and black or a true tan would be more versatile.

    Hi Jean! How do you get your hair bun to stay so full and just the right amount of height? Do you have a tutorial for this?

    I love that Uniqlo pleated skirt! Did you have to get it hemmed?

      Hi Lynn, I didn’t get this skirt hemmed but it’s old. It’s actually longer but I roll the waistband up sometimes to wear it shorter like in this photo! Uniqlo no longer has a short one like this but the H&M one is a similar length and a great alternative.
