Last week, I popped over to Marina’s apartment in Brooklyn– she’s due any day now to have her second baby! I love her pregnancy style, it’s really simple and it’s all things she can wear again after she has her baby. She told me that she never really invested in anything “maternity” but instead just bought bigger sizes and wore her husbands clothes.

A few of her style essentials?

– A drawstring pant. These ones from 1.61 are unisex, they are like a cool mom maternity khaki.
Equpiment blouses in a size medium or large. They will look cool and oversize so you can wear them even at your bgigest. Afterwards, they are good to have when breastfeeding.
– A sexy flat. Your ankles will start to swell. No matter how cute or chunky the heel is, it’s not going to work.

    She looks lovely but her bump is tiny! Mine looked that big at 4 months… so draw string pants and large shirts were fine until I was about 6 months preggers, then clothes looked more like tent dresses and at least some pregnancy clothes were a must.
    Also, personally I just didn’t want to wear pregnancy clothes once I was done breast feeding. :-)

  • I love her cute maternity style! That ruffled shirt is fabulous!

    Mouais, d’expérience, on remet pas les habits après, même si on a choisi des vêtements pas spécialement dans les marques pour femmes enceintes. Le fait de les avoir si souvent mis enceinte, on se sent toujours grosse dedans, après accouchement ^^. Enfin, moi, ça m’a fait ça pour les 2 grossesses. Du coup, les blouses Equipement à 2000$ pièce, bof bof. Surtout quand t’as le môme qui te régurgite dessus au début ou quand t’as les seins qui fuient (oui, c’est super gras et ça tâche !! ^^) (je veux dire, on se dit la vérité, quoi ^^)

  • Marina- what a classy lady! Her style is impeccable. Great rainy Monday post!

    I agree that her bump is especially tiny. She is super lovely, but I don’t want women to get too into the idea of being able to wear size medium or large shirts as the answer to maternity wear. Having been pregnant three times, I can tell you that most women will not be able to do that. Only the tiniest of the tiny can do that, and they’re very lucky. Also, silk blouses for breastfeeding made me laugh out loud. They’ll be ruined in seconds by the milk that (sorry, girls) leaks!

  • Thank you for pointing this out! Marina looks lovely but is obviously a tiny tiny person to begin with. I wear a size large in Equipment blouses NOT pregnant, so definitely would not work for me or most women.

    Also, laughing about wearing silk shirts when nursing…not to mention baby spit up too.

  • Inspirant pour une prochaine grossesse!

  • Soon, Garance will have a baby ;)

  • I love the pictures but at leats in my case right before giving birth, I went from 120 Lbs to 160 Lbs and I looked very different from Marina… I did avoid maternity wear but for trousers. Still quite different sillouette.

    J’adore son collier! Je suppose que “Blaise” est le prénom de son premier enfant… j’adore le fait de porter le prénom de ses enfants au autour de son cou, auprès de soi tout le temps.

    Oooh quelle classe ! Je suppose qu’elle n’a pas pris beaucoup de poids ; c’est ce qui s’est passé pour mes 2 grossesses et permet d’éviter les déprimants vêtements de grossesse en portant des leggings avec les chemises de mon homme ou salopette avec débardeurs et une belle robe ethnique quand il allait être un peu plus chic.

  • Will be a beautiful mother!

  • I totally agree, love her style!! Check out my maternity style on my blog

  • Hi Garance. Nice post. I am pregnant myself and would love to see more of blog posts about pregnant women/mom’s styles. Thanks!

    Her necklace! It’s got my name. :)

  • Every pregnant girl is the most beautiful woman in the world.

  • I loove the photos and how superbly relaxed Marina looks, also the embroidered dress is beautiful! I know matching mother daughter outfits tend to be horrific, but I can see Marina in Elisa Sednaouis capsule collection Little-a-like quite well. For a glimpse click Sunny side up! Alex

  • I don’t understand why some women absolutely want to avoid maternity clothes. We don’t live in former times when you could only get ugly things! There are many brands that create absolutely nice, stylish and comfortable maternity clothes.
    I guess for most pregnant women it is impossible to wear just bigger sized jeans. I tried with my husbands jeans during pregnancy and it was absolutely uncomfortable and impossible in the last months. Invest in a nice maternity jeans, it’s worth the money!
    And: To wear “normal” clothes in a bigger size does not look nice when you have a huge bump, e.g. T-Shirts look like a tent on you.

    Anyway, Garance I really like your blog and I’m a very loyal reader :-) Cheers!

  • I agree with you. I’ve never been pregnant, but i worked in h&m and i talked to lots of pregnant woman about how great are these clothes. It doesn’t matter if you wear a bigger size, it will still cut your stomach, simply because the waist line is right in the middle of your bump.

    This post made me laugh. She looks absolutely lovely, but I am 40 weeks pregnant and not that big, but way, way too huge to get into anything that is merely a size or two up. I even grew out of some of my maternity clothes. My uniform these days is stretchy dresses. Thank god for ruching.

  • Personnellement, je suis assez mince et je n’ai pas pris énormément de poids pendant mes deux grossesses, mais jusqu’à ce que je craque sur un jean Zara Mum au centre commercial d’en bas et que je casse ma tirelire pour quelques basiques chez Formes, j’étais au bord de la déprime autour de mon 5e mois. Une fois ces “basiques” qui m’allaient en poche, je me sentais à nouveau en mesure de sortir et je n’avais que des compliments sur ces vêtements-là… Pour les hauts, en revanche, je me suis débrouillée avec du standard, porté ceinturé, ceinture-de-grossessé, moulant, etc. mais pour les bas, je ne me sentais bien dans RIEN passé un certain stade, sauf les vêtements de grossesse.
    Et d’expérience, comme le disent pas mal de lectrices, moi aussi tout ce que j’ai acheté pendant ma grossesse en pensant dur comme fer les remettre après, ça a fini chez les copines ou sur eBay, ça n’allait jamais.
    Marina est magnifique en tout cas !
