Olivia Trewatha started her blog, Corporate Catwalk, because she wanted to inspire the modern day corporate woman across all aspects of her life, with a particular focus on fashion and beauty. Originally from Kansas City, she moved to NYC in 2012, where she lives with her hubby, their french bulldog, Batman, AKA their first child, and now she’s expecting a new baby in December. We partnered with her and NYDJ to give you the best looks for an expecting mother on the go, just in time for fall.
Thursday marked the first day of fall and if you’re anything like me, you’re starting to pack up all your summer clothes in preparation for the cooler days ahead. As an expecting momma, one of my biggest concerns is having nothing to wear for the last trimester of my pregnancy, but not wanting to fill my wardrobe full of maternity pieces just to get me through the end. One of the ways I’m able to avoid this potential hazard is by picking up a few key pieces to extend my wardrobe till my little one arrives in December. I’ve partnered with my friends at NYDJ (check out my last post with them here) to share the Ultimate Fall Wardrobe for the Expecting Mother, featuring their maternity line of denim. In the photos below, I’ll be wearing the the Ami skinny maternity leggings five different ways.
THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS
WORKWEAR: Throw on your favorite blazer or in my case, tweed jacked, comfy heels and oversized workbag for the perfectly chic workwear outfit.
DINNER WITH FRIENDS: Catching up with a friend on all the latest gossip, throw on something that will get your through dinner…comfortably.
OUT & ABOUT: If the only thing you want to wear is your tennis shoes, throw them on with your favorite hat and jacket and you’re ready to take on all your errands for the day
SHEATH WHITE DRESS
Ever since I saw Kristin Cavallari debut this dress during her pregnancy, a white fitted dress has been on my radar. This one in particular goes from day to night with minimal effort. As we know, white gets dirty easily, so I’ll probably have to keep this for date nights after the little one arrives. For these types of dresses that don’t have spandex, I always order a size up.
Workwear: Easy to throw on a long sleeve blouse for a daily workwear outfit.
Business Meeting: An easy dress to transition into business attire by adding a professional blazer and jacket.
Running Errands: Feel like dressing up to run a few errands, love this casual and comfy look! The heels can easily be switched out for flats.
LITTLE BLACK MATERNITY JEANS
Casual Office Style: Yes ma’ma, these are the perfect fit for those casual days at the office. Pick up a fancy blouse and heels (if still comfortable) and close our your workweek looking like the stylish momma you are!Everyday Outfit: The black cami is till a staple in my closet during my pregnancy, especially with these longer vests. If you’re a little too cold, try a long sleeved top, like here.
Colder Days: I’ve found peplum tops are flattering and stylish for the growing bump. For colder days, toss on your favorite trench coat, especially if rain is in the forecast… just don’t forget the umbrella!
Dog Park with the Pup: Fall is Batman’s favorite season, mostly because he can breath better (yay! no more humidity!). We love to walk down to Madison Square Park to play with all his friends. Anyone who’s been to a dog park knows, keep it casual, you never know what little pup will come jumping on your lap with muddy paws. That is Batman’s favorite way to meet people and get momma in trouble!
Cuddles at Home: We all need those days to just relax and unwind with our family, the NYDJ denim are comfortable enough for lounging around the house with a knit sweater or cardigan. For these days, I typically need lots of forced cuddles from Pfeiffer (and a lint roller). If you ever meet her, you’ll know why, she’s so soft!
