Maternity Essentials For Spring
Spring is almost here and it's that time of the year when you don't have to worry about being too uncomfortably hot or ridiculously too cold. It's the perfect in-between season and that is all the more reason to make sure you are ready to rock out with some maternity must-haves this spring.
Here are some awesome maternity must-haves every mom-to-be should think about for the coming spring season:
1. ALLERGY RELIEF
I hate to break it to you, mamas, but spring is pollen season and that means you will need to take measures to keep it at bay. Definitely pay a visit to your doctor to see which allergy medicine or nasal spray is safe for you to take during your pregnancy. Look into changing the air filters in your home and avoid or minimize outside activities if possible.
2. MATERNITY & NURSING TANK TOPS
Spring is all about color and as a preggo mama, you need to get yourself some cute and comfortable maternity tank tops. Cute jean jackets or wraps can be worn over tank tops and can be worn either up or down depending on your personal style. This is a must-have staple for any mom-to-be in the springtime.
3. FLAT SHOES
Depending on how far along you are, wearing heels can get a bit uncomfortable. Yes, heels do put a little pep in your step but wearing flats is a whole lot more comfortable and easy to slip on and off during pregnancy. You can invest in an array of different colors to give you a number of different choices when choosing an outfit. If you have the money to spend on quality flats, you can't go wrong with the pairs from Tieks. But if you are on a budget, Target and Payless have some affordable ones.
4. MATERNITY LEGGINGS
This is a spring maternity must-have! I always say maternity leggings are the best invention EVER! Morning, afternoon and night, maternity leggings are an essential staple for every mama-to-be. It's easy to put on, easy to dress up or down and the best part, they are stretchy and super comfortable for the spring season.
5. SUNDRESSES & MATERNITY SKINNY JEANS
During spring, sundress and skinny jeans go hand in hand. Maternity sundresses are pretty, colorful and make any preggo mama look absolutely stunning. Maternity skinny jeans are a must-have, too! You can dress it up with some cute tops and heels or dress it down with sneakers. To add a little spunk in your sundress fashion, add on a crop top jacket to give it a bit of edge.
Spring calls for outdoor activities and that means you have to protect yourself from the sun. Use and choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and make sure it is water-resistant. Also, ensure it provides broad-spectrum coverage which essentially means it protects you from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Be sure to apply it generously to exposed skin when outdoors and use every two hours.
7. SUNGLASSES AND SUNHATS
You and I both know sunglasses make any outfit look amazing and your pregnancy fashion will need a little 'pick me up' with some hot-looking shades. Apart from the fact that they will make you look fabulous, they protect your eyes from the sun and coupling that with a nice, chic sunhat will not only complete your outfit, but it will also act as a double layer in protecting your eyes and face from the sun. It's springtime, have fun and add some color in your maternity style! 😉
