Preggosphere: Tell us a little bit about yourself
Lauren: I am 23 years old and have been married to my wonderful husband for 3 years. We recently moved out to the country and are loving the space and quiet life it has brought us! Before I was pregnant, I was really diligent about fashion blogging but lately I have been slacking. I am excited to finish out this pregnancy with a lot more maternity fashion posts on the blog and I LOVE my new bump and learning everyday how to style it!
Preggosphere: What’s the best and worst part about being pregnant?
Lauren: BEST: Feeling your baby move and kick and squirm around inside of you. It truly is a living breathing miracle you are carrying around and it is such an amazing feeling! WORST: Honestly, I have had a super easy breezy pregnancy so far. I mean, I have had the normal aches and pains and what not but mostly, I would say the worst part about being pregnant is not being able to drink ice cold beers whenever I want, especially in this Texas summer heat! :)
Preggosphere: I guess you'll just have to settle for a regular ice tea for the heat right? LOL .So... How would you describe your fashion style? Has it changed since you got pregnant?
Lauren: A little bit western, a little rock n roll and a lot of hippy dippy. I would say over all, I have stayed true to that while being pregnant. Its easy to throw on the same caftan and cowboy boots I wore before I got pregnant! I do sport alot more leggings and yoga pants now a days though, and I am ok with that!
Preggosphere: If I raided your closet right now, what would I find most of?
Lauren: Vintage caftans and kimonos.
Preggosphere: What’s your go-to pregnancy outfit?
Lauren: A tight fitting, curve hugging maxi dress and some sort of heel or boot depending on where I am going.
Preggosphere: What brands do you love - maternity or otherwise?
Lauren: H&M maternity jeans , Free People dresses and alot of vintage finds.
Preggosphere: Are you skipping the heels while preggo or wear them throughout your pregnancy?
Lauren: I just can't let myself NOT wear a pair every once in a while. My feet are getting too swollen yet so until they do...heels all the way!
Preggosphere: Fill in the blank: I wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without
Lauren: Chapstick and water
Preggosphere: What moms do you think have/had great maternity style?
Lauren: I love the way Gwen Stefani mastered the perfect preggo looks and of course, Nicole Richie the ultimate boho mama!
Preggosphere: Are you a trend setter or do you prefer to follow the latest trend? Or a little bit of both?
Lauren: I think I am a little bit of both! I always end up wearing exactly what I want to wear BUT I do love to follow a good trend every now and again. For instance, I am pumped about socks and clogs for fall/winter of this year!
Preggosphere: Thank you so much for answering all our questions Lauren! You totally ROCK and you are SOOOOO #bumpstyleapproved!
