Brrrr, cold weather is here to stay! And although we might not quite be ready for snowy weather just yet, I think everyone has noticed the crisp wind and falling leaves by now. But hey, that just means it’s hot cocoa, PJ’s and partial hibernation for 6 months right? WRONG! Well, maybe we can keep the hot cocoa, and PJ’s at night :)
The point is, it’s cold, but you can look great, and stay warm, without turning into that kid from a Christmas Story . It’s a common style myth that adding layers and bundling up has to make you look bigger than you really are. Pregnant women often worry about this even more, because they actually are a bit bigger than they’re used to. But that shouldn’t keep you from tasteful layers and looking great.
Follow these tips to make sure you stay warm and comfortable, but still look chic this season!
